The Fall Season is here and your skin has to adjust to the weather change. Your skin gets dry really fast and your skin might start peeling from the sunburn you got during the summer. What should you do? The weather is changing fast and your skin couldn’t adapt to the fast changing weather. Here are 6 tips you could do to prep for the Fall Season.
Start the season with a peeling mask. The extreme exposure to the sun during the summer will tire out your skin. The peeling mask will help lift off the dull outer layer of the skin, revealing a brighter and softer complexion.
Your skin is very fragile. It gets dry and rough very easily when the weather gets colder. Using hydrating serum will nourish and add extra hydration to your skin. You can also use natural coconut oil as a moisturizer for your whole body, especially after a shower or a hot bath.
If you want to exfoliate, use an oil-based scrub for exfoliating. This would not only exfoliate the dead skin cells off, it also hydrates your skin at the same time leaving your skin less dry and flaky.
Don’t forget your lips! Protecting and moisturizing your lips are very important during the cold weather. Start using lip balm to protect your lips from being too dry that might lead to bleeding in some cases. You wouldn’t want to kiss someone with dried lips. 😉
Although the sun isn’t as strong in the Fall than in the Summer, you should still use sunscreen to protect you from UV rays. Using makeup with SPF would also help too.
ALWAYS carry hand cream in your bag. Your hands tend to get dry the most because you do almost everything with your hands. You always wash your hands when it gets dirty and washing your hands too often will wash off all the oil that protects the skin. Now this is when the hand cream comes in handy. Again, you wouldn’t want to hold hands with someone when it feels dry and rough. 😉
Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is the key to fight against the dry cold weather that’s coming. Remember to start preparing early and your skin will thank you later on. Don’t forget to keep warm too.
Telomere name comes from Greek telos (end) and meros (part) and is the end caps of DNA strands that protect our chromosomes. Telomere is a protein that protects the DNA information in the body. Our cells regenerate themselves constantly throughout our lives but telomeres get shorter each time a cell copies itself. When telomeres are too short it will cause premature cellular aging. When our bodies don’t have enough healthy cells to replace collagen or pigment it will show drastic signs of aging in our skin and hair.
Elasto cell formula is another telomere repair system with the benefit of polypeptide botox alternative action. This serum inhibits cell release of neurochemicals that mediates muscular contraction and wrinkles. Acetyl hexapeptide(Argireline) is the key player in this formula. Result is seen in less than 8 days of continual use. The skin feels restored and rejuvenated, depth of wrinkles is significantly reduced, radiance and tone is restored.
Facial massage Increase blood and oxygen flow to the face by massaging the soft lines around the mouth, eyes and brows.
The most important part of skin care routine is to massage your face while applying Elasto cell serum and moisturizer for better absorption. This will increase the effectiveness of the skin care products.
Stimulating and gently massaging the points around the eye orbit helps smooth out fine lines, and help clear puffiness and dark circles.
Massage reduces the levels of stress hormones. Facial massage increases the level of endorphins that makes you feel better.

Though honey may be their most popular product, known for its health and skin care benefits, bees product another substance that works great for our skin—beeswax.
Honeybees produce a natural wax, secreting it from glands on the sides of their bodies. They then scrape the wax off, chew it up and secrete it to the inside of the honeycomb. There, it gradually hardens into a protective lining for the cells where the baby bees are grown and the honey is stored. This hardened material not only serves as a physical protection, but also helps keep the hive free of infections and other contaminants.
Beeswax has been used over the centuries initially to make candles, which it is still used for today. Ancient Egyptians used beeswax to make paint for their artists, and during Roman times, it was also used as a skin softener. Today scientists are studying beeswax for its potential to lower cholesterol, relieve pain, and treat digestive ailments.
Benefits to the Skin
The beauty industry loves beeswax, because not only is natural and non-toxic, it also provides amazing benefits to the skin. It help thicken creams to make them easier to use and more spreadable on the skin.
Here are some benefits of beeswax:
Eczema: is a skin condition that causes an itchy rash on the skin. beeswax act as an antiseptic to keep the infection from spreading while actively eliminates it.
Stretch Mark: weight loss/gain and pregnancy often result in ugly stretch marks on the skin. Beeswax helps prevents and heals these marks naturally.
Acne: Beeswax will soften the skin with an emollient effect that gives a fresh and restored look.
Protective: when applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental stressors, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. This is one of the reasons beeswax is often used in lip balms. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax won’t clog pores.
Humectant: some ingredients “attract” water, and beeswax is one of them. When you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time.
Vitamin A: beeswax helps exfoliation and can rejuvenate your look.
Fragrance: beeswax has a natural honey fragrance, and is a favorite in soaps and perfumes because of its pleasant, light aroma.
Soothes temporary itching: If you suffer from dry skin itching or sensitive skin, beeswax is for you. Because beeswax is anti-allergenic, it is also easily tolerated by even those with reactive skin.

When I was first taking action on what to do in order to improve my skin, I made sure to do my research online. I looked up “what to eat”, “what exercise to do”, even “what material of pillows” I should use. Yes I was obsessed! I wanted to know everything about my skin, and how to make it clear.
One thing that kept on popping up when looking at food to avoid was dairy. Many skin websites out there will warn you against dairy if you’re trying to get rid of acne. I was frightened so much that I tried cut out all dairy from my life. And yes, my skin did get better. But this is no proof that dairy was the culprit, since I totally cleaned up my diet and lifestyle at this time.
Actually, there’s really aren’t that much research that proves dairy causes acne. It’s one of those half-truth myths that circulate the internet. I’m not saying to drink all the milk and eat all the dairy products that you love. You should test if dairy is your specific acne trigger (or one of them). Cut it out of your diet for two weeks and monitor your skin. If you see improvement, there’s a chance that it may be your problem.
Some people find it hard to kick the dairy habit, especially if they have been eating cereal with milk from a young age. But there are healthy alternatives to milk, in form of soy or almond milk. You can easily find these at your local market. Even when I use to order from Starbucks, I asked for almond milk instead. I actually think it taste better.
Our face is daily exposed to light waves which can damage and age the skin. But it’s not just the sun causing problems – now some scientists are claiming light from laptops and smartphones can be dangerous too. Electronic devices emit high energy visible (HEV) blue light, which some studies have shown to be as harmful as UVA and UVB rays, penetrating deeply into the skin.
One study has suggested exposure to blue light could affect the skin’s ability to heal – a key factor in speeding up the ageing process, and they’ve created a product to help combat it. Holding a device like a smartphone on a sunny day could increase the skin’s exposure to UV light by up to 75%.
While sunscreen may help protect against UV rays, it won’t protect the skin from blue light. HEV (high-energy visible) light, which is emitted from our phone and computer screens, is as damaging if not more so than UV light from the sun, penetrating more deeply than UV light and has a negative impact on the DNA within the cells as well as causing oxidative stress and inflammation. This all accelerates skin ageing.”
Is it really bad?
Blue light might interfere with the body’s circadian rhythm – which regulates sleep – and it’s when we sleep that our bodies take the opportunity to repair cellular damage.
“Anything which interferes with sleep affects the body’s ability to heal,” he said. “In skin, this means it affects its ability to repair itself which leads to accelerated ageing.”
What to do?
If you’re worried about your levels of blue light exposure you can try a specialist cream designed to block HEV light. Also use an antioxidant serum for protection, a serum at night to stimulate collagen production and stabilize the melanocytes which cause pigmentation. Wearing a good SPF sunscreen will also help limit the effects from reflected UVA and UVB rays.
But experts agree the best prevention is to avoid using your phone for long periods outside.
