With autumn in the air, wardrobe changes come to mind – time to trade in those sandals and sundresses for boots and more cozy attire. You should think of your skincare in the same way. Each season brings a new set of challenges to your skincare regimen. Cooler temperatures, lower humidity, and increased winds can all mark autumn – all of which point to drier skin. Let’s take a look at some of the common skincare changes recommended for fall.
Cleanse: In the summertime, skin may be oilier, making you want to cleanse more often. For fall, try to limit cleansing to twice a day. All Actifirm cleansers are formulated to enhance skin architecture with natural botanicals without stripping. If skin is extremely dry, consider a gentle, moisturizing, non-foaming cleanser such as Actifirm Serenity Cleanser.
Moisturize: For fall, it’s all about preserving and adding moisture to skin that is adjusting and adapting to the changing elements. Those of us with normal to oily skin may find that in summer, an SPF moisturizer along with a serum like Actifirm Renovation Serum are sufficient for hydration. In the fall, it may be necessary to add a true moisturizer to the mix. It’s important to consider your individual skin needs to develop a skincare regimen that’s perfect for you. Actifirm offers a balanced line of natural moisturizers that not only effectively hydrate and moisturize, but help fight the signs of aging with powerful antioxidants and other botanicals. For average skin, Actimoist Booster is a great go-to moisturizer for daily use. I like to call it a “smart” moisturizer for its ability to target areas that need moisture most. For nighttime moisture and hydration, try 40 Winks Rest-N-Firm. With powerful anti-aging properties, non pore-clogging moisture, and soothing lavender aromatherapy, it has long been an Actifirm favorite. Layering either of these moisturizers with Actifirm Renovation Serum will give your skin a perfect blend of nourishment, moisture, and hydration.
Exfoliate: Exfoliation is a great way to refresh dry, flaky skin and put a fresh face forward – just what parched fall skin needs. Actifirm Z-Peel is top in many estheticians’ arsenals for its natural ability to gently lift dry, dead skin cells and reveal new skin. The Actifirm Z-Peel secret? Our signature Japanese Mucor Miehei mushroom extract, which mimics skin’s natural exfoliation process without harming living tissue. It’s gentle yet effective, and for that reason is sometimes called a “lunchtime” or “no downtime” peel. Actifirm Z-Peel is available in a 10% or 15% formulation for home use, so you can choose the one that best fits your unique skincare needs.
With just a bit of fine-tuning, you can enjoy healthy, beautiful skin year-round. Gentle cleansing, a boost in moisture, and natural exfoliation are all key to your fall skincare routine.
