The End Of Summer: What Does It Mean For Your Skin?
As the calendar flips to fall, it's time to reassess what summer's heat, sun, and, air conditioning have done to your skin. Spoiler alert: Dehydration is a given, no matter if you're on Team Oily or Team Dry. So how can we shake off the summer and step into autumn with our skin game strong?
The Stacked Approach: A Three-Step Guide to Post-Summer Skin Revival
STEP 1: EXFOLIATE LIKE A PRO
Ready to evict those dead skin cells overstaying their welcome? Our TCA Multi Acid Face Peel is your eviction notice. Use it 3-5 times per week for a smoother, fresher appearance. For a deeper weekly exfoliation, use our Dermaplaning Tool prior to applying the TCA Multi Acid Face Peel to slough off dead skin cells, lift dark spots, and even your skin texture.
STEP 2: MASTER THE ART OF HYDRATION
Don't let the cooler air fool you—hydration is a year-round job, and proper hydration includes humectants, like hyaluronic acid, that draw moisture into the skin, and ceramides, which moisturize the skin and can be found in our Microbiome Moisturizer. Always finish with a face oil to seal in the hydration and prevent water loss. Our Shiunko Face Oil is a fermented oil that nicely absorbs into the skin and is perfect for all skin types, from oily to dry. For maximum hydration gains, pair these products with our Microneedling Tool.
STEP 3: ADD RETINOL TO THE MIX
As we shift into cooler months, it's a great time to add retinol to your routine if you've skipped it during the sunny season. Our Advanced Retinol Serum boosts collagen production and helps diminish fine lines and hyperpigmentation while controlling breakouts. Start using it once a week, then build up as your skin gets accustomed to it. If you're new to retinol, patch-test a small area on your cheek and let it sit overnight before applying it to your whole face. The patch test will allow you to test for any skin sensitivity.
The Autumn Agenda: Maintain and Adapt
As you bid adieu to summer, remember that skincare is a year-round venture. Now's the time to embrace ceramide-rich moisturizers and keep the SPF rolling. With this updated routine, you're not just bracing for fall—you're making it your beauty playground.
