Seasonal Skincare: Fall

October 5, 2016

 

Ah, fall! The time when leaves start to change color, the air becomes a bit breezier, and your skin becomes drier. Yikes! Not a pretty sight for some people. As the weather changes, so does the its effects on our skin. With the fall season starting, it is important to make sure we change our skin care habits appropriately.

 

During the fall season, our skin loses moisture due to the dry, cooler air. Rashes such as eczema and rosacea can also appear and linger, usually brought on by the temperature and humidity in our environment. Besides rashes, humidity can also help create a breeding ground for bacterial and fungal infections, such as impetigo and athlete's foot.

 

So what are some ways you can help keep your skin healthy? Keep your skin moisturized and exfoliated. Exfoliation clears out dead skin cells to prevent pores from clogging. Applying moisturizer, especially after a bath or shower, helps to keep the skin hydrated. When doing outdoor activities, it is still recommended to put on some sunscreen. The temperatures may be cooler, but you are still exposing your skin to the sun. If lotions are not doing the trick to keeping your skin from drying out, try switching to a cream instead. Creams create a heavier barrier to preventing loss of moisture from your skin.
