The summer season is over and cooler weather is upon us. Is your skin ready to transition to a new climate? There are certain steps you should take to transition your skincare routine and products to prepare for a new season, especially with colder weather approaching. Keep reading to learn how you can transition your skincare through the seasons with these expert tips from the team at SomaSou.
Prepare to Hydrate
Cooler weather can seriously dry out your skin, which is why we recommend using more hydrating products in the fall and winter. Applying a medical-grade hyaluronic acid serum followed by a rich hydrating cream or oil to your skin is an important step to ensure that you are capturing all moisture and allowing it to go deep into your skin’s layers.
Don’t Skip Your Eye Cream
The skin under our eyes is highly sensitive and thinner than the rest of the face, which makes it more vulnerable to dryness during the winter months. Don’t skip applying a deep moisturizing eye cream under your eyes, (stay near your upper cheekbone or orbital bone area), each day to ensure proper hydration.
During the summer months, it’s ok to use a more aggressive exfoliator to remove sun-damaged skin cells and impurities. However, in the winter months, you’ll want to take it easier on your skin. That’s why we suggest switching to a gentle exfoliator to clear away impurities.
Protect Your Lips
The winter months can wreak havoc on your skin, especially your lips. Avoid chapped and flaky lips by applying deeply hydrating moisture to them multiple times per day. Also, don’t skip the SPF. Your lips can still get sun damaged during the cold winter months, too.
Schedule a Hydrating Treatment
If the small transitions in your skincare routine are not enough, we recommend scheduling regular hydrating treatments with a professional. Here are a few treatments you may want to try:
- Glycolic and Enzyme Resurfacing Facial: This clinical facial boosts hydration and repairs damaged skin in just one hour. There is no downtime required and the facial uses gentle products that won’t dry out or harm the skin. Learn more about glycolic and enzyme resurfacing facials on our website here.
