Right now my skin is suffering that transitional period from summer to fall where you have those blotchy dry patches —especially on my legs. So moisture is my top priority in my skincare, especially on my face since I can hide my legs but not my face.

Check out a few tips from nugg in-house esthetician, Kristyn Smith, provides us with some great tips on how you can combat this seasonal transition and help your skin cope:

1. Cleanse – Be sure to use a non-drying, non-irritating cleanser.

2. Exfoliate – Do not manually exfoliate using harsh exfoliators as this can actually worsen existing tears and leaks in the skin barrier. Instead, try to incorporate an enzymatic exfoliator with only gentle beads, if any, such as the nügg exfoliating face mask, once a week.

3. Soothe – In order to help repair or strengthen the skin barrier or whenever you feel your skin is suffering from adjustment reactions to the elements (too dry, too oily, break outs), having something on hand such as the nügg soothing face mask will come in useful in terms of helping your skin achieve balance when it needs a little extra attention. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend using this every day as a sleep mask over night, and otherwise twice a week as a regular face mask. Make sure to just wipe (not wash) off the mask after 10 minutes so that the ingredients can continue to soothe and hydrate your skin overnight.

4. Hydrate – Lastly, give back to your skin from the outside in. Remember it’s been exposed to a variety of irritants (summer sun, the wind and cooler air from the fall, and interior factors such as hot water and heaters) and will be in need of a good source of hydration. Day cream should be moisture rich and loaded with antioxidants as well as environmental protectants, and night cream moisture rich as well, and full of soothing and healing ingredients. Even as the sun isn’t as strong as during summer, always make sure to use a moisturizer with SPF during the day. In addition to this, incorporating the nügg hydrating mask 1 to 2 times a week will give the skin sub-surface moisture creating a healthy reservoir of hydration for the skin to draw from, and will help repair damage to your natural skin barrier. Finally, if using the same moisturizer AM and PM, or if you’re unwilling to part with your light moisturizer, try adding a few drops of Jojoba oil to your cream – not only will it help to moisturize, but it will also aid in barrier repair.
