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!
