"Because my skin is temperamental, annoyingly specific, and differs a ton from my face to my arms or legs, I have to approach every product category differently. For body products, I look for the most hydrating options possible (even more so in the Winter), but for face products, I try to avoid most oils or overly thick textures. When it comes to makeup, I'm somewhere in between: it really depends on what kind of shape my skin is in at the time, but generally I like products to feel as lightweight as possible." — Carrie Carrollo, native associate beauty editor
"Call me a weirdo, but several years ago, I pulled the Aussie Mega Hold Hairspray ($5) from the depths of my mom's product closet, and it's been my go-to ever since. The grape-y scent is not only reminiscent of my childhood shampoos (in the best, most #nostalgic way), but it holds my hair in place without leaving any crunch whatsoever."
