Skin Care Check-Up

The transition from summer into fall brings with it a variety of changes to the skin. The build-up of dead cells from summer sun exposure makes the skin dull and lifeless. The skin also begins to flake away and the drier air of fall and winter makes the skin even more susceptible to moisture loss.

Colder weather works away at the natural skin barrier and for some it can also exacerbate a tendency to redness and rosacea. And of course, hormonal changes related to menopause only compound the problem as decreasing estrogen levels cause the skin to be dry and the natural skin barrier to weaken making your
skin more sensitive.


So, it's the season! Fall becomes a good time to give yourself a skin care check-up:

In just 3 easy steps, you are on your way to a radiant glow!

First, take a look your cleansing routine. Are you still using an astringent to strip summer oil that is now past season? Now is a good time to retire this product until needed again and focus on your cleanser as key to preparing your skin. You want to make sure you are using a skin balancing cleanser that helps gently remove make-up and debris, while restoring the skin barrier function. Are you exfoliating as part of cleansing - if so are you taking care not to be too aggressive?

Then treat. A penetrating serum with peptides, vitamins and antioxidants helps both with immediate hydration as well as providing long term support for anti-aging benefits.

Now lock it in. A layer of eye cream or moisturizer over the serum helps lock in that hydration and provides needed lipids to protect the skin from the elements. Look for products that offer skin nourishing ingredients that work to build collagen, elastin and extracellular matrix support.
