Even toned, healthy-looking beautiful skin is always on trend but seasonal changes can affect how fabulous it looks.  Skin of color is especially sensitive to cooler temperatures becoming water-deficient and in cases of dry skin types, oil deficient.  It’s important to be attentive and listen to your skin. Increased breakouts, dark spots, dryness, and sensitivity are all signs that you need to modify your skincare routine to specifically address your skin’s needs.

Be Gentle to Face. As temperatures start to cool, your skin produces less oil which may cause dryness.  To help retain moisture, use a mild cleanser when washing the face so as not to strip the skin.  A gentle cleansing lotion can do a more effective job of dissolving makeup on the face and within the pores leaving skin comfortably clean and refreshed.  (Makari Deep Cleansing Lotion, 4.75 fl.oz., $33.95)
Tone…Tone..Tone. If your daily routine doesn’t include using a toner, start now!  Cooling temperatures can dehydrate skin depriving it of water important to maintain balance. Skin toners help restore skin’s natural pH balance, control oil, slough away dead skin cells, clear impurities and refine pores for a brighter, more vibrant appearance.  (Makari Purifying and Cleansing Toner, 4.75 fl.oz., $39.95)
Brighten Dull Skin. Dehydration can do more than just leave your skin feeling dry and tight, it can also dull your complexion.  Restore radiance with skin brightening supplements, serums, gels, or creams infused with natural lighteners – such as Vitamin C, Bearberry, Licorice, and Mulberry – which help lighten discolorations and even skin tone to reveal a brighter you.
Slather on SPF Moisturizer. Skin of color may be less prone to sun damage but it is prone to dark spots and hyperpigmentation from sun exposure. And increased sun exposure can accelerate the signs of aging therefore, sunscreen is a daily essential.  A nourishing, cream moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 15 will help protect and revitalize sun exposed skin.  Look for a moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid, allantoin, and glycolic acid to soften texture and stimulate collagen production for a supple, youthful appearance.
Nourish your Glow. Skin of color is sensitive to harsh winds which may cause excessive dryness. Using a natural oil-based moisturizer will boost antioxidant protection, balance hydration levels in skin, nourish and protect it.  Apply oil after bath or shower to lock in moisture improving skin’s appearance and texture. (Makari Extreme Argan & Carrot Botanical Body Oil, 4.23 fl.oz., $24.95)
