Summer is slowly starting to fade into fall. The sun’s heat blazes on and the days are still long and warm, but a crisp, momentary breeze as you walk the kids to the bus stop hints at the approach of cooler temperatures. You welcome autumn with open arms, because summer’s reign has been tough. Hours spent at the pool, outdoor sporting events and vacations have wreaked havoc on your skin due to the increased UV exposure, higher humidity levels, harsh pool chemicals and the stress of travel. Now that that kids are finally back to school, take notice of your skin’s new seasonal needs and feed it the nutrients essential for healthy, glowing fall skin. Try some of our skin saving products for your upcoming fall routine:
Exfoliation: Scrubs and Peels
Prevent your skin from becoming dry this fall and winter by regularly exfoliating 2-3 times per week. Exfoliation will help to remove your surface dead skin cells, ultimately helping your other products penetrate better because that wall of dead cells is now gone, revealing healthy, glowing soft skin. There are two types of exfoliation, mechanical exfoliation and chemical exfoliation. Mechanical exfoliation, or scrubs, involves using some sort of granular or physical exfoliator to roll across the skin, sloughing off the dead skin cells. Our Exfoliating Cleanser is a gentle, yet effective way to remove dead skin cells without damaging the outer layer of skin.
Chemical exfoliation, or peels, uses enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to loosen the glue-like substance that holds the cells together and allows them to slough away.
The perfect fall peel for all skin types is our Dermal Resurfacer. It is formulated to exfoliate and deeply nourish skin with pumpkin pulp, pineapple and papaya enzymes. Loaded with antioxidants, this fortifying peel rejuvenates and supports cellular integrity while clearing pores and aiding detoxification. Skin is left feeling incredibly soft, smooth and clean with a renewed healthy glow. (Beauty Tip: Use in the morning to reveal your beautiful skin all day long.)
Serums: Swap your oil controlling serums for multipurpose anti-aging hydrating serums
Serums are an awesome way to add extra nutrients and active ingredients into your daily routine. They are highly concentrated liquids that penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, delivering potent ingredients. Depending on your skin type, you can mix and match the right serums for your skin. You can also use multiple serums for added benefits.
Simply apply one serum and wait between 60-90 seconds before applying the next one.
A must-have serum for all skin types during the drier fall and winter months is our Ultimate Firming Serum, which firms and lifts the skin while hyaluronic acid replenishes skin’s moisture reserves and improves elasticity and stimulate collagen growth. Hyaluronic acid improves moisture retention and aids tissue repair.
Moisturizers: Swap your lightweight oils for Antioxidant rich moisturizing creams
Lightweight oils are perfect for balancing the skin and supplying just enough moisture the hot summer months, but as fall and winter approach, your skin can benefit from a little extra TLC and hydration.
