With the weather transitioning from breezy beach days to cool pumpkin picking, it’s important to change your skin care habits to match the lower temperatures and dryness of fall. It’s easy to forget the minor yet crucial alterations to your skin care routine you should make to keep your skin healthy through the changes of season. Let’s talk about some of the changes you can make to stay looking and feeling your best.
Part of what constitutes autumn is drier weather. Therefore, your skin needs more moisture. For dry or combination skin, changing weather means it’s time to change your moisturizer. A more emollient cream instead of a light summer lotion gives your skin’s surface more protection from becoming rough and parched. Even oily complexions sometimes benefit from a richer moisturizer, especially if you take your exercise routine outside to enjoy the weather.
When dry, windy weather strikes, your first casualty may be your lips. If you live in an area where the wind picks up noticeably as the leaves begin to fall, you may want to heighten your lip protection methods. Invest in a decent chap stick or lip protector with zinc and an SPF. If you’re feeling concerned about the state of your lips, look into lip fillers. Lip and dermal fillers work by filling or volumizing areas that have lost volume and/or collagen to ultimately stimulate your own collagen production. You can find a certified top-notch physician to return the luster to your lips on ZendyHealth!
It’s important to keep your skin clean and clear, especially when the dryness of fall strikes. Switching to an exfoliant-based body scrub will keep dead skin from building up and leaving your epidermis feeling dry and worn out. Your exfoliating products should be kind to dry skin and help it retain its moisture. Oil-based sugar scrubs gently remove old skin cells without stripping skin of its moisture. And don’t skip your feet just because you’re not showing them off in sandals; they still need extra exfoliation when they’re tucked into boots. Even more helpful, a photofacial can help clear off the dead skin and spots that build up over time. You can book an inexpensive and top-notch photofacial on ZendyHealth that will help your skin achieve a youthful glow at any age.
Just because you’re not hitting the beach doesn’t mean it’s time to ditch the sunblock. When it cools down, we often forget that the sun is still right there, beating down UV rays just as hard in the fall and winter months as when we’re soaking them up in the summer. Remember to apply a lotion or cream that contains an SPF of 15 or higher when leaving the house for pumpkin-picking, yard-raking or spiked cider walkabouts.
Though we may be out of the pollen danger months of summer, there are plenty of autumn allergens to watch out for. In addition to the usual symptoms (coughing, sneezing, etc), these allergens can cause itchy eyes and runny noses, and constant wiping will lead to redness and swelling. Ragweed pollen is a proven culprit of fall allergies and can ruin anyone’s day. If you’re starting to feel any symptoms, book an allergy test with Zendyhealth. Our certified physicians use the latest in laboratory testing to find out your allergy triggers. The procedure is quick, painless and inexpensive with ZendyHealth’s innovative pricing tool.
