Summer is a wonderful time of year that is enjoyed by many. It is a time to have family reunions, BBQ cookouts, weddings, and more. It is truly a fantastic time of year here in Denver, Colorado and elsewhere, but it is gradually winding down as the transition is made into the seasons of Fall and Winter. With this change, skin care also has to be addressed differently.

In a recent articlein Bustle titled 7 Fall Skin Care Tips You Should Start Utilizing Even Before The Summer’s Over, author Kelly Dougher outlined some tips and suggestions to help prepare for Fall and Winter. As many of you are squeezing in final Summer plans at the beach, mountains, or city, Dougher maintains, “you may have forgotten all about updating your skin care routine for fall. However, if I’m being totally honest, it’s probably the most important part of prepping for the season. This is especially important for those with dry, easily irritated skin that suffers from winter weather, but it applies to everyone else as well.” It is easy to get caught up in the fun of a season that is winding down. Personally, I have been spending a lot of time hiking, going to festivals in Denver, and attending BBQ parties with family and friends. It is important to keep your skin care routine up though and modify it for the different seasons.

Dougher explains that there are a few things that one can do as we transition from Summer to Fall and Winter that will make your skin happier and keep it beautiful. Here are some of the key takeaway points from the article:
