THE ULTIMATE IN PERSONALIZED SKIN CARE Does perfect personalized skin care really exist? At the Institut de laser Roy (Solange and Glorianne), all treatments take place in-house. After filling out a detailed questionnaire, you will meet with a specialist to diagnose the problems that require attention: spots, wrinkles, lines, and so on. Next, the appropriate Dermaceutic peel is determined: the Spot Peel (for abnormal pigmentation), the Cosmo Peel (for younger-looking skin), the Milk Peel (to restore the skin’s luminosity), and the Mask Peel (for acne). Safe and pain-free. Repeat after me: This fall I will shed my skin. For information: 514 439 0606 laserroy.com

The minimalist look is out. Chanel’s look this fall is precious, mixing flashes of gold and pure colours. The question being asked by experts about this season’s top look: “Are you beige or not?” This shade is a must for fall. The new makeup collection, Illusions d’ombres, from the fashion house on Rue Cambon in Paris, proposes playing with light and shade for multiple contrasts. The colours are inspired by precious metals. The look is a mix of audacity and extreme simplicity. Never before has jewellery so inspired our makeup choices: now it’s up to us to adorn ourselves with our most beautiful finery. And finally ladies, nails are the most important accessory of the season. It’s being whispered that nails are the new handbag! For information: chanel.com
