When the weather is starting to cool down your skin gets more dehydrated. I recommend exfoliating more often. BareMinerals intensive Glow Pads are a great option. They bring back your natural radiance, improve skin tone and texture for a complexion that really glows. These pads are infused with vitamins and minerals to increase cell turnover and create luminous skin.
If your skin is prone to dark spots or is more on the sensitive side try a cleanser that contains salicylic acid or lactic acid. These cleansers are a more gentle exfoliant. I recommend Pore Refining Cleanser by Neutrogena. This is a cleaner/scrub combination. It’s more gentle for sensitive skin types. No matter what skin type you are you should always be using a moisturizer to help retain normal, healthy, youthful moisture levels. Your moisturizer needs Antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients, and skin-repairing ingredients. I recommend Complete Ageless Skin Renewing UV Lotion SPF 20 by Olay for a daytime moisturizer because UVA protection is sufficient and the texture of this cream is truly luxurious and works well under makeup. It has a healthy dose of helpful ingredients to prevent premature aging. For Night I love Clinique’s Super Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer. This cream contains tons or antioxidants which protect the skin from free radical damage and build stronger skin. Last but not least if your complexion still looks a little blah use a cleansing brush such at the Clarisonic once a week. It deep cleans your skin and the texture appears smooth and reflects light.
Why do women assume they shouldn’t use self tanner after summer? It’s the best way to keep that summer glow and perk up your skin. If you are fair try Jergens natural glow Express in Fair to Medium Tones.
For olive or medium skin tones use a regular self tanner that will deepen your skin about two shades. works great. Apply the formula right after you shower or wash your face and skip your moisturizer. Apply the self tanner directly to clean skin.
For a sheer glow that is over doing it for the fall I use a tinted moisturizer to add a subtle glow to my skin. I like Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer. The colors are exceptional and include options for porcelain to dark skin tones. To complete your look apply a peachy pink cream blush to the cheeks like Clinique’s Blushwear Cream Stick in Peachy Blush. Finish it off with a warm neutral gloss.
