Changing seasons often calls for trouble, especially when it comes to our skin. In welcoming the cooler climate, our skin can take a hit as we expose ourselves to the dry air, central heating, dust particles in the wind and other pollutants that cause us to have breakouts and acne.
This doesn’t mean you need to lock yourself indoors all season long. There is an easy fix to combatting the change in weather — provided you maintain a good skincare regimen and take care of your skin to boost overall skin health.
The more you make it a habit to put your skincare first, the more these habits will become second nature to you and you’ll never skip a step no matter how tired and sleepy you are.
Beauty Tips to Maintain Flawless Skin During Autumn
The following beauty tips will help you get through the red and gold season with skin that will wow everyone, including you!
1. Exfoliating regularly is key
As beautiful the fall season is, it also comes with drying skin. However, there’s a way to fix that with exfoliating. Exfoliating twice a week will keep your skin looking healthy and bring its natural glow back by increasing cellular regeneration and removing dead skin cells.
By making exfoliation a habit, you improve your overall skin health, leaving it hydrated and increasing the absorption of moisturizers and serums. Make sure to choose a natural exfoliator in order to avoid any unnecessary added chemicals.
2. Remember to moisturize
We’re often exposed to many pollutants and dust in the air that can have very damaging effects on the skin. As we spend more time outdoors, our skin can take a hit from these pollutants and can often be left feeling dry and flaky.
In order to keep your skin hydrated and feeling smooth, moisturizing should be an integral part of your skincare routine. Stay away from moisturizers that have alcohol and try out a natural facial oil to keep your skin looking healthy.
3. Sunscreen is still necessary
Even though we’ve said goodbye to the summer months, that doesn’t mean it’s time to skip the sunscreen. We are still exposed to the sun’s harmful rays every day and we need to protect our skin from them.
Opt for natural sunscreen or even a natural moisturizer that includes SPF. Try to use a minimum of SPF 15 in order for the sunscreen to be effective.
4. Invest in a cleansing brush
Treat yourself to a spa experience in your very home with a facial cleansing brush. These cleansing brushes are easy to use and are extremely effective in removing excess dirt and makeup without having to use too much force.
Cleansing brushes are available in every makeup and skincare store and also come with the additional advantage of treating and preventing acne.
5. Stay hydrated with water
Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated also involves maintaining a healthy diet and drinking lots of water. Dehydration due to lack of water can leave your skin looking dry and flaky and further reduces skin health.
It is recommended to drink at least 8 glasses (250 ml each) of water every day. Try to avoid too much alcohol and sugary drinks as these can aggravate the skin and cause breakouts.
