Fall is a beautiful season, but it is complicated and harsh on your skin. During the fall, the climate tends to change drastically, from hot to cold, to rain, to hail, and back to hot again and from thereon. As seasons changes, the weather conditions and factors do, as well. Our skin will always be prone to the environment’s conditions. Even though the summer’s gone, the Sun rays haven’t and they can still harm your skin in cold weather, if not even more.
Just as you did during the summer, it’s essential to stock up on moisturizing products for the fall. 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. Taking care of yourself includes incorporating good skin healthy habits into your daily routine so that your skin doesn’t get negatively affected.
Skin-care tips for the fall
Here are some great tips and advice on taking care of your skin during the fall, so you avoid skin damage in the long run and prevent wrinkles, fine lines and other skin scars we don’t like.
SPF Daily Moisturizer
Like we mentioned before, even when it doesn’t seem like it, we are constantly exposed to sunray damage. Therefore it is important looking for moisturizers with sun protection or 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. Having a good daily moisturizer is necessary to ensure that your makeup glides on smoothly without any dry, flaky skin getting in the way.
Avoid your skin from drying
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.
Fall tips for lips, hands, feet and nails
The fall weather conditions can easily harm 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.
