Do you feel that chill in the air? The leaves are about to start falling and that means its time to start transitioning your routine to fit the seasons. The weather affects your skin in so many ways and you want to make sure that you’re one step ahead of Mother Nature to fight signs of dryness, aging and to repair some of the damage that summer sun can cause.
Switch To A Thick Moisturizer
Say goodbye to those lightweight, oil-free moisturizers! Now is the time to ditch your summer skin care because you’re no longer fighting sweat and humidity. Instead, your new job is to make sure that the temperature drop doesn’t completely dehydrate your skin leaving it flakey and dull.
For fall, use a moisturizer that has a focus on hydrating ingredients, like our Repair & Release Cream. It’s packed with nourishing ingredients like grape seed oil, shea butter, and vitamin E which all help protect your skins moisture barrier. Say goodbye to dry, cracking skin and hello to a youthful glow!
Cut Back On Exfoliation
When your skin gets drier, exfoliation can actually tear your skin leaving you with flakey and dull looking face. This is the time of year where your skin needs lots of extra love as it transitions to cold weather and over exfoliation can completely backfire causing your dryness to become even worse.
To keep your skin safe from over exfoliation, make sure you transition to exfoliating only once a week. This should keep your skin safe and flake free and if you do find that you need more exfoliation, you can slowly work your way up to twice or three times a week which will give it time to adjust to your new routine and the new temperatures outside.
I designed my Olive Oil Cleanser with this in mind, it’s gentle on your skin but still cleans impurities and toxins from your skin. It’s a perfect solution to be used through the autumn months that won’t dry out your skin or cause cracking.
Watch Out For Your Makeup
When the temperature drops, any exposed skin can be at risk to excess dryness and since it’s not quiet glove season, your hands may be taking the hit. It’s important to make sure to throw a moisturizer in your bag so that you can always keep your hands hydrated, even on the go.
Want your hand cream to pull double duty? Opt for using an anti-aging moisturizer on your hands like my Repair and Release Cream. Hands can give away your age as much as your face can so you can combat signs of aging and get that much-needed boost of moisture all with one product.
