Summer has come and gone and with it the blazing heat of the sun. But just because fall is here doesn’t mean you can slack up on your skincare regimen. Here are some skincare tips to help you transition into the fall season while maintaining a beautiful, acne free, and dewy appearance.
Ditch Your Oil-Robbing Products
Alcohol-based toners and astringents and cleansers with harsh detergents won’t do you any favors in the unforgiving dry fall air. Opt for a moisturizing Aloe Vera Witchhazel to tone your skin. Also, pick up cleansers that have more gentle ingredients, like Pur~lisse’s Pur~delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Moisturizing is just as, if not more, important in the fall. I’m still on the hunt for an all-natural daily moisturizer. But in the meantime, I’m using a light avocado oil. Natural oils like avocado oil are known to hydrate the skin and increase its elasticity.
Don’t Put That SPF Away
A SPF product is important year round, but if you’re anything like me, you detest the pastiness of sunscreen products. You’re in luck; many natural oils have been scientifically proven to have SPF properties. They will not only prevent dryness but also protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays.
Drink Plenty Of Water
It is just as important to continue to drink plenty of water during the fall months as it is in the summer. Water is essential for a brilliant complexion in all seasons.
Watch Your Diet
At this point we all know the saying very well… “you are what you eat.” Your diet will effect you skin. What you put in your body will make a world of difference when it comes to preventing dry skin and acne.
