- After summer your skin is tight and dry.
With the arrival of autumn, the temperatures drop and the inclemency of the weather increases. It is necessary to take care of the skin throughout the year, although with more emphasis on the change of seasons.
The end of summer is especially hard on the skin. The long days in the sun and the continuous baths in the pool and the beach make it look more muted, tight and dry.
- Exfoliate your skin.
The first thing to do is to exfoliate your skin intensely to eliminate dead cells. After sunbathing, peeling is common. A good ‘peeling’ will do you great to end these problems.
You do not need to spend too much money. If you want you can prepare home scrubs with neutral soap and sugar. For the face uses a specific product containing smaller granules as this skin is thinner and more delicate. Try to do it at least once a week to notice results sooner. For the rest of the body apply and massage with a mane glove to make it more effective.
- Face the sun and the wind.
During the fall you will have to face the cold, the wind and the sun. That’s why you need to protect your skin. Use a moisturizing and nourishing cream before leaving the house after a good cleaning. Much better if you have a protection factor, at least 15.
To prevent very dry and cracked hands during this time it is not yet time to remove the gloves using a glycerin based. You can opt for those that are scented to give a good smell in addition to moisturize. Finally, say goodbye to cracked lips by applying plenty of lip balm or petroleum jelly. Those are highly recommended because besides protecting and moisturizing they provide a feeling of freshness and volume.
- Cleanse your face before bed.
Take advantage of taking care of your skin in the hours of sleep. The first thing you have to do is clean your face with a neutral soap. Then use a soothing tonic. Finally use a moisturizer with antioxidants.
Your skin will be more luminous, but not shiny and will stimulate circulation. For an extra effect of nutrition and hydration apply a vegetable serum.
On the rest of the body apply moisturizer with special emphasis on the heels, knees and neck. Use a special hand cream.
- Recharge your skin with vitamin C through food.
After a few months under the sun it is necessary to include certain nutrients in your diet. It takes selenium, included in meats and seafood, to protect you from burns and delay the aging of the skin. Carrots, oranges and spinach are rich in beta-carotene, which activates melanin. Tea, cocoa and soy are antioxidants while cauliflower, parsley, raw pepper, kiwis, strawberries and citrus fruits are excellent sources of vitamin C.
Eat eggs, fish, peas and green beans. They contribute sulfur to your body. You can also include a beer yeast supplement. Silicon is essential for the biosynthesis of collagen and its absence causes stretch marks, loss of elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles. To avoid it take seeds and nuts.
