6 Tips to Transition Your Skin Care Routine into Fall & Winter

Created by Benzoix – Freepik.com

The first day of Fall has come and gone… have you changed your skin care routine yet? Like the seasons, your skin changes throughout the year and your routine should adjust with the changes. We put together a list of tips everyone needs to make the transition from Summer to Fall

Get your skin right this fall with these beauty tips!

Tip 1: Scrub away the summer.

After a summer full of sun and outdoor activities, skin can appear dull and rough. Use our Coconut Salt Scrub all over your body to not only reveal smooth skin, but also improve the absorption of other skin care products. For the face, we recommend a gentler product like our KWA Solution. The alpha and beta hydroxy acid in the product will gently exfoliate your skin while you sleep while adding an extra boost of much need hydration. Follow up both products with your favorite Key West Aloe Moisturizer!

 

Tip 2: Turn the water temperature  down.

As the weather cools, it can be tempting to end the day with a hot shower. Don’t. Fight the urge and turn the temperature down to a comfortable warm setting. Hot water showers can strip your skin of its natural oils leading to dry skin. Make sure to use a hydrating body wash in the shower to help replenish your skin’s natural moisture level and seal it all in with your favorite body lotion.

 

Tip 3: Get luscious locks.

Summer heat can put a toll on your hair leaving it dry and brittle. Refresh for fall with a pH-balancing, moisturizing shampoo and keratin enhanced strengthening conditioner. Our Aloe Vera enriched shampoos and conditioners will instantly hydrate the hair leaving it shiny and manageable. Similar to tip number 2, be aware of your water temperature. Start washing your hair with warm water to open the pores of the hair shaft and but instead of ending with a hot rinse, which can cause you hair to end up dry and brittle, end with a cold rinse to close up the pores and smooth the hair shaft.

 

Tip 4: Protection is key.

Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you can skimp on your SPF. It’s important to always protect your skin from damaging sun rays. There are two types of damaging rays – UVA and UVB. Unprotected exposure can lead to premature aging and sunburns. Even indoors, you are exposed to UV rays. Decrease sun damage by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15 and above. Our Sunsorb SPF 50+ is great for both protection and moisturization.

 

Tip 5: Hydrate Inside & Out

As it cools down, you sweat less and always seem less thirsty then the summer months. Don’t be fooled, during fall you need to keep up with your hydration, both inside and out. Start every morning with a tall glass of cold water (with a lemon if your fancy) instead of coffee or tea. This first sip of H2O will provide must need hydration and can even jumpstart your digestion and metabolism. Also, consider switching to a heavier moisturizer for both your face and body during the fall. The thicker lotion will moisturize the skin and protect you from the cooler temperatures.

 

Tip 6: Don’t Forget Your Lips

Fall is known for a lot of things. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, beautiful fall colors (not in Florida), cooler weather, and chapped lips. People don’t like to talk about it but when the season changes, many of us experience chapped lips! We have the perfect remedy. First, exfoliate your lips. You can buy a pre-made mix or you can make your own. We love these DIY recipes from Brit & Co. Then top it off with an SPF lip balm.

Every season we change what we eat and what we wear, it’s time to start updating our skin care routine too! Share your fall beauty tips below and maybe we can all learn something.
