Prepare Your Skin for the Fall Season
Hydrate Your Skin:
The main issue that many people experience specifically in the fall is dehydration of their skin. The skin adjusts itself to the humidity in the summer air and as a result, the indoor air causes the skin to feel stale. It is recommended to use a cream cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer.
Repair Sun Damage:
Your skin receives the majority of sun damage during the summer months, and while the sun’s rays feel amazing, they can also damage your skin. For this, getting a facial with a glycolic peel and looking for products that contain vitamin C is recommended. Vitamin C is the best thing to use on sun-damaged skin because it will create new skin and start the process of shedding some of the summer’s sun-exposed skin.
Ingredients to Look For:
For fall skin care products it is best to look for products containing glycolic and hyaluronic acids, as well as jojoba oil. The acids cushion and hydrate the skin, which will deliver a smoother look and feel. Whereas, jojoba oil provides moisture to the skin all day long and does not evaporate like water based moisturizers can.
