It happens to most of us: come summer, your skin gets oilier and you switch into a lighter moisturizer. And with the change of season, it’s time to change it back yet again.

For Fall and Winter months, try switching to a heavier, more emollient moisturizer. And do not forget about the SPF. Just because you can’t really see or feel much of the sun it does not mean it’s not impacting your skin with UVA/UVB rays. Protect yourself every day!


Alicia – Brush Strokes’ Master Aesthetician – recommends the iS Clinical Protective Moisturizer.


According to the label ” it’s a powerful, hydrating,anti-oxidant rich daytime moisturizer that has extreme Ozyme Protection, which is proven to help prevent skin damage. Formulated with powerful botanicals, natural vitamins, and potent anti-oxidants.” It’s great for transitioning your skin to the Fall climate change.

If you tend to get oily no matter what season, she recommends pairing the moisturizer with the iS Clinical Age Treatment Complex. But wait, don’t be fooled by its name!



It’s not only for people with mature skin. It’s actually a ” powerful formulated formula that fights breakouts, encourages skin brightening as well as combats the signs of aging. It provides immediate and long-term improvements that help to naturally hydrate the skin.”

But be certain: just because your skin is oily does not mean you don’t need a moisturizer. Sometimes oily skin produces even more oil to compensate for its dehydration. So don’t be afraid to use a heavier moisturizer: chances are your skin really needs it!
