As the days grow shorter, the temperatures drop, and the air becomes drier, your skin may lose precious moisture. Autumn is a time of transition, and the best autumn skin care routines will correct most summer damage that has occurred and prepare your skin for winter.
A good facial exfoliant can help remove dead skin cells from your body. Add this to your cleansing routine 3-4 times per week. Not only will you feel fresh but your skin will be free from old, dry cells allowing your moisturizers to be more effective.
Recommendation: Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque
Dry, cool weather means your skin needs more moisture than it did during the summer.
Start by applying your lightweight, pH balancing moisturizer a few times a day when temperatures start to cool. As soon as you start to notice your skin feeling tighter, switch to a thicker moisturizer. This is your skin's way of letting you know when it's time to change your skincare routine.
Recommendation: The MAX Stem Cell Crème
Don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over. Before you leave your house, apply a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or more. This will protect your skin from the elements. Alternatively, choose a product can combines a sunscreen with a moisturizer.
Recommendation: Prevention+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer
Remember, you don’t want to just change your skin routine overnight. Instead, make the change over the course of a few weeks.
The shift from summer to fall may be subtle, but your skin will be the first to notice. Keep an eye out for dryness or sensitivity and move onto your winter skincare products at the first sign of change.
