Fall is here and I’m sure some of you are missing your sun kissed look and radiance from the summer sun. Like me, you liked looking bronzed and beautiful and you’re now wondering “how can I achieve the youthful glow during the fall”? With these techniques you can enhance that warm glow and extra shine!
Step 1: Set up an appointment with a dermatologist or aesthetician to help you develop a daily routine to work on any breakouts, fine lines and dullness your skin may have. Facials every 4 to 6 months removes dead skin cells leaving the skin radiant.
Step 2: Moisturize daily – Moisturizer is crucial! When you skip out on moisturizer, your skin “kicks in” and tells your body to make oil to moisturize your skin. This is not they type of moisturizer we had in mind, right? Foundation will not go on smooth and can leave a “flaky” appearance that I assure you do not want. I suggest you pick up an oil-free moisturizer which will help keep your face both hydrated and a smooth.
Step 3: Exfoliate – You should exfoliate once or twice a week depending on your skin type. This will give you smooth, glowing skin! It help remove all unwanted dead skin cells you may have. Exfoliants do not have to be harsh. Don’t think more is better. Products with enzymes, retinol or a mild glycolic acid will do the trick. If you like the physical exfoliators, use a buffing brush like Clarisonic or use a product with polishing beads.
Step 4: Skin Tone – If you have dark spots or redness, a good remedy is Intense Pulsed light (IPL) therapy to reduce discoloration. If IPL is out of your budget, then invest in a good BB cream and your skin will appear more uniform under foundation. Some BB creams come tinted so concealing and foundation are all in one!
Step 5: Facial Masks – Think of a facial mask a super charge for your skin. A hydrating mask will bring moisture back to cells that give the appearance of a raisin instead of a plump grape!
I hope these tips were helpful!
