With NYFW in full swing, fall is officially here for fashionistas and beauty gurus alike. But, before we can jump into cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes, we have to undo all the damage summer may have left on our delicate skin. Harsh sun rays and dry heat feel good at the time but can prematurely bring on wrinkles, lines and age spots. Thankfully, we have combative serums in our beauty roster ready to keep us fresh-faced into fall.
Ideal for all skin tones, Murad’s Lightening Serum is the ultimate evener when it comes to uneven pigment issues. We’re talking about dark spots the sun can leave behind after a few hours too many on the beach. It also combats other environmental factors such as smog and pollution which infiltrate our skin on a daily basis.
Another skin tone corrector we can’t get enough of is Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. There’s a reason this product has a cult following in the beauty world – it works. Only a few drops per night spread across a clean face makes for visible results. Activated vitamin C, white birch extract and peony extract make for a potently effective combo for your age and dark spots.
It’s never too early to start with anti-wrinkle serums. Even gals in your twenties who may think now is much too early to start worrying about lines and crow’s feet should know that the process of wrinkles starts young. So, get a headstart on them with Vichy’s Liftactiv Serum. Their best-selling anti-wrinkle serum uses fragmented hyaluronic acid to help cells regenerate even faster. Firmness, here we come.
A more affordable anti-wrinkle serum is available with Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum. WIth the same active ingredient as Vichy’s Liftactiv (hyaluronic acid) plus Retinol SA and glucose complex, this smooth serum will ward off crow’s feet for you.
For an overall serum to help boost your skin’s luminosity, tone and firmness, we adore Biotherm’s Face Blue Serum. Using the ocean’s activated ingredients such as algae and plankton, this serum will make your skin feeling softer than ever. What the sun did during the summer, the ocean can undo during the fall.
