As the weather changes, so our skincare routines must change too. But not too much – one thing that Tata always stresses is that if you have a good, healthy age-defying skincare routine, it should take you through the seasons and years without too much variation needed. Sure, in the summertime we need to control oil a little better, and in the winter, the air dries out and so does our skin – but we believe that our skincare makes skin healthy enough that it’s resilient to the stress of environmental changes.
That said, if there’s ever a time to switch gears towards hydration, fall is the perfect time to do it. As the air becomes dry and cold, it saps our skin of hydration and challenges our natural moisture barrier’s ability to retain water and protect the skin from the wind.
To achieve a luminous, glowy look this fall, take a look at your skincare routine and make sure it isn’t unnecessarily drying out your skin, with products that contain soaps, detergents or alcohol. Many people think that cleansing is a super basic step that doesn’t contribute to aging or dehydration, but soaps and foaming agents strip the skin and deplete it of moisture. That squeaky clean feeling? That’s the first sign of dehydration. Invest in a high-quality cleanser that maintains your hydration barrier so your skin is prepared to stand up to dry weather – our Regenerating Cleanser is loved for the healthy glow it gives to skin, while our Refreshing Cleanser is amazing for sensitive skin.
The next step for total hydration is a hydrating toner. While some toners are all about wiping the skin clear of oil and buildup with alcohol or astringent ingredients, this breaks down that important moisture barrier as well. Try something different: a toner that brightens and balances while supplying the skin with essential, biocompatible moisture where it matters most. Our Hydrating Floral Essence is adored for its dose of Hyaluronic Acid, which preserves the skin’s plump, youthful look.
And finally, we come to a daily moisturizer. As soon as the weather turns chilly, Tata turns to our Repairative Moisturizer, a silky rich daily moisturizer that contains 28 active ingredients to hydrate and promote a youthful look. It contains natural humectants like raw honey and safflower oleosomes, and contains toning ingredients like Gotu Kola extract. It’s adored for its long-lasting, dewy, glowy finish. It’s our most popular moisturizer! Check it out here.
And lastly, how about keeping chapped lips at bay? Our Be True, a sheer lip treatment, fights fine lines and wrinkles while helping to increase natural volume in the lips while keeping them healthy and hydrated. Yep, the perfect benefit combo.
Be sure to drink lots of water as the weather changes, to keep your skin hydrated and resilient from within – and take advantage of seasonal foods like pumpkin and dark leafy greens like spinach and kale, both of which flourish in the early fall, for their skin-friendly vitamins and minerals.
Happy fall! xo
