Raise your hand if your skin goes haywire with the changes in the air towards fall!
My skin is naturally dehydrated on the reg and sadly, it’s already beginning to show the side effects of what a dry season is capable of doing to it post sun exposure. Needless to say my skincare routine every morning & night following has hit overdrive to fight the signs of obvious sun damage the fall season unfortunately brings out for the world to see.
But don’t fret fellow thirsty skin humans! Thanks to friends at Ulta Beauty, I’ve created a great hydrating regiment to kick dry skin restoration into action right away. Following this routine daily, during these crucial times of late August & into September, will have your skin looking flawless in the fall months to come.
STEP ONE: Tone Down for What?
Every morning and evening skin routine for me begins with L’Oreal Hydrafresh Toner to gently refresh my face in a splash. Apply with a cotton ball as to avoid touching with the oils on your hands. The Hydrafresh Toner gently sweeps away dull, tired skin while the Pro-Vitamin B5 helps protect against moisture loss. Once done, your skin will feel smooth and soft while having an overall brighter complexion.
STEP TWO: Mask-uerade Twice a Week
Next apply Ahava Hydration Cream Mask to your freshly toned face and leave on to rinse after 3-5 minutes. But you could even sleep in it if you wanted! The Hydration Cream Mask is approved for sensitive skin so you won’t wake up with a rash or any other unpleasant visitors the following morning. NOTE: Only apply the mask once or twice a week after toning. No reason to overdo it.
STEP THREE: Get Hydrated Bright Now
Obviously this little jar caught my attention with its name – it simply seemed meant to be! But on a serious note, Lumene Bright Now Day Cream packs a strong punch with the assistance of Vitamin C and SPF 15 in the mix. If you’re someone with frequent dry skin like myself, the importance of applying SPF to our faces no matter what the day brings can be the difference between keeping your sun damage at bay or transforming into a leathery seal. And we all know that’s not cute.
STEP FOUR: Don’t Be Mist-ified, Your Skin Looks Flawless!
Finish your skincare routine with Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist to refresh and tone your skin as it firms and hydrates. Take this bottle to-go and apply onto your face and neck throughout the day. It’s even great to spritz over your makeup to help keep your original morning application in place! Although it seems like a small afterthought to your overall routine, every spritz supplements your skin’s natural protective barrier to fight damage and prevent signs of aging.
