HYDRATION

After drying out in the sun all summer, it is important to put that moisture back in. Super-charge your skin’s moisture levels and undo dehydrating damage caused by sunshine, salt, and swimming.
Autumn is a great time for your skin to recover and hydrate. From masks and serums to oils and balms, whatever your preference there’s a moisture-boosting skin treatment to suit.  From masks and serums to oils and balms, whatever your preference there’s a moisture-boosting skin treatment to suit.
Start on your road to recovery with a gentle and mild cleansing routine. To help minimize the signs of sun-damaged skin, we suggest investing in one infused with vitamin C, which not only gives you great antioxidant protection but also improves skin firmness. A rich moisturizer used daily, will restore the skin as well as protect it from the upcoming cold, windy weather.
Before applying your day or night cream, use a hydrating serum, and apply a hydrating mask 2-3 times a week to keep your skin supple, healthy-looking, with less visible fine lines and wrinkles.

PRO TIP: Ideal for dehydrated or damaged skin, serums deliver a more potent dose of hydration and anti-aging benefits because they are lighter and contain a higher concentration of ingredients. Combine your serum with a moisturizing oil. Apply it after your serum is completely absorbed or mix one or two drops into your serum (or moisturizer) to strengthen the skin and boost hydration.

EXFOLIATION

Regular exfoliation is one of the best ways to keep your skin clear, healthy, and younger-looking. This is why exfoliating on a regular basis is important, as the process removes those cells that are clinging on, to reveal the fresher, younger skin cells below.

Using mechanical exfoliation, dead skin cells are physically rubbed off with an abrasive. Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, uses enzymes, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids to loosen the glue-like substance that holds the cells together, allowing them to slough away. You can exfoliate at home, spa or your dermatologist’s office to help unclog pores, stop breakouts, smooth wrinkles, and even make dry, dull skin a thing of the past.

PRO TIP: Don’t forget to exfoliate yor body once a week. Scrub the exfoliant of your choice over your skin in small, circular motions. Concentrate longer on areas such as your knees and elbows which are prone to dry skin.
