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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
