How to change your skin care for autumn

Summer is coming to an end, it is slowly getting colder outside – time to adjust our skin care to autumn. It’s time to start using richer skin care products again! Tikbow reveals the best beauty tips for the transitional period.

Why our skin needs special attention in the transitional season? On the one hand, it still needs to regenerate from the summer – it lacks moisture especially after the last beach vacation – on the other hand, it is now particularly stressed by colder temperatures. With the result that it dries out faster and looks anything but radiant. 8 skin care tips for the fall!

1. rich care

When temperatures drop, the sebaceous glands are the first to react. They produce the natural oil film that protects our skin from external influences. The colder it is outside, the less of the skin’s own lipids (fats) are produced. As a result, the skin’s natural protective barrier is weakened and the skin dries out. Skin care in the fall should therefore – especially night care – also contain lipid-replenishing substances such as urea, evening primrose öl or shea butter. With your day care, on the other hand, you can stick to pure moisturizing care. In addition, make sure you moisturize from the inside, i.e. drink enough, at least two liters of water per day.

2. masks and a serum for extra protection

In the transitional period, dermatologists recommend a highly concentrated serum for the extra portion of moisture, which is applied under the day cream. In addition, you can care for your skin twice a week with a moisturizing mask. Leave the texture on overnight, because our skin can absorb active ingredients best during the resting phase. And don’t worry, most masks absorb quickly and leave no trace on your pillow.

3. apply enzyme peelings

Often our skin is sallow in autumn. The reason for this is that the vacation sun gradually flakes off, leaving a gray film on the skin. To get rid of this, you should integrate enzyme peelings into your skin care in the fall. These remove dead skin more gently than conventional peels and make the complexion look clearer. Alternatively, chemical peels can also be used.

4. protect from the sun

Think about a sufficient UV protection! Although you don’t necessarily need SPF 50 in the cold season, you should still protect your skin from the sun with at least SPF 15 during long walks or outdoor sports.

5. do not forget the body

The skin on the shins and elbows often suffers from particularly dry, flaky and itchy skin. The reason for this is that there are fewer sebaceous glands in these areas. Care products with panthenol can help. Our tip: Simply mix a few drops of body oil into your usual body lotion.

6. apply cream to the hands.

The skin on the hands is particularly sensitive to temperature fluctuations. It also has only a few sebaceous glands, is often in contact with the dry, cold air and is constantly stressed. There is only one thing that helps here: applying lotion. Especially in the transitional period, it makes sense to use hand creams with UV protection in the morning. This cares for the skin and protects against pigmentation, so-called age spots, which are unfortunately first seen on the hands.

7. pack lipbalm

Because lips cannot be protected with warm clothes and their skin is very thin, they deserve special attention in cold temperatures. From now on, at the latest, you should always have a lip balm in your pocket. Nourishing ingredients such as beeswax or palm wax are ideal. They prevent your lips from becoming rough and chapped.

8. take a shower rather than a bath

Be careful not to take too hot or too long showers and save extended baths for the winter. This will flush the natural lipids from the skin, causing it to dry out more quickly, flake – and the vacation glow will also be gone more quickly. Moisturizing shower lotions or shower oils ensure that the skin remains supple.
