letter from the editor

Backstage at a fashion show last September in New York, there was one model we—me, Lauren (our video producer) and all the makeup artists and hair stylists—could not stop fawning over. Generally speaking, any model who’s cast to walk in a major show is striking, but every now and again, we’re in the presence of one whose look is something beyond that—something not easily put into words. In this case, that something wasn’t easily shown, either. We each snapped photo after photo of her, and while they looked lovely, they paled in comparison to her in-person visage. Raw and unretouched they did, anyway. I bring this up because, unless you work in the media, you might find yourself wondering why magazines feel compelled to airbrush women who look good for a living. As someone on the inside, so to speak, I can assure you that perpetuating an unrealistic standard for beauty is not the reason. Retouching is more about art than it is smoothing out wrinkles, making a face more symmetrical, or carving out a slim waistline. And guess what? All of us are far more accustomed than we realize to a certain standard with regard to the artistic quality of the images we see in magazines, on billboards, and the like. Whether that’s right or wrong is another conversation entirely—and a long, complicated one at that. It’s just the way things are. To further put things in perspective, even professional photos of babies—you know, for announcements, holiday cards and such— undergo a fair amount of retouching more often than not. So do photos of inanimate objects, like beauty products and just about anything you can buy online or in a catalogue. I certainly agree that acts like airbrushing a gorgeous actress to the point of unrecognizability—or manipulating a supermodel’s body with such zeal that she loses a limb in the process— are both unnecesssary and slightly offensive. But I’ll gladly argue the merits of acts like taming a flyaway hair or erasing a blemish. (They happen to models too— sometimes, on shoot days.) This is standard-issue quality control. It’s not inherently evil. As you may have guessed by now, here at DermStore, we do typically retouch our model photography. But for this issue of The Magazine— in light of the many recent scandals surrounding the subject of heavyhanded post-production—we decided to forgo it entirely.

Elizabeth Franz Editor in Chief

Not one of the models you see within these pages has been retouched in any way, and I think you’ll agree: they still look fairly amazing. I admit that despite the circumstances—gorgeous models, talented hair and makeup pros, the vision of a skilled photography team, and access to all the beauty products anyone could ever dream of—we didn’t know exactly how this experiment would turn out. But we couldn’t be much happier with how it did. As for those circumstances, I get that most of us don’t have these sorts of luxuries at hand on a day-to-day basis. So I made it my goal to pack this issue not only with products that can help us achieve the best versions of ourselves, but with real-life tips for managing the issues that they—and also, our photo-retouchers, who got a nice little break for a minute—strive to correct. After all, this is the digital age we live in. And if you’d love to look as though you’ve been professionally styled, made up and retouched in your personal photographs—which, no doubt are seen by more people today than ever before thanks to social media— well, I’d be the last person in the world to call you vain.

We don’t need to tell you your skin isn’t the same at 45 as it is at 25. But we figured shedding some light on what drives its issues throughout the years—and revealing the secrets of an effective strategy—would prove beneficial for even the savviest skin care buffs.

30s

In your

40s

50s

In your and beyond

You’re over your acne issues (for the most part) and have not yet begun to see much in the way of aging. Lucky you!

You see some signs of aging—fine lines and wrinkles, anyone?—and might notice some dullness. That’s because your cells are turning over at a much slower rate.

Sun damage—in the form of spots, ruddiness and rough texture—is rearing its ugly head. As such, your complexion no longer reflects light evenly as it once did. Your skin could use some help retaining moisture.

Your skin feels much drier than it once did, and the signs of aging—expression lines, pigmentation, sagginess—are becoming more pronounced.

You might think your bad habits (sleeping with makeup on, skipping daily SPF) bear no consequence, but just because you can’t see the damage doesn’t mean it isn’t lurking under the surface. (Trust.)

Your skin needs some help in the way of exfoliation. Wanna get specific? You shed dead skin cells only once a month or so now, as opposed to every 2 weeks, like you did in your 20s.

Collagen stimulation is critical right now—it’s slowed down significantly at this point and cell turnover is even less frequent.

Now, fat that you actually want is disappearing. Specifically, what’s taking place is an atrophy of the superficial fat in your face. Combined with a decreased ability to retain moisture, this is creates the perfect storm for profound wrinkles and lines.

Make prevention your M.O. and you’ll thank us decades from now, when you look decades younger than your peers. The most important element in this plan? SPF, all day, every day.

Try a glycolic cleanser or toner—it’ll not only heighten the efficacy of your other products, but will give you instant gratification in the way of brighter skin.

If you’re already using a retinoid, that’s great— keep doing that. You should also throw a peptide-rich cream in the mix. (Peptides are known for revving up collagen production.) For immediate gratification, trust in hyaluronic acid—it plumps the skin like nothing else.

Switch it up and start using a richer moisturizer—one with phytoestrogens, if you’re going through menopause. Oh, and keep fighting the good fight with retinoids, peptides and antioxidants.

Develop—and stick to!—a good routine. Right now, that means removing your makeup, cleansing at night, using a good moisturizer even if you’re oily, and using eye cream. Interested in a serum? Pick one with vitamin C—it’s a gentle means of keeping a luminous complexion and it will protect you from environmental damage, too.

You need a vitamin A derivative in your life! Whether that’s a prescription retinoid or something over-thecounter is up to you. Start small and see what your skin can tolerate, and don’t forget to be super diligent about sunscreen—this supercharged ingredient might be the ticket to the fountain of youth, but it ups your skin’s sensitivity.

Professional microdermabrasion treatments—combined with IPL (intense pulsed light) facials, if you’re a candidate—will go a long way if you have the means to indulge. These and other in-office procedures (like peels) will aggressively address your biggest skin issues.

Ask your dermatologist about a fraxel laser treatment—this will aid in overall rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid fillers can also make a big impact by restoring lost volume.

Word on the street is that lipstick is the new nail polish. And while that doesn’t mean we’ll be seeing 3-D designs and painstakingly executed patterns on the mouths of fashion’s elite anytime soon—at least, I don’t think we will—it does mean that all our favorite brands will be upping their game in hopes of delivering rich pigment housed in impossibly luxe formulations. If you ask me, Ellis Faas has emerged as an early winner with the introduction of Hot Lips, a collection of cheerful, saturated hues that scream “spring” and go the extra mile with a lasting formula. Given the eye-catching range of on-trend shades Hot Lips are available in, it’s tough for me to say that my favorite thing about them is the way they pack serious color without drying my lips in the slightest. But given the elusive nature of that feat, I think I’ll have to go with it.

I llusi o ns Sure, you could doctor your own pics on your laptop or even enlist the help of one of the many “face-tuning” apps available— but in doing so, you risk telegraphing your penchant for post-production. And if you ask us, an ounce of expertly applied makeup is worth a pound of retouching.

FOR B RIGHTER E Y E S

This is the very same principle behind using blue lip gloss to make your teeth look white, just applied in reverse: when concealing undereye circles, look for yellow and orange tones to cancel out blue. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector in Light, ID 48670, $24

The more flawless your skin, the better you’ll look in photos— and of course, a great complexion begins with proper skin care. However, the quickest element to ruin a pic can happen to the clearest of skin: shine! Even dewy or shimmery makeup tends not to translate well on film, so skip it in favor of something matte. And if all else fails, blot yourself with some translucent powder just before shooting. Becca Blotting Powder Perfector in Translucent, ID 51427, $38

So long, intricate nail art. This season, fashion is all about vivid, punchy patterns—and bright lips are more de rigueur than ever. That leaves room for just one kind of manicure: something simple, chic, and most importantly, tailored to flatter your skin tone. Finding the perfect nail polish color is a lot like—hear us out, please—finding a foundation match. The reason? Both tasks require us to first determine whether our skin is warm, cool or neutral. “Although the surface color of our skin changes with the sun and other factors, the tone doesn’t,” explains makeup artist Elle Leary. The cool-complected should stick to pinks, while warm-toned women will want to reach for golden,

discernible pink or yellow? You’re lucky—you’ll find most shades flatter you. And whatever your tone, you’ll be pleased to know today’s nail colors are anything but a one-shade-fits-all endeavor. Fair or dark, there’s something for you.

he first non-prescription high-dose vitamin A derivative that can be used safely in the daytime? These are Verso’s words, not mine—but given that I know and love vitamin A derivatives as the single most effective way to turn back the clock on an aging face, they had me at that. (I admit, the ultra-chic packaging caught my eye, too.) But let’s not simply judge a book by its cover. Let’s talk about how well this stuff works! Verso—which, by the way, means “reverse” in Latin—depends on a brand-new complex called Retinol 8. What does that mean? Well, it’s said to be up to 8 times more potent than other non-prescription retinoids—but it doesn’t cause irritation, and it’s fine for use during the day. (Even has a product specifically formulated for daytime use: its aptly named Day Cream.) I didn’t see results with this regimen overnight, but 6 weeks into it, I do see an increase in elasticity (YES!) and softened wrinkles around my eyes—a boon considering I’ve sworn off my beloved injectables in pursuit of more natural solutions. –elizabeth franz
