You don’t have to travel to France for the best skin care. This fall, the best of the french brands bring us the fruits of all their latest research in anti-aging products.
Youthful skin is firm and toned, while aging skin shows a loss of tensin, a protein that aids in the production of collagen and elastin. From CHANEL comes Ultra Correction Lift, created to give skin the lift it needs. The key ingredient, Elemi PFA, which comes from the Manila Elemi tree and is used in traditional Chinese medicine to heal skin. Chanel labs have extracted the most powerful of the ingredients for use in this new collection of skin care. The products are luxurious and consist of Sculpting Firming Concentrate Serum, Lifting Firming Day Cream SPF15, Lifting Firming Day Fluid SPF15, and Lifting Firming Night Cream.

Once the dog days of summer are over, and the temps are not so sweltering, I get a little more energized and spend more time outdoors. (I’m no beach bunny!) Fortunately, the scientists at Clarins have been hard at work formulating a new day cream to address environmental stresses for active women on the go. Their new Multi-Active Day Cream combats signs of aging with innovative ingredients – Ambiaty extract which revitalizes the “spring” in your skin, and Hesperidin, a powerful and natural antioxidant – derived from orange peels – that’s time released to give you antioxidant protection throughout your busy day. Four formulations are available to choose from – dry skin, normal/combination skin, all skin types, and a lotion with SPF15.

There’s even a lifting formula that’ll keep your eye makeup looking its best throughout the day. These new formulations have active botanical ingredients, and contain no fragrances, parabens, or synthetic coloring.
