For many of us, once fall rolls around, our skin isn’t looking its best. In fact, after months of high temperatures, sun exposure and an inconsistent skincare routine, our skin may be a little worse for wear.
The change of season calls for a skincare reboot. A routine full of active ingredients that will treat some unwanted hyperpigmentation, dryness, dullness and even acne is what you need. We’ve put together a skincare guide designed to shed your summer complexion to reveal a glowing layer beneath!
1. REBALANCE THE SKIN WITH A TONER OR AN ESSENCE
Although frequently overlooked, toners and essences are essential in a skincare routine. Depending on the toner, it can exfoliate, balance the skin’s pH and help the rest of your products work more effectively. As for essences, they essentially nourish the deeper layers of the skin, allowing your skin to absorb all the benefits from the rest of your products.
2. INCORPORATE A VITAMIN A INTO YOUR ROUTINE
If you placed your retinol aside for the summer, fall is a great time to bring it back! Not only does retinol even out discoloration and hyperpigmentation caused by the sun and environmental elements, but it also helps fight acne and early signs of aging. It’s definitely a must in a skincare routine.
3. YOUR DAILY DOSE OF VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is a great ingredient for overall skin health and radiance. In fact, it protects your skin against daily environmental damage and helps brighten your complexion. Using a retinol at night and a vitamin C serum during the day is a great way to get your glow back!
4. BYE-BYE DARK SPOTS!
Summer left behind some unwanted spots on your skin? Don’t worry! With the help of some brightening serums, you can lighten them up in no time… as long as you’re willing to put in the work. Consistency is key with these serums.
5. A DOSE OF HYDRATION
Hydration is key in achieving a healthy glow. A good moisturizer, packed with hydrating ingredients, is what you’ll want to reach for after a fun-filled summer under the sun!
6. BUFF AWAY DEAD SKIN CELLS FOR A GUARANTEED GLOW!
Shed your summer skin to reveal a fresh layer underneath! Weekly exfoliation is key in increasing cell turnover and keeping your complexion looking fresh and radiant. You can exfoliate your skin with serums, cleansers, creams, masks, whichever you prefer!
Boost the effectiveness of your products by incorporating microneedling into your routine. After cleansing and toning your skin, use Environ’s roller on your face and neck. This technique allows your hyaluronic acid, vitamin A and even vitamin C based products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, leading to better results. We love to use the roller with the Frown Serum from Environ because it targets fine lines on the forehead and crow’s feet. It hydrates and plumps the skin all at once for a refreshed appearance.
