Blog - Autumn Skin Care Routine
With the change in seasons it’s time to switch up your skin care for Autumn. Summer is a distant memory now and it’s time to rejuvenate your post summer skin and give your skin the best possible care during the colder months.
Post-summer skin looks dehydrated and sallow, and exfoliation is extremely important as it gets rid of the dead damaged cells. This step will prepare the skin to absorb more moisture and nutrition. once or twice a week is a great way of getting st Retinoids. These products allow daily skin renewal, revealing a fresher & healthier look.
Over-exposure of the skin during the summer may mean that it's suffering from dehydration. The moisture lost needs to be properly supplemented before the onset of winter. Moisturiseat least twice daily after cleansing. Dry, normal and combination skin types may use a light serum, gel or lotion. For dryer skin types, choose a thicker cream based moituriser meant for dry skin. Along with your facial skin, you need to take care of your body too. Be sure to take short warm baths and apply moisturiser onto your damp skin.
Summer means dehydration and therefore more water intake for replenishing the moisture lost, but that should not change once the temperatures drop. In fact, you should continue to drink at least eight glasses of water a day throughout the year, irrespective of seasonal changes. This will help you to flush out the body toxins better thereby ensuring a problem-free skin.
If you've over exposed your skin this summer and are now suffering with sun spots and pigmentation - go for products which exfoliate the skin and contain lightening ingredients like kojic acid. And don’t forget to use sunscreen to prevent more appearing, sunscreen should be worn all year round, not just for the summer.
If there was just one product I could recommend people to use daily it would be sunscreen. Even when it's grey and cloudy outside, the damaging UVA and UVB rays can penetrate cloud and glass. It's important to choose a sunscreen that protects against both as they can both damage your skin.
