Just because summer is coming to an end doesn't mean your radiant skin has to go with it. Embrace the changing season by keeping your summer glow alive with these effortless tricks. Not only will it boost your mood as temperatures drop, but it will also assist your skin in transitioning from the heat and humidity of summer to the cooler, drier conditions ahead.
Glow from the inside
Aiding your body's cellular health has visible effects on your skin, hair, and overall appearance. Even as the weather cools down, ensure you stay hydrated by drinking at least two liters of water per day. Incorporate skin-nurturing foods into your diet such as ginger, chia seeds, oily fish, and avocado, renowned for their ability to calm skin, promote collagen synthesis, and maintain optimal hydration levels.
Nourish the outside
As you cultivate radiance from within, it's essential to care for your skin externally, especially during seasonal transitions. Combat the harsh effects of changing weather with premium skincare essentials. Oil-based cleansers provide a gentle yet effective cleansing solution suitable for all skin types, including oily skin, ensuring year-round skin nourishment. After your nightly cleanse, apply your preferred serums and indulge in a hydrating night cream. For added moisture during cooler months, consider opting for a richer night cream to combat dryness.
Sleep on silk
Don’t let that gorgeous, nourishing skin care end up smeared across your pillow. A silk pillowcase is non-absorbent, leaving the product – and moisture – on your skin (unlike, say, cotton). It also helps to wick away any unwanted oils, and keep your skin crease-free overnight.
And sleep some more
As we sleep, our skin undergoes a natural detoxification process, shedding fluids and toxins, while our cells work tirelessly to repair and regenerate. Quality sleep is paramount for stimulating collagen production, resulting in fresh, glowing skin. Ensure you get a restful 7–9 hours of sleep each night to awaken with revitalized, plump, and luminous skin, irrespective of the season. Give your self the best chance, with a silk sleep mask.
