Fall is a beautiful time to enjoy colorful foliage and crisp temperatures, but it also gives you time to prepare for the months ahead – including your skincare routine. While this time of year is beautiful, it also comes along with a drop in temperature and humidity which creates dry, stale air. Just like the seasons change and we change our wardrobes, our go-to skincare routine needs a refresh too. We’re here to help with your skincare routine transition to fall so grab your PSL and take some notes.
Use a Thicker Moisturizer
First things first – it’s time to ditch the oil-free moisturizers and make the switch to a thicker option to prepare your skin for cooler temperatures. This type of moisturizer will help protect your skin’s barrier from dry air conditions. You should look for a moisturizer that includes ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides that work together to boost your skin’s hydration. The MUTHA™ Cream is a great option that has that and will give your skin the perfect amount of hydration to take on fall weather.
While exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine, you might want to cut down your frequency for fall. It’s a great way to remove any dead skin cells and reveal brighter skin, but by doing this too frequently you can experience the effects of over-exfoliation. If this is happening to your skin, you’ll experience irritation, inflammation, and overall itchy skin. We recommend using exfoliation products like the MUTHA™ Nudist Body Scrub just once a week to avoid over-exfoliation effects. Pro tip – use your thick moisturizer after exfoliation to restore the moisture back to your skin. On your body, we love MUTHA™ Body Butter, natch.
Add a Daily Dose of Vitamin C
Vitamin C should be an essential part of any skincare routine no matter what season it is. However, especially in the fall and winter months, it’s important to have your skin get the dose of vitamin C it needs. During summer your skin probably gets more sun than in the fall. Any summer skin damage, such as uneven skin tone, can start to be repaired with a quality vitamin C serum. We recommend the MUTHA™ No.1 Serum packed with stabilized vitamin C, hyaluronic acid (for an extra boost of moisture), rice peptide complex, and many other powerful ingredients.
Get a Humidifier
As an added extra consideration for your fall skincare routine – invest in a humidifier. Low humidity levels that arrive in fall can compromise your skin’s barrier. You can combat this by using a humidifier in your house and workspace. Humidifiers help to increase the moisture in the air which in return helps keep your skin hydrated as well. It’s an extra step of protection you can take to combat the harsh effects of fall weather on your skin.
