YOUR FALL SKIN ROUTINE: WAYS TO COMBAT DRYNESS


 


As the golden hues of autumn paint the landscape, our skin too undergoes a transition. The crisp fall air in some climates, while refreshing, can often rob our skin of its natural moisture, leading to dryness and sensitivity. 


But don’t fret babes, with the right skincare routine you can confidently embrace the beauty of fall without compromising on your skin's health. Let's dive into some essential steps to keep your skin hydrated and radiant this season.


Exfoliate Less: Preserving Your Skin's Natural Barrier

While exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine, over-exfoliating during the fall months can exacerbate dryness. Our skin's natural barrier is crucial in retaining moisture, and excessive exfoliation can weaken this protective shield. 


Instead, opt for gentler exfoliants and reduce the frequency. So, if you were exfoliating 2 times a week, you may want to try cutting it down to once weekly. This ensures you're still doing your due diligence with getting rid of dead skin cells while keeping your much-need skin barrier intact. Consult with your esthetician on this if you’re unsure!


Humidify Your Space: Combatting Indoor Dryness in Fall

With the onset of fall and winter, many search for new ways to combat indoor dryness. One major culprit behind this seasonal skin challenge is indoor heating. While it keeps us warm, it also saps the moisture from the air, leading to a drop in room humidity levels.


Investing in a good humidifier can make a world of difference. By adding moisture back into the air, not only do you improve air quality, but you also provide your skin with the optimal environment to remain soft, supple, and well-hydrated throughout the colder months.


Mist Often: Our Top Picks for Refreshing Hydration

Misting is more than just a mid-day pick-me-up — it's a hydration boost for your skin. Especially during fall, when the air is drier, a good mist can provide instant relief. A good mist is a must-have in your skincare regimen. Keep one in your bag, on your desk, or by your bedside for that instant moisture boost!

Final Thoughts: Autumn Skincare

Skincare aside, we truly love the fall season. It's a time to slow down, to nurture, and to give back to ourselves. And sometimes, the simplest shifts in our routine can make the most profound difference.


This fall, I invite you to listen to your skin. Maybe it's asking for a little less exfoliation, a touch more hydration, or perhaps the gentle embrace of a nurturing mist. Remember, it's not about the number of products we use, but the love and intention behind our choices.


So, as you stand before the mirror each morning and night, let your skincare routine be a ritual of love, a moment of connection with yourself. After all, embracing the season's change is about actively nurturing your inner glow, allowing it to radiate outward with each mindful choice you make in your skincare journey.
