Summer is officially over and done with—which means it’s time to reboot your skin care routine to accommodate the cooler climate and undo the damaging effects of soaking up too much sun. If you’re a little unsure how to get started on your fall regimen, let this month’s BeautyFIX serve as your little cheat sheet. Our October box not only features products designed to rejuvenate and restore your skin and hair to pre-summer condition, it also offers a few extra trimmings to get your skin ready for the holidays (read: soiree season!). Watch the video below to sneak a peek at October BeautyFIX—or keep scrolling to get the full details on why we love every single product in it!
We recommend: Avène Thermal Spring Water
Why we love it: Summer can leave your skin red and easily irritated. This mineral-rich water mist cools, refreshes and calms skin in an instant. What’s more, you can use it on your face or body, as a toner or a makeup remover, in the office or the gym—you get the point.
We recommend: 100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
Why we love it: Fall TV shows are back, and binge-watching them isn’t doing our skin any favors. Thank goodness for coffee! Not only does drinking it get us through our workday without a hitch, applying it on our eye area in the form of an eye cream also touts many benefits. 100% Pure’s eye cream, for one, diminishes puffiness and dark circles with its anti-inflammatory properties. It also thoroughly hydrates your skin to keep fine lines and crow’s-feet at bay. And did we mention it’s natural, vegan and paraben-free?
We recommend: Roloxin Lift Revitalizing Facial Treatment
In this day and age, when everything can be had as fast as your fingers can type, why shouldn’t we expect our skin care products to deliver results just as fast? Enter Roloxin Lift, a wrinkle-smoothing cream mask that will give you visible—no, dramatic—results in mere minutes. How? It creates a lattice-like barrier over your skin, instantly tightening, brightening and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and enlarged pores for up to 24 hours, so you can spend less time preparing for your day and more time living it.
We recommend: AHAVA Dead Sea Water Mineral Hand Cream
In case you need some reminding: Cooler climate calls for heavier, thicker moisturizers—and we found just the right formula for you. This hand cream is rich enough for even the driest skin, but unlike other hand creams, this doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky film. The best part? It also infuses your skin with a unique blend of nutrients from the Dead Sea.
We recommend: Follimedica Hair Regrowth Treatment for Women
There are many causes of hair loss, but according to Swedish researchers, seasonal hair loss is also a thing. While this process is perfectly normal amongst all mammals, including humans, and is hardly a cause for concern, some women may find themselves losing more hair than what one would normally expect. If you think your hair isn’t regrowing as fast as it should be, an intervention may be in order. This hair treatment features 2% minoxidil, an FDA-approved ingredient that stimulates your scalp and re-activates your hair follicles for a fuller, more youthful-looking head of hair.
We recommend: CARGO Eyeshadow—Moreton Bay
Fall makeup is meant to be rich, audacious and unexpected. This highly pigmented eye shadow achieves all that with its deep matte plum shade. Plus, its crease-resistant, silky texture applies smoothly and won’t wear off until you wash your face.
We recommend: Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair
With the holiday season closing in, it’s never too early to start prepping your skin for the soiree season ahead. This firming face cream features proven ingredients—peptides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants—to repair and prevent future damage. Its advanced copper technology ensures your skin drinks it up like it’s a bottle of bub.
We recommend: Replenix Neckletage
If the recent Emmys and New York Fashion Week were any indication, deep V-neck and off-the-shoulder necklines seem to be the prevailing theme in the sartorial department for the next few months. Unfortunately, our décolletage area rarely gets the same tender loving care we give our face, and the result of that neglect could be much worse considering the skin here is thinner and has fewer oil glands. Correct this habit with this rich, skin-smoothing cream. It features peptides, ceramides, niacinamide, antioxidants and apple stem cells to hydrate, repair and restore its youthful look.
