Autumn comes with the sad feeling that sunny days are ending, with lovely memories from vacation but also with concerns about our skin.
Now it’s a good time to repair the damaged caused by the hot summer sun. Dehydration, skin deterioration, visible wrinkles, lack of shine, pigmentation spots due to sun burns, exfoliated and irritated skin, broken capillaries, are some of the symptoms that we are feeling in this period, that’s why our skin needs a gentle approach, special care different from the one in the summer and treating these problems.
- For the beginning, exfoliation will help the skin to get rid of the dead cells, to facilitate the hydration and nourishment of the skin. Also, exfoliation will stimulate the production of new collagen, contributing to regeneration and cell renewal. It’s recommended an enzyme based product for sensitive skin, or predisposed to acne and a mechanical exfoliation, with products that contain granules, for dry or normal skin.
Other professional exfoliating procedures are recommended in October, when sun looses its intensity and doesn’t cause other damage.
- The next step after the exfoliation is hydration and nutrition. After a summer with a very hot sun, when skin looses very much water, is necessary balancing the hydration. Is recommended the use of hydrating masks once or twice a week. If your skin is dry you should be using buttery creams, based on oil and water, and if is oily, gel products or with light texture, like oil free type are the best.
Cosmetics treatments with concentrated serums and emulsions which contains vitamins and antioxidants that improve skin condition and reduce the harmful effects of the sun, are necessary.
