Fresh skin for Fall
Fall is here! And we need to start thinking about how to keep our skin hydrated and lush. The dryer air threatens to chap our lips and our noses, and preventive moisture care is the only way to go.
There are many options out there when it comes to skin hydrating moisturizers, and it can be confusing knowing which is the best option. You should always use a moisturizer that is compatible with your skin type and skin age.
Depending on your skin type, go for a moisturizer that will complement your dry, oily, or combination skin. If you struggle with dry skin, you’ll want a cream that has a high content of lipids, an element that locks in the moisture to the skin. You can also switch between night and day when it comes to your moisturizer. Dermatologists suggest to use a heavier cream during the night, and a lighter weight lotion during the day. When it comes to the moisture spectrum, the heaviest duty is ointment, then cream, then lotion. Usually ointments aren’t recommended for your face (except chapped lips), so save it for dry hands and feet at night.
Acid doesn’t sound like it would be the first choice for skincare, however some acids are really good for your face. Oily or acne-prone skin can benefit from acids such as, hyaluronic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids which double up as anti-aging agents.
Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals, molecules that are harmful to your skin. Moisturizers with antioxidants like green tea, chamomile, pomegranate, or licorice root are great for making your skin look fresh and youthful.
Although summer is almost over, don’t forget to always use sun protection in your daily routine. Many moisturizers double up as SPF protection. Even if the weather is chilly or there is a cloud cover, ultra violet rays can still cause harmful effects on your skin. So be sure to protect your skin from those harmful rays.
If your skin is sensitive, reach for a moisturizer that is fragrance free and hypoallergenic. Dermatologists suggests to choose a product with 10 ingredients or less, especially for facial moisturizers. Fewer ingredients mean fewer harmful potential reactions with your skin.
As we leave the summer behind, you may want to consider upping the moisture level of your current lotion. As the heat isn’t so bad, your skin can hold higher rates of moisture in the dryer months. It also doesn’t hurt to add an anti-aging cream to your routine after summer. The inevitable sun damage from the summer months can be repaired in fall and winter, leaving you fresh faced and ready to go for next summer without continually damaging your skin.
