Ten new beauty treats guaranteed to make 2014 one very good (and gorgeous) year.
La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream and Dry Oil
La Prairie went to extremes to find the best fine-line-fighting technology—scaling the Swiss Alps to discover plants that thrive in harsh conditions. The trio of botanical stars blended into the brand's latest complex? Soldanella alpina, which uses energy stored in its leaves to melt through the ice; purple saxifrage, an arctic species that envelops its blooms in ice crystals to survive freezing temps; and Swiss snow algae, which lies dormant during the winter and appears as a "crimson blanket" on the surface come spring. Combined, this cold-weather cocktail defends skin against stress and helps prevent collagen degradation. $300 each; Available February 2014 at www.laprairie.com.
