Temps dropping. Cardigans out. The scent of pumpkin spice in the air. Yep, fall season is definitely here. But while we’re all enjoying the changing weather, one thing should stay the same: wearing daily sunscreen. Keep reading for some fall skincare tips and why you should keep that SPF habit!
Fall skincare tips
Double up on hydration
Let’s keep this simple: cold weather = drier skin. According to studies, lower temperatures can weaken your skin barrier, increasing the risk of itchy, dry, and often inflamed skin (AKA dermatitis!). On top of this, your skin also holds less moisture in low-humidity conditions. As such, now is the time to focus on hydrating your skin — whether that’s incorporating a hyaluronic acid serum or choosing a thicker moisturizer.
Go gentle on exfoliation
When skin feels dry, dull, and starts cracking, your first instinct may be to slough it all away. However, too much exfoliation can be counterproductive — leading to even more dryness and irritation. So ditch the harsh scrub, and go for a gentle exfoliant instead, just like our Ease Up Watery PHA Oil Cleanser, which simultaneously brightens, cleanses, and hydrates. Consider reducing your exfoliant use to a few times a week too, and balance it out with more moisturizing products!
Don’t forget body care
It’s easy to forget, but your skin is more than just your face. Like we said, colder weather can weaken your skin barrier — and that includes the rest of your body too! Pay extra attention to areas such as your elbows, feet, and hands, which tend to get calloused and rough. Make sure to moisturizer with a reliable lotion to prevent cracking.
Never skip SPF
Now for one of the most critical steps of your fall skincare routine: SPF! So why do you need sunscreen when it’s cold? While it may be colder and cloudier, harmful rays can still penetrate the clouds. On top of this, clouds can actually end up reflecting the rays and boosting your chances of sunburn. As your skin barrier becomes extra vulnerable, all the more should you wear sunscreen all-year round to prevent aging, sunburn, skin cancer, and more!
