- Put down that heavy-duty cleanser you’ve been using all summer. Your skin’s oil production typically experiences a decrease as the temperatures drop, so opt for something more mild like our Nutritive Cleanser or Blue Plasma. (Speaking of Blue Plasma, see what makes this “smart” peel such a smart choice for your skin here.)
- Avoid washing your face too frequently since this can strip your skin of natural oils, creating the potential for dryness and peeling. While this is especially important for skin that tends to be on the oilier side, it’s a good idea to keep this tip in mind no matter your skin type.
- Take a shorter shower, keep the water temperature down and stay away from scented bath products to avoid drying out the skin.
- Choose a heavier moisturizer and consider adding a hydrating serum to your routine. The dry, brisk air of the fall and winter months can leave your skin feeling dry and tight; swap out your light summer moisturizer for one that offers more hydration and is rich enough to help draw in moisture and slow moisture loss during those colder days. Our Face Finishing Moisturizer and Multi-Action Overnight Treatment are great options to try for day and night respectively. For an added hydration boost, consider applying a serum such as our Chia Serum before applying your moisturizer. (Pro Tip: Apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp to help lock in all that added moisture.)
Cold Plasma Body, and use a treatment like our new Thio:Plex Intensive 2-Step Brightening Treatment to promote the look of brighter, tighter skin. No doubt about it, making the transition from those balmy 90-degree days to those inevitable 40-degree days is no easy task. While we can’t do much to change the weather (...trust us, we would if we could), we hope that these tips at least help make that transition just a tiny bit easier for your skin.
