My favorite time of year is here…FALL! A time for beautiful falling leaves, exciting holiday preparations, cooler weather (if you’re in Florida like me you’ll appreciate this one), and yes ALL THINGS PUMPKIN! While changing seasons can be exciting, it is important to remember that your skin may need some extra TLC after a long summer season. Here are a few ways to #FALL into great skin!
Get your skin in shape and remember these quick tips to help #GetYourGlowOn just in time for the holiday season:
You Are What You Eat
It is true…you are what you eat! Providing your body with an assortment of fruits and vegetables of all colors will supply your skin with healthy fats and nutrients that will keep you looking #BeautyFull from the inside out. The fall season brings us many exciting things…including delightful foods that not only taste great…but are good for our skin too! Here are 6 Fall Foods the (shared by the Huffington Post) to help you get glowing skin this season.
Sweat It Out
Believe it or not…working out helps make your skin #glow! Our skin receives many benefits during cardio activity including:
- Calming chronic skin conditions
- Increasing circulation and blood flow while delivering oxygen and nutrients to your skin
- Maintaining skin firmness and elasticity
- Detoxing your skin through sweat
- De-stresses your body, which will de-stress your skin
So the next time you’re trying to stay motivated to hit the gym…remember that just 15-30 minutes of cardio won’t just keep your body muscles in shape…but it will help you achieve skin fitness too! …and if you’re needing some extra motivation, check out what our fitness expert has to say about staying motivated!
Get Some Sleep
It’s a proven fact that we’re increasingly tired during cooler months. If you’re feeling sleep deprived, it’s probably a good idea to get to bed early or plan for increased levels of sleep. Sleep can have negative effects on your body which can, in turn, lead to increased levels of cortisol which can lead to stress and inflammation in your body. Sleep can also worsen skin conditions, cause puffy eyes and wrinkles, accelerate aging, and more. For added benefits, use Pevonia’s Lumafirm collection to repair your skin while you sleep!
#ProTip: For days where sleep deprivation can’t be avoided, try Pevonia’s all-new EyeRenew Conceal & De-Age Treatment to conceal tired eyes, and help repair your skin!
De-Stress & Stay ‘Chill’
Whether or not you want to admit you’re stressed…your skin will be sure to tell you…in the form of a nasty breakout. Find ways to de-stress with activities such as meditation, yoga, going to the spa…or just practicing breathing exercises…to keep you feeling calm, to help aid in achieving a #BeautyFull (break-out free) Fall Glow.
The Hard Truth About the PSL
This is a hard one to swallow. I hate that I’m going to say it…because I too am guilty of far too many Pumpkin Spiced Latte’s. However, delicious or not…they’re probably not the best way to achieve perfect skin. Containing more sugar than a can of coke (39g), a Grande PSL with 2% milk and whipped cream has 50g of sugar! If avoiding them all together isn’t an option, Shape magazine recommends these tips to cutting calories and achieving healthier options:
Go for a short, the smallest sized coffee available at Starbucks (8 ounces)
Ask for less syrup (add cinnamon for natural flavor)
Go for a cappuccino (using less milk) instead of a latte
Skip the whipped cream to cut 70 calories
