It’s not the easiest job in the world—trying to keep your skin healthily glowing through all four seasons, but it is possible. As autumn comes rolling by your window, here are a couple of skin care tips that will give your skin just what it needs as it adjusts to the slowly changing weather.
This one’s really quite basic, whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall, it’s important to keep your skin as clean as possible. This means washing your face to lessen the possibility of developing acne, or other blemishes that could leave your skin scarred. It’s never a good idea to over cleanse so if you’ve been overdoing cleansing, you might want to dial it down this autumn. But remember to be thorough like you did in the hotter months.
Never skip on makeup removal at the end of the day, even if you’ve come home tired from school or work. Wash off all your day makeup at night, as this attracts bacteria to set up base on your skin. Make up could ultimately clog your pores and lead to breakouts. If you can’t bring yourself to follow the whole facial routine, grab a makeup removing wipe and let it do the job for you.
Radiation is an invisible damaging force on your skin, but the effects are slow (but almost certain) to build up. While you might spend your days bronzing yourself in the sun left and right, always come prepared with a good, reliable sunscreen to fend off the worst of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Overexposure to the sun is a significant factor for lines and wrinkles, and oh—skin cancer.
Vegetables and fruits are valued in health for a reason. Keep your skin glowing with a daily supply of vitamins and minerals, as well as omega-3 fats that you can get from fish, avocados, and almonds. Also, because dehydration can make your skin look dull, drink plenty of water to keep it supple.
While it’s important to drink lots of water, it’s equally vital to keep the outside of your skin hydrated. You might stick to commercial moisturizers, or you can go for healthier, more natural alternatives like Argan oil. Argan oil, also called the liquid gold of Morocco, is a natural extract chock full of nutrients that provides your skin all the necessary tools to stay healthy, even in the colder winds of autumn. The oil keeps your skin healthy and protected from the elements of the fall season.
Just these little steps can definitely give you a youthful, vibrant and healthy skin!
