3 Simple Ways to Get Skin Ready for Fall by Obagi
This is the time of year that many of us look forward to. The days progressively grow shorter, the sweaters are a little thicker, and everything in nature starts to prepare to go into a deep winter sleep. While you are going through your Fall preparations, it’s important to take some time to also prepare your skin for the changing weather.
Here are 3 Simple Ways to Get Your Skin Ready for Fall by Obagi:
1. During the Summer months, you may have noticed some extra pigmentation in your skin (especially if you weren’t totally diligent about using your sunscreen or taking other sun protection measures). The gold standard for treating these dark spots on the skin is hydroquinone (HQ), which is a key ingredient in the Obagi Nu-Derm® System. Hydroquinone works by blocking the process in the skin that leads to discoloration. Prescription is required for hydroquinone formulated products.
2. The wind and cold can affect your skin, so be sure to use a moisturizer. Proper hydration will help create an optimal cover in order to provide the most benefit to your skin. Some moisturizers, including Obagi Hydrate®, work by helping the skin hold on to its own moisture by sealing it in3. Use Hydrate as part of your morning routine and Hydrate Luxe™ - which adds an even more luxurious moisturizing layer - at night.
3. Don’t step out of the house without first applying sunscreen. You may think that you don’t need to wear sunscreen on cloudy Autumn days, but the UVB (think burning) rays and UVA (think tanning and premature aging) rays of the sun can damage your skin every day of the year, rain or shine. Choose a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF of at least 30 and apply it before your makeup every morning.
