Do you ever wonder why your skin seems to go “out-of-whack” when those autumn leaves start to fall? Well, there’s a reason why! There are many reasons why your skin may feel significantly drier during the transitioning fall months. Learn why this happens and how you can avoid it with these simple tips.


Lower Temperatures Cause Dry Skin

One of the main reasons why your skin becomes dry in the fall is due to the colder, drier air. As fall approaches the atmosphere tends to have less moisture than warm summer air. This in return, dries your skin out throughout the day. For some people, this leads to dry, itchy, irritated skin. For those who have skin conditions, it can make any underlying symptoms even worse!

The Importance of Moisturizing

There are things that you can do to help combat these annoying symptoms of dry skin during the fall. The easiest thing you can do is create a skincare routine that includes a moisturizer of hydrator for your skin in the morning. 

  • Skin that is prone to acne or acne breakouts should use hydrators. Hydrators are oil
    free and only add water for hydration to the skin.
  • Moisturizers on the other hand add oil and water to the skin and more appropriate for
    normal to dry skin types.

For a more nourishing treatment for your skin, a soothing facial by a professional is optimal. They have the ability to cater to your skin’s problem areas and can really help to protect you from fall weather. Facials that are specifically designed for hydrating and that contain vitamin C are really great at giving your skin a boost.

The Damaging Effects of the Sun

This tip definitely applies to southern areas, where the fall temperatures seem to take a little longer to drop. Even though the temperatures may be a little cooler, don’t skip out on the sunscreen! Summer may be over, but sunlight can still be just as damaging to skin during fall and winter months. The sun’s UV rays are always present, so it is important to realize that your skin is susceptible to damage. Look for moisturizers that have UV protection built in.

Use these tips to help you combat dry skin this fall!
