How to adapt to the weather changes painlessly and what tools and tips will help you in the upcoming season. Here are top 5 Fall skin care tips to consider.
Summer is over. With the change in season comes a change in weather conditions. Days are shorter, the sun shines less, the temperature drops, the air blows drier and your skin responds by losing moisture and becoming more sensitive. It is particularly sensitive to high summer temperatures and an active sun. Even a slightly cold wind can leave your skin feeling irritated. With proper care, you can keep your skin looking and feeling healthy and at its best. The great thing is you don’t need to make a drastic change to your daily routine – just a few tweaks is all that is needed.
Hydration and nutrition
As the summer heat cools down, you need to switch to a moisturizer with a dense texture. Don’t forget to use a night cream as it completely restores the hydro-lipid layer which is responsible for protecting the skin at low temperatures. Night creams are designed to nourish the deeper layers of the epidermis to compensate for the loss of moisture. In addition, it is necessary to think in advance about the coming winter. Make sure you pay attention and supply your skin with the active vitamins A, C, and E, which are in short supply during the cold winter months. And remember, it’s not only your skin but your entire body that needs extra hydration.
Sun protection is still a must
Even though sun activity in the fall is less than in the summer, the UV index may still continue to be high. The protection your skin needs can be reduced to 10-15 SPF, compared with 20-30 used during the summer. Your body skin also needs the appropriate care as it can suffer more than your face. The effects from the summer sun may appear on the body in the form of dryness, flaking, and reduced tone. Laxity is particularly noticeable in areas of soft and thin skin such as the hands, neck and décolleté.
Protect yourself from colds
Colds are always nasty in themselves. Even after a cold is gone, the consequences remain in the shape of poor skin quality. So, by all means, try to avoid colds. Adjust to temperature changes carefully. Dress correctly for the weather, try to walk every day in the fresh air and get enough sleep. Remember to take your vitamins, as they will nourish your skin inside and out, providing the most comprehensive care.
Start a course of deep cleansing, such as peelings and scrubs. They refresh the skin’s upper layer, improving the tone and erasing pigmented spots that appeared during the summer months. Scrubs work well combined with moisturizing masks. They remove the dead cells of the epidermis, making it thinner. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and moisturizing substances penetrate better, gradually returning the skin’s softness.
Professional skin care
Professional skin care procedures will help to restore your skin and prepare it for the upcoming cold weather. A gentle peeling in a clinic will refresh areas with dead cells and leave your face with a crisp tone. Even a simple cosmetologist consultation can be very helpful.
The specialist will assess your skin condition and provide a recommendation for both professional procedures and home beauty remedies. A beautician can introduce you to various special products and suggest probes to test, leaving you to decide which professional cosmetics are suitable for your skin.
