Trick AND Treat to Keep Your Skin Glowing
I absolutely love October. In Southern California we finally experience a shift from hot to crisp, and the leaves begin to turn. And of course, the Halloween spirit looms at just about every shopping location you can think of. Instead of the typical candies and costumes, today I wanted to share with you my favorite tricks and treats for keeping your skin glowing as the weather makes this dramatic and much appreciated
Tricks & Treats
Trick 1 - Listen to Your Skin - October has consistently been a month of skin transformation for me. As the weather turns my skin loses it's oiliness of summer and starts to drift more into the dry category. With this change, I reach towards more hydrating moisturizers to stave off any dry or flaky skin.
Treat 1 - Eminence Organics Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer - This is one of the newest additions to Eminence's Age Corrective Collection, and I am absolutely loving it! The ingredients are ultra-moisturizing, and deliver nutrients that help to slow down and reverse the aging process. This is a wonderful daily cream moisturizer that will help you in rejuvenating your skin and reviving a youthful glow.
Trick 2 - Exfoliate - Okay, so I endorse exfoliation year-round. However, as the seasons turn and your skin starts to shift, this becomes even more important. Exfoliation can done both chemically and manually, and it is important to select a product that works best for you. I always recommend speaking with one of my medical estheticians or myself to help with product selection, and exfoliating products are no exception!
Treat 2 - PMD Personal Microderm Device - I have completely fallen head-over-heals with this revolutionary device. If you are looking for a device that replicates the treatment given by professionals, then this product is definitely for you. It works by using the same Aluminum Oxide crystals you find in their professional devices on their patented spinning discs. The hand-held device uses vacuum action to gently pull skin towards the disc for optimum exfoliation. I love how they have a collection of skin care products designed specifically for use with their device, as well as their variety of disks for various skin types!
Trick 3 - SPF - I don't know why, but so many people view the cooler weather and heavier cloud cover as an excuse to ditch their SPF! The overcast clouds can actually amplify harmful UV rays, meaning it is more essential to protect your skin with your SPF of choice. There are many different formulas of SPF, including liquid, powder, cream, mineral makeup, and more!
Treat 3 - Image Skincare MD Reconstructive Moisturizer SPF 50 - This lightweight moisturizer has a built in broad-spectrum, high UVA/UVB sunscreen that provides skin with the ultimate in protection and prevention. Transparent zinc oxide in combination with effective antioxidants as well as plant-derived stem cells prevent free radical damage and delay the aging process of skin cells. It is also paraben free, which is fantastic
Trick 4 - Simple Eyes & Statement Lips - One of my absolute favorite Fall 2014 trends has been the combination of simple eyes and statement lips. I have seen this look on the runways and the streets, and I have come to the conclusion that just about anyone can rock it!
Treat 4 - BLINC Mascara & Youngblood Lipstick - BLINC Mascara has been a long-term favorite of mine! It takes my lashes to a new level of length, and the tubes stay on my lashes until I am ready to remove them. It is simply unlike any other mascara I have tried before. I also adore Youngblood's Lipstick, which comes in an array of color from pretty pinks to rosy reds. It is rumored that Jessica Alba is a fan of Tangelo, a vampy tangerine-orange that is perfect for Fall!
Trick 5 - Confidence - Many people are surprised just how much of a difference a confidence boost can make! From trying new things to embracing yourself, confidence is key.
Treat 5 - Pamper Yourself - So many of my of my clients walk out of my Day Spa feeling refreshed and rejoiced in their skin! Treat yourself to a spa day, be it a facial or massage. This can help kick-start your confidence boost for gorgeous glowing skin this October and Beyond!
