Deep Blue Something
There’s plenty to be said for drinking eight glasses of water a day. Consider the host of healthful benefits of proper hydration: better digestion, muscle and joint lubrication, and even fatigue relief. It can also do wonders for skin health when incorporated properly, which wasn’t lost on dermatologist to the stars Dr. Erno Laszlo when he gave the clear stuff a central role in his landmark product line nearly 80 years ago. Marilyn Monroe was a fan; peer closely at the LAPD’s investigative photos of her bedroom at the time of her death and you’ll see a Laszlo jar beneath the nightstand. Renowned for its ability to work with the skin’s natural pH, the iconic brand remains just as aqua-focused today, with its latest innovation focusing on the eyes. Its Firmarine Eye Therapy is a silky formula packed with ingredients like amino acid-rich spirulina maxima (a.k.a. sustainable fresh water algae); glycosaminoglycans; moisturizing aloe extract; vitamins A, C, and E; and, of course, sea water aplenty. The lightweight serum is instantly soothing and tightening on the delicate eye area, and manages not to compete with any makeup you layer over it—a feature of which Norma Jean would’ve no doubt approved.
