Keep Your Skin Glowing This Fall
As hues of golden and amber slowly start to adorn Colorado, one can’t help but marvel at the magic of the crisp season; but there’s also a worrying thought that creeps in at the same time,
‘How to avoid dry skin this fall?’
Here we are with some Fall Skin Care Tips for dry skin to help us deal with these wild weather swings. With Colorado’s naturally dry climate, hydration, and especially skin hydration is a reoccurring problem for many. A number of people resort to products that may contain harmful chemicals, and which more often than not can cause side effects, such as redness, itching, and even blistering.
If you have sensitive and dry skin, don’t risk purchasing a product that your skin may not react to well; instead, try the following natural alternatives to prevent and soothe dry skin.
Use a Humidifier
With central heating and the dry air of fall both drying out your skin, your skin loses a lot more moisture than warmer, more humid seasons. One of the best things you can do to help keep your skin supple is to use a humidifier in your bedroom while you sleep so your skin can heal and regain moisture. Yes, they take up space but your skin is definitely worth it.
Take Warm Showers
We know, hot showers feel fantastic. But they dry out and irritate your skin to no end which is a big deal in the fall, when your skin is already drying out. So chill out with the hot showers and keep it shorter than normal to avoid dryness and irritation.
Extra tip: Soap also irritates and dries out the skin so only use it where it is essential (do we have to be specific?) and don’t use soap over your entire body every time you shower. It won’t clean your skin better, just irritate your skin more.
Lock in Moisture with Oils
Right after you hop out of your warm shower, pat your skin until it’s almost dry and then immediately apply oils to your skin. Use Jojoba Oil for your body moisturizer and Pumpkin Seed Oil as your facial moisturizer.
Jojoba Oil is derived from the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis, also known as the Jojoba plant, which has been used in folk medicine for centuries.
One of the most beneficial properties of Jojoba Oil is that when applied to the skin, it creates a protective coat that prevents the skin’s natural moisture from escaping. Furthermore, it’s filled with a number of nourishing nutrients, and most importantly, with vitamin E that serves an antioxidant.
Jojoba Oil can be safely applied to the face and other body parts, leaving the skin refreshed and protected from cold. Apply as an all-over body moisturizer to keep your skin feeling fresh.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Similarly to Jojoba Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil is also filled with beneficial minerals that contribute to a fresh-looking nourished skin. Some of these include vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids.
Its antioxidant properties help retain moisture, while fighting free radicals. Needless to say, it’s the perfect fall remedy for dry skin.
Eat Unprocessed Foods
While Pumpkin Seed Oil can do marvels for dry skin when applied topically, pumpkin seeds can also contribute to healthier skin when eaten. Unprocessed nutritious food is essential for your health, in term of your inner physical wellbeing, as well as outer beauty, i.e. a young-looking fresh skin.
The holidays are full of sugary treats that can wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure to feed yourself healthy vegetables, fruits, grains, and meats to keep yourself nourished and happy with your healthy-looking skin.
It’s nice to keep your house cozy and warm but if your skin is being exposed to temperature extremes, it can cause flushed skin and can even break blood vessels in the upper layers of your skin. Yikes!
Be sure to keep yourself warm with coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to keep your skin from feeling the extreme temperature changes from the outdoors to indoors.
Taking good care of your skin matters, so make sure you treat it with the best natural options this fall. Be sure to take good care of your skin, and avoid wrinkled hands, blisters, painful and peeling skin.
