Fall is such a beautiful time of year! For most of us, it means bright colored leaves, apple cider and comfy sweaters!
But, there’s a drawback to the Autumn season. Our skin becomes dry and dull. And, this doesn’t happen because it’s so much cooler outside, it happens because we turn the heat on inside, and as cozy as it may feel, it also dehydrates our skin.
The good news is, you don’t have to settle for less than radiant looking skin no matter the weather! And, today, we’re going to talk about 2 ways to get radiant looking skin in the Fall.
Our skin’s job every 3 days is to create new skin cells. Our job is to get rid of the old ones so new skin can show through. This is done when we use a facial scrub or microderm abrasion treatment 2 to 3 times a week.
Why is exfoliation so important? If you don’t exfoliate regularly, it’s impossible for your moisturizer to make it’s way through the dead skin to the new which is both a waste of 2 things we find rare these days; time and money.
So, when do you fit this into your routine? We recommend doing it in the evening. Because exfoliating can be abrasive, it leaves new skin sensitive. Let it rest when you do.
Switch Up Your Products
As the seasons change, so do the needs of our skin. This sometimes means the products that worked for you during the summer might not cut it this time of year. You may find your skin might require more moisture during cooler months.
And, how do you know this? If your skin appears unusually dry and tight after using your cleanser, what you’re using may be too harsh for your skin. It might actually be stripping away the natural (good) oils it needs to stay plump and hydrated.
And your skincare products aren’t the only thing you should consider changing if you find your skin dry.
It may also be time to change your foundation, especially if you normally wear an oil control foundation. Dry skin loving options like KmS Mineral Perfecting BB Cream, or Select Botanical Anti-Aging Foundation were created specifically for dry skin and contain ingredients that prevent moisture loss.
