The New Fall Skin Innovators to Try Now
Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Serum
A long summer basking in the sun's rays doesn't come without a dreaded sun spot or two, but the potent antioxidants in Estee Lauder's Enlighten serum ($92; esteelauder.com) can stop all uneven tones before they have time to surface by tapping into your complexion's natural clock to repair existing damage while you sleep. During the day, the antioxidants go into overdrive by shielding your skin from spot-causing elements.
Dior Capture Totale One Essential Detox Serum
Ever notice how radiant your complexion appears after a juice cleanse? Dior's Capture Totale Detox Serum ($100; sephora.com) can mimic the same effect, minus the restrictions on your calorie intake. The mix of proteins and the infusion of red hibiscus extract penetrate deep into your skin to increase cell production and push out toxins to leave your complexion fresh and glowing.
Philosophy No Reason to Hide Serum
Philosophy's wonder serum ($68; philosophy.com), which is rich in vitamin C, marine botanicals, salicylic acid, and niacinamide, targets a variety of common skin issues like age spots, redness, acne marks, and many more, making it a one-size-fits-all fix suitable for all skin types. After just four weeks of daily use, redness, dark spots, and pore size are instantly reduced, with full results expected after 12 weeks.
Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum
Dark circles are no match for the Kiehl's Multi-Corrective Serum ($48; kiehls.com), which can transform the entire area in just one week. The velvety formula almost melts into your skin and does double-duty to illuminate your under-eyes from the inside out, while filling in crow's feet and keeping the skin surrounding the area taut.
Kate Somerville DermalQuench Clear
Next to an oxygen facial from Kate Somerville herself, the DermalQuench Clear ($58; katesomerville.com) proves to be the next best thing for problematic skin types. The salicylic acid capsules, which hold technology almost as smart as that in your iPhone 6, actually target blemish-prone areas to kill acne-causing bacteria before it has time to surface, while pore size and oil production is reduced overall.
Rodial Glamtox Neck Mask
Your neck isn't exempt from signs of aging, and luckily, Rodial's pre-soaked masks ($56 for 8 sachets; rodial.com) are exactly what you need to keep that area in check. Apply the sheet for 20 minutes and allow the mix of amino acids to lift, tighten, and restore elasticity all over.
Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil
Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? As long as the new moniker won't alter the anti-aging properties in Sisley's Black Rose Face Oil ($235; sisley-paris.com), then we'll call it just about anything. The formula mixes black rose extract with a cocktail of nourishing oils-plum, magnolia, and geranium to name a few-to help strengthen your skin's protective barrier, while combating free radicals, and smoothing over fine lines.
Bliss Multi-Face-Eted Anti-Aging Clay Mask
Perfect for skin walking the line between the worlds of anti-aging and anti-acne, the blend of carbon, glycolic acid, and quartz in Bliss' clay mask ($50; blissworld.com) act as a vacuum cleaner for clogged pores, instantly removing all traces of dirt and oil while infusing your complexion with moisturizing jojoba and spot-fading kojic acid.
StriVectin Facial Toner Device
StriVectin's Facial Toner ($200; strivectin.com) may look like the latest Apple device, and after giving it a road-test, we admit: We'd definitely line up at midnight to snatch up another. With painless micro-current electrical impulses, the device stimulates the nerves that control your facial muscles to give them a Soul Cycle-esque workout. By restoring your muscle mass, skin will bounce back to a younger state, complete with plumper cheeks, a lifted eye area, and a lack of fine lines.
Dolce & Gabbana Aurealux Cream
Thanks to an innovative gold-infused complex developed by Dolce amp Gabbana, a few dabs of the Aurealux Cream ($129; saks.com) are all you need to put your best face forward. The lightweight gel is absorbed on contact, allowing the mixture of gold silk, vitamin B3, and olive oil to deliver major hydration to your skin's deepest layers. On the surface, you'll notice an over-all smooth appearance.
SK-II Essential Power Essence
SK-II's Essential Power Essence ($195; sk-ii.com) blends artichoke and ginseng extracts with the brand's trademark Pitera ingredient, which has long been hailed for its ability to completely turn back time. After just two weeks, pores will shrink to their most-miniscule size and wrinkles will be less obvious; plus, your face will feature an all-over tone that you may not have seen in years!
Hum Nutrition Arctic Repair Supplements
Hum's Arctic Repair supplements ($60; sephora.com) are chockfull of the complexion-perfecting blend of vitamin E, vitamin A, and lingonberry seed oil, which work together to fill wrinkles, improve hydration, and tone your skin.
La Mer The Intensive Revitalizing Mask
Got eight minutes? That's all you need to give your skin some serious repair. La Mer's Revitalizing Mask ($160; cremedelamer.com) contains the same healing ingredients as the classic moisturizer, but adds extra elements into the mix like elastic sea kelp, glacial kelp, and lime tea for a truly luxurious experience. Along with the firmer tone, and softer, more youthful texture, your complexion will be protected from age-inducing factors such as lack of sleep, stress, and pollution.
Perricone MD Hyalo Plasma
Layering is the key to keeping warm in fall's brisk weather, and a thin layer of Perricone MD's Hyalo Plasma ($123; qvc.com) under your regular moisturizer can keep your skin from drying out in the dropping temps. By combining three different kinds of hyaluronic acids, sallow areas become more supple and contoured so you get the exact amount of hydration you need, and your complexion takes on a translucent, almost glass-like level of clarity.
Meaningful Beauty Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment
Unless a Photoshop blur tool for real life takes the market anytime soon, we're swearing by Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty Lifting and Filling Treatment ($72; meaningfulbeauty.com in November), which kicks your collagen and elastin production reserves into overdrive to give your complexion (as well as any unsightly wrinkles and sagging skin) an instant pick-me-up.
