Pretty soon the weather will cool down, the leaves will fall, and the air will become drier. All of that means your fall skincare routine has got to be up-to-par with the seasonal change to ensure your skin remains in pristine condition.
Our team at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates has put together a short guide to help you prepare for the upcoming weather changes 👇
Yes, you still need your SPF
Don’t let anyone tell you that because summer is fading, you won’t need your daily SPF. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Regardless of the time of year, UVA and UVB rays are still hitting the Earth’s atmosphere, meaning the sun can still damage your skin even in the middle of fall. So continue using your favorite SPF to steer clear of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of aging caused by harmful rays.
Grab a heavier moisturizer
While your skin may be fine with light moisture and serums in the summer, the dry air of fall and winter will try to suck out as much moisture from your skin as it can. Therefore, you should definitely add a great moisturizer or cream to your fall skincare essentials list. This way, you can avoid dry patches and flakiness. As a bonus, proper moisturization can help slow down your skin’s aging process.
Enhance your exfoliation efforts
You should exfoliate all year round, but exfoliation is also vital for post-summer care. With products that contain chemical exfoliants like glycolic or lactic acid, you jumpstart the skin’s cellular turnover to help remove old, dead skin cells. As a result, your skin will look brighter and more youthful, so you don’t have to lose your summer glow even in the fall.
