Prepping Your Skin For Fall Skincare Posted on 02 Oct 09:11

 Colder weather is on the horizon and is your fall skincare routine ready to go?

Fall brings a mixed bag of temperatures with the changing of the seasons. The shifting of the temperatures can wreak havoc on your skin. 

You want to be prepared to keep your skin healthy as cooler weather is on the horizon.

Fresh and Clean

Daily skincare should always begin with your face. Your face should be washed at least once a day.

If you are prone to breakouts and don't want to wash your face in the morning make sure to wash the day's buildup and makeup off your face nightly. 

Green Tea scrubs, oil free and hypoallergenic products are the best direction for those with sensitive skin. 

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

If you ask anyone who is older how they have kept their skin so nice, chances are they will most likely say that moisturizers are their best friends.  

Of course, heredity and the degree of skin exposure to sun comes into play, but most women will share the simple trick of diligent moisturizing. 

Daily moisturizing, morning and night, is essential to women at every age. And, don't forget your neck.

Many need to be reminded to apply lotion to the face as well as the neck area.

This daily practice will go a long way in reducing wrinkles and showing the effects of aging.

Don't forget to hydrate

We all know the term "watch what you eat," but just as important is to drink enough water on a daily basis. 

We tend to drink more during the summer months with the soaring temperatures and rising humidity.

Staying hydrated in the fall is a little harder to remember, but it is vital to maintain hydration to keep your skin looking its best.

Drinking water won't turn back the aging clock, but it will help to combat dryness in the skin and hold in the vital moisture that skin requires to stay looking fresh and dewy.

Keeping it simple

Maintaining a routine is simply the best advice anyone can give you to keep you looking your best.

Cleanse daily and moisturize twice daily as the base of the routine. Exfoliate once to twice a week to remove dead skin cells is a must to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

Masking once a week or twice a month will promote healthy skin from your twenties and beyond. 

The younger you start with a healthy skin routine, the more fruitful the benefits.
