Summertime can feel good for the soul, but after three months of sunbathing, saltwater, and frozen cocktails, our skin can become a bit burnt out from the heatwave. Thankfully, with the motivating energy of fall right around the corner, now is the time to hit the reset button and reestablish a healthy skin care routine.

Here are some ways to get your skin back on track:

Perform a deep detox
The first place to start with any transformation is with a deep clean. Ridding your skin of the dirt and grime (and maybe even sand) that has been collecting in your pores all summer will make you feel instantly refreshed. Giving yourself an at-home spa session with a product such as a KNESKO charcoal mask will help to flush out any toxins and residue left behind on your skin. As an added bonus, the precious black pearl has the power to unlock your root chakra and give you a sense of grounding—something we can all use more of after a relatively care-free summer.

Keep wearing sunscreen
Even though the colder months are upon us and the sun will soon make fewer appearances, it is still important to keep up with the SPF. Even on cloudy days, our skin is vulnerable to the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays from the sun in the form of sunspots, wrinkles, redness, and even skin cancer. The best way to protect yourself against sun damage is by incorporating a quality SPF into your daily skin care regime.

Load up on Antioxidants
Overexposure to the sun, pollution, and even junk food can cause a build-up of free radicals in the skin, which can alter the structure of our skin cells and cause signs of premature aging, puffiness, reduced elasticity, and an overall dullness. The best way to fight off and defend your skin from free radicals is by loading it with restorative antioxidants. You can incorporate more antioxidant-rich foods in your diet, or get straight to the point with a rose quartz mask from KNESKO. With active ingredients like Vitamin C and E and extracts from white tea, licorice root, and grapeseed, you feed your skin powerful antioxidant nourishment infused with the heart opening abundance of Rose Quartz.  Nothing is more restorative than a healthy dose of love.

Exfoliate and moisture
Whether you’re still peeling from your beach burn or just have a dry, dull appearance, scrubbing off the dead skin cells and any other residue left on your skin from summer can feel refreshing. A good, thorough exfoliation will instantly soothe, smooth, and brighten your complexion.

If your skin has felt neglected over the last few months, give it the time and attention it deserves. Browse through KNESKO’s collection of collagen face masks to find which ones fit the needs of your skin and your spirit.
