It’s FALL time again! Summer is winding down and cooler weather is finally on the way. There’s a lot to get excited about for the fall season, but as we transition and the weather changes, the way our skin reacts to the new temperatures changes too.
Here’s 4 skincare tips to help prepare your skin for fall.
1. Try an Oil Based Scrub
Oil based scrubs are perfect for autumn and winter because they exfoliate, polish and hydrate skin all at once. Our sugar scrubs are oil based and perfect for the cooler months when skin gets dry and flaky.
2. Moisturize Yo Self, Sis!
Moisturizing from head to toe 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. Because of environmental changes, switching to a thicker moisturizer before bed is important, says Julia Tzu, MD, a double board-certified dermatologist, and the founder and medical director of Wall Street Dermatology in New York City.
3. Don’t Forget Yo Sunscreen
The sun can still wreak havoc on the skin in the cooler months, so don’t toss out your sunscreen just yet! Apply in the morning after your moisturizer to keep your skin protected from harmful UV rays.
4. Embrace Facial Oil Serums
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. In fact, jojoba oil is perfect for skin and has the same chemical makeup of sebum, which is naturally secreted through the skin. An antioxidant-rich facial oil is a great way to nourish all skin types in the fall when more moisture is needed.
