4. Exfoliate every 2-3 days
Go light on exfoliating but do exfoliate. Two – three times per week will help summer skin renew and remove old skin cells.
5. Use a thicker night-time moisturizer
Nourish your skin at night with a thicker night-time moisturizer. We need to compensate for the change in weather by adding more moisture to the skin and help retain it. Products with hyaluronic acid are most effective.
You can still get a deep, satisfying clean with a gentler approach. Aim for exfoliating 3-4 times a month. When washing your face, try to massage your skin instead of pulling or rubbing. Gently dab skin to dry with a soft towel instead of rubbing or wiping. And don’t forget to wash your neck with your face wash, too!
6. Add in a lip moisturizer and eye cream
Use a lip moisturizer and add eye cream if these two things aren’t already part of your ritual. Our skin doesn’t do well with sudden transitions. These two things help decrease the stress caused by environmental temperature changes.
7. Incorporate Vitamin C into your routine
Vitamin C works double-duty in the colder months by combating UV rays that aren’t fully blocked by your sunscreen. It also evens the skins pigmentation which helps boost natural collagen production and can result in a brighter complexion.
Grow indoor plants! Plants release water vapor into the air naturally increasing humidity. This can improve respiratory and skin health by offsetting the drying effects of heating systems.
Avoid long, hot showers and use tepid to warm water on your face.
Plug the humidifier in. Fall air is cooler and holds less moisture. Indoor air can even be dryer than outdoor air.
