The leaves are changing colors to rich golden yellows, oranges and reds, and colder weather is approaching. Stay beautiful this season by altering your skincare routine to fit the needs of your fall skin. Keeping your skin fall ready is as simple as exfoliating, cleansing, moisturizing and daily sunscreen application.
All that summer sun exposure means one thing to skin: damage. You may notice that you have uneven discoloration, dull skin tone and even dry skin. Resurfacing Solutions can be particularly useful for creating a fresh base for your fall skin. If you have any specific skin problems, our specialized Resurfacing Solution line can target those issues. Our proven TCA Orange and Glycolic/Retinol Resurfacing Solutions can remove sun-damaged and dull skin caused by sun exposure. Resurfacing Solutions can also improve the look of fine lines, acne and dehydrated skin. For an easy at home solution, try using our resurfacing masque twice a week.
Summer skin generally means more oil production due to the warmer weather. It’s time to put away the stronger cleanser you used all summer. With the advent of fall weather, dry, cold weather can make your skin appear dry and dull. One way to combat dry skin is to switch to a lighter cleanser. A great cleansing option is the Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser. This organic green tea and chamomile is great for sensitive skin due to the changing seasons. Also, our Vital C cleanser is a creamier cleanser for dry skin during the winter that also happens to make an excellent shaving cream for men.
Moisturize and Prevent Sun Damage
During the summer months, excess oil production may make moisturizer seem unnecessary. Fall is the best time to add a light moisturizer back into your routine. If you have oily skin, you may want to use your moisturizer before bedtime or pick a light daytime version. Dry skin will benefit from consistent moisturizing with our Daily Defense moisturizer and sunscreen combination. Don’t give up on your daily sunscreen with the fall season; preventing damage is important year round.
