Toss/Try/Buy

January's refresh-your-routine guide from MC's beauty editors.

Toss/Try/Buy

TOSS Your daily microdermabrasion scrub (or save it until spring). Under siege from winter wind and cold, skin doesn't need an everyday abrasive.

TRY Mild, nonstripping washes that use probiotics (the same good bacteria found in yogurt) to pamper skin between exfoliations, found in Nude and Clinique Medical ($27.50 to $85).

BUY Clinique Turnaround Radiance Peel Once-a-Week System ($55), which comes with a tube of Calming Cream for extra soothing.

Toss/Try/Buy

TOSS Old-school pumice bar soaps that scrape and dry out hands (unless you're a painter and stock your studio with green Lava).

TRY New-generation hand creams from Eucerin and Lubriderm that contain dry starches like oat flour, so hydrated fingers feel silky, not slippery.

BUY Liquid formulas like Thymes Essentials Hand Scrub ($18) and Lippmann Helping Hand Scrub ($34, above), with skin-smoothing exfoliators suspended in moisturizing cleansers.

Toss/Try/Buy

TOSS Those leaky plastic travel bottles you're forever trying to funnel your face wash into.

TRY TSA-approved single-use facial wipes (tops at mopping up in-flight spills, too).

BUY Eco-friendly Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes ($12), which are biodegradable; proceeds go to helping save polar bears.

Toss/Try/Buy

TOSS: Last year's hotel-room shampoos - especially if you have fresh highlights that need extra TCL.

TRY: Investing in moisturizing cleansers low in harsh, shade-altering chemicals so you can space out your salon touch-ups.

BUY: Paraben-free Neil George Everyday Cleanse Shampoo ($20) and conditioner from the eponymous Beverly Hills salon that's a hip hair-haven to Reese, J.Lo, and Renee.
