Fall is a time of transition for our skin. We want to repair the damage from the sunny days of summer from chlorine and salt water and the sun and prepare for the cold dry winter. At KurSpa, we offer treatments and services that prepare, repair and maintain healthy practices. Here are a few recommendations that we encourage you to consider and follow for healthy skin:
1. Add Paraffin to Your Pedicure
After a long summer of flip flops and going barefoot going into the fall months we need to hydrate and pamper our feet. Paraffin is a wax with a low melting point meaning it melts into a liquid form but at a temperature not too hot to treat the skin with it. Feet are dipped in the warm wax and the skin is softened as a result.
2. Change Your Skin Care Routine
An easy fall change is to swap lotions for body butter. Lotion is lighter than body butter. Body butter is a rich hydrating product. It’s important to apply it after a shower when your skin is still damp from the shower to ensure it absorbs properly and stays locked into the skin. KurSpa has an amazing selection of body butter. Our body butters are made with mango butter which is loaded with vitamins like A and E and natural antioxidants, Mango Butter can be extremely nourishing to the skin. Try our healing lavender body butter or our signature maple body butter.
3. Don’t Forget the Sunscreen
Don’t abandon your sunscreen routine as the days cool down. Sunscreen may no longer be first and foremost on our mind but it is important to remember to protect our skin year round.
4. Book a Facial
Weather and climate have a huge impact on our skin. The temperatures are dropping and changing we need to change with it. Having a fall facial is a great way to boost hydration and our KurSpa estheticians are trained to recommend a take home skin care routine that will keep your skin healthy and hydrated during the coming colder months.
5. Change your skin care line
Just like we change our wardrobe with the seasons we need to be open to changing our skin care too. Don’t be afraid to try something new or add in new products that are better suited for different seasons.
An easy change for fall is switch from a cleaning gel or foam to a cleansing milk. Cleansing milk is more hydrating compared to the lighter gel and foam cleansers; a favourite at KurSpa is Clair de Teint Doux from la Bioestheique Paris. Designed to keep the skin soft and beautiful it is great for even the most sensitive skin types.
