WHAT IT IS: Kérastase Résistance Thérapiste Collection

WHY ITS INNOVATIVE: This unique product formula utilizes the exclusive Kérastase compound, FIBRA-KAP™ (info on this below), as well as sap from the Resurrection Plant (Myrothamnus Flabellifolia), which has the unique ability to come back to life, after 10 years of near death once placed in water. When utilized in the hair products, the sap formula reactivates hair KAPs synthesis and ultimately revives hair.

MORE INFORMATION: After 15 years of research, Kérastase Paris introduces the brand’s latest innovation, Résistance Thérapiste. Until now, it was never known how important of a role KAPs (Keratin Associated Proteins), play in supporting the overall structure of hair. When hair follicles experience damage, KAPs disappear and the internal architecture of the fiber collapses. Designed for very damaged, over-processed hair, Résistance Thérapiste combines essential ingredients to instantly revive hair. After use, this collection revives the fiber, leaving hair shiny, smooth, and repaired.

WHAT IT IS: SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50

WHY ITS INNOVATIVE: Offers SPF 50 protection but also applies completely matte with a slight tint, perfect for combating shine in oily skin and leaving your complexion looking powdery-perfect (without that white, greasy residue). It’s also popular as a primer used prior to makeup application.

MORE INFORMATION: An all-mineral SPF from the leaders in sun protection smoothes, protects, and mattifies even in humid conditions. High-protection SPF can be challenging for combination and oily complexions, often creating a heavy look on the skin and clogging pores. Physical Matte UV Defense has a proven dual function against sun and shine, providing SPF 50 broad spectrum coverage in a weightless mousse texture. The aerated silica technology is able to absorb up to 15x its weight in oil, and the optimized smoothing base and translucent color spheres refine and perfect the appearance of skin tone and texture. The formula is noncomedogenic, and proven to maintain a matte finish even in hot, humid conditions.

WHAT IT IS: MISSION Athletecare Enduracool™ Instant Cooling Collection

WHY ITS INNOVATIVE: There is no reason to sweat and melt your hair and makeup – either during or after application. And now you don’t have to. The latest in performance technology, made from a proprietary performance fabric that cools to approximately 30 degrees below the average body temperature in under a minute when soaked with water or sweat, wrung out and then snapped in the air to activate the cooling properties.

MORE INFORMATION: Can be used while blow-drying hair or applying makeup at home – preventing meltdowns from happening before you’ve even stepped outdoors – and/or once you’re on the go for the day (walking to the subway, waiting for your AC to cool down your car, working in hot offices, watching kids/professional sporting events, outdoor dining… the list goes on and on. The revolutionary, high-performance light-weight multi-yarn fiber absorbs and retains moisture into its fabric core, circulating the molecules while regulating the rate of evaporation to ensure an instant and prolonged “air conditioner” effect to cool your head, neck, shoulders and other pulse points. The fiber simultaneously wicks moisture away from the body so the fabric feels cool against the skin, not wet.

The cooling technology lasts up to two hours before needing to be re-activated and each of the machine-washable and chemical-free wearables will continue to perform for as long as you need it. The collection provides fabrics in everyday necessities including towels, head bands, wristbands, and hats in a variety of bright colors and patterns. Added bonus – Ultra Violet Protection Factor (UPF 50) provides sun protection when covering the skin, making it the perfect outdoors summer essential to stay cool and protected. Available at sporting goods retailers nationwide including Dick’s Sporting Goods, The Sports Authority, Finish Line and Modell’s. To find out more, visit
