New Brand Spotlight: DDF Skincare

In 1991, renowned New York dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel founded DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) to enable his patients to care for their skin at home. The DDF skin care system is designed with advance protocols targeting one or more of the specific skin concerns. DDF targets root causes with antioxidants to help neutralize surface-free radicals, cleaning formulations to help remove excess sebum, and surface-penetrating hydration to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.

For over 20 years, DDF has brought the inspiration of dermatologic methods to skin care. DDF’s focus is on personalization and matching the latest dermatological technology to the individual’s personal skin needs. In Dr. Sobel’s words, “One size most certainly does not fit all.” This is why they’ve developed DermCode™ Skin Analysis, a dermatologist-inspired tool which helps us tailor a “protocol” of products to your particular skin issues.

By combining DermCode technology with leading-edge, dermatologist-approved ingredients such as turmeric, DDF can decode and understand your skin in greater depth. With this knowledge and understanding, you can take your skin to a whole new level. Just as if, in fact, you had your own personal dermatologist.

At-Home Spa Day

A spa day may seem indulgent to some, but did you know that the benefits of pampering yourself to this relaxing respite from our busy lives goes far beyond the surface?

Spa treatments like hydrotherapy, foot massages and body treatments (like a full body scrub) can help improve blood circulation and regulate blood pressure, not to mention, they feel sublime!  The much-needed mental break from a spa day can also do wonders psychologically, helping to increase feelings of confidence, well-being and boosting self-esteem.

Even if you’re too busy to schedule an appointment at your local spa, you can still reap the benefits of a relaxing spa day (or evening) right in your very own bathroom. Take a look at a few of our favorite spa indulgences and leave those worries at the door! :

Time for a Fall Beauty Revamp!

With the start of a new season comes a great opportunity to freshen up your beauty routine. It’s a great time to try a new skincare product, change up your signature scent for fall, and give your makeup a little shake up with new fall colors.

6. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel

7. Butter London Lippy in Wine Gums

8. LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

First thing we love to focus on is our skincare routine. Start with a fresh fall complexion by making regular exfoliation a part of your regimen. Another important step to keeping your skin beautiful, no matter what your skin type, is moisturizing. For bedtime, opt for a richer night cream with anti-aging ingredients to help combat the stress and damage your skin has gone through during the day.

Now that you have a flawless canvas, it’s time to update your makeup! The best way to freshen up your overall look is with perfect brows. The trend is definitely towards a fuller brow. Fill in sparse or uneven brows using a brow powder for the most natural look.

Transition into fall using darker, more saturated hues like a sheer wine lipgloss or a smoky eye in a deep, rich shade of navy, grey or bronze.

Finish off your fall beauty revamp by swapping out your summer scent to something with warmer base notes like oriental, woodsy or vanilla-based fragrances.

Now you’re ready for a gorgeous season ahead!
