Transitioning your skincare routine into autumn may seem stressful and tedious, but it’s a lot easier than you think! All you need are some awesome beauty products and a few small adjustments. These little tweaks will keep your skin looking fresh, healthy, and happy for fall.
Step 1: Add In Balms or Face Oils.
One major component that needs to be added to your skincare routine heading into autumn is opting for balms and face oils instead of your regular moisturizer. As temperatures start to drop in fall, the weather can turn harsh which means your skin needs extra nourishment, hydration, and protection from the elements. You can easily pick a face balm or oil for your skin type, even those with acne prone or sensitive skin, and you should because they make such a difference in colder months. Face oils can be mixed into your regular moisturizer for an added shot of moisture while balms can be added in as the last step in your nightly routine. Not only will they prevent dry patches and redness, they will keep your skin soft, supple, firm, and glowing all season long.
Step 2: Exfoliate Weekly.
Another adjustment you will want to make to your routine is to exfoliate weekly. This may not have been a major concern during summer, but you definitely need it during the fall and winter months! Dead skin tends to pile up on your skin when it’s cold which can make skin look dull and dry. Weekly exfoliation ensures your skin looks fresh, plump, and absorbs your skincare products more effectively. After exfoliation, if you really want to give your skin a special treat, apply a face mask. When you rinse the mask off, be sure to mist your face with a vitamin-rich face toner and then apply your favorite moisturizer.
Step 3: Practice Self Care.
The last thing to consider is practicing self care. It might not seem like it applies to your beauty routine, but lack of sleep, stress, and bad diet can affect your skin negatively. Give your skin all it needs to look it’s best by getting proper sleep, eating healthy foods, drinking enough water, and taking time out to relax each day. Staying active during the cold months can also help your skin as well.Just make sure that, if you’re being active outdoors, you’re applying sunscreen to your skin. Contrary to popular belief, your skin can still burn and age if you’re not protecting it during the fall and winter so lather on the SPF!
