1. Alumier MD Retinol Eye Gel ($84, select spas and online at alumiermd.com)

You must be thinking, “Retinol in an eye cream? Are you nuts?” But this one works well without causing irritation to the delicate eye area. The retinol in the formula is microencapsulated so it is released in the deeper layers of your skin (where it’s needed) and won’t cause redness to the outer layers. The bonus: The gel is rich in Vitamin B3, C and E, so you’ll get all the nutrients your skin needs in one product!

2. Image Skincare I Rescure Post Treatment Recovery Balm ($78 to $94, epbeauty.ca for the location nearest you)

This is the perfect cream if you’ve had any laser treatments or chemical peels, because it helps regenerate new skin cells and feels super-soothing. With certified-organic ingredients, it will treat your skin well.

3. Jason Wu for Caudalie Beauty Elixir ($53, Caudalie boutiques, Caudalie.com, Sephora.com)

Just when we thought the Caudalie Beauty Elixir couldn’t get any better, iconic fashion designer Jason Wu partnered with this amazing French brand for a limited-edition version. The part mist, part toner, features soothing benzoin, toning myrrh, energizing rosemary, lemon and peppermint, softening orange blossom and hydrating rose housed in a luxurious glass bottle with a detailed lace motif in honour of Wu’s elegant designs. I love a generous spritz of this to perk me up in the afternoon!

4. Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 Lotion ($85, Hudson’s Bay)

Have you ever stopped to consider how the city’s air pollution affects your skin? Pollution particles can be up to 20 times smaller than our pores—yikes! Prevage City Smart acts as a barrier to prevent air pollution from penetrating our skin, as well as an SPF and a powerful antioxidant blend to treat any existing damage. This is definitely the complete package.

5. Princess Skincare Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask ($15, available in select medical spas; contact info@cromacanada.com for details)

This bio-cellulose mask enriched with moisture-rich hyaluronic acid is a treat for your skin! We love it as an at-home spa ritual because it only takes 15 minutes
to take effect. The hyaluronic acid smooths the skin, improves elasticity and provides a glowing effect. For an extra-relaxing effect, pop the mask into the fridge before so it feels extra-cooling.

6. Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 ($140, medical spas and doctors’ clinics)

This rich face cream contains three forms of natural lipids found in our skin—ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids—to help maintain your natural skin barrier function. The lipids in the formula help target problem areas found in aging skin, including rough skin texture, tightness due to dehydration, dullness and loss of volume. It’s definitely an ultra-hydrating treat for your skin, which we all need after summer!
