Basically, for the colder seasons, your skin will need a little more moisture. With colder temperatures outside, the humidity also drops. In addition, there is the dry heating air indoors. All of these will dry out your skin - unless you help it retain moisture.
If you've been using a lightweight moisturizer before, swap it out for a richer moisturizer. Or add an extra moisturizing serum to your routine. Here are 4 more tips you probably wouldn't have thought of right away:
Feeling some fall themed ingredients
In fall, you just crave hot, sweet drinks and warm, spicy dishes. You can incorporate these fall cravings into your skincare routine by adding products with fall themed active ingredients. How about e.g. pumpkin? Pumpkin contains vitamins A, C, and E, as well as antioxidants that help fight sun damage and wrinkles. You can often find pumpkin in creams and masks. Cinnamon, Honey and Vanilla work against acne and inflammation, among other things, and are therefore also good choices for your fall routine. And by the way: These ingredients are ideal for making a DIY mask yourself (and at the same time you can make a delicious Pumpkin Spice Latté from them).
Fall season = mask season
When the skin lacks moisture, the simplest and most effective solution is sheet masks. Apply a sheet mask and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. While your skin receives a generous load of moisture and nutrients, you can treat yourself to a well deserved spa moment.
A few more splashes of moisture
Put a facial spray on your desk so you always have it on hand. That way you can freshen up your complexion at any time. A small humidifier is also useful in the colder seasons, because it means your skin will suffer less from the dry heating air.
A little extra care for the hands
Pay a little extra attention to your hands. Because they are probably already quite strained by constant hand washing and disinfecting. Now the cold will also bother them. So wear a rich hand cream after every hand wash and treat your hands to a thin layer of your sleeping mask or night cream at night.
