October's sunny days highlight crystal blue skies and mid-seventy-degree highs. Its crisp evening air is ideal for sleeping. Perfect weather? Maybe for fall fashion, but certainly not for beauty!
As summer's stronghold on frizzy hair and sticky clothing slips away, noticeably missing is humidity's main (if only) beauty benefit: glistening, vibrant skin. It's a fact: dry air brings dry skin. And, although trees shedding their glorious, colorful leaves may be beautiful, flakes cascading from dry skin are not! Arm yourself with the best topical products for your skin from Dr. Yagoda's monthly Top Ten Picks (but don't forget that topicals only cover up damage), and count on BeautyScoop to correct and repair damage from within.
