1. Protect with SPF
Even though you’re saying farewell to summer, don’t stow away your sun care products. Your skin is still vulnerable to UV damage during the fall, too! While the UVB rays responsible for suntans and sunburns are not as strong in autumn, the UVA rays that cause skin cancer and premature wrinkles are just as powerful. It’s vital to use protection on your face, neck and any exposed chest area to help shield from direct sunlight. Try Olay Luminous Brightening and Protecting Lotion SPF 30, a lightweight face lotion that delivers hydration 10 layers deep and helps regenerate your skin’s appearance.
2. Listen to Your Skin
Your skin is constantly reacting to the changing environment, so with the arrival of cooler temperatures you should watch for sensitivity, tightness, dryness or blemishes. A rich night cream can intensively hydrate your skin and replace moisture lost throughout the day due to exposure to central heating and harsh environmental elements. You can also try a hydrating oil like Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil if your skin feels particularly tight.
3. Use a Facemask
Dryness, redness and sensitivity can irritate your skin as the season changes, especially if it’s been exposed to sun, chlorine and salt during the summer. Give your skin some extra TLC with a cream facemask containing moisturizing oils to help hydrate it as the temperature drops. We like Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask.
4. Boost Moisture
Our skin cells need constant hydration to maintain a healthy glow, and moisturizing becomes even more necessary as your skin is exposed to the harsh effects of central heating and windy weather. Use Olay Luminous Advanced Tone Perfecting Micellar Water to effortlessly cleanse, hydrate and brighten the look of your skin tone. Then apply serum and moisturizer while your skin is still damp to seal in hydration and beneficial properties.
5. Add a Serum
Once you turn on the central heating, your Olay moisturizer may not be enough to combat very dry skin. Serums contain smaller molecules than moisturizers, so their moisture-boosting properties can penetrate deeper into the skin. Choose one with active vitamins and minerals to tackle aging, dullness and dryness, like Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum.
Revamp the Rest of Your Routine
While you’re switching up your skincare routine for the fall, make sure to tend to all of you! To gently purify and nourish hair, try Pantene Micellar Revitalize Shampoo and Conditioner. For long-lasting odor and sweat protection, we recommend Secret Invisible Spray Antiperspirant and Deodorant in Luxe Lavendar.
