When the seasons change, you should make some changes to your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy all year round, too. Here are the updates to make to yours for fall.
Fall is here which means it’s time to make some seasonal changes to your skincare routine to maintain a healthy glow. Here are five that we recommend.
Use a heavier moisturizer
One of the easiest and, arguably, the most necessary changes to make to your cleansing regimen is to switch out your light, summer moisturizer for one with a richer, more nourishing formula. This applies to both your face and the rest of your body, which needs additional moisture to withstand the dry, fall air.
Look for moisturizing ingredients
Some ingredients are better than others when it comes to keeping your skin in check during fall. Ones that deliver a boost of hydration, such as hyaluronic acid, are a great addition to your routine. Ceramides are also a good pick as they help to reinforce your skin’s protective barrier.
Don’t use hot water
This applies to washing your face and body. No, this doesn’t mean you have to cleanse in the cold but lukewarm water is ideal. Water that is piping hot might feel good but can strip the skin of the natural oils it needs to stay moisturized and even aggravate certain conditions.
Apply products to damp skin
If you’ve ever wondered when the best time to apply your lotion and creams is, wonder no more! These products work best when they are applied to skin that is still slightly damp after a quick towel-off. This means that they will seal in that moisture for long-lasting hydration.
Don’t forget your lips
The skin on our lips is thinner and, as such, a lot more delicate. This makes it more prone to moisture loss when the air is cold and dry, resulting in dryness and chapping. Prevent this by applying a balm to lock in moisture and shield this skin from the elements.
