During the holiday party season, we pay extra special attention our skincare routine. Smooth, lit-from-within skin is not only the best accessory ever—it ensures our makeup stays put long after the clock strikes midnight. Below, our picks for a flawless, photo-ready complexion:

“Winter weather is bad news for radiance. To get camera ready in a flash, I exfoliate with Koh Gen Do’s Soft Gommage Gel. It gently removes dull, dead skin cells, revealing a totally revitalized complexion.” —Erika, Creative Director

“In the past, I’d get my skin holiday-ready with a facial, but who has the time? Now, I just reach for my ZIIP. Blemishes, dullness , dark circles…nothing is too much for this tool to handle.” —Lisa, Founder

“Holiday parties + cocktails = a lot of Kodak moments. To keep my skin cool, calm, and ready for its closeup, I use Allies of Skin’s The 24/7 Kit. Filled with handy multitaskers, it can tackles any common skin concern—fast! —Holly, Sr. Merchandising Manager
