Trick or Treat: How to Keep Your Skin Radiant This Fall

Autumn embodies a wonderful blend of cozy sweaters, crispy leaves, and an array of flavors from pumpkin spice to apple cinnamon. Yet, amidst all the Halloween fun, our skin often goes through a frightful time, contending with cooler air and fluctuating temperatures. But fear not! The experts at Hidden Door will unearth your secret potion to maintaining that enchanting autumnal glow without any tricks, just treats! 👻

Beware of the Ghostly Dryness

Autumn’s cooler nights can strip your skin of its natural moisture, leading to a ghastly pale and dry appearance. That's why replenishing lost hydration is paramount. Consider incorporating hyaluronic acid into your routine, a miraculous ingredient capable of holding 1000x its weight in water! Skinceutical's Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier is a multi-beneficial corrective serum proven to amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels.

Witch, Please: SPF is Still a Must!

The deceivingly cooler temperatures may suggest a recess from sunscreen, but UV rays do not take a holiday in the fall, especially in Texas. In fact, UVA rays (responsible for aging) are persistent year-round. So, ensure your skin is shielded with a broad-spectrum SPF. Consider our Daily Shield Tinted Sunscreen from Epionce. This SPF 50 sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection that evens out skin tone while imparting a natural-looking healthy glow.

Carve Out Time for Exfoliation

Dead skin cells can accumulate faster during the colder months, creating a barrier that prevents your skincare products from permeating properly. Gentle exfoliation once a week can effectively banish these cells, gifting your skin a ghostly smooth texture. The American Academy of Dermatology offers fantastic tips to exfoliate without causing undue harm to your delicate skin.

Mask and You Shall Receive: Nourishment!

Embrace the spirit of Halloween by incorporating a mask - a face mask, that is! A hydrating mask can work wonders in replenishing your skin’s moisture. For a special Halloween Treat - try the Sundae Best® Chocolate Softening Mask with CoQ10 from Farmhouse Fresh - a natural, blended active face mask with soothing wholesome ingredients like cocoa, coconut milk and honey in addition to powerhouse enzymes that boost your natural defenses against the look of wrinkles and sagging - including CoQ10, Live Carrot Fruit Cells and Ginseng Extract. This mask leaves your face feeling tight, smooth, and radiant!

The Spellbinding Power of Antioxidants

Antioxidants play a crucial role in neutralizing free radicals that can wreak havoc on your skin. Incorporating a vitamin C serum during the daytime can protect your skin from environmental aggressors and keep it looking as vibrant as fall foliage. The benefits of Vitamin C have been thoroughly researched for its many benefits so check in with your Hidden Door skin expert to get their recommendation on which Vitamin C product is right for you.

In the enchanting month of October, while we indulge in tricks, treats, and delightful frights, it's crucial to bestow some care upon our skin to prevent any truly horrifying after-effects. Implementing these autumn skincare tips will safeguard your skin against the spooky specters of dryness, dullness, and damage, ensuring your skin remains a mesmerizing treat all season long!
