Fall is here and
it is time to transition! All the crop
tops, shorts, and bikinis are walking in a single file line into the closet
while the fall and winter clothes are making an entrance. Autumn is great for turtlenecks, scarves,
hats, petticoats, and thigh high boots; however, the icy winds and cold
temperatures dry out the skin. Combine
the cold winds with dry air from radiators and you have a disaster waiting to
happen. Skin loses moisture during the
cold seasons which can cause flakiness, irritation, and sensitivity. And you can’t take cute selfies when all you
want to do is scratch your face. Changing
up your skincare routine is necessary to keep your skin looking healthy, young,
and smooth. Here are some essentials for
everyday fall beauty.
Thickness to the Mix
It is time to
ditch the light moisturizers and start shopping for heavier creams. Using a thicker moisturizer compensates for
the natural moisture the skin loses.
According to dermatologists, using a thick cream with ceramides, lipids
that help form the skin’s barrier, and retain skin moisture, helps keep your
skin hydrated and firm.
Bat the Eyes
and Pout the Lips
If you are not
already moisturizing your lips and using eye cream, then its time to
start. Using eye creams and lip balms
make it easier to keep the face looking together. The skin does not do well when the seasons
transition. Make it easier by using lip
balms and eye creams to make sure the whole face is hydrated. Also, lip balms have dual usage; us the lip
balm to moisturize dry spots on your skin.
Put away the
Now that the
weather is changing, so should your use of exfoliates. You don’t need to use exfoliates as frequent
as you would in the summer and spring. After
using a scrub, the skin becomes raw and sensitive. Exposed skin in a cold setting in a recipe for
disaster. Use a softer exfoliate bi-weekly
and don’t forget to put a balm on afterwards.
Don’t you dare put
away that SPF 50! The sun is still
bright in the sky and your skin is still in danger of getting burned. The sun might not feel as smoldering as it
does in the summer, however, it can still damage the skin. In addition to using SPF, add vitamin C to
your regime. Vitamin C blocks the sun
rays that sunscreen does not and helps boost collagen production in the skin.
known to boost hydration by adding moisture to the air. The more moisture added to the air, the more
it will share with your skin.
And these are the
essentials when transitioning to fall skincare.
