The season of cozy knits and pumpkin spice is almost upon us. And you know what that means? It is time to talk skin. Along with the cool, crispy weather, fall also brings with it a sharp drop in humidity, which results in dry air and even drier skin. And if you are not careful, you can end up with a host of skin issues, ranging from itchiness and dullness to eczema. This is why before the temperature starts to dip, you need to reassess and recalibrate your skincare routine. In fact, it is always a good idea to switch up your skincare with the changing seasons. Even seemingly small alterations can make a huge difference. That said, here are a few tips to transition your skincare routine from summer to fall:
With the end of summer, the air loses its moisture content that would otherwise help keep your skin hydrated. And that is precisely why you need to double up on hydration – from head to toe. In addition to your regular face creams and moisturizers, you should also use a body lotion that can provide your skin with a protective barrier, thus allowing it to retain the moisture and also draw it past the outer layer of the skin.
Fall may not be the sunniest season but that is no reason for you to skip the SPF. The sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate not just clouds but also the windows of your house and car – contributing to fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of aging. This is why you should always wear sunscreen, no matter if you are outdoors or indoors. Apply it on all exposed areas of your body.
As we have mentioned before, the fall weather can be quite drying on your skin. And the best way to deal with that is to use skincare products that contain hydrating ingredients. For instance, our Fall Gift Box comes with body and bath products that are made from pumpkin, aloe vera, oats, apple cider, and an assortment of other such ingredients. Such products are specially formulated to help your skin remain moisturized, nourished, soft, and supple.
