Transform your skin
Get the benefits of Canyon Ranch without leaving home
When I think I spa products, the first things that come to mind are salt scrubs and body lotions with active ingredients like essential oils and botanicals. Don’t get me wrong – I love these kinds of products and there’s a place for them in every beauty regimen, but they usually aren’t my first recommendation when it comes to serious skin care for those who are looking for real results.
That all changed when I came across Canyon Ranch Your Transformation, a line of nine skin and body products that blends the natural botanicals we’ve come to expect from a spa line and science that’s powerful enough to make a difference in the quality of our skin. And in keeping with Canyon Ranch’s commitment to health and wellness, all of the products are free of parabens, artificial dyes, alcohol and mineral oil.
On the natural side you get potent antioxidant protection against aging free radicals thanks to goji berry, bearberry and blueberry. The science side gets a little more technical, but your skin will look all the better because of it.
One of the key ingredients is a form of niacin-which apparently does more than your body good. Clinical trials have shown that topical niacin can improve the appearance of sun damage such as rough texture, uneven pigment and wrinkles. It actually works by encouraging DNA repair that helps restore the skin to a healthier state. Niacin has also been found to help thicken the skin (skin tends to thin with age) and strengthen the skin, making it more resistant to environmental damage.
I’ve been using the Balance Light-Weight Moisture (which has a great fresh scent and absorbs instantly) every morning and night, followed by the Protect UVA/UVB SPF 30 Facial Moisturizer when I know I’m going to be out in the sun. I’m also loving the Brightness Eye Cream that works double-duty on puffiness and dark circles as well as the Body Balm (since I’m pregnant and my poor stretching skin needs all the help it can get!)
Besides my new and improved complexion, I love how when someone says I look great and asks what’s different, I can say I owe it all to Canyon Ranch-but they don’t have to know that my just-got-back-from-a-week-at-the-spa glow is courtesy of a bottle. $40-$150, saksfifthavenue.com
