How to Change Up Your Routine for Fall
As the temperature declines and humidity in the air dwindles, lightweight formulas used during the summer swelter are no match for fall’s crisper, cooler air. It is easier to prevent dryness than correct it, which is why moisturizing natural skin care and products for dry skin are on the season’s menu. Each person’s solution depends on the degree of damage during the summer, skin type, and climate. Here's an ideal skincare routine for dry skin and surface dehydration to care for your skin this time of year:
Step 1: Set aside foaming and gel-based cleansers and select an oil-based natural skin cleanser that gets to the bottom of trapped congestion, layers of sunscreen, sweat, and oil, plus supports your skin’s moisturizing barrier. Be sure not to choose one with Mineral Oil, which may deceptively appear to moisturize but actually inhibits skin oxygenation and causes skin thinning over time.The Pevonia CleanRefresh Foaming Oil Cleanser contains lipid-rich Safflower Oil and Squalane from olives and converts to a sulfate-free lather to entrap and lift away impurities while preserving the skin’s protective hydrolipidic film. Skin feels noticeably softer and refreshed, without tightness or dryness.
Step 2: Tone with an alcohol-free moisturizing toner or facial mist that addresses the drop in humidity. If you also have signs of aging, redness, or irritation, Pevonia has multiple toners, also known as lotions, to perfect the cleanse and address your specific concerns. For mercurial skin that changes as the wind blows, the Hyaluronic Acid HydraMist can meet your skin where it is on any given day. A natural skin care 4-in-1 multi-tasker, it has an ample supply of actives suitable for deeply moisturizing and plumping your skin back up.
Step 3: Fortify skin against fall weather and remedy summer neglect with serums. All Pevonia serums make your skin’s moisture level a priority, with options that simultaneously address other skin concerns. Genuinely dry skin will appreciate nutrient-dense formulas with natural oils and lipids to seal in moisture. Our Vitaminic Concentrate with moisturizing Safflower Oil and Squalane combined with rejuvenating Vitamin A gets to work on refining sun damage, lines, and wrinkles! But don’t assume that just because skin feels “drier,” it needs heavy oils. If you have oily, combination, and breakout-prone skin, you will benefit by choosing solutions that moisturize without clogging pores, such as the Hyaluronic Acid Hydra-Serum.
Step 4: Moisturizing is crucial year-round but particularly important when the air becomes dry. But skip slugging, one of the latest viral skincare trends, which means slathering your face in Petroleum to prevent TEWL (transepidermal water loss). While dry skin types needn’t worry about its pore-clogging effects, Petroleum doesn’t hydrate or nourish the skin and is fraught with potential drawbacks. It may cause sensitivities, allergies, and bacterial or fungal infections. Also, some sources are not properly refined and contain PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) deemed possibly carcinogenic according to the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and International Agency for Research on Cancer. The best face moisturizers contain safe actives that promote smooth, healthy skin with natural lipids and oils.
Once you say goodbye to concentrated doses of sun exposure which break down vital skin components, now is the time to try a Retinol cream for unparalleled collagen-boosting, skin-smoothing support. If the sun left you with brown spots and hyperpigmentation, a potent skin care cream with specially-formulated luminating Vitamin C, Peptides, and Licorice will target discolored patches and even out your skin tone.
