Transitioning from summer skincare to fall skincare is important because the changing weather conditions can affect your skin's needs. As the temperatures cool down and the air becomes drier, you may need to adjust your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Here are some tips to help you transition from summer to fall skincare:
Hydration is key: As the air becomes drier, it's important to focus on keeping your skin hydrated. Switch to a thicker, richer moisturizer that provides extra hydration. Look for products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and glycerin, which help to lock in moisture, like our Youth Restore Firming Ceramide Cream. Remember to also hydrate your skin from the inside out by drinking plenty of water and maintaining a healthy diet. A well-hydrated body will reflect in the health of your skin.
Exfoliate: Exfoliation is still important during the fall, so opt for chemical exfoliators like AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) or BHAs (beta hydroxy acids), which help to remove dead skin cells and promote a brighter complexion. Now that the sun is less intense, its the perfect time to take exfoliation to the next level and perform a series of chemical peels! Take our quiz to find the perfect peel for you.
Add nourishing serums: Introduce serums into your skincare routine to address specific concerns. Look for serums with ingredients like vitamin C, which can help brighten your skin and repair damage from the summer’s UV exposure, or hyaluronic acid, which provides deep hydration.
Protect your skin: Although the sun's intensity may decrease during the fall, it's still essential to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Continue using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, especially if you spend time outdoors. Choose a moisturizer with SPF to combine hydration and sun protection.
Consider a facial oil: Facial oils can be beneficial during the fall to help seal in moisture and provide extra nourishment to the skin. Choose oils that are non-comedogenic and suitable for your skin type. Apply a few drops of facial oil after moisturizing, or mix a drop or two with your moisturizer for added hydration.
Don't forget your lips and hands: With cooler weather, your lips and hands may also require extra care. Use a hydrating lip balm to prevent dryness and chapping. For your hands, keep a moisturizing hand cream with you and apply it regularly throughout the day.
Remember that everyone's skin is different, so it's important to listen to your skin's needs and adjust your routine accordingly. By making these adjustments and providing your skin with the necessary care, you can help keep it healthy and radiant throughout any season.
