Summer weather can take a toll on your skin, and as we move into Fall it can be time to reinvigorate and refresh for when the colder season arrives. How to maintain a healthy glow at all times? We bring you the latest skincare tips and tricks to help you as the seasons change.
It’s no secret, fruits have the enormous antioxidant power of rejuvenation and are particularly advantageous for skin and hair. Fall 2017 season marks the big comeback of Vitamin C-enhanced skincare and makeup. The powerhouse ingredient is known for its proven antioxidant properties that make skin look firmer, more radiant and glowing by dramatically brightening and evening complexion. Blueberries are also a great source of antioxidants and have power to shield the skin from free radicals, by empowering it against external damage.

A good night’s sleep
Getting a good night’s sleep is key to a healthy look and to a radiant glow. While we sleep, our cells work hard to help repair the external damage that was done to our skin during the day. Environmental aggression, like stress, pollution, sun rays, you name it – it all counts when it comes to skin. That is why it is very important to wash your face before going to bed and to nourish the skin and hair at night for regeneration.
