Adjust your product for the change of seasons.
One of the most important things to remember as you reconsider your beauty regimen for autumn is that the change in weather demands different treatments and ingredients. Switch out your products to be better in line with what fall weather demands and help your confused skin transition. One of the key components (and a fall beauty staple) is moisturiser. Seek products that don't strip your skin of its natural oils but instead lock in moisture to keep skin hydrated throughout the day.
Detox and cleanse.
Refresh your skin from summer with a detox that will reset everything for the new season. Summer may have done some damage to your skin via too much sun exposure or pore-clogging sunscreens. Starting with a gentle detox, and following up throughout the season, can help erase this damage.
Because your skin is undergoing so much with the change of weather and harsher temperatures, it's important to be gentle during your cleansing processes. Opt for gentle, mild cleansers and avoid overusing exfoliating scrubs that can aggravate your skin and increase dryness.
The number one thing to remember for autumn is hydration. Drink plenty of water but also ensure your skin stays moisturised inside and out by using moisturisers and creams regularly. Replenish your fluids throughout the day. Carry them with you to combat dryness brought on by the cold outdoors and indoor heating.
