It’s finally pumpkin spice season and as summer comes to an end it’s time to help your skin transition from hot and humid days to cooler and dryer with a few updates to your skincare routine. Our skin gets used to the moisture in the air during the summer and when cooler weather drives down the moisture in the air which can lead to dryness and increased sensitivity. Although temperature changes in our sunny area arent quite as drastic as in other parts of the country the change is enough to cause irritation especially for those who deal with eczema or psoriasis.
Try a Thicker Moisturizer
A thicker moisturizer helps to compensate for the loss of moisture in the air. With a thicker layer of moisturizer, your skin is able to retain more moisturize plus it helps to create a better barrier for your skin.
Keep Using Sunscreen
Although summer may be over it is still important to keep up with your sunscreen. Harmful rays are still present despite the cooler temperatures and can penetrate your skin causing even more dryness, accelerating the aging process, and increasing your risk of skin cancer. We recommend the Sanitas Solarblock which is a safe and natural option that offers you complete protection from the full spectrum of UV rays through its antioxidant nutrient blend. Make sure you cover all of your skin that’s exposed and don’t forget your lips which often suffer during this seasonal transition! Our Bella Skin by Bellagena now offers a Lip Crack Tinted Lip SPF-45 which is a physical sunblock for your lips but also works as an amazing moisturizing treatment. Visit us at the spa and pick up both products as a staple for your fall skincare routine.
Add a Humidifier
The lack of moisture in the air can take its toll on your skin and adding a physical humidifier can work wonders and help boost your efforts to keep your skin hydrated and healthy over the cooler months. By investing in a humidifier you ensure that the air inside your home stays moisturized enough while your skin interacts with the air.
So much of our skincare relies on our nutrition and what we put into our bodies. It is important to keep your body hydrated from the inside out, year-round, so make sure you are keeping up with your water throughout the day. Increasing your Vitamin C intake during this time will not only help to boost your immune system during the cold and flu season but it also helps with your collagen production.
