In a few days, the temperatures will drop, the air will be more relaxed and our days will start to shorten. The leaves will turn a shade of that majestic golden-brown and soon enough fallen leaves will cover every sidewalk. This is when we know that autumn has arrived in all of its glory; the season of pumpkin spice latte has returned.
And while we celebrate the season that we all love, we need to remember the many struggles that our skin faces at this time of the year. Whether it is dry skin or seasonal breakouts, we have all been there. Do not worry though, with few clever skin remedies and some tweaks to your skincare routine, you can keep your skin feeling healthy and happy as the leaves fall.
We are here to bring you some amazing tips and tricks for your fall skincare routine. These will make the transition into fall a relatively smooth ride for your skin and help repair any damage that may have been caused by the summer sun.
Get a moisturizing cleanser
As the temperatures start to cool down, the humidity levels begin to decrease as well. What this means for your skin is that it will start to lose moisture and start getting rough and dry. We are all familiar with the agony of living with rough skin. So, by merely changing to a more hydrating cleanser, you will be able to prevent this. Nowadays, micellar cleansing waters are super in and are perfect for the job. Not only will they hydrate your skin but willfully act as a barrier against the cold weather.
Go for that skincare booster
As hard as it may be to say bye-bye to summer, we need to be grateful for the time of fall to let our skin repair from the damage caused by the sun, the salt and chlorine. Nothing works better for this than adding a booster to your skincare routine. Not only will this booster bring that extra surge of moisture we desperately need, but it will help to repair the harmful effects of the sun. Include Vitamin C serum to rejuvenate your skin and Hyaluronic acid to bind the moisture.
Use oil-based scrubs
Once or twice a week, it is essential to exfoliate and get rid of the buildup of dead skin. As you transition into fall, make sure that the scrubs and exfoliators that you invest in are oil-based; these have proven to be holy-grail at this time of the year. Not only do they get rid of dead flaky skin, but they also promise to keep your skin supple and hydrated. We suggest that you take the first step into fall with a full-body exfoliation.
Time to switch out those lotions
The arrival of fall means that the light lotions are put away, and heavy cream moisturizers are brought back into action. The cooling air without moisture means that lotions cannot keep the moisture of your skin intact. Creams and face oils are better at creating a barrier than lotions because of their oil content, so they will make sure that less water is lost from the outer layer of your skin.
Take care of your lippies
Taking care of your lips should be an integral part of your fall skincare routine. It does not even take a day to develop dry, chapped lips. Once the lips are cracked, they will take their sweet time getting back into shape. This is why, ladies and gentlemen, having a lovely lip balm with you at all times is a must. Autumn will last a few days, but when winter arrives in full force, your lips should be prepared to meet it head-on. It is advised that the products you use on your lips should be non- petroleum-based. When you start searching for the perfect lip balm, keep this in mind.
All in all, fall is one of the best times of the year, so make sure to enjoy it as much as possible. We ask that you make a few tweaks to your skincare routine so that your skin can relax as well. By following the tips and tricks above, you are all set to welcome fall with open arms.
