5 Tips To Fall-ify Your Beauty Regimen!

Share this:

Fall is here and as the season changes so should your beauty routine.  As the temperature starts to drop, cold and dry air saps out your natural moisture, leaving skin dry, chapped and irritated. Check out my 5 tips on how to get your skin prepped for the fall!

Don’t Loose the sunscreen!

You’re no longer beach bumming, but your skin still needs protection from the  sun’s damaging rays. Oh and by the way this goes for all skin tones chica! Use an oil-free moisturizer that contains at least SPF 30 everyday.  I like Neutrogena’s oil-free moisture SPF 35 ($12.99, cvs.com).

Switch Moisturizers

The weather change can leave your skin desperate for some hydrating relief. Though you may need a heavier moisturizer, make sure to opt for an oil-free, non-comedogenic lotion to prevent future breakouts. My dermatologist has always recommended Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion ($9.19, drugstore.com).

Chill with the Hot Water

Nothing feels better than a nice, long hot shower on colder days. But hot water can do a number on your skin. Try taking shorter showers with warm water rather than steaming hot. And make sure to apply a strong moisturizer right after patting your skin dry to help trap moisture.  Try Vaseline’s Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture ($8.49, drugstore.com).

 Time to Exfoliate

Flaky, dry skin tends to lead to clogged pores and a dull complexion. Exfoliating treatments are a great way to remove dead skin cells, leaving skin polished and radiant. Opt for an exfoliating face wash like St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub ($3.79, Walgreens.com).

Spa Time

If you were spending a lot of time this summer in the sun, it may be time to treat yourself to a facial. Can’t afford to hit the spa? Try an at home hydrating mask like Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst ($22, sephora.com).
