Skin Care Transition: Tips for Season Changes
There's a common saying that goes something like this: Skin care routines are a bit like your wardrobe. A couple of times a year, you need to switch out the pieces that don't fit the season.
Our UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care aestheticians offer a few key tips to help with the seasonal transition of your skin care routine:
You may need to switch to a gentler, less-drying cleanser. Pay attention to your skin, and if you are feeling dry, give SkinMedica's Sensitive Skin Cleanser or Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion a try. SkinCeuticals Micro-Exfoliating Scrub 2-3 times per week is also a great choice to scrub away the dead skin build-up from the summer.
Now that you are spending less time in the sun, it's time to focus on exfoliation a little more. Start the season off with SkinMedica's Retinol Complex for your nighttime routine. We can help you choose what strength is best for your skin type.
Your skin needs more hydration in the fall than in the summer. As the air becomes drier, trying a water-attracting hyaluronic acid formula like SkinMedica's HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator can help keep skin hydrated.
Don't Forget SPF
The importance of sun protection remains! Make sure your daily routine includes a broad spectrum SPF, such as Revision's Intellishade, an anti-aging tinted moisturizer with SPF 45.
Protect Your Lips
Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter with Avene Cold Cream Lip Butter.
Make Over Your Makeup
If you're not already using a mineral makeup, now's the time! Jane Iredale mineral makeup boasts good-for-your-skin ingredients, such as plankton and algae extract, in addition to being free of preservatives, synthetics and artificial oils. Be sure to set the minerals for a long lasting, smooth finish with a hydrating facial spritz.
