Autumn is one of our favorite seasons! Time for bright lights, festive music, and comfy and toasty clothing! But, there’s one thing we don’t like about this upcoming season… dry weather!! Ugh! We’ve done our research and compiled a list of things to be wary of when the chilly season hits, and what skincare ingredients you’ll need to start incorporating into your routine!
What Happens To Your Skin When Dry Weather Occurs
The cold temperatures and low humidity levels that come with this upcoming season draw away moisture from the skin! The harsh winds from the outdoors combined with the dry air from the heater can lead to dry, and possibly cracked and bleeding skin! Horrifying, right?! It’s also worth noting that friends with skin conditions like eczema may see a sudden flare-up with this weather change.
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
The best ingredient to avoid that cracked and blistering skin is to incorporate some shea butter into your routine! Our Star Velvet Sleeping Mask with Shea Butter is fantastic for hydrating your skin while you sleep, that way you wake up with happy and hydrated skin!
Combating Dull Skin
Autumn skin is when your skin becomes more dull and loses its beautiful glow! But worry not! To avoid getting that dull autumn skin, avoid taking overly hot showers (we know, it's hard!) as those hot showers can actually strip away the skin's moisture! (Gasp!) We recommend using products like our Jojoba Oil to restore your skin's moisture and its natural shine!
We know that with summer weather, we tend to exfoliate a bit more than usual just to really clean the skin of that sweat and gunk we’ve accumulated throughout our day. However, now that the weather is getting a bit chillier, you want to lay off on exfoliating just a little bit! Over-exfoliating can cause your skin to dry out, and combining the conditions of the incoming weather may dry out your skin even more!
To combat this, we here at FaceTory have a gentle foaming cleanser that deeply cleans your pores without removing the excess moisture! It’s infused with Chaga and Oats to soothe any dryness and retain moisture in the skin! Our Sky Drops can also be helpful for dry skin as sky drops contain hyaluronic acid to help combat dry skin and hydrate the skin to make it happy and moisturized!
Get Some Moisture in The Air!
A non-skincare required option to keep your skin protected from this upcoming dry weather is using a humidifier in your room/house! The humidifier puffs out… well, humid air, keeping the air nice and moist for your skin to enjoy!
Knowing how to keep your skin hydrated and healthy during this upcoming dry season is necessary to fight off any potential arising skin issues! We here at FaceTory hope you all stay bundled up and keep your skin hydrated and healthy~!
