Allure’s Beauty Bucket List

Allur'e Beauty Bucket ListAllure Magazine shares their list of “50 Beauty Products to Buy Before You Die”, and 2 SkinMedix favorites made the cut!

Clarisonic Sonic Cleasning System
It was Oprah who really launched this oscillating facial cleanser into popularity. “It’s a miracle massage for your face!” she said. Everyone in the audience got one—and Lady Gaga, Demi Moore, and Justin Timberlake followed suit. The brush uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth your skin. In just 60 seconds a day, it removes six times as much makeup and dirt as your hands alone, which not only clears pores but also makes skin-care products more effective. It cleanses so well that pores appear smaller, fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced, and your skin’s tone and texture improves. Just one minute a day, for the best skin of your life.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Glow Pad

You bet. And he even threw some vitamin D into the formula as well, just in case you were tempted to spend any time in the sun. Glow Pad transforms dull texture and tone into radiant, glowing skin better than MotherNature herself!  Shop Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads here.

The Legally Blonde star is modest enough to give credit for her gorgeous baby skin to great genes, but we all know that there is more to looking good! So, just how does she maintain her fresh, young look through all that work?  According to Reese, it all comes down to sun protection. Reese wears a sun hat anytime she is out in the sun or on the beach an never leaves home without Continue reading

Beautiful skin results from increasing skin density and restoring balance. Conventional skin care lines rely on aggressive, forced cell turnover, which provides short-term results, but prematurely ages and thins the skin. Circ-Cell’s goal is to provide a balanced approach with products that gently nurture skin to optimal health and beauty. Developed by a team of scientists, researchers, and skin care experts, Circ-Cell products are free of harmful elements, free of parabens, not tested on animals, and are environmentally safe.

As we age, our blood vessels loose their ability to transport blood and nutrients to the skin. The eye area is the first to show the resulting deterioration.

Modeled after scientists attempts to create a synthetic blood substitute, Circ-Cell ABO +|- Blood Serum is a rejuvenating eye gel that harnesses a blend of oxygen rich ingredients to dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.

Your Skin…Just Much Better


Call it the anti-aging essentials. Follow these wrinkle-fighting regimens and learn what to apply and when, for better looking skin.

1. Four nights a week – Build collagen

Vitamin A derivativies are still the “gold standard” for keeping your collagen stimulated. But since they can be irritating at first, it’s best to alternate your retinoid or retinol product with a gentler peptide creamWe recommend Pro+Therapy MD C8 Peptide Deep Wrinkle Treatment or Jan Marini Age Intervention Peptide Extreme. Some peptides, like those used in PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum, also help plump up your skin.

2. Three nights a week – Turn over those cells

To prevent wrinkles, as well as dull skin tone and uneven texture, use an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) cream, like PRIORI Advanced AHA Skin Renewal Cream, every other night. As you do with retinoids, apply after cleansing.

3. Every morning – Fight free radicals

After your cleanser and moisturizer but before that all-important SPF come antioxidants. Their mission: protecting your skin’s DNS from rogue molecules brought on by sun and smog that line and dull your skin. We recommend NeoStrata Antioxidant Defense Serum or DermaQuest Daily Antioxidant Serum–or for an easy all-in-one, try Topix Replenix Antioxidant Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50+.

…Between Treatments – Work in a night cream

As they fight lines, collagen builders and cell-turnover agaents can irritate and dry out your skin. If necessary take a night off and apply an anti-inflammatory cream with coffeeberry, like Revaleskin Intense Recovery Treatment.
