7 Fall Skin Care Tips Your Esthetician Wants You to Know



Skin Care Esthetics

Everyone knows that the summer sun can take a toll on your skin.  But the cooler, drier weather of fall and winter can also play havoc with the balance of nutrients in your skin.  Check out these seven tips to help keep your skin looking great through the fall!

1. Up your moisturizer. Change what you put on your skin just as you change what you wear as the weather cools down. You need to layer up with a richer moisturizer to help prevent moisture loss and replenish it when it happens.

2. Hydrate from the inside out. Hot coffees, teas, and alcoholic beverages become more popular during the colder months, but caffeine and alcohol are dehydrating. Up water consumption to ensure that the effects of dehydration don’t start showing on your skin.

3. Consider swapping your cleanser, too. The same cleanser that removes excess dirt and oil from Summer skin could be too harsh for drier, more sensitive Fall skin. Look for a cream or olive oil-based formula that will comfortably cleanse skin, without leaving it feeling tight and stripped.

4. Don’t forget barrier repair. Incorporate a facial serum with repairing and strengthening ceramides into your daily routine to fix dryness caused by a loss of lipids.

5. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Dry, dehydrated skin ​becomes flaky, producing a layer of dead skin cells that can prevent the complete penetration of active ingredients in your skin care. Regular exfoliation is essential in order to remove these cells and ensure your products can do their job.

6. Sunscreen isn’t just for summer. Cooler weather might be forcing you indoors, but that doesn’t mean you can skip the daily sunscreen. Two-thirds of sun exposure is incidental. It occurs during daily activities like your commute or running errands. Stay protected by applying a broad spectrum sunscreen every day as the last step in your skincare routine.

7. Don’t be a stranger! Book regular appointments with Tracy, our Esthetician, to ensure she’s in the know when it comes to the changes that happen in your skin throughout the year and can recommend exactly what it needs when cold-weather concerns arise.
