Grapefruit || My 6 Skincare Essentials for Fall

While the excitement of Fall is in the air, I also have noticed the transitional weather can take a toll on my skin.  Our humid summers in NYC are actually good for the skin, allowing moisture to be retained.  This time of year though, I tend to see a few problems as temperatures fluctuate, and the need for a stronger regimen is apparent.  After trying out dozens of Mario Badescu products, I'm excited to share my 6 essentials for Fall:

1. A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap - Peachy grapefruit... not only a beautiful color, but also a wonder fruit of nutrition for our bodies, and skin.  This body wash has both grapefruit & flower extract for rejuvenation, and is great for all skin types.

2. Enzyme Cleansing Gel - Lathering on this buttery soft cleanser has become an obsession!  My face feels just as soft after cleansing, as well as brightened & exfoliated all at once.  It's best for combination or oily skin, so I would highly recommend if you have the same skin type as me.

3. Hyaluronic Eye Cream - I tend to feel a little more dryness in Fall, and this eye cream is the most lightweight and soothing I've ever tried.  I use this in the morning under makeup and at night before bed and always feel refreshed.  It is so inexpensive compared to other eye creams and it lasts forever!

4. Seaweed Night Cream - This is my holy grail night cream.  Previous collagen-plumping creams were always too heavy and sticky for the oily areas of my face, but this one leaves me only smooth & radiant!  I can't live without it.

5. Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 - Yes, you still need SPF in the Fall!  Even though the sun seems less intense and further away, I am careful to coat my skin in protection every single day.  I use this under my makeup each morning, and I love it.  I even often skip primer as this is never greasy or shiny, which works extra well for my vintage inspired matte-look preference.  I've learned that my skin needs to be well-moisturized before patting away with my powders and puffs!

6. Healing & Soothing Mask - This mask is for all skin types, and delivers gentle hydration while absorbing any excess oil.  I have noticed a gentle glow with each use, and am really loving for this season!  I'm hoping to go more in depth with Mario Badescu masks soon!
