First comes Halloween fun and then, I must remind you, Daylight Savings Time! It is quickly approaching on this Sunday, November 2nd, meaning it’s time to “fall back” on the best beauty routine. The time change cuts the day short but on the other hand we’re afforded an extra hour of sleep – and the rare luxury of additional beauty rest must be taken advantage of. By that I mean truly taken advantage of in my house, as a "Do Not Disturb" sign will be hanging from my bedroom door!
Pro Tip: “Overnight is a great time to leave on a deeper moisturizer or mask. It’s skin’s time to renew and recover.” – Dr. Gervaise Gerstner, L’Oréal Paris Consulting Dermatologist
