October often starts the beginning of the cooler fall season. The changing conditions require a change in one’s skin care. No matter what your skin type is, it does react to the changing temperatures and dryer conditions marked by fall. Below are a few suggestions to protect and restore you natural beauty.
During the summer, controlling oil and helping the skin resist the effects of the sun and heat are top priorities. Coming into fall, focus more on balancing the skin and repairing the previous season's damage. Once humidity in the air drops, cold winds blow, and the heater starts to run. These things can lead to dry, sensitive skin. Therefore, concentrate on moisturizing your skin during this time. Rich oil based creams and lotions, especially those laden with nutrient rich essential oils, are vital.
Use Gentle Cleansers.
Whether you have dry skin, oily skin or combination skin, it is advisable to switch to a milder cleanser or face wash during fall. This will help to reduce the moisture loss. Avoid using harsh soaps or foaming cleansers as they tend to strip off the essential lipids in the skin.
Revitalize with antioxidants.
Antioxidants protect and reinvigorate your skin from the damage caused by free radicals and prevent the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Strive to choose natural sources for these necessary rebuilders through creams and masks utilizing organic fruits, herbs, nutty oils, vitamin embracing essential oils. Lavish your natural skin with mother nature’s very best, as you enjoy embrace a radiant fall season!
