7 Fall skin care tips your esthetician wants you to know NOW

7 Fall skin care tips your esthetician wants you to know NOW

The seasonal transition from Summer to Fall is tough on your skin. Cool, dry air robs skin of its moisture, and before you know it you're dealing with dehydration, flaking, and discomfort. To make sure your skin makes it through the seasonal change seamlessly, we want to give it all the help it can get. We turned to estheticians on Bioelements Facebook Page, and they weren't short on advice! Here are their 7 Fall-friendly skin care tips:

  1. Up your moisturizer. Esthetician Patty Ashamalla points out that your skin care routine is like your wardrobe – she recommends that her clients change what they put on their skin just as they change what they wear as the weather cools down. You need to layer up with a richer moisturizer to help prevent moisture loss, and replenish it when it happens.
  2. Hydrate from the inside out.Hot coffees, teas, and alcoholic beverages become more popular during the colder months, but caffeine and alcohol are dehydrating. Nearly every esthetician recommended upping water consumption to ensure that the effects of dehydration don't start showing on your skin.
  3. Consider swapping your cleanser, too. The focus for Fall skin care tends to be increasing your skin's moisture levels, but esthetician Laura Biris suggests the dry skin culprit could be your cleanser! The same cleanser that removes excess dirt and oil from Summer skin could be too harsh for drier, more sensitive Fall skin. Biris recommends changing your cleanser. Look for a cream or olive oil-based formula that will comfortably cleanse skin, without leaving it feeling tight and stripped.
  4. Don't forget barrier repair.Your skin is covered in a protective layer called the hydrolipidic barrier – a mix of water and oil (lipids) produced in the skin's sebaceous glands. While maintaining a layer of oil on your skin might sound like a bad thing, it actually protects your skin, and keeps its moisture level in check. Incorporate a facial serum with repairing and strengthening ceramides into your daily routine to fix dryness caused by a loss of lipids.If you're concerned about adding time to your routine, Jacki Clark recommends adding the serum right into your moisturizer. It cuts a step without sacrificing the health of your skin!
  5. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Another popular esthetician recommendation is exfoliation. Dry, dehydrated skin becomes flaky, producing a layer of dead skin cells that can prevent the complete penetration of active ingredients in your skin care. Regular exfoliation is essential in order to remove these cells, and ensure your products can do their job. Switch to a chemical exfoliator like Quick Refiner, instead of a manual scrub, to avoid cold-weather irritation.
  6. Sunscreen isn't just for summer. Cooler weather might be forcing you indoors, but that doesn't mean you can skip the daily sunscreen. Two-thirds of sun exposure is incidental. It occurs during daily activities like your commute or running errands. Stay protected by applying a broad spectrum sunscreen every day as the last step in your skin care routine.
  7. Don't be a stranger to your spa.Book regular appointments with your skin care professional to ensure she's in the know when it comes to the changes that happen in your skin throughout the year, and can recommend exactly what it needs when cold-weather concerns arise. Call a Bioelements Spa near you to book a SkinReading and get on a treatment schedule, so your skin stays in check this Fall – no matter what!
