Congratulations – if you are reading this, then you have survived the crazy, frenetic season known broadly as “The Holidays”. Your wallet may be a little lighter, stomach a little fuller and a feeling that can probably be described simply as being “burnt out” has set in. Though you may be feeling tired, you don’t have to look it. Malin+Goetz offers some fantastic problem+solution products to revive and freshen tired looking complexions.

The Detox Face Mask ($40 and winner of the Allure Beauty Award for Best Face mask) is a simple, oxygenating gel mask that opens the pours and deeply cleanses black heads and impurities, while at the same time infusing the skin with oxygen, green tea extract and stable vitamin c. The result is a dewy soft, refreshed and brightened complexion.

If you’re like me, you’ve been getting extra festive for the holidays, and a simple moisturizer may not be quite enough for thirsty, tired skin. One of my favorite products in the entire line is the Replenishing Face Serum ($68), which utilizes tried and true hyaluronic acid to pull your moisturizer as well as moisture from the air deeper into the skin, helping to smooth out and plump up any lines and wrinkles that may be appearing a bit deeper than usual. It also gives your skin an instant brightness and clarity, and who’s going to say no to that?

So whether you rang in the New Year at a posh cocktail party, a wild rager, or just on your couch with a bottle of champagne, don’t let it interfere with looking your best doing it – we make it easy!

Have a happy and healthy everyone – we’ve made it into 2012!
