Fall 2013~

Good morning to all !

As of recent, we’ve started to feel a weather change–fall gusts of wind, the nighttime temperature drops, the overcast mornings which beg the aid of a down comforter and a mug of coffee, tea, hot chocolate; whatever works. And this feeling also brings an environmental change; cold air with the immediate aid of warm air (ie. The brisk walk to your car in the mornings, followed by a blast of heater air). Perhaps you have also begun to feel a familiar dryness in your skin, I know I have. 

I urge everyone to take proactive steps to combat this before it really hits ! Thankfully we’ve had our warm pockets still, however those will get less and less frequent as the months wane on. I recommend Dermalogica’s “Skin Hydrating Booster” for this cold weather, as well as “Barrier Repair”, should you be in windier climates. 

And, as always, don’t forget your sunscreen. Just because it’s cloudy doesn’t mean you’re escaping those UV rays.

Skin Tips for the cold~

Hi all! Anise Lew here, Skin Care Therapist at SARAZIN salon.

With the temperature drop (A few months late, in my opinion), I’m sure everyone’s skin is feeling pretty dry. Here are some tips to keep your skin looking glowy in these colder months! (:

  • Drink water. Stay hydrated! If you’re itching for a hot drink, reach for the herbal tea instead of the coffee! Coffee has caffeine, which aids in removing water from your body. Have a nice calm cup of chamomile instead.
  • Don’t blast the car heater in your face! This is the number one culprit of dehydration in the winter months. If you must put on the heater full blast, direct it away from your face! Your skin will thank you!
  • Cover your face. Scarves, sunscreen, the works. Even if it’s a cloudy day, those UV rays will still get you in the end! Especially for those of you in the snow, the reflective property of the ice will hit you twice as hard, so make sure you’re well covered or you’ll be fighting a nasty sunburn!

Enjoy this shift in weather while you can folks, the summer heat will be creepin’ it’s way back in no time…
