Anti-Aging Skin Care: Handy How-Tos and a Great Giveaway

The giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered! Congratulations to our winner, Brittany C. from Texas!

It’s finally beginning to feel like fall in my hometown of Austin, Texas. But while I’m looking forward to sweater weather, my skin is wearing the lingering effects of summer.

I’ll be honest; I spent a lot of time in the sun this year. I love to swim, just like I did when I was a kid, but my skin isn’t getting any younger. Despite every effort to protect myself from harmful rays, I’m starting the fall season with a few more fine lines and brown spots.

I love autumn colors, but this is not what I had in mind.

To the rescue: Whole Foods Market’s latest series of skin care videos. In the first one, esthetician Jennifer Gallegos explains the basics of an anti-aging skincare regimen: antioxidants and exfoliation to remove dead, dry and damaged cells.

Does the change of seasons (and the cranking up of indoor heating) leave your skin a little cranky? Check out our other how-to videos to learn why breakouts occur and how botanical actives (a fancy term for therapeutic levels of plant ingredients) can help keep skin balanced, unclog pores and support healthy inflammatory response.

If you’re ready to go beyond your regular routine, watch our video tutorial for an at-home facial. It features raw, organic honey and MyChelle Apple Brightening Peel, which is a fun way to put seasonal ingredients to work for your skin!

Looking for more ways to revamp your daily regimen? Make sure to watch our new skincare videos, and tell us why your skin needs a little extra TLC. Leave a comment below by Wednesday, October 24 and one lucky commenter will win an Earth Science Active Age Defense skin care kit featuring Earth Science Whipped Cream Cleanser, Toning Elixir, Cellagen, i-Cream, Hydrating Day Cream and Nighttime Recovery Cream.

Let go of last season and celebrate beautiful skin!

The fine print: No purchase necessary. Promotion ends October 24, 2012, 11:59 PM CDT. Must be a legal resident of the US or Canada (except in Quebec, where it is void) age 18 or older to participate. Taxes on prize, if applicable, are the responsibility of the winner. Employees of Whole Foods Market, Inc., are not eligible. Void where prohibited.

This product sounds amazing and I would love to try it. My skin is naturally dry however illness and menopause is really hard to make it bright and youthful. At my age exfoliating seems to be essential however I am always looking for a new and more moist cream to rescue my face from the drought. Looking forward : ))

My skin is usually oily in the warmer months & very dry in the colder months. I've tried a bunch of products to help combat when my skin is dry but nothing seems to work. Its embarrassing trying to wear foundation make-up because my skin looks so flaky. I also have sensitive skin too so I'm looking for a product that doesn't have any chemicals. So it sounds like the Earth Science skin care kit may work!

I've had difficult skin since my teens. At 41, I still battle the occasional breakout and now deal with signs of aging. It would be great to try the Earth Science skincare line!

@MARIBEL - The first option would be to check with your local WFM to see if they have the products you are looking for in stock. If you do not have a WFM in your area, you can reach out to our Lamar store to see if they carry these products and they can ship them for you. You can reach them directly at 512-542-2243.

You inspired me to try Mychelle Anti-aging serum and will certainly try more Mychelle products in the future. Thank you.
