Now I can give you a fully customized recommendation based on your skin!
Let's dive in!
I'm going to start by giving you a few simple things that you can start doing right now. Then after that I'll tell you which product types and ingredients you should be using!
1. STRICT SUN PROTECTION
Limit your sun exposure as much as possible and use an SPF... Every. Single. Day.
2. EAT FOODS THAT CONTAIN BETA CAROTENE
Beta carotene can make your skin more flexible and it can reduce sun-related damage (aka dark/age spots). This ingredient is included in lots of skincare products, but another easy way to get it is by eating certain foods.
By eating a portion of kale, carrots, or sweet potatoes every day you'll be able to slowly reduce the appearance of dark spots and other signs of aging!
3. DRINK WATER OR COCONUT WATER
You've heard this over and over again, but make sure you're staying hydrated, especially after exercising.
This alone can have a huge impact on how healthy your skin looks. If you really don't like drinking plain water, then try drinking coconut water instead!
Now, onto the product types and ingredients...
PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS YOU SHOULD BE USING
There are two things that you really need to focus on when choosing products: the main ingredient and the product type. Your skincare success will depend on choosing those two things correctly.
Luckily, now that I know all about your skin, I can tell you exactly what you need! Here you go...
YOUR PRODUCT TYPE... EXFOLIATOR
Based on your skin profile and the goals you want to achieve, I recommend you use a specialized exfoliator at least twice per week.
However, in your case, the ingredients you use will make a much bigger difference than the product type.
This is the ingredient you need to focus on...
YOUR INGREDIENT... PUMPKIN
There are a handful of ingredients that you should incorporate, but the right pumpkin based product will give you the fastest results in the healthiest way possible.
Pumpkin is an incredibly effective way to brighten skin. It works quickly to give you back your natural glow and diminish dark spots on your face.
The only caveat is that you have to be consistent! Use your pumpkin based exfoliator at least twice per week! Trust me, after the first few weeks you'll never look back.
Here's something you should remember though...
When it comes to skin care, time is of the essence.
The longer you let your skin go without the proper treatment, the worse those problems will become and the harder they are to fix later on down the road.
The best thing you can do is implement these changes right away! Put those three tips above into practice today, and find a pumpkin based exfoliator.
I've been an esthetician for over 13 years and I have a line of specialty skin care products that I formulated to target very specific needs. I do offer an Exfoliating Pumpkin Mask that would work for you if you're interested!
