Have you started fixing your sunspots and rough skin, like we outlined on Monday? Here are the finals steps to add to your late summer routine.
Pump It Up
Sun protection is still a key aspect to keep your skin looking its best. Don't start slacking on the sunscreen if you have been diligent all summer. And if you haven't, that's ok. Just be sure to start now to protect from further damage.
If you don't use an antioxidant, now is the time to start. Using a Vitamin C-based serum at night will help neutralize any free radical and UV energy that has been lurking in your cells. This is an essential second step of sun protection and after all the summer sun exposure is a great time to add it into your routine.
And finally, be sure to keep your skin moisturized. All summer you are exposed to salt, chlorine and sun, which can have a very drying effect. Using a moisturizer will help with rough skin cells that rob you of your "glow." And not only will it keep your skin hydrated, but it creates a temporary plumping effect that smooths fine lines.
Start this late summer routine now and welcome fall with healthy, beautiful skin.
