Medical Aesthetician Explains 5 Ways to Improve Your Skincare Routine for the Fall!
Change of Season, Change in Skincare.
Fall is not only lovely because of the vibrant foliage and delightfully crisp weather, but it also gives us plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming chilly turmoil. (If you’re a winter person, none of our hyperbolic thinking will apply to you).
It’s possible that the summer’s activities have left your complexion a bit worse for wear. Although we still have some warm days remaining, the beauty about this part of the year is that we still have time before we dive headfirst into the heavier moisturisers and balms that will be required throughout the winter months. Yes, we’re talking about fixing the skin concerns you face and starting over with your new skincare regimen for fall, but we’re also talking about getting ready for the cooler weather by switching out some essential products. It’s truly a simple transition, and we’re here to take the stress out of it for you.
Lastly, remember that if you have been putting off using some of your more reactive products (think: retinols, acids, and the like) because you have increased your time in the sun, now may be the time to reach for them again — and to atone for any summer skin misdeeds.
As a result, when it comes to fall skincare, what are the must-have items to keep on hand? We went directly to the source — in this case, the aestheticians and skin specialists who treat multiple faces daily — to find out which components are the must-haves of the season, why they adore them, and how to incorporate them into your routine.
1. Remember to moisturize!
To keep your skin moisturised, you should switch up your heavier moisturisers, Vitamin C complexes, and eye treatments for puffiness and dryness according to the season. Adding a slightly thicker or creamier moisturiser to your routine might help to give your skin a much-needed boost if you’re experiencing excessive dryness.
Cleaning your complexion should be something you do on a regular basis, regardless of the season. You may also experiment with applying a serum to infuse your skin with additional nutrients as you sleep.
2. Time for SPF... Duh!
Using sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun should not be limited to simply going to the beach; it should be worn all year round, in every weather condition. Because UV damage can occur even when there is cloud cover, it is important to continue to apply SPF under your makeup and to any exposed regions of the skin when outside. At the very least, SPF 15 is recommended!
3. Ding Ding Ding! You guessed it.. It’s OILS!
Well… Rosehip Oil to be more precise.
This is the one thing that you absolutely must have this season. Unlike other facial oils, our Rose Hips Nourishing Oil is a lightweight, yet moisture-intensive composition that helps to rejuvenate and smooth dry skin, unlike most other facial oils.
Rosehip Extract, a naturally occurring source of vital fatty acids and the antioxidant Vitamin C, brightens dull skin while also moisturising any dry spots, revealing softer, more vibrant skin as a result!
4. Don’t forget about your Hands!
If you’re concerned about feeling sticky or greasy after applying hand cream, don’t be. Even though cream has texture, use Hand Cream with Vitamin E that has a fast-absorbing formula that sinks in quickly to provide intense moisture without leaving a greasy residue.
Antioxidant oils nourish dehydrated skin while also smoothing the appearance of fine lines, resulting in silky-soft hands that last all day. A dream come true.. we know!
5. And lastly, Invest in YOURSELF!
Skincare is not only about the products you use on your face! Investing in various products that can help introduce moisture into the air or directly into a troubled area may be a good option for certain people inFall. A humidifier, for example, can be particularly beneficial if you wake up with tight or cracked skin in the morning.
In the event that your nails become brittle or your cuticles begin to show symptoms of discomfort, using cuticle oil or moisturising polish may be advised. A silk pillowcase can also assist to prevent split ends and cracks in your hair, as well as decrease skin irritation caused by potentially abrasive fabrics such as microfiber and polyester.
Winter is coming… But at least you’re all set for Fall!
