The fall is a great time of year after the crazy heat of the summer. The air gets a little crisper with maybe only a couple of hotter days left before the winter starts to set in. It’s time to start getting ready for fire pits, or maybe one last outdoor party, as the leaves fall. With the change of season comes a new set of skin care challenges, which means that your skin care treatment regimen should transition. So how do you make sure your skin will look beautiful through the autumn and into the winter?
Keep Your Skin Moisturized To Prepare for Winter Dryness
As the weather starts to cool down and fall settles in, the air starts to get a little drier before the really dry winter season comes. Your skin can be prepared for the winter weather with moisturizers meant to keep your skin from drying out. For a complete skin care regimen, combine an oil-free, lightweight day moisturizer with an intensive nighttime moisture cream to keep skin fresh any time. A skin care treatment regimen that also includes anti aging and anti wrinkle products should mean no skipping of day or nighttime treatments. Keeping the skin constantly hydrated will effectively combat fine lines and wrinkles. Since it’s dehydration that ultimately causes wrinkles look severe, making sure that you’re moisturized as the air dries out is essential.
Antioxidants and Gentle Acne Treatments Repair Summer Damage
It’s hard to get away from the sun, which means that inevitably your skin will get damaged at some point, regardless of your skin care regimen. If you’ve been doing some summer travelling, you’ve probably experienced some travel stress as well as exposure to pool and beach chemicals and pollutants. In fact, during the summer, we’re all exposed to more rays from the sun than we are during the cooler months when we all tend to spend more time indoors. Antioxidant-rich skin care products will repair sun damage from the summer and will be a preventative product moving forward. Those individuals with acne-prone skin should be in the habit of using the right kind of acne treatment products year round, because many people fall out of habit during the carefree days of summer.
Lips and Eyes Need Protection, Too
Because of the onset of dry winters, don’t forget about your lips and eyes in your fall skin care regimen. Your eyes can be impacted by autumn and winter dryness because they don’t produce oil or moisture like the rest of the face, so make sure you’re using a moisturizing eye treatment cream for your eyes. Your lips can also be affected by the dry air of winter, so applying a lip treatment or lip balm will keep your lips moisturized.
Fall is a beautiful season, and you want beautiful skin for it (as well as for the upcoming winter holiday months). Adjust your skin care routine to compensate for the drier air and the skin and sun damage that you may have absorbed during the summer to glow all autumn long!
