Fall is here! Now is the perfect time to get your skin in shape for the cool months ahead. Autumn means decreased humidity in the air, which in effect can affect the skin’s natural PH level. Any imbalance on the skin’s PH can cause the skin to dry and become susceptible to premature aging and even wrinkles! Say it isn’t so.
Where do we go from here? Fall into a good anti aging skin care routine and get a handle on any possible damage caused by summer exposure as well as prepare for the cold winter months. Hey, it’s the season in between, how convenient. Check out these tips to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful throughout seasons.
The cool autumn breeze is crisp and always refreshing, but did you know it can leave you with dry patches of skin. Changes in temperature and humidity can strip moisture from your skin, so it is very important to moisturize every single day… and night if you are up to it. You might want to switch from lotions to body butters for intense moisturization.
Did you know that your skin type may change as the seasons change? During summer some notice that skin gets oilier than usual, and during the fall and winter months skin may get drier than usual. Observe your skin and if you need to change products to adapt to your new skin type, then you might have to do so.
Wear sunscreen whenever possible. Just because it’s not sunny outside does not mean that you have to chuck the sunscreen. Sunscreen is one of the most important product on your skin care arsenal so don’t set it aside. Did you know that the sun’s UV rays can penetrate clouds?
Exfoliate every few days or so. Exfoliating is important as it helps your moisturizer do its job better by opening up clogged pores and allowing the ingredients to penetrate deeper into skin. Sloughing away your skin can also help rejuvenate your dehydrated and sallow looking post summer skin. It’s great to start the fall season with refreshed skin.
Water, water and more water! Drinks lots of water, did I say water too many times? Water you waiting for, get a glass. See what I did there? Apart from your daily skin care routine, one of the best ways to maintain youthful and beautiful skin this autumn is by nourishing yourself from the inside out. Water and antioxidant rich foods are essential in flushing out toxins and fighting free radicals.
Indulge in an anti aging facial treatment once a month. Stubborn dirt and clogged pores that regular exfoliation can’t remove can be fixed by having a regular facial. Plus it’s fun.
Always remember that your skin is always with you. How could you forget that? Great looking skin is a year round commitment. It is very important to take care of your skin no matter what season it may be. Stay younger longer. Did you get that glass of water yet?
