Summer is officially over, so of course, it’s time to switch up your skincare routine. We all know that the cold, frosty wind isn’t the best treatment for our skin; it can leave it dry, calloused and red raw. So, instead of suffering through it, equip yourself with the right weapons (well, knowledge and treatments!) to fight back and have flawless skin throughout this dastardly season. To help you, we’ve compiled a few autumn skin care tips so that you can look and feel beautiful!
Hydration for the Nation!
You may not think it, but it is just as important in autumn and winter as it is in summer to keep you and your skin hydrated. Doing this is simple… drinking water! H2O really is your best friend. It can keep your skin looking healthy as it helps to flush out toxins from the body.
Exfoliate With Care
When exfoliating, do so with care as the winter can dry out your skin leaving it flaky and sore. By exfoliating too hard or too much you can cause further damage to your skin, which isn’t pleasant! So choose gentle products designed for sensitive skin, rather than harsh chemicals!
Beware of the Sun
Although, it may not feel like it, the winter sun can still damage your skin. You don’t need to wear a high factor sunscreen every day, however it is advised that you do still protect your skin – there are many BB creams available which are complete with an added touch of sunscreen! Protecting your skin this way can prevent wrinkles and other signs of early aging.
Wash Your Gloves & Scarves
This is the season for wearing gloves, scarves and hats, and you usually do that every day. Despite this, people rarely wash these items of clothing. Your gloves pick up dirt throughout the day, not to mention the fact that your hands sweat – the same for your scarf, although it lies around your neck. Wash these items to keep them clean and prevent dirt from clogging your pores!
Keep your skin looking utterly stunning this season by following these important, yet simplistic autumn skin care tips! We’re sure you’ll feel much better inside and out. So don’t worry about the cold – simply beat it!
