Fall is the most wonderful time of the year. The changing colors, crisp weather and the anticipation of the holiday season and everything that goes with it makes it a favorite season for many. This is also the time of year to switch out your current summer skincare routine. Here is a handful of autumn beauty tips to get you in the mood for the most wonderful season of the year:
The cooler weather means taking a different approach to your skincare. During the fall and winter months, the air becomes drier. Aside from the drier outdoor air, wind, indoor heat and other factors can really dry out your skin. Your best defense is good hydration. You may want to switch your body wash for something creamier and more moisturizing. Here are more autumn beauty tips to keep your skin soft and glowing all season long:
Give Your Skin a Seasonal Reboot
The start of a new season is a perfect excuse for a facial and other skin indulgences. Try a new mask or a peel if a facial is out of the question. Exfoliate to reveal healthy and soft skin. Try an oil-based scrub. This is perfect for your feet and the skin on knees and elbows.
Moisturize and Hydrate
Slather on a rich moisturizer right after showering. Depending on your skin type, you may want to invest in a richer facial moisturizer. Another thing to watch out for is dehydration. It is easy to remember to drink water during the warm weather months, but you can get just as dehydrated during the winter months. Staying hydrated helps your skin look its best.
Don’t forget to use sunscreen
Your face is still exposed to harmful UV rays, even when it isn’t sunny, so keep using your moisturizer with sunscreen.
Avoid Harsh Ingredients
Be careful not to strip your skin of its own natural oils, which is easier to do during the fall and winter months. This will not only cause dryness and flaking, it may cause breakouts, too!
Clean Out Your Makeup And Skincare Supplies
Each season, you should go through your beauty products and toss any old or expired products. Wash makeup brushes with warm soapy water and replace your old makeup with some of falls hottest new colors.
