Transitioning Your Skincare Routine for Fall/Winter 2020

The fall & winter months are known to be especially difficult for those of us who have dry skin. I personally have combination skin with my t-zone getting oily and the rest of my face being more on the dry end of the spectrum. Lately, my skin has become extremely dry all ready. 

Now, no matter what skin type you may have, it’s very important to keep your skin hydrated all year round. In the fall & winter months, this tends to be harder. The fall & winter months tend to dry out our skin for a few reasons:

  1. The humidity drops which means the air around us is dry
  2. We tend to stay in doors more where there tends to be made up of dead air during these months.
  3. We also tend to take more hot showers which can dry out our skin & make it harder for our skin to hold onto any moisture it may all ready have. 

Effects of Dry Skin

When our skin becomes too dry, it leads to our skin’s natural barrier to break down. Our skin’s natural barrier is there to do what you would think… to help protect our skin from environmental stressors like allergens, dirt and viruses. On top of that, it helps keep our skin’s hydration in. So when that barrier breaks down as you can see in the image, that’s when you can start seeing skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, acne and things like that.

Fall/Winter Skincare Routine

Because our skin struggles with dry skin, in the fall & winter months you really want to focus on:

  1. Keeping your skin’s natural barrier from breaking down. In doing so, you are going to help your skin be able to maintain any thing you do to keep your skin hydrated. No matter how much you do for hydration, if this is broken down, you will continue to struggle with dry skin.
  2. Keeping your skin hydrated so you not only help prevent skin problems now but also slow down the aging process. Dry skin is more likely to have uneven skin tone, create fine lines & wrinkles and other signs of aging.

In the video below, I’m going to go through each step in a typical skincare routine and let you know what you can do to update your skincare routine for fall & winter, focusing on these two things… Helping your skin’s natural barrier stay intact and hydrating your skin.
