Fall Into Great Skin At The Gilded Girl
Autumn means cool nights, warm sweaters, hot drinks, and….nurturing skin care? Yes! Fall is when the Earth prepares itself for hibernation and rest. Your skin should be prepared, too.
Through gentle exfoliation, restorative serums, a move towards richer moisturizers, and calming protection from the increasing chill, your skin will be healthy and beautiful for the upcoming winter months.
- Gentle Exfoliation: Assisting your body in the shedding of skin left dry, dehydrated, and damaged by the sun, water, late nights, and beachy cocktails is a must. The remnants of summer time fun can keep even the most potent serums and moisturizers from working their best.
- Restorative Serums: Serums are the best way to deliver active ingredients to the skin. Their molecular structure is as such that they are often able to penetrate the skin’s defenses, bringing their bounty to the layers of the skin that can use it the most. Vitamin C is a favorite for fall as it helps repair sun damage and can assist in reducing the redness caused by colder temperatures.

- Richer Moisturizers and Calming Protection: Finding the perfect moisturizer can seem daunting. How can you be sure the ingredients are in the right form and concentration to work? Rest assured, every product at The Gilded Girl has been hand chosen by our licensed skin care professional and she is a stickler for efficacy! As the weather gets cooler, it also gets drier. The work of a moisturizer at this time of year is two fold: The first is to deliver moisture and nutrients to the surface of the skin, helping to plump up cells, reducing visible signs of aging and giving a fresher appearance. The second is to smooth down the cuticle layer of the skin (the very surface) and help slow down evaporation of water from the skin into the cool, dry air.
