It’s almost fall, which means it’s time to adjust our skincare routines! With cooler temperatures (we hope!) and drier air on the horizon, our skin requires some extra attention and care. Protect your skin from the elements and maintain a healthy and radiant complexion with these top skincare trends:
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Fall often brings drier air, which can strip our skin of its natural moisture. To combat this, incorporate hydrating products into your skincare routine such as moisturizers with rich, nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. These powerful hydrators lock in moisture, leaving your skin soft and supple. Also, don’t forget to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
Embrace Nourishing Oils
Plant-based oils have gained popularity for their ability to deeply nourish the skin and restore its natural balance. In the fall, consider using facial oils as part of your nighttime routine to provide an extra layer of protection against dryness and environmental stressors. Jojoba oil, rosehip oil, and argan oil are excellent options to keep your skin glowing and rejuvenated.
Focus on Barrier Repair
With the changing weather, it’s essential to support and strengthen your skin’s protective barrier. Seek out products containing ingredients like niacinamide and peptides, which work to repair and fortify the skin’s barrier, preventing moisture loss and improving its ability to defend against external irritants.
Adapt with Antioxidants
Antioxidants help shield our skin from free radical damage caused by pollution and UV rays. During the fall, incorporate products containing vitamin C, vitamin E, and green tea extracts into your skincare regimen. Not only will these antioxidants protect your skin, but they’ll also help brighten your complexion and help to fade any summer sunspots.
Don't Skimp on Sunscreen
Even as the days get shorter, don’t forget to apply sunscreen every day. The sun’s harmful rays can cause skin damage year-round. Pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and consider using a tinted or mineral sunscreen for added protection and a touch of coverage.
Enjoy Self-Care Rituals
Fall is the perfect time to indulge in self-care rituals that nourish both your skin and relax your mind. Treat yourself to a relaxing facial mask once or twice a week, using ingredients like honey, oatmeal, and chamomile to soothe and revitalize your complexion. Or consider getting a professional facial to start the season off right. Shore Beauty School offers a variety of facials at its Beauty Clinic, so you can indulge in some pampering at a discounted price.
Remember, your skin’s needs may change with the season, so be attentive to its signals and adjust your regimen accordingly. With the right approach and a touch of self-care, you’ll be ready to welcome autumn with a glowing and confident face.
