It’s that time of year again! No, I don’t mean shopping for back to school supplies. I mean changing up your skin care routine to reflect the new season—fall! Our skin’s needs vary with the seasons and to keep your complexion in tip-top shape, here are some smart “do’s”:
1. Slough it off
Most likely, your skin has been exposed to the sun’s wrath this summer. Days at the beach and picnics in the park are good times but not necessarily good for your skin. Additionally, the build up of sunscreen on your face may have clogged your pores leaving your skin dull and a little rough around the edges. Twice a week, try sloughing up some of the dead skin with an exfoliator to reveal a brighter complexion. Recommendation: Yonka Gommage (for sensitive to normal skin) or Yonka Guarana Scrub.
2. Kinder Cleansers
With the summer heat, you may have found your skin to be oilier than usual so using a deeper-cleansing face wash was appropriate. As the heat subsides and fall kicks in, you will need to start cleansing with gentler solution that removes dirt but doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Recommendations: Yonka Lait Nettoyant is a gentle milk cleanser and Yonka Nettoyant Creme is a gentle cleansing made specially for sensitive and irritated skin.
3. Mega Moisturizers
Lightweight was the name of the game in summer. But with the dryness of fall, you will need to slather up with something a little more heavy duty. If your skin still feels too oily wearing a night cream at bedtime, then only apply in dry areas. Don’t forget sunscreen during the day as the sun’s rays still penetrate through the clouds. Also, look out for Vitamins A, C & E as these provide excellent sources of antioxidants, help neutralize the sun’s damage and help to prevent aging. Recommendations: for dehydrated skin, try Yonka Creme 28 (can add a few drops of Hydrailia for more moisture) or Yonka Hydra 1 Creme combined with Hydra 1 Serum.
4. Get Your Mist on!
A hydrating mist is always one of our summer beauty essentials, however, this is one item that easily translates form the heat of summer to the cold of winter. Using a hydrating mist is great for refreshing the skin, protecting it from the elements and sets your makeup. Applying the hydrating mist before your cream can help your products penetrate your skin easier and help you to use less product. Looking revitalized and radiant has never been so easy! Recommendations: Yonka Lotion for dry skin or Yonka Lotion for normal to oily skin.
