Skincare should be a year-long routine, but as the temperature begins to cool you should be taking your moisturizing game into high gear. Proper skin protection this fall will help prevent you from premature aging, dry and itchy skin and can even contribute to avoiding skin cancer. To give your skin, a little TLC here’s just a few things you should add to your  fall skin care routine:

Exfoliate

No water what time of year it is, exfoliating is a must! The summer probably left you with dry and flaky skin, so it’s the perfect time to start with a clean slate and as the temperature begins to drop, the need to exfoliate increases. Exfoliate with an oil-based cleanser once or twice daily for soft and healthy skin.

Don’t Ditch the SPF

The summer heat might be decreasing, but the sun rays are still strong. SPF should always be part of your daily routine. Look for a facial moisturizer with a built-in SPF and make it part of your daily routine. It’s the best way to prevent yourself from skin cancer and premature aging.

Protect Your Hands and Lips

Don’t forget to lotion up too! Your lips and hands can begin to get shocked by wind and weather change so preventing the harsh winter chap should start now. Moisturize your hands morning and night and don’t forget to add chapstick too. Another way to ensure healthy skin year round? Keep your daily consumption of H20 where it should be.

Moisturize

Beyond your hands and your lips — don’t forget to moisturize too! Head to toe — an oil based thick moisturizer is best. If your skin tends to be on the dry side apply while your skin is still damp from the shower, this will allow your skin to soak in the moisture it needs fully.
