Skin Care Tips to Help Keep Your Skin Healthy This Fall

The calendar tells us that fall days have arrived! Normally, that’s the time to switch out those summer clothes for sweaters, boots and scarves. You might not be in the sun as much as you would during summer months, but it’s still important to remember that colder weather, harsh winds, and drier air can take their toll on your skin.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your skin healthy and looking good.

Create a good skin care routine. Having an effective skin care routine is important if you want to maintain healthy skin. I highly suggest you make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist, if you don’t have a skin care routine or if you want to ensure your skin care routine is right for you.

Stay Hydrated. You will want to maintain your daily intake of water since it helps your skin cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.

Moisturize every single day. I can’t stress this enough; if you want to keep dry skin at bay, you must hydrate your skin on a daily basis. The best time to apply your lotion is right after you’ve dried off after your shower or bath. Seal in the moisture that’s already been absorbed into your skin.

Reassess your body cleanser. Use Gentle Soaps that Don’t Strip Oils From Your Skin. Just be sure that your current favorite isn’t going to dry out your skin when the dry cold weather comes in. You’ll want to find a shower gel that is soap-free as well as hydrating.

Protect Your Lips. I suggest you start moisturizing early to prevent cracked & chapped lips this winter. A non-petroleum based lip balm is best since it has been found that petroleum based products can have a drying effect on your lips.

Don’t Forget Your Hands. Moisturize your hands after every time you wash them. With the decrease in humidity during winter, it’s easy for hands to become dry and damaged. It’s also a good idea to put an effective sunscreen on your hands.

Don’t forget sunscreen. Just because you may not go to the beach as much doesn’t mean you can forget the sunscreen for the next 6 months. Sunscreen is a daily essential.

I’m lucky that I’m in Sarasota, Florida where fall and winter are not as harsh as you’d find in the northern states. Fall weather isn’t a reason to take a break from you skin care habits. Maintaining good skin care habits in the fall will help your skin stay health and looking good.
