4 Simple Ways To Transition Into Your Daily Fall Skincare Routine (for Oily Skin)
Fall is a beautiful time of year, when the crisp temperatures signal the start of apple picking season with the fam and glorious sunset-hued leaves make for instagram worthy snaps.
Of course, this transition affects all parts of your life from your daily eating habits and exercise regime to, of course, your skin.
If you suffer from oily skin then you may now find yourself dealing with a mix of both oily and dry skin or perhaps your skin seems oilier than ever.
No matter what the issue may be, all types of oily skin can benefit from a few simple skin care tweaks that will ultimately balance your skin and leave it fresh and dewy rather than oily and greasy!
1.) Switch up your heavy moisturizer for a light-weight oil
Now before you panic, as long as you’re using the correct type of oil, a facial oil will not make you break out more!
If your skin is a combo of oily and dry then you won’t benefit from a heavy moisturizer, because it will simply amp up oil levels in the areas of your skin you don’t want it. And if your skin is oily then heavy ingredients can cause you to break out more.
Jojoba oil is the only oil that most closely resembles the skin’s natural sebum and your skin will simply drink it up! Jojoba oil helps to balance serum levels without leaving any greasy feel.
2.) Invest in a good retinol product
Retinol will always top our “must have” skin care ingredient lists and we believe that every age can benefit from retinol.
Retinol helps to balance oil levels, reduce and prevent acne breakouts and even improve the signs of aging by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
3.) Don’t skip the SPF
Many people pack the sunscreen away at the first chill in the air, but even though it’s cold, the sun can still wreak havoc on your complexion.
If you shy away from sunscreens, because you feel like they make your skin oilier, look for a physical sunblock that contains zinc oxide rather than the chemical alternatives. Not only will your health thank you for using a natural product, your skin will stay balanced and clear so you don’t feel the need to hide behind your bangs and scarf!
4.) Keep up with the exfoliation
Nothing helps to balance oil levels and unclog the pores faster than a good exfoliation.
Exfoliation helps to remove dirt and debris lingering beneath the surface that may have manifested as breakouts. It also boosts blood circulation to promote the formation of collagen and refined skin tone and texture.
Our Salicylic Acid Cleanser is gentle enough to use on a daily basis and will help to keep your skin perfectly balanced all season long!
These are a few of our top tips for keeping your skin healthy and happy this fall. Also be sure to eat a balanced diet, drink lots of water and exercise, because good skin starts on the inside.
