Are you “fall-ing” in love with everything autumn? Long gone are the hot days of summer, and now it’s time for sweaters, booties, and steaming lattes.
Sadly, you can’t carry over your summer skincare routine into autumn and expect the same results. The cool temperature of autumn can dry out your skin, leaving it flaky and dull. Our beauty experts here at the Beauty Lounge have some tips to keep your skin glowing long after summer has ended!
Slather on That Moisturizer
Your skin deserves extra care when the weather gets cooler. Thicker moisturizers are best for autumn, because cool air sucks moisture from your skin. Consider adding eye cream to your routine to give the delicate areas of your face some extra hydration.
The sudden change of temperature as we transition from summer to fall can cause your skin to be extra-sensitive. If you experience any burning sensation when applying your moisturizer, switch to a sensitive skin brand to calm that irritation.
Your face isn’t the only thing that needs moisture; give your body some love, too! Shea butter body lotions are great for skin that’s over-exfoliated and dry, because the fatty acids and vitamins in this product will soften your skin to perfection. Try applying body lotion once a day after showering, because your skin will better lock in moisture after all that steam.
Less Exfoliation, Please!
Exfoliating your skin is a great way to remove dead skin cells and get your glow on. But over-exfoliating, especially during the colder months, can dry out your skin and cause damage. Stick to gently exfoliating just once a week, and consider oil-based scrubs that exfoliate and moisturize your skin all at once!
Consider a Humidifier
With cold weather comes dry air, and sometimes, even moisturizers and body lotions aren’t enough to keep your skin healthy. We recommend investing in a humidifier and placing it by your bed. Humidifiers release moisture into the air, so your skin will continue to hydrate overnight.
