Fall Into Gorgeous - With Seasonal Skin Tips

A peel is not a peel is not a peel. The more sun damage, discoloration you have, the deeper the peel or the more peels you need. Peels work by removing damaged outer layers of skin allowing a fresh, new layer of skin cells to naturally emerge. This results in stimulating a renewal process that improves texture and fine lines and makes skin look, feel, and even act younger.
Essentially a type of mild to deep exfoliation, the newest chemical peels feature dual cosmetic and medical benefits. Cosmetically, skin renewal by peeling improves pore size, mild pigmentation, texture, and fine lines. Medically, a peel can improve acne and lighten sunspots. Peels have the added benefit of jumpstarting a topical regimen by allowing age-reversing serums to penetrate the skin more rapidly.
Peels offer numerous benefits depending on your skin type and concern. The classic lunchtime peeling agents, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)-glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids-beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and salicylic acid - are milder and induce a faster sloughing of the cells in the epidermis. You can pop into your dermatologist, get peeled, and go back to the office in an hour with a rosy glow. If you're too overscheduled for a visit to a professional, try the ZO® Medical InvisipeelTM (zoskinhealth.com), a resurfacing solution that is based on powerful enzymes and can be used a few times a week in the privacy of your own home.
And don't reserve peels and microdermabrasion for faces only; they can be done on any area, including hands, chest, and backs of arms and legs - even for the feet. One of the best selling skin treatments around is the Silkpeel® Dermalinfusion Body System (envymedical.com) that has become a signature offering at high-end medical spas and doctors' offices. This breakthrough patented technology infuses your skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and the skin brightening peptide Lumixyl®. This body beautifier can help to reduce the little red bumps from keratosis pilaris, smooth away rough patches on elbows, knees and heels, even skin tone and hydrate for luminous legs, buffed arms and décolleté.
DOUBLE DUTY BEAUTY
Short for blemish balm or beauty balm, multitasking BB creams have become a mainstay of every smart girl's makeup bag with claims to conceal, treat acne, protect from the sun, hydrate, moisturize, minimize lines, and more. So hot is this craze that $37M dollars of them were sold in US prestige retailers, according to NPD Group.
CC creams are color-correcting creations that conceal discolorations, smooth pores, and protect, among other benefits. The key difference is that BB creams usually provide more coverage and treat acne-prone skin while CC creams are about evening out the complexion with moderate coverage and anti-aging benefits. Special BB creams have been known to target just the eyes or even the hair.
Among the true trendsetters in this category, hailing from Korea, Dr Jart+ (us.drjart.com) features five cool variations of BB and CC creams with something for every skin type. These unique formulations do it all; brightening, protecting with SPF, hydrating, controlling breakouts, covering up flaws, plus they double as the perfect primers for under foundation.
The hot new Marc Jacobs Beauty collection finally had its official debut at Sephora (Sephora.com) and every girl wants to get her gel manicured nails into it. The shiny black packaging and edgy sleek design with modern shades and cool names like Lust for Laquer lip vinyl and Style Eye-Con shadow palettes are sure to satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.
