Skin Reset For Fall

Author Team Essentialist

The change of seasons is upon us and even though we’re summer lovers we also adore fall. The leaves changing color, cozy fires, warm comfort foods, chunky knits, need we say more?  Well, a break from the scorching sun has an added benefit of giving your skin a chance to reset.  Even if you crave those long sunshiny days remember that photo-damage rapidly accelerates the skins natural aging process.  So for all you sun worshippers out there, consider the seasonal shift a little holiday for your skin.

How to reset? Here are a few simple ways:

  1. Slough away dead skin with a gentle peel.  Look for one with AHAs and/or BHAs! If you're new to chemical exfoliants start slow by using your peel once a week and from there decide what frequency works best for you.
  2. Lean on your reparative serums and hydration focused masks, then moisturize like crazy! Hint, our Daily Renewal Facial Oil is a wonderful way to nourish, repair, and prepare your skin for fall. Use it alone or on top of your other moisturizers.
  3. Try a deeper peel or laser treatment. Fall/winter is the perfect time to try when extended sun exposure isn’t a concern.
Reminder, those UVA/UVB rays don’t stop with colder weather so please make sure you’re still wearing an SPF!
