"Forget AmEx -- don’t leave home without flawlessly sculpted bone structure! Shade & Illuminate is the ultimate user-friendly product in the ever-changing world of beauty.

Tom Ford Brow Sculptor 

[section single_product=tom-ford-brow-sculptor]

"Your face is fine art -- don't display it without a frame! Eyebrows frame, balance, and define the face. Brow Sculptor has all you need for perfectly groomed brows. I love that this incredible tool is equipped with a sharpener to ensure precise application with each use. For a more natural look, hold the center of the component then feather in color and blend through using the groomer. Always remember: the finished product should look like hair."

Tom Ford High Definition Eye Liner 

[section single_product=tom-ford-high-definition-eye-liner]

"This sleek product makes precision detail eye defining a breeze with its fine point. This is the perfect tool for tightlining (lining the lash base), which gives the appearance of thicker lashes and makes the eyes stand out with any makeup look. Once this long wearing formula is in place you can count on it to last all day without smudging!"

Tom Ford Ombré Leather AW16 Private Blend Fragrance

[section single_product=tom-ford-ombre-leather-aw16]

"A whole new way to wear leather! Tom Ford’s Tuscan Leather was the scent that made me fall in love with his Private Blend collection. You can only imagine my excitement to hear that Tom Ford was going to develop a scent for the runway using black leather. The moment this fragrance warmed to my skin I could see why the brand describes it as having a 'tactile sensuality.' As the notes of suede and leather unfold, the full potential of the fragrance inspires you to close your eyes and take a deep breath."

5 Favorites: Heat Wave

5 Favorites: Heat Wave

Warm weather skin is improved by a carefree “less is more” approach, but with high temperatures and humidity it’s easy for your sought-after glow to become an “oh no.” This collection of products, and skincare tips from board-certified dermatologist Noëlle Sherber, M.D., F.A.A.D. is designed to leave you calm, cool, and complexion-perfected when life heats up, whether you’re in the boardroom or at the beach.

[section asset=question-1.png]

Eve Lom Cleanser

[section single_product=eve-lom-cleanser-50ml]

“This oil-based cleanser from the U.K. removes even the most tenacious sunscreen. I recommend taking a dime-sized amount of the balm, warming it between your fingertips since the natural formula can solidify, then massaging into dry skin focusing on areas prone to clogged pores; this will dissolve oils in your pores since oil dissolves readily in oil. Then, dampen the accompanying muslin cloth in warm water and hold it over your face, repeating the cycle three times to turn the balm into a milk; then gently buff to remove.”

[section asset=question-2.png]

La Mer The Cleansing Gel

[section single_product=copy-of-la-mer-the-cleansing-gel]

“In high humidity I recommend a double cleansing: this means using an oil-based balm followed by an oil-free gel. Whereas some foaming formulations can be drying, this oil-free gel from La Mer is gentle on the skin since it is rich in nourishing seawater minerals. After the Eve Lom Cleanser, follow with this luxuriously lathering gel for an at-home facial experience and completely thorough cleansing. I also love this gel for a one-and-done after warm weather morning workouts because it’s instantly refreshing and leaves the complexion in balance.”

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

[section single_product=caudalie-beauty-elixir-3-4-ounces]

“D.C.’s heat is intense (Washington was formally considered a tropical hardship post for foreign diplomats until air conditioning arrived in the 1940s!), and facial mists are ideal companions in the heat because they employ the principle of evaporative cooling; as they dry on the skin they lower its temperature. This spritz from Caudalie boasts of a purposeful set of ingredients to keep skin hydrated and moisturized: grape, orange blossom, rosemary, and balm mint for an extra cooling burst on contact. Mist on top of makeup to refresh the skin on a hot day or night.”

La Mer The Broad Spectrum SPF50 UV Protecting Fluid

[section single_product=la-mer-the-broad-spectrum-spf50-uv-protecting-fluid]

“Fluid texture is a meaningful innovation in sunscreen technology since SPF rating is performed with 1 tsp for face and neck. It can be challenging to apply this amount with a thick formulation and applying ½ tsp lowers the effective SPF dramatically! This formulation from La Mer is so incredibly lightweight that it makes it easy to wear the correct amount to keep skin protected, and it’s enriched with nourishing hydration and powerful antioxidants. I find that both men and women love this sunscreen and stock up once they try it.”

[section asset=question-5.png]

3Lab M Cream

[section single_product=3lab-m-cream]

“It’s key to differentiate between moisture (oil) and hydration (water) in skincare. In hot humid summer weather skin generally needs less moisture and more hydration, making a water-rich gel like 3Lab M Cream a fantastic fit. This can be applied more generously overnight to plump up the skin like the “sleep masks” now popular in Asia, or applied more sheerly during the day under sunscreen since it contains potent antioxidants forming a second line of defense against DNA and collagen damage from UV exposure.”

5 Favorites: Poolside

board certified dermatologist Dr. Noëlle Sherber gives an exclusive look at the ultimate in-sun essentials to protect and perfect your skin

Before we say our final bon voyage to summer, a few final poolside moments may be on the agenda before fall. Whether it's lounging overlooking the Caribbean or relaxing behind the privet hedges in the Hamptons that beckons, Dr. Noëlle Sherber has you covered (truly, from head to toe) with her coveted sunscreen and après-sun selections to protect and nourish the skin.... and who doesn’t love when your beach bag can double as a portable spa stocked with some of the best products in anti-aging.

Soleil Toujours with Dr. Noëlle Sherber Perpetual Radiance Tinted Fluid SPF20

[section single_product=soleil-toujours-with-dr-noelle-sherber-perpetual-radiance-tinted-fluid-spf20]

"This natural-meets-high-tech formulation took me more than 2 years to develop because we worked with 3 different labs until it was just right. I often recommend facial sunscreens with a hint of tint because, not only do they perfect the complexion, but you can see if you miss an area, which is key to preventing sunburn. I had a personal interest in creating a 100% mineral sunscreen because I have sensitive skin but was committed to creating one with a truly second-skin finish. This fluid also incorporates powerful antioxidants and antiagers at clinically active levels which is rare in a sunscreen, and the click pen packaging is a breeze for hands-free poolside reapplication. When I pull this out of my tote I always get questions about it!"

Natura Bissé C+C Dry Oil Antioxidant Sun Protection SPF30

[section single_product=natura-bisse-c-c-dry-oil-antioxidant-sun-protection-spf30]

"Not too rich and slick, but not sting-y and drying, this is the Goldilocks 'just right' mist of a dry oil sunscreen which has become my poolside favorite. It absorbs quickly into the skin leaving it smooth and moisturized and has good water resistance to last through a cooling dip in the pool or surf. I love this both for body and for hair, which can easily get dried out and brittle from summer sun. The formula is enriched with high quality vitamin C, as well as vitamin D, and the airless packaging is great for travel. Citrus oils can be photosensitizing, but this Spanish brand did its homework and made this citrus-scented product sun safe even in tropical conditions."

Eve Lom Kiss Mix

[section single_product=eve-lom-kiss-mix]

"It's so important to protect your lips from sun exposure and lip balm without SPF acts like a reflector, only intensifying UV rays which can lead to precancerous skin damage and even skin cancer. This extra emollient balm contains mineral sunscreen zinc oxide to reflect sun. If you find that your lips sting or get chapped when you use lip balms with chemical sunscreens, look for a balm with a mineral sunscreen. This balm also contains mint for a cooling sensation that's super refreshing in hot weather."

[section asset=question-4.png]

SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray

[section single_product=sk-ii-mid-day-essence-spray]

"One of my favorite poolside tips is to get an ice bucket, stock it with mineral water so that you are sure to stay hydrated, and then also stash this facial mist in among the ice cubes. A spritz of the cool mist is so refreshing in the heat. The active ingredient, Pitera, was discovered in the sake fermentation process in Japan when brewery workers' hands showed fewer signs of aging than did the rest of their skin. Pitera is rich in vitamins and minerals that counteract uneven pigmentation that can be triggered by sun exposure."

TOM FORD Soleil Blanc

[section single_product=soleil-blanc]

"This fragrance is a distillation of glamorous sunshine in its most sophisticated form. The pool at the Isle de France on the island of St. Barths where we married (pictured above) is one of my most favorite places and Soleil Blanc takes me there in scent memory, even if I'm in the office! When I received a pre-launch sample vial of this fragrance it was an instant love-fest for me and I stashed it in my makeup bag immediately, where it has remained since."
