    The Key To Flawless End-of-Summer Skin

    The end of summer brings with it a myriad of changes. Everything from the weather to the foliage and food menu items to clothing goes through a transition, and so too does your skin. As a result, your skincare routine should also evolve with the seasons. If you want to retain sun-kissed glow of summertime, incorporate the following tips into your skincare regime.

    Undo the Sun Damage

    You may be religious about applying moisturizer with SPF, but even so, its impossible to protect your skin 100% from the sun. If this summer brought more freckles and age spots than you would have liked you can even out your complexion with targeted spot treatment products. Professional-grade lotions and creams that contain glycolic acid are the best non-prescription products for getting rid of hyperpigmentation. Select a product based on your skin type and apply it at night for optimal effectiveness.

    Hydrate Your Skin

    Though sun exposure can give your face a healthy glow once that glow fades you'll be left with dry damaged skin. Not only does dry skin promote early aging but also it can exasperate acne. The best thing you can do for your skin during the warmer months and the transition into fall is hydrate and replenish. After washing your face in the morning and at night be sure to apply moisturizer. Moisturizing will help boost collagen production which will keep your skin elastic and wrinkle-free for longer.


    Exfoliants are also great tools to have in your arsenal when it comes to combatting dry damaged skin. When you exfoliate you rub away the dead skin cells to reveal the smooth clear skin underneath. Not only will your face look better after exfoliating but also your skin will more easily absorb the other products you put on it making them much more effective.

    Switch Up Your Sun-Protection Strategy

    During the fall the sun's rays are UVA meaning your standard sunscreen likely won't do much good. Make sure your sunscreen is broad spectrum and protects against UVA rays as well as UV rays. Ideally you should use a dual-action moisturizer as UVA rays come in through windows meaning you're not totally safe even when you plan to stay indoors all day.

    Don't Forget Your Lips

    Though your dry cracked lips are reminders of your outdoor adventures they can be painful and vulnerable to further damage. Use a deeply hydrating lip balm with lip-healing ingredients to heal your lips sooner rather than later. If you wait too long you'll then have to contend with the damage caused by the cold dry winter weather.

    Mind Your Diet

    Your diet plays a crucial role in all areas of your health including your skin health. Foods rich in fatty acids such as fish and flax seed improve skin's elasticity and firmness. Fruits and veggies keep the skin moisturized despite environmental factors and foods that contain vitamin E such as avocados help protect the skin against oxidative stress.The changing seasons doesn't have to mess with your complexion. By simply revising your skincare routine as the seasons change you can keep your skin healthy year-round. ' "
