Autumn Skincare Routine
With the change of seasons, our skin needs more care. On the one hand, it is the time of regeneration after summer, on the other hand, it is the perfect time to prepare our skin for winter. How to properly care for our skin during autumn? What ingredients to look for in cosmetics? Read the article!
Start with hydration
In autumn, the feeling of dryness often appears, which can be caused by environmental conditions, cold wind, improper care, or dry indoor air. Dry skin becomes rough and lacks radiance, and flakes, fine lines, and wrinkles are more visible. It is a problem that is worth taking care of not only because of unpleasant sensations such as itching or burning, but the skin is also more sensitive and can age faster.
To restore optimal hydration, look for a cream with an enveloping texture , that will protect your skin from external factors and give you relief. In the composition look for sodium hyaluronate, saccharide isomerate, squalane, and shea butter.
Also, remember to moisturize from the inside out. Try to drink about 1.5 - 2 liters of water a day and take care of a proper and balanced diet. Thanks to this, your skin has "fuel" to function properly.
Our skin is constantly exposed to various types of damage related not only to the natural aging processes but also to the influence of external factors, which become more noticeable in autumn. The process of epidermis renewal lasts about 28 days, so it is worth supporting it to strengthen the repair functions of the skin. The best time for regeneration is at night, so in your evening care look for ingredients such as vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and natural plant oils, which are rich in unsaturated fatty acids that nourish and help to rebuild the lipid layer of the epidermis.
Fall is the time to exfoliate
Regular use of scrubs is a proven way to smooth, fresh and radiant skin. Thanks to such treatments, our skin better absorbs active substances from cosmetics. While it is worth remembering about gentle exfoliation throughout the year, you should be especially careful in the summer due to the risk of discoloration caused by UV radiation. Autumn is the best time to perform exfoliating treatments. Peeling is a controlled exfoliation of the top layers of the epidermis, and its advantages include: smoothing fine wrinkles, improving skin tone, improving tension and elasticity, moisturizing, deep cleansing, and regulating the work of sebaceous glands. We can choose from mechanical, acid, or enzymatic peels. Choosing the right exfoliation method depends on our current needs and goals. However, remember not to overdo it and exfoliate no more than 1-2 times a week. If you experience irritation after the exfoliation stage, try our aloe-rich soothing and moisturizing serum, which will bring relief, help reduce irritation and redness and support the regeneration process.
Proper care is important not only in autumn but also throughout the year. Make sure that your care ritual is always adapted to the season and the current needs of your skin. If you keep this in mind, your skin will thank you with a healthy and radiant look!
