It’s the end of the year and as usual, it’s time to reflect. Look back on the year and ask yourself: “Did I do as much as I could have to take care of my skin?” The answer is probably no. That’s why in this week’s blog we’re going to pinpoint moments during the year where we see common mistakes people make and give tips on how to fix them next time around.
As if the winter weather isn’t bad enough, maintaining an effective skin care routine can be challenging! For the winter it’s most important to remember two things: exfoliate and moisturize. While most may think you don’t need to exfoliate during the winter, this isn’t true! Exfoliating your face and body twice a week (no more than this as you do not want to over exfoliate!) is going to help get rid of the flake (aka dead skin cell build up) on your skin. Using a uni-dose cotton swab exfoliator that is pre-saturated, like our Rapidex®, will help prevent from over-exfoliating your skin. Follow with a moisturizer day and night to help you maintain smooth and supple skin all winter long.
When You’re Traveling
Vacations are a great time to get away from work and stress, but don’t think for one minute it means taking a break from your skincare routine! Stay covered no matter the destination with a skincare travel kit. First, prep your skin with an exfoliating mask to get your skin cleansed and ready to be the perfect canvas for next the steps in your routine. Second, keep skin nourished with a concentrated serum rich in vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, then finally seal it all in with a mineral-based formula and you’ll be ready for any climate!
The best part about a great night out? The fun! The worst part? Skipping your beauty sleep and seeing the evidence on your face in the morning. For those weekends that kept you up partying all night and waking up looking like a raccoon, we’ve got just the solution. Reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles with cotton rounds soaked in tea. It won’t help you to feel less tired, but at least you’ll look the part.
Hot Summer Days and Nights
To say this summer was hot would be an understatement. We all remember cranking up the AC, but sometimes it’s not possible, such as at the beach or when attending an outdoor festival. That’s the perfect time to reach for a cool misting spray that will keep your skin feeling hydrated and smelling fresh.
Every Month of the Year
Just like your teeth need regular professional cleaning, so does your skin. Be sure to schedule appointments with your esthetician regularly to be on top of your skincare game. Estheticians are trained to inspect your skin and have tools and access you won’t be able to achieve on your own. Not sure where to find an esthetician that carries Repêchage? Look no further than our spa locator, listing spas across the country that carry Repêchage treatments.
