Changes in the weather can also bring changes in the look and feel of your skin. To protect your complexion from cold temperatures (not to mention central heating and hot showers), you’ll need to swap out some of the beauty products that carried you through summer. These simple tips from our aesthetics team will help you tailor your skin care routine for the fall season.
Gravitate Towards Gentle Cleansers
Gel-based and foaming face washes are summer favorites to control oil production. However, these products are not necessarily the best picks when the temperatures drop. Because your skin produces less oil during the fall and winter, switching formulas can help with dryness.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Faced with cold weather and wind, your skin has to work harder to maintain hydration levels. This struggle may show up in the form of flakes and cracks, irritation, and inflammation. Give your complexion a helping hand with products designed to replenish and retain moisture.
Obagi offers some great picks in this category, including the Hydrate facial moisturizer and Hydrate Luxe moisture-rich cream. The Daily Hydro-Drops facial serum is another good option.
If your skin is feeling extra sensitive, you may want to reach for the TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream from SkinMedica. It hydrates while restoring balance to your compromised skin barrier. As an alternative, we recommend the Replenish Hydrating Cream to soothe sensitivity.
Show Your Lips Some Love
Get ahead of dry and chapped lips this year with some preventative products. SkinMedica’s HA⁵ Smooth and Plump Lip System deeply hydrates your lips and improves their condition. What’s more, it visibly smooths fine lines, increases lip rosiness, and plumps the appearance of lips.
