Capture Your Autumn Glow!
Five Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin!
Fall is in full effect…and we’re ready to adjust our skincare regimen to adapt to the cooler weather. We checked in with Dr. Amy Ross, MONAT Scientific Board Member, and came away five tips for glowing skin!
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Start your week with a full-body exfoliating session. Dr. Ross explains that gently exfoliating the skin once per week helps remove dead skin cells and leaves your skin smooth and renewed. Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they both exfoliate and hydrate.
MONAT Berry Refined Scrub™ is an easy-to-use option for anyone who wants to buff away dull skin and reveal their natural glow!
Use Creams & Oils
As the air becomes drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer, Dr. Ross says. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they both reduce water loss from the outer layer of the skin and provide hydration to the inner layer of the skin at the same time.
If you’re opting for oil, REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive is made of Abyssinian oil combined with a blend of 13 unique ingredients and designed to be used before moisturizing. The result? Instant hydration, protection, and improved texture and tone.
Protect Against Still-intense UV Rays
Sun protection shouldn’t end just because the temperature is dropping. More than 90 percent of all skin cancers are associated with the sun, which emits cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) radiation all year. Use of a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 25 or higher every day is a must!
Sun Veil™ Daily Mineral Protection SPF 30 is the latest addition to the MONAT skincare line—and is your new go-to product for UV protection! Sun Veil™ is a lightweight, creamy blend of mineral-rich zinc oxide, hyaluronic acid, botanicals, and antioxidants, and offers an extra veil of protection from the sun’s rays.
Protect Your Lips
Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips, Dr. Ross advises. Gently exfoliate your lips and apply a moisturizing lip balm that’s petroleum free and contains sunscreen with an SPF 20 or more
Don’t Forget Your Knees, Elbows, Hands, and Feet!
Your knees, elbows, hands, and feet always are in need of some TLC. Dr. Ross recommends gently exfoliating these areas with rich, creamy moisturizers. Adding a nightly cuticle cream can also help your hands get a jump on cooler weather!
Now you’re ready to face the fall with glowing your skin!
