What better time to “spring-clean” your skin than … at the start of spring?!
And with at-home skin care products and “treatments” improving every day, you really owe it to yourself to take a look at how easy it is both to prevent signs of aging and improve your skin.
To help, we’ve rounded up the latest hydrating, plumping, peeling and smoothing products to create a new, younger-looking you!
It’s all here in the latest edition of our weekly fashion and beauty update.
Want to go all-out with an ultra-hydrating skin care regimen? Chanel has just introduced their Systeme Hydratation La Crème Nourishing Cleansing Gel plus two moisture-balancing treatments to work with it: Hydramax + Serum and Hydramax Moisture Boost Cream.
To fight age spots and wrinkles, Estee Lauder has just introduced Perfectionist [CP+] with Poly-Collagen Peptides Correcting Serum for Lines/Wrinkles/Age Spots. Or go for StriVectin-SD, a best-selling, American-made anti-stretch mark cream frequently used to fight wrinkles as well. This product has become the number one anti-age treatment in beauty-conscious France.
If you travel frequently, you will love the Jet Set Travel Set from holistic healer Dr. Hauschka. This compact set includes a botanically balanced hand cream, a skin toner, a facial toner, a mask and the best-selling “Eye Solace” cream for those on the “glam” go.
If you’d like to work your way up to a peel, try a little daily exfoliation. For dry skin, you may want to try Good Skin Polished Skin Gentle Exfoliator, now available at Kohl’s stores nationwide.
If your skin is reddish, sallow or marked with veins or imperfections, you might want to consider a color-tinted primer. They are designed to counterbalance ruddiness, sallow tones and the like, and are applied under foundation. We love Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer from Smashbox.
