Fall skincare routine
Fall weather means it is time to get cozy. Sweaters, flannel and corduroy start making their appearances. Indoor fireplaces start being lit. Root vegetables, cookies and pies are baking in the oven. All these signs of Fall signal a time to tweak your skincare routine.
As the days and nights cool off, the air loses moisture and so does your skin. It’s time to start adding extra moisture into your skincare routine. Here are some tips to help your skin transition into cooler weather and cozy nights.
Help your skin absorb moisture by removing dead skin cells. Create a routine to exfoliate on a regular basis. Use a toner daily or several times a week. Our Fruit Acid Toner has alpha hydroxy acids that help gently and naturally remove dead skin cells and tone skin. Use a mud mask weekly or several times a month for a deep exfoliation. Try our B Green Mud Mask, it’s full of organic herbs and green clay. You can customize it by adding your own choice of ingredients like honey or avocado.
Add face moisture
Summer typically requires less moisture for face and body products. Your Fall routine will need additional moisture. Sometimes that means applying products twice instead of once, adding in another product or switching products. If you are using a serum, you may need to add a moisturizer. If you are using a moisturizer, you may need a heavier moisturizer. Customers love our Citrine Complete Botanical Treatment, it is a serum and moisturizer in one. If you need a little more moisture, you can layer it with a pump or two of Carrot Facial Dream Cream or B Quenched Facial Oil. You can also use our Tinted Moisturizer if you want to keep a little Summer glow.
Add body moisture
Take warm showers but avoid hot showers, they can dehydrate skin. When you are done with showers and baths, don’t dry off completely. Use a lotion to help absorb water that is still on your skin for extra moisturizing. Try EWG VERIFIED™ Eco Body Lotion with healing Tamanu oil.
It’s important to hydrate the skin from the inside out. Water is the best way to hydrate. Make sure you are drinking enough water everyday. There are many foods that are hydrating too. Apples, pears, blackberries, citrus fruit and green leafy vegetables are all Fall foods that can hydrate skin. Several people here start their day with green smoothies. It's a great way to hydrate with nutritious ingredients.
Use a humidifier
Humidifiers add moisture back into the air in your home. When we start using the heater in our homes, it can dry the air. Using a humidifier will help your skin, especially at night when you sleep. Our skin is busy repairing itself while we sleep.
Hands get drier in the Fall and need extra care. If hands are being washed a lot and exposed to harsh chemicals and hand sanitizers, it’s important to moisturize. Use products with natural, gentle ingredients like our Healing Hand Butter with Kokum butter. Try to avoid irritating soaps whenever possible. Our Foaming Hand Soap is gentle and effective.
Enjoy the transition into Fall and cooler weather. Be kind to yourself and your skin. Thanks for spending time with us.
