Adjusting your fall/winter skincare own brand eyelashes. (http://www.covergirllashes.com/ – wholesale lash vendors)
(I really wanted to write about this topic before I wrote about own brand eyelashes, because even the most beautiful fall makeup can look bad on dry, un-exfoliated skin. The next time I write, it will be full of fun fall makeup tips and great new products, but if your skin is in bad shape, it ain’t gonna matter what ya do with your makeup, so read up!)
The coming of fall is unmistakably in the air. With its wonderful crispness, beautiful foliage, and cozy evenings by the fire, it is hard not to find a million and one things to love about this season. However, as the air dries out, the winds pick up, and the sun begins to set earlier, its important to adjust your skin care routine accordingly.
When the air loses its summer humidity, the epidermis, or top layer of your skin is affected. It begins to lose water/moisture. In addition to that, your home’s central heat system, space heaters, fireplaces, and so on, also have a drying effect on your skin. To keep your skin healthy and beautiful, its important to make adjustments to your skincare routine to counteract any negative effect the changing environmental factors have on it.
One of the easiest, most affordable, and healthiest remedies to the dry air found inside is to add a humidifier where you spend most of your time. I use one in me bedroom when I sleep, and I can’t tell you how much it helps.
For outside elements, some of the most tried and true solutions still work the best. Whether you use prescription skincare products, products from your dermatologist, or products from the drugstore, they all will have to meet some of the same needs. Protect your face during the day, replenish and repair while you sleep, and exfoliate dead skin cells. I will be talking about the last two mentioned, because there really are too many wonderful daytime moisturizers with SPF to name. I will say though, that if you are on a budget for your daytime moisturizer, head straight for Oil of Olay’s Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion, available in SPF 15 and 50. Ask any dermatologist you see about that line, and they will say that Olay’s Regenerist line is easily the best product for the value on the market.
Exfoliate! The purpose of facial skin exfoliation is to remove the dull layer of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This helps to reduce dryness and flakiness, and also his promotes skin cell turn over. There are many ways to exfoliate your skin depending on what it reacts to best.
Exfoliate your skin once a week to get rid of dead or flaking skin.
My recommendations for weekly exfoliators:
Philosophy’s The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, or Clinique’s Exfoliating Scrub. I have tried both of these products and absolutely love them for once a week exfoliations. There are tons to choose from, but I really think both of these products are two of the best, no-fail products on the market.
If your skin is sensitive like mine is, you may want to try lighter exfoliations, a few times a week.
Another option (this is what I swear by for my skin): Clinique’s 7 Day Scrub Cream. It is designed to be gentle enough to use every day, 100% fragrance free, and allergy tested. I use it about 3 days a week, focusing on the drier spots on my face. This is with out a doubt one of my personal top 5 must-have skincare products.
(**Clinique’s 7 Day Scrub is also what I recommend to all of my brides to start using a couple weeks before their big day because it is gentle enough to never cause any kind of breakout, over-drying, etc.)
One other product that I can personally recommend is Oil of Olay’s Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. If you have always wanted to buy a Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System, but haven’t been able to swallow the near $200 price tag, the Pro-X is a great way to go. With two different speeds, I love it, and I also love the exfoliation cream scrub that it comes with. Just another option for ya all!
Remember, the skin on your face is the same skin you get pedicures on! Treat it kindly and exfoliate gently, and it will be very happy. If you haven’t exfoliated much before, start on the safe side, and watch your skin’s reaction. It will tell you what type of exfoliation works best for you.
Moisturize!! Exfoliating only works so well if not followed up by a fabulous moisturizer. Although there is no one rule or product adjustment that works for everyone, switching to a heavier, richer moisturizer in the fall and winter months is pretty much as close as we can get. Although some of us will still need to switch our daytime moisturizers over the fall and winter months to heavier, more hydrating products, investing in a fabulous night cream may allow you to continue using the same daytime cream.
(**One quick but important note about your daytime moisturizer: The most important thing is to continue using one with an SPF in it (for most of us, the lowest number we should go to for our daytime moisturizer is SPF 15.)
As the seasons change, spoil your face a bit by making sure your nighttime routine includes a rich, hydrating, high-quality product. While you sleep is the PERFECT time to pamper and re-hydrate your clean, own brand eyelashes -free skin.
Our generation is really lucky that we have so many high-quality products to choose from at ALL price points. I’m sure many of you have your go-to products that you love, and aren’t looking to change those anytime soon. However if you haven’t found the right products yet, I can most certainly make some wonderful recommendations.
For Dry to Very Dry Skin: First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream is without a doubt a miracle product. If you don’t need this intense of a cream yet, keep it in mind for ski season… it will be your skin’s savior!
For Normal to Dry Skin: Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening Cream
For Normal/Oily or Oily Skin: Korres Yogurt Cream.
For Combination or Oily Skin (works great for Normal skin in the summer!): Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.
On a budget? Your go-to line is without a doubt Oil of Olay’s Regenerist. Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream for nighttime, and Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion with SPF 15 (also comes in SPF 50) for daytime are two amazing products to try.
For lips: Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I have one next to my bed, one in my car, and one in my own brand eyelashes bag…yes, I’m slightly obsessed. At Sephora, you can find this product in the little sample sized bins near where you wait in line.
A few more personal ultra-hydrating favorites:
Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Moisturizing Stick. This product is a hydrating, multipurpose wonder. You will fall in love at first use.
For hair/scalp: Moroccan Oil’s The Original Moroccan Oil Treatment. I LOVE this product! And, for guys who experience a dry or flaking scalp during the drier months, Moroccan Oil’s Dry-No-More Scalp Treatment is exactly what you are looking for.
For body: I know you are going to read Jergen’s Skin Crème and think, is she crazy? Jergen’s has tons of different moisturizers and names for them. The one that I use every day and am so happy that I found is Jergen’s Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer. Don’t try any other Jergen’s lotion but the Shea Butter one. It is the best budget body moisturizer EVER!
(Don’t laugh at this one, its true!) Silly, but they work…Kleenex Tissues with Moisture Lotion. One of the least used but best ways to not have a bright red nose because of allergies or colds.
One fun idea that I love and do all the time…when you are cooking, don’t wash the olive oil off your hands, rub it in!
All of the skincare lines mentioned in this post provide wonderful, high-quality products that I personally love and recommend. Still, it is hard to know what will work best for your face/skin without being able to try the actual product first.
My advice? ASK FOR SAMPLES! Sometimes we forget that pretty much every beauty counter and brand website, has tons and tons of sample sizes of their products for us to try. Take advantage of them! From now on, every time you go to the mall, make it a point of asking for two or three samples of products you are curious about or would like to try. It will get you in the habit of knowing that you can test out products before committing to a big purchase.
If any of you have other tried-and-true own brand eyelashes that you swear by, please list them in the comment section so others can try them out!
