Autumn is the time of the year when everyone looks forward to outdoor activities and trips. The slight dip in temperature provides much needed relief from the hot weather before you lock yourself up at home during the winter. However, the dry and chilly air can pose several challenges for your skin. Skin irritation, age spots, eczema and sun-damaged skin are the major concerns in the autumn season. As a result, with a change in weather, it is also necessary to make a suitable change in your skin care regime and save your skin from damage.
If you have heard it once, you have heard it a thousand times; attractiveness starts on the inside. Staying physically active and eating healthy is the best way to glow throughout the colder months (even if all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate). Bundle up and go for a run through your local park, or if you cannot face the biting cold, nip to the nearest gym to supercharge your body and skin. When it comes to eating throughout the day do not starve yourself with diets. Eat regular healthy meals that are rich in omega -3 fatty acids (fish, tofu) and vitamins A, C, D (cheese, eggs, broccoli, milk, almonds). And do not forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Get Rid of Dull Skin
Hot summer weather can exhaust your skin, so it is crucial to get rid of dead skin cells and reveal new, healthier-looking skin. The best way to do that is to exfoliate. In fact, exfoliation is vital in every season, as it prepares the skin to better absorb applied skincare products. You can enjoy two types of exfoliating products today; those with tiny hard participles that we know as facial scrubs, and also chemically active ones. Our chemical skin peel treatments in Birmingham usually contain active agents such as alpha hydroxyl acids or retinol, and they cause the upper layers of dead skin to gently peel away and reveal younger, more beautiful skin.
Use a Hydrating Facial Mask
Facial masks have been used since ancient times, especially in ancient Rome, Egypt and Greece because of their health benefits for the skin. There is a huge variety of facial mask ingredients found on the market today to suit everyone’s preferences. Buy your facial mask, get it done at a professional cosmetic salon or prepare it yourself from natural ingredients. Remember that by using a moisturizing facial mask, you cleanse your skin deep below the surface. This deep cleanse helps reduce dead skin cells and excess oils that can cause bacteria build-up. With fewer bacteria, your skin can remain clear of any unsightly blemishes or pimples.
Do Not Forget the Sun
While the weather is colder, it is easy to forget about the sun, but it can still damage your skin. If you are going to be spending your time enjoying outdoor activities then make sure that you protect your skin with at least sun cream. You could even try a foundation with added sun protection and cover two bases at once.
In summary, autumn is a time of transition, and is the best time to correct any summer damage and prepare your skin for winter. So use these tips, and help make your skin gorgeous.
