After a season of hot and dry weather in Summer, there are other things you probably did that ended up affecting your skin, as well. Repeated sun exposure, heavy drinking, bad eating and other things have undoubtedly taken the toll on your skin. Remember that Sun exposure depletes collagen. The sun makes collagen break down, damaging its suppleness and promoting early aging.
Also, as seasons change, the weather conditions and factors do, as well. Our skin will always be prone to the environment’s conditions. Taking care of yourself includes incorporating good skin healthy habits into your daily routine so that your skin doesn’t get negatively affected. Today, we give you some good useful tips to taking care of your skin during the fall.
Advice to taking care of your skin during Fall
Good adequate cleanser and an Oil-Based Scrub
In the summer, fruity shower gels are more popular, but you have to check that your current cleanser isn’t going to dry out your skin in cold weather. In the fall and winter, it’s best to use creamy body washes. Also, an oil based scrub is perfect for fall and winter because you are getting the exfoliating benefits with the extra bonus of hydrating oils.
Daily Moisturizer with SPF
Using a daily moisturizer with at least SPF 30 will help you keep your skin moist and tight, and protect you from sun damage. Remember that even though Summer’s gone, the Sun rays haven’t and they can still harm your skin in cold weather, if not even more. Having a good daily moisturizer is necessary to ensure that your makeup glides on smoothly without any dry, flaky skin getting in the way.
Sun and pool’s chlorine can severely damage your lips and leave them cracked and dry. Use a lip balm with concentrated moisture or a medicated one. You can also use a gentle lip scrub to smooth out your lips to leave them soft and supple. Your hands might have also suffered a little from the Summer roughness, so make sure to get them in a healthier state by using a hand cream with sunscreen. Pamper your feet with a powerful moisturizer, as well. And don’t forget about your nails. Besides getting a pedi and a mani, rub organic avocado oil on your cuticles for great results. Other oils you can get at a great price are jojoba, rosehip and argan oil.
Cold weather skincare products
It’s essential to stock up on moisturizing products for the fall, the same as you did for Summer. Don’t mistakenly think, as many people do, that now that you’re out of constant sun exposure you won’t be needing as much sunscreen and moisturizer as you did before. By addressing damaged or undernourished skin now, you’ll prepare your skin for the cold weather around the corner. Apply body lotion right after every shower to keep your skin hydrated and keep a constant rotation of lip balms in your purse, bedside table and workplace.
