Now that fall is well under way, we hope you’ve transitioned into your fall beauty and skincare routines. Susan M. Stuart, M.D., board certified dermatologist and founder and medical director of La Jolla Dermatology and Medical Spa in San Diego, CA., came through with the following tips to transition from your old summer skincare routine into a skincare routine that is perfect for the fall season.
Tip 1) Throw out your old, unused makeup. Chances are the colors are wrong for the fall and at worse ineffective if outdated and contaminated with bacteria or other ingredients which could harm your skin.
Tip 2) Clean or replace makeup brushes. Your makeup isn't going to look great with the wrong applicators or if the bristles on that makeup brush are damaged.
Tip 3) Remember you still need sunscreen. Even though the air is chilly and skies overcast, the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun can still reach your skin.
Tip 4) Add color to your lipstick with deep reds and blush to keep your summer glow.
Tip 5) If you want to keep that summer tanned look this fall avoid the urge to visit tanning salons. Be safe and use self-tanners.
