Fall may signal the return of plaid and Pumpkin Spice Lattes (no comment), but it also signals something you may have overlooked: a skincare regimen change-up. Because while finding that perfect cozy sweater to tuck into is easy enough, knowing exactly what’s happening to your skin as it transitions is a bit trickier. And it (unfortunately) shows. Here’s what you need to know about cold weather and skin health:
Quench your skin’s thirst for more moisture by adding some essential hydration-packed products to your routine.
Causes Sallow Complexion
Bring back skin’s luster with monthly maintenance.
Depletes Internal Hydration
Eat and drink your way to a healthier, more hydrated complexion.

Cold temps constrict blood vessels and thus can hinder circulation, causing your complexion to look sallow. To ensure a healthy, radiant glow, we highly suggest monthly maintenance with the Oxygen Facial. It helps to stimulate circulation along with a bevy of many other benefits.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day will keep your skin moisturized and help eliminate toxins effectively. Have an extra glass of water for every glass of alcohol/cup of coffee you take to prevent possible dehydration. Ingesting foods rich inOmega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants such as polyphenols, Vitamins A, C and E can help reverse summer damage, prepare it for the challenges it will face during fall and winter and boost the skin’s immune system while preserving its quality and restoring its natural glow.
