6 Skincare Must-Do's This Fall
As the leaves change and the weather cools down, it's time to start thinking about your fall skincare routine. The changing seasons can have a big impact on your skin, so it's important to adjust your routine to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. In this guide, we'll cover six must-do's for fall skincare to help you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion.
#1 Keep your skin bright
One of the most important things you can do for your skin in the fall is to keep it bright and radiant. Cooler weather often goes hand in hand with dull and tired skin. To combat this, incorporate vitamin C into your routine. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help to brighten and even out your skin tone. Look for serums or moisturizers that contain vitamin C and use them daily, preferably in the morning before your sunscreen!
Beauty Stat's vitamin C serum from the Spring 2023 box is the perfect choice.
#2 Maintain that gorgeous glow
In addition to keeping your skin bright, you also want to maintain that gorgeous glow that you worked so hard to achieve over the summer. To do this, use a gradual self-tanner to keep your skin looking bronzed and healthy. Gradual self-tanners are great because they build up gradually over time, so you can control the intensity of the color. Look for a formula that also contains moisturizing ingredients to keep your skin hydrated. Whatever you do, stay out of the tanning bed! Tanning beds can increase your risk of developing melanoma and other skin cancers, they are NEVER a safe option. The only safe tan is one that comes from a bottle!
#3 Keep your skin hydrated
One of the biggest challenges in the fall is keeping your skin hydrated. The cooler temperatures and drier air can cause your skin to become dry and flaky. To combat this, use a hydrating serum or moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, helping to keep your skin hydrated and plump. It is best applied onto damp skin and often sealed with a moisturizer on top.
#4 Keep your skin refreshed
In addition to keeping your skin hydrated, you also want to keep it refreshed. Use a hydrating mist throughout the day to refresh your skin and keep it looking and feeling its best. Look for a mist that contains soothing ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile to help calm any irritation or redness. Hypochlorous acid sprays are also great for redness and thermal spring water sprays can be cooling and refreshing!
#5 Keep your skin smooth
Exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine, but it's especially important in the fall when your skin can become dry and flaky. Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin. Remember, exfoliating too often can have detrimental effects on the skin, so be sure to pace yourself!
#6 Keep your skin barrier healthy
Finally, it's important to keep your skin barrier healthy in the fall. Your skin barrier is the outermost layer of your skin and it helps to protect your skin from environmental stressors like pollution and harsh weather. To keep your skin barrier healthy, use a moisturizer that contains ceramides. Ceramides are lipids that help to strengthen your skin barrier. You can think of them as the glue between your skin cells, they work to keep the skin barrier intact and strong.
Fall skincare is all about maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion. By incorporating these six must-do's into your routine, you can keep your skin looking and feeling its best all season long.
