Fall is a beautiful time of year. The leaves are beautiful colors, and the weather is just cool enough for you to unpack your favorite boots!
Keeping your skin beautiful during Fall can be quite easy, if you remember a few tips.
Although the cold air may be great for that cute knit scarf, it’s not so great for your skin. As the weather gets colder, you lose moisture from your skin. This loss of moisture results in dry, dehydrated and dull looking skin.
Here are a few steps to maintain beautiful, healthy skin during the Fall!
Use a Creamy Bath Wash
In the cooler weather, it is important to maintain moisture in every part of your skin care routine, especially during the cleansing process. Shower gels that have a soapy lather may feel good, but they can strip your skin of a lot of moisture. Sometimes that squeaky clean feeling isn’t the best for your skin. Instead, opt for a Creamy Body Wash, that removes dirt and oil from your skin without stripping it of moisture. Our Shea Body Cleansing Cream is a hydrating creamy body-wash that gently cleanses and mositurizes the skin. It is the perfect addition to your Fall skin care routine.
Exfoliate with an Oil-Based Scrub
An oil based scrub like our Shea Body Polish is essential during the fall because it exfoliates and hydrates your skin. The scrub exfoliates by removing excess skin cells and the oil penetrates to hydrate dry skin.
Use a Cream Moisturizer
It’s time to put that lotion away! Fall is the time to use a heavier body cream moisturizer. An oil based body cream is great for colder weather because it reduces water loss from the outer layer of the skin and hydrates the skin at the same time, keeping the skin soft and moisturized during the colder months. With 8 essential oils like Avocado and Coconut our Shea Body Souffle is the ultimate body cream moisturizer!
Some more quick tips for great fall skin include:
- Use a non-petroleum based lip balm
- Keep your favorite body cream in your purse through-out the day, to keep hands and skin moisturized
- Drink plenty of water
- Take more baths instead of showers
- Use a humidifier in your home
