Fall Skin Care Tips
It’s a good idea to be prepared for the cooler weather. That way many of the seasonal challenges your skin faces can be prevented, rather than trying to fix them after they’ve already become an issue. Here are some of the best products on the market to keep your skin healthy and feeling great, all season long.
Jojoba Oil – What’s great about this intense moisturizing oil, is that you can use it on both your skin and help to lock in moisture and give you soft, amazing looking skin. Jojoba oil contains long-chain essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols that nourish the skin and hair. Use it as a deep conditioner for your hair, and on your skin after you get out of the shower.
Shea Butter – Widely known as a powerful moisturizer, shea butter is great for stubborn dry areas such as the hands, elbows, and feet. It’s made from tree nuts of the karite trees that grow in Western and Central Africa. It’s safe to use everyday and it smells great. Apply it all over, and liberally on extra dry patches. You can even use it as a scalp moisturizer!
Vitamin D – During the colder months, we tend to stay indoors more and many of us end up deficient in vitamin D. Simply taking an over-the-counter supplement can help keep your body balanced, and it protects your bones too!
Lip Balm – Don’t forget to show your lips some love; they need protection from the weather too. Simply adding a hydrating lip balm to your daily routine can protect against dry, chapped and cracked lips that can become painful and embarrassing. Make sure you look for a product that does not contain parabens or silicone. One of our favorites is this Lip Care Stick by Dr. Hauschka.
Bath Soaks – A great way to rehydrate dry, tired skin is to relax in a warm bath. Look for a bath soak that contains hyaluronic acid for the ultimate in hydrating and skin protection.
