Before you know it, summer will be at an end.
Sun, pool, beach and other skin influences during the last few months will be a thing of the past.
So what can you do to get your skin ready for the fall?
==>Get a skin analysis. Go to a spa or luxury salon. You can also go to your dermatologist or other skin care professional. Have your skin evaluated for discolorations, dryness, etc. Summer activities may have caused damage to your skin and may require special care or moisturizers.
==>Exfoliate. Just as the leaves will be changing, it's time to get rid of any dead, dry summer skin. A fresh, new layer of skin will be exposed and ready for the cooler months. Your skin will be more alive and brighter. You may also want to consider a daily skin cream with collagen to help boost the skin's elasticity and vibrancy.
==>SPF It. Even though summer may be over, don't stop protecting your skin. Wear a good, non-oily, daily moisturizer with SPF 30. This will continue to protect your skin from UV rays through months where although you're not in a swimsuit, your face will still be exposed to sunlight.
==>Night-Time Serums. During colder months, your skin loses moisture more quickly. In addition to staying hydrated, lock in your skin's moisture with a high quality serum. This also helps reduce light wrinkles and prevents skin aging.
==> Clean & Cleanse. During the summer, the use of tanning products may have caused more breakouts or blackheads. After you exfoliate, it's good to use a product that can help remove blackheads (like the Biore Pore Strips) and then use a gentle astringent to shrink pores.
Just as spring is a great season to clean house (with a spring cleaning), the fall is a great time to clean your skin. Get rid of those old skin cells and protect and preserve your skin for the cooler months ahead.
[Editor's Note: All exfoliators are not created equal. Scarology's natural fruit exfoliator is gentle yet powerful. It helps remove dry, dead skin cells and stimulates the surrounding skin, leaving a radiant appearance.
