Five essential tips for taking care of your skin in the fall

Like every year, autumn gradually replaces summer. The days are getting shorter, and the cold is slowly setting in. We will have to swap summer shorts and dresses for sweaters and warm clothes.  Your wardrobe isn’t the only one to change when fall sets in. Your skincare routine should adapt to the change in cycle. The off-season prepares your body for winter, and it’s an important transition period. With the decrease in the sunshine, fatigue eventually sets in. It is a difficult time for the skin, which becomes sensitive. It loses its tone and elasticity by becoming dehydrated. Skin imperfections reappear: Wrinkles and fine lines, skin dryness, sagging skin, redness or even increased sebum production …

Tip # 1: Eat the right diet in the fall

Your skin is like your diet. Feed him an unbalanced diet, and the result will be assured. Autumn is the ideal season to start a little ” detox cure ” and eliminate from our body the bad fats accumulated during the summer.

The skin’s role is to eliminate toxins contained in the body. With the modern diet, it saturates, and this results in skin problems such as eczema or acne, dull skin and a decrease in the effectiveness of the immune system. Also, it is a good idea to start with a small detox diet mid-season to optimize your skincare.

Tip # 2: Fall is peel season

Light and the gentle peel is ideal in the fall. Indeed, the peel will allow the superficial layer of the skin (epidermis) to be exfoliated. In doing so, the peel will activate cell renewal and eliminate small skin imperfections (dilated pores, pigment spots, complexion irregularities, fine lines and wrinkles, etc.). The skin of the face will be visibly brighter, smoother and more toned. It treats almost all the aesthetic problems of the face, and it adapts to all skin types, even the darkest. In addition, the formulations are constantly evolving. New molecules and associations offer better and safer results.

Tip n ° 3: Hydration of the skin at the heart of the concerns

You know, you have to drink your 1.5 litres of water per day to be in the nails. Good hydration is the basis for tackling the colder months of the year. Now is also the time to go from lotion to cream. Consider protecting your lip. Use a lip balm without petroleum derivatives (mosh) for better results and preserved health. Regarding the cosmetics to use, we will talk about them a little later in this article; they are an interesting complement between two treatments at your professional.

Tip 4: Sunscreen to protect against UV rays in the fall

Summer is behind, and you are back to work ?! The Indian summer season is no excuse to throw away your SPF sunscreen Because the fall sun is not harmless on your skin. The long UVA is present all year and is responsible for the premature ageing skin. Sunscreen is essential, even in the fall. Cloudy days make you forget that UV is invisible to the human eye. A good broad-spectrum sunscreen will provide protection against pollution, UVA and UVB rays. It will leave you with a silky, matte finish, in addition to protecting you.

Tip 5: Adapt your facial skincare routine and choose the right products

Fall marks a turning point in your daily beauty routine. The light summer creams and lotions will no longer be enough to nourish your skin deeply. You have to get down to business and adopt new habits to preserve your youthfulness.

Fall is a wonderful time to indulge yourself. It is also a period when your skin is more receptive to the care you provide. So, take advantage of this season to give your skin the best facial care. She will be grateful to you. And then, having fun is still the best way out of the seasonal blues.

Abandon traditional cosmetics

First of all, to take care of oily skin it is necessary to decide to abandon the traditional cosmetics which is rich in mineral oils, silicones and acrylates, which initially seem to be able to immediately give a dry and silky touch to the skin but which in reality, they limit perspiration and in so doing risk worsening the situation.

Much better to switch to natural cosmetics, choosing specific products and carefully studying the reactions of our skin.

Cleanse oily skin

Although the operation may seem easy and trivial, special attention must be paid to the detergent used for cleaning. A product that is too aggressive, in fact, can act as a stimulus for a further increase in sebaceous production.

The use of excessively degreasing detergents leads, in fact, to the appearance of what is known as the “paradox effect”, a situation in which the sebaceous glands respond to the excessive stimulus suffered by the skin with the increase in sebum production. To avoid this it is much better to use delicate and easily rinsable products , such as light cleansing milks , delicate soaps, lotions formulated with extracts of witch hazel, burdock, lemon balm or aloe vera and preferring a slightly acid pH , around 4.5 and 5, 5, which helps to control the exaggerated secretion of sebum sustained by the sebaceous glands and therefore to limit the shiny effect and the presence of impurities.

Tone oily skin

After cleansing oily skin, you can resort to using a toner.

This must be alcohol-free since alcohol -based products can be irritating to this type of skin, which is already very sensitive.

Normalize the production of sebum

To best take care of our oily skin we must try to reduce this excessive sebaceous secretion. The products capable of normalizing sebum production are obtained by carefully combining some specific ingredients that interfere with its production, while absorbing the excess, and they are:

Absorbent and opacifying ingredients , such as white clay, rice powder or bentonite, which make the sebum less fluid and visibly reduce the shiny-oily effect.

Sebum-regulating or sebum-normalizing ingredients , such as tannins and flavonoids. Tannins have the ability to react with keratin, resulting in a narrowing of the sebaceous ducts and therefore leading to a decrease in sebum production.

Vegetable extracts very rich in tannins are, for example, those of burdock, birch, witch hazel, sage, etc .. The use of these medicinal plants rich in tannins for the care of oily skin, has a double advantage: they not only reduce the production of sebum but also have an activity against free radicals and a decongestant and anti-inflammatory effect, particularly useful in case of acne.
