Skincare Tips for Fall

The season of big sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and yoga pants is finally here! As the weather (slowly) begins to change in LA be sure to provide your skin with the moisture it needs. Covering and layering your skin in sweaters and scarves won’t save your skin from the crisp autumn air. Here are some crucial tips to keep your skin pretty this fall!

1. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! This tip is number one on our list for a reason. It is extremely important to give your skin enough moisture. Moisturize daily after a shower or bath– this will lock in the moisture your skin already absorbed from bathing. Also, it is a good idea to switch from a lotion to a heavier cream for optimal hydration.

2. Use Soap-Free Cleansers – Soap may smell good, but it strips your skin of essential oils. Switch to a soap-free cleanser during fall to avoid dryness and flakiness. During the colder months, creamy and hydrating cleansers are the way to go!

3. Remember to Wear Sunscreen Daily – Apply sunscreen everyday! A classic myth is that you don’t need to wear sunscreen when it’s fall and winter. False! Sunscreen is just as important during fall and winter as it is during spring and summer. We recommend you choose a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 for sun protection.

4. Don’t Forget About Your Hands – Hands often are forgotten when it comes to skincare routines. Choose a good hand cream and have it handy in your purse or car to avoid dry and cracked skin all season long.

5. Invest in an Oil-Based Scrub – After a long summer in the California sun, use an oil-based scrub to repair dry and flaky skin. Oil-based scrubs are perfect for exfoliating and replenishing the moisture in your skin without being too harsh.
