Prepping Your Skin for Fall

Fall and your Complexion A slight tingling sensation, dryness, and flaking—most people have no problem determining when fall has arrived, because they can feel it on their skin. As the weather changes from warm and balmy to cool and crisp, skin irritation is often tangible, particularly if it’s already recovering from sun damage. For mature skin, this can mean spots, tightness, lines, and itching. If your fall complexion is slack and sallow, the first step to counter it is a collagen boost. You can do this by subtly altering your diet. Make fish a regular part of your meal plan, and eat up those beauty-boosting fatty acids. Don’t forget your antioxidants, which come in a variety of tasty forms including whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The next step is to revaluate your moisturizing strategy. The skin has different needs in winter when it’s cool and dry compared to the summer when it’s secreting sweat and oil. It’s important to find a moisturizer that will hydrate, nourish, and restore your elasticity. A skin care specialist will help you find a formula that provides optimal hydration for your skin. If your skin is dull and rough, using an at-home exfoliation treatment once or twice a week can smooth out your complexion. Exfoliants work by removing the dead skin cells that result in dull looking skin, uneven skin tone, and rough surface texture. Advanced formulations, like those from SkinCeuticals, can address a range of skin concerns, including visible signs of discoloration and premature aging. Remember to adopt a year-round sunscreen strategy, because skin-depleting UVA and UVB rays are present every day, regardless of the temperature. Daily sunscreen provides effective protection from photoaging. Opt for products that provide a high level of broad spectrum sun protection with chemical-free UV filters.
