Fall is in the air. And you know what that means...
Pumpkins, special coffees, boots and cozy sweaters and a change for your skincare routine.
Our skin changes from season to season.
We should make changes to our skincare products like we change our outfits.
However, when I'm speaking with clients this is an often forgotten step of their normal season changing routine.
Here are a few top tips for transitioning from summer to fall.
1. Trade in your lighter creams and moisturizers for more luxurious, rich formulas.
The heat and humidity that come with summer can make heavier creams and moisturizers feel intolerable on your skin.
However, as the air drys out, you'll want to enrich and moisturize it more.
2. Add a hydrating serum to your routine if you haven't already!
A hydrating serum adds incredible benefits to your skin.
SkinScript's Ageless Hydrating Serum is an excellent choice for hydration.
This formula powerfully restores moisture to the skin.
Honey, Aloe and Hyaluronic Acid aids in improving hydration, balancing surface lipids, lessening the appearance of wrinkles and plumping the skin.
Another great one is SkinScript's Vitamin C Serum.
Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant to be using all year long.
Vitamin C helps to combat hyperpigmentation, improve the appearance of lines and helps with collagen production.
A true staple to everyone's skincare routine.
3. Continue to use sunscreen regularly.
Many clients, from all over the country, have told me they believe if they put sunscreen on in the morning, they are good to go.
They also believe summertime is the time for sunscreen.
Applying sunscreen once doesn't protect you all day.
And sunscreen needs to be used all year long.
You should reapply about every 2 hours.
Carry your sunscreen with you when you're going to be outside for an extended period of time (maybe when you're visiting one of those epic Fall Fairs!)
The Hale & Hush Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Zinc Oxide Sunscreen is by far one of the best sunscreens out there.
Not only does it protect from UVA and UVB rays like a broad spectrum sunscreen would, it also contains a special amino acid blend that protects from UVC rays as well!
Plus, it's a Zinc Oxide (mineral based), which many more people can use without having a negative reaction and is better for you.
4. Don't forget about your hands and feet.
Foot peels and hand creams are your best friend.
Dried out hands and feet are no fun.
Be sure to prep and protect them for the harsher winter weather.
5. Be sure to check in with your Esthetician!
While these are some great general tips for taking your skin from the bright and cheery days of summer to the twinkle light nights of fall, make sure you check in with your Esthetician to ensure the changes you're making to your skincare routine are right for you.
Your Esthetician will know what you've been working on and trying to achieve and be able to help you make the best decisions possible for your skin.
