Does the cooler fall weather take a toll on your complexion? Here are five hacks to ensure healthy skin all season long.
There are *so many things* to love about fall. The changing color of the leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and cozy nights by the fire are just a few. One of the downsides of this cozy season, however, is the toll it can take on your complexion. Fortunately, there are a few hacks that can help to keep your skin in good condition all season long. Here are five of them.
HACK #1: Use a hydrating cleanser
Start your skincare routine off on the right foot this fall by switching to a hydrating cleanser. This will ensure that your skin isn’t stripped of the natural oils necessary to keep your skin barrier healthy and functioning optimally. Cream or oil cleansers are a good option.
HACK #2: Switch to a rich moisturizer
Indoor heating and the chill in the air can lead to dry, parched skin. This is why you will need a heavier moisturizer in fall and winter than you would use in summer. Look for ones that contain ingredients such as glycerine, ceramides, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid.
HACK #3: Try a facial oil
Adding a nourishing facial oil to your skincare routine can help keep your skin soft and supple over the cold seasons. Some popular ones when it comes to treating and preventing dry skin include marula oil, argan oil, rosehip seed oil, jojoba oil, and grapeseed oil.
HACK #4: Remember your sunscreen!
Just because it’s cold and cloudy outside doesn’t mean that your skin is safe from harmful UV rays. This is why it’s crucial to apply – and regularly reapply – sunscreen daily. This should be on top of your moisturizer as the last step in your morning skincare routine.
HACK #4: Be mindful of your diet
Healthy skin starts from the inside so what you consume plays a role in its overall well-being and radiance. Make sure you include skin-loving foods rich in fatty acids and antioxidants in your diet. Also, it’s important to keep your body sufficiently hydrated by drinking enough water.
