As we transition seasons from summer to fall, I wanted to talk about the best way to transition your skin care routine. In general, if you are using the right products for your skin type, you shouldn’t need to change your routine too much. One of the biggest issues in fall and winter is dry air and how that affects the skin. Cooler temperatures and switching over to heat from air conditioning can cause skin to feel parched. However, there are a few things I recommend to help your skin stay hydrated and glowing:
Sleeping with a humidifier in your bedroom can help so much to counteract dry air. It will add moisture back into the skin and help your skin hold on to that moisture.
Using a Hyaluronic Acid Serum before your sunscreen in the morning (yes, you should still wear sunscreen in the fall and winter!) and before moisturizer at night will add much needed hydration to your skin. Hyaluronic acid serums are amazing for hydrating and plumping up the skin. This can be a great option for your skin instead of relying on a heavier moisturizer. iS Clinical’s Hydra-Cool is one of my favorites because it contains menthol to calm inflammation as well as hydrate the skin. Dr. Nigma’s Serum No 1 is also an amazing option to deeply hydrate and plump up the skin.
A gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin is essential for all skin types, especially in the winter. My Daily Cleansing Serum contains glycerin, a powerful humectant that draws moisture from the air into the skin. It also helps to repair the skin’s barrier and prevent moisture loss.
Many people are scared to exfoliate in the fall and winter when skin is more dry. However, dry and sensitive skin still needs to be exfoliated! You might not be able to exfoliate as often as other skin types, but it’s still so important! A good, gentle way to exfoliate is to use gauze to remove cleanser. The gauze will gently exfoliate the skin in the process, resulting in brighter skin. Exfoliation is necessary to remove the dead layer of skin on the surface so that hydrating products can do their job!
