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 Luminous Brightening and Protecting Lotion with SPF 30 – it delivers hydration 10 layers deep to help restore beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Plus, it fades the look of dark spots over time for a more even skin tone.
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 Luminous Advanced Tone Perfecting Micellar Water removes makeup and impurities in one step without drying out your skin, leaving it refreshed and illuminated. Applying Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask on a weekly basis can help replace moisture that’s been lost from the cold weather. It also works at the surface-cell level to give you a more even skin tone over time.
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. Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oilcontains nine enriched natural oils to help nourish your skin and keep dryness at bay.
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 Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, a fast-absorbing formula with peptides, pro-vitamin B5 and cucumber extract that quenches skin for long-lasting hydration.
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.
