Fall skin saviors to moisturize, heal and nourishing
By Carla Snuggs
Face it, after months of sun exposure all summer long, dry air conditioning and dipping into chlorine filled pools, we are left looking less like golden goddesses and a bit more like California raisins. In the summer, sun burns, heat rashes, eczema, and bumpy red mosquito bites invade our previously pristine complexions, but when the warm weather begins to fade, we do need some help to fade our skin troubles away. I have rounded up some post-summer skin saviors to help make the transition into fall, bearable, and beautiful.
Start with the new Earth Therapeutics Purifying Body Exfoliator.
This purifying body exfoliator is textured to gently scrub away the outer layers of dead skin to unclog pores-while an embedded infusion of medicinal charcoal enhances the cleansing process by drawing out impurities. Specially designed to massage the skin, this body exfoliator also stimulates circulation, so skin can breathe freely. To use, wet in warm water, apply your favorite cleanser, and gently massage the skin. The frequency of use really depends on the sensitivity of your skin, but we recommend exfoliating at least once a week. After using the sponge, hang to dry. Keep in a dry area.
Follow with the Earth Therapeutics Organic Body Butters, the non-greasy formula glides on effortlessly while hydrating, healing and protecting the skin. This triple body butter features three natural plant butters:
Cocoa butter, often used to soothe sunburns, rashes and insect bites; Mango butter, a natural source of vitamin A; and Shea butter, known to reduce skin inflammation and intense moisturizer. To use, massage liberally all over the body for smooth, supple and super soft skin. The body butter is certified organic, contains no parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, animal by-products or mineral oil. It is also not tested on animals. Available in lemon, mango and orange.
Now that it’s fall, switch back to a heavier cream. For all day hydration in a single application try the NEW Moisturizing Cream from AQUATION™.
The luxuriously rich formula penetrates deeply for intense hydration and instantly relieves dryness, softens skin and soothes dry skin itch and irritation. AQUATION’s™ advanced dual phase formula, enriched with ceramides and hyaluronic acid, delivers instant hydration and creates an invisible barrier to help prevent moisture loss while encapsulated actives penetrate deeply for 24 hours of hydration.
For an intense treatment try the Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Lighten FX Serious Brightening Solution , a high-performance serum that safely improves the look of uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, discoloration and brown spots.
The triple action formula features a new patented molecule that visibly brightens and helps prevents UV damage, along with Niacinamide to brighten, moisturize and smooth and Alpha Arbutin to help prevent future discoloration. After continued use, you’ll see a brighter, more even and luminous looking complexion.
