Air Supply

Weighing as little as an iPhone and reducing dry time by up to 75%, the latest luxury hair dryers blow the competition away. Labeled “smart” because of their self-clean functions—like a vacuum, hair dryers need to have their filters cleaned because dust and lint build-up slows down drying and can cause fires—the new Gama IQ2 Perfetto ($430), Bio:Ionic Smart-X ($329), and CHI Lava PRO ($337.49) boast strong yet quiet engines that move air around faster and infuse strands with negative ions to fight frizz and damage. The Gama IQ2 Perfetto also comes with a revolutionary star-shaped nozzle, which volumizes fine hair and tames cowlicks without causing flyaways.


Beauty Buzz

Backyard bee hotels have been trending since the pandemic popularized gardening, but you don’t need to fill your landscape with bamboo reeds, pine cones, or carboard rolls to support the precious pollinators. Naturally antimicrobial, moisturizing, and full of vitamins and amino acids, honey is more than just a sweetener. Highland Park’s Flamingo Estate’s limited-edition Functional Honey ($180) blends New Zealand manuka honey with cacao, rose petals, cinnamon, and tulsi into an antioxidant-rich, endorphin-releasing elixir to stir into tea or spread on toast. Clean, unisex skincare line Valoie utilizes honey in every product, from its RENSE Gel-Balm Cleanser ($42) to AKTIV Pore Repair serum ($85). sk*p bee farm in upstate New York launched a natural deodorant this past spring, mixing honey with tapioca starch to counteract odor and wetness without aluminum ($14). For cold season, Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Throat Spray ($14) is a must-have; its propolis-based, 3-in-1 Complete Gut Health ($45) and Royal Jelly Brain Fuel ($30) round out a healthy routine. Sweet indeed.

How-tos for “Kate Moss” cheekbones keep trending on social media. Now the supermodel has her own YouTube video, which reveals what she actually uses: Hourglass Cosmetics’ Ambient Lighting powders, which are getting a makeover for the holidays. Based in Venice Beach, the brand just released a limited-edition collection of palettes with a mix of new and bestselling highlighter, blush, bronzer, and light-filtering shades. Digital watercolor artist Katie Scott designed the eye-catching cases, and 5% of profits benefit the Nonhuman Rights Project to protect animal welfare.
