Summer is coming to an end and that means our tans will fade, our neon nail polish shades go back into our medicine cabinets and we get to try those dark berry lipsticks, but, most importantly, we face some annoying skin troubles due to the climate change. If you thought your skin took a beating during the summer months, the fall is just as capable to cause some unsightly breakouts and dryness. BeautyStat wants everyone’s skin to make the transition without so much as a pimple in sight, so we talked with celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau who gave us some helpful tips to make the summer to fall cleansing regimen easy and effective. Read on to find out how to decrease your oil production by switching to a less harsh facial cleanser and see which facial treatments work best in the fall. Because good looking skin is always in, regardless of the season!
Renée Rouleau’s Tips:
– “Breakouts are increased during the fall months because the oil flow in the skin during the summer months is still occurring this time of year, yet the cooler air creates layers of dead skin cell build-up. The result is trapped oil and bacteria underneath the surface of the skin resulting in increased breakout activity. Use both a chemical and a physical exfoliant to remove dry skin cells and unclog trapped pores.”
– “Avoid high-foaming cleansers which can strip water out of the skin. If you wash with a foaming cleanser or soap that is too drying, it pulls all the water out of the skin and creates dead, dry skin cell build-up resulting in increased breakouts due to oil and bacteria getting trapped under the skin. Be sure to use a sulfate-free cleanser, which is less drying on the skin.”
– “Once summer is over and you are spending less time in the sun, I always recommend getting a chemical peel. Chemical peels help to fade post-breakout marks; reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles; lighten brown spots and freckles and create smoother, brighter skin. If you can’t get a professional chemical peel, try the Renée Rouleau Triple Berry Smoothing Peel ($85.50) which will peel away dullness and reveal younger-looking, smoother skin with professional-strength results.”
