Fall Layers: Blanket Your Skin Against Winter's Chill


Layering season is here and time to revisit your seasonal skin care strategy. While a certain amount of layering is appropriate year round, it definitely becomes more important when temperatures drop, the cold winds blow, and even oily skins can start to feel dry. This is the time of year when in addition to sun protection, we need to protect our skin against dryness and dehydration, which can cause skin imbalance and trigger irritation. Layering your skin care products properly will keep your beautiful skin nourished and protected during the chilly winter months.


1. The first step is cleansing. Start with a clean slate.

  • Moor Lavender Cleanser: For dry, sensitive, or mature skin.

  • AHA/BHA Cleanser: A gentle exfoliating cleanser with alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Excellent to prep the skin for home treatments and for oily/combination/problem skin conditions. Use for double cleansing along with a lotion or creamy cleanser.

  • Green Tea Cleanser: A favorite for sensitive skin, this lotion based cleanser gently cleanses without irritation.

  • Rosehip Seed Cleanser: Our choice for blemish prone and problem skin conditions. Gently cleans without stripping and helps heal irritation.


2. Layer: Toner Balance skin pH and prepare it for subsequent products.

During colder months try transitioning to a milder toner formula that will still address your skin’s needs.

  • Aloe Rose Toner: For dry, dehydrated, or mature skin.

  • Aloe Salicylic Toner: Problem or blemish prone skin will benefit from this toner, which is gently buffered and contains hyaluronic acid.

  • Hydrating Marine Toner: With antioxidant rich marine brown algae, this gentle toner is great for all skin types.

  • Aloe Lavender Toner: Gentle essence of healing lavender is perfect for all skin types.


3. Layer: Serum

Serums are the cornerstone of your skin care regime. Their concentrated formulas penetrate into the skin to deliver active ingredients.

  • Hydro Collagen Serum: A lightweight, low molecular weight hydrolyzed collagen that works wonders for boosting moisture on combination, dry, and sensitive skin types.

  • Marine Silk Serum: This classic emulsion contains ingredients that work to draw moisture to skin to plump fine lines. Gentle and fast absorbing.

  • Vitamin C Serum: Skin feeling the cold weather blues? All skin types can benefit from the complexion-boosting properties of Vitamin C.

  • Rosehip Seed Oil: Healing, regenerating, hydrating, anti-inflammatory – is there anything rosehip seed oil isn’t good for?

4. Layer: Eyes

The skin around the eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. This leaves it more vulnerable to dryness, lines, and wrinkles.

  • Collagen Eye Crème: For deep hydration, it contains shea butter.

  • Advanced Peptide Eye Gel: A customer favorite for good reason. It sinks right in, provides skin soothing hydration, eases puffiness and protects delicate eye area skin from moisture loss. Peptides work to boost collagen production.

  • Eye Contour Gel Roll On: Keep one with you to hydrate and soothe any time of day. Contains


5. Layer: Moisturizer

  • Super Emollient Crème or Advanced Moisture Crème: For dry skin types in need of intensive moisture, this ultra-rich, nourishing cream works like a charm to soften and protect from wind and dry air.

  • Marine Hydration Crème – This go-to formula keeps combination and dry skin comfortable and moisturized without weighing it down.

  • Herbal Complex Creme – Keep blemish prone or combination skin hydrated without encouraging irritation. Keeps skin soft, contains antibacterial clove and Propolis to help heal.

  • Vitamin A & Vitamin C Cremes: Formulated with plant based highly stable Vitamin C and retinol (Vitamin A) to target fine lines and wrinkles, while Vitamin C brightens and protects against free radical damage.


6. Last but not least: SPF. Always. Protect, protect, protect.
