A falling economy, environmental woes, a prolonged war and an upcoming presidential election: this fall, skin care's entering the age of anxiety, confronting everything from eternal dermatological concerns about wrinkles and large pores to increasingly relevant global issues like climate change and pollution. To take these on, beauty companies are marshaling increasingly high-tech resources and research, but combining them with some distinctly traditional botanical ingredients. From cleansers and serums to masks, concentrates and day creams, products are multitasking like never before, marrying synthetic and holistic approaches and promising help for weary, worried complexions.Welcome to beauty in the 21st century.
