How to change your skincare routine for the fall weather
Fall is here. It's time to talk about what the colder weather and cold winds can do to your skin.
As we know, fall brings cooler weather and a drop in humidity making the air dryer. With this change in weather you may notice some changes to your skin.
You may see dryer spots on your face as the dryness and cool winds deplete the top layers of skin of its natural moisture. For those with eczema, you may notice a worsening of your symptoms.
You may notice dry scaling and sometimes itchy skin on your arms and legs.
Here are 3 things we can do to help keep your skin moisturized and glowing.
1) Switch your lightweight moisturizer for a heavier cream or facial oil.
during the summer months, you've probably enjoyed oil free moisturizers or light weight lotions. These light products may not be enough to ensure that your natural skin barrier remains healthy.
Invest in a nourishing rich facial oil such as our Sea Buckthorn Facial Serum. If you already use one of our nourishing facial oils, add a few more drops during your morning and evening routine.
2) Double up on serums.
One of the best ways to ensure that your skin remains hydrated is to double up by using an oil free water based serum, followed by a facial oil.
Our oil free Firming Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in the layers of your skin. It decreases with age and environmental factors (along with other factors).
To ensure hydrated and moisturized skin, after you have cleansed and toned your skin, apply a Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. While your face is moist, apply 1 to 3 drops of your favorite facial oil serum.
3) Use a humidifier
Fall weather means cold and dry outside, but it also means warm and dry inside. Our indoor heating systems often use forced air which can be drying to your skin.
Invest in a humidifier. It will help prevent your skin from becoming dry and tight while your sleep.
