Changing Skin: 6 Tips to Update Your Skincare for Fall
By Pamela Vendetti, Lead Esthetician, Lead Educator – NeoGenesis
If you’ve been feeling like your summer skincare routine isn’t quite doing the job anymore then you’re right! September is a transition month that can still have warm days leading to cooler nights. Breakouts may occur as the oil flow in the skin during the summer is still occurring while the cooler air is creating layers of buildup on the surface of the skin. This can result in a dry, dull appearance by October on skin that previously looked so good.
NeoGenesis products, with our patented S²RM® technology, can easily help you transition from summer to fall with a couple of changes to your home care routine. These changes are easy to implement as you begin to notice how the different seasons affect your skin. These 6 simple tips will having you sipping your Pumpkin Lattes with the healthy and radiant skin you want this Autumn.
Tip #1: Your Cleansing Routine
Heading into the fall season, a gentle cleanser which soothes and calms the skin is in order. NeoGenesis Cleanser is specially formulated to gently remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil without drying the skin or affecting the natural pH. Perfect for year round use, this cleanser is particularly important in the fall and winter months when cold winds and heaters really turn up the work our skin must do to stay in balance.
Tip #2: Boosting Hydration
I’m not talking only moisturizers here. After cleansing the skin, it is important to keep the skin moist prior to apply the workhorse serums. This is the time to add the NeoGenesis Moisturizing Mist to your routine. This lovely Mist is lightly hydrating, oil free and has the S²RM® technology to protect against free radical damage. It is never sticky or tacky, just a beautiful mist which may be sprayed on or used on a cotton round after cleansing. This important step keeps the skin hydrated, which is vitally important during the summer to fall transition and into winter. Keep our travel size Moisturizing Mist in your purse or on your desk to mist as needed throughout the day.
Tip #3: Eye Love
Are you too busy in the summer to think about products that protect and firm the delicate eye area? With holiday season around the corner, it is the perfect time to add a boost to the eye area to counteract crepey skin, dark circles, and puffiness. Our NeoGenesis Eye Serum is packed with ingredients to regenerate the skin around the eyes and includes a generous amount of our S²RM® technology. The Eye Serum compliments our Recovery and Skin Serum products and may be used together for the best results.
Tip #4: Change Your Moisturizer
Fall and winter call for a change of moisturizer if your skin begins to feel dry under your current routine. NeoGenesis has two luxurious moisturizers that will come to your aid to nourish, renew, hydrate and protect your skin. If moisturizer is something you skip in the summer, then fall is the time to add our Light Moisturizer to your morning and evening routine. Wonderfully light, this moisturizer will protect your skin and give it the hydration it craves. For those who need more, our Intensive Moisturizer is deeply hydrating, while creating a flawless finish on the skin.
Tip #5: Exfoliate
That cooler, dry air creates a build up on the surface of the skin which creates a lackluster appearance. This is the time to add some gentle exfoliation with our Enzyme Crème Mask. This gentle mask can be used by everyone. After cleansing the skin, 1 to 3 times a week, apply a small amount (the size of a nickel) of Enzyme Crème Mask all over the face in a thin layer. Don’t forget your neck! Leave on 10 minutes and remove. For a really special at home facial, after cleansing apply a serum of Recovery or Skin Serum, then apply the Enzyme Crème Mask. Remove the mask as usually after 10 minutes. Your skin will be deeply nourished and ready for the moisturizer of your choice.
Tip #6: Add a Body Cream
Skin that suffers from dryness and a lackluster appearance isn’t limited to the face and neck. While fall and winter clothes cover more of our body, the skin can become extremely dry, flaky, and itchy. Your solution to all of this is the NeoGenesis Body Cream. The Body Cream helps to repair and restore the skin barrier with our S²RM® technology. This is a face quality cream for the body. Body Cream absorbs quickly and provides long lasting hydration from head to toe.
Bonus Tip: Humidifier
One of the kindest things you can do for your skin in the fall and winter is to sleep in a room with a humidifier. It is also wonderful for your hair and sinuses. We need to pull out all the stops to counteract Mother Nature.
NeoGenesis can help your skin through every season all year long!
