Whether you spent your summer months lounging in the sun, swimming in the pool, or sweating in the gym, the sun and chlorine from the summer did some damage to your skin. This is the perfect time of year to revive your skin. Here are the products we recommend for a fall fix!
Cleansers are important, but you want one that won’t strip your skin of moisture and will dissolve dirt, grime, and makeup gently. Try Elemis’s Soothing Chamomile Cleanser to de-stress and calm even the most sensitive of skin types. It balances and refreshes to deeply cleanse skin, effectively removing the build-up of daily pollutants to reveal a radiant complexion.
Your makeup can double as a moisturizer. We recommend DermaQuest’s Perfecting Primer that smoothes away pores and imperfections while extending your makeup wear. Plus this primer plumps up skin with moisture and provides a protective veil of antioxidants.
That summer sun has undoubtedly given you chapped lips. Cure that with a bold shade of lipstick that provides the hydration you need. PurMoist Lipstick by jane iredale is infused with vitamins and antioxidants designed to quench, comfort, and protect your pout.
Repairing facial moisturizer
EltaMD AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer works on a cellular level to increase the skin’s moisture absorption and retention by stimulating aquaporins, proteins embedded in the skin cell membranes that regulate the flow of water. This lightweight, oil-free daily moisturizer will stop the damage right in its tracks.
Hydrating face mask
There’s really nothing better this time of year than a PSL. So why not integrate that into your skin care? Eminence Organics Pumpkin Latte Hydration Masque comforts your skin with a dreamy puree of fresh pumpkin and pumpkin seeds that restore dry skin and promote a natural moisture balance.
Buff away old, dull skin cells and make way for brighter ones with a gentle exfoliator. Try Dermalogica’s Gentle Cream Exfoliant—recommended by O Magazine for an at-home facial that gives spa results—since it’s a non-abrasive exfoliating mask that smoothes the skin. It helps stimulate cell renewal too and leaves your skin bright and fresh.
