With the weather changing and the days getting cooler, it’s time to upgrade your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and happy this fall. Read on and learn how to tweak your routine with the right skincare products…

#1 Swap out summer cleanser

Ditch the wipes and foam cleansers, it’s time to look for a mild, oil-based remover instead to lock in that moisture and cleanse your skin without stripping your skin of those much-needed protective oils. Be sure to avoid cleansers or makeup removers that contain a high acid content, such as salicylic acid and glycol acid, which are a bit too harsh on the skin in colder months.

#2 Boost hydration

The lightweight hydrating gel or lotion that you have been using all summer can no longer handle the job in the colder season. Look for heavier, thicker creams to protect your skin against dryness and harsh winds. Layering skincare products help nourish your dry skin and prevent it from becoming parched. Simply slather on a heavy moisturizing serum and cream. Top it off with a thin layer of beauty oil.

#3 Power up with masks

There’s no such thing as too much hydration when the weather cools down. Stock up on moisturizing gel/cream/sheet masks to use 3 to 4 times a week to provide some much-needed hydration for your seasonally dry complexions. Remember to pick gentle and hydrating masks over those that may leave your skin feeling too stiff and parched.

#4 Exfoliate wisely

A lot of people think that exfoliation can lead to dryness, yet the truth is, it’s the best way to treat parched, flaky skin. During the winter season, skin cells dehydrate and dry faster. So, you should be exfoliating once per week even in winter, in order to buff away those dead cells so new cells can come in healthier and without obstruction. Letting those dead skin cells go can also improve the effectiveness of your moisturizers. Start with a gentle exfoliant and be careful not to overdo it.

#5 Moisturizing lip balm with UV protection

Cold weather and harmful UV rays can leave your lips dry and chapped. It is worth investing in a moisturizing lip balm with UV protection to nourish your lips.

#6 Bring along a hand cream in your handbag

We often overlook our hands. A pocket-size, rich, and buttery hand cream is essential in your handbag to combat the dry and cold fall and winter anytime and everywhere.

#7 Oatmeal warm bath

You feel comfortable with a long and hot shower in the fall and winter. However, hot water makes your skin drier! You can take an oatmeal bath with warm water to soothe dry and itchy skin.

#8 Invest in a humidifier

You should invest money in a misting humidifier and place it near your bed to avoid the loss of skin moisture during sleeping.
