Candace: What are the must haves in skin care for fall?
Jeannine Morris: "With skin care we have to change our regimen a little bit for fall and I'm going to suggest a product called Bio-Oil first because you can use this on your face and body. Most importantly it keeps your skin moisturized and going into fall we need to stay moisturized. It's made with purcellin oil, so it's not greasy at all. It has vitamins and botanical extracts in it that absorb quickly into your skin. It also helps to rid scars and stretchmarks and it helps to even out your skin tone on your face and on your body. Now 47% of women said in a survey that they didn't know they could do anything about existing scars but with Bio-Oil you can help to minimize them over time which I think is amazing and it's crazy that women don't know that. So this product has so many uses besides moisturizing as you see and it's a great bang for your buck because it's only $12 at drugstores, so I highly stress incorporating this into your fall regimen."
Candace: How about when it comes to makeup trends?
JM: "The red lip and the metallic eye. Those are my two favorite ones that are out for fall right now. I saw them backstage at New York Fashion Week and now they're following. Celebs are starting to use them and those are two of the biggest makeup trends that people should start doing for fall. With the red lip you can't go wrong, you just have to be confident enough to wear it; and with the metallic eye you can incorporate metallic colors into your smokey eye look at night or you can just do a little bit of metallic in the inner corner of your eye to pop it out."
Candace: What are your favorite skin care products?
JM: "Now my next favorite product for skin going from summer into fall would be by Physicians Formula. Now this is their 'Dark Spot Corrector & Skin Brightener Formula; it's from their anti aging collection and it claims to make you look six years younger in just four weeks which is a pretty strong claim. I'll tell you why and how it works – you know in the sun when you lay out and you get all those spots on your face? They're called sun spots and some people might get age spots, well, this will pick up all of those spots and then brighten your complexion; so it makes you look super young. A lot younger in just four weeks, so that's really important and we'll put our best face forward this fall. It's just a part of a whole collection that Physicians Formula has out right now. They have like tons of cleansers, moisturizers and other treatment products for different skin types; everything can be found at Walmart for under $20, so again it's very affordable stuff."
Candace: Do you have any additional tips or information you'd like to share?
JM: "You know we're talking about makeup and skin care but if all of that is put together and your smile isn't; I think it kind of throws off the whole scheme, so I would suggest to make sure you have a bright white smile going into fall. Put your best face forward, so I'm going to recommend the Crest 3D White collection. They have a vivid toothpaste that has a dual-action silica system and now this removes 80% of surface stains from your teeth in just two weeks and that's just by brushing them. But they also have their white strips- their 'Professional Effects' white strips. They use the same ingredients that dentist offices use; so at the dentist office if you go to get a professional whitening, you know you're going to get charged a couple hundred dollars, but if you do it at home this kit costs $50 and you see results in as little as three days. So I think that's another thing that people can do for fall, is an easy pick me up and it's affordable."
