Is your skin fall-ready?
Believe it or not, fall is right around the corner. The changing of seasons also comes with shifts to our complexions. The air becomes crisp and dry, which means our skin and bodies are easily devitalized. Protecting your skin from seasonal weather changes is an important part of any skincare routine. This is especially important for those with dry and easily irritated skin, but it applies to everyone else as well. Luckily, there are many easy and natural ways to protect your skin as the season changes.
- Exfoliate proactively
The trick to starting fall with refreshed looking skin lies in exfoliation. This skincare process helps take away the summer residue, getting rid of dead skin cells and decongests our pores. Doing this step as soon as the season starts is important, because it prepares your skin for other moisturizing treatments. Your skin will want to respond to gentle products that hydrate while they cleanse, such as our Glacial Oceanic Clay Mask. The Glacial Oceanic Clay itself is an excellent gentle, natural exfoliant. With its strong osmotic power and ionic properties, it enables this fine clay to penetrate the inner layers of the skin, pull toxins and poisons from the skin while drawing out impurities, and help reduce excess sebum and remove accumulated dead or dry skin cells both naturally and effectively. But exfoliating is not only for renewal, it also helps promote circulation while hydrating and revitalizing the skin, which keeps skin looking vibrant and radiant.
- Locking in the moisture
The next step is to move on to your moisturizing beauty ritual. Opt for a hydrating serum such as the ones with Glacial Mineral Water to layer underneath your daily moisturizer, which will keep your skin hydrated and provide an effective barrier to all that dry air. Adding a richer moisturizer to your routine is also necessary to help your skin during changing seasons. Don’t forget to choose the moisturizer that works best for your skin type.
You may have lapsed on body lotions during the summer, but it’s time to stock up again. Apply body lotion right after every shower to lock in the moisture in order to keep your skin glowing.
- Treat yourself with facial masks
In addition to changing your daily skincare routine for the fall, the beginning of the autumn season is the perfect time to indulge in a facial. Our well-loved face masks are great to boost your fall skincare routine. Round out your skincare regimen by multi-masking with our Transcend collection clay masks to tailor to specific beauty needs. Featuring Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay, our Illuminating Seaweed Clay Mask combines seaweed and acai extracts that help reveal smooth and radiant skin. Our Nourishing Spirulina Clay Mask contains the superfood, spirulina, to moisturize dehydrated skin for a vibrant complexion. Enriched with algae extract, our Revitalizing Algae Clay Mask helps to instantly hydrate and reveal a youthful complexion.
To prepare your face for the clay masks, moisten a washcloth with hot water and drape it over your face for a few seconds. This will help open your pores and prep your skin for a nourishing boost. Be careful not to burn your skin!
- Don’t forget about sunscreen
Finally, don’t neglect putting on sunscreen during the fall. Though we’re less exposed to the sun than in summertime, it doesn’t mean the harmful UV rays aren’t there. Sunscreen should be worn daily, no matter your location — indoors and outdoors.
So here you have it, our fall skincare tips to help you look and feel your best. Get proper rest, exercise, and make time to do things you enjoy!
