The summer humidity is finally slipping away.
The nights are getting cooler and the days shorter.
Maintaining healthy skin in the Fall season means that just as nature is switching up on us, you also need to switch up your skin routine.
In this post, we’ll go over 7 fall skincare tips you can begin using today for healthier and radiant skin all through the season.
7 Fall Skincare Tips For Healthy Skin
#1- Drink more water
Water has so many benefits including flushing toxins out of your body, helping you lose those unwanted pounds as well as keeping your joints lubricated.
Water is also very important to the health of your skin.
Fifty to sixty percent of your body mass is made up of water. Secondly, your skin is the largest organ of the human body. Thus, keeping yourself hydrated by drinking more water during these dry and colder months is key to helping your skin stay healthy and supple.
#2- Use a thicker moisturizer
This summer you got away with lightweight lotions because, let’s not lie, summer heat and thick lotions don’t mix.
But the Fall is a much drier season.
It is time to switch to a thicker moisturizer that will lock the moisture in your skin.
In addition to using a thicker moisturizer everyday, it is helpful to carry moisturizing hand/foot lotion to keep your skin in these areas from cracking- as they are prone to.
Our Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore is an excellent moisturizer that will meet this need. The Triple Lipid Restore is an anti-aging correcting cream formulated to help restore your skin’s external barrier and to support natural self-repair.
#3- Invest in a humidifier
Just because you’re asleep does not mean your body does not lose water.
If you live in a colder region, it is likely that in the evenings, you will be cranking up the heat in your house to stay warm.
This makes your skin lose water even faster.
Having a humidifier in your bedroom is helpful in preventing dried and cracked skin.
#4- Ditch the soap – go with a creamy shower gel instead
The fruity soap you were using this summer?
It’s time for it to go. Soap dries your skin and makes it more susceptible to cracks.
Switch to a creamy shower gel that will help with locking in the moisture.
You might have to also put away your harsh toners at least until after winter.
As much as we enjoy the summer months, all the salt, sun and chlorine does a number on our skin.
Blotches and discoloration are not uncommon after a fun summer.
To get your skin ready for the Fall, this is the best time to exfoliate.
Exfoliation will get rid of those blotches and help you keep an even skin tone.
If you want to take that a step further, this is also an excellent time to get a chemical peel.
This month if you purchase 6 chemical peels, you will get a post-procedure bundle for free.
#6- Use hydrating masks 1-3 times weekly
Using a hydrating mask 1-3 times weekly will also help keep your skin nice and hydrated for the season.
If you find you are experiencing extra facial dryness, you can use a hydrating mask every day.
#7- Vitamin C is your friend
Vitamin C is well-documented in research to help with healing skin wounds. Burn victims have been shown in many studies to heal quicker with increased doses of vitamin C.
Your fall favorites like apple cider contain a lot of vitamin C. Oranges, lemons and limes are chock-full of it
You can also get vitamin C as a supplement at your local pharmacy.
Giving your skin the best opportunity to heal itself with vitamin C is a great decision to make for your skin.
