Fall is here as we feel the change with cooler weather, see the days getting shorter, and back-to-school and work schedule ‘hustle’ upon us here in New England. As we look forward to this transition in seasons, we need to consider how to care for our skin when the temperature starts to drop. Summertime skincare products will most likely be shelved, and the richer, more hydrating options will now be at your fingertips. It’s now time to adapt your product lineup to meet the needs of your skin! Lucky for you, we have all of the tips and recommendations on what products you should be using in your fall skin care routine, so let's dive in!
Cleanser and Moisturizer – Is That Enough?
What Steps to Add in your Fall Skincare Routine & What Products to Use
Load Up on The Moisturizer, Including Eye Cream
Which Moisturizer is Best for My Skin?
Maintain Youthful-Looking Skin - Our skin is continuously renewing itself, exposing the new skin to dryness and the elements. The most sensitive areas that also reveal signs of aging are our hands, neck and chest, forehead and under-eye. Keeping these target areas protected with moisture will aid in repairing cells faster, and keep your skin looking youthful. Moisturizers made with natural ingredients such as shea butter, essential oils, and botanicals can pack quite a moisture punch, and really work to maintain skin tone, texture and hydration.
Prevents Premature Aging - With the breakdown of collagen and elastin as we age, wrinkles will naturally appear. You can prolong their appearance by protecting your skin: avoid sun exposure, manage stress, eat healthy foods packed with vitamins & minerals and consistently moisturize with effective ingredients. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. Starting a healthy natural skincare routine early is key to having long, lasting beautiful skin.
Face Masks For A Boost In Hydration
Benefits of Adding a Face Mask to Your Fall Skincare Routine
Adding a face mask weekly to your routine will provide multiple benefits to the overall healthy of your skin. Aside from a little TLC, let’s uncover what a mask can actually do.
Unclog And Decongest Pores - A face mask formulated with earths precious Clays are the chief ingredient that will help remove dirt and congestion and absorb excess oil produced by the skin. They also aid in sloughing the buildup of dead skin cells, revealing cleaner, fresher, newer skin beneath. Clean pores mean fewer chances of eruptions and breakouts. The right ingredients will detoxify and clarify the skin.
Boost Hydration - Masks help in stimulating blood circulation. Applying a clay mask, letting it absorb, and then removing it expands the blood vessels in our skin. A hydrating mask will deliver an intensive burst of nourishing and therapeutic skin care ingredients in a highly concentrated form to quench your skin.
Gateway to Better Skin - Masks clear the way for your other products to work effectively. They help in aiding those products to now be absorbed correctly into the skin. Why put a beautiful botanical serum and moisturizer on skin that is clogged, congested and dull? Clear the way to getting results by adding a mask to your Fall skincare routine.
Cut Back On the Exfoliating Scrub, But DONT Skip It!
Exfoliation is a necessary step to deep clean your pores and remove dead skin build up without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Our skin exposure to the elements of cold, wind and frigid temperatures weakens the skin barrier, causing our skin to be more vulnerable to irritation and dryness. Reduce your exfoliation to once in two weeks with a gentle scrub, followed by a serum and moisturizer. The combination of finely crushed walnut herbal powder infused with an aromatic blend of organic Lavender and Rosemary essential oil, Grapeseed oil and Vitamin E, will gently polish and wash away dead skin cells, leaving your skin extra soft, clear and lightly moisturized.
