As the weather dips and all things pumpkin spice infiltrate our snacks, it’s time to think about more than just what boots to buy this year. Your skincare routine may need fine-tuning to adapt to the autumn ahead.
Cold air has less moisture, and toasty heaters dry out the air indoors. During fall and winter your skin may show signs of dryness. But I have oily, acne-prone skin, you may protest. I would love to have dry skin!
However, many people experience more breakouts when the weather turns crisp. That’s because when your skin’s natural moisture barrier is compromised, it isn’t able to fight bacteria and infection as well. Then your oil glands try to overcompensate by creating loads of sebum. And thus, zits can actually run rampant in the fall and winter seasons.
