Like it or not the nights are getting longer and the days are getting shorter and fall is well on its way! This means beautiful changing leaves and that we can start adding cashmere sweaters, boots and scarves to our outfits! It also means cooler nights and drier air and these significant transitions in the weather cause skin to lose some of its natural moisture. It is so normal (and important) to adapt any skin care regimen for the change in seasons!
The skin tends to be drier and more dehydrated during this time of year. Therefore, hydrating the surface of the skin is the most important thing to do! Hyaluronic Acid is a fantastic water binder (it can hold 1,000 times its weight in water) which is hydrating but not heavy and helps to lock in moisture to help shield your skin! glo therapeutics Advanced B5 Hydration contains Hyaluronic Acid, D-Panthenol (which helps your body create its own Hyaluronic Acid) and an ingredient called Cromoist CM Glucan which stimulates the skin’s own defense system.
Bump Up the Moisturizer
It’s fairly common to transition your moisturizer as well with the seasons and use something a bit more emollient. For example, If you have been using glo therapeutics Oil Control Emulsion switch to the Oil Free Moisturizer. If you have been using Conditioning Hydration Cream switch to the slightly more emollient Vita E Essential Cream or Moisture Rich Cream to help condition and moisturize the skin.
One of the keys to having great skin as the weather transitions is bumping up your exfoliation technique. Try using the delicious Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub, which in my opinion smells like autumn, to break down dead skin cells with both Pumpkin Enzymes and physical exfoliants like Date Seeds and Jojoba Beads. Or, make an appointment at a glo therapeutics spa for a chemical exfoliation treatment, find your nearest location by calling (800)232-0398.
Eliminate Summer Sun Damage
Unfortunately, now is the time that all of that summer fun or (gasp!) that accidental summer sunburn will appear as sun spots on your face. Try using one of glo therapeutics’ serums to treat hyperpigementation, we recommend the Lightening Serum, Brightening Serum or Triple Action Serums to treat any darkness caused by sun exposure. Read these tips for finding the right serum for you.
Don’t forget that your scalp is skin and can get dry too! Rather than wearing your scalp on your shoulder try glo essentials Intense Replenish Hydro Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner to replenish and nourish dry, damaged and over-processed hair. Treat scalp weekly with glo essentials Intense Recovery Conditioning Mask to deep condition and strengthen hair.
