While summer is always a fun season, sooner or later frosty chills creep into the air and you know it’s time to pack away the tank tops and shorts for another year. Just as your memories of all the fun you had stay with you into fall, so can the damaging effects of the sun, sand, and water. Here are four easy steps you can take to get that after-summer skin prepped for the cold months ahead.
However hard we try to keep our skin protected from the sun, you may find at the end of the summer that your skin is showing signs of overexposure. Photo aging, the term used for the damage caused by UV rays, accelerates the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation in the skin so you need to start using a product to reverse this damage. A product such as ACE-Ferulic uses Ferulic Acid, Vitamin C, and other potent antioxidants to help restore the skin’s structure, fight damage from free radicals, and lighten areas of hyperpigmentation.
It’s easy to forget to give your skin those extra treatments during the summer when all you want to do is get outside and have fun! As summer turns to fall, reintroduce a deep conditioning treatment into your skin care routine once or twice a month to replace lost moisture in the skin. A deep conditioning mask is a great way to nourish the skin cells; especially if it uses a blend of peptides, skin-nourishing vitamins, and rich emollients such as Shea and Cocoa Butter.
Lose the Lines
All that squinting in the sunshine may have left the skin around your eyes looking less than lush! The skin around this area is thinner, drier, and way more delicate than on other parts of your body. The fall is a perfect time to add a skin product to your skin care routine that is specifically formulated to treat vulnerable eyes. Find a cream that has multiple benefits, such as Eyevage, which not only provides intense moisture for the delicate skin but also addresses the dark circles and bags that may have accumulated after all those night-long beach parties!
Bring in the Heavyweights
Needless to say, as the air gets colder your skin will need protection, so now is the time to switch from your light summer face lotion to something with a little heftier one. A product that has hydrating and moisturizing action ensures that you treat the moisture loss from the long hot months and restores any loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. Suvoderm night cream is ideal as it repairs skin overnight, boosting the structural network and making the skin more resilient as you head in to the cold, winter weather.
