It’s that time of year again, when sizzling beach days turn into chilly nights and you trade your bathing suit in for a scarf and sweater.
Transitioning from season to season isn’t just for your wardrobe–your product choices should be in rotation as well. There is no denying that your skincare regime can get a little more complex once the temperature drops.
Chapped lips and dull complexion be gone! Dr. Gross is here to share the simple steps to prep for the cold weather that’s around the corner–and keep that glow going regardless of the season!
That’s right. Those months of and basking in the sun and soaking up that chlorine comes with a price. The dull, dry skin synonymous with summer’s outdoor activities clogs pores, blocks moisture, and causes the skin to shed. Not to mention, cooler weather means less internal hydration, natural exfoliation, and water delivery to your skin. Now is the time to balance the pH of the skin, promote cell turnover, and deliver the anti-aging ingredients that you’ve been missing. Gentle, daily exfoliation removes the dead skin cells without stripping away your healthy oils and allows moisturizer to penetrate deeper into skin, no matter the season.

Amp Up The Hydration
As the weather turns to cooler temps, the oil production that was boosted during the summer season slows down steadily. Colder weather is your cue to add moisturizing products back to your routine. Swap your lightweight moisturizer for a richer, luxurious formula to restore the moisture that was lost. The refreshing transition will plump parched skin just in time for the holiday season. To keep dry skin at bay, skip the extra hot baths and showers, and apply your moisturizer to moist skin.

Seasonal changes trigger stress symptoms in the body and shifts in the skin. Make the most of your beauty sleep with an overnight treatment with skin-perfecting properties. While most take a break from potent ingredients during the warmer months, fall is the perfect time to add retinol back into your routine. The powerful antioxidant takes on the aftershock of the summer sun, reducing the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.
