In a blink of an eye, summer is over and fall is here again. It’s a tricky time of the year because heat and humidity are on their way out, and cool, crispy days are on their way in. And with the need to change your wardrobe, comes the perfect time to change your skincare routine too. Here are a few tips to make the transition a little easier for you.
There are lots of great products on the market, but (of course) we especially love our own RapidRenewTM Skin Perfecting Polish for your face, neck and décolleté. It contains mechanical exfoliates called Magnesium Oxide Crystals, which are tumbled perfectly spherical for safe exfoliation that will not tear skin. The formulation also contains alpha hydroxy acids that gently slough off skin, plus, RapidRenew contains vitamins A, C and E that are packed with antioxidant benefits to help promote a clearer complexion.
If you’re already using a cleanser, this is a great time to shift to something new. Creamy cleansers are ideal for cooler months as they help the skin maintain the natural oils it needs. Bonus if you can find a product that fights sun damage, stimulates collagen, and infuses a hefty amount of antioxidants into the skin.
When it comes to cooler weather, don’t be afraid to pile on your favorite moisturizer – on your face AND around your eyes. You need products that are heavier creams so you can handle whatever weather comes you way in the cooler months. The air will become dry enough. Balance it with moisture!
Even though summer is “over,” and the sun doesn’t feel as hot, it’s as important as ever to wear sunscreen every day – even if it’s cloudy outside! One application of SPF 30 in the morning should cover you all day, and your dermatologist will be impressed when you walk into your next appointment with glowing, sun-free skin!
