Beauty Trend Watch: Smooth Move

The change of seasons' weather sitch -- cooler, dryer air -- makes for some scaly bits here and there, not to mention itchy, taut skin from head to toe. To the rescue: Argan oil, a miracle ingredient that moisturizes supremely but doesn’t ever feel sticky or greasy.

The ultra-light oil is sourced from the seeds of a tree that hails from Morocco and can be found in all sorts of treatments. For facial skin, try Josie Maran’s pure Argan Oil serum. To smooth brittle hair, I’m obsessed with Moroccanoil Treatment, and for scaly spots on the body like knees and elbows, there’s nothing better than Kiehl’s Argan Superbly Restorative Skin Salve.

In fact, dewy Claire Danes tells that she loves the stuff: "It’s my favorite moisturizer. I can use it on my face, my lips or anywhere I need a little extra moisture."

Slather it on and get your glow going!
