The colder weather of fall and winter can really take a toll on your skin! Fight the flakes with these fall skin care tips:
- Eat power foods. According to Women’s Health magazine, your skin won’t look its best if it isn’t getting the nutrients from food that it needs. Power foods that specifically combat dry skin include almonds, dark chocolate, flaxseeds, safflower oil, and spinach.
- Wear sunscreen. As winter approaches, the sun is coming closer to the earth, and its rays are getting even stronger. Don’t skimp on the sunscreen just because the season is changing and weather is getting colder outside. Sun exposure weakens your skin’s ability to regenerate and reduces its radiance.
- DIY (Do it Yourself). What’s better than a hot bath on a cold autumn day? One that includes homemade lavender-coconut oil bath truffles! You can transform your bath at home into a spa experience with a few simple ingredients. Click here for the recipe.
- Go fragrance free. Fragrances can cause skin care–related allergic reactions, making the battle against dryness even harder. Choose products that are labeled as “fragrance-free” to reduce irritation. Products marked as “unscented” usually contain small amounts of fragrance.
- Moisturize. A good moisturizer can be your best friend during the colder, drier months—day and night. Women’s Health recommends dabbing a thick layer of ceramide-laced face cream on damp skin to hold in moisture. Expensive version: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Premiere Activation Cream SPF 30. Cheaper alternative: Neutrogena Intensified Day Moisture SPF 15. Don’t forget your elbows, knees, and ankles too!
