Up The Moisture

As the temperatures drop, it's essential to add more moisture to your skin to combat dehydration and keep it feeling soft and smooth. Cooler weather means higher atmospheric pressure, which pulls moisture from the air, leading to dry, itchy skin. To ensure noticeable results, reach for a deeply penetrating product like body oil that absorbs deeply, entering the base layers of the skin for greater moisturization. Look for a product that contains potent ingredients like Argan, Vitamin E, and Green Tea Seed that help bring luminosity and sheen. Those with sensitive skin should avoid scented oils to help ensure comfort.


Add In A Weekly Face Mask

Face masks are a luxurious way to exfoliate and moisturize sensitive facial skin, which gets full exposure to the fall weather. A high-quality face mask can also help minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, fight acne breakouts, and smooth texture. Choose a clay-based mask to help reduce excess oil, which can lead to acne flair-ups, and look for deep cleansing ingredients like Kaolin Clay and moisturizing humectants such as Aloe Vera. Using your face mask just one to two times per week can help keep your skin moisturized and healthy.

Exfoliate Dry, Dead Skin

As the cooler weather dries your skin, it's essential you add exfoliation into your daily skincare routine. A gentle exfoliating body scrub removes dead skin and soothes irritation and itchiness. It will also help penetrate deeply into pores removing stubborn dirt and oil and leaving your skin clean and glowing. Look for a body scrub that uses quality ingredients without harmful additives; some of the best include moisturizing butters and oils such as shea and mango butter, avocado, sunflower and Vitamin E oil.  A gentle exfoliating body scrub can help you fight redness and irritation, leaving soft, nourished, and moisturized skin you'll adore!


This fall, you don't have to settle for dry, itchy, red, and irritated skin; instead, you can ensure you keep the summer glow and hydration you worked hard to achieve. By making a few simple adjustments to your skincare routine, like switching to a deeply moisturizing body oil, applying a clay face mask, and exfoliating with a gentle body scrub, your skin will stay moisturized and glowing, so you can enjoy all the beauty fall has to offer!
