Updating Your Fall Skincare Routine

It’s officially Autumn, and pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider donuts, and crisp fall leaves have already returned. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when many people experience dry skin, which leads to itchiness and irritation.

But, with a few tweaks to your skincare routine, your skin can be healthy and glowing every season of the year.

Why Adjust Your Skincare Routine for Fall?

During the summer, the weather is hot and humid, so your skin will likely produce more oil and require lighter moisturizers. However, during the fall and winter, the temperature cools down, and there is less humidity in the air, making the air drier — along with your skin. Dry skin can lead to seasonal breakouts, itching, tightness, and dead skin buildup. This calls for heavier moisturizers to protect the skin.

How To Adjust Your Skincare Routine for Fall

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

If you have recently been using a lightweight moisturizer, make the swap to a heavier moisturizer. The key is to look for an option with a thicker formula that includes hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps retain water, keeping your skin looking hydrated and healthy.

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may want to look for a non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic moisturizer, which will be better for preventing breakouts.

Exfoliate Less

Exfoliating is great for removing dead skin and preventing blocked pores. However, it can also strip the skin of necessary oils if overused. Since your skin will already have a tendency to be drier in the fall, exfoliating one to two times a week is more than enough.

Wear SPF

Sunscreen is important for protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which are still a concern even in the fall. You may opt for a thicker, moisturizing sunscreen, such as one that contains squalene, hyaluronic acid, or Vitamin E, to continue to hydrate the skin.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

Foaming cleansers are fun and feel great, but they can also strip the skin of necessary moisture. Select a balanced cleanser, such as water-based products, that can hydrate the skin without stripping it.
