8 Tips To Update Your Skincare Routine From Summer To Fall

..

A change of season typically means a change in the way skin behaves. You don’t need to overhaul your skincare routine entirely, but you do need to make some minor adjustments to your regimen to ensure that the skin stays healthy and balanced during this seasonal change. Here’s how to transition from skincare routine from summer to fall flawlessly.

 

1.Changing Up Your Cleanser
During the summer months, some gel and foaming cleansers are great for deep cleaning morning and night; however, these may be a bit too much once temperatures cool and less oil is being produced—especially if you have dry sensitive skin. Go for a gentle, creamy formulation to ensure a hydrated and healthy skin barrier.

2.Boost Hydration
If you aren’t already using one, the fall is a great time to start. The reason for this is because of the hydrating benefits that alcohol-free toners provide. Since the air is getting cooler but not yet very dry, it’s the perfect way to infuse water into the skin. Wipe an alcohol-free toner over the skin after cleansing.

3.Layer On A Nourishing Serum
To go the extra mile to combat skin dehydration, layer on a nourishing serum, that will help replenish lost moisture, giving you long-term hydration and smoother, plumper skin. Pat the serum onto damp skin after cleansing and using a toner but before a moisturizer.

4.Opt for a Heavier Moisturizer
A lightweight moisturizer is enough for most skin types in the summer, but when the weather begins to cool down, it is important to apply something a little heavier to prevent moisture loss. If you’re using a gel moisturizer, considering switching to a cream. If you’re already using a cream, consider changing to something with a thicker consistency with ceramides.

5.Protect With SPF
This may come as surprise, but fall is a season during which a tremendous amount of UV damage is incurred. We often think that when the temperatures are cooler outside, the sun isn’t as harmful, but this is false. Protection is a year-round job, so be sure to apply a sunscreen formulated for your skin type to the face, neck, and any exposed chest area.

6.Add Retinol Back Into Your Routine
If you took a break from retinol (vitamin A) during the summer, it’s time to incorporate it into your skincare routine. Opt for either a non-prescription retinol serum or a prescription retinoid. Either will help to dramatically reduce the appearance of brown spots caused by the summer sun, lines, and wrinkles.

7.Exfoliate to Remove Unwanted Pigment From Summer
Certain skin types are prone to increased sensitivity in the summertime from heat, chlorine, and sun. These types should exfoliate minimally during this time. But come fall, exfoliation is imperative to repair and brighten the complexion and remove discoloration brought out by summer heat and sun.
For all skin types, exfoliation simply gives the face an instant glow, both by clearing away the dead skin cells that cause dullness and by allowing your other products to penetrate the skin more effectively.
Unlike scrubs, which have grainy ingredients that slough off the skin, chemical exfoliants use ingredients with a low pH to help loosen dead skin cells. Chemical exfoliation works by loosening the bonds between cells with acids or enzymes Every product has it's own specific directions, however, as a general rule, chemical exfoliants are recommended daily and physical exfoliants are recommended weekly. Most people do well with daily chemical exfoliation, but you have to experiment to see what works best for your skin. Since chemical exfoliants do not involve rubbing the skin, they are generally safer than many physical exfoliants. Hydroxy acids, such as salicylic and glycolic acids, have the ability to penetrate the skin for deeper exfoliation.

8.Add Sleeping Pack Into Your Routine
Sleep masks are especially important to add into your skincare routine in the fall and winter, so that your skin is ultra-moisturized when you wake up. Their formulas are long-lasting and intensely hydrating, but still comfortable enough to sleep with them on. They’re created to deeply moisturize your skin, much more so than a regular moisturizer. You can also find sleep masks that target concerns like brightening and anti-aging. They easily absorb while you sleep so you don’t have to wash them off in the morning, and can wake up with rejuvenated skin. It’s a quick and easy step to add into your nightly skincare routine and one from which you’ll definitely see results, especially in the harsh winter.
