The fall season is finally here and with it marks the beginning of a change in weather. From hot and dry to cold and wet. Along with these changes in temperature, our skin goes through a similar transition as well. During the fall season, the cooler air brings about a drop in humidity which can cause the skin to become dry and dehydrated especially with the help of heaters. It’s already second nature for us to change up our wardrobe as seasons change, but we must also remember to help our skin adjust to these changes and one way of doing that is by updating our skincare routine. 

Below is Spalina Skincare’s ultimate fall skin care guide to help keep your skin happy and hydrated this fall:

Opt for a thicker moisturizer 

Because the cooler season can cause moisture loss, it is advisable to opt for a thicker moisturizer to help our skin lock in that moisture. You can choose to apply your lightweight moisturizer during the day and then slather on a thicker one just before you go to bed. 

Spalina Skincare’s Manuka Infused Lipid Creme also includes an ingredient called Sphingolipids that contains fatty acids which strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier, helping your skin retain moisture for the long haul. The manuka honey also helps soothe dry, chapped skin making this the perfect moisturizer for fall and winter. 

 

Carry a lip balm with you at all times

Just like our skin, our lips also get dry and chapped. In order to avoid this, make sure you always have a lip balm handy. Choose a lip balm that contains ingredients that lock in moisture such as glycerin, shea butter, and petrolatum. Make sure to reapply regularly throughout the day to keep your lips protected. 

 

Use gentle exfoliating products

During the cooler season, our skin becomes more vulnerable therefore gentle exfoliating products are a must so that we don’t damage our skin’s protective barrier. Spalina Skincare’s CranGlow MilkZyme is a mild exfoliating mask that is rich in antioxidants and will leave you with a radiant and youthful glow. 

 

Add Vitamin C to your skincare routine

In order to protect your skin from the effects of the cold months, make sure you add vitamin C serum to your skincare routine. Vitamin C helps heal damaged skin cells as well as prevent premature aging. Spalina Skincare’s Complex Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that performs all that, plus it contains colloidal gold which is a collagen-boosting peptide that prevents wrinkles and fine lines while providing the skin with a natural glow. 

 

Apply SPF 

Fall also means that the earth is getting closer to the sun. It’s even more crucial not to forget to apply sunscreen at all times. Here’s a tip: use about 2 milligrams or 2 tablespoons of sunscreen per square cm of skin. That’s about equivalent to a nickel size when applying sunscreen on your face. And don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours. 

 

Use a humidifier

If you haven’t gotten one already, then now would be a good time to get a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers have a ton of benefits such as clearing your nasal passage, keeping flu at bay, and in terms of skincare, helping your skin retain moisture.  

 

See an esthetician

Book a relaxing and gentle deep cleaning with a licensed esthetician to help prepare your skin for the cooler months ahead. Consulting with an esthetician can also aid you in maintaining and protecting your skin’s protective barrier.
