Easy on the Eyes
Known for its clean approach to cosmetics, Beautycounter has nixed more than 1,500 questionable compounds often found in makeup. Now the company is also taking the guesswork out of how to apply eye shadow with its Color Shade Eye Duos. Choose from six versatile shade pairings. Simply sweep the lighter hue over the lid and the darker one in the crease. Each pan is fragrance-free and contains porcelain-flower extract, an antioxidant-rich botanical from Thailand.

To soothe muscles and stiff joints and help reduce inflammation, slip into a magnesium salt–infused soak. Naturopathica gets its salts from a 250-million-year-old European salt bed that’s so magnesium-rich, the product delivers 50 percent more of the mineral per ounce than Epsom salts. It also contains sweet birch oil, which Native Americans used like aspirin.
Sweet Birch magnesium bath flakes, $36, naturopathica.com.
