Summer to Fall: How to Transition Your Skincare Routine
As summer turns to fall, the leaves aren’t the only things changing. Your skin does, too! It’s time to revitalize your skin from the damaging effects of summer’s heat, sun and humidity by switching up your skincare products and routine. We have four great summer-to-fall skincare tips to help you do just that.
Tip #1: Exfoliate
All that time spent outdoors this summer means a build up of sunscreen, sand and sweat on your skin. A gentle exfoliator will help remove dead surface skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion that will take you fresh-faced into fall.
Choose a micro-exfoliating scrub with serious smoothing power to refine and replenish skin, minimize fine lines, detoxify, and sweep away old skin cells that can dull a fading tan. L’Essentials Micro-Exfoliant combines micro-fine jojoba beads and an infusion of Bio-Suisse certified organic botanicals to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve hydration, clear clogged pores, and enhance luminosity.
Tip #2: Switch Up Your Moisturizer
Just like you swap out your summer wardrobe, you should switch up your skincare products for fall. Skin tends to get drier as we head into fall and winter, so it requires more hydration and protection than it did in the summer. Switching up lightweight summer skincare staples for heavier, more hydrating moisturizers to adapt to the changing seasons is an essential part of a healthy skincare routine. Add a serum to provide targeted benefits and transformative results.
Tip #3: Keep Using Sunscreen
Just because you’re not laying out at the beach doesn’t mean it’s time to skip the sunscreen. The FDA recommends using broad-spectrum sunscreens SPF 15 or higher on a regular basis to protect skin from damaging UV rays. Sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection defends against not only sunburn, but premature skin aging caused by UV exposure. Sun protection is something you should think about year round – rain or shine.
Tip #4: Get A Facial
The transition between seasons is the most important time of year to get a professional facial, even if it’s not part of your regular routine. Facials are one of the best ways to brighten skin and restore nutrients during the transitional season while satisfying the pampering experience. Facials that regenerate and help rebuild cellular architecture while providing a burst of moisture and hydration are ideal for the summer to fall transition.
