October is in full swing! Nice cool mornings definitely call for a nice cup of coffee in bed now. With the weather changing, we need to reflect more on choices we make for healthier body and skin.
With fall upon us, your skin may start to become dry. Colder, harsher weather, combined with increased usage of central heating, draws moisture from the air as well as from your skin. These temperature changes necessitate not only a new wardrobe but also some new daily skincare practices.
If you are in search of some authentic natural beauty tips for the fall season, keep on reading!
1. Use a moisturizer daily
Fall weather is generally less humid than summer weather, which can strip your skin's natural moisture. Even if you don't have dry skin the rest of the year, the result can be dry, flaky skin during these months.
Using a more nourishing moisturizer daily than you would in the summer helps hydrate and soothe dry skin. Oil-based moisturizers help your skin retain moisture better than water-based products. Honey for skin is a great choice in your organic beauty routine. Honey acts as a natural moisturizer, along with adding a glow to the skin! You can choose a honey soap or simply add extra honey in your morning coffee.
2. Exfoliate your skin
When dead skin cells tend to accumulate on dry skin, they can form a barrier that makes moisturizing your skin even more difficult. Exfoliating your body regularly, followed by a moisturizer, can help your skin look and feel smoother.
To keep it completely natural, you can simply use Fivesso products as an excellent organic scrub! Coffee is rich in antioxidants, can kill skin cells and remove impurities, making the skin smoother and brighter.
3. Remember to eat healthy
Some of the most enjoyable traditions of the fall season can lead to some very unhealthy eating habits. Tailgating, trick-or-treating, and other holiday activities can result in a significant increase in processed foods such as bread, casseroles, hot dogs, chips, and sugary treats.
Foods high in refined carbohydrates and those with a high glycemic index can cause sugar and hormone levels to spike, exacerbating acne and other skin conditions. Seasonal superfoods, such as pomegranate, berries, peaches, pumpkin, and other winter squashes, are high in antioxidants that are beneficial to the skin. Of course, don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
4. Use a humidifier
Temperatures change in Autumn are not only happening outside, but also inside your home and office. For the first time in months, central heating systems turn on, sucking humidity from the inside air and the surface of your skin.
Humidifiers work to restore moisture to both! Your skin can retain its hydration. After all, itchy or flakey are not the best conditions you want your skin to be in during the fall season!
The fall season is as potentially harsh on your skin, as it is aesthetically pleasing! However, you can definitely go without investing in high-end skin products. Instead, make the most of organic properties of the items you have available at home. Natural skincare routines are the new trend in self-care and they are definitely rewarding!
