Suitable Skin Care Routine

Most people are hesitant when changing their skincare routine. Whether their current one is working or not, they fear that changing their products will have a negative impact on their skin. The truth is implementing different skincare products and ingredients into your routine are beneficial. Just like a personal trainer advises their clients to rotate their workouts so your muscles don’t become complacent, estheticians advise their clients to change their skincare routine. This allows the skin to receive different benefits from new products. Your skin is consistently changing and your skincare should be adjusting to reflect your skins current needs.

Here are some 5 tips to always consider with any skin care routine:

TIP# 1:Boost Hydration

Toners are often an overlooked step in a skin-care regimen. If you aren’t already using one now’s the time to start. Toners that are alcohol-free are a perfect way to give your skin the water and hydration it so desperately needs in the fall, when the temperatures are cooler. Skin cells are like fish and need water to live. Wipe an alcohol-free toner over the skin after cleansing and immediately apply serum or moisturizer while it’s still damp to seal in the hydration and active ingredients.

TIP#2: Protect with SPF

We often think that when the temperatures are cooler outside, the sun isn’t as harmful, but this is false. While the UVB rays (the ones responsible for causing suntans or sunburns) are not as strong in autumn, the UVA rays (the ones that cause skin cancer and premature wrinkles) are just as strong as they are in July and August. Protection is a year-round job, so be sure to apply a sunscreen formulated for your skin type to the face, neck, and any exposed chest area to shield from direct sunlight.

TIP#3: Exfoliate

For silky, smooth skin, a well-formulated facial scrub or an exfoliating peel is a must. Exfoliating is also essential in reducing breakouts as it removes the dead skin cells that trap oil. Regular exfoliation will help to lift skin discoloration (such as sun spots and acne scars), remove dull, tired, dry skin and encourage fresher, plumper cells to form. This will give your skin a flawless finish.

TIP#4: Listen To Your Skin

Regardless of seasons, our skin, like our bodies, is constantly changing and adapting to whatever we throw its way, whether internal or external. It’s important to be attentive and listen to your skin for signs that it’s not getting what it needs. Tightness, dryness, increased breakouts and sensitivity are all signs that your current skincare routine isn’t working for you and a change is in order. Pay attention to what your skin is telling you. You always want to work with Mother Nature, never go against her. When skin problems start to occur, you must make certain that you are using products that specifically address your skin’s needs and, if necessary, schedule a consultation with a trusted skin-care professional.
