After a long and hot Sonoma County summer, your skin could use a little TLC. Karen Borgfeldt, Sonoma County Clinical Esthetician, has been in the skin care field for nearly 30 years and knows just how to remedy the side-effects of too much fun in the sun. Here are Karen’s top 5 tips for glowing and healthy fall skin:
Just because it’s fall or winter, don’t stop using sunscreen. Even when it’s not sunny outside, you’re still getting UVA rays, which cause cumulative damage to your skin throughout the year. Karen recommends applying Skinworx Daily Replenishing SPF 30+ sunscreen, a chemical-free tinted moisturizer, primer and BB creme that contains antioxidants and peptides. It both calms and protects skin.
Give yourself an at-home hand treatment regularly. First, use a gentle skin scrub on your hands. Try a certified organic scrub, like this ethically crafted scrub from Benedetta in Sonoma County. It’s made with Jojoba oil, African Black Soap, Red Marine Algae, 4 types of exotic Salts, 2 types of sugars and a blend of citrus essential oils. (Benedetta Citrus Sugar & Salt Exfoliant is available online at benedetta.com, $32.)
