Au Naturel: How to Look Fresh-Faced for Fall


One of the biggest trends on the fall 2013 runways wasn’t a bold lip look or a dramatic eye. In fact, clean, fresh skin was a constant among the luxurious fabrics and rich tones, putting good skin care at the top of our beauty wish lists. With the shift in seasons, here’s three ways to ensure you skin stays in tiptop shape.

Cleanser – Start by swapping your regular cleanser for one with a richer, creamier formula like CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. The suds gently remove dirt, makeup, and excess oil without stripping the skin’s protective barrier, maintaining its natural moisture balance.

Moisturizer – The richer formulas should follow through to your moisturizer too. In lieu of lotions, thicken things up with a cream that will better retain moisture for hours. Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Day Cream SPF 15 will keep you safe from UV rays all year round, and its Protect & Perfect Night Cream boosts hydration while you snooze.

CC Cream – A CC cream tackles a slew of skin gripes all at once by hydrating, illuminating, evening tone, protecting, and softening lines. Yes to Grapefruit boasts a formula with an SPF 18 sunscreen for added protection from the rays, with ingredients to help erase dark spots for a more radiant look—all while allowing your natural beauty to shine through. Talk about fresh!
