CHELSEA—Simplify your skincare routine at Story tomorrow night with S.W. Basics as the Brooklyn-based brand celebrates the launch of its new book, Skin Cleanse. Founder Adina Grigore will be on hand from 6pm to 8pm to show visitors how to create skin treatments with ingredients like coffee and olive oil. Head here to RSVP—and to see what other events the Well Being-themed shop has coming up this week (Rocco DiSpirito, 40 Days of Dating).

MIDTOWN—The MoMA Design Store, the gold standard of museum gift shops, is holding its most massive sale ever starting tomorrow and running through March 1st. Find more than 3,000 titles—from art history to art criticism, architecture, design, photography, film, media, and more—at up to 50% off.

NOHO—Work out for a cause (an actual cause-cause, not like, tightening your abs) at a charity ride with Cyc Astor next Sunday, February 22nd at 1:30pm. Your $25 ticket will go towards County Harvest, which provides food for Westchester residents in need—head over to Staying Skinny In the City for details.

EVERYWHERE—Through March 15th, all Uniqlo locations will take your gently used clothing and donate it to organizations like the New York Department of Homeless Services. In exchange for your generosity, you'll get a coffee sleeve made out of recycled Uniqlo jeans. Part of the brand's "All-Product Recycling Initiative," Uniqlo hopes to collect 30,000 pieces nationwide.
