September is a time where Mother Nature is most confused. She cannot seem to decide whether she wants to bless us with gorgeous warm weather, freeze us to death or give us a torrential downpour. But Fall is not just a time for weather changes or a time where ICLS gets our new Fall flower baskets! It’s also a time where we get to rethink our wardrobe, maybe change our hair colour and definitely a time to change our skincare. Typically, summer skin is very different from winter skin. Fall is a great time to slowly transition your skin and get it accustomed and prepared for these inevitable changes so you can ensure your anti-aging or treatment regime remains on track.
In our last newsletter we asked our patients to fill out a simple SKINCARE QUESTIONNAIRE. We really wanted to know what skincare products are important to you, what concerns you have with your skin and where you value getting your advice from. So we thought we would share some of the most common answers with you:

When it comes to addressing the specific concerns that come with winter weather, most people are looking to:
- Find a richer moisturizer with lots of active ingredients and anti-aging properties to treat Wrinkles & Fine Lines and Skin Texture concerns such as Skinceuticals A.G.E. Interrupter
- Find a nice lightweight everyday SPF to protect the skin without being overkill such as Vivier 30SPF Moisturizer
- Start on a treatment regime to eliminate the Pigmentation, Freckles & Brown Spots that cropped up in the summer months such as Skintx
