You aren’t going crazy if you’ve looked in the mirror this week and wondered if your skin is looking worse than normal. Turns out, Fall is the worst time for new wrinkles.
Don’t worry, transitioning your skin for fall is easy and will help minimize your chances of getting new wrinkles and suffering from dryness. Below are some easy tips to help you navigate fall skin!
Did you know that thousands of years ago, ancient Egyptians used oil directly on their skin? Cleopatra, who is considered one of the most beautiful women in history, swore by using oil as a skin treatment to stay hydrated and glowing. Centuries later, oil is still one of the best and most effective ingredients for delivering moisture to your skin and helping to fight wrinkles and dryness.
Flash forward to 2020 and the way we are using oil in our skincare routine has totally changed – we wash with it. Oil cleansers are proving themselves to be the most effective way to clean your face, hydrate your skin, and fight wrinkles all in one easy step. It also removes makeup with ease which will lead to less pulling on your skin and fewer wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. If you haven’t experienced the amazing power of oil cleansing, ditch your soap ASAP and you’ll feel a difference in your skin after the first use!
Use Thick Products
Fall is the worst season to be skipping out on moisture for your skin. While you may have some lighter creams you opt for in the summer, when the temperature drops you need a thick daily moisturizer that can be applied both morning and night. If you are still only. using thin creams or serums, your skin will begin to dry out almost instantly and make wrinkles look deeper and worse than they really are.
Thicker creams use better hydrating ingredients, but they won’t be so thick that they clog pores. Look for ingredients like Shea Butter and Argan Oil which penetrate to the deepest layers of your skin to hydrate and plump away wrinkles. Best of all, these ingredients are natural which means that you know your skin will be safe and free of damage vs. using dangerous and synthetic ingredients to hydrate.
Don’t Forget Your Eyes
After a summer of UV exposure and squinting at the sun, your eye area is going to need a lot of extra love when fall rolls around. Many people complain of deeper eye wrinkles and darker circles when the seasons change, but focusing on eye care can reverse these negative effects and help banish wrinkles for good.
Instead of suffering from old and tired looking eyes, make sure you stay diligent with your eye care routine. Applying a peptide-rich eye serum twice a day won’t just brighten dark circles and banish puffiness, but it will work to repair the wrinkles around your eyes so you can take years off the look of your face. As a bonus, it also hydrates your eye area which can get dry from colder weather so that your makeup applies better and you look beautiful each and every day!
