I love fall. It's the time when the city jolts awake after being in the Hamptons all summer. Every night, there seems to be an art opening or party to go to. I can wear the new coat I was eyeing at Barneys, break out all my gloves, and dust off my favorite pair of thigh-high boots.
Yes, fall is the season when the city comes back to life, but it also signals the time to buckle down and get back to work. It's no wonder everyone is walking around looking a tad on the sallow side. For those chained to your desk this season, here are the products to help your skin retain summer's glow even when the clouds are gray.
Keeping your skin moisturized as the seasons change is a no-brainer, but did you know hydrated skin is also crucial for reflecting light evenly, which is responsible for giving you that "glow" we're all after? To combat any dryness, Dr. Jart+'s Ceramidin line is uber-hydrating and perfect for sensitive skin. One of my favorite things about the Liquid product is how refreshing and cool it feels when you apply it.
Of course, the number-one usual suspect for causing sallow skin is under-eye bags. Those dark gray circles have got to go and Clarins is here to help. Its latest concealer not only covers up your bags, it works to de-puff them, too.
Sometimes you need to call in the big guns. For an instant glow and a full-face detox, break out a bottle of the Transformer Mask. This is the bottled cure for a facial hangover.
Zelens Transformer Renewal Mask, $195, available at Space.NK.
