6 Tips to Keep Your Glow
By Pamela Vendetti, Lead Esthetician, Lead Educator – NeoGenesis
Keeping the skin barrier healthy is job #1 heading into fall from the summer months. Your summer routine will need a few tweaks to keep your skin glowing into colder months. September is a transition month of warm days leading to cooler nights. Breakouts may occur as the oil flow in the skin during the summer is still occurring while the cooler air is creating layers of buildup on the surface of the skin. This can result in a dry, dull appearance by October on skin that previously looked so good.
Here are 6 simple tips that will have you sipping your Pumpkin Lattes with the healthy and radiant skin you want this autumn.
Tip #1: Your Cleansing Routine
Heading into the fall season, a gentle cleanser which soothes and calms the skin is in order. Look for a cleanser that is specially formulated to gently remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil without drying the skin or affecting the natural pH. It is time to put away cleansing brushes or harsh scrubs during this transition period. The skin becomes more sensitive as the conditions become colder and more drying. See our NeoGenesis Cleanser for all skin types and all skin conditions. Men love it too!
Tip #2: Boosting Hydration
After cleansing the skin, it is important to keep the skin moist prior to applying your special serums. A perfect solution is adding a moisturizing mist after cleansing and throughout the day to keep the skin feeling fresh and more hydrated. Don’t let the skin dry out between home care steps. NeoGenesis Moisturizing Mist will keep your skin hydrated and your senses uplifted throughout the day.
Tip #3: Eye Love
Are you too busy in the summer to think about products that protect and firm the delicate eye area? With holiday season around the corner, it is the perfect time to add a boost to the eye area to counteract crepey skin, dark circles, and puffiness. A customer favorite, the NeoGenesis Eye Serum does it all. Your eyes will thank you.
Tip #4: Change Your Moisturizer
Fall and winter call for a change of moisturizer if your skin begins to feel dry under your current routine. It may be the time to switch from a light to a more hydrating moisturizer in the fall and throughout the winter. You want a product that is deeply hydrating without feeling greasy and doesn’t clog pores. NeoGenesis Intensive Moisturizer soothes and protects the skin while delivering the important hydration it needs.
Tip #5: Exfoliate
That cooler, dry air of autumn creates a build up on the surface of the skin which creates a lackluster appearance. This is the time to add some gentle exfoliation to your home care regimen. Stay away from harsh products that may tear your delicate skin. The right exfoliation leaves your skin deeply nourished and ready for the moisturizer of your choice. NeoGenesis Enzyme Crème Mask is ready to tackle the job of excess buildup on the skin in a gentle formula for all skin types.
Tip #6: Add a Body Cream
Skin that suffers from dryness and a lackluster appearance isn’t limited to the face and neck. While fall and winter clothes cover more of our body, the skin can become extremely dry, flaky, and itchy. Your solution to all of this is a luxurious body cream. NeoGenesis Body Cream helps to repair and restore the skin barrier while leaving the skin feeling supple and soothed. Lovely way to feel with all the holiday hugs on their way!
Bonus Tip: Humidifier
One of the kindest things you can do for your skin in the fall and winter is to sleep in a room with a humidifier. It is also wonderful for your hair and sinuses. It is important at this time to care deeply for your skin and look at every way we can counteract Mother Nature during the beautiful fall season.
