Fall chills are finally here! While many are rejoicing for pumpkin spice, boots, and baking, others are dreading skin flare-ups caused by harsher weather and indoor heating.
If you belong to the latter group, never fear: ATOPALM is here! We want you to enjoy the best that fall has to offer without worrying about your skin. Your skin care regimen may need some tweaking, but we believe that you can have a happy season with calm, beautiful skin. Check out our fall skin care transition tips to help guide you.
First off, focus on fall skin care lifestyle tips. These are things you can do besides switching up your skin care routine. Following these ideas will set your skin up for success and help make your skin care choices that much more effective.
- Bathe in comfortably warm, not hot, water. When you wash yourself (or simply wash your face or hands) in hot water, the heat melts away the skin’s natural protective oils that your skin relies on to help keep everything balanced and moisturized. Once the natural barrier is stripped away, skin feels dry, flaky, and maybe even irritated. (If your skin has ever felt tight or itchy after washing, that’s why!)
- Avoid prolonged and direct exposure to indoor heating. You won’t be able to escape heaters in stores or even in your own home, but try not to blast your car’s heater in your face or use a space heater under your desk. Rely on heating your entire environment rather than your immediate area, and use clothing layers and blankets as much as possible.
- Keep drinking water! The heat of summer reminds us to stay hydrated, but most people drink less water when the weather cools. Don’t join this trend! Set reminders and goals for yourself to keep your body, and therefore skin, hydrated.
Following these fall skin care tips will go a long way toward keeping skin happy and healthy through the fall and winter months. Add in a few new Korean skin care products to round out your fall and winter skin care routine, and you’ll be set. Here’s a look at some of our favorite richer skin care products for cold months.
Real Barrier Extreme Cream utilizes MLE and hyaluronic acid to deeply replenish moisture and restore comfort while the anti-aging ingredient Idealift works to firm sagging skin.
On top of moisture and anti-aging benefits, Real Barrier Three-Calming Complex helps reduce signs of stress and irritation. It’s an excellent choice for those using mid-range moisturizers and need to up the ante during fall and winter.
Cicarelief Serum helps diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, post-acne scars and spots, or discoloration caused by too much sun over the summer. It does all this without irritating sensitive skin!
Cicarelief Serum is one of our favorite products for fall because it helps keep skin evenly toned and youthfully radiant throughout the dull months of fall and winter. It’s an exceptional recovery product but also makes a great preventative formula for those wishing to avoid pigmentation issues.
For ultra dry, sensitive skin, fall means it’s time to turn to daily full body moisturizer instead of moisturizing as needed over the summer. Moisturizing Body Lotion is a lightly textured body cream formulated with MLE technology.
This specialized formula is able to replenish lost moisture by mimicking the body’s natural lipids while simultaneously protecting against future hydration loss. The result is perfectly soft, supple, and hydrated skin all over.
