* What I use: Tanya Barlow chooses treatments that repair and redensify

Margaret Hema Millennium Face and Body Oil, $ 150

I have used this product for years and love that Hema products are created and made in New Zealand. Perfect for my aging skin.

Kevin Murphy Young Again Treatment Oil, $ 74

My current hair treatment that suits my thin hair, smoothing flyaways and adding shine.

MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in ‘Whirl’, $ 35

I love my MAC lipsticks! My favorite everyday color is Whirl Matte Lipstick. This has been my “go” for a very long time.

Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet Foundation, $ 94

I have been using it for years and love the natural coverage it gives me.

Emma Lewisham Skin Reset Serum, $ 148

There is something very calming about this product. Maybe it’s the delicate scent! Ideal to apply after cleansing in the evening or in the morning.
