Luscious lift

By Meagan Albrechtson

Okay, so maybe I don’t have to worry about wrinkles yet, but there’s never any harm in making my skin as luscious and supple as possible. My face, especially, has to endure a lot during these hot sweaty summer months, when I forget to apply the SPF on marathon beach days or have late night patio outings.

Luckily there’s a little miracle potion to help:  Japanese makeup guru Shu Uemura’s Phyto Black Lift Radiance Boosting Lotion ($55, 866-465-8736). While I’ll admit that “toning” my skin has never been a high priority in my beauty regime, this sweet-smelling stuff actually leaves my face feel soft and dewy. Made with exotic ingredients like Japanese deep-sea water and lychee extract, it feels gentle, but has just the right amount of tingling sensation. A few more weeks of using this and I’ll be looking as doll-like as Scarlett Johansson.
