It may seem like a stretch to change up your routine just because the season has changed, but why is it beneficial and does it really make a difference?

Have you noticed that within these months your skin gets drier and more irritated? As temperatures drop and the air gets drier, so does your skin. The moisture gets pulled from within your lipid barrier, but not quite enough to keep your skin hydrated. But who does this affect? Unfortunately everyone is susceptible to these conditions, yet those with eczema or older ones are more prone. Even if dry skin doesn’t irritate you, treating it can help prevent eczema, psoriasis, and other potential skin infections.

To keep your skin healthy and comfortable throughout fall and winter, it makes sense to change up your skincare routine now. Don’t you just love a hot shower after a long day in the cool weather. Though they feel nice, sadly they can strip your skin of oils. Shorter, cooler showers are safer to your skin, as well as using fragrance free soaps and or cleansers.

And as always moisturizing is of the utmost importance to your skin’s health. It’s good to be picky within what moisturizers you choose. Avoiding fragrances and preservatives such as parabens or methylisothiazolinone can further irritate your skin. Moisturizing your hands after long periods of consistently washing them is also very crucial. If not, they can become irritated, red and flaky. Regular hand washing can weaken the lipid barrier, increasing the susceptibility to pathogens entering the body.

And as winter approaches, it’s advisable to opt for a cleanser containing hyaluronic acid to aid in retaining skin moisture and offering anti-aging advantages. Additionally, when showering or cleansing your face, it’s recommended to steer clear of extremely hot water.

Example of good fall/winter skincare habits:

  • Moisturize Frequently.
  • Switch to Hydrating Cleansers.
  • Even Acne Prone Skin May Need TLC During the Winter.
  • Limit Hot Showers.
  • Avoid Harsh Scrubs and Scented Products.
  • Exfoliate for Smooth, Supple Skin.
  • You Still Need Sunscreen!

So is it beneficial to change up your skincare routine in these fall and winter months? Yes!
