Just because summer is almost over, doesn’t mean your tan has to fade. You may feel a change in the weather, especially in August, but that doesn’t mean that you need to dread Autumn and won’t have that, “I spent the day at the beach,” look.
Here are five steps on how you can make that transition into fall while keeping that summer glow.
One of the easiest ways to keep your summer glow is to add glow-boosting fruits and veggies to your diet. Popular fall foods are packed with nutrients like beta-carotene’s, found in carrots, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes, can help your complexion out. It’s been scientifically proven that beta-carotene slows down aging by acting as an antioxidant that reduces oxygen damage caused by UV light, pollutions and other environmental hazards like smoking or second hand smoke. To get beta-carotene, add carrots to a salad, or instead of eating chips with dip, replace the chips with carrots. Sweet potatoes and pumpkin also contain vitamin A and antioxidants, which slow down the aging process. There are many ways to eat pumpkin. For starters you can cut off the top, halve, scoop out seeds, cut into quarters, and roast at 350 degrees for 75 to 90 minutes. You can eat alone, or after they cool, you can peel and then puree the flesh in a food processor or blender and make a pumpkin smoothie.
Another way to keep the summer glow in Autumn is to exfoliate weekly. One of the best products out there is from Rodan + Fields called, REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash It cleanses and refines sun-damaged and dull complexions with a multi-mechanism exfoliator.

Dermatologists say that the best time to apply a moisturizer is right after you take a shower or bath. The reason is because the product you use is able to trap some of the water you will still have on your body, no matter how you much you towel-dry yourself, and it will use it to hydrate your skin.
