3 Steps To Rejuvenate Summer Skin
It’s hard to believe that Summer is coming to an end! It’s still warm and still daylight after 6PM, but we know this is all starting to wind down, and Fall/ Winter will be here before we know it. ☹
There is no time like now to recovery your skin from the heat, and Sun. I know it’s been so HOT that you may have skipped your moisturizers, and the much needed sunscreen, but that’s exactly why you have to implement the recovery steps TODAY!!
Here are 3 steps to add to YOUR skincare routine… (if you aren’t already doing them)😊
- EXFOLIATION– This process can be physical, granular, or acid base. Depending on your skin type I would recommend the following for the different skin types:
Physical exfoliation is the use of a machine to remove the dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. Great for Dry Skin, Combination, Normal, and some oily skin. (not oily acne)
Granular exfoliation is the use of a water-soluble product that is grainy in texture that when wet will remove the dead skin from the surface of the skin. Great for Dry, Combo, and Normal skin.
Acid Base exfoliation is the use of a natural acid that can be derived from fruits, and plants. There are some that are chemical grade as well. This process penetrates a little deeper than the other 2. Dead skin is more dissolved than removed, which gives a longer smoothing affect. Great for ALL skin types, Dry, Oily, Combination, and Normal. Also, can be used on Sensitive skin, and Acne prone if the legions are healed.
2. TREATMENT– Treatments are what I like to call; some kind of repairing agent, like a Serum or Acne treatments. SERUMs are my favorite!!! They come in different forms and can do multiple things when applied correctly. I am using a SERUM to repair my dehydrated, and discolored complexion. I want to even out and get my glow back! 😊 Acne and blotchiness can be an issue as well. You may want to look for a treatment that will dry up your breakouts, and soothe the skin. Treatments are usually applied to the skin right after the exfoliation process, to help your skin soothe and refresh so that your moisturizer can do its thing…
3. MOISTURIZE!!!!!! This step is SOOOOOOO important! No matter what your skin type is, you should be using a moisturizer that is designed for YOUR skin type. If you are DRY-use a moisturizer that will put moisture back into your skin or retain the moisture you have. Oily-use a moisturizer that will give you just enough moisture and minimize oil, so you are hydrated but NOT overly oily. Combination- use a moisturizer that is designed for combo skin, moisturizing the dry areas, and minimizing oil in oily areas. Normal- can use moisturizers designed for a balance moisture. I like creams at night, they are a bit more emollient and a pump moisturizer in the day. I usually add an SPF separately in the mornings.
A great skincare routine is key! On a daily basis you should be using a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. With the added Exfoliation, and Treatments, your skin will feel and look brighter, younger, healthier and more restored.
