It’s that time of year again! Summer has run its course and is passing the baton to fall, a season we welcome with open arms. But with all the joys of sweater weather, pumpkin spice and flannel, we can’t forget about that crisp autumn wind. Seasonal weather changes take a toll on your skin. As your body’s largest organ, your skin is most susceptible to damage and the dryness that comes along with colder weather.
That is why it’s important to take care of your skin with a consistent care regimen. Your friends at XOMA are here to tell you about 4 must-have beauty products to keep your skin protected and supple this autumn.
The transition from hot to cold weather can sap your skin’s moisture, and there is nothing worse than dry skin! Now more than ever, it is important to nourish your skin to avoid excessive dryness. Apply moisturizer to a clean face to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and create a protective barrier between your delicate skin and the harsh autumn winds.
Though summer is wrapping up, that’s no reason to stash away your sunscreen. It may be getting cooler, but the sun’s potentially harmful UVA and UVA rays remain in full effect. Apply sunscreen daily to protect your face and neck. You can also look for cosmetics with built-in SPF for an added layer of protection.
This essential item not only helps your makeup hold up throughout the day, but it also smoothes and minimizes your pores — creating a uniform canvas for your cosmetics. Apply at the start of your makeup routine after your moisturizer to create a fresh, healthy and “primed” look.
Speaking of minimizing pores, face masks are also great for shrinking stubborn pores and exfoliating your skin. From DIY combinations featuring household items to the ever-popular activated charcoal mask, there’s a mask for every price point. At XOMA, we offer deep cleansing and relaxing facials from our partners at Yon-Ka Paris. Hydrate your skin, remove dirt and oils and leave your face feeling silky-smooth and totally refreshed.
More than just the right products, you also need a skin care specialist to help you design your skin care goals for the season, refine your regimen and recommend professional skin care treatments that will prime your skin for perfection.
