Now that October has passed, we can all agree it’s officially cold weather season. Autumn and winter is a beautiful time of year. But unfortunately, it can cause problems for our skin because of the drastic change in weather. So let’s talk about the best ways to transition your skin care routine from warm to cool weather.
Don’t forget your SPF
Yes, summer is over. But that doesn’t mean SPF isn’t important anymore! Even with heavy cloud cover, an estimated 40% of the sun’s UV still reaches Earth’s surface (and your skin). No matter what the weather is like, get in the habit of applying broad spectrum SPF every morning.

Pack on those antioxidants
Summer is the harshest season for our skin, hair, and nails. Prolonged sun exposure, chlorine filled swimming pools, ocean water, and more. can all negatively affect our skin.
Antioxidants help our skin by protecting it from the environment. They reduce inflammation and help the overall health of our skin cells. So be sure to take advantage of antioxidants during fall to help your skin recover from summer.
Now that the weather is on the cooler side, many people may struggle with drier skin and a few dry patches. In the cooler months of Fall and Winter, we suggest switching over to a thicker moisturizer. If you already have a moisturizer you love, consider adding a drop or two of facial oil to get that extra hydration factor.
Be careful about hot showers
Hot showers feel great when it gets cold, but it’s not great for your skin. Hot water is known to dry out the skin and can worsen skin conditions such as Eczema. We’re not saying you have to take ice cold showers, but try to adjust it to more of a lukewarm temperature instead of hot. If your skin is pink or red after your shower, the water is too hot!
Don’t neglect the rest of your body
Your face is important, but so it the rest of your skin on your body! Beach trips and pool time can dry out our feet, nails, etc. Don’t forget to apply your favorite natural body lotion every day. As for nails, a facial oil can be very beneficial to your cuticles and nails when massaged into the area daily. If your hair needs a little TLC, a moisturizing hair mask can help repair damage from summer.
