Fall officially arrived on September 22 and will end on December 21. When she arrived, she didn’t make a lot of noise this year. As a matter of fact, Fall came quietly. The falling of the leaves and the greenery of the trees were unusually subdued. If you weren’t paying attention to these climate changes, then you might have believed that Summer didn’t want to leave us.
Fall is the season that you cannot miss, not even if you tried. Fall is the season that doesn’t stir us in the same way as Spring, Summer and Winter. That’s because we know that after Fall comes Winter. If you live in certain regions, you know that nobody is looking forward to Winter. However, Fall is that one season where we know we get a short reprieve from the heat or the cold. Go figure!
During the Fall, our skin needs our attention more than ever. Winter will bring us many external factors that will affect our skin. If we ignore our skin during this critical time, then we fail to protect ourselves from what is to come. It is during Fall, that we must create a good skincare routine to guard against the elements.
Winter is right around the corner lurking. She is a ruthless bitch unlike Fall. If we don’t want Winter to come and ruin us with her savagery, then we must take the necessary precautions. It is during Fall that we offset all of the damage Winter will wreak during those harsh Winter months.
You can do this easily by doing these three things to protect your skin:
Start moisturizing your face daily. To protect against dehydration that likely occurs during the Winter, you need to make sure that you’re moisturizing your face. If your skin is oily, use a water-based moisturizer. If you’re skin is dry use a oil-based moisturizer.
Follow up with a gentle cleanser. In the next couple of months, the cold will dry your skin as much as any products you use. So, don’t make it worse by using harsh chemicals. Make sure your toner is gentle on your skin.
Finally, minimize your pores with a light mask. The Summer months caused your pores to grow increasingly large likely due to heat, humidity, and dirt buildup.
This list is short and sweet. However, it is extremely effective. If you want to prepare your skin for Winter, then you need to Fall into the right skincare routine now! Your skin will thank you!
