5 Tips to Prepare Your Skin for Fall

September 01, 2015

Back to reality -- packing lunches and backpacks and thinking of the changing seasons. Tomorrow is the boys' first day of school. I have one headed off to fifth grade and one taking college classes online. I am NOT ready for summer vacation to be finished.

Fall is right around the corner. Do you know what that means?  Before you know it, furnaces will be turned on and the air will be less humid. I say that as we are in the midst of a heatwave and I have the A/C on. When it comes to your beauty routine, that means changing things up to compensate for dry skin.

 

  • Nix the harsh foaming cleansers and choose a creamy formula.

  • A milky cleanser will be gentler on your skin this time of year.  Most foaming cleansers contain irritating sulfates. Creamy or lightly foaming cleansers are best. Look for a sulfate free formula for gentle cleansing. Cleansers with green tea and cucumber are especially gentle around the eye area.

  • Spritz on some hydration!

  • Facial mists are a fabulous addition to your skin care regimen this fall! When you spray on moisturizing ingredients, they help nourish skin cells and will help your facial cream work more effectively.  Use a mist prior to moisturizing and again to set makeup. You can even use them throughout the day if you are feeling dry


  •  Switch from a lightweight, oil free moisturizer to a cream.

  • While fluid formulations are ideal when your skin is holding more moisture, a richer body cream is often necessary to help keep the skin hydrated.  Massage a rich cream into your skin each night so you can wake up with velvety soft skin.

     

  • Nourish lips with plant oils.

  • Protect your lips now before the cold temperatures hit. Unlike those waxy lip balms that really do nothing other than coat the lips, our plant-based lip oils will help soothe and treat your lips with wholesome ingredients to keep chapped lips at bay.

     

  • Use body oils to quench the skin after your shower.

  • Hot water can dry out your skin.  Very often, you step out of the shower only to find that your skin itches from the dehydration. Unlike traditional body lotions, oils absorb right into your skin instantly and help your skin retain moisture. The new breed of body oils come in spray form, so you won’t have slippery hands -- or bottles to drop! Best of all, we offer several varieties so you can be sure you are getting the right one!
