As the weather begins to change, and pumpkin spice takes over everything, it’s time to start making changes in your skincare routine to achieve healthy, hydrated, radiant-looking skin. With drier, colder weather, the skin requires more moisture. Keeping skin hydrated is essential to healthy skin in the fall and winter. Keep reading to learn how to achieve beautiful, healthy skin this season!
Switch to a Heavier Moisturizer
While it is imperative to moisturize the skin every day, in the colder months, the skin requires more moisture. Lightweight moisturizers and facial lotions can be ideal for summer but be sure to switch to something thicker in the winter. Switching to a richer, creamier moisturizer for fall will help prevent the skin from looking and feeling dry and dehydrated.
Use Carrier Oils
While carrier oils are lightweight in nature, they also help to keep skin moisturized. Using moisturizers and serums that are infused with carrier oils can help with retaining moisture, anti-aging, increasing hydration, and giving skin a radiant, vibrant glow. Carrier oils such as Grapeseed Oil, Argan Oil, Sweet Almond and Jojoba Oil, work to keep skin hydrated, nourished and deeply moisturized throughout the day.
Use Hydrating Ingredients
While a richer moisturizer can be highly effective at keeping skin hydrated, it is important to ensure that the moisturizer you are using is packed with potent ingredients to keep skin rich, dewy, and hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid is a highly efficacious ingredient when it comes to hydration. Hyaluronic Acid works to deliver intense moisture, infusing skin with healthy hydration. Alkaline Water is another key ingredient when it comes to hydration. Alkaline water helps to hydrate, moisturize, and support the skin’s natural pH balance. Another highly effective ingredient is snow mushroom extract. Snow Mushroom extract works to moisturize and restore dry, thirsty skin. Coconut Water is also infused with properties that help to keep skin moisturized.
No matter how rich and moisturizing, or how effective the ingredients are, if the skin is dead, dry, and flaky, you won’t reap the benefits. Exfoliating is crucial to achieving healthy skin. Exfoliate your skin at least once a week, twice a week if you have oily skin. Exfoliating will help to remove the dead skin cells making it easier for your hydrating serums and moisturizers to penetrate the skin.
These tips, in addition to staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water will help keep skin visibly hydrated all fall long!
