As you’re going to do your usual morning routine, you wash your face and look into the mirror. Yes, your skin is screaming FALL IS HERE and you know it. The weather is changing again, and as the temperature drops, the air gets drier and your skin is starting to lose moisture.
You need to keep in mind that even when the jeans and sweaters are covering your skin, your face is still exposed to the cold and you need to take good care of it.
Here we bring you 7 tips to take good care of your skin in fall:
1. Sunscreen is your best ally:
Just because the weather is getting colder doesn't mean you should leave your sunscreen at home. Get a sunscreen with SPF15 at least so you'll avoid skin cancer risk.
2. Hydrate frequently:
This is a basic tip for skin care. In the fall, you should switch to an alcohol-free toner, because it doesn't dry the skin when the weather is getting colder.
3. Oil-Based Moisturizer:
To avoid dry skin during fall, you need an oil-based moisturizer, as it's compatible with most skin types. Here's a little tip: Apply a thick layer of moisturizer to all the areas directly affected by the cold, so the skin won't crack.
4. Switch from lotion to cream:
As the temperature drops, you need a thicker moisturizer. Creams are the perfect ally: they provide a thicker barrier, reduce water loss from your skin and keeps your skin hydrated.
5. Protect your lips:
Cracked lips are a sign that the weather is getting colder and it's affecting your skin. Lib balms will help you to avoid cracked lips and stay fresh and smooth.
6. Hand cream is a MUST:
Start moisturizing your hands in winter to avoid dry skin. Keep a hand cream in your purse so you can moisturize your hands anywhere.
7. Don't forget your feet:
In winter, your feet are going to be stuck inside your boots for months. Get a foot scrub and take care of them daily so you can rock your sandals in summer again.
