Fall Body Care

As with every season change, you’ll want to change up more than just what you’re wearing! Post-summer skin can be dulled, tired, damaged, or dry, which can lead to more signs of visible premature aging. This can only mean one thing: it’s time to update your body care regimen for fall with our latest favourites!

  

HYDRATE

 

Just as you would opt for a thicker facial moisturizer, you can also swap your body lotions for something with a creamier texture. The skin on our bodies loses just as much moisture as our face in the fall as the humidity drops and interior heating turns on. 

  

VALMONT BODY 24 HOUR - $245

 

ESTHEDERM EXTRA-FIRMING HYDRATING LOTION - $59

 

It is recommended to apply moisturizer within the first 3 minutes upon exiting the bath or shower, as well as before bed to help to moisturize overnight. It is also a good idea to look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which help to lock in moisture. Topping off your lotion or creams with a body oil––such as Dr. Hauschka’s Lemon Lemongrass or Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil––is also recommended as we approach the winter.

  

REJUVENATE

 

Exfoliating can be done throughout the year, but it is especially important to continue weekly as the weather gets cooler. Cold air outside and dry indoor heating can cause your skin cells to dehydrate and overturn faster, leading to skin that’s duller and not as smooth to the touch. By exfoliating these dead cells away, new cells can come in healthier.

 

The skin on our body usually better tolerates physical exfoliation. However, make sure to keep it to a week-to-week frequency, as physical over-exfoliating in the fall can create microscopic injuries to the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This can set your skin up for extra sensitivity, dryness, and rashes in the winter, which we definitely don’t want!

PROTECT

 

As you should know, proper suncare is a year-round must! You don’t need to apply sunscreen to body parts that are covered by your clothes, but everywhere else is crucial. For example, even if you aren’t planning to be outside, your hands will likely still be exposed to UV rays (when you are driving, for example). 

  

DAVINCIA SUNBRELLA BODY MINERAL SUNSCREEN CREAM - $85

 

DRUIDE SUNSCREEN SPF 30 - $29.99

 

Last but not least, if you experience skin issues that arise during the colder months (such as eczema), you can always book your virtual consultation with one of our medical aestheticians who can help you put together a personalized plan of action.

 

Until next time, take care of the skin you are in!
