Cellulite Solution’s 7 Tips for Turning that Summer Skin into a Fall Glow


Summer Is Finally Over And Now It Is Time To Embrace Pumpkin Spiced Everything.


But all that time outside this summer can lead to unsightly spots, wrinkles and dry patches. Not to mention with the winter winds coming,our skin needs to be primped and pampered for protection. So without further adieu, here are 7 tips for making sure your skin retains that pretty glow from summer while preparing for the fall and winter.

Start with the fats

Spending a lot of time under the sun may sound perfect, but the long exposure can actually deplete collagen in your skin. Collagen is a substance in your skin that supports tissues and is responsible for the firm youthful skin we all crave. The sun breaks down this substance and causes early signs of aging.To prevent this break down and promote collagen reproduction make sure to include foods in essential fatty acids, like salmon, leafy veggies, and flaxseed.

Make sure to use sun-screen

While the sun is strongest in the summer, it is important to wear sunscreen year round. Regular sunscreens are great for protecting against pesky UVBs, but they only protect the surface.To get protection against deep skin damage it is important to use a product that extends into the skin year round like Cosmedix Serious Protection or Shiseido Ubarn Environment Oil-Free UV Protector.

Exfoliate Your Skin

Skin can get rough and lifeless from spending so much time outdoors. Moisturizing is a key step but if you keep moisturizing an area that is already a goner, it won’t make a difference.Make sure to exfoliate the dead skins cells and days of make up and sunscreen at least once a week to help improve the smoothness and absorption of skin cells during the lotion process.I suggest starting with a simple, and luckily cheap, apricot scrub from St. Ives. Their line of facial scrubs and washes will help kickstart any beauty routine.

Don’t forget the lips

Often times when we say get your skin ready… we forget that our lips are a vital part of our skin.The sun damages our lips just as much if not more than the rest of our skin leaving us to have the infamous duck lips with dry and cracked mouths. It is important to follow the previous steps for the lips, too.We suggest using a homemade sugar scrub to get off the dry flakes (and get a sweet treat) then moisturize with a sunscreen lip balm combo to help with anti-aging and the Fall/Winter winds.

Start waxing

Shaving can cause a multitude of problems from ingrown hairs to nicks and dry irritated skin.Shaving actually removes key oils and lipids on the outer layer of your skin, which leads to some serious exposure to the fall and winter atmosphere.So we suggest everyone partake in No-Shave November and switch to a professional waxing regimen to avoid the damaging effects of razors.

Invest in hand creams

Note the word cream not lotion. Fall winds bring dry air and a need for a thicker moisturizer. Creams, unlike lotion, provide a thicker, oilier barrier to help protect cracks and dryness. They also help retain water in the outer layer of the skin and provide much needed hydration.Start moisturizing now with a product like Nivea Creme to ensure soft, beautiful hands all season long.


Doing all the things above can help, but to achieve a noticeable change, you need to take off the damaged layer of skin and show the beautiful smoother skin below.
