Your New Fall Skincare Routine 2016
The air is getting cooler, and fall will officially be here in a week. If you are like us, you update your skincare routines every season. The weather can have a serious affect on your skin. If you are one of the lucky ones, you might have found a skincare routine that works year round. If that is the case, we are totally jealous! If not, check out some of our tips for your new fall skincare routine.
1) Try Microderm
The dry and harsh fall winter can cause skin to put up its defenses. It is common to experience a layer of dry, dead skin cells on your face. Many people don’t realize it’s there until they get rid of it. The layer can cause your skin to look aged, and in turn make you look older. Microdermabrasion is a great way to get rid of the dead skin that isn’t doing your complexion any favors. Luckily, you don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars for microderm treatments at the salon. The ReVit device allows you to do it in the comfort of your own home. Just a one-time payment of $99 and you can do it as often as your skin needs!
2) Switch Up Your Moisturizer
Many areas tend to become drier after summer ends. If that is the case where you live, you may want to opt for a moisturizer that is slightly heavier, and will keep your skin hydrated all day long. We Love the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. It offers serious skin-quenching without being greasy or oily. One application will keep your skin feeling smooth and soft all day long. Or if you want some extra anti-aging power, check out the new Silk’n Age-Defying Moisturizer!
3) Don’t Forget the SPF
It’s easy to ditch the sunscreen when the weather begins to cool off. Make sure you continue to wear sunscreen all through winter and fall. It will help protect your skin and keep it looking young as long as possible. If you are lazy like us, and don’t like to worry about putting on sunscreen everyday, we recommend getting a moisturizer with SPF. We love Olay Professional Pro-X Age Repair Lotion. With SPF 30, it will protect your skin all day long. The lotion also helps to fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is always a bonus!
4) Heal Your Hands
Fall is the perfect time to give your hands a little extra attention. We recommend keeping a hand cream in your purse at all times. Apply it whenever your hands feel rough or dry. Our long-time favorite is the Almond Hand & Nail Cream from The Body Shop. It gives ultra nourishment to hands and nails, leaving them soft, pretty, and perfect for all your new moody fall manicures.
5) Pamper Your Pout
Dried, cracked lips are anything but sexy. They also make it really hard to put on lipstick properly. Nothing is better than smooth, sexy lips for your favorite shade to go on. Keeping your lips moisturized at all times is a MUST! The Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm from Burt’s Bees is made with Kokum Butter. It is clinically proven to offer 4 hours of long-lasting moisturization. Trust us, your lips will appreciate the love.
6) Treat Your Feet
Springtime is often thought of as pedicure season. However, after months of sandal wearing your feet could use a little TLC during the fall season. The Silk’n Pedi will slough off dead skin and leave your feet feeling smooth and sexy, which compliments a pair of warm, fuzzy socks nicely! The device is available at Silkn.com for just $29.
These are some of the products that have worked best for us. Remember, it is all about personalization. Play with different products and treatments until you have perfected the skincare regime for you!
