Sadly summer is over but now is the perfect time to switch up your skin care regimen! Summer took its toll on your skin while it saw the sun, sweat, salt water and chlorine.
First things first, for both body and face choose a different cleanser. You will want one that is gentle yet gives you a higher moisture level. Your skin is probably drier due to all the sun, sweat and chlorine.
Be aware that you should also exfoliate at least once a week. Some people think they need to scrub their face with a brush or washcloth. We at Gabriel Cosmetics always believe that natural is best, so look for alternatives to a face scrub that contains synthetic micro beads. Exfoliating will remove dead skin cells and allow bright, healthy skin to show through.
Now let’s discuss moisturizing. If your skin dries out during cold months, think about changing your moisturizer. If it gets extremely dry during the colder seasons, start applying your moisturizer right before you sleep. Even if your skin type is oily you can benefit from moisturizer, just choose one made for that skin type. For extra dry skin try using a hydrating mist for added moisture.
Lastly, drink plenty of water and protect your skin with sunscreen. Your skin still needs protection even though it’s no longer summer time.
Give the extra love and attention that your skin deserves this fall and you’ll be thankful once winter hits!
