Leaves are falling, the sun is fading and the air smells like rain… the changing season is not only changing the view, but also the skincare choices we make.

Fall is a wonderful season, a time for reflection, slowing down and getting back on track after a fierce summer. As the season change, so should your skincare routine. Lucky for us, Dead Sea minerals have special nutrients that nourish the skin, and help restore its natural balance.

Mineral Skincare

To achieve a healthy looking skin, it is important to adjust your skincare routine according to the changing weather. During the fall it’s recommended to exfoliate the skin at least once a week to get rid of any dead skin cells accumulated over the summer.  Also, since the fall air is drier then summer, you might want to switch to a slightly heavier moisturizer, which will nourish your skin with extra moisturizers.  Jericho’s Exfoliating Facial Mask exfoliates and renews the skin in minutes, thanks to the natural grains blended with aromatic oils and Dead Sea minerals. This concentrated blend of Walnut Shell Powder, Jojoba Oil and Chamomile Extract helps rejuvenate your complexion and makes the skin soft and silky. You should also try Jericho Pearl Mask, which offers deep nourishment and is wonderful during fall and winter time. The Pearl Mask helps restore hydration while softening your skin, so you might use it at least twice a week (and even 3 times if you have dry skin).

Mineral Hair Care

The dry whether affects our hair as well; a haircut is the healthiest way to get read of those summer splits and dead ends. Now is the perfect time to revive your hair by treating it with care. Jericho Mineral Hair Mask for dry hair is especially recommended, since it is enriched with Dead Sea salt and Jojoba oil. The mask strengthens your hair and keeps it shiny and healthy, while returning the moisture, softness and volume to the hair.

Update Your Makeup

When switching from summer to fall, there are a few things you need to do about your makeup. First, go through your makeup and toss away old foundation, sponges and other products that can be contaminated by bacteria. Second, get yourself a heavier, more elegant foundation and invest in a good concealer.  You won’t believe the difference a concealer can make, just by hiding some of the under-eye circles.

Makeup shades depend mostly on fashion trends and you personal complexion, but make sure to adjust your colors to more season appropriate colors, like deep purple, luscious red, and grey. Also change your sheer summer lip gloss with creamier lipsticks.

Jericho Skincare Tip: When using bold colors remember to keep a balance and not over do it- if you’re highlighting the eyes use a nude shade on your lips and vice versa.

With Wedding season at its’ pick, learning how to apply the perfect makeup is essential. Every one of us has their own makeup likes and dislikes, but we do have one thing in common: we all want to apply our makeup on clear, flawless skin.

When it comes to makeup, sometimes less is more. Another truth about wearing makeup is that the older you get the less you should apply. It might sound ironic- what does a twenty year old really need makeup for, when her skin is naturally tight and shiny? Well, good question. The logic behinds it lays in the fact that as you get older, you skin loses some of its natural elastin and tends to wrinkle. Applying too much makeup may cause your skin to look over treated and enhance all its imperfections. So the key here is balance and maintenance.

Just Before Applying Your Makeup

For your skin to be tight and firm we recommend a few skincare regimens:

Make sure your skin is clean: Use a peel off mask to get a thorough exfoliation and remove dead cells that are clogging the pores. Jericho Mineral Peel-Off Mask accelerates the assimilation of nutrients by the cells, which results in increased blood circulation.

After rinsing the skin, apply toner to clear your skin from any oily residues. Minerals and plant extracts from the Dead Sea make Jericho’s Skin Toner a must-have when looking to get rid of makeup residue and impurities. Our skin toner is formulated with a combination of aloe and natural Dead Sea minerals, to give you a complete cleansing.

Now you are ready for serum that will firm your skin, and help to avoid makeup smudges. Jericho’s Dead Sea Mineral Serum is designed to firm the skin, and to make your skin silky and smoother, making you feel luminous.  The anti-aging components, vitamins and Dead Sea minerals reveal a refreshing glow that will leave you breathless.

At this point, you should apply your regular moisturizer, after which your skin is ready for makeup. Make sure not to apply too much moisturizer and to wait until it is well absorbed into the skin before applying your makeup.

When Removing Makeup

Usually at this point we are tired and can’t wait to go to bed, however this is a very important stage of skincare. Makeup residue may cause your pores to clog and can prevent your skin from breathing.

One quick and wonderful option is to use Jericho’s Makeup Removing Facial Wipes, which removes makeup and dirt from your face and eyes, all while protecting the moisture and elasticity of the skin. These Makeup Removing Facial Wipes include natural Chamomile and Aloe, leaving skin looking young and healthy.

You can complete the makeup removing process by using Jericho’s Dead Sea Cleanser. It opens up the pores, thoroughly removing makeup residue and impurities, while leaving you feeling refreshed.

On An Everyday Basis

Make sure your skin is well nourished. Jericho Intensive Night Crème does wonders to replenish and restore skin. Dead Sea minerals and plant extracts absorb quickly and leave you with a silky soft feeling. Significantly reduce fine lines and wrinkles while sleeping, Intensive Night Cream from Jericho is ideal to apply prior to sleep. Remove makeup and apply after Jericho Skin Toner, to react and reinvigorate your skin.
