  • Use a hydrating serum with your PM moisturizer. Skin Amnesty Infusion, a serum rich in antioxidants or St. Barth Avocado Oil along with your night moisturizer makes a huge impact to keep your skin healthy during the dry winter months.

Taking care of your skin not only makes you look great, but your skin feels and is healthier!  Healthy supple skin is your best defense against extreme dryness which can lead to cracked areas and leave you prone to infections and sickness.
