Ever feel like your skin looks dull and tired as soon as fall comes around?
Do you look in the mirror and ask yourself where did your summer glow go?
Well girlfriend, you are not the only one. Many of us struggle to keep our skin nicely moisturized during the winter and some of us get dry skin that feels so itchy it cracks, yikes!
Here I would like to share 5 different tips you can do at home or in the plane that will help your skin looking dewy, flawless and glowy all year round.
Physical exfoliants (spring/summer) are great to remove the top layer of dead skin allowing the new skin to get more oxygen and allowing that awesome serum to get absorb deep into the skin. Great for the summer/spring!
Naturmed Dermal Scrub $42
Chemical exfoliants (fall/winter)and enzymatic exfoliants work best for those who suffer from sensitive to super dry skin as it melts the top layer of the dead skin but gentle enough to be used a twice a week. Great for those with oily, acneic and mature skin.
This is my favorite AHA peel with 15% delivers results super fast leaving your skin super rejuvenated it .
Swiss Med Bio-Lift Peel + Neutralizer $99
Essences have become really trendy in the past couple of years. They have been so popular in K Beauty for awhile now. They are between a toner and a light serum, carrying gentle hydrating ingredients that will have your skin feeling dewy and refreshed.
My favorite essence is packed with antioxidants and extreme hydration to deliver an instant glow.
Diego Dalla Palma Anti-Pollution Essence Serum $39.99
Serums are one of those small but extremely powerful skincare product you must have if you want to step up your skincare routine and actually see results. Serums are packed with all the vitamins, peptides and nutrients that you will benefit in the long run. They are made from low molecular level to penetrate deep into the skin.
So don't be afraid to invest on a good serum as your future you will thank you!
Vitamin C serum (AM) This is definitely a must have serum. Perfect for the morning, it helps to brighten your skin and give an instant boost of sun protection. It helps to firm and tighten the skin. Good for all skin types.
Skin Accent VitaGlow C Magic Spheres $80
Hyaluronic acid serum (AM) make sure your serum is a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which helps to deliver maximum deep hydration, smoothing away lines and wrinkles.
Skin Accent Hydra+ Magic Spheres $80
Vitamin A serum (PM) This is another must have type of serum in your skincare routine. Not only stimulates collagen, smooths away lines, brightens the skin and minimizes the looks of scars. Vitamin A serum is the holy grail of all skincare routine. Make sure to wear sunscreen as it does make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
Skin Accent Skin Illuminating serum $89.99
Collagen serum (PM) one of my most favorite serums and yet it has gone completely under rated. Collagen serum is extremely light weight, it not only helps to plump the skin but also boosts the healing process of the skin and helps to stimulate the collagen synthesis in the skin. Use it on alternating days with the vitamin A for best results.
Swiss Med Bio-Lift Concentrate $87
Lately I have seen the market booming more with the use of masks. Masks are a perfect way to boost your skin quick in the shortest amount of time. Now we have so many choices to choose from:
Creamy/gel mask (all season)are great for those looking for instant moisture and it can be used overnight or in the plane. Just apply a thin layer onto the skin overnight and rinse.
Diego Dalla Palma Soothing Rebalancing Mask $65
Clay mask (spring/summer) they have become the go to mask for the past few years. But this mask is not good for all skin types. Only those who have really oily/acneic skin as it can dry the skin too much and leave it too tight, which is not good.
Hydrogel mask (all year round) give your skin a instant boost of hydration with the soothing action of hydrogel. They have a good calming effect into the skin, delivering quick results in 20 minutes. Some are made from collagen, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and vitamin A for brightening.
Diego Dalla Palma Oh My Lift Superhero Mask $24/single mask
5. Mineral Sunscreen
So under rated is the use mineral sunscreen and yet it is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine that most people forget or simply know why to use it.
Mineral sunscreen provides a full spectrum protection (UVA and UVB)rays, non comedogenic, water resistant and prevents cancer. Yes, UVA rays is what actually produces cancer and yet we are exposed to it 365 days a year. This is why you want to make sure you are using mineral sunscreen as part of your routine. Not only, protects your skin from skin cancer but also from aging spots and premature aging.
Now introducing mineral sunscreen not only will sooth easily irritated skin but it is great for the environment as it doesn't affect the coral reef.
My favorite brand that I can't live without and also the winner of 16 awards as the best sunscreen on the market is
Think Baby spf 50 $14 (amazon)
These are my best kept secrets to a beautiful flawless skin. It is important to apply all in order to maximize your skincare results and achieve a long lasting healthy glow.
