The summer is the most beautiful season for many of us, the months when we can spend more time outside, sunbathing on the beach and enjoying the great weather. While the time spent in fresh air is surely good for our health, the combination of wind, sun and water is definitely harsh on our skin, so when those beautiful days are over and fall comes, it is the best time to start restoring our skin’s beauty. Here are some tips on how you can refresh your skin, how you can pamper and nourish it to give it back its spectacular, healthy glow.
Go to a Salon and Get Pampered by Professionals
A complete facial treatment that involves deep cleansing, peeling the application of nourishing masks, creams as well as a soothing massage that relaxes the muscles of the face and the neck is a great start for restoring your skin’s beauty. To minimize the appearance of aging brown spots, it may even include a hyperpigmentation treatment. The peeling process is essential for stimulating the blood flow in the skin as well as for the removal of the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Peeled skin becomes more receptive to nutrients, that’s why the exfoliation phase is always followed by the application of creams and masks to nourish and hydrate the skin. These professional creams and masks contain fast-absorbing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, allantoin or aloe vera extract.
Continue the Process at Home
The facial treatment might introduce nourishment into the deeper layers of your skin and it might remove the dead cells from the surface of the skin that caused its dull appearance, but the process needs to continue at home as well. Start using a mild cleanser on your face, your neck and your cleavage area twice a day, in the morning and in the evening and continue with the application of an emollient day cream that also contains sunscreen. Choose a rich and nourishing nigh cream as well – the night is when your skin regenerates and the more help it gets with the process, the faster it will recover to its original beauty.
You can also start using your own exfoliator at home. Pick a gentle product with tiny scrubbing beads and fruit enzymes for efficient cleansing and more nourishment.
Your skin regimen should include more thorough cleansing at the end of each day when you wear make-up – going to bed with foundation, eyeshadow and lip gloss or lipstick or even with residues of décor cosmetics on your skin is among the worst mistakes that you can make, a mistake that can ruin the positive results of your skin restoration efforts for days.
Nourish Your Skin from the Inside
There are many lifestyle changes that you could implement to restore the beauty of your skin. Cleaning up your diet by removing oil-fried dishes, semi-prepared meals as well as excessive amounts of sugar, adding more fresh fruits and vegetables and replacing coffee and alcoholic beverages with filtered water, fruit juices and herbal tea will have almost instant beneficial effects on your skin, making it softer, restoring its elasticity and its beauty.
