Now that fall has arrived and the summer and many of its outdoor activities are behind us, this is the time of year when you should really focus on repairing and caring for your skin.
Here are my top six products to get your skin gorgeous this fall:
TRIPLE BERRY SMOOTHING PEEL – Without a doubt, this is the best exfoliating skin peel on the market and it will give you professional results at home. If money is tight and you can’t get chemical peels from a skin care professional, this is definitely the way to go. It helps to lift skin discoloration (such as sun spots and acne scars), remove dull, tired, dry skin and encourage fresher, plumper cells to form. This will give your skin a flawless finish! If you haven’t tried this one yet, you don’t want to miss out on the results you’ll get. It’s also a favorite of celebrities and was called “A masterful scrub of superhero strength” by The New York Times Style Magazine. For more information about Triple Berry Smoothing Peel, click here…
BHA CLARIFYING SERUM – Our newest serum uses a powerful blend of lactic, glycolic and salicylic acid for clearing clogged pores, preventing blemishes, lifting discoloration from acne scars and revealing smoother, more even-toned skin. If you have breakouts, acne scars but also have sensitive skin, this serum is for you. For more information about BHA Clarifying Serum, click here.
MINT BUFFING BEADS – Since exfoliation is essential for sun damage repair and for creating silky, smooth skin, a well-formulated facial scrub is a must this fall. Use it 2-3 times a week in the shower or to make the Triple Berry Smoothing Peel work even better. For damaged skin, use the Mint Buffing Beads after rinsing off the peel. Your skin will love it.

BIO CALM REPAIR MASQUE – After using the Triple Berry Smoothing Peel or doing any kind of at-home exfoliating treatment, it’s essential to ensure that the new skin cells that have been revealed are nourished and kept hydrated. A thin coat of this deeply hydrating mask is sure to plump up the skin cells, leaving your skin beautifully soft, healthy and glowing.
AGE DEFENSE MOISTURIZER SPF 30 – Don’t think that you’re not getting skin-damaging UV rays just because the weather is cooler. I’ve always said that sunscreen should really be called “daylight screen” since it’s not just direct exposure to the sun that is truly the problem. It’s the daylight coming through windows at home, work or in a car that really causes premature wrinkles. Research indicates that 78% of most premature aging comes from this type of incidental exposure. Our newest sunblock is great for fall because it’s very hydrating, yet still lightweight. Also, it’s all-mineral and chemical-free making it ideal for super sensitive skin. While our Daily Protection SPF 30 is one of our best-sellers, many find they need something more hydrating for the cooler months so this one is perfect. Wear it as your daily moisturizer in the fall and all year round. For more information about Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30, click here.
ALOE CLEANSING MILK – As much as gel and foaming cleansers are wonderful, some skin types can find them to be a bit drying once the temperatures cool down and less oil is being produced. A good rule of thumb is to use a non-drying, sulfate-free gel cleanser (like Gentle Gel Cleanser, Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel or Purifying Face Wash) in the morning and switch to a lightweight, lotion-based cleanser, like Aloe Cleansing Milk, at night. A gel offers a deep pore cleansing, while cleansing lotions are a bit milder and do a more effective job at dissolving makeup off the skin and from within the pores.
