Go for a gentler and less-drying cleanser.
Harsh cleansers can be great after sweaty, humid days at the beach, but they are better left for the summertime. Instead, opt for a more gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of essential oils as the weather cools down.
Cooler air causes dryer skin, which puts your body into overdrive to produce more oil. This extra oil and dead skin-cell build up from summertime leads to clogged pores, which is why it’s essential to amp up your exfoliation game in the Fall. Try one of our Wise Aesthetics recommended exfoliants and exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week. Or, pamper yourself and schedule an exfoliating facial treatment with one of our talented aestheticians today.
Go for a heavier, more hydrating moisturizer.
Lightweight moisturizer can be great in summer months, but as the seasons change go for a heavier and more hydrating moisturizer. Skin is more prone to dryness and cracking in harsh weather, so it’s important to find a moisturizer with maximum hydration and protection.
Don’t skip out on SPF.
Even though the sun doesn’t seem like a concern in colder months, 90% of the sun’s rays penetrate clouds which can cause damage to your skin. Protect your skin from harmful sun damage even in overcast weather by including broad spectrum SPF into your daily skincare routine.
Take shorter showers.
Lengthy, hot showers can wreak havoc on your skin, as they strip away essential oils and cause extra dry skin. Shorter, luke-warm showers can keep your skin from drying out as much in the colder months.
Don’t forget about lips.
In colder temperatures it’s important to keep your lips hydrated to prevent drying out and cracking. Take care of chapped lips overnight by applying a smoothing primer before bed. Your lips don’t have oil glands or pores, which makes them more susceptible to drying out in colder, dryer weather. One of our staff favorites for healthy, plump lips is the Revision YouthFull Lip Replenisher, which you can find in-store.
