  • First start with Fresh A Peel multi fruit acid peel for hydrated and bright skin. The unique combination of Lactic acid and Multi-Fruit Enzymes provide superior rate of exfoliation while reducing the appearance of fine lines, pores, and skin imperfections (and Lactic Acid also pulls moisture to the surface of the skin which creates a plump complexion). Apply to dry clean skin for 2-5 minutes and then rinse with cool water. The finished result will be even, smooth, bright and fresh-looking skin.
  • Next deliver potent power packed brightening results with our NEW Brightening Elixir, featuring Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) 9%, Ferulic acid 3%, Vitamin B 3%, and Vitamin E 2% (alpha tocopherol) to protect skin against damage caused by free radicals (including UVA/UVB), increases firmness, diminishes the appearance of fine lines, improves skin tone and boosts hydration for a brighter, visibly healthier complexion.
  • Don’t forget your eyes even when in a hurry. Plant Profusion Energetic Eye Cream, packed with a proprietary blend of superior active ingredients improves the appearance of aging skin by rehydrating, de-puffing and smoothing out overall texture – resulting in a rested and bright glow.
  • Don’t forget to hydrate! Add a drop of Fleuressence Native Botanical Oil, a blend of 100% pure active botanicals, fruit extracts and natural oil may help deliver powerful vitamins and nutrients to the skin to boost moisture levels. Rich in powerful Omega fatty acids and Vitamins A, C & E, the botanical actives may help work to diminish the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.  into your foundation of choice and apply to your face.
  • Next highlight the face with RMS Magic Luminizer. Pay attention to the upper cheekbones, inner crease of the eye and the top of the upper lip for that maximum vavavoom glow!
  • Finish the look with a pop of lip color. RMS lip-gloss in Bloom looks beautiful on all complexions and is the perfect holiday shade!

 

Get Glowing!

Summer seems like one long low-maintenance beauty treatment: beachy hair, sun-kissed glow, natural make-up free look, but by the time the weather cools off, our complexion, along with our hair and body can often times feel and look like a dried up prune!

Regardless of your post-Summer beauty routine and overall concerns, we have the treatments (and DON’TS) that will leave your skin feeling hydrated, softer and brighter leading into the Fall months.

DON’T take hot showers: Hot showers can be dehydrating to skin in general, especially after a Summer of being in the sun because the effects can be even worse (i.e. premature aging, stronger definition of fine lines, to name a few). The next time you hop in, turn the water temperature down about 10 to 15 degrees, and don’t take more than two showers a day.

DON’T: Don’t use photo-sensitising ingredients on the skin during the day as even

though Summer is technically over, the sun is still extremely strong for another month or soCertain ingredients in products can react adversely on your skin in sunlight, make you burn more easily and causing lasting sun damage. Products containing retinoids, acids or fruits acids as well as topical steroids or differin creams can enhance sensitivity. Always read the ingredients list

and any warnings on your beauty product labels to ensure you aren’t doing damage without knowing it. Opt to use these products at night only.

DO: Thirst Quenching Treatments: In order to effectively get your skin back in tip-top shape, Vitamin C is your answer. Vitamin C visibly brightens the skin and improves the overall look and tone of the skin. Power-packed vitamins including, Vitamin E, Vitamin B and Ferric Acid also help hydrate, brighten, soothe, and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. Get introduced to Dr. Goldfaden’s newest power punch product to his range, Brightening Elixir, that instantly soothes and brightens your summer skin.

DO: Double up at night. Skin cell regeneration is slightly higher at night making it a crucial step to apply products with active ingredients in the night as your skin is able to absorb the active ingredients in skincare products better since active ingredients are less effective when exposed to sunlight.  In addition, your skin would not have to compete with the other products you apply like makeup or sunscreen to fight the UV rays, pollution and other harmful environmental elements in the day. Layer up a potent packed repairing treatment (powerful nighttime ingredients to look for include: peptides, retinol, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, to name a few) and an ultra-hydrating moisturizer to really pack the hydration punch allowing you to wake up to supple, plump and a hydrated glow.

DO: Exfoliate. Exfoliating your face is key after a summer of sun and sunscreen. The upper layer of skin gets thicker, harder and drier. Removing the surface layers of dead skin, oil build up and grease will give a dewier

look and helps to produce more collagen, allowing skin to look more plump.
