Change is in the air, and saying goodbye to summer means saying hello to a new skincare regimen. In those hot summer months, we are more likely to sweat and produce oils. As a result, many of us switch to a lighter skincare regimen. However, as the heat turns to cool in these autumn months, our skin is more susceptible to dryness and irritation. Fall is the season of change, and HappyMe has the inside tips on keeping your skin forever fresh, no matter the season.
Stay moisturized during the fall season is key to maintaining beautiful skin. Choosing an oil-based facial wash is an excellent means to protecting skin’s natural moisture. Look for washes infused with naturally balancing oils like Rosemary and Lavender. These essential oils are not only great for sealing in moisture, but they are also powerful acne-fighters and healers. Something else to consider when choosing a wash for fall: steer clear of aggressive chemicals that can contribute to the drying of skin. Sometimes, when our skin becomes overly dry, it overcompensates by producing more oil, which may lead to breakouts.
As an added backup against the windy weather, be sure to have a reliable moisturizer. In fact, if you are prone to acne, it might be a good idea to find a two-in-one moisturizer that can clear skin and hydrate at the same time. Better yet, look for a three-in-one product that won’t only moisturize and fight off acne-causing bacteria, but one that will also provide broad-spectrum protection against UV rays. That’s right, just because the sky is grey, it doesn’t mean you can skimp on sunscreen. In fact, in overcast weather we are even more prone to damage caused by UV rays. So lather up on the sunscreen!
You’ve got the proper face wash, moisturizer, and protection, but what about the rest of your body? Autumn is a great time to switch to a cream based body wash to help give skin that extra boost in moisture. Also, adapt a reliable body lotion and don’t forget your hands. While our bodies are often covered up, our hands can become especially susceptible to the effects of weather. Skin on the fingers may crack and become chapped, so it is a good idea to keep a reliable hand cream on you at all times. HappyMe’s Hand Repair offers SPF 30 and is infused with anti-aging antioxidants and healing essential oils. Plus, it smells great.
With your seasonal skincare system in swing, you’ll have more time to focus on more important things, like buying a new fall wardrobe.
