4 Fall Skin Care Ingredients You Can’t Live Without

fallskincare

When the seasons change, so does your skin. Now that October is in full swing, it’s time to repair your skin from last summer’s sun damage, and to address new skin issues that are associated with seasonal change.

By selecting the right skin care ingredients this fall, you can successfully manage uneven, dehydrated and lackluster skin that’s often characteristic of the cooler autumn months.

Below are 4 autumn-themed product ingredients that address all these issues (and more) to give you a flawless fall complexion:

1. PUMPKINS

Like clockwork every fall, the pumpkin obsession begins – from pumpkin lattes to pumpkin pies, everyone wants a piece of this seasonal treat. But what if we told you that pumpkins can do much more than tantalize your taste buds? Pumpkins are rich in enzymes, beta-carotene, amino acids and antioxidants which can do wonderful things for your skin.

For pumpkin-perfect moisture, Best Health Magazine recommends our Limited Edition Pumpkin Latte Hydration Masque – “…soothe, nourish and, as [the] name implies, super-moisturize.” The pumpkin puree of nutrient-rich goodness in this masque is especially beneficial during the dry fall months when there’s less humidity and moisture in the air.

2. YAMS

Why not take the beauty benefits of pumpkin to the next level by adding yams to the mix? Yams have been used in Asian traditional medicine centuries due to their tremendous healing powers. This root vegetable contain allantoin, a cell proliferate that helps the healing process when applied topically on ulcers, boils and other skin conditions (StyleCraze.com).

For the perfect fall pairing of ingredients, Examiner recommends our Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel 5%. They love it so much that they’ve named it their favorite peel in their Best in Beauty Awards 2015:

As the perfect addition to any skin care regimen, this face peel does many great things for the skin. In fact, it can correct various skin issues such as depigmentation and sun damage. And whether you suffer from acne or have once suffered from acne, you can also benefit from using this organic face peel.” – Sarah Afshar, Pittsburgh Beauty Examiner (beauty blogger and former makeup artist and beauty advisor).

3. LICORICE ROOT

Fall is the perfect time to correct any sun damage that occurred during the summer months. Licorice root, which is found in our Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel, helps brighten the appearance of uneven or sun damaged skin for a more youthful appearance. This results-oriented peel uses licorice root and our Natural Hydroquinone Alternative to brighten the appearance of dark spots, while lactic and mandelic acids gently exfoliate dead skin cells. We recommend following this treatment (and all exfoliating treatments) with an SPF product like our Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 30.

4. CRANBERRIES

In addition to adding bursts of flavor to food, this tiny berry adds impressive beauty benefits when used as a skin care ingredient. Cranberries are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They’re also rich in phytochemicals with potent anti-inflammatory properties that are extremely effective in fighting the inflammation caused by problem skin (Livestrong). Take advantage of the beauty benefits of cranberries with our Limited Edition Cranberry Pomegranate Masque.

Beard Care: Shaving Tips & Tricks

beard careMen have skin care needs too, so in honor of the bearded (and clean shaven) men out there, we’re sharing a few of our quick and easy tips on how to get that perfect shave.

For the clean shaven man

The Shave Prep:  

The key to a good shave is preventing those inflamed, post-shave bumps. One thing that men can do to avoid ingrown hairs and raised bumps is proper exfoliation. “Deflake with an exfoliating facial scrub. It will help you get a closer shave while reducing ingrown hairs,” suggests Men’s Health Magazine.

Prior to shaving, we suggest our Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser (named Best Facial Exfoliator for Men by Harper’s Bazaar). This cleanser and exfoliant combo will help wash and buff away dead skin and unclog pores.

The Shave:
Shaving creams don’t necessarily make a good shave. Some shaving creams are filled with unnecessary perfumes and foaming agents which can irritate the skin. Instead, we suggest opting for a cream-based cleanser like our Lemon Cleanser and our Calm Skin Chamomile Cleanser which are both free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, synthetic dyes and petrochemicals. These cleansers have a pleasant herbal scent and contain antioxidant-rich ingredients that help hydrate and nourish the skin while softening the pre-shave stubble.

The After-Shave:
Serums are light-weight in consistency but high in concentrated nutrients so they are the perfect option to help calm, hydrate and protect the look of skin post-shave. Our Calendula Oil and Couperose-C Serum are a couple of great options. Couperose-C Serum contains peppermint which provides a soothing and cooling sensation to freshly shaved skin while our Calendula Oil is loaded with alpha and beta carotenoids that enhance your skin’s natural healing systems.

For men that are prone to ingrown hairs – our Facial Recovery Oil is another great after-shave treatment as it contains the anti-bacterial qualities of tea tree.

For the bearded man:
Beards are back, and we know a good beard when we see one. Keeping a beard sleek and well-groomed can sometimes involve just as much maintenance as shaving every day. When it comes to a dapper looking beard, any type of conditioning care would be beneficial for softening and smoothing coarse facial hair as well as the skin underneath.

We suggest adding a few drops of our Facial Recovery Oil in the palm and then gently smoothing over the beard for a hydrated and shiny finish.

Another one of our product picks is our Apricot Body Oil. A key ingredient in this hydrating solution is jojoba oil which mimics the activity of your body’s natural oils and contains almost all of the vitamins and minerals essential for healthy skin and hair (Wellness Today).  And with the honeyed scent of apricot, this is a great option for men who aren’t afraid to show off their “sweeter” side.

The SPF Factor
Beard or no beard, SPF protection is a must every day, especially after a shave when exfoliated skin tends to be more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays. If you’re looking for an SPF moisturizer with a fresh, masculine-friendly scent, we suggest our Tomato Day Cream – SPF 16 or for a higher protection factor, our Bright Skin Moisturizer with SPF 30.
