You won’t need to worry about the cold drying out your skin with this moisturizer thanks to the ceramides in it—which strengthen your skin barrier and moisturize your skin. “Ceramides are like the spackle between skin cell tiles,” dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, previously told Well+Good. “They fill in cracks between cells in the outer skin layer to prevent loss of hydration and protect the skin from the environment.”
If you’re in need of some new eyeshadow shades for the upcoming holiday party season, look no further than this nine-shade tarte palette. The real star of the show is the concealer though, according to dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD, FAAD. “Makeup with hydrating ingredients [is] a good idea when the weather cools,” she previously told Well+Good. “Ingredients like squalene and hyaluronic acid can…improve how well [your skin] holds onto moisture.”
Everyone needs a good eye cream—and this one is full of ingredients derms love. “This eye cream combines ingredients that provide anti-aging and hydrating benefits, crucial for delicate eye skin,” Rahi Sarbaziha, MD previously told Well+Good. “Together, they fortify the skin barrier, sustain hydration, and provide antioxidant protection.”
Ready to get your glow on? Then you need to grab this collagen-packed set from ELEMIS. The balm can be used as a cleanser, makeup remover, and nourishing face mask, and will leave your face feeling silky smooth (plus, it smells *amazing*). The exfoliator will help you remove all your dead skin cells and leave you with radiant, refreshed skin. And since it’s currently $57 off, it’s definitely not a deal you want to miss.
Vitamin C is arguably a derm’s favorite vitamin—especially when it comes to preserving skin. This set is chockful of vitamin C, and the serum features another powerful ingredient: retinol. “[The combination of vitamin C and retinol] can be a game-changer for improving signs of aging like fine lines and evening out skin texture,” dermatologist Jeannette Graf, MD, previously told Well+Good. Multitasking beauty products are always a win.
Ever been curious what you’d look like with lip fillers? Nix the needles, but get the plump with this set of lip glosses. “It has several ingredients that contribute to its success as a lip plumper,” facial plastic surgeon Michael Somenek, MD, previously told Well+Good. “It contains capsicum frutescens resin, which is a wild chili pepper, and cinnamal, the oil that gives cinnamon its spice. The irritants in these two ingredients cause a tingling or burning sensation when applied to the lips and can temporarily increase the size of the lips.”
Add a few of these steals to your cart ASAP to get the most out of the QVC beauty event—you’ll be thankful for the pick-me-up they’ll provide when the busyness of the holidays starts up.
