Autumn Skin Care Tips

As the leaves start to fall and the air gets crisper, it’s time to give your skin a bit of extra care. With the change in seasons, your skin might need a little more attention to stay happy and hydrated.

Your skin works hard to protect you, but when the weather cools down, it can struggle to hold onto moisture, leaving you with dry, flaky, or itchy skin. And, while anyone can experience dryness, some are more prone to it, like older adults and those with sensitive skin.

To keep your skin feeling its best this autumn, it’s important to tweak your skincare routine. Opt for shorter, lukewarm showers to avoid stripping away your skin’s natural oils. After showering, lock in moisture by applying your moisturiser while your skin is still damp.

When it comes to choosing moisturisers, simplicity is key. Look for fragrance-free options to avoid irritating your skin.

Don’t forget about your hands! Wear gloves when you’re out and about, and make sure to moisturise regularly, especially after washing your hands. And speaking of washing, be mindful of how often you’re scrubbing up, as it can damage your skin’s protective barrier.

Consider adding a humidifier to your home to counteract the dry indoor air, but remember to clean it regularly to prevent bacteria build-up. And while there’s no magic solution for perfect skin, staying hydrated and incorporating healthy fats into your diet can help support your skin’s lipid barrier.

If dryness persists despite your efforts, don’t hesitate to seek advice from a dermatologist. With the right skincare routine and perhaps a prescription or two, your skin will be glowing all through autumn.
