10 basic principles of autumn skin care
Skin care is necessary every day. But each time of the year makes its own adjustments to this care. Here are some basic rules that will help protect the skin from the autumn weather.
1. Maintain proper moisture levels.
To comply with this requirement is very simple. For this you only need to regularly use your favorite moisturizer. In the summer, under the scorching rays of the sun, no one forgets about this rule, but in the fall, when the rain is constantly drizzling, the need for regular moistening is somehow overlooked. One of the most effective means to moisturize the skin are creams, which include hyaluronic acid. If the cream is not enough, then you can pick up a special serum in addition to it.
2. Protection from the sun does not lose relevance
Of course, the autumn sun is not as hot as the summer sun, but it is still necessary to defend against excessive ultraviolet radiation. This protection is especially important for those whose skin is sensitive, quickly becomes covered with freckles or blushes strongly in the sun.
3. Every day, vitamins and antioxidants are needed.
The harder the weather, the less light day and the less fresh vegetables and fruits, the greater the need for the body to obtain full-fledged vitamins. Therefore, you should try to make your diet in such a way that it contains all the necessary vitamins, and also help your skin a little with special enriched creams, serums and nourishing masks. Cold weather allows you to make a small relaxation in the diet in the direction of increasing its caloric content, and this should be immediately used, including in the food various vegetable oils - olive, sesame, almond, black seed oil. Avocados can be another great supplier of vitamins, high-quality vegetable oil and powerful antioxidants. By the way, eating it (in reasonable quantities) can be without fear of getting fat,since this magic fruit, despite its caloric content, has an amazing ability to normalize lipid metabolism.
4. Use moisturizing wipes
If usual means of moistening are obviously not enough for you, then you can always carry moisturizing wipes with you and, if necessary, wipe your face with them.
5. Protect the capillaries
A piercing autumn wind, as well as sudden changes in temperature, when we go into a warm room from a cold street, provoke such an unpleasant skin reaction as constantly dilated capillaries. The face burns, flakes, and its color is very far from perfect. To protect and strengthen the capillaries will help special anti-age cosmetics, which experts of any beauty salon will help you to choose.
6. Increase vitamin D intake.
Permanent redness of the skin, acne, painful cracks - all this indicates that you are experiencing a shortage of vitamin D. In the autumn, you can enrich your diet with appropriate products or supplements containing this vitamin.
7. Protect yourself from colds.
The cold is always unpleasant in itself. And even after you say goodbye to her, she will remind herself for a long time about her poor skin condition. Therefore, by all means try to avoid colds.To do this, you need to dress according to the weather, try to walk in the fresh air every day and get enough sleep. Of course, such advice is easy to give, but very difficult to follow. But, unfortunately, other algorithms simply do not exist.
8. Pay attention to fish oil and other omega-3 acids.
Many people can not tolerate fish oil. But the skin, nails and hair are always delighted with it. So try to take it sometimes, even if its taste does not apply to your favorite delicacies. The reward will be elastic skin and shiny hair.
9. Moisten the air in the bedroom
As soon as the heating season begins, the air in the rooms becomes deadly dry. A special humidifier will help to correct the situation. Today there is no lack of such devices. They are presented in all versions, ranging from compact budget devices, to luxury designer models that will serve as a real decoration of the interior.
10. Wash gently
In the autumn you need to be very careful about the selection of soap and other cleansers. In no case should they dry out the skin. For gentle cleansing, you can think of such a reliable tool as olive oil.It is very simple to clean the skin with it: first, wipe the face with a swab moistened with heated oil, and then wash off the remaining oil with water.
