Just like that, we’ve gone from sun soaked days at the beach and sipping mimosas by the pool to market aisles filled with pumpkin everything.
This only means one thing: Summer’s coming to an end and fall is right around the corner!
Just as the seasons change, so should your skin care routine.
Here is the only guide you need to ensure your complexion stays flawless and glowing as we approach the end of summer.
Hydrate and Replenish
While the sun is great for your skin in small dosages, too much sun exposure is terrible for your complexion, depleting collagen, promoting early aging, exasperating acne, and acne scars… the list goes on.
In order for makeup to do its job, you need a clear canvas. Your skin care routine is your first line of defense to keep your skin protected from the harmful effects the sun may have on your skin.
Our first and most important tip is to keep your skin happy and hydrated.
Before applying any makeup or makeup primers, be sure to apply moisturizer to the face and décolleté. Daily moisturizing will help to increase collagen production and aids in the prevention of pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunscreen Is Your Best Friend
This may be hard to believe during the wettest and coldest parts of the year, but suncreen should be worn daily to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
Unfortunately, conventional sunscreens only protect the skin on a surface level against UV rays. Be sure to find a sunscreen that provides UVA and UVB protection, is water resistant, and has an SPF of 30 or higher.
The right makeup will also offer your skin more than just full coverage. Our Magic Minerals formula not only contains natural SPF, but also lasts for 12 hours giving your skin the protection it needs anytime of the year.
Mind Your Diet
You know what they say, beauty works from the inside out.
In this case, it’s absolutely true! Your diet plays a major role in the health of your complexion.
Be sure to load up on fatty acids such as fish and flax seed to restore your skin’s elasticity and firmness as well as plenty of fruits and veggies to protect the skin from outside humectants.
