Now that it is officially fall, the cooler temperatures are here to stay. For me, that means my skin will be getting drier and drier. It is important to take notice of your skin changes, especially now as the seasons are changing. Right now I am all about products to get my skin winter and cold weather ready, while erasing some of the damage from the summer. These are the products I am using to do just that.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Polish
This polish is bringing my skin back to life. It has been dry and dull from spending so much time outside over the summer. The gentle formula uses natural exfoliants that help to slough away dead, dry skin as it resurfaces the complexion to reveal brighter, more smooth skin. I use this every day in the shower on my face and neck.
Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum
No matter how much sunscreen I use, my dark spots are becoming more apparent. This serum uses 2% Hydroquinone that is proven to fade existing dark spots, age spots and freckles. It is actually the strongest formula you can get without a prescription and it works fast. It also contains an advanced skin lightening peptide and glycolic acid, that when used together, work faster and better. I used to just spot treat, but I've been using this every night all over my face and neck and my skin is looking so much more even -- and I've only been using it for two weeks.
Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Eyes & Lashes
This eye serum, which is to be used in addition to an eye cream, lifts and illuminates the eye area in just a few minutes. It is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and ceramides to plump the skin and smooth out lines, while brighteners actually illuminate the skin for a more refreshed appearance. The serum also makes for an incredible lash conditioner, so brittle lashes are left softer and fortified over time.
Kate Somerville Dilo Oil Restorative Treatment
Skin oils are all the rage, but I am picky. I want an oil that is really going to do something different to my skin, more than just hydrate. This hydrates skin plus so much more. This oil that is derived from the precious Dilo Nut from Fiji is rich in natural essential lipids that work with the skin's own lipid layer to make it stronger. The fast-absorbing oil also firms skin, evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Perricone MD Blue Plasma Orbital
Dr. Perricone uses the power of Blue Plasma technology to introduce a safe and effective way to exfoliate the eye area in this gentle, daily peel. This cooling gel smoothes and de-puffs the delicate eye area while also delivery hydrating, anti-aging and brightening benefits. It uses ingredients that "peel" away dead skin cells as it rebalances hydration. As soon as I apply the gel, my eye area is tightened, toned and totally smooth.
ChapStick Hydration Lock
The famous lip balm just got better with this new advanced formula. It contains antioxidant CoQ10 and hyaluronic filling spheres so lips are plumped and smoothed within seconds of applying. Hydration is locked in for 8 hours. I use this every night before bed and my lips simply look and feel better. The yummy vanilla creme is a plus.
