There's plenty to look forward to in fall, but as the seasons shift and the weather becomes cooler, our skin's sensitivity to the environment also shifts. Tighter skin, dry patches, and breakouts brought on by the change of seasons can depress one's skin. No worries; here are some handy recommendations to assist you in making the switch from your summertime to your fall season skincare routine and preparing your skin to feel great once the leaves start to fall.
1. Keep Your Skin Hydrated
The fall season's weather is often fickle. Your skin's moisture content is bound to drop with a decrease in humidity and temperature levels. The resulting dryness can be pretty unpleasant. Because of the increasing dryness, your skin will produce more sebum than usual to keep it supple, leading to outbreaks.
Consume enough water to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and prevent dryness and breakouts. Using more water, hydrating foodstuffs, using a humidifier, and applying moisturizers and serums crafted to retain moisture are all excellent ways to keep your skin lively.
2. Don’t Forget Body Lotion
While facial care may get the most attention, it's essential not to neglect the rest of your body. It's probably a good idea to stock up on body lotion when the hot days of summer give way to the colder days of fall.
Applying the body lotion after a shower is the ideal time to lock in moisture and prevent dry skin. After showering, use lots of body lotion while your skin remains damp. It will aid in moisture retention, preventing you from experiencing dry hands, forearms, elbows, and feet in the winter.
3. Add a Vitamin C Serum to Your Routine
A vitamin C serum is a must-have if you want to reverse the effects of sun damage and keep your skin looking fresh. Moreover, its antioxidant properties help reinforce the skin's protective barrier and stimulate collagen formation.
Using a vitamin C serum in the daytime will provide your skin with enhanced weather protection, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and marks, and make your skin look radiant.
4. Keep Applying Sunscreen
Though the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays are at their peak in the summer, they are always present. Thus, sunscreen should be applied regularly irrespective of the season since it can effectively mitigate the effects of UV radiation, a leading cause of skin cancer's rapid progression and elevation in risk. Keeping a daily SPF 30 sunscreen is strongly advised by skincare professionals.
5. Lips Need Attention Too
If you take care of your lips right when fall arrives, you can avoid having dry, cracked lips later. Always have lip balm on hand, and reapply as needed all day long.
For many people, skincare implies self-love, while for others, it's a preventive step against the changing season. So, don't allow the cold months to prevent you from achieving your skincare pursuits.
