It’s officially Fall. And if you live in a climate that is changing, you are probably feeling a big difference in your skin.
Fall means cooler weather, drier air, gusty wind and less sunlight. Changes that can make our skin feel less hydrated, tighter and more susceptible to sensitivities, discoloration and uneven skin tone.
How can you uplevel your skin care routine for the fall, to make sure your skin keeps healthy and looking vibrant?
Here are 5 tips to improve the way you take care of your skin this fall:
But do it gently. With the climate change from warm humidity to cooler drier air, our skin can start feeling and looking dull and flaky.
One of the best things we can do to combat this, and support our skin’s natural regeneration process, is to exfoliate at least 1 to 2 times per week. Our skin needs a little help navigating the seasonal transition from the warm moist summer air to windier and drier days and nights. We suggest using gentle powders, like oat flour, chickpea flour and rice flour and dampening with some warm water to cleanse and exfoliate your face.
