Best Products for Fall Skincare
Fall brings cooler weather drops in temperatures and a drop in humidity, which makes for dry, stale air and even drier skin. Mix this with hot showers and dry conditions inside from heaters and it's a setup for skin disasters like eczema and dry, itchy skin. Damage to the skin barrier is much more likely this time of the year, and when the skin barrier is compromised, skin becomes sensitized, leading to cracks in the outer layer of the skin, loss of hydration, and eventually, inflammation. These signs, may mean its time for the great skin care swap.
When and What Should I Swap to Protect My Skin During the Fall Season?
When your skin starts feeling tight, dryer than normal, that summer glow starts to fade and is replaced with a dull, dehydrated look… its time to swap!
A good rule of thumb, if you feel like you need to reapply moisturizer during the day or if your makeup is starting to cake into those pesky fine lines or if you find your skin is itching a bit more… its time to swap!
