4 Easy Ways to Prep your Skin for Cooler Weather

We may not have had the best summer weather but we did luck out and get an “Indian Summer” in the early fall days.  As the nights are drawing in and the days are getting cooler, it’s that time of year when we need to start to transition our skincare routine from one season to the next. If you don’t look after your skin you could find it looking dry, dull and your makeup not sitting as well as you’d like. In just a 4 easy steps you can help protect your skin and prepare for the seasonal changes to come.

1. Add in an Extra Hit of Hydration 
We’re all about hydration at any point in the year but as the temperatures drop and the furnace gets turned up, our skin can become fragile and parched. If you’ve been skipping a moisturizer during the summer months now is the time to reintroduce it. If you’ve been using a light weight formula now is the time to switch to a richer texture for extra moisture.
A great universal cream – meaning it’s good for all skins types and has extra moisture is –  Payot Hydra 24 Cream.
2. Use a Deliciously Rich Smoothing Cleanser
A good fall and winter cleanser is one that will remove all dirt, grime, and makeup but won’t strip the skin of natural oils. There’s nothing quite like a great cleansing routine. Invest in a good cleanser and your complexion will thank you when the cold really starts to set in.
We recommend Payot Huile Fondante Demaquillante – a milky oil cleanser with avocado oil that leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, and never greasy.
3. Treat your Skin to a Night Time Boost 
Night creams tend to contain high levels of active ingredients, which really get to work as you sleep. UV rays can break down some ingredients during the day, so night time is a perfect opportunity to put your skin to work. During the day your skin is busy protecting itself and at night cells focus on repairing. In the winter months, it’s  important to make sure you nourish the skin and to help combat potential aging and dryness.
Adding a serum under your regular night cream can do wonders. Molecules in facial serums are micro fine and easily seep into the skin creating exceptional visible results. Be sure to lock a good hydrating serum in with a repairing night cream and your skin will be glowing all winter long.

4. Embrace a Bi-Weekly Face Mask 
As a teen using a face mask was all about the little pampering “me time”, but you should be using a mask at any stage of your life. It’s all about giving your skin what it’s craving and treating it to an intense boost bi-weekly. Face masks are great at drawing out impurities and rebalancing skin as well as injecting so much needed moisture. Masks will keep your skin looking radiant all winter. Taking 10 minutes for yourself to boost your skin and it will really make all the difference.
