Transitioning to Your Fall Skincare Routine
Fall is here! Then, eventually winter. Which means: dry skin, less moisture, and possibly less sun exposure. With the transitioning of the weather, some products aren’t containing enough moisture for your skin. Dry skin and stale air equals chaos for your face. Here’s how you can keep your face from going dry in the winter:
Invest in a heavier moisturizer or facial oil
Ditch your water based moisturizer and go for a thicker cream! If you’ve got really dry skin that gets even drier in the winter, I recommend you go for a facial oil instead. Sometimes, I will hear facial oil getting a bad rep because how heavy and greasy they are, but this is not the case! Facial oils will seal in moisture to keep your skin hydrated all throughout the day. You could even layer it on at night and wash it off in the mornings for soft, supple skin.

Layer on your products
Want to seal in your moisture? Layer on products to ensure hydrated skin. After your normal moisturizer, you can layer on some facial oil to ensure that your skin won’t dry out through the day or night time.
Use a body butter
If you use a body lotion throughout the summer, swap it out for a body butter. Like facial oils, body butters are so much thicker and will give your skin the intense moisture that you need. Sometimes, I even go as far as using a body oil! It makes my skin feel like a baby’s skin, honestly.
If you don’t use lotion in the summer, it’s time to start using them in the winter!

Use a humidifier!
During the winter, everyone is turning on their heater. The heater can be a big factor for causing your skin to become dry and dull. Turn on the humidifier the same time you turn on your heater to prevent the air from becoming dry. It also saves your nostrils from drying out too!
I LOVE the fall to winter weather, but don’t sacrifice your skin for it! Take care of it properly to keep it hydrated all year round.
