Autumn is just around the corner! With the onset of the new season, the weather changes dramatically, and our skin cannot but feel that it has got into completely different conditions. Cold, wind, rain – she, like ourselves, has to live with this, so more care and attentive (as well as competent) care will not interfere with her.
Be vigilant! Despite the fact that the real cold starts only in November, problems can arise already in the first autumn months. They are mainly associated with the past summer: after high temperatures and active sun, the skin dries up and needs to be restored. She becomes especially sensitive after the active summer sun, begins to react to the slightest environmental influences, and even a slight gust of cold wind can cause irritation. It is important that under the influence of various factors, skin of any type can become sensitive.
To reduce your sensitivity, choose your cosmetics carefully in the fall. They must contain special ingredients that enhance the natural protective properties of the skin and preserve the protective hydrolipid film. For example, almond oil, which provides nourishment and protection, thanks to the content of unsaturated oleic acid, which is identical to skin lipids.
Hydration and nutrition
In the fall, moisture and nutrition should come first. Summer heat subsides, which means you can take a closer look at creams with dense textures. In addition, it is worth thinking about the coming winter in advance. I advise you to pay special attention to saturating the skin with vitamins, which are so lacking in the cold season. First of all, it should be active vitamins A, C, E.
Although solar activity in autumn is not the same as in summer, you can reduce the degree of protection from UV rays, but it should not be completely forgotten. For those whose skin is prone to pigmentation, we recommend using creams with SPF always, but in the fall the protection factor can be reduced to 10-15, while in the summer it should be 20-30.
You can also start deeper cleansing programs such as exfoliation and scrub, which should be avoided during the summer. The fact is that in summer, with high solar activity, such aggressive programs can provoke pigmentation and other consequences of exposure to direct sunlight.
You need to be more careful with cleansers. If the skin is not hypersensitive, then the full range of cleansers will do – from micellar water to gels. For owners of sensitive skin, I can advise you to take a closer look at mousses and foams – these delicate and light textures will help to avoid discomfort.
In addition, acne may worsen in the fall. Usually, an exacerbation of the inflammatory process occurs a month and a half after the end of the solar season. The beginning of autumn is the best time to prevent acne treatment.
