How to transition your skincare routine for change of season

Thanks to Aveeno for providing this information on changing your Fall skin care routine.

The beginning of Fall not only means cooler weather, football games and leaves changing colors. The change of weather also affects our skin. Have you ever Wondered how to transition your skin care routine from summer to fall? Dermatologist Dr. David E. Bank reveals his top tips and product recommendations for fabulous fall skin.

  1. Continue to protect your skin by using sunscreen daily. Even though the days of laying out at the beach have come to an end, you still need daily sun protection. Go for a lightweight sunscreen that won’t clog your pores but will still provide ample protection. I like AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE™ Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – plus it hydrates skin!
  2.  Do a self-check and visit your dermatologist for a skin cancer screening if you find any suspicious looking spots. The earlier skin cancer is caught, the higher the success rate for curing it.
  3. Be sure to exfoliate. Countless hours outdoors throughout the summer may lead to a buildup of dry, dead skin cells. Using an exfoliator to slough off dead skin cells, will leave your skin radiant and smooth.
  4. Moisturize skin everyday! After exfoliating it’s important to use a moisturizer to lock in moisture and create a protective barrier. Choose a lightweight daily use formula that will help prevent and protect against dry skin, like AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
  5. The harsh elements of summer can increase skin sensitivity. Use a body wash formulated with calming ingredients like oat, to soothe skin and reduce any chances of irritation. I recommend

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash for everyday use – it’s soap-free, dye-free, hypoallergenic and great for all skin types.

  1. I like Aveeno body cream, especially after too much sun! the body wash looks nice. I’ll have to try that for dry winter skin.

  2. My skin id so dry that I use lotion several times a day

  3. I’m guilty of skipping the SPF when it’s officially fall. I think I’ll try that Aveeno since it can be my daily moisturizer too.

  4. These are great tips, I usually tend to stop using sunscreens thinking that summer is over, but definitely should continue that. I use AVEENO® Body Wash now, now I feel I do the right thing.

  5. I never actually thought to change my skincare routine with the season! Of course it makes sense, though! Thanks for sharing. I’ll have to change up a few things about my routine in preparation for winter!

  6. Thank you for all the great tips. It’s so important to remember that we have to take a good care of our skin – on a every day basis….

  7. Yes Jennifer I wish I knew what I know now when I was younger. I dont leave the house w/o some moisturizer with sunscreen.

  8. Great post! It’s so important to continue with sunscreen throughout fall and winter. People often equate less sun with no need for sunscreen but it’s SO important year-round,

    I love Aveeno. They have some of the best products.

    Wishing you a lovely day.
