With summer’s humidity slowly transitioning into autumn’s crisp air, this seasonal change has a much bigger impact on your skin than you might think. It’s time to transition over to fall skincare.
A decrease in humidity can lead to a loss of moisture in your skin, meaning that the barrier can get disrupted and then lead to dryness, flaking or extra sensitivity. If you’ve ever noticed that your eczema or psoriasis tends to flare up during the cooler months, this is why. Fall skincare choices are noticeably creamier and more nourishing to protect your delicate barrier from this loss of moisture as well as other changes that come with the season, such as stronger winds and the dry heat from the heater.
Follow our fall skincare tips to maintain healthy skin all season long:
Apply an antioxidant-rich serum
Recover your skin from any damage it might have experienced over the summer. An antioxidant-rich serum works to address dark spots and sun-stressed skin while replenishing lost moisture.
Choose a thick moisturizer
Compensate for the drop of humidity outdoors and the dry heat indoors. Add a thick, creamy moisturizer to your ritual to help your skin retain its precious moisture and adapt to the season’s environmental changes.
Use a lip balm
A lip balm creates a protective barrier between this super delicate area and the elements. Keep your lips moisturized to help them adapt easier to the colder temperatures and prevent drying or cracking.
Reach for a gentle exfoliator
If you weren’t exfoliating throughout the summer, it’s time to deep clean months of built up oil and sunscreen. As your skin might be a little drier than usual during this time of the year, take it easy with the chemical exfoliators (such as AHA and BHA acids) and opt for milder options like a facial polish.
And, of course, keep using sunscreen!
While UV radiation decreases during the fall, it’s still present throughout the whole year. Protect your skin from these harmful rays by applying an SPF every day.
