As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisp, it's time to rethink your skincare routine. Transitioning from the sunny days of summer to the cooler days of fall requires a thoughtful approach to keep your skin glowing and healthy. So, we are here to guide you through the essential steps to make this transition smooth and effective.
Here are the five most important things you need to consider for your skin during this seasonal shift:
1. Hydration is Key: The drop in temperature often leads to drier air, which can leave your skin feeling parched. To combat this, focus on hydration. On one hand, there is the option to introduce richer moisturizers like Maya Chia's Revitalizer Body Oil and Waterless Wonder Balm to your routine. On the other hand, take a lighter approach and utilize a refreshing yet hydrating facial mist like Maya Chia’s Optimist Hydration Essence before applying a cream or oil to allow the skin to fully absorb the product and retain optimal results. These products are all formulated with nourishing ingredients that help lock in moisture and create a protective barrier against the elements!1
2. Address Sun Damage: While summer fun is unforgettable, sun exposure can leave behind unwanted effects like hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Incorporate a potent antioxidant like Maya Chia's The Super Couple Ultra Luxe Face Oil Serum into your regimen. Packed with astaxanthin (which is 8x stronger than Vitamin C) and chia seed oil, it helps to repair and rejuvenate your skin, minimizing the appearance of sun damage.2
3. Gentle Exfoliation: Transitioning to fall is the perfect time to focus on gentle exfoliation. Opt for products like Maya Chia's Refresh Mint Resurfacing Moisture Mask, which combines exfoliation with hydration. Its blend of acids helps to remove dead skin cells while leaving your skin refreshed and moisturized, revealing a radiant complexion. For users who like a more versatile product, the Refresh Mint Mask can be used as a quick 5-minute weekly mask, an overnight mask to get maximum results from the Salicylic acid in the formulation, and even as a spot treatment for those blemishes that can’t seem to go away! 3
4. Repair and Restore: Cooler weather can exacerbate existing skin concerns, such as dryness and sensitivity. Incorporate products that repair and restore your skin's barrier function. Maya Chia's The Super Blend Pressed Serum Moisture Concentrate is a powerhouse elixir that's perfect for nighttime use. It's enriched with nourishing ingredients like chia seed oil and coenzyme Q10 to soothe, repair, and protect your skin. Pro tip: Try this product on even tougher areas on the body such as knuckles, cuticles, and elbows for extra moisture!4
5. Sun Protection Continues: Just because summer is over doesn't mean you can ditch the sunscreen. UV rays are present year-round, and they can still contribute to premature aging and damage. Opt for a lightweight, broad-spectrum sunscreen like Maya Chia's Water | Color™ Tinted Super Antioxidant Hydration + Gradual Sunless Tanner. It not only protects your skin but also imparts a healthy glow!5
Remember, every individual's skin is unique, so it's essential to tailor your skincare routine to your specific needs. As you transition to your fall skincare regimen, focus on hydration, repair, and protection. Maya Chia's range of products offers natural and effective solutions to address these needs, helping you maintain healthy and radiant skin throughout the changing seasons. With a little extra care and the right products, your skin can thrive during fall and beyond!
