With the crispness in the air comes the desire for hot apple cider and oversized sweaters. However, amongst all of the great things that accompany this season come some not so great things including dry skin that can crack and cause discomfort— and worse— fine lines and wrinkles. In order to help your skin stay in the best condition possible this fall season, use the tips listed below. Read on to learn more. Use a Moisturizer With an SPF In order to help make sure that your skin doesn't crack and dry, you need to be wearing both a moisturizer in the morning and one at night. However, make sure that the moisturizer you are wearing during the day contains an SPF in it. Although you may think that you only need to wear an SPF to the beach or pool, you should actually be wearing a daily SPF every part of the year. When shopping for a moisturizer with an spf, look for one that contains ingredients like titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide will protect your skin from the sun without breaking you out with an excess amount of oil. Exfoliate Weekly Get rid of that dead skin that has started to accumulate around your nose in the cold air. Use an exfoliant like a face scrub around 2-3 times a week. The face scrub will work to rid your face of dead skin without stripping your face of its natural oils. Make sure that when you are buying an over-the-counter face scrub that you are using one that is designed specifically for your skin type. For instance, if you suffer from acne, look for a face scrub that is made specifically for people who suffer from acne— this will help to make sure that it doesn't dry you out too much or break you out. Focus on bobbing for apples and preparing for Thanksgiving this November without having to deal with dry cracked skin. By following the tips listed above, you can make sure that your skin stays moisturized all season long. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery today.
