How to Care for Post-Summer Skin
Well, the leaves have all changed and, by now, are crunching beneath our feet. The last few mornings have greeted us with especially crisp air. Yes, fall has really arrived!
After months of sunny, outdoor activities, it is good to take time to repair and recover. Our skin, especially, takes a beating during summer’s swimming, boating, biking, sun-bathing, and all that running around outside. While soaking up the sun can be great for our mood and getting much-needed Vitamin D, it can really take a toll on our skin.
So, may we suggest a few recovery steps and a little pampering for post-summer skin?
Everybody needs to exfoliate. No matter age, exfoliation will improve the look and texture of skin right away by helping remove dead cells from the skin’s surface. Cell turnover slows with age and new cells take more time to reach the outer layers of skin. All that dead skin leaves a dull look and a congested complexion. Seasonal chemical peels and cosmeceutical exfoliators, like Image’s Total Resurfacing Masque, are a great way to accelerate cellular turnover.
Applying a cosmeceutical repair product like Image’s Max™ Stem Cell Crème or SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum® will help rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. The growth factors in these products help speed cell turnover and collagen re-growth, while improving the tone and texture of your skin.
Now, don’t think that the end of summer means the end of sun protection. It is absolutely important to use a daily moisturizer with SPF all times of the year. Image’s Prevention + line offers an SPF for every skin type and unique need.
With less time in the sun, comes less of the sun-kissed glow of summer. SkinMedica’s Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex will not only give your skin a beautiful glow, but it will also go to work deep below the surface to battle sun damage.
Take time to repair your post-summer skin. Trust us, your face will thank you!
