We test a lot of beauty products; these problem-solvers top our list of staff favorites.
Obagi Professional-C Serum
This super-concentrated antioxidant serum protects skin against sun damage and environmental stress, but, truth be told, we love it because it evens out pigmentation. $75/15-percent and $95/20-percent formula at Skintastic, 6020 W. Parker Rd., Ste. 400, Plano. 972-620-3223. www.skintastic.com.

La Roche-Posay Biomedic Retinol 30 and La Roche-Posay Active C
Our publisher swears by this combination: The active C anti-wrinkle treatment contains L-ascorbic acid to improve skin texture and radiance, while the retinol cream tightens pores, refines skin, and smoothes away lines. $40 and $44 from Dr. Christine Brown, 3801 Gaston Ave., Ste. 302. 214-828-0016.
Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask
A skin-softening powerhouse combining pomegranate, kiwi, and mango essences with moisture-intense shea butter and vitamin E for a sweet-smelling way to combat dry, winter skin. $60 at Neiman Marcus Downtown, One Marcus Square. 214-741-6911. www.neimanmarcus.com.
