Transitional Skincare – Protecting Your Skin In Between Seasons

The summer is slowly but surely making its downward dissent into oblivion, that oblivion I speak of is the fall. The biggest downfall about the change in the seasons (Apart from less time at the beach) is how different the climate becomes and how this change affects our skin. Far too many ladies have a skin care regime that becomes a ritualistic instinct to do every day, not taking into consideration that skin care products need to change as often as the seasons do. Curvy Magazine teamed up with Mr. Silver Reid, A celebrity skin care specialist and esthetician out of Las Vegas, Nevada to get the inside scoop on what products to use to get your skin ready for fall/winter protection.

The biggest mistake most people make (men and woman alike) is when the fall season comes, the skin care lacks the additional moisturizers needed to make up for the change in the climate. Below are Silver Reid’s picks of the best products to use to get that summer time glow, year round.
