Summer may have come and gone, but it’s just as important to take care of your skin in the fall. These skin care tips will help you maintain a beautiful complexion in the brisk autumn weather.
Rid your shelf of drying skin care products
Alcohol-based toners and astringents, cleansers with harsh detergents and other drying skin care products will do you no good in the dry autumn air. Replace your oil-robbing summer skin care products with moisturizers like aloe vera with witch hazel to tone your skin. Additionally, purchase cleansers with gentle ingredients like soy milk.
Moisturize your skin
Moisturizing your skin is even more important in the autumn as the weather turns cold and dry. To keep dry skin at bay, it’s necessary to hydrate your skin on a daily basis. The best time to apply lotion or moisturizer is immediately after you have dried off after a shower or bath. An all-natural daily moisturizer, containing natural oils like avocado oil, is ideal for fall, since it hydrates the skin and increases its elasticity.
Analyze your skin
You may notice that your skin type changes as the seasons change and the weather turns colder and dryer. Those with oily skin might consider their skin more normal, while those with normal skin notice their skin is now dry. Watch your skin to check if you need to switch up your skin care products. If you’re unsure, speak with a consultant at a cosmetics counter. They will ask simple questions to see what skin care type you fall in during the fall months.
Keep using SPF
Many people consider SPF products only necessary as part of a good summer skin care routine. On the contrary, SPF is important year round. You may not be lying on the beach in the cold autumn months, but you’re still getting sun and it’s therefore important to apply sunscreen just as frequently.
If you dislike the pastiness of sunscreen, you can simply use natural oils, which are scientifically proven to have SPF properties. Natural oils both prevent dryness and protect the skin from the sun’s UV rays. Use a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 and reapply with facial sunscreen throughout the day.
Drink water and maintain a healthy diet
Essential for a radiant complexion in all seasons, water is just as important during the fall months as it is in the summer.
You should also make sure to nourish your skin with a proper diet. When it comes to preventing dry skin and acne, your diet is significant. What you eat contributes to the health of your body as well as the health of your skin.
