As the leaves begin to change and the air gets colder, you may begin dreading the loss of your glowing summer skin. Well, we want you to know that you can still enjoy pumpkin patches and apple cider without giving up your favorite dewy look. The fresh and youthful skin you love is sustainable all year round… with the right regimen that is. So, let’s dive into how you can achieve natural beauty and a flawless-faced fall!
Maintain a fresh face
They say to put your best foot forward, but we’ve already got those covered in the cutest fall boots, so let’s put our best face forward instead! Fall winds and dry heat can take a serious toll on your face and highlight wrinkles, but a proper facial regimen can easily counteract the effects.
Introducing AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) into your fall routine 1 to 3 times per week is a great way to keep dry skin at bay. AHAs act as a gentle exfoliator to remove dry and damaged skin leaving fresh skin behind and a more plump, elastic face over time.
Also, swapping out your lightweight summer moisturizer with a thicker formula is the perfect way to help seal in hydration during cold weather months.
Don’t disregard body care
You might end up climbing into an oversized knit sweater for fall, but that doesn’t mean you should let your covered skin fend for itself! Keeping your whole body hydrated in autumn leaves you looking better and with less repair to do come springtime.
Before a shower, it’s the perfect time for a quick dry brushing session. Dry brushing refreshes the skin by improving circulation, but it also helps you detoxify your body, which feels great in the heavy, holiday-food-filled winter months!
Opting for a mega hydrating body oil in fall allows for an easier retention of your body’s moisture. Pour into your bath or slather on after you shower to stay moisturized all day.
Try a thicker body lotion or body butter in fall. Slather on a butter after you shower to stay supple all day.
Proper hydration begins on the inside
While all of these skincare tips will help you lock in moisture, first you’ll need to have moisture in your body that can be locked in. This means getting enough hydration from water and foods too!
Keep track of your water intake to make sure you are keeping your body hydrated. Try out hot water with lemon as a way to meet your water needs with a relaxing and warming drink.
Make sure you are eating enough fruits and vegetables every day because they are another great source of hydration and keep your skin looking its best!
While the start of fall may not be everyone’s favorite, it feels a whole lot better knowing that we don’t have to lose our glowing skin along with the warm summer days. All it takes is a few fall swaps to your skincare routine and your skin won’t miss that warm weather at all!
