Back To Smooth: End of Summer Skincare Tips Too Good Not To Share!

As the scorching days of summer gradually make way for the pleasant breeze of fall, it's time to bid adieu to sun-kissed beaches and welcome the cooler days. While summer is a season of fun and relaxation, it can take a toll on our skin with its heat, sun exposure, and excess sweating. It's important to note that your skincare is also seasonal, meaning, there are certain products, treatments, and routines that matter more for your skin during a particular season. As we prepare to transition into fall, your skincare all needs to switch it up to keep your skin refreshed, healthy, glowing, and ready to take on the new seasons. With the right end-of-summer skincare routine, you can effortlessly restore your skin's natural radiance and undo the damage caused during the hot months. In this blog, we will share some indispensable tips to help you transition from summer to fall while keeping your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

During the summer months, our skin is exposed to more sun, heat, and humidity, which can lead to increased water loss and dehydration. The sun, chlorine, and salty seawater can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and dehydrated. To restore moisture balance, switch to a richer, more nourishing moisturizer. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, which help lock in moisture and repair the skin's barrier. Applying a moisturizer right after showering will seal in the moisture effectively. As the weather transitions, it's also crucial to maintain hydration levels from within. Healthy, hydrated skin starts from the inside, out. Your body loses a ton of moisture through sweat and sun exposure. Focus on replenishing your body by drinking plenty of water and consuming foods rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. Fresh fruits and vegetables, along with foods high in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, walnuts, and flaxseeds, will promote skin regeneration and support a radiant complexion. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin well-hydrated from within.

Exfoliate to Reveal a Fresh Complexion

One essential step in any skincare routine is exfoliation. It is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, giving way to a brighter, smoother complexion. During summer, our skin often accumulates a layer of dead cells, sand granules, dried sweat, dirt, and sunscreen residue. Frequent exfoliation during the summer and end of summer months helps improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin, especially as you begin to transition to fall, and the tan lines begin to fade. The dead skin cells and debris that can accumulate on the surface of your skin creates a barrier that prevents your skincare products from penetrating deep into your skin. This barrier can lead to clogged pores, dullness, and uneven skin tone. Regular exfoliation can help combat these issues, leaving you with brighter, smoother, and healthier-looking skin. However, after prolonged sun exposure, your skin may be more sensitive, so opt for a gentle exfoliate like Depil Brazil's Grumari Body Exfoliant, for a deeper cleanse which will slough off dead skin cells without causing irritation to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. 

Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage

As summer days start to wind down, it's important not to let your guard down when it comes to sun protection. Even on cloudy days, harmful UV rays can still damage your skin. The sun emits harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, specifically UVA and UVB rays, that can damage your skin. UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of elasticity. On the other hand, UVB rays are responsible for sunburns and contribute to the development of skin cancer. It is essential to protect your skin from both types of rays to maintain a youthful complexion and reduce the risk of skin cancer. To keep your skin in check from the sun's intensity, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to all exposed areas of your skin, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating. Stick to shady areas where you can, and dress for the season. Opt for lightweight, tightly-woven clothing that covers your arms and legs. Don't forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes if you plan to be exposed to the sun for longer lengths of time.

Repair and Replenish with Antioxidants

After a long summer of exposure to various environmental aggressors, including the sun, your skin can benefit from repairing and replenishing. Antioxidants play a vital role in protecting and revitalizing your skin, restoring its natural balance and radiance. Antioxidants are powerful compounds that neutralize free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage your skin cells. Free radicals are often formed due to sun exposure, pollution, and other external factors. Combat this by incorporating antioxidant-rich products into your skincare routine through your products and especially your diet. Taking care of your body from within is just as important as what you apply topically. To support your skin from within, incorporate a variety of antioxidant-rich foods into your diet. Fruits and vegetables such as berries, spinach, kale, and citrus fruits are excellent sources of antioxidants. As for your products, look for skincare products that contain antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, or green tea extract. These ingredients can be found in serums, moisturizers, and face masks. 

Don't Forget Your Lips and Eyes

It is crucial not to overlook the delicate skin around your eyes and lips when it comes to skincare. These areas are often neglected and can easily show signs of damage and aging. The skin around your eyes is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your face, making it prone to dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. Prolonged sun exposure and other environmental factors can also lead to damage such as dark circles and puffiness. Similarly, your lips do not have oil glands like the rest of your skin, making them susceptible to dryness, chapping, and sunburn. Protecting these areas is essential to maintain their natural beauty. By protecting the fragile skin around your eyes and lips, you can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and prevent dark circles and under-eye puffiness. Invest in a good pair of sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection to shield and protect your eyes from the sun. Use a hydrating and nourishing eye cream that contains antioxidants and SPF. Apply it gently to the skin around your eyes to protect and moisturize the area. Regular use can improve the texture and appearance of the delicate skin. For your lips, choose a lip balm that offers SPF protection to shield your lips from the sun's harmful rays. Apply it throughout the day, especially before heading outdoors. Look for lip balms enriched with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter or coconut oil to keep your lips hydrated. 

Refresh Your Face And Body With Waxing 

The end-of-summer is the perfect time to give your skin a refreshing makeover through face and body waxing. Especially if you've been too busy over the summer to keep up with a consistent waxing regimen. Not only does waxing remove unwanted hair, but it also exfoliates the skin, leaving it smooth, radiant, and ready for the changing seasons ahead. Unlike other hair removal methods, waxing removes hair from the root, providing longer-lasting results. Additionally, waxing helps to exfoliate the skin by gently removing the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing for better absorption of moisturizers and other skincare products. When warm wax is applied to the skin and removed, it not only pulls out unwanted hair but also adheres to dead skin cells. As the wax is pulled away, the dead skin cells are lifted with it, resulting in a gentle exfoliation process. This exfoliation helps to unclog pores, reduce dullness, and promote the growth of fresh, healthy skin cells. By removing the hair follicle from the root, waxing leaves behind smoother skin compared to shaving or laser. This smoothness lasts for an extended period of time, allowing you to enjoy silky skin as the seasons transition. Waxing also helps stimulate cell turnover. This can result in a brighter complexion as new, fresher skin cells are revealed. Not to mention, when you wax, you also reduce the growth and appearance of ingrown hairs, redness, bumps, and stubble as the hair begins to regrow.
