When her skin is feeling tight and moisture-sapped, Ashunta Sheriff, a New York City makeup artist, reaches for an old family remedy to get a healthy radiance: She rubs a freshly cut lemon half over her complexion (the fruit’s natural acids remove flakes and smooth skin), then steams her skin over a pot of warm water. Next, Sheriff slathers her face and neck with Jarrow Formulas Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, a luxuriously dense emollient (jarrow.com for stores). “It makes my skin glow like a Tahitian princess,” she says with a laugh. Finally, Sheriff coats her lips with a favorite botanical salve, Decléor Paris Nourishing Lip Balm ($16, decleordirect.com).
