Magical Skincare Tips For The Autumn Season
Healthy skin that glows from within requires your proper attention. Every season demands different care for your skin. Autumn not just changes the color of leaves but also affects your skin. Cold and dry air with less humidity, dehydrates the skin that causes dryness and sagging. Especially, if you live in areas with extremely dry and harsh wind, you are more likely to develop rough and itchy skin.
In such cases, you need to make some necessary changes in your skincare routine that will protect it from the harsh environmental effects of the autumn season. We have a list of some effective tips to help you this autumn to get better and brighter skin.
So, let’s get autumn skin by following the given skincare tips and suggestions.
Less Exfoliate, More Moisturize
Though you need to exfoliate your skin all year round, you should do this less in autumn because cold weather makes the skin very dry. So, exfoliate less and hydrate your skin more with a good moisturizer.
Keep your skin moisturized all day to avoid dryness and patchy skin. Autumn can make your skin dry and dull because of the low moisture content in the atmosphere. Dryness can lead to wrinkles and uneven skin tone. So, you need to moisturize your skin properly to keep it soft and supple. Use of a moisturizer with an SPF on top is highly recommended.
Also, use a cleanser that does not make your skin dry. For more dry skin, use a cream cleanser because of its hydration properties. These lock the moisture in the skin and make it plump and soft. They also reduces scars and pigmentation.
Less moisture also makes your lips chapped and crack the feet and hands. So, use an organic lip balm and foot and hand cream. You should also apply lotion to your body to keep it moisturized.
Never Forget the Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a must for every season. Never go out without applying sunscreen otherwise UV rays will adversely affect your skin and cause skin cancer, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and premature aging over time. Even if you are staying in the shade or it is overcast, you still need to apply sunscreen for your skin’s health as the sun’s rays can still get to your skin. Choose a good quality sunscreen with SPF and apply it properly after moisturizing your skin.
Hydration is the key to fresh, healthy, and glowing skin. Dehydrated skin becomes dry, tight, and uneven. Drinking enough water not just hydrates your body but also hydrates your skin. A well-hydrated skin performs properly in maintaining the texture and tone of the skin. Hydrated skin looks fresh, plump, and glowing. Other than drinking water, you should also add hydrating skincare products to your daily routine.
You can drink sole water or saltwater early in the morning to replenish your body with minerals. It is very easy to make this sole water using just two ingredients. Make a saturated solution of Himalayan pink salt with water. Every morning drink a teaspoon of this solution by mixing in a glass of water. Himalayan salt contains more than 80 minerals in traces. Drinking this saltwater will provide the minerals essential for your body and skin.
Oil on your skin may sound weird but it is not only the new skincare trend but has also been around for centuries. Oils have so many great properties that make them ideal for the skin. Facial oils can be a good addition to an autumn skincare regimen. Because of their lipophilic nature, they deeply penetrate into the skin and lock moisture and water. Oils can add an extra layer of moisture to your skin. Other than their hydrating properties, these oils also have healing properties and can remove spots, scars and slow down the aging process.
Lack of sleep directly shows up on the face. Collagen is the prime part of the skin and when we sleep our bodies produce growth hormones that stimulate the skin to make collagen. The flow of blood also increases in the skin that along with collagen heals the skin and prevents fine lines and sagging.
When you get up after eight to nine hours of good sleep, your body and face feel fresh and rejuvenated. Your skin feels more vibrant and clearer. The old skin cells get replaced with the new ones during sleep that makes the skin young and glowing.
Here are some more tips to help you take care of your skin properly.
- Clean your make-up brushes regularly.
- Clean the pillowcases twice a week to prevent the growth of bacteria.
- Exercise regularly as it increases the blood flow and keep you active.
- Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables.
- Use less makeup.
