Between the temperature changing, the humidity decreasing and the indoor heating on blast our skin can take a beating. It’s important to take a look at what products we are using and make the necessary tweaks in order to get our skin ready for the colder weather ahead.
Book your facial appointment
It’s always a good idea to have a fall facial booked to help your skin transition from summer to fall and to get some help in choosing the proper products needed to make that transition as seamless and pleasant as possible.
In the summer months we tend to be a little more relaxed about our skincare routine. Along with back to school, fall brings “back to our normal routines” and this should definitely include our skincare!
In some cases people don’t need to make any changes when it comes to cleansers and different seasons but for a lot of people it’s a must. It can be as simple as switching from a foam or gel cleanser to a cleansing milk and toner combo which is something that will bring immediate comfort to the skin.
If your skin tends to get irritated easily you will want to switch to gentle exfoliating product and avoid harsh scrub type products that could further irritate the skin. It’s important to exfoliate year round because you want optimal results from your serums and creams and that won’t happen if your products are sitting on top of a layer dead skin cells.
It’s time to go from a light weight moisturizer to something a bit richer to give you more hydration and protection. If you’re not already using a serum this is a great time to start! Serums offer extra moisture along with many other benefits depending on the type without feeling “icky” on the skin. For those who get really dry and your skin seems to drink everything up, the addition of a drop of two of a nutritive oil in your moisturizer could be a great option for you.
Just because you’re not spending all day at the beach, by the pool or gardening in your backyard for hours doesn’t mean you should ditch your sun care products! The sun is still very powerful through the fall and winter months so make sure to continue using your sun care.
