How to prepare your skin for the changing seasons?

Autumn is just around the corner, and with it, the first signs of change in your beauty routine. As we move from the heat of summer to the cool of fall, you may have noticed that your skin reacts differently, and that's not just a coincidence. Rebound acne tends to appear in late summer and you may also feel your skin becoming drier and duller. In this article, we'll explore how to understand your skin's needs during these seasonal transitions and guide you in preparing your skin for fall.

Why does the skin react to the changing seasons?

The answer lies in the biology of the skin. Our epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, is constantly exposed to various environmental factors, including temperatures, humidity, UV rays and cold winds. When the seasons change, our skin must adapt to these new conditions.

Summer can be associated with oilier skin due to heat, humidity and sun exposure. Conversely, fall brings colder, drier air, which tends to lead to skin dehydration, tightness , and redness . Faced with these changes, the skin adjusts its sebum production, modifies its protective mechanism and regulates its loss of hydration.

How does each skin type react?

The first essential step in preparing your skin for a change of season is to understand how it responds to these climatic variations. Your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive) plays a crucial role in how it reacts. Additionally, external factors such as pollution, humidity, temperature and sun exposure influence the health of your skin.
It is important to note that each skin type reacts differently to seasonal changes. Here's how each skin type can be affected:

  • Oily skin : With the arrival of fall, oily skin experiences relief as the cooler air can reduce excess sebum production . However, you have to be careful because they can start to show signs of dehydration and remain prone to imperfections .
  • Dry skin : Dry skin is particularly vulnerable in the fall, as it tends to become even drier, irritated , and prone to flaking . They need increased hydration to maintain their water balance.
  • Combination skin : For combination skin, adjust your routine based on the area of ​​the face that needs the most attention. You may want to use a richer moisturizer on dry areas and a light cream on oily areas . It is essential to target the specific needs of each area.
  • Sensitive skin : Sensitive skin may react with redness and severe irritation in the fall. They require soothing and moisturizing care to alleviate these reactions.

Adopt your new fall routine

Now that you better understand your skin's specific needs, it's time to take concrete actions to prepare it for seasonal transitions. Here are some tips to help your skin cope with the chill of fall:

  • Gently exfoliate : continue your cleansing step with a gentle exfoliation, once or twice a week, to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal . At the end of summer, the exfoliation step helps prevent blemishes due to the rebound effect of acne.
  • Hydrate well : choose a moisturizer suited to your skin type to avoid dehydration. If you have dry or sensitive skin, we recommend using a richer cream to protect your skin against colder, drier weather. On the contrary, if you have oily skin, we recommend our ORGANIC Soothing Radiance Jelly which intensely hydrates without leaving a greasy finish on your skin. Don't forget to combine your moisturizer with our Quenching Eye Mask , to reduce signs of fatigue and revive your eyes.
  • Protect from the sun : We tend to think that once summer has passed, the sun no longer has any effect on our skin. However, it is necessary to continue to apply sunscreen because even in autumn, UV rays can damage the skin.
  • Use a serum : Antioxidant-rich serums can help protect your skin against environmental aggressors. Fall can be a time of transition where humidity decreases, antioxidants help retain water in the skin. We recommend our Radiance Booster Serum , formulated with our Bio-active Pink Banana, exclusive Kadalys ingredient, ginger root and marshmallow extract, powerful antioxidant ingredients.
  • Apply a mask : a hydrating mask once a week offers a boost of hydration and comfort to your skin. Our Soothing Mask is ideal, it relieves and revitalizes your skin.

By preparing your skin appropriately for seasonal transitions, you can avoid common skin concerns like rebound acne in late summer or dehydration as fall approaches. By following these practical tips and adapting your skincare routine to your skin's changing needs, you can maintain healthy, glowing skin all year round. Listening attentively to your skin is the key to giving it the care it needs, whether in summer, fall, or any other time of year.
