There are so many reasons to love autumn – cozy nights by the fire, trips to the apple orchard, pumpkin pie – but the cold air’s effect on your skin isn’t one of them! Learn how to protect your skin from seasonal changes by switching up your skincare routine.
Don’t Forget the SPF
UVA rays can penetrate clouds throughout the fall and winter, so your moisturizer or foundation should still contain at least SPF 15, which constantly offers sun protection. We like Olay Regenerist UV Defense Enhancing Lotion with SPF 15 – it helps prevent future signs of aging while visibly regenerating your skin’s surface to reveal younger-looking skin.
Repair Skin Damaged by the Elements
Colder air can make your skin drier than in the summer months. The skincare products you choose can help combat the problem. A cleanser like Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser removes makeup and impurities in one step without drying out your skin, leaving it refreshed and illuminated. Applying Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Tone Correcting Night Moisturizer at night can help fight signs of aging and reduce the look of age spots for a more even skin tone.
Use Face Oils for a Winter Boost
Facial oils are one of skincare’s wonders and are a superb product for fall and winter. They absorb quickly to hydrate and balance your skin’s moisture, and they’re surprisingly lightweight, too.
Don’t Neglect Your Eyes
The skin near your eyes can also suffer from seasonal changes. An eye cream that contains cucumber will help restore age-inducing dryness and soothe irritation. We recommend Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel, a fragrance-free formula that cools on contact and leaves the eye area moisturized and refreshed.
Protect Your Pout
The skin on your lips is much thinner than the rest of your body, so it needs constant protection. Lipsticks or balms with SPF are vital all year round. And if you’re prone to getting cold sores, lip products with SPF can prevent breakouts.
Keep Your Skin Glowing
Exfoliating once a week will get rid of the dead skin cells sitting on the surface that cause skin to look dull and tired. ProX by Olay Advanced Cleansing System renews skin texture for a refreshed, smooth feel. It’s also conveniently water-resistant for use in the shower!
Treat Your Hands Like Your Face
Slather on a rich hand cream overnight to treat weather-battered hands. In the same way night creams and oils boost the skin’s repair system, a good hand cream will do the same.
