The seasons are changing (FINALLY!), and so should your skincare routine.
As we shift from summer to fall, it’s important to pay attention to how your skin is responding. Be aware of how your skin reacts throughout the day and adjust your routine accordingly.
Here are some tips on how to transition into the new season without skipping a beat!
Try a New Cleanser
Cleansers are an important first step in any routine, but paying attention to skin type is important. For skin that tends to be on the oily side, gel and balancing cleansers work nicely, while creamy or oil-based cleansers are better for dry, mature, or sensitive skin. You’ll be able to tell whether your cleanser is providing enough moisture by how soft or tight your face feels after cleansing. The softer your skin, the more hydration it maintained during the cleansing process. Using a gentle exfoliator a couple times a week to get rid of any dead skin can help prevent dullness and breakouts and assist the body’s natural renewal process.
Change Up Your Moisturizer
As the air becomes cooler and drier, it’s easy for your skin to become dehydrated. If you are someone who has naturally oily skin, you may be able to keep using your summer moisturizer during the day, but you may need to use something a little heavier for night. For normal to dry skin, switch to a heavier or more emollient moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and full of life all day long.
Add Alpha-Hydroxy Acids & Retinol
These skin care ingredients are known to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as dark spots, making them perfect to add to the rotation now that summer’s come to an end and you’ll be spending less time outside in the sun. Try a dark spot corrector, or cleanser.
Come in for an O Peel!
Enzyme and Chemical peels are a wonderful way to kick start the new fall season by treating the discoloration and damage brought on by the summer sun and the autumn’s drying elements. All O Peels are customized specifically for your skin type, and even the most sensitive skin types can benefit from the process.
