When Ulli Haslacher moved from her native Vienna to Southern California, the culture shock extended to her skin, as the hot and dry weather caused problems she’d never before encountered. That gave her an idea: skin-care products based not on particular issues, like acne or age spots, but on where you happen to live. Today, her company, Pour Moi, bases its formulas on ­climate, “the main factor that has an impact,” Haslacher says. Users take a climate quiz on the company’s website, which helps them find the right stuff—­adjusted to account for factors like humidity, temperature, altitude and more—­whether they’re in dry desert heat or a frigid northern forest. One kit includes a balancer, a serum and two day creams. —Cady Lang
