Staying Beautiful in this Season:
I don't know about you but I love this season with it's brightly colored leaves of yellows and reds, orange pumpkins and strange looking gourds with ghoulish bumps. Halloween is coming and isn't it fun to see the houses as they begin to transform into being scary haunted and playfully fun. Aren't the decorations exciting and delightful? Soon we'll be seeing children dressed as super hero's princesses ghosts and goblins and hearing their collective chorus of "Trick or Treat"
You're probably wondering what this has to do with skin care? Good question! Have you noticed with this season the air is crisp and dry? Yep it is and this crisp dry weather tends to cause your skin to feel a little or a lot like those beautiful crispy leaves that crunch under foot. So it's time for you to take action and make a few adjustments in your home care routine otherwise you may see your skin doing some ghoulish transformation of it's own.
Staying beautiful this Autumn...Tricks and Treats...
It's time to exfoliate the build up of summer sun drenched skin. Exfoliating will smooth the surface of your skin and allow your serum gel and moisturizer to penetrate and nourish your skin more effectively.
Recommendations: Essensa's Scrubbing Gel or Lemon Enzyme Exfoliant (depending on your skin type use every other day to daily). Even using a wash cloth or exfoliating gloves if you don't normally use them will help.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! Make sure you're drinking plenty of spring or filtered water and staying away from the drying effects of caffeine and alcohol both are very dehydrating.
Recommendations: Use Essensa's Rose Hydrating Mask a few times a week. Or use daily after washing and toning as a leave on hydration layer to add extra moisture before applying your cream. For an extra hydration boost incorporate Essensa's Hydrating Skin Balancer to your night time routine for the next few weeks.
Moisturize! This is the time of year to change up your moisturizer or to at least use more of what you are using. It's important to seal in the moisture and protect your skin from the dry air.
Recommendations: Essensa's Vitacreams are filled with the bounty of earths harvest and will give you the extra vitamins and minerals your skin needs at this time. Try Peach Tomato Vitacream rich in peach, tomato and active organic plant extracts to fight free radicals that provides critical care to activate skin function, lock in skin’s natural moisture and balance oil glands for a smooth, supple skin.
