How to Protect Your Skin During the Transition to Fall
Posted on 19 September 2016
Hot summer days are over and the cool temperatures, changing winds and drier climate can wreck havoc on your skin. Here are a few tips to keep your skin looking young and feeling hydrated during the dry months ahead:
- Don’t take hot showers. Even though the temperatures are dropping and it feels great to have a hot shower or bath, opting for warm water will allow the skin to retain more of its moisture content and will slow water loss from the skin.
- Use a thick-high oil content lotion to moisturize the skin daily. Also, applying moisturizer before leaving the house will provide a protective barrier between your skin and the elements. For the body we recommend our Whipped Body Butter, as it is rich in shea butter and perfect for fall and winter months. For the face, apply a few drops of either the Balancer or Elixir facial serums to the whole face, and a drop of the Repair to each under eye area before heading out.
- Drink your water. Drinking 2-3L of water a day will do more for your skin than you ever imagined. Besides keeping your skin looking clear, it helps provide hydration from within.
- Wearing protective outer gear like gloves, scarves and hats will help protect against dry skin caused by wind a cool temperatures.
