Ladies, fall is on its way - at least for those of us who live in areas that experience all 4 seasons. We’re talking warm sweaters, hot drinks, pumpkin everything, and leaves falling. But… this also means summer is coming to an end. Our summer skin glow is fading, the temperature is getting cooler, and it’s time to retire the bikini. Fall doesn’t have to be a dramatic change for your skincare though. We’ve got some tips on how you can seamlessly transition your skincare from summer to fall!
Rehydrate Your Skin With Hyaluronic Acid
Still using your summer moisturizer? It may be time to step it up a notch. With the cooler temperatures outside and the very drying central heating systems in buildings, your skin tends to get a lot drier than it does in the summer. Put away your oil absorbing lotions for the season and reach for your rich creams. Make sure to look for ingredients that not only put a barrier on the top of your skin, but also hydrate from deep within. Our Daily Dual Repair has your hands covered with our hyaluronic acid and retinol dual serum and cream. Hyaluronic Acid gives your hands deep hydration so you not only feel better in the moment, but retain moisture longer and replump the skin.
Keep Your Lips Soft & Supple With Lip Balm
Cracked, dry lips are unfortunately a big part of the cooler seasons. However, a little bit of lip balm can go a long way to keep you protected. We recommend looking for a lip balm with shea butter and a SPF. Buy a few so you have one for your car, one for work and one for at home. Apply lip balm regularly, making sure to also do it before bed! The shea butter and SPF will keep your lips hydrated, plump and also protected from cold weather and the sun’s damage.
Bring Back Radiance With Oil-Based Skincare
As someone with oily skin, I can understand how scary it can be to use something on your face that is oil-based. However, dryness, brought on by the cool weather, can often strip away that beautiful summer glow all too fast. As the weather transitions, phase out any oil-absorbing skincare and switch it in for something with a non-comedogenic oil base to bring back radiance! Focus on hydration and not on mattifying. Don’t forget about your hands! Our age-defying Rehydration Cream contains olive oil and safflower oil that hydrate your hands without leaving any greasy residue behind.
Cleanse & Hydrate All At Once
No matter what time of the year it is, cleansing is always important. In the summer we tend to opt for a foaming facial cleanser and stay clear of anything too heavy. Fall time is the perfect time to break out that creamy cleanser and focus on gentle, soothing, and moisturizing cleansing. For your hands, we recommend our hydrating Hand Cleansers. They contain ceramides, vitamin E, and essential oils to leave your hands not only smelling great and feeling cleansed, but also hydrated!
Reduce Skin Irritation With A Humidifier
Feeling like your skin is getting tight and itchy in your home? You may need to bring back some moisture in the air! A humidifier is just what you need. Humidifiers release moisture into the air, boosting the relative humidity in a home or a room to something more comfortable for not only your skin, but also your respiratory system. The increased moisture in the air is exactly what your routine needs to take it to the next level!
Keep Your Showers Short And Lukewarm
We all love a long hot shower, especially on a cold day, but your skin isn’t as big of a fan. It is especially important in the cooler seasons to make sure you keep your showers short and sweet. Try to shower for only 5-10 minutes and make sure to use a mild, hydrating body wash to keep your skin feeling refreshed. In addition, make sure your water is as cool as you can handle. Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils and moisture, leaving you with drier, more vulnerable skin. For the best results, use lukewarm water to keep your skin protected.
