As the seasons transition, you may notice changes in your skin’s texture and appearance. Changes in the weather and humidity outdoors and the drying effects of our furnaces can take a toll on our skin. If you’re noticing that your usual routine isn’t giving you the same results, it might be time to reevaluate your skincare regimen. 

Booking a skincare consultation is a great first step towards perfecting your skincare. We’ve also got 5 tips to keep in mind for supporting your skin health in fall. 

  1. Be mindful of your shower temps – Super hot water can strip your natural oils and worsen dry skin. Opt for warm water instead, especially on your face. 
  2. Use a humidifier – Many of us are starting to turn on the heat in our homes. A humidifier can help to counter some of the drying effects of central heat. 
  3. Stay hydrated – Hydrated skin starts from the inside out. Incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables in addition to drinking water, and consider an omega-3 supplement to support moisture balance and a healthy skin barrier. Add electrolytes to your water for maximum hydration. 
  4. Reevaluate your skincare products – You may need to switch to a gentler cleanser or a thicker moisturizer to protect your skin from dryness during the fall and winter months. If you aren’t sure where to start, book a skincare consultation with Carrianne. 
  5. Protect your skin – On especially cold or windy days, wear scarves or hats to protect your skin from the elements. Remember to still use daily SPF even in the cooler months to protect against damage from UV rays.
