4 Ways to Take Your Beauty Routine from Summer to Fall

The change of season from summer to fall does affect the look and feel of skin. Skin that has been exposed to summer sun may feel drier and more sensitive as cell turnover slows, inviting dullness and discoloration.  The colder air may add to skin losing moisture more easily. Some tips to help skin freshen and look healthy at this time include:

1. Use a peel pad with Glycolic Acid over the skin at least every other day to boost cell turnover.

I recommend JUVA Glycolic pads to keep skin fresh and bright. These pads provide a mild chemical exfoliation to normalize the skin’s barrier, prevent pimples, hold water and avoid skin insults.   Glycolic pads are used after washing the face and can be used as a toner in the morning or night. They are available in two strengths - 5% for most individuals and 10% if stronger peeling is needed.

2. Boost skin hydration with a hydrating serum.

Hands down nothing gives the skin a drink of water better than Neocutis Hyalis!  Apply Hyalis twice a day after your face wash and toner and before a moisturizer.

3. Seek out potent antioxidants to brighten the skin.

Apply JUVA C-Serum every other night to fight pigment build up without causing irritation. This serum is concentrated in vitamin C with Green Tea and Bisabolol (a derivative of chamomile) to help tame inflammation.

4. Fend off wrinkles with Retinol, an essential vitamin A for the skin.

JUVA Retinol Plus Smoothing Serum is vital for anti-aging benefits by providing support for collagen production. Vitamin A is key to reduce the appearance of age spots, pore size and enhance the turnover rate of skin. The Retinol Smoothing Serum also contains broad antioxidant benefits of Green Tea Polyphenols that work synergistically to build up the skin matrix and protect skin from the appearance of UV damage.  At JUVA we customize the serum in three strengths 2X, 5X and 10X to match all skin types.
