Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter; our skin needs special attention. Summer and winter are two seasons in which extreme environmental factors prevail: the sun, the dry air and the snow can all take their toll on our skin. Spring and autumn, on the other hand, represent the perfect time to renew, to recover from previous environmental aggressions and emerge restored and refreshed whilst prepping the skin for harsher climates. Autumn is here, and you can definitely notice the changes in the weather. The drop in temperature has already started to cause issues for our skin. The skin becomes dryer throughout autumn and winter as it attempts to recover from the vast amount of summer sun. Luckily, Jane and Dick Waxing has come to save the day! Here are a few things you can do to prepare your skin for autumn. Repair Your Skin After the Sun
- Going out in the sun is great, but the sun can actually break down collagen and elastin in the skin, due to UVA and UVB rays. This can lead to premature ageing. Also, EAT your cosmeceuticals. Foods rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants such as polyphones, Vitamins A, C and E can help reverse summer damage, prepare it for the challenges it will face during winter and boost the skin’s immune system while preserving its quality and restoring its natural glow.
Make Sure to Exfoliate Moisturizing is a fantastic way to add moisture to your skin. After your skin has been exposed to the sun, it becomes harder for this moisture to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, which is the layer that is most affected by the breakdown of collagen. This is where exfoliation comes in. Exfoliating gentl y every day will help to reveal smooth skin. By removing the top layer of dry, dead skin cells, it will also improve the absorption of skin products. Make Sure to Keep Up the Sunscreen Sunscreen is a product that is used very frequently is the hot summer months, but barely at all when we head into autumn and winter. This is a bad idea – the purpose of sunscreen is that it protects your skin from the harsh UVA and UVB rays and, since these rays are still present all year round, it is vital to ensure that you protect your skin all year round too! Make Sure to Drink Lots of Water Water helps to keep your skin and your body healthy too. Drinking plenty of water, such as the recommended eight glasses of water a day, can help to moisturize your skin, and it can also remove and eliminate any toxins that may be present within your body. These toxins could come from food, or they can come from sun exposure. When toxins come from sun exposure, they are known as radicals and continue to the process of breaking down collagen. Once you have implemented these into your autumn skin routine, you will be ready to tackle the cooler autumn weather
