Although tight, flakey, and dull are never words we want to use to describe our skin, they can often be effects of seasonal changes and the cooler weather. Celebrate the fall season with a few tips for maintaining a glowing complexion through the winter months.

Hydrate:
Staying hydrated both inside and out is key to keeping skin looking its best. Drinking plenty of water can help maintain skin’s moisture from the inside, while using a hydrating serum like our Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum protects, hydrates, and soothes skin.

Exfoliate:
Stimulating the growth of new skin cells is important for a healthy complexion. Gently exfoliating to remove the outermost layer can reveal glowing skin. Choosing an exfoliator that does not dry skin out, like our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub, can give you a luminous complexion without over-cleansing already parched winter skin. Using our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub made with crushed walnut shells rather than harmful micro-beads, is not only better for you, but also better for our planet.

Protect:
Your skin will thank you for creating a healthy barrier against the elements. A moisturizer with sun defense like our SPF 30 Protective Day Cream or our Almond-Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15+ are perfect for year round protection to fight against premature aging and wrinkling as well as offering protection from UVA/UVB rays.

Detoxify:
A weekly mask can help to polish and purify facial skin to alleviate dullness or flaking. A mild, yet effective mask takes only a few minutes for instantaneous results. Try our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque for a three-in-one treatment that gently loosens dull skin cells, clears pores, and polishes away impurities. With no artificial fragrances, colors, mineral oil, gluten, or parabens, renewed skin is a treatment away.

Combine:
Since the drying effect of the cold months leaves skin parched, don’t be afraid to add extra moisture and care by layering products. Adding a serum, like our Cellagen Renewal Serum or our Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum, underneath a daily moisturizer can boost moisture and instantly improve skin’s tone and texture.

Giving skin extra care and pampering during the winter months can mean the difference between a dull, dry complexion and a healthy, glowing complexion.

Screen shot 2014-12-04 at 3.06.04 PMWith the winter chill settling in, we could all use a little help to renew our skin’s appearance. Exfoliating the skin on a regular basis is important because sloughing dead skin cells reveals a brighter, more even complexion. Exfoliated skin is clearer, less likely to breakout, and youthful-looking as lines and wrinkles are minimized during the process. Without exfoliation, skin can look dull and flaky.

Knowing when to exfoliate and how is dependent on skin type and preference. Earth Science Naturals offers four exfoliating options and are appropriate for varying skin types.

ES Apricot Gentle Facial ScrubFan-favorite, Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub, is a good option for sensitive, normal or normal/dry skin. Say “no thanks” to those pesky plastic beads that you’ll find in other traditional facial scrubs – our cream-based exfoliating cleanser contains only natural walnut shell granules. The natural granules remove dead surface cells and are safe to rinse down the drain. As with any bead-containing scrub, it’s imperative to gently work over the face, and to not apply excess pressure or press down on the skin. This product functions as a cleanser. Its creamy base will foam up and lather. Once rinsed, skin will be smooth, fresh and clean.

ES Gentle Skin Peel_PapayaGlycolicUnique Papaya Glycolic Gentle Skin Peel, for those with blemishes, lines or wrinkles. More like an exfoliating, purifying facial than a peel, this mud-like mask will dry taut after about 10 minutes and rinse off with water. It contains sweet almond meal and bentonite clay to help regulate oiliness and prevent breakouts. Wrinkle-reducing benefits are a result of papaya extract, glycolic and lactic acids. Use twice a week after cleansing and before toning and moisturizing. See noticeably smoother and more even-toned results after the first use. Gentle Skin Peel will help keep skin clear and youthful-looking.

05496001858Need some heavy-duty wrinkle control? A/B Hydroxy Acid Night Rejuvenator will do the trick. Whether skin is naturally dry or prematurely aging, this lightweight lotion can be applied a few times a week in the evening for deep exfoliation. Glycolic and lactic acids along with hyaluronic acid and plant oils deliver noticeable exfoliation with the hydration to stay soft and supple-looking. Additionally, a low level of salicylic acid to assist with keeping breakouts at bay. Can be used alone or underneath another moisturizer. Regular use will minimize lines, wrinkles and dryness and help slow-down future signs of aging.

webES FA Purfecting LotionLastly, our newest exfoliant, Fruit Actives Perfecting Lotion offers an exciting patented blend of fruit extracts that naturally produce glycolic, lactic and malic acids. This innovative formula has a very lightweight pleasing texture, excellent to use as a treatment moisturizer for normal and normal/oily skin in the evening. It can be applied underneath a heavier moisturizer for drier skin types as well. It is gentler than similar products, and is also a great idea for those concerned with preventative aging. Use Fruit Actives Perfecting Lotion a few evenings a week to keep wrinkles and dullness at bay.

Try exfoliating. Your skin will thank you for it, and you’ll look radiant.
