5 Tips To Boost Your Skincare Routine
Oh, fall! Time for changing leaves, warmer clothes and cooler days. As we know, any change in weather calls for skincare adjustments, and as soon as the temperature drops, our skin lets us know all about it. Skin tightness, dryness and seasonal breakouts can really put a dampener on the changing season. No problem, here are some quick tips to help transition your skincare routine, to help repair summer skin and get it feeling fine right from when the first leaf falls.
1. Switch to a more moisturizing cleanser
As temperatures plummet, humidity levels do too, and our skin loses moisture to the dry air around us. Make the first move and outsmart moisture-loss by swapping your light cleanser for something a little more hydrating. A micellar cleansing water can help hydrate parched, sun-kissed skin, and support your skin's barrier to help protect you from the damaging effects of the cold weather to come. A rinse-off cleanser, like Simple® Moisturising Facial Wash, will leave skin clean without feeling dry or tight.
2. Pick a skincare booster
We may still be dreaming of those balmy summer days, but all that sun, chlorine and salt can mean dull, dry, dehydrated skin come fall. Time for some TLC. Always put your moisturizer onto skin right after cleansing? Try adding a booster. Think of it as an additional skincare step to help support your skin during changing seasons. Us? We reach straight for the Simple® Water Boost Hydrating Booster, which includes a plant extract (called *PENTAVITIN®) to help increase your skin's hydration levels—plus it comes in a travel-friendly tube and has a lovely silky texture. Winning!
5. Smarten up your travel skincare
Dashing off on a fall holiday somewhere fun? Take a moment to think about changing temperatures, colder climates, hard water, and how they're going to impact your skin when you travel. City getaway? Don't forget your SPF (yes, even though it's fall!). Traveling somewhere snowy? Dehydrated skin can increase when you're in colder climates, so pack more hydrating products. Limited luggage? Facial cleansing wipes are our go-to cleansing saviors, always.
So here you have it, our fall skincare tips to help repair dry post-summer skin, and get skin feeling calm, hydrated and ready for whatever winter has in store!
