Reality check: It’s mid-August which means we’re already neck-deep in Back To School season. Maybe you’re a student or maybe your college days are long behind you - either way, the post-Labour Day period is your chance to get schooled (get it?) on fall skin care. Here are 5 ways that you can kick off the Back To School season with top marks:
GET A POST-SUMMER FACIAL
Admit it, you probably abused your skin this summer. Too much time in the sun, harsh chlorine in swimming pools and air pollution? If you answered yes,yes and yes - your skin deserves post-summer restoration. Book a facial to recover the damage to your skin over the summer as well as to kickstart hydration for the cold weather season.
TACKLE PROBLEM SKIN
Hot weather, sweat and seasonal oily skin create a perfect storm of blemish-generating conditions. When the days start cooling down, it’s time to attack summertime problem skin - and there's no better weapon than probiotics bacteria. Into The Gloss recommends our Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser and Clear Skin Probiotic Masque, both formulated for taming problem skin with the transforming powers of probiotics. After all, who wants to start the first day of school with a less-than-best complexion?
KEEP YOUR FACE CLEAN
During the summertime, you probably stripped down your makeup routine to the basics. Maybe you even braved the hot days makeup-free. When autumn arrives, you’ll probably return to wearing foundation as well as heavier layers of makeup. With more cosmetics on your skin during the coming fall season, now is the time to find the right cleanser and be prepared to keep your face clean. More than ever, the cleansing process is crucial for healthy skin.
DON'T FORGET THE LIPS
When temperatures drop, humidity dips as well. We remember to layer richer moisturizers on our face but what about the lips? Get to the head of the class by pampering our pucker - exfoliate away dry skin cells, hydrate with a lip masque and finish off with a sweep of our Citrus Lip Balm.
TRY A NEW ROUTINE
New weather conditions means new routines for the skin. With the change in season, this is the ideal time to rethink the daily and weekly routines for your skin. Are you ready for cold, dry weather? Now's the time to consider stocking up on products that provide intense hydration and protection for the coming season.
