Did Someone Say Fall? We've curated a list of our favorite products, tips, and tricks to extend your glow beyond Summer!
Beaches empty and tans fade, but do they have to? We’ve decided to take it to our Pseudo Labs team and reveal the products, tips, and tricks that help leave a lasting glow even when the summer ends. This transition of the weather really does have an effect on our skin! Making easy swaps like changing to a heavy moisturizer from a lightweight one will help make the transition a little easier on you. Just because the weather cools, doesn’t mean you have to lose your glow or your freckles.
Let’s start with that golden tan
The St. Tropez Gradual Tan Watermelon Infusion Everyday Moisture Miracle Body Lotion is an easy and amazing way to enhance your glow, extending that tan for just a bit longer. Our tip is to mix with lotion for easier application. The key to locking in that moisture is the hyaluronic acid as a main ingredient.
Cooler weather doesn’t mean you should ditch the SPF!
Our advice, always use SPF! Always. You need to take care of the gorgeous skin of yours and make sure that you are protecting it properly, regardless of whether or not you think you need it. Trust us, you need it. And the perfect way to keep up with that dewy glow the summer breathes into your skin is Supergoop’s Glow Oil. Not only does it have an SPF of 50, but it is an all-over body oil that is guaranteed to protect your skin.
How do you mask?
Don’t worry, we’ve got all of the options for your skin needs. If you are in need of brighter skin, Summer Fridays R+R mask is great for enhancing your skin’s natural glow with restorative oils like argan, avocado, grapeseed oils, and more! If you have dry skin, Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask is incredible. It is an easy way to get deep hydration while you’re sleeping! You literally wake up dewy and glowing!
It’s all about the moisture
Keeping your skin hydrated is an absolute must! The Ole Henriksen C-Rush brightening gel is great for that extra hydration that also boosts firmness and wrinkle prevention! Another great option is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake Hydra-full Retexturizing Gel Crème Moisturizer. This moisturizer gives you that thicker cream texture that does all the work of retexturizing your skin for optimal hydration. Facial oils are also a great option for hydration if creams aren’t your first choice. The Fresh, Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil is a miracle worker! Seaberry, cranberry seed, and camellia seed oils work together to protect your skin from free radicals, maintain elasticity and retain moisture in your skin. What more could you ask for?
Don’t forget to exfoliate
It is super important to get rid of all of that dead skin so the products you put on after can better penetrate the skin more effectively! Using Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is way less damaging for your skin than ordinary scrubs and helps to better absorb your other products and serums by removing all of that dead skin on the external layer. Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract is a great option for a lighter exfoliation that is easier on sensitive skin. Limiting exfoliation to once or twice a week really gets the job done without drying your skin out.
Sometimes simplicity is key
A lot of times, the products that are the most minimal take your skin a long way. Something simple like incorporating vaseline or heavier lip treatments do wonders for your skin when the weather changes. The most annoying thing is chapped lips and a quick swap from lip balm to Aquaphor can hold in optimal moisture. Clarins Multi-Active eye cream really breathes some extra life into those under eyes. Stress, no sleep? Never heard of her.
