How To Extend Glowing Summer Skin Into Fall

Talking Makeup is excited to share with you tips on how to extend glowing summer skin into fall by anti-aging Expert Dr. Adrienne Denese.


• It is important to get rid of dead skin cells; they are what make your skin look dead and old. They have a rough texture so they block out skin’s natural radiance and that natural glow
• If you self tan, you need a freshly exfoliated canvas. Otherwise the self tan will come out to be blotchy. This applies for face and body alike.
• Many of us use minimal make up in the summer so we can’t hide dull, sallow, tired looking skin anymore.
