And just like clockwork, the heat and flickering fun of summer winds down, and the leaves are starting to turn the golds, reds, and oranges of the autumn rainbow that is upon us. Yet, although it may be hard to put away your fab summer wardrobe, look at the joys of sweater weather, boots, and fluffy scarfs. I don't know about any of you, but I always look forward to the sweetness that fall brings. At least for me, there is nothing more heavenly than wearing an oversized sweater, sipping on a pumpkin latte, and thinking about how to change up my skincare routine now that it is fall. What #skincarelovers are with me? Just like everything else that changes with the season, so does our skin, and we need to be ready to take care of it. With cooler temperatures setting in, we adjust our strategies to keep our skin in check. So, today Ladies, you will be prepared for when your skin is thirsty for more hydration due to the dry air; rest assured that putting together a fall skincare routine doesn't have to be a daunting task as long as you have some guidelines to help along the way.
Here are Some tips to Fall into Your Seasonal Skincare Change with Customized Beauty Products
Only you know what is best for your skin. So why would you settle for something that is premade sitting on a shelf-waiting for you to buy?
That is why customized skincare products and customized beauty products are a must, and the only way to have a marvelous skin transformation from summer to fall. In summer, you need light moisture, in colder months, more hydration. However, in between all that, there are other facts like acne, dry skin, and eczema etc., to consider when forming your personalized skincare products.
My AlpStory gives you the tools to personalize your skincare by letting you pick from over 60+ organic and natural ingredients for your skin type and your skin's one-of-a-kind needs. You can develop your formula in less than 5 minutes. Just answer a few brief questions and then our Alpine Beauty Expert will assist you in tweaking your formulation by offering suggestions for all organic ingredients based on the answers. Don’t worry, friends; everything is 100% all-natural, no toxic ingredients or animal testing. Your formula will be gentle, pure, and fresh.
Moisturize Multiple Times a Day
Our skin takes a massive hit during the fall. The cold weather can dry out your skin and make it itchy. It would help if you found adequate, thick, hydrating moisture to take care of all these fall skin woes before they spiral out of control. The key to discovering the best moisturizer for your skin can be challenging; again, this is why I can't stress enough that choosing to customize skincare products or customize beauty products is your best option when it comes to your skin health. It takes the guesswork out of seeing what will work and what will not work. Not to mention, it will save you time, money, and the chance to avoid having extra products you don't need. Look at making a custom facial cream or custom body oil to help your skin stay hydrated and supple during this fall season.
Don't Be Afraid to Embrace a Facial Oil
It seems that whatever rumors exist out there about facial oil being too oily and will create breakouts for your skin is not valid. Actually, it's quite the opposite; the right facial oil can keep your skin extra hydrated in the dry and chilly fall air. I've made my custom facial oil with jojoba as one of the main ingredients. Talk about hydration wow wee; my face also has a nice glow to it. If you want your fall face to be clear, bright, glowing, and, most of all, hydrated, then give it a try and choose personalized skincare products. In the fall, a custom facial oil will get your skin ready for the day and deliver the nutrients your skin needs to turn around from the effects of crisper weather.
Sunscreen is Not Just for Summer; it is Still Your Best Friend for Fall.
So I will be the first to admit it that once the days of summer have come to an end, I don't apply sunscreen as faithfully as I should; like most people, sunscreen becomes discarded once fall hits. Well, let me tell you #skincarelovers this is not a wise choice. Truth, we should be using and applying sunscreen daily, 365 days a year and ensure its part of our daily skincare routine. I suggest using a fragrance-free SPF 30 or higher and make sure to apply every few hours.
Let Sleep Be Your Happy Place
Ladies, who loves to sleep?
I know I do! Anyways, do you know that sleep is an essential part of a skincare regime, especially for fall? Most people spend way less time outside and more time getting those zzz’s. When we sleep, our skin repairs itself, and our skin cell increases, helping with skin repair.
One more thing, cortisol is a hormone that leads to bacteria and oil production.
Cut Down on Those Long, Steamy Showers
Yes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news; taking too long of hot, steamy showers can strip your skin of the natural moisture it needs and wash away vital oils, two things we don't want to mess within the cooler dry air. Try to spend no more than 10 minutes for shower time, and make sure the water is lukewarm.
Drink Your Water!!
We hear it all the time that drinking water is vital for our physical health and skin health. Probably the easiest method to support your skin health is to make sure you are hydrated, which may seem harder in the colder months. Can't get the suggested amount of 3 liters of water a day in? It can be complicated to drink cold water during colder temps; if this is the case, try drinking some herbal teas or bone broth.
Get in Your Vitamin C
When summer months end and the weather becomes more relaxed, I do not know about you, but I tend to start loading up on my Vitamin C to avoid getting sick. Does it work? I do not know, but that is what seems to be the norm and suggests it will keep us healthy. Then shouldn’t the same school of thought follow our skin health? Maybe we should include vitamins in our #skinhealth for fall. Vitamin C is full of antioxidants and will push your skin's defenses. Having healthy skin gives it a natural barrier that will keep it fabulous while maintaining the good stuff and kicking the bad stuff out. Including Vitamin C in your skincare regime improves the skin's defenses and provides antioxidant assistance. Vitamin C can reinvigorate your skin cells, giving you clear and glowing skin.
So, want another reason to create custom skincare products or custom beauty products?
Do you have 5 minutes to spare? Take your personalized skincare quiz on our website www.myalpstory.com and let our Alpine Beauty Expert do the rest from there. Here is your chance to get Vitamin C for your skin health this fall. Choose orange peel as the main ingredient for a custom facial cream or facial oil. The orange peel's ample antioxidants and Vitamin C avert skin from getting way too oily or dry. Moreover, it also can work as a toner that can remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, as it tightens your pores.
