Don't let the sunshine fool you. The "winter" weather is still taking a toll on our skin. Lucky for us, there's an increasing amount of local brands devoted to crafting natural products to benefit your bod, face, and hair and save you from seasonal dryness and dullness.
A gang of LA-based beauty brands have packed their products with skin-loving ingredients like anti-aging argan oil, soothing blue tansy oil, and moisture-boosting shea butter to offer you serious salvation. From a beet-boasting tinted lip balm for just $15 to heavy-hitting facial salve for $160 (still reasonable compared to La Mer standards), our list of nature-based beauty booty has loot in a range of price points, so you're likely to find at least one item to bring your skin or hair back to lustrous life.
