Our skin reacts to the change of seasons. As the sun sets earlier in the winter months, and the evenings and mornings become cooler, oily skin tends to become ‘normal’ while normal skin becomes drier. The fall, transitioning between summer and winter, is the perfect time to repair the skin from the sun damage caused by the summer months.
In cooler months, as the heat, moisture and humidity start to drop, the skin will start craving for more hydration. Cleansers must be gentler to adapt to these changes and moisturizers have to be more intense, especially for dry and normal to dry skins.
Exfoliation is the key to unveiling fresh, new, younger looking skin this season. Exfoliate with Merle Norman’s Gentle Polish, Polished Perfection or Derma Peel to get rid of the dead skin cells that have built up during the summer.
Although the severity of summer is dropping the skin still needs protection from harmful UV rays. Dual Spectrum is an advanced broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 that provides protection against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. The lightweight lotion contains Vitamin E to reduce free-radical damage and hydrating conditioners to keep the skin looking healthy, replenished and more youthful. Its non-irritating formula is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skins. Choose foundations with SPF too!
Skin needs to be pampered during the transition of seasons; so even when you cleanse, scrub, tone and moisturize, do so delicately and dry your skin by patting with a towel rather than rubbing. Gentle care is the key!
