With fall comes the perfect time to reset your skin. Fall can bring unpredictable weather patterns – heat and humidity followed by cooler, windy, and dryer days. Skin concerns like dry, cracked skin or blemishes tend to show up, signaling that is it time to switch up your skin care routine. Keep your skin healthy and hydrated with these easy fall skincare routine tips.
Exfoliate Every Once in A While
Want to boost your glow? Exfoliate! Get rid of the dirt and grime that have accumulated on your skin, as well as dead skin cells, by using an exfoliating scrub on your skin and lips no more than once a week. It will make way for new skin cell growth, boost lymphatic drainage and circulation, and detox your post-summer skin. Just make sure not to overdo it. The most common misconception about exfoliation is that you can physically exfoliate away skin imperfections like hyperpigmentation spots or rough patches. It is especially important to tone down on the exfoliating routine to avoid causing more harm to the skin's natural protective barrier in the fall and winter.
Incorporate Vitamin C
Before embarking on any autumn skin care routine, it is a must to assess the mark summer has left on your skin. Vitamin C aids in the restoration of skin damage caused by summer, like uneven skin tone and overly tanned or sunburnt skin. Using a product with a vitamin C–rich formula can treat the appearance of sun-stressed skin, wrinkles, and fine lines, and it protects skin from free radical damage.
Hydrate with Masks
With the transition from summer to fall to winter comes drier air, which can easily dehydrate your skin. This implies that switching to a heavier moisturizer may not be enough, especially when the cold winds blow and heaters are switched on. Use a hydrating face mask to lock in moisture, especially on those extra blustery fall days.
Not only is a good face mist refreshing, but it can also restore moisture and replenish your skin's hydration levels. It is a quick fix for when your skin is feeling dry and tired throughout the day.
Bring In the Facial Oils
In the summer, facial oils might leave your skin feeling overly heavy and greasy, fall is the perfect time to put them to good use. This is an excellent way to restore moisture balance in dryer months. Pumpkin oil, rosehip oil, and pomegranate oil are some examples of oils that are rich in anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, and have high moisture content. Go for an all-in-one face oil that brightens your skin and balances sebum levels.
