Fall Skin Refresh

Updated: Oct 14, 2022

You may start to feel that your summer skincare routine isn’t quite doing the job anymore. That is because September is a transition month that can still have warm days leading to cooler nights. Breakouts may occur as the oil flow in the skin during the summer is still occurring while the cooler air is creating layers of buildup on the surface of the skin. This can result in a dry, dull appearance by October. Try these 6 tips that are easy to implement as you begin to transition your skin for the cooler and colder weather.

6 Tips to Update Your Skincare for Fall

Tip #1: Exfoliate - When we exfoliate in Autumn, we are typically accomplishing a few things. The summer sun may have left its mark on our skin, and a gentle exfoliation regimen may help fade hyperpigmentation.

In the winter months, it is especially important that our skin be open to hydrating and healing ingredients, and a layer of dead skin can prevent skincare from absorbing and working effectively.

Tip #2: Boosting Hydration with Serum - This does not mean a moisturizer. Serum delivers active and essential ingredients to the skin quickly, therefore boosting hydration before the moisturizer. Apply after cleansing and before moisturizer. Seal the serum to maximize the benefits, with a good moisturizer or face cream.

Tip #3: Eye Love - Most of us are too busy in the summer to think about products that protect and firm the delicate eye area? With the holiday season around the corner, it is the perfect time to add a boost to the eye area to counteract crepey skin, dark circles, and puffiness.

Tip #4: Change Your Moisturizer - Fall and winter can leave your skin drier than in the summer months. Using a thicker moisturizer will come to your aid to nourish, renew, hydrate and protect your skin. If you do not use a moisturizer in the summer months, fall is the time to add a lighter moisturizer. Apply every morning and evening as part of your daily routine.

Tip #5: Don't Forget Sunscreen - Sunscreen should be a part of your everyday routine for as long as you live every day every season. An autumn afternoon may be a little darker than one in mid-July, but those overcast days still have sun rays that greet you every time you're outside. If you use a foundation with sunscreen is not enough protection, consider adding a "Full Spectrum or Sun Block" mix with your moisturizer before your makeup.

Tip #6: Add a Body Cream - Skin that suffers from dryness and a lackluster appearance isn’t limited to the face and neck. While fall and winter clothes cover more of our body, the skin can become extremely dry, flaky, and itchy. Our AS absorbs quickly and provides long lasting hydration from head to toe.

Bonus Tip - Humidifier

One of the kindest things you can do for your skin in the fall and winter is to sleep in a room with a humidifier. It is also wonderful for your hair and sinuses.
