How to Handle End of Summer Skin

Christina Najjar | September 3, 2019 | Lifestyle

Summer can be tough on the skin. Sun exposure, lots of travel and endless late nights with too much rose can lead to looking a little tired come Labor Day. But fear not, this does not doom you to a dull complexion for all of the fall months. On the contrary, seasons changing is the right time to switch up your routine, incorporate new products and maximize your summer glow from the inside out.

Get a Treatment


Camellia Zheng, the lead medical aesthetician at Tribeca MedSpa suggests getting a treatment to perk up your poor face after months of beach days. “End of summer season can result in clogged pores, dull dry skin and hyperpigmentation from too much sun exposure,” Zheng told us. “Multi mask facial and CBD Detox facials can clean, detox and repair tired and clogged skin. This treatment combines dermaplaning, infusion of antioxidants in a customized facial. These facials area great treatments for all skin type resulting in a beautiful and healthy glow.”

Zheng also recommends stem cell therapy which can give your skin a major boost. “Stem Cell therapy is another great option. We prepare the skin by Dermaplaning followed by AnteAge stem cell. Stem cell contains growth factors and hyaluronic acid that can help reduce inflammation, heal and promote rapid rehydration. These treatments are to help detox, repair and rehydrate the skin and there is little to no downtime.”

Eat to Glow


Food is a major key to glowing skin, so why not snack smartly? SMPL is a healthy snack with wellness benefits in one. SMPL Bites satisfy cravings, nourish and offer mood support morning, noon and night. This is functional snacking at its best. The Beauty Bites are formulated to help stimulate natural collagen production and improve overall complexion. Beautify with bites during a morning latte, after yoga, or in-between meals. Chewy chocolate crunch bites have collagen peptides in each pack. Collagen has proven powerful effects, including reducing wrinkles and improving skin, hair and nails.

Ditch the Sugar


After a summer of ice creams, do your skin a favor and ditch the sugar with the help of celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak. Pasternak, (who works with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Robert Downey Jr. and more), recently founded Sweetkick. Pasternak wanted to give people the tools they need to change sugar-steeped eating habits and in totality, address an exponentially growing refined-sugar epidemic, all starting with something as easy as a mint.

With key ingredients Inulin from Chicory root and Indian herb Gymnema Sylvestre that suppress the taste of sweetness in sugary foods, The Reset is a program designed to help kickstart a low-sugar lifestyle by rebuilding healthier habits. The Reset includes powders, mints and Pasternak’s Food Mentor Guide which provides consumers with a list of foods to eat, regulate and avoid to proactively increase healthy fats, proteins and fibers while reducing unnecessary sugars.
