How to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall
Dermatologists have discovered that skin balance depends on atmospheric conditions like humidity and temperature. Healthy skin is a perfectly hydrated one irrespective of the seasonal effects at any time. As seasons come and go, you must follow some routines to keep your skin healthy and protected.
You probably are used to a particular skin care regimen over a long time, but seasons change year in year out. Therefore, you must align your skincare pattern with the current weather condition to maintain proper health because your skin is bound to change as the weather changes.
Luckily, it is quite easy to put together useful products and routines for the fall season. Below are vital tips on transitioning from summer to fall (or autumn) regarding your skincare regimen.
Change your Summer Cleanser
Summer is known for its humid and hazy conditions which permit you to use lightweight, foamy cleansers to remove excess oil from your face. As fall is gradually drawing closer, you should get rid of those harsh cleansers and replace them with those that can lock in extra moisture. You need all the vital oils that will protect your skin in the frigid autumn weather.
Use this instead: mix foam cleansers and stay away from highly acidic products. Glycolic and salicylic acids should be avoided during cold weather because of their harshness on the skin when the temperature is low. Although, they may be useful for other purposes. Use gentle moisturizing cleansers that will richly hydrate your skin.
Limit Excessive Hot Showers
Sincerely, it is relaxing to begin and end your day with a hot bath or shower. Contrary to the enjoyment you derive from doing that, it is not an ideal routine. Excessively hot and long showers do not benefit your skin and hair.
Hot water can scald your body and is very harsh to your entire skin, including your face. It doesn't improve your skin moisture but repels essential oils and nutrients from your body.
Do this instead: Allow your skin to rest from exposure to hot baths or showers. Commit yourself to use moisturizing and gentle cleansing products. Ensure that you don't rub your towel harshly on your skin to prevent irritation. Just pat your body dry by dabbing a soft towel or cotton cloth gently.
Level Up Your Moisturizer
As you change your wardrobe after summer, you also need to replace your cosmetics as the fall season approaches.
Your skin will become drier due to moisture loss during autumn and winter. Hence, you must incorporate more hydrating techniques than you did in summer to protect your body.
Switch from the lightweight cosmetics of summer to heavier and creamier products in fall and winter to conform with the seasonal changes. Introduce a good face oil for beneficial results.
Apply a Serum or Facial Oil
With your central heating system turned on, you will need extra help to fight dry skin. During the fall season, you will discover that your skin craves oil application.
Apply oil as a base before your moisturizer if you notice that your complexion requires a little enhancement. You can also get creative by mixing couple drops of oil with an ample amount of your moisturizer for a higher dose of hydration.
The molecules of serums are quite smaller than that of moisturizers. Hence, they penetrate deeper into the skin faster. Select a good serum that contains active minerals and vitamins to combat dryness and dullness.
Apply Facial Gua Sha
Over time, Gua Sha has been discovered to be good for reducing inflammation, facial tension, sinus pressure, and puffiness. Get more information about Gua Sha on this page.

One Last Thing: Don't Stop Using SPF
It is a recommendation by the FDA that you should use SPF 30 or broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly for protection from harmful UV rays. Don't assume that you do not need sunscreen because you aren't always on the beach.
A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps not only in protecting you from damaging ultraviolet rays or sunburn. It also eliminates premature aging of your skin resulting from overexposure to UV rays. Consider incorporating sun protection into your skincare routine all year long.
That settles it! You are now ready for autumn.
Every skin has its unique properties, so choose your cosmetics with care depending on the season. However, the above tips on skincare regimen for autumn will solve any immediate issues you may be facing currently. Keep your skin radiant and hydrated this autumn.
