HOW TO TWEAK YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR Fall...
Just as you switch up your hair color every few months, it’s important to do the same for your beauty routine – especially as summer gives way to autumn/fall. Notice your skin breaking out and looking dull recently? The change in seasons is probably to blame – the changing climate can lead to dead skin cell buildup, which in turn results in trapped oil and bacteria beneath the surface, and increased breakouts – and on top of this, skin will require more hydration.
Switching temperatures constantly (OTT central heating, cold commutes, hot showers) disrupts the skin’s moisture balance, meaning skin can become a lot flakier and drier in the autumn/fall months. Introduce an oil into your routine will not only hydrate in the short-term but will also help your skin to improve moisture retention in the long haul. Look for oils rich in vitamin C to help prevent inflammation and brighten dull complexions.
