While Fall brings relief from the hot summer sun, it’s not time slow down on daily sunscreen, skin care and facial exercises. Some of the humidity and moisture may dissipate this time of year, which means we need to compensate and adjust our skin care regimes. Below are some tips to help you transition your routine during this seasonal change so you can maintain happy skin and a youthful glow.
1. Start the Season with a Facial
Slough dead skin cells from the summer with an in-spa facial to start the season right. This will prep your skin for cooler and possibly harsher weather. Plus, it gives you time to relax and pamper yourself. If you can’t make it to the spa, do a Face Lift to Go at home.
2. Incorporate Vitamin C
Now is an ideal time to add vitamin C into your routine, both with supplements and skin care products. Brighten up your skin with a rich vitamin C serum such as my Hi-Density Vitamin C serum. It will help remove sun spots and hyperpigmentation that developed during the summer months. Apply it to your face, neck, décolletage and hands every morning.
At night, shed dead skin cells and prevent the signs of aging with retinol, a potent derivative of vitamin A. This will help undo some of the signs of aging, even out skin tone and impart a healthy glow. My Retinol Skin Conditioner is an excellent choice.
4. Change Cleansers
When the climate changes, you may want to switch to a richer, creamier cleanser such as my Creamy Milk Cleanser. It is milder on your skin so that you avoid the irritation that might be caused by a harsher cleanser or one with exfoliant properties.
5. Use a Richer Moisturizer
As the air becomes cooler and drier, you may need to use a richer moisturizer to enhance the skin’s protective barrier. It’s a good time to opt for a product like my Ultra Hyaluronic Cream as it attracts significant moisture to your skin. Studies show it can increase moisture up to 300 percent!
6. Protect Your Lips
Often times, we experience dry, chapped lips due to colder weather. Protect your skin with a hydrating lip balm with SPF during the day—it serves as an excellent base for your lipstick or lip gloss. At night, apply vitamin E oil to rehydrate and combat free radical damage.
