The transition from warm summer days into crisp Autumn mornings can take a toll on your skin. I asked some of my chicological product experts in the office to share their favorite tips for keeping their complexions looking fresh and luminous!
Exfoliate Gently: Even though I'm always slathered with sunscreen, spending time in the summer sun can cause dead skin build-up on the surface of my skin. To remove this dull layer, I exfoliate regularly with Josie’s Argan Exfoliating Powder, and follow with a rich coat of 100% Pure Argan Oil to saturate my skin with vitamins and moisture. Applying products on freshly exfoliated skin allows them to absorb better. But make sure you don’t go crazy on your face—over-exfoliating causes irritation! --Annalise, Marketing
Try an At-Home Weekly Treatment: I love DIY beauty like at-home masks. One of my favorite weekly treatments is mixing together greek yogurt with some Argan Oil and raw honey and applying that to my face for 10 minutes. The lactic acid in the yogurt helps dissolve pesky dry and hyperpigmented spots while the Argan Oil and honey work together to seal in hydration. --Jenn, Product Development
Eat Up: As the weather gets drier and colder, I like to feed my body with lots of good-for-my-skin snacks. I focus on getting plenty of essential fatty acids from whole food sources like nuts and healthy oils. These foods help my skin fend of flakiness and irritation by fortifying the lipid barrier. I also like drinking a glass of hot water with lemon every morning to warm up and jumpstart my body with hydration. --Taunia, Product Development
