6 Tips On How To Take Care Of Your Skin In The Fall/Winter Months

fall beauty skincare regimen

1. Don't Skip Your Vitamin C: Vitamin C is essential if you are looking for that even toned,
glowing skin. Its antioxidant properties help to get rid of the free radicals that are caused by both human and environmental factors. Free-radicals causes the skin to age rapidly. Ingest Vitamin C or apply it topically in the forms of creams or serums. Look for fruits or vegetables that have high vitamin c content such as strawberry, kiwi fruit, broccoli or red bell peppers. Give your skin the firm and healthy glow it needs this Fall/Winter season.

2. Stay Hydrated: Staying hydrated isn't only great for your body, but it also gives your skin smooth and a healthy plump complexion. Hydration means increasing the amount of water in your skin cells. During the fall and Winter seasons, our skin tends to dry out very quickly, this can be incredibly irritating. The obvious way is to drink lots of water or reach for foods that have high water content such as watermelon, cucumber, spinach or cantaloupe.

3. Apply Moisturizer: Reach for moisturizers that are heavy enough to hydrate your skin and protect your skin against the harsh Fall/Winter elements. Avoid long hot showers or baths that are responsible for stripping your skin of its natural oils.

Shop Moisturizers

4. Move Your Body: A certain percentage of the population suffer from the "winter blues" me included. This is the season, where we like to stay in, snuggle up, and keep warm. To combat the winter blues, working out is essential to boost that lost level of happiness. Physical activity stimulates the brains chemicals that make you feel happier and relaxed. Take a walk, run or head to the gym for a quick workout. Working out will also help you keep your weight in check during the festive season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year) instead of waiting to begin working out during the Spring/Summer season.

5. Exfoliate: I am a huge advocate when it comes to exfoliating. I exfoliate once a day. In simple terms, exfoliation is the removal of dry or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation helps with skin problems plus it also helps with blood circulation, which in turn helps to achieve healthy and glowing skin. When you don't exfoliate regularly, dead skin, dirt, and oil get trapped in the skin, making the skin appear dull and tired. Exfoliating gets rid of all the gunk on the skin; it also allows products to penetrate quickly into the skin for optimal absorption and to get the full benefits of the products you are using. Exfoliate your skin for brighter and glowing skin, skin detoxification, an increase in blood circulation, prevention of acne, and younger looking skin.

Shop exfoliates

6. Humidifier: Fall/Winter season is dry. A humidifier puts moisture back into the air. In these drier months, opt for a cool mist humidifier to combat the dry air that is unavoidable during the cold season. Your heating system also causes the air to be drier. A humidifier will help prevent dry skin, protect your hair and scalp, and help you sleep better.
