Your Fall Skincare Arsenal

I can’t believe it is almost November! Though the weather is still unpredictable (one day it’s 80 degrees and the next it’s 50), it’s time to start stocking up on products that will keep your hair and skin moisturized and feeling soft. Below are a few of my faves!


Davines NOUNOU Pak
$29 at for salon locations

This restorative treatment is ideal for dry, stressed hair as it adds depth, body and volume. It contains jojoba oil to add shine; olive butter to rebalance color-treated hair; cherry oil (which contains high quantities of omega-6 fatty acids) to add moisture; and rhizobian gum to release water; something your hair needs so it never becomes over-moisturized and weighed down.


Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask
$72 at

This mask is an intensive, nutritional supportive skin-therapy treatment that revitalizes aging, dry and environmentally stressed-out skin. With each use, skin is infused with hydration and begins to glow. Over time, the appearance of wrinkles becomes diminished.

“I wanted a mask that could hydrate and soothe skin quickly, and be used year-round, nourishing the skin and restoring a natural glow. The high concentrations of algae extract, coupled with comfrey root, Jasmine Absolute, and Japanese Green Tea, make this mask one of the most potent anti-oxi­dant treatments on the market. This mask quenches the driest complexions, and can be used even on acne-prone areas. It’s also one of those products that goes missing because my mother and sister are always stealing it.” —founder Francesco Clark

Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm
$19 at

As if natural moisturizers like Shea Butter, Aloe Leaf Extract, Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oil weren’t enough, this lip balm also has Marine Collagen Microspheres that act like miniature water reservoirs. Together, these ingredients deliver intense, long-lasting hydration. Vanilla Planifolia and Jasmine Extracts add a delectable flavor that will have you re-applying—even when you don’t need to.

“I suffer from extremely dry, cracked lips, especially in the winter, and I wanted a lip balm without ingredients like Petrolatum,” says Francesco.  “The Jasmine Absolute and Calendula Extract help heal irritations on the lips, from chapped skin to cold sores while keeping lips moist and plump.”


Atopalm Moisturizing Body Lotion
$30 at

A lightweight, quickly absorbed, formula for dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin, this ultra-nourishing blend features olive and grape seed oils blended with Vitamin E. The fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula leaves skin glowing, energized and visibly hydrated.
