Get Ready for Fall – Follow a Skin Care Regimen That’s Right for Your Skin Type

 While you’re still enjoying the summer (and hopefully using sunscreen when you go outside), try to think ahead to how you can take better care of your skin come Fall. The FIRST thing you have to do is DETERMINE YOUR SKIN TYPE before determining your Fall skin care regimen.  Answer these 4 questions: When you take a look in the mirror, you check to:
Blot your nose or chin.   
See if you have a rash. 
Dab on pressed powder. 
Apply moisturizer. 
 3 A few minutes after you exfoliate, your skin:
feels as if your cheeks need moisturizer.  
feels as if it’s sunburned. 
feels clean and refreshed. 
feels as if it’s cracking. 
   2  You sample a new foundation. An hour later:
Your nose is shiny, but your cheeks are dry. 
Your entire face looks red.
Your whole face is shiny. 
Your face feels smooth  
 4 After using moisturizer:
your cheeks still feel dry.    
your face itches.  
your face feels greasy.
your face feels cool. 

If you answered mostly…..

A‘s:  You’re Combination skin.    B‘s:  You’re Sensitive.    C‘s:  You’re Oily.    D‘s:  You’re Dry.

Now that you’ve determined your skin type, follow the morning and nighttime rituals suited to your skin type for your Fall skin care regimen.

For Combination skin

Morning  Rub a small amount (size of a dime) of a glycolic acid-based cleanser into your palms with enough warm water to make suds. Massage into skin, focusing on oily areas. Rinse well with warm water. Pat dry. Smooth on a light moisturizer with an SPF of 15. Wait about 20 minutes before applying makeup.  We recommend PeterThomasRoth 3% GLYCOLIC SOLUTIONS CLEANSER and GLYCOLIC ACID 10% MOISTURIZER.

Nighttime  Splash face a few times with lukewarm water to soften skin so dirt and oil can be easily removed. Repeat morning cleansing ritual, then apply a richer moisturizer to dry areas. A good choice would be Nutriganics Smoothing Night Cream available from The Body Shop. 


For Sensitive skin                                           

Morning  You don’t have to use cleanser and moisturizer twice a day. Instead, dampen a washcloth that’s been washed in a fragrance-free detergent with cool water. Place the washcloth over your face for 2 minutes. Pat dry. Apply makeup.

We recommend MyChelle Dermaceuticals Honeydew Cleanser Unscented 2.1 oz bottle – Sensitive Skin as the ideal cleanser for sensitive skin. Honeydew cleanser is a creamy gentle cleanser with honey enzymes to dissolve and soften dead skin cells, and chlorophyll and algae to provide nutrients and purify pores while cleansing. Great for anyone who loves creamy cleansers. A good moisturizer for sensitive skin is Ole Henriksen’s nurture me moisturizing crme.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals

Nighttime  Gently wash face with soap-free cleanser. Rinse with lukewarm water. Pat dry. Apply a moisturizer that contains Retinol, a replenishing ingredient that reduces redness and irritation.  Try philosophy’s Help Me Retinol Night Treatment. With its patented Microsponge Technology, Help Me is the winner of Allure magazine’s editor’s choice for best of beauty for best anti-aging treatment. retinol night treatment,help me

   Splash your face with lukewarm water, then massage a soapless cleanser into skin. An excellent cleanser is  
NeoStrata Facial Cleanser
. It’s a soap-free, hypoallergenic facial cleanser gently exfoliates without drying the skin. It contains Gluconolactone (Polyhydroxy Acid – PHA), which provides anti-aging benefits. Rinse well. Dry face with a towel, leaving skin damp. Immediately apply a moisturizer. We suggest trying NeoStrata Bionic Face Cream PHA 12  (Click product name to get details), which has anti-aging and line-diminishing benefits.  This special moisturizing cream contains Polyhydroxy Acids designed to moisturize the skin while visibly reducing lines, wrinkles and other signs of photoaging.  Always wait a few minutes before applying makeup to let skin absorb the moisturizer.

  Repeat morning cleansing ritual. Moisturizers containing glycolic or alpha-hydroxy acid, which exfoliate dead skin cells, enabling the product to penetrate into skin more effectively, are often recommended. You can follow the above NeoStrata skin care program and use it again at night. We also highly recommend another cream specifically formulated for use at night–
NeoStrata Bio-Hydrating Cream PHA 15
  (Click product name to get details). This night cream deeply hydrates the skin at night when the skin is most receptive.  It is a highly emollient cream with potent Polyhydroxy Acids dedicated to reducing the visible signs of aging while providing long-lasting hydration.

  Splash your face with warm water. Mix a cleanser with some water in your palms, and massage into skin. Begin with soap-free
Exuviance Clarifying Cleanser Duo

(Click product name to get details) to wash away impurities, makeup and oil without disrupting your skin’s delicate pH balance. Then, prime skin with Exuviance Matte Perfection to instantly erase any unwanted shine and fight the overproduction of oil with Mandelic Acid. Next, apply Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid SPF 35.  This product helps oily skin find its balance while reducing the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles. This lightweight day fluid absorbs quickly into the skin and contains an innovative patented ingredient, NeoGlucosamine®.      

In the evening, Exuviance Night Renewal Hydragel  (Click product name to get details) helps controls oil and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Morning and evening, apply Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex  (Click product name to get details) to hydrate, smooth and brighten the eye area, while discouraging signs of aging. Wait 5 minutes before applying makeup.

Nighttime   Most people with oily skin want to or think they should wash their face more than twice a day, when in fact washing your face frequently increases oil production.  So you don’t have to wash your skin at night. If you do wash, repeat the morning cleansing routine and apply an oil-free moisturizer before going to bed.  Your Fall skin care regimen is complete!
