Any home decorator worth her chenille throw knows that before you paint the bedroom Symphony Blue, you have to prime the walls. The same goes for a fabulous fall face. "Many of us do a lot of damage to our skin in the summer, so we need as much help as possible," says Charla Krupp, author of the best-selling How Not to Look Old.
