It’s September and nothing throws your skincare routine into a frenzy like changing seasons. Early fall can be especially difficult considering you’re still dealing with humidity, but also starting to feel dryness from the cool fall air at night.
How do you know when your skin is ready for a seasonal change? Look for these signs to know when its time to ditch summer skincare and start prepping for fall!
When the temperatures start to drop at night, dry air can be destructive towards your skin. The first sign of fall are those cool evenings and while they may seem like a welcome break from the heat, it’s actually drying your skin out. You’ll notice flakes of skin appearing on your face by your hairline, nose, chin or jawbones.
Fighting flakey skin is as easy as keeping it hydrated with a powerful moisturizer and using it every morning and night. Twice a day application will help keep dullness and flakey skin at bay while allowing for your skin to absorb all the hydration and nutrition it’s been craving.
Going between dry and humid weather daily can throw your skin into turmoil and cause some serious breakouts. When your body changes from cold to sweating, and then back again, it can cause the dry, dead skin builds on your face and then locks in sweat and oil when you’re feeling warmer again. This will cause your pores to clog and produce some of the worst breakouts you can imagine.
To avoid this, keep your skins pH balance even by using an oil-based cleanser. It will help protect your skin from the extremes and keep it soft and supple, no matter which way the temperature goes. It also helps clear away dead skin and dirt out of pores to reduce your chances of breakouts and keep skin looking flawless!
Does your skin feel more sensitive than usual? Signs of sensitivity can show up as redness, tenderness or bumps on your face and they can be caused by something as simple as changes in the air. Don’t stress, sensitive skin doesn’t have to be permanent and there are some simple steps you can use to make sure you’re protected.
Using a water-based moisturizer twice a day is going to minimize your risk of sensitivity and help to diminish and redness or tenderness you might feel in your skin. There are also anti-microbial properties in our Olive Oil Cleanser that will help clear out any bacteria and dirt that could be leading to your skin’s sensitivity.
