Summer in the sun was fun and all...but fall is the perfect time to retreat and repair all the summer damage. I gathered my top skincare tips and products to help you make the transition from summer to fall.
I'm still tanned from my Greece trip (if you missed that post read about it here) and my skin is finally feeling less dry. To repair my uneven skin tone and hydrate the skin, my go to fall product is the Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Moisturizer. I use it at night after my serum. The combination of ingredients will hydrate your skin, promote new skin, provide anti aging, and smooth the skin. I've never experienced any dryness like some Retinol's do.
Oh, and make sure to use an SPF in the morning!
Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C (AM/PM)
Hyaluronic Acid is a fancy word but just picture a glass of water for the skin. I prefer my Hyaluronic Acid as a serum. In the past I've used the Trader Joe Hyaluronic Acid serum and Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench. Two price points but I prefer the Trader Joe's since it absorbs immediately! I keep it in the fridge so it feels refreshing and I combine it with my Drunk Elephant vitamin C serum. These two will brighten, hydrate, and plump the skin.
Every October select spa's will have specials on facials, treatments, massages, etc. I recommend calling your favorite spa and ask them if they're participating in spa week.
In addition to your daily treatments, exfoliating 1-3x times a week will help speed up the process of renewed skin. This is good if you have dark spots from blemishes or sun bathing. As a daily exfoliater, I've been using a gentle face wash/scrub from Cetaphil. I love a good 2 in 1!
In addition to skincare products, I always take vitamins for my skin. For years I've been taking Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Biotin. I find these help with my hair, skin and nails.
