Tips for the Perfect Fall Skincare Routine
Autumn, the season that teaches us that change can be beautiful.
Summer has come to an end, sigh, and the days are becoming shorter. On the bright side, does this warrant a longer beauty sleep every night? I'll take all of that I can get! As the weather changes, ushering in the beauty of Fall colours, you may begin to notice some not-so-fun changes to your skin. Cooler, crisp air can leave your skin dry, dehydrated, and susceptible to skin barrier damage. Transitioning to a Fall skincare routine can and will keep your skin hydrated and glowing all season long.
Here are 5 ways you can revamp your skincare routine for Fall:
Fall is the perfect time to give your skin a fresh new start. Professional level gentle exfoliation treatments are best reserved for this time of year, when sun sensitivity becomes less of contraindication. Fall is the perfect time to consider booking a professional AHA exfoliating peel with the experts at The Beauty Lab or if you enjoy DIY, you can purchase Dermalogica's at Home Rapid Reveal Peel. Professional peels support natural cell renewal to reveal brighter, healthier-looking skin. The #1 selling product in Dermalogica's skincare lineup is in fact a daily exfoliant. This daily microfoliant is a rice based powder that activates upon contact with water. It is safe for daily use and with all skin types. The ultra calming colloidal oatmeal formula helps debrid old skin cells, while maintaining a healthy skin barrier that is often damaged by abrasive scrub exfoliants.
Skin Hydrating Boosters
Skin hydrating boosters are concentrated hydrating fluid that restore moisture balance in the skin and should be locked in with a rich moisturizer. Look for skin boosters that contain hyaluronic acids and glycolipids. Hyaluronic acid can draw 1000 times its weight of moisture into the cell, while glycolipids allows cells to connect with one another to form tissue in our skin. Check out my recommendation here.
Redness Relief Primers
Who doesn't love a makeup primer, sunscreen and redness relief treatment all in one product? Dermalogica's tinted primer has green botanical extracts to reduce redness, and silicone to smooth and prime the skin for other products. Purchase it here.
Change up your cleanser!
Out with the old and in with the new. Sweat and activity in summertime often call for a clarifying cleanser that can cut through excess oil production. As we head into our hibernation (aka beauty sleep) months, our skin cleansers should be gentle and leave your skin feeling nourished and moisturized. Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel is a perfect skincare staple for Fall.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Repeat.
As we begin to dial up the heat in the house, consider using a cool mist humidifier to restore enviromental humidity losses. Dermalogica's ultracalming light mist hydrates the skin and conditions and tones to the perfect ph level. Not to mention, it feels refreshingly incredible.
