When the seasons change, so does the environment around us. The environment has a lot to do with how your skin feels and looks. In the summer, when it’s hot and humid, skin my feel greasy from the excess moisture. When it’s cold and dry, skin may feel tight and parched for some hydration.
Skin must adapt to the new set of climate conditions, but you can make its job a little easier by implementing a fall skincare routine outlined by these fall skincare tips.
10 Essential Skincare Tips For Fall
1. Avoid Skin Stripping Cleansers
The last thing you want to do to your skin as we head into cooler, drier weather is use skin-stripping ingredients. These will strip away any remaining moisture, increasing susceptibility to dryness, itching, dullness, and irritation. Avoid ingredients that strip the skin, such as sulfates and alcohol. Choose products that are all natural or suitable for sensitive skin.
The best cleanser for your skin is Goat’s Milk Soap. Goat’s Milk Soap is gentle and nourish for your skin. Each bar produces a mild, skin-nourishing cleansing experience, while offering a long-lasting magnificent lather. Goat’s Milk Soap leaves skin feeling clean, refreshed, moisturized, and radiantly healthy. Available in over 40+ fragrances for men, women, youth, and infants. Find the complete collection here.
Facial Cleansing Oils are another option. Cleansing oils effectively dissolves impurities, dirt, and makeup without stripping the skin of its natural defenses or leaving any oily residue. These incredible cleansers are made with a unique blend of herbal ingredients that address the concerns of each skin type.
All-natural Foaming Facial Washes are made for individuals who like a liquid cleanser, but without the skin-stripping ingredients. These Foaming Facial Washes are made to address the concerns of each skin type. Castile soap is used as the base with added plant oils and extracts to remove excess dirt and makeup while leaving skin hydrated.
2. Exfoliate With Gentle Ingredients
Getting rid of those dead skin cells on the surface helps your moisturizer penetrate much better. Why hydrate dead skin? It also brings back that youthful glow. Start the new season off with a full-body exfoliation session and keep it up weekly.
3. Add a Thicker Moisturizer
If you use a lightweight lotion during the summer, you may need to switch to a cream. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they reduce water loss from the outer layer of skin and provide hydration to the top layer of skin at the same time. The Whipped Shea Body Butter is packed with nutrient rich butters, oils, extracts and goat’s milk. For sever dry skin or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis we like the Neem Cream which is made with plant butters and oils known for their therapeutic properties.
4. Add a Body Lotion To The Mix
When summer humidity ends, the skin may start to feel tight, dry and itchy because there is less moisture in the air to help hydrate it. The easiest way to stop the itch and keep it under control is by loading up on hydration from head to toe. Moisturizers provide a protective barrier over the skin, allowing it to retain hydration and draw in hydration to the outer skin layer. Goat’s Milk Hand & Body Lotions is the perfect after shower full body moisturizer and the answer to dry hands from frequent handwashing.
One of the first skin-related symptoms many people experience with the cooler weather starts is chapped lips and dry cracked skin. Your lips and skin need protection from the cold, harsh weather especially if you are spending a considerable amount of time outdoors. Protect your lips and skin with ointments and balms that are made with waxes that act as a barrier for the skin, holding in moisture.
For dry, cracked brittle nails we like the Cuticle Repair Cream. Other options include the Soothing Skin Ointment, ProCURE Repair Balm, Foot Lotion Sticks, and of course to protect your lips, the Natural Vegan Lip Balms.
Keep these products handy; in your purse, gym bag, pocket and apply throughout the day. For optimal results make sure you use them before bed. Keep them on your nightstand or on your end tables and apply while you watch your favorite TV shows.
We also love these Soy Lotion Candles. They are the perfect at-home combination of aromatherapy, skin massage, and skin hydration. Soy Lotion Candles offer a spa-like treatment while moisturizing and protecting your skin. In addition to eliminating itching, the warmed non-GMO soy wax likewise tackles cracked skin, minor cuts, and chaffed skin, caused by dry and irritated conditions. Above all, soy warm body lotion candles add a layer of protection and locks in moisture while relieving, irritation and pain. They leave skin soft, supple, and luminous. Even more, they fill the room with an enchanting smell. Find the complete collection here.
6. Say Yes To Facial Serums
A facial moisturizing cream is usually enough for most skin types throughout the summer. However, when the weather begins to change, and temperatures drop, you may want to consider adding more hydration.
Natural Skin Revival’s Facial Serums are made to address the concerns of each skin type. Each skin type has its own sensitivities, therefore it’s important to know which herbal ingredients work best for each condition.
These incredible serums contain a high concentration of active all-natural ingredients. Each one tackles signs of aging, balances oil production, controls shine, and/or reduces redness and inflammation. Furthermore, they repair, heal and regenerate, while leaving skin soft and smooth.
7. Stay On Top of SPF
Autumn weather may appear to be less sunny, but harmful UV rays are still out there, especially if you are an outdoor enthusiast. Always protect skin with a safe sun blocking sunscreen using mineral zinc oxide. Check out these Sunblock options SUNCARE Body, Facial, and Lip Care.
8. Avoid Long, Hot Showers
We all love steamy, hot showers, but, during the colder months, heat can dehydrate your skin. Stick with a shorter scrub-down and apply a rich moisturizing cream or body butter afterward, as well as face lotion, to lock in hydration and keep your skin soft all day long.
9. Drink Plenty of Water and Watch Your Diet
What you do and do not eat also has a huge effect on the way your skin looks, so to protect your skin before winter hits, drink plenty of water and keep nutrients high by loading up on vegetables and healthy fats.
Simple sugars and carbohydrates stimulate reactions in skin that can lead to psoriasis, eczema, acne and rosacea. Avoid these during your daily life and you’ll experience fewer setbacks when you indulge at the holidays.
10. Use a Humidifier
As winter comes, the air dries out. The dryer the air, the more it steals moisture from your skin. If you live in a dry climate, use a humidifier, particularly in your bedroom at night.
Updating Your Fall Skincare Routine
Changing your skincare routine shouldn’t be a source of stress. Keep it simple with just a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen or adopt a lengthy skincare routine with more steps. For many, skincare is a form of self-care. For others, it’s a preventative measure to keep the signs of aging and breakouts at bay.
Whatever your skincare goals are, don’t let the colder seasons deter you. The foundation of your skincare routine should be hydration, nourishment, prevention, and protection. If you follow these fall skin care tips, you should be golden.
