It’s official—fall is in full swing! We love this time of year because you can undo some of the damage you may have done this summer. Facial exercises may rock but they don’t prevent sun damage!
As we head into colder temperatures, it’s important to adjust your skin care regimen accordingly. Below are a few tips for improving the appearance of your skin this season.
1. Replenish Moisture
When summer humidity disappears, we need to compensate to keep skin hydrated. Swap out lightweight moisturizer for a thicker cream that helps retain moisture and protect your skin’s barrier. This is especially important for your nighttime regimen, so that the skin can rehydrate during its rejuvenation process.
2. Cut Back on Exfoliation
Reduce exfoliation during this time of year. The colder, drier environment will not buffer the effects of exfoliation like summer humidity does. It’s still important to exfoliate—just a little less frequently. An excellent way to slough off the excess without irritation is to do a Face Lift to Go every seven to 10 days.
3. Continue Using Sunscreen
Just because summer’s over, that doesn’t mean it’s a free-for-all in the sun! UV radiation presents all year long, making sunscreen critical, rain or shine. Apply our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 every single day.
4. Add Vitamin C
Vitamin C acts a backup for sunscreen—it fights off UV damage that may not be fully blocked by sunscreen. It also promotes collagen production, brightens your complexion and reduces the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Use a topical like our Vitamin C Complex serum and increase your citrus consumption.
5. Take Care of Your Hands
Hands need just as much attention, especially with drier air in the environment. Invest in a rich hand cream—you can even use your face moisturizer. Apply sunscreen to your hands religiously.
6. Schedule Monthly Treatments
Commit to monthly skin care treatments in the hands of an expert—all year long!
