It happens every year; summer comes to an end and the crisp Fall weather slowly makes its way in. As hard as it can be to pack away those shorts and summer dresses, it feels good to bring out your cozy sweaters and a pair of comfy jeans.
Don't forget though, just because your jeans and sweaters cover your skin doesn't mean that you can take a break from your skin care regimen.
Proper care can mean the difference between healthy skin and dry flaky skin. Here are 6 skin care tips for Fall to keep you looking beautiful through the Fall season.
1) Reassess Your Body Cleanser
In the summer, fruity shower gels are a popular treat, but just make sure that your current favorite isn't going to dry out your skin when the dry cold weather comes in.
You'll want to find a shower gel that is soap-free as well as hydrating. In the Fall and Winter, I like to put away the gels and bring out a creamy body wash with ingredients like coconut milk or shea butter.
2) Try an Oil-Based Scrub
We think oily based scrubs are perfect for Fall and Winter because you are getting the exfoliating benefits with the extra bonus of hydrating oils. When it comes to oily scrubs, the choices are endless! You can find scrubs that have a lot of oil swimming on top all the way to scrubs with more of a solid sugar or salt base.
We recommend our Fruit Smoothie sugar based scrub, filled with oils your skin will love this Fall. It always gets the highest rating from users, and at $30, it's a deal!
3) Moisturize Every Single Day
We can't emphasize how important this is enough; if you want to keep dry skin under control this Fall, you must hydrate your skin on a daily basis. The best time to apply your lotion is right after you've dried off after your shower or bath. Seal in the moisture that's already been absorbed into your skin.
Our Custom Whipped Shea Body Butter is an excellent way to moisturize and care for your skin daily. We always have promos and you are able to customize it with a few scents without having to pay extra.
4) Organize Your Skin Care Routine
The dry Fall weather can make keeping up with your skin care routine seem impossible! From facial masks, facial exfoliators and other extra skin care steps, it can be hard to remember when you applied your last mask or took the time to exfoliate. This is a problem that you won't ever have to worry about if you take the time to make a skincare routine.
I know it sounds funny, but if you know that every Sunday morning you'll apply a facial mask, and Wednesdays and Fridays are saved for exfoliating, you'll no longer have to think about it. Make your schedule for the days that work best for you and stick with it. Your skin will get the constant benefits, and you'll see it in your face.
5) Remember Your Feet
Fall is boot season and I know all of us ladies can’t wait to break them out but repeat after me, "I will not let my feet go without proper care this fall and winter". Say it, and mean it. Your feet are going to be stuck inside your boots and heels for months to come, and if you continue taking care of them and exfoliating them on a regular basis, you'll have no problem popping back on your cute summer sandals when the time comes.
Plus, having nice feet just make you feel good, so grab a scrub and keep it in your shower.
My all-time favorite is our Citrus Detox Body Scrub. It is salt based which really helps remove any dead or dry skin keeping your feet summer ready all year long.
6) Indulge in a New Hand Cream
Fall is flu season and your hands will be in and out of water on a very regular basis trying to fight away the germs, so you need to apply moisturizer more frequently to your hands than the rest of your body especially during the dry months.
That's why it's so important to have a hand cream in your handbag. When you are out and about and need to wash your hands, you'll have the hand creme by your side instead of at your sink.
Our travel bag is a cute little Fall survival item that will help you stay exfoliated and moisturized this Fall. With a mini scrub, hand cream and lip balm you are sure not to get dried out.
That's all for now, have a lovely Fall!
