Head into fall looking flawless!

autumn-leaves-wallpapers-photos The summer was fun, but as it comes to an end, it’s time to do some damage control.  The secret to flawless skin in the fall is to keep the summer glow and repair damage at the same time. In order to do this, I’ve listed three simple steps that will make  this Fall the best your skin’s ever seen.

1. Keep the glow

It’s inevitable, the beautiful tan you got this summer is bound to fade. The sun gives your skin a dewy, hydrated glow.  To retain that glow, the best thing you can do is hydrate and moisturize regularly.  In order to do this, the Skin PhD Renaissance Replenishing Night Cream  will give your skin all the moisture it needs to stay hydrated and supple in the fall.  It’s made with a generous amount of shea butter, marula oil and jojoba oil in order to help heal dry skin and to  bring a natural glow.

2. Repair damage from the sun

Even though the sun makes us look good, UVA and UVB rays cause harm to skin cells and collagen production.  Peptides encourage skin cells to increase collagen production.  Skin PhD Peptide Complex Cream contains two types of peptide chains:  Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 and Hexapeptide-10. Over time the overall appearance of your skin will be more firm and more youthful.

3. Give your skin the vitamins it deserves

In addition to regular moisturization and repair, the skin needs vitamins just as much as your body does.  Vitamin C is one of the best vitamins that aid in cellular regeneration and repair. Vitamin C  helps inhibit overactive melanocytes.  This will help even your skin tone.  Vitamin C also helps promote collagen repair in the skin.  Click here to learn more about Skin PhD and products that will give you flawless skin, once Fall is in full effect.

The top three ways to keep your skin looking radiant all year-round

Your skin needs different things in different seasons.  Some people dread the cool weather because the low temperatures can make the skin appear dull and dry; but I think the fall and winter seasons give us chance to really give our skin a rest, and give it the  nutrients it needs before the spring and summer arrive.  Here are three nutrients that will definitely help nurture your skin, and keep you looking flawless no matter what season it is.

Everyone knows this ancient herb has been used since the beginning of time to improve memory, but it also works wonders for skin. Ginkgo Biloba will help improve blood flow in your skin.  This will help increase collagen production.  Everyone’s always raving about collagen, in case you want to know what it is in a nutshell, it’s the protein that gives your skin elasticity and helps skin keep it’s tight feel and appearance.

Vitamin Evitamin-e-benefit-skin-1

Vitamin E is a great moisturizer for our skin.  It’s especially good for people with psoriasis and other types of chronic dry skin.  The best thing about vitamin E is that it’s a great moisturizer that doesn’t clog your pores.

Three ways to keep your skin from having a Fall meltdown!

Fall is actually my favorite season:the best clothes the best colors, and the best weather, but sometimes  the dry air and cool temperatures can really dry out your skin.  Here are three ways for us to combat the fall dry-out.

1. Use thick moisturizers at night. Doing this will allow your skin to soak up as much moisture as possible with out interruption from things like the sun, sweat, smoke, and any of the other elements that may cause harm to our skin.  Pay special attention to parts of your skin that feel extra dry, or that are already peeling.  Skin PhD replenishing night cream is made with shea butter and marula oil, and is great for our skin no matter the season.

2. Exfoliate, 2-3 times a week. For some, this number could even be reduced to  1-2 times a week.  excessive exfoliating could cause your skin to peel from lack of moisture; on the flip side, not exfoliating enough could cause breakouts and make it hard to hydrate healthy skin.  Start with twice a week and see how your skin reacts. If you feel too dry, then lower your exfoliating to once a week. If you feel oily, or if your skin starts to look scaly, the up to thee times a week.  Skin PhD has a lot of great exfoliators for our skin; my favorite is the papaya exfoliator.

3. Don’t use hard soaps on your skin, especially your face.  Hard soaps, filled with perfume and sulfurs are always harsh on skin, but they become even more detrimental once the seasons change and cool weather starts to take its toll.  Use moisturizing soaps instead.  You will see a drastic difference in the tightness of your skin after cleansing.  My favorite is the foaming facial wash with marula oil; I have extremely sensitive skin, and this  cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated with no irritation.
