Five ways to do so:
- Change Your Moisturizer
With fall’s arrival you should change to a heavier day and nighttime moisturizer. Good autumn moisturizers will contain more emollient and/or hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid holds up to 10,000X (10,000X!!) its weight in moisture, and as such it is the perfect product to keep your skin hydrated as the cooler, drier climate arrives. We recommend Crem 28 and Yonka’s Hydra #1 to our Denver skin care clients.
- Utilize Serums
Adding serums to your skin care regime will give your skin an added boost of nutrients, minerals, vitamins and oils that are more difficult to both obtain and keep in your skin during the cooler, less sunny months. Serums are used by themselves or they can be added directly to your moisturizer. Our Denver skin care clients use Yonka Serum Vital added to Yonka’s Hydra #1.
- Use a Hydrating Masque Once a Week
Utilizing a hydrating masque one time per week will give that extra needed boost of hydration to your face and skin during the drier months. We highly recommend Masque #1 by Yonka. Masque #1 by Yonka contains imperata cylindrica. Imperata cylindrica helps prevent unnecessary evaporation of water, and it does the same for your skin. The longer you keep the masque on the more benefits you will receive!
- Use a Humidifier
The harsh effects Colorado’s dry weather can have on skin cannot be understated. Dry weather such as ours can cause premature aging and cause unhealthy looking skin. Protecting your skin with the appropriate products and a good skin care regime is critical. An easy way to support these efforts is to have a humidifier in your room when sleeping and in areas of your house where you spend the majority of your time.
- Drinks Lots of Water
Your skin is a great indicator of what is going on inside your body. Dehydration shows itself very clearly on the face and skin – and not at all in a pretty way. To avoid the short and long term side effects of premature aging and unhealthy skin make sure you drink at least 64 ounces of water, or more, everyday.
