With this change in temperature, sunlight, and moisture, it’s important to adapt your skin care routine. Changing up your skin care regimen can support Fall skin that may be feeling damaged, dry and in need of repair.
We would love to share some of our favorite tips to keep your skin looking refreshed; getting rid of sunscreen and other build up that may be clogging your pores; treating skin that may have suffered from some inevitable sun damage; and correcting the dull and dehydrated appearance of your skin, so it will be glowing once again
Nothing can replace the benefits of food and all of the nutritional value that they bring to our wholeness and well being. They are our first defense against aging and what our bodies need to look vibrant. Grab seasonal fruits and vegetables and eat according to the season. Shop at your local framer’s market for the best options and prices!
Also consider a peel to fall proof your skin such as the Pumpkin, Chemical Peel treatment. The aroma of pumpkin always gets us excited during this season. A good exfoliation treatment really unclogs the pores and prepares the skin to receive the benefits of an active moisturizer by allowing it to really penetrate deep into the skin. Just as important it is to exfoliate, it is equally important to not over exfoliate because that can add to more dryness, sensitivity and depletion of you skin’s natural moisture barrier. An over the counter gentle exfoliator should be used no more than 2-3x’s a week, again depending on your age, skin type and condition. Basically the drier, thinner and more irritable your skin is, the less you want to topically irritate it with over exfoliation, less is best.
Chapped lips are an all-too-common problem in the fall, so make sure to pay special attention to your lips. You lose ten times more moisture through your lips than from the rest of your skin combined. Apply a petroleum-based lip balm before applying lipstick.
