Keeping your skin healthy and clean is important all year round. Men need to find the right regimen that can satisfy their needs. As the seasons change, you will need to switch up your routine. Fall is approaching, so it is necessary to learn what you must do to prepare your skin.
Use an Oil-Free Moisturizer
Moisturizers are always useful for washing your face, especially during the summer. They are great at hydrating your skin and reducing wrinkles. However, you may want to switch to a more effective moisturizer during the fall. Autumn brings lower temperatures and dry air. Your skin will lose more moisture, which will lead to dry skin. Your skin will appear flaky, and the wind may worsen conditions. One of the best ways that men can combat this is with an oil-free moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid. It will help lock in moisture without being excessive for those with an oily skin type.
Wash Twice a Day
Even as the season changes from the hot summer to a cool fall, you will still need to clean your face twice a day. Once in the morning to wash away the sweat and oil that builds up overnight. The second wash should occur in the evening. Despite the cooler weather, you will still produce sweat and grime, especially if you do a workout. The type of product that you will want to use is a cleanser. Gently rubbing cleansers onto the face will:
- Promote exfoliation
- Hydrate the skin
- Eliminate breakouts
A salicylic cleanser has anti-inflammatory properties that are effective in fighting acne. It will clear the skin without irritating it and smooth razor bumps.
Exfoliating is a necessary step for any skincare routine in the fall. The cooler weather results in less internal hydration and natural exfoliation. Dead skin and dirt buildup can become an issue during the season. Clogged pores may lead to blackheads and acne. Fortunately, skin becomes less sensitive to exfoliating due to less sun and heat exposure. By exfoliating, you can remove dead skin cells, dirt, and excess oils. Exfoliators will clean your pores and leave your skin feeling smooth. A glycolic scrub goes into the deep layers of the skin to reduce acne scars and blemishes.
Repair Sun Damage
The summer is when people tend to spend a lot of time outside. That means your skin will have been exposed to a lot of sunlight. While the sun may provide a nice tan, its rays can damage the skin. UV radiation can contribute to:
- Dark spots
- Red blotchy skin
- Dry flaky skin
During the fall, UV radiation can still be intense. It is important to repair the damage on the skin during the season. You will want to get a moisturizer that treats sun damage. Also, there are exfoliating cleansers that will reduce the signs of premature aging like wrinkles and sunspots. Aftershave toners can rejuvenate the skin to lessen fines lines and wrinkles.
Use a Skin & Shave System
It is important to maintain your skin while you shave. You will want to have a shaving system that will hydrate the skin while giving you that natural groom look. A shaving system may consist of a moisturizer and cleanser, as well as a shaving cream that promotes smooth skin. It will fight skin irritation that results from the fall weather. Having the right shaving essentials will fight wrinkles and treat hyperpigmentation. It is important that you keep your skin healthy this coming fall.
