As the days get shorter, the temperatures start to drop and the air becomes drier, which can very easily cause your skin to lose moisture. Fall is a time of change, and one of the biggest changes affecting our skin is the increase in sensitivity, irritation, and dryness. That’s why we highly recommend that you maintain a healthy skin care routine – all you need to do is try these beauty tips and tricks. Not only will these prepare your skin for the harsher winter climate, but make you look and feel fabulous!
Use a hydrating facial cleanser
When it comes to fall, the only thing that should be crispy are the leaves – not your skin! When the weather is cooler outside, many women tend to like that the temperature in the shower should be increased. However, in the long run this is actually quite damaging to your skin. With that comes the use of harsh soaps – this may be good for summer but certainly not good for fall or winter. So to protect your skin, try a more nourishing and hydrating cleanser. Your skin will be so much smoother and healthier.
Try a thicker moisturizer
Due to climate and temperature change in the fall, we should switch to a thicker and more hydrating moisturizer before bed and in the morning. This is so essential while waiting to conserve its dew. So, during the cooler months, say goodbye to the light, oil-free moisturizer you’ve been using all summer.
Treat your feet
Sandals, flip flops, and some on-trend slides are all summer essentials, but believe it or not, they really make you feel. That is why you should really consider exfoliating your feet at least once a week to prepare for the colder months. Most of the time our feet are neglected and never get the TLC they deserve. Plus, after long days spent in stuffy and compact shoes and socks, your feet really deserve some attention.
Protect your lips
Naturally, when the air starts to get drier and cooler, our lips tend to get drier as well. This can often leave your lips chapped, chapped, and sore. It is so important to moisten as often as possible to prevent them from drying out. There are tons of lip balm that can help you get the best results. Another great tip is to stay as hydrated as possible throughout fall and winter – so drink as much H20 as you can!
Give your hands some attention
Many people love the fall season, but with it comes a lot of drawbacks, especially for our skin. While most take care of their face and body during the colder months, people tend to neglect their hands. This is a big mistake! So, to keep your hands hydrated and less dry, take care of your hands as much as you can. You can do this by using oil on your cuticles and a very rich hand cream. Do it several times a day and just before going to bed!
