Fall Skincare Recommendations

As the seasons change, it’s important to be mindful of how the change of weather can affect your skin. With fall comes drier, colder air and we’d hate for you to lose that summer glow! With the help of our in-house skincare experts, we’ve put together our list of favourite products to keep your skin comfortable and radiant all year round.

Pro-Derm Gentle Cleanser

Many cleansers are too harsh and strip the skin. While this is important to be mindful of year round, it’s especially important to be careful around your skin’s moisture barrier when the weather gets colder. The Pro-Derm Gentle Cleanser is formulated with the optimal acid pH (pH 4.5) to get rid of all of the things you don’t want on your skin, like dirt and grease, but leave all of the good stuff you do want, like your skin’s natural moisture.

Pro-Derm Regenerating Cream

Moving into the fall and winter is the optimal time to switch from lighter formulas to heavier creams. We love this cream since not only is it perfect for it’s anti-aging properties, it also is extremely healing to any skin damage. Some of the star ingredients in this dream cream are Matrixyl – a extremely long-lasting peptide known for its amazing anti-aging properties, and Vitamin A – which helps encourage your cells to behave in a younger, healthier way.

SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50

The number one skincare item for flawless skin, as told by any professional, is wearing a daily sunscreen. Even in our rainy Victoria weather or if you’re staying largely indoors, it’s important to wear an SPF every single day. The SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 is Nurse Rachel’s #1 recommendation.  This Zinc Oxide formulation is perfect for all skin types, and won’t cause the irritation a chemical sunscreen would.

ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish

Exfoliating to get rid of dead, dull skin is an important step in any skincare routine. The ZO Exfoliating Polish uses ultra-fine magnesium crystals to exfoliate and increase cell turnover for a clear and even complexion. This dreamy product replenishes hydration and won’t create microtears in your skin, which is a common problem with physical exfoliants.
