A trusted doc's healthy beauty picks
We already love exploring the link between health and beauty on Dr. Oz’s website YouBeauty.com. So when he launched BeautySage.com, a new e-commerce destination for products tested by cosmetic chemists and proven to live up to their health claims, we knew we were in good hands.
The BeautySage team makes sure all scientific claims are legitimate, all potential risks are clearly stated and any “organic” or “natural” labels substantiated. Here are a few beauty finds that made the cut:
Kneipp Joint and Muscle Rescue Bath Put down that bottle of ibuprofen and take a holistic approach to curing sore joints with this herbal bath oil ($20). Pour a capful into running water and the revitalizing arnica will soothe muscles and reduce swelling.
Sophyto Exfoliating Treatment Resurfacing treatments are a dime a dozen. But the Dual-Action Exfoliating Treatment by Sophyto ($30) leaves a more vibrant complexion than the rest (and prevents redness) by exfoliating with amethyst powder and pineapple enzymes.
Breakout Banisher This facial cleanser from Bayberry Naturals ($17) claims to clean pores and soothe inflamed skin. BeautySage’s chemists found that activated charcoal and lavender distillates really do the job.
RMS Cheek Stain When it comes to blush, we usually don’t think past the color. But with RMS’s Lip2Cheek stain in Illusive ($36), you get a long-lasting rosy glow that also softens and replenishes skin.
