Fall Skincare Guide: Bring Your Skin Back to Life

Although it may be difficult to accept that summer is officially coming to an end, it's time to consider what we can do to treat post-summer skin to make it glowing and healthy for the fall season ahead. Here are our top fall skin care tips for your best skin yet - healthy, hydrated, and luminous!

Although it may be difficult to accept that summer is officially coming to an end, it’s time to consider what we can do to treat post-summer skin to make it glowing and healthy for the fall season ahead.

Having a pro-active approach now will save you from that moment when you catch your reflection in the mirror and realize your skin is showing the effects of not enough sunscreen and not enough self-care over the lazy months of summer.

Here are our top fall skin care tips for your best skin yet – healthy, hydrated, and luminous!

BOOK YOUR CHANGE OF SEASON FACIAL

The first and most important step is to schedule an appointment with your esthetician for a treatment. Trust in the advice of a professional to analyze your post-summer skin, apply the appropriate treatment and make recommendations for a fall skin care regimen. All that time spent in the sun this pas summer may have yielded a few sun spots, sun damage or fine lines and wrinkles – all worthy of a once-over by a professional. We love a Brightening Hydrafacial like the Hydrafcial MD Brightening Treatment featuring the Britenol Vortez-Booster we offer in our SPA. It targets dark spots and sun-damaged areas, while encouraging collagen production and cellular renewal. We also recommend our Tata Harper Brightening Facial with Muti-Acid Peel, as it gently exfoliates the skin with natural AHAs to deliver an instantly luminous complexion.

DEEP-PORE CLEANSING

We know that you have been using a lot of sunscreen these past few months, and so you skin may be a bit overwhelmed and may look and feel dull and congested. Clear out clogged pores by applying a clay mask. This will allow you skin to better absorb the beneficial ingredients in your creams and serums. Kat Burki’s Dual Exfoliating Clay Mask is great for removing impurities and cellular debris, while providing a mild exfoliation and a boost of hydration.

THROUGH EXFOLIATION

Now that pores are clear, maintain skin by buffing away any build-up of dead skin cells that remain on the surface. Look for a gentle face polish or a night cream/lotion with AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids). This powerful ingredient will smooth away any roughness, as well as brighten the skin overnight! Environ’s Alpha Hydroxy Night Cream is a crowd-pleaser as it gently exfoliates the skin while providing a deep hydration for a radiant glow.

DARK SPOTS AND DISCOLOURATION

Vitamin A is one of the best ingredients to even out discoloration and hyper-pigmentation caused by the sun and environmental elements. Retinol, a form of Vitamin A, will help to diminish brown spots and blotchiness, while also illuminating the skin’s appearance. For beginners, we recommend SkinCeuticals’ Retinol 0.3. We recommend using it a few times a week to start. Once your skin gets used to the product, you can start using it every single night or every other night.

BRIGHTENING SERUMS

Even though your bronzed summer skin is fading, if your skin is healthy and hydrated, it should naturally radiate. Keep it nourished and radiant by applying a brightening serum in the morning and at night. Our best-selling brightening serum is SkinMedica’s Lytera. This serum minimizes the appearance of skin discoloration and dark spots. It has also been proven to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

HYDRATE AND MOISTURIZE

At this time of year, the summer sun, heat, salt water, and chlorine have taken their toll on your skin leaving it dry and dehydrated. Our natural moisture levels get depleted, which ends up leaving our skin not only feeling dry and rough but looking that way too. Moisturizers should have antioxidants and ingredients that help skin hold on to water, skin-repairing ingredients, and/or anti-inflammatory ingredients. Our clients are obsessed with Vivier’s latest launch: the GrenzCine Face Cream. It hydrates and firms the skin while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and increasing luminosity.

INVEST IN A ZIIP

ZIIP is an electrical facial in the palm of your hand. It uses nano currents and microcurrents to communicate with your skin cells, increasing their effectiveness, prompting them to heal, and encouraging them to make an abundance of Collagen and Elastin.

With 7 different treatments to choose from, the Pigment Treatment is designed to even skin tone by suppressing the overproduction of melanin that leads to dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. The six-minute treatment is meant to be used every other day until pigmentation improves and then once a week for maintenance after that.

MAINTAIN YOUR GLOW WITHOUT THE SUN

Summer is done but no one said we had to stop looking fabulous! Yes it’s possible to have ridiculously radiant skin without being in the sun, and yes, it can be from an all-natural formula too. The Impossible Glow from Pai Skincare is a great way to get that sunkissed glow in no time. Its all-natural and certified organic formulation give you a post-holiday glow without ever having to board a plane. Just add a few drops to your moisturizer and you’re ready to go.

Superkind Collection: A Solution for Sensitive Skin

A few months ago, Tata Harper launched a skincare collection designed specifically for reactive skin.

A few months ago, Tata Harper launched a skincare collection designed specifically for sensitive, reactive skin. This collection included a cleanser, a moisturizer and a mask. This past week, Tata launched two new additions to the collection: a serum and an eye cream, thus completing the Superkind routine.

With the latest launch of the Bio-Barrier Serum and Eye Crème, we thought we would shine a light on the Superkind Collection and walk you through the products. If you have sensitive skin and couldn’t handle Tata’s original products, listen-up! This routine is for you…

A SUPERKIND STORY

After talking with family members and friends who struggled with sensitive skin, Tata was inspired to create all-natural formulations that would be gentle enough for sensitive skin types. There seemed to be a common denominator when talking to those who struggled with reactive skin: there were limited options on the market for their skin type. The solutions that were available were mostly synthetic and they offered very limited results. The idea was then born to create solutions that would not only act as a calming force for the skin, but also deliver real results. 

It took a year of research and two years or formulating to create the Superkind Collection. This hard work led to products that are super gentle and super powerful.

SUPER GENTLE
This collection excludes a comprehensive catalog of 85+ common irritants and allergens that can trigger reactive skin and further compromise a weak skin barrier.

SUPER POWERFUL
Tata Harper has included a careful curation of 36 multifunctional ingredients that are able to transform reactive skin with green technology that it can tolerate.

THE ROUTINE

As with all of our recommended routines, we always encourage cleansing the skin as a first step. The Softening Cleanser from Tata Harper is non-stripping and works to gently dissolve buildup and impurities. Its formula is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and vegan. It’s also free from 85+ common allergens and irritants, as are all of the Superkind products.

Follow up the cleanser with the Bio-Barrier Serum. This all-in-one anti-aging serum, smoothes, firms, and brightens to restore a comfortable, healthy complexion. We love this serum because it offers real anti-aging results for sensitive skin types! Many anti-aging products contain active ingredients that can be irritating for reactive skin. This serum’s gentle formula acts as a calming force while still delivering real results.

Next up, eye cream! The Bio-Barrier Eye Crème helps brighten, depuff, firm and smooth the skin to diminish signs of aging and fatigue. Real anti-aging results without irritation.

Follow the eye cream up with the Fortifying Moisturizer. This ultra-silky and smoothing formula delivers a cocoon-like barrier that hydrates, fortifies, comforts, and defends reactive, stressed skin.

A few times a week, apply the Radiance Mask from the collection. We love this mask because it allows sensitive skin types to reap the benefits of a good exfoliation. This creamy, gel-like mask is infused with a delicate blend of self-neutralizing AHAs that replenish moisture and gently exfoliate to revive dull, stressed skin and reveal a healthy-looking, radiant complexion.

In Conversation with Juliette from Juliette & Chocolat

Our story with Juliette begins a few years ago, when we discovered her chocolate shop on Sainte-Catherine. We wanted to learn more about how Juliette & Chocolat came about and how Juliette juggles life as a successful business owner, mother, wife and friend.
@juliettechoco

Our story with Juliette begins a few years ago, when we discovered her chocolate shop on Sainte-Catherine, just a few blocks from Etiket boutique (we’re practically neighbours!). Our love for Juliette & Chocolat grew when we learned more about the woman behind the brand. 

In fact, Juliette & Chocolat was founded by a beautiful woman named… you guessed it, Juliette! All you need to do is follow her Instagram page to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how she runs her successful business with her husband and her 5 adorable kids. We wanted to learn more about how Juliette & Chocolat came about and how Juliette juggles life as a successful business owner, mother, wife and friend.

How did the idea of creating Juliette & Chocolat come to you?

I’m a foodie. Always have been, and I love to cook. Eating has always been one of my life’s greatest pleasures. I’ve always had a weakness for sweets. I can’t imagine ending a meal without a dessert, that just doesn’t make sense to me! When I go out to restaurants, I always start by asking for the dessert menu. Choosing my dessert first allows me to then choose my main course.

I got the idea of creating Juliette & Chocolat when I was at the end of my studies in Finance. At the time, I was looking for start-up ideas. Because I have such a sweet tooth, and because I wasn’t able to find any hot chocolate in Montreal like my grandmother used to make (!) the idea came to me to open a chocolate bar, similar to a coffee shop, but where one could sit and drink a hot chocolate. This idea then led to a menu filled with chocolate recipes, from hot chocolates and pastries to fondues and candies. I wanted Juliette & Chocolat to be a paradise for chocolate lovers. Finally, wanting there to be a French flare to the business, I added salty and sweet crepes to the menu.

With your own business and a family of five, how do you juggle it all and have time for yourself?

Hahahaha! I’m often asked this question. Honestly, it all comes down to being organized, while also being laid-back and taking life as it comes. Every hour of my week is organized, and I have “to-do lists” for every part of my life. I have a day planner that allows me to stay on top of everything. However, if at the end of the day, the house is a mess, the dirty dishes are still on the counter and the kids go to bed a little past their bedtime, I don’t lose sleep over it. I’d say that I also have an amazing support system in my personal and professional lives (even though the two overlap). I have friends and colleagues that are as invested in my business as I am and who want to see me succeed. I’m very blessed in that respect. 

How do you start the day? What is your morning routine?

My mornings are always chaotic: imagine a house of 7 people who all went to bed late the night before! I help the kids get ready for school, make sure I have my eye makeup on … it’s a little like a race against the clock, though we do manage to eat breakfast all together. No coffee for me, I have enough energy as it is! Instead, I make a healthy, vitamin-filled smoothie for us all to drink before heading out the door!

I then drop the kids off at school. Making sure everyone gets to school on time, with their schoolbooks, lunch and PE clothes is a challenge… it’s like a little victory every morning.

What does your everyday beauty routine look like?

Morning: My routine is remarkably simple. I hydrate my skin with a cream I have on hand (I’m lucky enough to receive beauty products as gifts, so I switch them up a lot).

Night: My nighttime routine is also simple. I wash my face with cold water and a gentle cleanser. Right now I’m using the Peoni Cleanser from JB Skin Savvi. After that, I hydrate my skin with the Peoni Oil from JB Skin Savvi. 

Do you do something special to take care of your skin?

Once or twice a week I will deep clean my skin with a Clarisonic brush. Besides that, I hydrate my face and body every night.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?

Happy people are beautiful, be happy!

Who is your beauty inspiration?

Audrey Hepburn

What does your makeup routine look like?

I apply makeup everyday but I keep it simple. I apply a kohl liner that I bought at a souk in Damas when I lived there. It’s a black liner that stays put all day. I love it! After that, I apply a few layers of mascara. From time to time, I add a neutral eyeshadow and a pop of blush to the cheeks.

What beauty products can we always find in your handbag?

Hahahaha, I have more toys in my purse to keep my kids entertained than I do beauty products. I always have a lip balm (does that count?). Sometimes, I’ll have a lipstick in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. 

What’s your signature fragrance?

I’m a huge fan of Angel by Thierry Mugler. It’s a sweet, candy scent and so enticing to me. I have no idea how I found it, but I can recognize it anywhere!

What do you do to unwind at the end of a busy day?

I play with my kids, I read, I cook, I watch movies with my family, I never run out of ways to unwind at the end of the day. I always find time to relax and to ground myself. It’s the key to not burning out!

Finally, what’s your guilty pleasure?

A good meal with a delicious dessert at the end.

How To Get Glowing Skin In a Few Simple Steps

Who doesn’t want glowing skin? It’s why many of us spend countless amounts in skincare and makeup products every year. While it is a goal that many of us strive to achieve, the steps required to reach that goal are unclear. How does on get that glow? Here's how...
@paiskincare

Who doesn’t want glowing skin? In fact, the word ‘glow’ is probably one of the most popular terms in the beauty industry. Everyone wants their skin to glow. It’s why many of us spend countless amounts in skincare and makeup products every year. While it is a goal that many of us strive to achieve, the steps required to reach that goal are unclear. With different sources offering up different answers, how does one get that glow?

We’re here to steer you in the right direction towards achieving that Gigi Hadid glow you’ve always wanted! Keep reading to discover the steps!

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C, like SkinCeuticals’ Phloretin C F or C E Ferulic, are a must in everyone’s skincare routine. This antioxidant protects your skin against free radical damage, all the while improving hydration and increasing collagen production in the skin. It’s also known for its brightening properties. The word brightening is another hugely researched word in the beauty industry. Bright rhymes with glow. Well, not really, but you know what I mean! Use a few drops of this antioxidant on in the morning after your cleanser and let it do its magic!

HYDRATION

Keeping the skin moisturized is key to achieving a glow. Two ingredients you want to look for are Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin. Both aid in locking moisture into the skin. There’s a common misconception that you can only get hydration from a moisturizer. While face creams are a great way to boost the skin’s hydration, other products can do just as good a job! In fact, many turn to hydrating serums, such as the H.A. Intensifier from SkinCeuticals to boost their skin’s hydration. Others turn to hydrating toners such as PCA’s Hydrating Toner, or even face oils like Pai Skincare’s Viper’s Gloss Age Confidence Echium & Amaranth Face Oil. If your moisturizer isn’t doing enough, it may be a good idea to incorporate another hydrating product!  

EXFOLIATION

A dull, lackluster complexion can be a sign that you need to exfoliate. In fact, exfoliation is a process that helps you get rid of the dead skin cells at the surface of the skin, helping you reveal a fresh, glowing layer beneath. With time, continued exfoliation can smooth rough patches, fade acne scars, dark spots, reduce redness and brighten the overall complexion. Exfoliation also helps your skincare products absorb better into the skin by unclogging your pores. I think it’s pretty clear why this step is a must in achieving that sought-after glow. Start by exfoliating once a week and slowly increase to 2-3 times a week, depending on how your skin reacts.

MASKS

Face masks are a great way to give your skin a quick boost! Not only can they help you maintain a glowing complexion by providing consistent hydration and/or exfoliation, but they can’t help you achieve an instant glow as well. For example, Consonant’s HydrExtreme Charcoal Sheet Mask delivers high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid to reveal a soft and luminous complexion immediately. Environ’s Tri Biobotanical Revival Masque uses a unique combination of acids to rejuvenate the skin, revealing a younger, fresher and glowing complexion. Discover our wide range of face masks to get your glow!

FACIALS

Facials are always a good idea. If you feel like your products aren’t doing enough, it may be time to seek the help of professionals! In our boutique, we offer a wide selection of facials that aid in boosting the skin’s natural glow. Among these options, you will find our Brightening HydraFacial and our Tata Harper Instant Glow Peel. Both designed to tackle uneven skin tone and texture to reveal a fresh, smooth, glowing complexion. There are also more in-depth treatments that can be done in a medical clinic, like microneedling treatments and resurfacing lasers.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY

To maintain a healthy glow, it goes without saying that you have to put in time and effort over time. A consistent skincare routine is part of that. Making sure you double-cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and use an SPF daily is crucial to attaining a glowing complexion. Trust me, put in the work and your skin will reward you.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

I know it’s cliché but you are what you eat. In fact, your lifestyle shows up on your face. If it hasn’t yet, it will in the long run! A healthy lifestyle means eating well, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep. Oh, and drinking lots of water! How you live now sets the tone for how your skin will look later.

What is Retinol? A Beginner’s Guide to Using This Powerhouse Ingredient.

Retinol is often referred to as a powerhouse ingredient. The reason it’s referred to as such is because it is strong. Its strength is what makes it effective, but also what makes it dangerous. Keep reading to learn how to properly tame this skincare beast.

Retinol. An ingredient that is heard of by many and understood by few. It’s often referred to as a powerhouse ingredient which makes it all the more mysterious and alluring.

Many of you may be sold on the idea of incorporating it into your routine without actually knowing what it does or how to use it. Although I don’t blame you for quickly jumping on the retinol bandwagon, I can’t stress how important it is to understand this ingredient in its entirety so as not to damage your skin. The reason it’s referred to as a powerhouse ingredient is because it is strong. Its strength is what makes it effective, but also what makes it dangerous. Keep reading to learn how to properly tame this skincare beast.

WHAT IS RETINOL?

Retinol (also known as vitamin A) is an over-the-counter form of retinoid, which is usually prescribed by a doctor. Retinols work by increasing collagen production as well as increasing the rate of cell turnover. New York dermatologist Shari Marchbein, M.D. mentions that retinols ‘also help treat acne, blackheads, and clogged pores by reducing stickiness of the cells that clog pores, as well as speeding up the rate at which the skin turns over and regenerates.’

Because retinol is an over-the-counter retinoid, it is milder than prescription retinoids which makes it ideal for at-home use. Ideally, one should slowly build up their resistance to retinol and eventually apply it every single night. Key work here is slowly. This is a process, folks. Patience is required.

WHO IS IT FOR?

As mentioned above, retinol serves many purposes. It prevents wrinkles, brightens dull skin, treats acne and fades dark spots. With that logic, retinol can help everyone from mature skin, to acne sufferers and anyone in between! Over time, retinol can help increase the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Not only does this ingredient provide short term results, but it also aids in the long-term health and appearance of your skin.

If you have perfect skin with no issues whatsoever, lucky you! In your case, most dermatologists would recommend you start using retinol in your thirties, just as your collagen production begins to slow down. In fact, as dermatologist Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor at Yale University explains: ‘Up until your early-30s, your cells turn over every 28 days, creating a fresh layer of untouched, pristine skin. But after you hit your mid-30s, your cell regeneration slows down, turning over every 50, 60, or 70 days. Retinol, however, sinks into your skin and speeds up cell turnover, causing your body to churn out fresher, smoother skin again.’

HOW DO I USE IT?

We asked our medical aesthetician, Paule, to inform us on how to properly incorporate this ingredient into our routines. For beginners, she recommends starting off by using it twice a week, every 3 nights for the first 2 weeks. If your skin is tolerating it well- i.e. not too red or irritated, then you can add another night per week to this regimen. As time goes on, you can maintain that same time frame: increasing by one night every 2 weeks until you’re up to using it every single night.

If you’ve been using your retinol every night for a few months, and you feel like you want to increase your retinol strength, you absolutely can. However, be sure to start the process all over again. Using it twice a week, every 3 nights for the first 2 weeks and increasing slowly. I cannot stress how important it is to go slowly, as retinol can burn like no other. Trust me.

If you feel like your skin is dry when using retinol, you can apply your night cream or moisturizer on top of it, 10 minutes after you applied your layer of retinol.

IS IT SAFE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

For those of you who have sensitive skin, Paule recommends using retinol with a slow release system. A slow release system ensures that the active ingredient is released into your skin in small doses over time and not all at once, which can cause irritation in some people. She also recommends starting at a low percentages. The SkinMedica retinol 0.25 and the SkinCeuticals 0.3 are great for beginners with sensitive skin. PCA Skin also offers a retinol treatment designed specifically for sensitive skin. Paule also mentions that people with sensitive skin should start with using retinol once a week and should add a layer of moisture on top to soothe and hydrate the skin. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use.

So there you have it! A beginner’s guide to retinol. As you can see, it’s not hard to see why this ingredient is touted by so many in the industry. There’s no such thing as a miracle ingredient, but this one is pretty close! Discover our selection of retinol products and get a clear, glowing complexion for the new year!

EltaMD Skincare Line : Our Newest Obsession.

EltaMD's skincare lineup offers the same no-nonsense philosophy as their sunscreens: sensitivity-free, non-comedogenic and safe for all skin types. We could not be more excited about this addition to our shelves! Let's get you introduced to the products!

Chances are you’ve heard of the brand EltaMD before. In fact, their sunscreens are probably some of the most popular sun care products on the market. They fly off the shelves at Etiket every year and it’s not difficult to see why. EltaMD has formulated their sunscreens to cater to every skin concern. From breakout-prone skin to dehydrated ones, EltaMD has a sunscreen for you. Not only do they protect you from UVAs and UVBs, but they’re also non-comedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free, which is why they’re beloved by so many.

To pair with their sunscreens, EltaMD has designed a skincare line that has been available in the U.S. and is now avaialble in Canada. The products are the Foaming Gel, AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer, PM Therapy Moisturizer and the Renew Eye Gel. This skincare lineup offers the same no-nonsense philosophy as their sunscreens: sensitivity-free, non-comedogenic and safe for all skin types. We could not be more excited about this addition to our shelves! Let’s get you introduced to the products!

FOAMING FACIAL CLEANSER

This foaming facial cleanser is great for getting rid of any makeup, oil or impurities on the skin. In fact, it’s a great addition to the double-cleanse! Use it as your first or second cleanse, or even as both! The thick, rich foam gently cleanses leaving your skin feeling clean and balanced. True to EltaMD, this product is oil-free, sensitivity-free and pH-balanced. A no-nonsense formula that gets the job done!

AM THERAPY FACIAL MOISTURIZER

The EltaMD AM Therapy is a lightweight moisturizer that quickly seeps into the skin, providing all-day hydration. For anyone who has an oily complexion, this product is ideal! EltaMD claims that the AM Therapy stimulates the skin’s natural water system to moisturize without oil or heavy emollients. The Hyaluronic acid that it contains also helps increase moisture absorption and retention. As expected, it pairs beautifully with the EltaMD suncreens and is oil-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and safe for sensitive skin. A great addition to your daytime skincare routine!

PM THERAPY FACIAL MOISTURIZER

The EltaMD PM Therapy is a nighttime moisturizer packed with ingredients designed to moisturize, repair and restore your skin while you sleep. In fact, ceramides strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier, while niacinamide and antioxidants work to improve the skin color and tone, while also speeding up the metabolism to maximize the nightly skin repair process. Small rice protein peptides stimulate cell growth and collagen formation, resulting in even more skin elasticity. As it nurtures, revitalizes and oxygenates the skin, wrinkles fade and skin tone improves, resulting in a smoother, fresher appearance. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? It can all sound a bit like a sales pitch but at the end of the day, ingredients don’t lie! And EltaMD is all about their ingredient list.

RENEW EYE GEL

Say bye-bye to under-eye puffiness, dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles with EltaMD’s Renew Eye Gel!
