Wellness guru Melisse Gelula, co-founder of Well and Good NYC, takes her skincare very seriously. When I talked to her for this month’s Birchbox Crush, we spent nearly an hour chatting about different types of cleansers, exfoliators, oils, serums, and moisturizers. The big takeaway? Switch things up. Your skin changes from day to day, season to season. The products that work perfectly during the winter aren’t going to translate to summer. Thanks to her, I’ve swapped out my usual salicylic acid wash, which was too drying on my skin during wintertime, and am using a creamy cleansing milk by Dr. Hauschka instead. I’ve also thrown a face oil and rich moisturizer into the mix—both to great effect. Read her 7 Habits of Highly Effective Skincare now—it’ll change the way you think about your products.
