The long, warm days of summer are coming to an end. As the temperatures drop people are accustomed to changing their routine. Air conditioners get turned off, windows are open, and warm weather clothes are donned. However, people rarely think about changing their skin care routine in the wake of changing the weather. Your skin’s needs change just as much as the temperatures between the seasons. The summer sun and heat can be very hard on your skin. Thankfully,Mambino can help you address the changing needs of your skin as it encounters the crisp, dry autumn air.
Fall not only brings cooler temperatures but also a drop in humidity. What does this mean for your skin? Because of the dry air, it is likely that your skin will also become excessively dry. Coupled with the warm, dry air from heating systems and radiators and you have a recipe for disaster. Dry skin is usually itchy skin and can even worsen conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The best way to combat dry skin is to keep it moisturized. An effective moisturizer should provide a protective outer barrier on the skin which allows it to retain hydration.
In the summer, people tend to use lightweight and oil-free moisturizers because of the humidity that’s in the air and because most people sweat more in summer due to the high temperatures. In fall, however, lightweight moisturizers won’t provide your skin the hydration or protection it needs. Dry air calls for a much heavier and thicker moisturizer. Another thing to keep in mind is the difference between moisture and hydration. While most people use these terms interchangeably, they are two different concepts. Hydration refers to your skin’s water content and moisture is a measure of how oily one’s skin is. These two elements often go hand-in-hand and it’s crucial to establish a balance between the two for optimal skin health. If your skin has been diagnosed as being “dry” this is referring to a lack of oil. However, if your skin lacks water it is dehydrated. These conditions can occur separately or simultaneously. When these occur together with the symptoms often include dullness, irritation and even flaking.
Knowing this, the key to your skin’s health in the autumn is to be sure that any products you use to address both the hydration and moisture content of your skin. Dealing with only one or the other leaves you with an incomplete skin care routine and unhealthy skin. A decrease in moisture can also emphasize fine lines and wrinkles. While this is a natural and unavoidable part of aging, we can slow this process by providing our skin with the correct balance of nutrients it needs to look its best.
