Do you have a shine by 11 a.m.? Already dreading what your face will look like by 5 p.m.?

We hear you! You want relief and you want it yesterday. By now you know the oily skin basics.

• Use skin care products designed for your oily skin

• Don’t over dry your skin. You’ll just create more oil

• Make sure everything you use is oil-free

But when these steps aren’t enough, it’s time to add more punch to your skin care.

Add a water-based serum that also contains hyaluronic acid, or HA, a naturally occurring substance in your body. HA attracts 1000% more water than its weight. That’s good news for your oily skin because water is what it’s missing. Continued use of HA reduces oil.

Exfoliate. When pores are clogged, nothing is moving. Your skin feels dry and rough, which makes your oil glands work even harder to try and lubricate your skin.

That’s why exfoliation is so important. At home, choose a clay mask to stimulate circulation and draw out impurities. Another good exfoliant is an enzyme mask with papaya, bromelain, or pumpkin. All are excellent exfoliants.

Professional Fruit Acid Peel. An alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid treatment will clear clogged pores, minimize size and allow much better penetration of your skin care products.

Are you sensing a theme here? Exfoliation is the key to unclogging your pores, refining your skin, and allowing products to work more efficiently.

The results are reflected beautifully on your face!

Your skin had more energy when you were younger, more elasticity, vibrancy and glow. But as you age, sun damage, smoking and diet all wreak havoc causing you to lose that youthful glow.

It’s that wonderful time of year. The weather is changing and your skin is probably grumbling.

What can you do now to prepare for the colder months ahead? Let’s take a look.

How To Transition Your Skincare Needs

Take a look at what you’re using. Does your skin feel tight and dry after you’ve cleansed and moisturized? Then it’s time to swap out your warm weather cleanser for a more hydrating one.

Cool air robs your skin of its natural oils. Without these oils your complexion will become dry and dull. Step up your moisturizer to one that’s more emollient. This will help reduce water loss on the surface of your skin.

Add a hydrating serum to keep skin from feeling tight and dry, and to plump it up. And don’t forget to exfoliate! So many people think this step can be skipped in colder months.

Not so! Exfoliation clears away old dead skin cells that create a dull complexion. It also enhances the effects of ALL your other products.

Add facials! Facials work deeply to hydrate, regulate the immune system, prevent wrinkles, clarify and tone the skin.

And lastly, this is no time to skimp on sunscreen! Protecting your skin from environmental assault is a yearlong commitment.

If you need some assistance transitioning your skincare, just let us know. We’re here to help!

Before you can say, what happened, these three habits have a way of sneaking up and wreaking havoc on your skin.

Let’s see what they are and what you can do about them.

DIY Facials- It’s so tempting to squeeze that zit or chip away at the edge of a scab. But, if you pick a pimple until it bleeds, you’re injuring your skin! And that can lead to scarring.

If you must squeeze a pimple, do it gently, Better yet, let us do it. We’ll handle that little monster with the greatest of care.

Sleeping with your make-up on. As much as we’ve harped on this, you should know by now that this bad habit not only ages your skin up to four days in one night, but it creates a breeding ground for bacteria. That means blackheads and pimples.

Even if you think you can’t wash your face before hitting the hay, consider a pre-moistened towelette to remove the day’s make-up and grime.

Hanging on to outdated cosmetics- If you can’t remember the last time you used it, it’s probably been longer than three months.

Toss it! Just like sleeping with your make-up on, outdated products are bacteria-breeding farm. Yes, we all love to save money, but a healthy dose of commonsense goes just as far. Mark the date on the container when you buy it. Better to be safe than sorry!

These three skin saboteurs are really more about time and lifestyle choices. They’re easy to slip into, and with a little effort, just as easy to slip out of.

When you think of snacking, you probably think of junk food like pretzels and ice cream. But did you know that some snacking is actually good for your skin?

Eating every few hours is a good way to keep your blood glucose, or blood sugar, stable.

That means fewer breakouts, rashes and wrinkles. But what snacks help your skin? Those that contain fiber, protein and healthy fats.

Instead of opting for rice cakes or pretzels, which break down quickly in your body, choose nuts or hummus with a gluten-free cracker.

Strawberries with dark chocolate are also a sweet treat. But if the berries aren’t in season, just go for a small amount of the dark chocolate. Research shows that it helps us have smoother, moist skin. Plus, cocoa is high in antioxidants.

Nuts, which are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, have the ability to diminish wrinkles! Choose walnuts, almonds, pistachios and hazelnuts. They are rich in omega 3’s and offer skin-plumping benefits, too.

Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins C and A. Both are essential for healthy glowing skin. Choose sweet potato chips to help you get and keep great skin. The important thing here is to gradually move away from very processed snacks.

Initially, you might not feel as satisfied, but as your tastes change—and they will—you’ll find you eat less and look healthier!
