Fall is the season where ‘things change’ – and especially here in Texas, where we seem to transition from a super-sultry and steaming summer to a cold hard winter overnight. And while things are changing – our skin care routine needs to change a bit too – to adjust with the elements. While it might not ‘feel’ like it outside just yet – Fall is upon us and Winter will be here before you know it; and with it will come colder, windier, dryer weather. What does that mean for your skin?
Fend off dry skin: If your skin starts to dry out, try switching to a gentler, ‘non-soap’ cleanser. Also, one that doesn’t ‘foam’ – these cleansers don’t irritate the natural pH levels of your skin to the degree that the soap based ones do. Also, don’t forget to rinse completely.
Add some antioxidants and moisture: This is best done with serums. We love SkinCeuticals Vitamin C Serum, as an antioxidant, and also their hydrating serum. The antioxidant will help protect against the harsher elements of winter, and the hydrating serum will lock in moisture underneath your moisturizer and replenish lost hydration. Trust us, your skin will thank you!
Your lips need extra special care: Don’t forget to use a lip balm, like ALL. THE. TIME. This will protect them from becoming dry and chapped in the cooler, windier weather of winter.
Don’t forget your sunscreen: Even in the dead of the coldest days, it’s still mandatory that you wear sunscreen. The sun’s rays damage your skin regardless of the temperature – so don’t be fooled by cloudier, cooler days.
