After hours of sunshine, layers of sunscreen, and weeks of dry skin buildup, our skin is in desperate need of some tender love and care. What will never go out of style? Fresh, glowing skin. We compiled a list of skincare steps to achieve that perfect fall glow.
Switch Up Your Cleanser
We’ve all been there, we buy a product we love, but a few months go by and it stops working like it once did. Truth be told, our skin changes, just like the seasons. But why? Continuous product application and changing environmental factors can cause products to lose their effectiveness. The next time you find yourself wanting to switch it up, make the change to organic products that contain only natural ingredients.

Sweat It Out
The hottest way to detox your body from summer impurities? Try 45 minutes in an infrared sauna. The infrared light penetrates deep beneath the skin making you sweat deep within. Don’t worry, this is a light free skin detox. An infrared sauna looks just like a regular sauna but you sweat more, and it is more beneficial to our wellbeing! A study in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in your skin including a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as skin tone, softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness. Celebrities Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow are religious users of infrared Saunas. Aniston says, “I really love an infrared sauna; it just allows for such beautiful, glowing skin and cell rejuvenation and detoxification. It even helps with weight loss and relaxation.” So, what are you waiting for? Find your closest infrared sauna and get ready to sweat.
Don’t Skip Your Serum
We know what you’re thinking… I’ll just use my regular facial moisturizer. As it turns out, experts say no to that basic method. Instead, use a serum for deep penetrating moisture. Ni’Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist and vice president of research and innovation at Englewood Lab explains how “the beauty of a serum is that most of the fluid is eliminated, so what you’re left with is a high concentration of active ingredients.” Serums contain the most potent, active ingredients to help you fight signs of aging, and hydrate your skin. So, before the transition from UV rays to central air dries your skin, grab our Seeds of Youth Serum and stay hydrated by Jojoba.
