When summer ends, parents and students alike trade in their warm weather cosmeceuticals for heavier moisturizers and clothing that covers their skin. We know that our skin care routine needs to change with the weather but many of us get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of back to school that we let our skincare fall completely by the wayside. Try these simple tips to head into cooler weather with healthy, beautiful skin.
Choose Multi-Purpose Cosmeceuticals
During the lazy days of summer, you may have time for a long skin care routine that includes a number of different cosmeceuticals. Once school starts, though, many people barely have time to wash their faces before they have to run out of the door in the morning. Ideally, you would switch up your skin care routine so that it moves quickly without sacrificing quality of care. Choose cosmeceuticals that can serve more than one purpose, such as a cleanser that is also a gentle exfoliator or a tinted moisturizer with sun protection. This will shorten your routine and make it easier for you to care for your skin on busy days.
Let Go of Your Tan
When you stop spending quite so much time outdoors, you will eventually lose the tan that you built up all summer. Even if you tanned safely, with the proper sun protection, there is a good chance that your skin tone is going to be uneven as your tan begins to fade away. A simple way to deal with this is by exfoliating not just your face but your whole body once or twice a week during the transition. Exfoliating will remove the dead cells on the surface of the skin, revealing fresh, even skin underneath. Remember that even though you won’t be tanning for the next few months, it is still important to wear sunscreen when you are spending time outside.
Watch What You Eat
The summer is a time for parties and cookouts, which means that a lot of people get away from their normal nutrition plan during those months. Good nutrition is an essential part of good skin care, so it is important to get back on track with what you are eating as the weather changes. A healthy skin diet consists of omega three fatty acids found in fish, dark, leafy green vegetables and fruits with a high concentration of antioxidants.
