Fall/Winter Skincare Repair tips

When we enter the cooler fall/winter months- our skin can need a little more care. Skin can become easily and quickly dehydrated, as well as irritated with the change in weather. If you are experiencing any of the above concerns, try the following suggestions to help nurture and care for your skin.

1) Switch your Gel/ Foaming Cleanser for a Lotion or Cream Cleanser

Switching out your gel or foaming cleanser for something creamier will instantly help increase hydration and help with skin irritation or dryness. Even those with normal or combination skin can benefit from this by alternating between gel and cream cleansers to ensure optimal hydration!

  • Dr. Hauschka Cleansing milk

2) Add in an Oil or Serum to your morning and/or nightly skincare routine

Adding a moisturizing serum or oil to your daily skincare routine can offer significant improvement in the appearance, feel and texture of your skin. Working on the deeper layers of the epidermis; serums and oils offer a solution, rather than a temporary fix to dehydrated and dry complexions.

3) Switch to a more hydrating and protective Moisturizer

Still not finding relief from dehydration, dryness or irritation? It may be time to invest in a fall/winter Moisturizer that offers more moisture and protection. Many people will require a different moisturizer in summer and the fall/winter months for optimal skin health. Switch your lotion for a cream, or your cream for a balm.

4) Add in a hydrating Mask to your weekly routine

If you are not up for revamping your entire skin care wardrobe- try adding in a weekly mask to help nourish and hydrate the skin. Masks have the ability to significantly improve the appearance of the skin in a short amount of time- due to their high quantity of nutrient rich ingredient, in higher percentage than your daily moisturizer. Once or twice a week, for 15-20 minutes can help make the transition of seasons much easier on your complexion.

4) Switch to more nourishing body products

Don’t forget the skin on your body! We often overlook the skin on our body until it is too late, and we are very dry or irritated. Just like our face, the skin on our body will often time become more dry and sensitized in the fall or winter months. Try switching your body wash and body lotion to a more soothing and hydrating option.

Check out the following hydrating body products in store!

  • Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Wash
  • Hugo Naturals Unscented body butter
