As the cool fronts move in and the humidity moves out, a fine veil of dry air will settle, effectively signaling the start of your annual battle against dry skin. But dry weather doesn’t have to mean dry skin, so here at Hello Smooth, we’re here to help you keep your cool and give you easy ideas for keeping beautifully hydrated, no matter the seasonal weather!
After bathing, showering, or simply washing your face (during which you should aim to use lukewarm water, not hot!), you’ll want to be sure to apply moisturizer right after you’ve dried your skin off! This way, you’ll lock in the moisture and help your skin stay smooth and maintain its defenses against the increasingly dry weather. You should moisturize at least once a day every day, although we recommend applying your choice of lotion any time you scrub or wash your skin vigorously.
Particularly when you’re washing your hands a lot (or if you’re just always on the go), you might not end up covering your hands against the cold to the same degree as the rest of your body. As a result, sometimes your hands end up cracking and peeling faster than anywhere else, and nobody likes to be left with itchy, scaly hands! Thus, one of the best ways to combat this is to carry hand cream in your bag. This way, you can moisturize on the go or even dab a little lotion on other dry spots throughout the day, like on your neck or elbows!
Following the summer, your skin might be in need of slightly more intensive repair and treatment. In order to remove dead skin cells and optimize your skin’s ability to stay cool and stay smooth during the Fall season, a microdermabrasion or HydraFacial is ideal! Not only will it feel refreshing, but you’ll also notice reduced fine lines and discoloration all while tending to your skin’s immediate need for hydration and renewal!
If you’re ready to set your skin up for seasonal success, be sure to visit Hello Smooth! We’ll even give you a free consultation to help you stay cool, stay smooth, and stay you! Call us to set up your appointment today!
