Seasonal Skincare Swap

Real talk: we’re freaking out about fall. Although summer heat isn’t ideal for a full face of makeup, cooler weather can present a slew of skin concerns—especially for those who struggle with acne. For an easy, blemish-free transition, you’ll need to change up your skincare routine the same way you swap out your wardrobe. Here’s how:

Correct your cleanser: In the summer, we like reaching for heavy-duty cleansers that ensure salt & sand stay on the beach and out of our pores. In the fall, you’ll want to switch to something gentler like this PCA Skin Creamy Cleanser . Packed with beneficial oils like rosehip (a Kate Middleton favorite) and omega-6 essential fatty acids, this formula will remove dirt without stripping skin.

Peel away: Forget diamonds—chemical peels are your new best friend. While you should be careful not to over-exfoliate during colder months, you should add this Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel  to your lineup once a week. This gel uses a combination of pineapple & pomegranate enzymes that lifts away dry, dead skin to prevent clogged pores. Just be careful not to scrub too hard!

Tone and balance: After months of sun exposure, this Obagi Nu-Derm Toner  will help restore your skin’s natural pH level. Unlike most toners, this product features a natural astringent instead of alcohol, which can overdry skin. Aloe and calendula soothe & smooth skin as witch hazel tightens pores without over-drying your complexion.

Add a serum: Most people try to avoid extra oil in the summer, but it’s about to make a comeback. To build up your skin’s natural defense against the elements, we suggest using bareMinerals Eternalixir Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum. The calcium-rich concoction enhances your moisture barrier and fights signs of aging with nourishing botanical oils. Be sure to take this product down your neck, as well.

Thicken your moisturizer: Though it’s hotly contested, moisturizers should follow after serums! At night, show your skin some love with a generous coat of this  Peter Thomas Roth Camu Power CX30 Brightening Moisturizer . This product is loaded with a superfruit called the Camu Camu berry, which packs 30 times more vitamin C than your average orange. This is crucial during sun-deficient seasons to maintain collagen production and iron absorption.

Throw on a mask: If you’re in need of emergency hydration, it’s time for the GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment
. Having dry skin can be itchy and uncomfortable, so this mask was formulated to provide instant relief. Leave on for 10-20 minutes before going out, keep it on overnight, or slick on during a long flight to arrive glowy & soft!

Saying goodbye to summer is already hard enough—we hope this guide helps you winterize your routine with ease!

The Beautiful Royal Wedding

CC by whitneyinchicago

Today is the day that millions of people and all the media have been waiting for. People all over the nation (US) have been awake since the wee hours of the morning to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles, 28, and Kate Middleton, 29. Even if you’re not actively searching for updates, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid hearing about the Royal Wedding today, unless you don’t go online, don’t turn on the TV or radio and pretty much just cut yourself off from all civilization.

With famous style icon guests including Victoria and David Beckham, this wedding was a huge event for the fashion world – and Kate did not disappoint. Kate Middleton looked like a classic beauty wearing a dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, a Cartier tiara borrowed from the Queen and a half-up, half-down hairdo with soft, loose curls.

Prince William was named His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus and Kate was named Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus.
