Your summer tan is finally looking just right and you love the glow in your skin. The problem? Summer is over and winter will be here sooner than you think.
What can you do to prevent that summer-glow from disappearing?
Here are 3 ways that can help:
Regular Exfoliation //
Without proper exfoliation, the skin can develop a dull appearance. This can be caused by several factors, but mainly a build-up of dirt, debris, oil and dead skin cells. This build-up is preventing the skin from receiving the proper oxygen needed to keep skin glowing and healthy-looking. It can also impact the amount of serum and moisturizer being absorbed into the skin. Recommendation: Exfoliate 2-3 times per week.
Topical Vitamin C Application //
Vitamin C (or I-ascorbic acid) is an antioxydant that can be used topically in the form of a serum or moisturizer to help repair skin cells and restore collagen production. In addition, vitamin c works as a brightening agent by targeting uneven skin tone and texture and by creating younger and healthier-looking skin. Recommendation: Apply a vitamin c serum every night, before going to sleep.
Regular Facials //
Booking a facial every 6-8 weeks is an integral-part to helping keep your skin glowing all-year round. A deep cleansing and exfoliation treatment that can only be performed by a skin care professional is essential to help remove any further debris from the skin’s surface. Recommendation: Guinot’s Beaute Neuve Double-Peeling Facial (with a pure vitamin c mask) or Aveda’s Dual Exfoliation Peel Facial.
