One of the keys to youthful looking skin is moisture, especially during the colder months when dry air can strip you dry. So how do you get moisture into the skin and make it stay there? With a little TLC from a couple of medical-grade skin care products that work to clean up the outer layer of the skin and infuse it with moisture.
The Benefits of Exfoliation
Chances are, those wrinkles you see are being emphasized by dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Retinol which everyone over the age of 30 should have as part of their skincare regimen, helps to turn cells over, but you still need some help in removing those dead skin cells. That's where exfoliation comes in. Whether it's professional microdermabrasion or chemical peels, or a good at-home exfoliation product, exfoliating clears off that layer of dead skin to reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. Once revealed, it’s time to hydrate up with a boost of moisture.
Add Essential Moisture
No matter how good your moisturizer is, sometimes we all need a little boost of essential moisture. That's where adding a hydrating serum, such as HA Serum, comes in to give your skin what it needs: A drink of water. HA Serum is a hyaluronic acid-based product that will add essential moisture and, thereby, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Banish Dry Skin
When the skin loses moisture, not only does your skin feel different, but it looks different also: It’s tight. It isn’t smooth. All of your fine lines and wrinkles become more obvious. The good news is there’s a simple 2-step skin fix:
Step 1: Exfoliate.
Step 2: Use a rich moisturizer designed to lock moisture in.
Not only will your skin look more alive, active ingredients from other skin care products will be better absorbed and makeup will go on smoother. Simply put, your skin will thank you!
Get Your Glow Back
Dull skin is the number one complaint during the colder months and you can thank dead skin cells for that. A physical scrub is one of the best ways to instantly eliminate the surface cells responsible for dullness and leave you with fresh and glowing skin.
For an added boost in brightness, add a weekly mini-peel to your routine. Perfect for every skin type!
Fall is a welcome change from the heat and humidity of summer, but with the cool down comes drier air — and that means drier skin. It’s a seasonal shift that can cause skin to become dehydrated, which not only calls unwanted attention to fine lines and wrinkles, but also to uneven skin texture and discolorations. Here's how to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful this fall:
As obvious as it may seem, hydration plays a big role in how your skin looks. If you let it dry out, not only will it affect your skin’s appearance, it can also become uncomfortably tight. Just as we change our wardrobes in the cooler, drier month’s it’s important to change your skin care products. This season, step up to a richer moisturizer and, if you are especially prone to dryness, add a hyaluronic acid serum to your daily hydration efforts, using the moisturizer to lock it all in.
It may seem counterintuitive to scrub away at dry skin, but a physical scrub is great way to get rid of the dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Not only are these cells responsible for emphasizing wrinkles and dullness, but they can also block absorption of the active ingredients in your skin care products.
Fall is the perfect time to address skin discolorations and uneven texture that may have become more apparent after summer sun exposure. A vitamin C serum that includes pure stabilized L-ascorbic acid can help to improve skin texture and tone resulting in healthier looking skin.
The secret to revealing perfectly healthy and bright summer skin is actually very simple. Get your glow on this season by taking these 3 small steps to find yours!
1. Finding Flawless
Naturally flawless skin is a must during the warmer months, especially since the trend is to go lighter with makeup. But it can take a little prep work. The key is weekly exfoliation to remove the outer layer of dead skin. The result? Fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable and skin glows!
We love MD Scrub because of its clay base that’s infused with bamboo for gentle exfoliation. As a bonus, it also includes antioxidant ingredients for anti-aging! If you have mature or acneic skin, you’ll get the best results by having a professional microdermabrasion treatment first.
2. Clean & Balanced
Perfectly clear skin can go south overnight without the right cleanser, especially in the summertime when oil, perspiration and pollution are at elevated levels. But there’s also a delicate balance you need to maintain for healthy, clear skin: One the one hand, you need a cleanser that effective cleans away oil, debris and makeup; on the other, you don’t want it to be so harsh that it also strips away the essential oils and moisture your skin needs to be nourished and hydrated. Dr. Few formulated the perfect balance with LF Cleanser, which eliminates impurities and leaves skin clean, clear and beautiful!
3. That Summer Glow

Throughout the winter months your skin changes. It becomes drier and the general lack of moisture only calls unwanted attention to fine lines and wrinkles. After months of layering on products to try and hydrate and protect, it’s finally time to take a step back and peel away winter’s layers — literally. Ready... Set... Give your skin a fresh start!
Step 1. Exfoliate
This is really is the key to everything and why — if you can — we recommend beginning with a professional microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatment. Exfoliation literally removes the outside layers of the skin that are responsible not only for making your skin look dull, dry and wrinkled, but also prevents good absorption of your skin correcting serums and other products.

Step 2. Brighten
Once you’ve cleaned up and cleared out those outer layers, it’s time to infuse your skin with vitamin C and other active ingredients that work together to transform dull and aging skin into bright and beautiful skin.

Step 3. Enhance
An important step for every face over the age of 30 is nightly retinol. As we age, our skin’s natural ability to turnover old skin cells slows down. Retinol helps to keep skin cells turning over so your skin remains soft, supple and vibrant!

Step 4. Boost
Instant brightener, anyone? We like to think of this step as the cherry on top of your skin rejuvenation efforts. It’s a weekly mini-peel that helps to create a clear and even complexion for the ultimate in fresh skin.
