Transitioning Into Fall Has Never Been Smoother On Your Skin With Our Top 5 Adjustments
As the air slowly becomes cooler every day and the sun doesn’t shine quite as bright we know Autumn is at our doorstep. We can already feel the comfy sweaters and the soft, fluffy wraps grazing our bodies…. ohh the coziness that awaits. But the wardrobe is not the only thing that has to change with the seasons, our beauty routine has to adjust to the changing climate as well.
We aren’t yet in full freezing weather hibernation mode, but aren’t basking in the sun anymore either, so the right balance has to be reached for the optimal transitional weather skin care routine. Let’s go over the subtle changes we need to make for the Fall:
1 – Adjust for more hydration
Make sure that whatever skin products you are using – cleansers, soaps, lotions and so on, are the more moisturising versions of your summer repertoire.
2 – Adjust the night time routine
Summertime is all about low maintenance beauty but as the autumn falls you have to pick it up a notch! A few new elements need to be added to your bedtime skin routine – make sure to include products containing Vitamin A to replenish hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C which will brighten skin and help in speedy development of new skin cells to replace the old, dehydrated and cracked cells that make up the skin. Which brings us to our next point….
3 – Exfoliate
Exfoliate as much as you need, 2-3 times a week is ideal. Choose an exfoliant that’s right for your skin type, gently massage it into your skin to get rid of dead skin cells and allow for better penetration of skincare products and get glowing, fresh skin!
4 – Time for Face Masks
A great way to give your skin an invigorating boost just when it needs it, is to utilize face masks. There are many to choose from depending on your need – from hydrating, to illuminating, to detoxifying, it’s all out there. You can use them sporadically as needed, or incorporate them into your nightly routine, such as a Vitamin C mask from our 2nd point.
4 – Try At-Home Skin Care Treatments
If you are looking for fast professional grade results to really set yourself up for cooler months or to fix a specific problem, but without the professional grade price than at-home treatments are where its at. Microdermabrasion devices such as Glo-Me, will buff and polish the skin to remove the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells and will clogg pores, they are a stronger more intense version of your regular exfoliation. Skin tightening devices such as Silkn Face FX, will penetrate deep into your skin’s layers to clear, tighten and smooth out imperfections, wrinkles and pores to rejuvenate your skin for a younger, fresher, more glowing look and feel.
Transitioning into Fall does not have to mean a complete overhaul of your skin care routine, making these 5 small but significant adjustments will prepare you well for the cold, harsh months ahead.
