Fall Into Beautiful Skin
As the season changes, so does our skin, and therefore our skincare routine should follow. So, as summer turns in to fall, let’s take a look at the most common fall skin changes and how to help create a seamless seasonal skin transition.
SKIN CHANGE: SUN DAMAGE
Sun exposure is the number one cause of skin aging. And the majority of that exposure occurs within the summer months. Unprotected sun exposure causes damage to the skin’s epidermis (upper) and dermis (lower) layers, resulting in an increase in unwanted pigmentation on the skin.
Solution: Speed Up Cell Turnover
Now that summer is fading, do the same for your sunspots with a skincare regimen designed to help speed up the declining rate of skin’s cell turnover. Look for products with all-natural ingredients that are clinically proven to reduce the appearance of spots that contribute to an uneven complexion.
Product: Cell Revive Brightening Serum
Even out skin tone naturally, without harsh chemicals. Cell Revive Brightening Serum’s Tri-Bright technology works to lighten and brighten skin while aiding in the reduction of hyperpigmentation, with a noticeable improvement in as little as 14 days.*
SKIN CHANGE: DRY SKIN
The weather change, combined with hormonal changes as we age, reduce oil and sweat gland production, resulting in less natural oils to help lubricate skin. This process causes skin to appear (and feel) dry and dehydrated, leading to a rough, “crepey” appearance.
Solution: Multiple Hydration Approach
Find a skincare regimen that hydrates in multiple ways – by attracting water, binding the hydration to the skin and holding it in. Single function moisturizers that simply lay moisture on top of the skin won’t fix the problem. Dry, dehydrated skin needs to be comprehensively hydrated, with all natural ingredients that nourish the skin, while attracting, binding and sealing in moisture where it can do the most good.
Product: Cell Renew Hydro-Plus Overnight Moisturizer
Featuring our proprietary StemCore-3 technology, this moisturizer restores skin’s vital hydration with ingredients shown to increase skin hydration by 15% in just 4 hours.* Time-release hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps skin’s appearance with visible results upon waking.
SKIN CHANGE: SENSITIVE SKIN
As the air becomes dryer, skin loses its ability to retain water, which evaporates, leading to dryness and sensitivity. Surface lipids, in smaller quantities, no longer form a homogeneous barrier. And because the skin barrier no longer performs its function as effectively, it allows external aggressors and irritants (pollution, allergen particles, etc.) to penetrate deeper into the skin. Skin then becomes more vulnerable and reactive, and is more rapidly and strongly irritated.
Solution: Restore Skin’s Barrier
Through proper hydration and pH balance, the skin’s natural barrier can be restored, increasing skin resiliency and reducing skin sensitivity. Use products rich in ingredients and emollients that support the health of your skin and work to improve skin’s barrier function, including antioxidants to help protect skin from external aggressors.
Product: Cell Renew EnviroExpose Repair and Restore Crème
Clinically proven ingredients reduce skin inflammation by 31%.* This formula features a unique blend of cell nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. It moisturizes and protects skin against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors, before and/or after exposure.
SKIN CHANGE: UNEVEN TEXTURE
As the air outside cools, it becomes dryer with a lower humidity factor. Less moisture in the air causes skin dryness and depletion of hydration. Our natural sebum oil cannot keep up with the hydration demands of the dryer climate. This can lead skin to have a more coarse texture.
Solution: Gently Exfoliate
In order to achieve smooth skin, you need to get rid of the dead, flaky skin on the surface. Regular exfoliation speeds up the cell turnover process, allows the body to produce more moisture, plumps skin and helps build collagen and elastin production.
Product: Cell Reboot Ageless Mask
Provides immediate lifting and tightening, with visible results after just one use.* Squalane, carrot seed, meadowfoam seed and argan oils provide regenerative support and restructuring for smoother skin and optimal cellular function.
SKIN CHANGE: LESS SWEATING
This seems like a no-brainer, but as the seasons move from summer to fall, the weather cools and our bodies no longer need to self-regulate their temperature through sweating. Though sweating is an important function for our body to maintain its proper functions, excessive sweating can lead to breakouts, irritation, and dry skin.
Solution: Cleansing and Rehydrating Skin
Now that your sweating is subsiding, its time to cleanse skin from bacteria and toxins in a gentle way, restoring skin’s pH balance and re-hydrating environmentally damaged summer skin. Look for a cleanser that has anti-inflammatory ingredients such as chamomile and gentle hydrators that are all-natural.
Product: Cell Refresh Hydrating Cleanser
This refreshing, gentle cleanser is acidic-free and pH balanced for a smoothing clean feel. Aloe Vera, Sodium Lactylate and Panthenol complex hydrate and soothe skin offering anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant support. Extracts of Chamomile, Comfrey and Eucalyptus restore a smooth texture and tone.
