Some things aren’t meant to be done year-round. Sopiea Mitchell, a former cosmetic chemist, applies that idea to Sophistry, her new line of seasonal skin care.
Mitchell customizes her products for each client based on age, lifestyle, and, yes, time of year. You’ll get a highly targeted regimen: Vitamin serums (A, C, and E) are recommended individually for a few months, then swapped out to keep their effectiveness. The gentle foaming cleanser (to be used only at night) is mixed with moisturizing and anti-inflammatory agents like algae.
We love her hydrating eye cream — and the fact that once you’ve had a consultation, you can just call in your order.
’Tis the season to simplify your life.
