Essential Beauty Tips
Fall skincare routine for cold weather months
1. Use Milder Products
If you like to use squeaky-clean foaming face wash daily, reduce to once a week. Or you’d be stripping your epidermis of the very important barrier that it constantly tries to create against the aggression of cold wind, rain, snow.
3. Face Oils
If you don’t use face oils year around, now it’s the time to add them to your skincare routine. Even oily and combination skin types can benefit from using (specific) face oils, you must not fear them. One thing you always must remember is: do not leave your house and venture into cold weather with a face cream freshly applied. It will attract the cold and dehydrate your skin almost instantly. For this, a face oil is a better option. Rub it into your hands to warm it up, pat it on your face and let it sink in. It will moisturize deep within while also creating a barrier from the cold, aggressive winds and chill outdoors. If you have particularly oily skin, you might want to apply a thick layer of oil only at night and not in the AM, to wake-up to plumped and hydrated skin.
2. Chemical Peel VS.Mechanical Scrub
In order to decongest our skin and avoid dead skin build-up, exfoliation is still important even during the colder months. But instead of opting for your usual scrub that could leave your skin dryer than before, however gentle that may be, try a peel. When you use chemical peels “the result is a thinner Stratum Corneum that is more flexible and compact, reflects more light and gives the skin a more youthful overall appearance, improved skin texture and a reduction in fine lines and hyperpigmentation”
4. Add Moisture-rich Foods to Your Diet
Not only your body, but your skin and hair have specific needs during the colder months. You should add moisture and vitamin-rich foods to your daily diet.
5. Don’t Forget SPF!
Finally, this will come as no surprise: even if your days of basking in the sun are a distant memory, don’t forget to apply SPF everyday. And that means on those cloudy, rainy days, too. Did you know that sun rays are still passing through even on cloudy days? The easiest way to protect your skin from future problems (fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dehydration etc.) is simply applying a good SPF all year-round.
