Fall Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin
- Posted on: Sep 27 2023
Great shifts in the weather, no matter if they are hot or cold, can cause great stress to your skin. This can make preexisting conditions grow worse or cause brand-new ones to appear. Fall is particularly harsh on your complexion, with its unpredictable changes, which is why you should prepare a good battle plan for your skin.
With the changing of seasons, comes the changes of skincare products in your skincare regimen. You might be asking yourself, “what are the things that need to be updated in your skincare routine?” or “What are the best ways to ensure your skin looks nice and glowing, without any blemishes?” Read our blog to find out how you should be taking care of your skin this season.
How Fall Affects Your Skin’s Health
Fall weather may be different depending on the climate you live in. In some places, like for us in Florida, it’s a slightly cooler version of summer, whereas in other areas it’s a little bit warmer than true winter. Regardless of where you live, the air tends to be cooler and drier in fall, which calls for a change in your skincare routine.
Below are a few ways in which fall weather can affect your skin:
- Rain and wind can make your skin much more sensitive, causing redness and irritation
- Cool temperatures can make your skin feel drier
- Increased risk of sun damage, as you may not wear as much sunblock as you did in the summertime
- Dry weather can cause the skin to produce more sebum, leading to acne
- Low humidity can make skin conditions like eczema much worse
Proper skin care is essential for your skin to keep up with these changes.
Top Tips for Fall Skincare
The Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa team has the following tips for those who are transitioning from summer to fall skincare routines:
Add in a Hydrating Serum
Using a moisturizer is one thing, but adding in a hydrating serum, which contains actives that get into the skin more potently, takes your hydration game to the next level. Our intensive moisturizing serum is easily absorbed by your skin and allows immediate moisture enhancement, providing suppleness and softness all season long.
Keep Using Sunscreen
Yes, UV radiation is at its strongest during the summer months, but this doesn’t mean the sun will stop shining during the fall, especially in Florida. Sun damage can occur any day, any time, and anywhere. UV ray exposure can not only lead to skin damage but also cancer, which is why it is important to apply it every morning before you go out. Even if the sun isn’t as strong during the fall season, products such as the Tinted Natural Defense SPF 30 will be the perfect addition to your skincare routine.
Use a Thicker Moisturizer
The dog days of summer are the perfect time to use more lightweight formulas, but come the cooler months, it’s better to opt for a thicker moisturizer. Thicker moisturizers are a great way to lock in and retain moisture. Our Timeless Moisture is packed with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by dehydration and hydrate and nourish without feeling oily.
Work in a Retinol
Retinol is known as the anti-aging gold standard and with good reason. But because it can cause photosensitivity which can lead to redness and inflammation, it’s a good rule of thumb to avoid it or at least cut down on it during the summer. Come fall, it’s a whole other story! Our Vita A Serum with Peptides works wonders for your skin and reduces the appearance of age spots, sun damage, and rough skin.
Prepare Your Skin for the Fall Season
Fall brings many beautiful things, but it can also be very challenging on your skin. Focus on keeping your skin moisturized to counter the drying of the air.
