Fall into a New Skin Care Routine

It’s true – fall is just around the corner, and despite your lingering grip on summer, before you know it you’ll be trading in your bikini for a turtleneck. Think of it as an opportunity to embrace the new season, and the cooler temperatures, with a fresh face. After a summer spent in the sun, you’ll want to switch up your skin care routine to put your best face forward.

Cooler weather means drier air, and that can mean drier skin, too. Time to focus on moisturizing. Put away the gels and the bars of soap, and opt for a creamy, soap-free cleanser instead. You’ll also want to move to a thicker, cream-type moisturizer rather than a lotion. It will give you a better barrier to reduce water loss. Hands are especially prone to dryness as the weather cools down. Keep a stash of your favorite hand cream nearby, and get in the habit of putting on a dab after every hand wash.

While it’s still important to exfoliate regularly, you’ll want to cut back a bit on the frequency. You’ll also want to switch to an oil-based scrub to get the best of both exfoliation and hydration. After a summer of sweating, your pores probably need some TLC, too. A salon-based facial is a great way to give them a deep clean while gently exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time. Your aesthetician can help you choose the best one for your skin’s needs.
