The 2023 SELF Healthy Beauty Awards

SELF’s annual Healthy Beauty Awards are back for a twenty-fourth year (!), and we’re so excited to introduce our 201 winners to you. After receiving more than 3,100 submissions from more than 1,800 brands, editors went through each one, determining what was worthy of moving forward to the next round. From there, we called in 1,200 of those products and put 47 testers—a combination of SELF editors, skin care enthusiasts, dermatologists, influencers, and everyday people who span a wide range of skin and hair types, ages, and even professions—to work. We lathered, dabbed, and massaged; shaved, swished, and scrubbed; and painted, patted, and powdered our way through, eventually narrowing it down to just the best of the best. 

Here, you’ll find new skin care, hair care, body care, and makeup products that are effective, efficient, and delightful. The most important part of any beauty routine is that it feels good—and we hand-picked every single one of these winners with that top of mind. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the scroll—the 2023 Healthy Beauty Awards are here.
