SKINCARE FOR FALL
The seasons are changing and here in Utah it’s nearly fall!
The leaves are changing to a golden color with vibrant reds and surrounding brilliant oranges! My skin is changing as well! I seem to have dry patches of skin on my face generally around my nose and around my cheek area. This is the time where some with oily skin might notice their skin turns a bit normal, or those with normal skin might consider their skin is suddenly dry.You might need to change up your skin care products and switch them accordingly. If you aren’t sure whether your skin needs a new regime,try talking to a consultant at a cosmetics counter. Many times they can ask you simple questions to see what skin care type you fall in.
I think oily based scrubs are perfect for fall and winter because you are getting the exfoliating benefits with the extra bonus of hydrating oils. (most people have dryer skin during the cold seasons) And when it comes to oily scrubs, the choices are endless! You can find scrubs that have a lot of oil swimming on top all the way to scrubs that are more of a solid consistency. I love skincare and there are so many great ones out there don’t be afraid to venture out and find your additional holly grail products!
Moisturize Every Single Day!
I can’t stress this enough; if you want to keep dry skin at bay, you must hydrate your skin on a daily basis. The best time to apply your lotion is right after you’ve dried off after your shower or bath. Seal in the moisture that’s already been absorbed into your skin.
Sunscreen is a daily essential, so don’t set it aside.
Dry or combination skin?Use a moisturizer with SPF 15 at the minimum and reapply with a facial sunscreen throughout the day as needed. One of the best facial sunscreens around is Clarins: UV Plus Day Screen with SPF 40. It’s light as can be mineral base makes it soak in fast with a matte finish. I apply this in the morning before applying my makeup, it helps fight of the rays of the day and keep my skin looking great.
Oily Skin? Apply a light moisturizer to your body as soon as you leave the bath or shower. Use oil-free moisturizers with at least 15 SPF sunscreen for best results. These moisturizers are made to absorb quickly into the skin and last all day long without causing shine or exacerbating oily skin.
Your hands are in and out of water on a very regular basis, so you need to apply moisturizer more frequently to your hands than the rest of your body. That’s why it’s so important to have a hand creme in your handbag, I carry a few different kinds in my handbag at all times!
