When the seasons change, so should your skincare regimen. It’s important to alter your regular routine to keep beautiful skin year-round. Fall is a great time to recharge and renew your skin!
Follow these tips to keep your skin’s beautiful summer glow as you transition into fall.
How often you wash your face should change with the seasons. During the summer months we’re outside sweating and exposing our skin to the elements, so we should wash our faces more. Washing your face less in the fall will help to keep it from drying out.
Fall and winter weather dries out your skin. Make sure to moisturize every single day! The air is crisp and the wind is harsh on your face, so it’s important to use a heavier solution of moisturizer that’s oil based. Try to use a moisturizer with built in SPF to protect your skin against damaging UV rays.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Exfoliate your skin once a week in order to get rid of any dead or damaged skin leftover from summer. Use products with the smallest beads possible – they aren’t as abrasive as ones with larger beads and crystals.
Avoid Hot Showers
As tempting as it is to take hot showers in the winter months, “bathing in hot water breaks down the lipid barriers in your skin, which causes a loss in moisture.” Instead, opt for a warm shower and try not to stay in for too long.
