As the seasons change, so does our skin. With fall comes cooler temps, a drop in humidity and the re-appearance of our portable heaters. What does this mean for your skin?? Yep, you guessed it. Unwanted dryness, sensitivity and inflammation.
Here are a few tips + adjustments you can prepare to make to help transition your skincare routine from the hot + humid months of summer to the cooler, grounded vibes of fall.
Switch to thickkk:
As the air gets drier, you may begin to notice that your skin feels drier too. This is where your go-to lightweight & oil-free summer moisturizer may not be your best fit. Swapping for a heavier face cream made with hydrating ingredients like squalene and avocado oil will not only provide an instant surge of moisture, but will also add *extra* protection to your skin barrier.
Try Osea Advanced Protection Cream
Mask while you sleep:
This simple step will be the ultimate upgrade to your nightly regimen. Because, who doesn’t want to wake up with plump + hydrated skin? Before bed, give yourself a good cleanse, drench your skin with your fave anti-inflammatory hydrosol and apply a hydrating, gel-based mask – all over! Your skin will thank you for the boost of hydration as it regenerates overnight. Use 1-3x a week for best results.
Try Botnia Soothing Repair Mask
Welcome to the lineup, Vitamin A:
So, you successfully cut back on exfoliation during the summer months. Check! With future days spent cozied up in front of your fireplace, your skin is much better suited to handle a little *more* turnover. Natural sources of Vitamin A assist in cellular reproduction, meaning it helps say ‘buh-bye’ to those rough, dry patches and allows your hydrating products to penetrate deeper into the skin!
Try Tata Harper Retinoic Facial Oil
Reach for a facial oil:
If you are still hesitant to introduce an oil into your routine, now is the perfect time to do so! The combo of cooler temps and exposure to central heating can very well mean your daily moisturizer may not be enough to combat dryness. Facial oils are great at nourishing dehydrated skin, delivering vital fatty acids deep into the skin and sealing in that much-needed moisture.
Try Living Libation Best Skin Ever Seabuckthorn
Don’t forget our favorite 3 letters – S-P-F:
While it may seem logical to stow away your fav sunscreens upon the departure of summer, think twice before you do! If you plan on spending any time outdoors, sunscreen is *still* a must. Your daily walk for a fresh cup of joe, taking the dog to the beach, stocking up at the farmers market – these activities add up to incremental exposure and can have a cumulative effect that can result in premature aging. A nontoxic SPF really is a year-round must!
