Now that we’re getting ready to say goodbye to summer (for now!), it’s the time of year where many of us begin to notice dryness and sun damage that we may have obtained from the harsh summer weather. Don’t get us wrong, we love summer just as much as you do but our skin doesn’t love it quite as much. Before you get discouraged there are some ways we can begin repairing dryness and sun damage so we don’t have to carry those struggles with us throughout the fall.
Drink More Water
We realize you’ve probably heard this said time and time again, but are you drinking enough water yet? We didn’t think so. Drinking water is one of the most important things we can do for our skin and repairing dryness. When we consume plenty of water throughout the day we’re providing our skin with the chance to repair the dryness from the inside out. Experts continue to find evidence that shows what we consume through our diet has an incredibly strong impact on our skin’s appearance.
Change Your Moisturizer
If you’re using a moisturizer in your daily skin care routine but still notice that you have a lot of dryness and sun damage it’s time to change the moisturizer. Our skin changes and has different needs over time, which is why we need to adjust our skin care products accordingly. Now that you’re experiencing dryness and sun damage taking a look at a moisturizer that’s soothing and thicker is going to help you to really lock in the moisture your skin needs right now. Keep in mind that when our skin is well moisturized and hydrated it provides our skin with protection and the ability to heal itself much more strategically.
Add a Serum into Your Routine
Serums are incredible, if you don’t already have one in your routine now is the perfect time to start. Serum skin care products offer a concentrated way to soak in beneficial ingredients for your skin to assist with repairing dryness and sun damage.
