2 Ways To Get Radiant Looking Skin In the Fall

healthy radiant skin

Fall is such a beautiful time of year! For most of us, it means bright colored leaves, apple cider and comfy sweaters!

But, there’s a drawback to the Autumn season. Our skin becomes dry and dull. And, this doesn’t happen because it’s so much cooler outside, it happens because we turn the heat on inside, and as cozy as it may feel, it also dehydrates our skin. 

The good news is, you don’t have to settle for less than radiant looking skin no matter the weather! And,  today, we’re going to talk about 2 ways  to get radiant looking skin in the Fall.

Exfoliate

Our skin’s job every 3 days is to create new skin cells. Our job is to get rid of the old ones so new skin can show through. This is done when we use a facial scrub or microderm abrasion treatment 2 to 3 times a week.

Why is exfoliation so important? If you don’t exfoliate regularly, it’s impossible for your moisturizer to make it’s way through the dead skin to the new which is both a waste of 2 things we find rare these days; time and money.

So, when do you fit this into your routine? We recommend doing it in the evening. Because exfoliating can be abrasive, it leaves new skin  sensitive. Let it rest when you do. 

Switch Up Your Products

As the seasons change, so do  the needs of our skin. This sometimes means the products that worked for you during the summer might not cut it this time of year. You may find your skin might require more moisture during cooler months.

And, how do you know this? If your skin appears unusually dry and tight after using your cleanser, what you’re using may be too harsh for your skin. It might actually be stripping away the natural (good) oils it needs to stay plump and hydrated.

And your skincare products aren’t the only thing you should consider changing if you find your skin dry.

It may also be time to change your foundation, especially if you normally wear an oil control foundation. Dry skin loving options like KmS Mineral Perfecting BB Cream, or Select Botanical Anti-Aging Foundation were created specifically for dry skin and contain ingredients that prevent moisture loss.

5 Ways to Glow From the Inside Out

 

I don’t know about you, but, I find the older I get, the harder it is to guess someone’s age. Maybe it’s because so many women these days have a youthful, younger looking glow to their skin.

And, how do they get that anyway? Are they getting skin treatments and injections? Maybe some do, but for the rest of us that don’t have disposable budgets, you’ll be happy to know there are 5 easy ways to get that glow from the inside out without having to brave the doctor’s office.

Get Plenty of H20

It’s one of the most important gifts we can give to our body, but to drink 8 glasses a day is easier said than done for many of us; me included. The good news is that we don’t have to drink it plain to benefit. If you don’t care for the taste of water, add a touch of flavor with cucumbers, oranges or lemons. You can even add zero calorie flavor to your water. My favorite? Crystal Light Grape. 🙂

Call it a Night a Bit Earlier 

When you don’t get enough sleep, it disrupts your body’s water balance, which is when under-eye bags, puffiness, dry skin and wrinkles come out of hiding. Have trouble sleeping? Try swapping your phone, tablet or computer for a good book at least an hour before bedtime.

Use a BB Cream, Tinted Moisturizer or Liquid Foundation

There’s just something about liquid makeup and tinted moisturizer that gives the appearance of healthy, glowing skin. If you must use a finishing powder, use it sparingly, avoiding the cheeks.

Use a Luminizer or a Non-Matte Foundation 

Using a luminizer gives the illusion of younger looking skin, and what’s not to love about that? Luminizers have incredible light reflecting properties that “deflect” attention away from fine lines and wrinkles while adding a fresh looking sheen to the skin. Choosing a non- matte finish foundation is another great way to get a luminous glow.

Never Ever Skip the Moisturizer

You’d think using a moisturizer would be rather obvious, right? Even so, some find it daunting to use twice a day, if at all. And those with oily skin? They don’t think they need it at all. Interestingly enough, they’re the ones that need it the most, but that’s for another post.
