We can’t believe how fast this year is moving! With summer coming to an end and fall right around the corner, we can expect cooler days ahead of us. With changes in the weather, it’s time to start transitioning to our fall skincare routine. We wanted to share our skin survival tips that can help prevent sudden dry skin and outbreaks that often occur during seasonal change. Transition into the fall season smoothly by following these five steps.
Switch Up Your Cleanser
As the seasons change, so does the climate. Just like replacing your summer dresses with your winter warmers, it’s good to change your skincare products to accommodate the seasonal change. For instance, gel and foaming cleansers are great for deep cleaning, especially during the hot summer days. However, these cleansers may be a bit drying during the fall season. A good rule-of-thumb is to take a look at how your skin reacts to colder weather versus warmer weather. We recommend plant-based skincare brands like Eminence Organic Skin Care, who offers a wide range of unique formulations that contain hydrating ingredients for the upcoming fall season.
Try a Heavier Moisturizer
For most skin types, a lightweight moisturizer is enough during the summer. However, as the weather beings to cool down and the air becomes drier, you may want to amp up your moisturizer to combat dry skin and lock in moisture to protect it.
Protect Your Skin With SPF
Yes, you heard us right. Regardless of the seasonal change, you should always make efforts to protect your skin from the sun. Many people have the misconception that the sun isn’t as harmful during the fall and winter seasons, but this is not accurate. The sun may not be beaming as much as it does during the summer, but the UV rays remain relatively consistent. That’s why it’s crucial to have proper suncare protection that can last you year-round. We recommend trying the Bright Skin Moisturizer from Eminence Organics Skin Care. This nourishing formula is rich in essential vitamins and minerals that help protect skin from the sun while also keeping it hydrated. This leaves you with a smooth, radiant complexion.
Exfoliation becomes imperative during the cooler times to repair and brighten your complexion. It’s also essential for reducing breakouts, removing dead skin cells and boosting the skin’s natural renewal cycle. We recommend our Exfoliating Body Buff for silky, smooth skin. This pillow-soft body buff helps re-texture the skin’s surface, promote improved clarity, even tone and smoothness. Don’t forget to check out our Exfoliating Face Buff as well!
Lastly, if all else fails and you need a little extra help to maintain your skin during the seasonal change, come to The Wax Shop for a relaxing, rejuvenating facial treatment. While we offer a range of facial services, we recommend trying our Microdermabrasion Treatment during the colder seasons as this procedure brings forth new skin by removing the outermost layer of the skin. Additionally, this facial treatment removes the dull surface, stimulating an increase in collagen, cleans out clogged pores, and improves the overall tone, texture, and color of the skin.
Don’t let seasonal change bring you down this year and include these steps in your daily skincare routine for a smooth transition from summer to the upcoming fall and winter seasons.
