It happens every year: Summer winds down and the cool weather slowly creeps in. As hard as it can be to pack away those shorts and flirty summer dresses, sweater weather is definitely enticing in its own way. Here are 8 essential skincare tips for fall.
Just like transitioning to a new wardrobe, your skincare regimen needs a change in fall. Here are eight autumn skin and body care tips to keep you looking and feeling lovely through the season.
Switch Up Your Body Cleanser
In the summer, fruity shower gels feel refreshing. In the fall and winter, a hydrating, creamy body wash is in order.
Moisturize All Day, Every Day
Moisturizing from head to tow is non-negotiable in the colder months. The best time to apply lotion is right after your shower or bath, when your skin is still a bit damp.
Embrace Facial Oil
It might seem unthinkable to let oil touch your face during the sweaty summer months. But oil actually isn’t bad for your face at all.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
Just because you may not be laying on the beach, doesn’t mean you can forget the sunscreen for the next six months. Facial sunscreen is a daily essential even in autumn-especially since overcast days can make you forget that sun rays are still beaming down on you. Use a facial moisturizer with a minimum of SPF 15 and reapply every couple of hours if you’re going to step outside.
Keep Your Feet Soft and Smooth
Even though your feet are probably going to be tucked in boots and closed shoes for months to come, you should continue to take care of them and exfoliate on a regular basis. Dry, cracked heels can be very uncomfortable.
Indulge in a New Hand Cream
Its so important to carry a good hand cream in colder months.
Say Hello to Cuticle Oil
One tell-tale sign of cold weather is dry cuticles. Sometimes even the best hand creams aren’t heavy-duty enough to tackle this issue.
Change is Good
Fall is a wonderful time to indulge in your beauty habit. Your skin will thank you.
