Continuing the conversation with Elizabeth Aubrey

Now that we are moving into colder weather, do you have any suggestions for adapting our skin to the climate?
'You will need a heavier moisturizer! Our skin has different needs as the weather changes. You might also want to change up your cleanser from FOAMING to something CREAMIER and less drying. Its also ok for all you RETINA gals to get back on the junk now that our skin isnt working so hard to protect us from the harsh summer sun, but SUNSCREEN is especially important for you!'

Do you recommend any supplements for skincare?
'Yes, MSM, which stands for METHYLSULFONOMETHANE and it is an incredible ANTI-INFLAMMATORY for all connective tissue. This means, it is a great help for those who suffer from arthritis, but it is also a huge support for hair, skin and nails. You can add it in your smoothie at the Daily Juice here in Austin or take a supplement in capsule form, which we carry from The Inventive Line.'

Do you have a before bed beauty ritual?
'YES! CLARISONIC, CLARISONIC, CLARISONIC. That is how I know my skin is truly clean from all the grime of the day.'

What is the one staple that we can always find in your purse?

What music have you been listening to lately?

Do you have an item of clothing or favorite accessory that you wear over and over again?
'My LIZZIE FORTUNATO necklace from KICK PLEAT (Austin) - Heavy vintage chains woven with embroidery thread. TO DIE!!'

Is there a restaurant / dish in Austin that will never get old in the eyes of your tummy? 
'Kona Kampachi at UCHI and Tuna Tar Tar at VESPAIO (Mercury be damned!)'

Favorite Austin landmark?

What do you look forward to doing during the holidays?
'Well, every year, I dress up my little Pug, VIOLET, for Halloween and we head over to the pumpkin patch for a little photo shoot. This year, she was Frida Kahlo....enjoy!'

In our previous post, Elizabeth mentioned HYALURONIC ACID as her favorite beauty product. 
Well, if you are around Sabia on a regular basis, you know the benefits of this amazing product by the INVENTIVE LINE, Marisa.
But, in case you were not aware of all the goodness Hyaluronic has, we wanted to share with you.
This fully organic, rejuvenating compound with superior moisturizing properties reduces the appearance of old and new scar tissue and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Non-comedogenic, this formula penetrates deeply into the skin, supporting collagen and elastin activity and improving the skin's regenerative capabilities. Hyaluronic Acid, a natural humectant, derived from sugar beets, which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, constitutes 40 percent of this high-quality formula. The powerful properties of Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Serum draw moisture from the environment directly into the surface of your skin. There is not a more effective anti-aging moisturizing serum on the global market today. Each application will give you a younger, firmer, and fresher complexion.
