Yes! It’s time to pack up your sandals and sundress and dig out your sweaters and boots! And just as you need to change your wardrobe you need to switch up your skin care routine to protect and moisturize against the environmental changes which impact the way our skin behaves.
In the fall/winter season, the air turns drier and this affects our skin. We are prone to more dryness and flakiness so you need to start using richer, high-performance moisturizers that provide deep hydration and long-lasting moisture.
We all have our basic 3-step skin care system but that might not be enough with the changing season. Using products from one skincare line helps ensure that you don’t overuse specific ingredients and they make your skin happier!
Makeup artist and YouTube Beauty Blogger Michelle Phan explains that weather can certainly have effects on skin, particularly its ability to contain moisture. That basically means that if you find your skin to be drying out more than usual in the summer or winter, it could be because you’re in need of cleanser that will be a little gentler on your skin.
Additionally, Phan mentions a couple other reasons that might attribute to a need for a skincare switch-up, such as aging, as well as traveling. She explains that if you’re planning to travel to a populated city, like New York, there’s a chance that the city’s pollution can have an impact on skin’s appearance. As for aging, hormonal changes tend to be the likely culprit of skincare woes.
Here are the best tips for your fall/winter skincare routine.
Step 1 – Cleanse/Detox
