My Must-Haves for End of Summer Skin
As the Summer is coming to a close and we’re all preparing for the next season, Halloween, I thought it might be nice to share a few of my skincare faves for this time of year.
As an aesthetician, something I find SO important is understanding when to change up my skincare routine to fit my needs. The end of summer means that we are all a little (or a lot) sun-kissed, we may be experiencing some congestion from the weeks of thick, water-resistant sun protection, and more than likely our skin needs a big antioxidant-moisture-exfoliation cocktail to combat the pools, nights out, and BBQs. Or maybe it’s just me?
Whether you had a busy summer or not, most everyone experiences a little hiccup in their radiance as the seasons change. Which is why I decided to switch up my routine a few weeks ago and have been absolutely loving my skin since. These products are all rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and hydration which is exactly what my skin has needed as we move into Autumn.
If you know me, you know I’m a believer in oil cleansing. This Éminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil is no exception. This cleanser is lightweight, effective, and packed with nutrients my skin needs. Stone Crop is highly moisturizing and balancing, and great for reducing redness. The Microgreens Complex is a mix of fabulous detoxifiers that help to combat environmental stressors too! Love, love, love.
Too many people are intimidated by oil cleansing, thinking that it will leave them feeling greasy and congested. The truth is, the language of the skin is lipidic. Oil is the single best way to communicate your goals with your skin, by allowing active ingredients to penetrate deeper and get to work faster.
If I had to pick one manual exfoliant to use for the rest of my life, this’d be it. Another Éminence Organics favorite, this exfoliating cleanser is out of this world. The formula is rich in antioxidants from red currant, elderflower, and magnolia, with the red currant giving an extra boost of Vitamin C along the way. Olive seed is a gentle exfoliant while additional acid complexes are at work to do some serious anti-aging action.
I’m not going to lie, I generally prefer enzymatic and natural chemical exfoliants to manual. I usually find manual exfoliators grainy, messy, and hard to remove. This product is none of those things. This cleanser is rich, gentle, and removes easily. My skin is left exfoliated, plump, & hydrated and I know the antioxidants are doing serious work on my summer skin. If you’ve ever struggled with removing a days’ worth of sunscreen, this product will be your new best friend.
See that shiny, pinkish gel on my face? That is something we in the biz call liquid gold. It’s also commonly referred to as the Éminence Organics Pink Grapefruit Vitality Masque. This luscious masque is packed with vitamin C and the gentle acids in the grapefruit help drive the vitamin C deeper into the skin. Honey is added to calm and nourish and I have to say that this formulation smells and feels like a fresh juice cleanse for my face.
Another Éminence Organics powerhouse, this Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum contains salicylic and hyaluronic acid, leaving me hydrated, my pores refined, and my complexion smooth.
………Last but not least…
There’s one product I will never ever ever give up, and that is my essential oil medicinal moisturizer. A custom blend of skin-loving carriers combined with therapeutic essential oils to target not only my skin concerns but also my needs internally. This potion is how I end every skincare regimen.
