Tips for Great Fall Skin

Fall is the season of rainy days, pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters, and dates by the fire. It’s also the season of unpredictable skin.  Although the sun and sweat might not be out as much during this time of year, don’t be fooled. The rest of the year calls for hydrated skin, which means that protection is just as important. Here are our best tips and tricks to ensure that your skin stays fall-proof.

Gentle Exfoliation

During the colder months, the skin is producing much less oils. This means that skin is even more sensitive. When it comes to exfoliation, make sure you switch to one that is more gentle and won’t further strip your skin. Although the grime might be to a minimum, there’s no excuse for not refreshing the surface of your skin.

Hop on the Facial Oil Bandwagon

Have you been curious about that facial oil that you’ve been seeing on instagram? This might be the perfect time to get your hands on it. Since your pores will be sweating much less during these last months of the year, it’s important to keep your skin supple and hydrated with an oil catered to your skin concerns.

DIY Face Mask

Don’t spend $40 on one face mask. Instead, spend way less than that on delicious foods to make your own mask! Research which fruits, vegetables, and herbs are the best for your skin type, mix them together, and presto! Since dry and sensitive skin is particularly pesky this time of year, we recommend a fast mask made with avocado, honey, and yogurt.

Moisturizer is Still your BFF

Although you shouldn’t be afraid to switch up your skin care routine throughout the changing seasons, it’s important to keep in mind that moisturizer is always a necessity. It will keep your skin refreshed throughout the day and give you a layer of hydration that your skin will be desperately needing.

Don’t Say Goodbye to Sunscreen

Even though Summer is over, the sun never ceases to shine. Don’t be fooled by the clouds in the sky or the fog rolling in – the sun is still there and can in fact cause even more damage to your skin during the colder months. So if you’re thinking about setting aside your daily SPF, think again!

Don’t Forget your Hands

Fall, also known as chronic-dry-hands season, can prove to be damaging to more than just the skin on your face. Besides your face, your hands are the second most exposed part of your body. Although warm-fuzzy mittens will keep the cold at bay, the non-porous temperatures will creating dry and cracked surface. Keep a travel size of your favorite natural hand lotion in your purse for on-the-go excursions. Most importantly, applying lotion at night will ensure that your hands are nice and smooth by the morning.
