Season change is not the only thing happening as autumn approaches: our skin changes too. As the climate is slowly getting colder, windier and wetter, we change the way we dress because our body needs protection for these weather conditions. Our skin experiences the same, which is why we need a little extra to nourish and protect skin that is affected by Keratosis Pilaris (KP).
The air becomes drier and cooler during autumn. This type of weather makes our skin less able to retain moisture. The most common symptoms we experience during this season are that your skin becomes drier making it look and feel dull.
For people that are affected by dry skin conditions, flare-ups are more common during the cold seasons, which is why it is important to take extra care. The good news is that you can do something to keep your skin beautiful and glowing. The best way of doing this is to make minor adjustments to your beauty regime.
Protection for Keratosis Pilaris
We know that Keratosis Pilaris doesn’t cause serious health implications but it is also a known ailment because it’s difficult to treat. Like any dry skin condition, the key is to keep your skin moisturized to improve the appearance of your skin.
Autumn KP Skin Care Tips
*Boost your water intake during autumn. This will help your skin to keep it hydrated.
*Change to a richer moisturizer. This will give the skin more time to absorb the cream for protection.
*Use a sun block. It is very important to use a sunscreen SPF 15 during the cold seasons. This will prevent sun damage.
*Exfoliate with a loofah. Exfoliating in the shower can help to dissolve keratin plugs in your skin.
