I know, I know, no one wants summer to end, but as autumn arrives, you can welcome the opportunity to repair your skin from the toll the sun, salt and heat take, and keep your summer glow. You just need the right products. Here are three of my favorites.
Glycolic Acid Pads: I love Cane + Austin’s 30% Miracle PAD+. If you’ve been using pads with 10% or 20% glycolic acid, it’s time to retire them! The 30% Miracle PAD+ product exfoliates, increases cellular turnover, keeps the skin smooth and clear, and allows for flawless make-up application. It is extremely effective after just a few applications.
Insider Tip: Use the 30% Miracle PAD+ once a day at night, let the acid fully dry on your skin, and follow with your nighttime oil or cream. You can use the Pads on your hands to remove dryness and sun spots.
Primer: Every woman, no matter what her skin type, needs a good primer to make her foundation last all day. I am a fan of the Cane + Austin mattifying primer. It smooths out fine lines and diminishes creases under your eyes while addressing uneven skintone, dryness and redness.
Insider Tip: This primer can be used alone for ultimate sun coverage and acts as a light tint to tone down redness.
Sunscreen: This truly is the best! Packed with sun protection, the Cane + Austin SPF 50 is extremely light and leaves the skin feeling protected without that icky, sticky, heavy feeling. It is perfect under primer and foundation, or alone. It has green tea and coenzyme Q10 to help repair environmental damage and prevent early signs of aging.
Insider Tip: Since this sunscreen is so light, I like to tilt my head back and dab a few dots on my face directly from the bottle. Don’t forget your neck and hands.
