Nice in autumn: women with great skin do it differently

As soon as it gets colder outside, your skin goes crazy. Pimples, dry spots and redness are some of the problems that you can now deal with again. But help is near. Our editor knows how.

1. Clean properly

The secret of beautiful skin does not necessarily lie in what we smear on, but in how we rid it of dirt and sebum. Ever since the Clerasil advertisement from the 90s, we have all known how blackheads are created: dirt and sebum clog the pores, the skin reacts and we get pimples and other nasty skin irritations. Intensive cleaning is therefore an absolute must! Like brushing your teeth. Our recommendation: first remove the make-up with cleansing oil or make-up removing tissues and micellar water, then rinse the face thoroughly with lukewarm water and then use a mild cleansing foam. After removing make-up with AHA or BHA peeling (be careful, don't forget your sunscreen the next day!), Remove impurities from the pores and then care for them with suitable products for your skin type.

2. Change the mask and let it dry

We not only have autumn, but unfortunately also Corona. Wearing mouth and nose protective masks is an additional problem for our skin and causes irritation and pimples on the face. And then the breath condenses really nicely under the mask in the cold season. A feel-good paradise for all kinds of bacteria, the warm and humid climate … Well, doing without the mask is not an option, so we have to make the most of it by cleaning the mask daily and, above all, letting it dry well before we put it in Pocket. Everything else still supports the colonization by bacteria. We do not want. Yuck, yuck.

3. Light protection even when it gets darker

UVA and UVB rays damage our skin. To protect it from premature skin aging, it is particularly important to use a day cream with sun protection. And all year round! Because we often protect our skin in summer when the sun is shining, but we are also exposed to the rays outside in autumn and winter, even when the sky is overcast. So please check the day care for the sun protection factor!

4. Do not wear shawls, scarves, etc. over your chin

Ladies, now you have to be strong: Scarves are the number one enemy of beauty! Yes, you read that right. Even if there is hardly anything better than snuggling up comfortably in your scarf during the cold season and pulling it up to your nose, leave it alone if you want to do something good for your skin. The reason: flakes of skin, make-up residues and crumbs get stuck between the fabric fibers, in addition, as with the mask, our breath condenses when we breathe into the scarf and the bacteria celebrate another wild party. So please wear the scarf under your chin, clean it regularly and avoid skin contact on the chin if possible.

5. Break for the skin

Every now and then we should give our skin a break and insert a few no-make-up days so that it can simply take a deep breath. Pampering Sundays with a mask and the like are also particularly good for her. And not just you, us too!
