Improve Your Fall Skincare Routine
Learn how to keep your skin hydrated and glowing during cooler months of the year
When we think of Fall activities, we imagine enjoying brisk walks through the park surrounded by the brightness of the changing leaves, apple picking with our families, carving pumpkins, and maybe even preparing for the holidays to come. Some of the best experiences to have in the cooler months require exposing our skin to harsher elements and less moisture.
If there’s one thing we can all be certain of, it’s that hydrated skin is healthy skin. Drinking enough water, taking lukewarm showers instead of hot ones, and moisturizing while your skin is still damp are all ways to increase skin hydration. Here are a couple other ways to make sure your daily face routine is Fall-ready.
Your Fall skincare routine should focus on moisture retention.
Retaining moisture is the number one priority during Fall and Winter months when dry air wicks away moisture. Incorporating thicker moisturizers and creams into your daily routine is key to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and healthy. Consistency in applying a great moisturizer in the morning and using one specifically formulated to lock in moisture and repair skin overnight is also a great idea. AVYA’s Night Moisturizer is formulated with Vitamin A to help repair dry damaged skin.
Improve your daily Fall and Winter cleansing routine
There are several ways to improve your daily cleansing routine as the seasons change. While many people like to cleanse and exfoliate afterwards, it's important to minimize the use of exfoliants like glycolic acid or manual exfoliants which can irritate skin and result in even more dryness and inflammation. During the colder months try switching to a more mild cleanser and exfoliate only once or twice per week. AVYA’s Hydroveda Daily Milk Cleanser is formulated with argan oil, sunflower and antioxidant-rich ancient ayurvedic botanicals that have been used for centuries to heal and nourish skin deeply. These botanicals have antibacterial properties and are known to calm inflamed skin and aid in moisture retention to leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. For best results, avoid washing your face with hot water and stick to lukewarm or cool instead.
