Not only is fall a great time to wind down, it’s also a great time to recharge. In saying goodbye to warm weather we’re looking to our skin-care products to help keep our skin healthy and radiant as the air gets cooler and dryer. Here are some of our favourite fall skin savers for the season. —Vicki Duong
clear start. Your skin can start to look and feel duller as temps drop and in need of a serious pick-me up when it comes to brightening. We’ve been spritzing the Micro Pore Mist ($28) from Clear Start on ours. Enriched with niacinamide and witch hazel, this refreshing mist helps diminish the look of pores and post-breakout marks while tightening. The mist also has a cucumber extract for a cooling sensation and spa-like scent.
neostrata. This year has taken a toll on all of us, and if you’re prone to dark under-eye circles you may find yourself feeling and looking more tired than usual. While the Neostrata Comprehensive Retinol Eye Cream ($54) can’t promise a good night’s rest, it can help you look like you caught enough zzzs. Formulated with pure retinol, it fights the appearance of wrinkles and provides an overall firmer appearance to your under-eyes!
elizabeth arden. For a literal dose of hydration, we’ve been loving the new Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules ($110) from Elizabeth Arden. Delivered in capsule form, these babies allow you to applying the product comfortably, knowing that you’re not under or overusing it, while delivering a potent and effective amount. Not only does it plump and hydrate your skin, the capsule is biodegradable and made entirely of vegetable and mineral-based materials.
sulwhasoo. For the ultimate “treat yourself” indulgence try the world’s first-ever cream-textured sheet mask from Sulwhasoo. The Concentrated Ginseng Renewing mask ($158 for five) is jam-packed with ginseng, famed for its antioxidant properties and ability to alleviate the look of fatigue and boost circulation.
passion & beyond. Updating your skin care isn’t exclusive to just your face; we also like to update our body care routine in preparation for colder weather. The Passion & Beyond Body Serum in Oil ($51) is perfect for pampering. With a combo of oil and serum, it provides a deeply hydrating effect that also helps soothe wounds and leaves a subtle glow
