Step up your skin routine with a four-pack of Jaxon Lane’s Bro Mask, a hydrogel sheet mask that includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, green tea, licorice and ginger, or a six-pack of the brand’s Eye Gels, which have similar ingredients but target under-eye dark circles and puffy skin. Just remember to treat yourself well now — whether that’s post-sports or after a long WFH day — and you’ll likely see results over time. Face mask, $28; eye gels, $30. jaxonlane.com
Hit the postgame press conference or a video shoot wearing the 5MM Open-Link Bracelet Antiquated with pavé diamonds from Santa Monica-based Hoorsenbuhs, which is no stranger to selling luxury goods with a West Coast twist.

This time of year, nights in Los Angeles are often chilly, even if you’re leaving practice and quickly hopping into the back of an SUV. The new Teca Cálido water-repellent hooded jacket will keep you warm for that short walk and more, thanks to its recycled-polyester inners and repurposed taffeta. Surprisingly, the jacket offers two looks in one, with one side color-blocked with bright hues. Sales of the jacket and a colorful slip-on go toward equity in the outdoors through grants to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hollywood and Denver. $150. teva.com, rei.com
