Fall is the perfect time of year to focus on repairing post Summer sun damage, evening out the skin tone, and boosting hydration. Just as our wardrobe changes for the season our skin care regimen should as well. This means layering the appropriate serums, reaching for a richer moisturizer, and finding the time to mask.
Cleanse. I spend my time between two of my favorite cities, Philadelphia and NYC, so Biologique Recherche’s Lait VIP O2 is a must-have as it has a special antipollution complex. This milky cleanser is great for all skin types. Hydrates the skin and brightens the complexion.
Mask. I love Masque Creme Biofixine because it is supremely hydrating and smoothing. It’s even incredible to treat the signs of aging around the eye area. Perfect for anyone 40+. For those under the age of 40, I highly recommend Bio Magic Mask. It has great lifting and pore tightening effects.
Finishing Serum(s) can be applied before or after your moisturizer. Serum Fluide VIP O2 is great for all skin types and ages. If you want to switch it up or add another layer to really seal in the hydration look to Le Grand (40+) or Silk Plus (under 40).
Don’t forget to wear a broad spectrumSPFduring the day, even in the Fall!
If you are in NYC you can schedule a Biologique Recherche treatment such as Le Lift or Le Remodeling Face directly with me or any one of our talented estheticians. Rescue Spa offers the same treatments one would receive at the world famous Ambassade de la Beauté on the Champs-Élysées in Paris! ????????
Skin needs to breathe…to eliminate the dead cells which clog pores and slow down oxygen exchange, this treatment is an efficient cocktail of micro-crystalline algae, silk extracts and natural amino acid. The active products are combined with modulating techniques and massage into a purifying ritual that redefines facial contours and firms the oval of the face. Your skin is luminous, firm and toned. Le Lift treatment gives an instant lifting effect. (60 min) $200
Wider-looking eyes, more prominent cheekbones, softer wrinkles, a better defined facial contour…Remodeling Face®. Machine can perform all this magic for you. This machine uses state-of- the-art bio-electrotherapy for tailored beauty treatments. Remodeling Face®. Machine combines four types of electric currents: Galvanic current which improves the absorption of the active ingredients, low and medium frequency current which re-shapes and tones, Athermic pulsed high frequency current which revitalizes the epidermis. Electroporation, a high-frequency impulse current to make the upper layer of the epidermis permeable and help the active ingredients migrate into the cells. These four currents can be used either separately or in combination offering a wide range of personalized treatments for each “Skin Instant®”. Precise adjustment of the parameters enables the remodeling process to be activated in both the skin and the muscles. Remodeling Face® Machine and Biologique Recherche’s exclusive skin- care products are complementary and improve one another’s performance for both body and face care treatment.

Biologique Recherche Serum Elastine Pure: is a bio-serum that smoothes the epidermis, helps offset the skin’s loss of elasticity and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is recommended for all skin types and is ideal for treatment of first wrinkles, expression lines, and the eye and mouth areas.
Quick Tip: Create a DIY Eye Patch! Separate a cotton pad, lightly saturate each piece with serum and leave on for 15 min. Works like a booster, great for an instant pick-me-up.
Biologique Recherche Serum Complexe Iribiol
“T-Zone perfector. Helps instantly improve larger pores. Helps healing, post acne scarring, and breakouts.”
Biologique Recherche Serum Complexe Iribiol is a balancing serum that helps to regulate sebum secretion and tightens the pores. It is made with Iris and Zinc extracts for customized treatment of skin imperfections. It is recommended for skin imperfections, acne prone, combination and oily skin.
Biologique Recherche Finishing Serum Fluide VIP O2
“A must have in my bathroom medicine cabinet. It erases signs of tiredness and dark circles under your eyes. The serum can be used all over your face before or after moisturizer, protects every day giving you that famous, glowing “Biologique” complexion!” Reduces signs of fatigue brightens the complexion and leaves the skin smoother and visibly more beautiful. The precious and unique formula contained in Biologique Serum Fluide VIP O2 traps oxygen at the surface of the skin, creating an environment that stimulates the epidermis’ natural functions. This “anti-pollution”, oxygenating, moisturizing serum protects the skin throughout the day from urban aggressions. Its unique formulation uses revitalizing agents, Silk extract, and a Specific Biologique Recherche Oxygenating Complex that really restore healthy skin. It is recommended for all skin types. Amazing around the eye area!
Just as the skin has many different layers so does my beloved skincare regimen, as each one serves different values to your skin. Biologique Recherche products allow each individual to create a unique program for their personal best skin.
My recommended five step regimen starts with a cleansing milk such as Lait U to cleanse, hydrate and balance your skin.
Second? Lotion P50 Original “1970“ toner… a treatment in itself! Well known as a“facial in a bottle” it tops the charts in terms of a product that does it all. The phenol is antibacterial and balancing, the salicylic acid gently exfoliates your skin, and the lactic acid hydrates. Seriously, a perfect combination! After the first use, your skin will be glowing and pH balanced which is so important in order to keep the skin’s natural barrier and protection healthy.
Third. Here come the Quintessential Serums (one for each skin type)! They are all water based with active amino acids or peptides meant to treat skin imbalances. Use them after P50, they penetrate quickly and set your skin for the final step: Moisturizer.
Last but not least BR offers the most sophisticated finishing serums which provide instant and long lasting effects. They are formulated with botanical extracts, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, as well as potent moisturizing and oxygenating DNA extracts. They can be applied both under or over moisturizer for a radiant and natural finish. Finishing Serums aren’t to be overlooked, they prolong and protect the effects of your entire skincare regimen. *They also create a great makeup base.
There is technically one more step worth mentioning … Sunscreen. Yes, it should be applied separately because every well-respected line keeps SPF separate from their creams in order to maintain the benefits of the active ingredients in both products.
