3 Secrets to Flawless Skin This Fall

As you’ve probably noticed, Fall has officially arrived.  If you look outside, you’ll see the leaves are starting to change colors and in some places, leaves are already falling off the trees.  I love fall, it’s during this season that I get to exchange my summer clothes for boots and cardigans.

Another transition I make during the change of seasons is with my skincare products.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’ve got some new bars of soap that we can’t seem to keep on the shelves.  I’ll add the link below for you to learn more about our new soaps.  

Since the season has changed, there’s no reason for your skin to lose its luster and glow.  Below are 3 secrets to keep your skin looking moisturized and healthy this Fall.

These 3 Tips Will Keep Your Skin Looking Flawless During Seasonal Change

  1. INVEST IN THE PROPER CLEANSER

Cleansers don’t come in One Size Fits All (Seasons).  People like to tell you they do, especially if you are purchasing over the counter (OTC) products because that’s how those companies make their money.  However, when you purchase professional skincare products, they have smaller molecules so they’re better able to penetrate the skin and give you the best results.

The reason you come to a skincare specialist like me, is so I can examine your skin during a facial, determine your skin type, and suggest the proper products for you based on your skin type.   If you are not one of my clients, then, you will want to start seeing an aesthetician and you’ll want to see one at least every season.  You’ll need a facial for all four seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Your skin more than likely will change with the weather.  However, if you invest in the wrong products for your skin type, it will throw off your pH levels and it will take a professional longer to get them back in balance.

2. EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE

We’re in Fall, but headed into Winter, so your skin will get dryer and the skin cells will build-up.  This is when you’ll want to exfoliate.  It’s okay to exfoliate daily as long as you vary your exfoliants.  You may do so by using a light enzyme, a light acid, and a light manual scrub.  If you don’t know what I am talking about or you’re not familiar with these terms, please either leave comments or contact us directly.

*Side note: For those who are pregnant – since the skin is sensitive and even more-so with a little one inside you – you will want to exfoliate with brown sugar.

3. MOISTURIZE

You’ll want to apply the proper moisturizer.  If you have oily skin – please avoid using an oil-based moisturizer and make sure you get a water-based moisturizer.  If you have dry skin, use a more emollient moisturizer.  However, if you don’t know your skin type, please contact us and we will help you schedule a consultation to get the answers to your questions and take care of your needs.

I hope this was helpful.  For more information about our new soaps, check out our previous blogs: Anti-aging Pumpkin Spice Latte Soap,  Sleepy Thyme Soap Soothes Slumber, and Our “Yoni Love” Soap is Drawing His Attention

Milk And Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

Hey tribe, I have finally done it.  Done what? You may be asking…

I created a face cleanser with roses, milk and froth.  I’m so excited about this cleanser.  I’ve personally been using this cleanser for about a year now.  It took me about a year to get the consistency just right.  So, I’m going to be honest, this isn’t what you buy at the dollar store or drug store and if you’re a client or part of the tribe, you know, every product with my name on it starts in my kitchen, before it goes to our lab in Canada and… I did it!

How to use the Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

This is the easiest, it only requires 2 things to get that all over glow and to be clear, we are doing this because Fall is here.  I don’t care what your calendar says.  If you notice, it’s getting dark at 6:30PM, mosquitos have come out, and the pollen count is high.  As far as I’m concerned, Fall has arrived.  As far as your skin is concerned, Fall is here.  

The 2 things you need:

  • your pore cricket which is your silicone exfoliator
  • your cleanser

How to apply the Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

You are going to literally run water over your pore cricket and swirl it around in your cleanser.  The container is so big that this soap is going to last you a long time.  I want you to remember that this is a milk soap so you’ll not want to look for it to be too sudsy, it literally is a rose and milk cleanser and it’s going to feel like you are putting lotion on your skin. 

Once you swirl the pore cricket along the cleanser, you may have to apply a tiny bit of pressure, to get the pore cricket to pick up the cleanser.  Once you have cleanser on the pore cricket, you’ll want to gently scrub the entirety of your face with the pore cricket.  I use hot water whenever I do this.

You’ll want to apply the pore cricket to your face in a circular motion around your face, starting on one cheek and moving in a circular motion all the way around your face.  It’s not going to be foaming, and while cleaning your face with this cleanser, you may question if you are actually cleansing your skin.  The answer is: YES 

Many clients are used to that squeaky clean, feel, but with this cleanser, that’s not what you’re looking for.  After applying the cleanser all over your face, take a clean, wet towel, and wipe your face.  I think the scent of the goat milk and the rose petals is divine.

If you know me, you know I love a good cleanse.  This is really good for removing makeup.  Now, if you have a pore cricket, you’ll want to keep it sanitized.  I personally send mine through the dishwasher, but you can scrub it down, soak it in barbicide, whatever you choose.   Just keep it sanitized and keep it clean.  If you got it from us, it comes with its own clear case.  Slide it right back into that case when it’s not in use.

The contents of this Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

Goat milk – it allows a creamier consistency, it’s gentle on the skin, adds nourishment (vitamin A – anti aging and Selenium – helps prevent dry skin), includes AHA (Alpha-hydroxy acids) and therefore is a gentle exfoliant.  

Rose Petals – loaded with antioxidants, moisturizing and great for dry skin, has anti-inflammatory benefits and soothes redness.  It contains antidepressant effects therefore enhances your mood and has anti-aging effects.  

Here’s the thing, during Fall you pick up a lot of things; a lot of dirt and debris.  As the season changes, your skin changes and when you cleanse your skin, you want to know that you are  picking up that fuzz, and debris and removing it from your skin.  You also want to know that you are hydrating your skin (goat milk benefit).  

If you catch the video (on Instagram), you’ll see the large container for the cleanser; it will probably last you the entire Fall season, which at $45 (includes a pore cricket) it’s quite a deal.  Certainly make sure you order yours today.   

This is an amazing, beautiful product, and my clients will tell you, I’m all about selling product that will last that makes your skin feel hydrated.  I hope you love this cleanser as much as I do!

Best Home Skin Care Tips by Skin Type

EBPB orange lips

Often times, what bothers women about their skin are issues that easily cost less than $100 to fix.  Most skin conditions stem from the need of a deep cleansing or a good exfoliation of the first the second layer of the dermis (skin).  That then allows a professional to thin out the stratum corneum.  Afterwards, all that is needed is a great home care routine to balance out the pH levels of her skin.

THE HOME CARE ROUTINE

You’ll want to get a cleanser that has a pH of between 2.5 and 4.3.  Below are my recommendations based on your skin type:

  • Normal skin – you’ll need a mild cleanser.
  • Oily skin– look for a cleanser that contains Salicylic acid. 
  • Dry skin– look for a cleanser that contains a moisturizer or cream base as well as Lactic acid.
  • Combination skin – seek out a mild cleanser with Glycolic acid.
  • Sensitive skin – you need a cream-based cleanser so that it moisturizers your skin but contains no AHA’s.
  • Myelinated skin – you’ll need a cleanser that contains Hybrid Glycolic acid.

Now let’s address moisturizers for your skin type.  If your skin type is…

  • Normal – you’ll want to look for a creamy moisturizer that contains Hyaluronic acid and Lactic acid.
  • Oily – your moisturizer should be water-based and more of a gel.
  • Dry – look for a cream based moisturizer (shea butter or jojoba oil) with either/and Urea, Lactic acid, Hyaluronic acid.
  • Sensitive + Combination – use a lightweight moisturizer with no acids in it.

Now, if you have acne prone or problematic skin, I would recommend using a toner such as Apple Cider Vinegar.  If you do not have problematic skin I recommend you using a Freshener such as Witch Hazel.  

You also will want to get a facial at least once a month by your aesthetician and that will allow her/him to type your skin and give you the best product recommendations for your skin.  Lastly, if you have more problematic skin your aesthetician can usually correct the problems by using mild to deep acids.

If you need help determining your skin type please feel free to schedule a virtual consultation with me and I will gladly assist you.
