As a society we’re getting much better at protecting our skin in the summer, and we’re learning that it’s also really important to keep up the good work when the temperature gets chilly. We may not reside in “the windy city”, but we get our fair share of gusty days. While a cool breeze is sometimes refreshing, it can also be damaging. Staying hydrated − inside and out − in the fall months should be part of your beauty and health care regiment. Here are a few ideas you can try:
Warm herbal teas enjoyed at home or with friends at your favorite café are soothing and good for you. Tea shops are experimenting with blends like ginger and lime, and new flavours such as Canadian Maple and even ice wine! Steaming soups (check out this Roasted Butternut Squash soup recipe we found online) made from our wide selection of autumn squashes, pumpkins and potatoes are great ways to stay warm and hydrated on the inside. They are also a great excuse to bundle up and stroll through local farmers’ markets.
Of course, improved hydration also comes from keeping your skin exfoliated and moisturized. Our skin cells generally rejuvenate every 28 days, but as we age the process slows. Exfoliation removes dead cells, which helps new cells to be produced. This allows for better product penetration and results in more glowing skin. Not only can you see the difference in your skin, you can also feel it!
The cooler weather sometimes necessitates a temporary switch in skin care products. If you’re unsure if your current product supply will produce the best results for your skin at this time of the year, contact us. We’re always happy to hear from you and look forward to helping you look, feel and know better when it comes to your beauty and health.
“Happy Fall 2013!”
