Fall Into Your Skin

With fall in full swing, it's time to talk skin. Autumn brings cooler weather (sweater weather!) and a drop in humidity, which makes for dry, stale air and even drier skin. Mix this with dry heat from radiators, and it's a setup for skin disasters like eczema and dry, itchy skin. That said, fall season is also a perfect time to reassess your go-to skin-care routine. And, in general, it's always good to approach skin care seasonally, just like you do your wardrobe. As the seasons change, so should your skin care. It's minor tweaks that can make a major difference. There are many methods and products out there to keep your skincare in check. It’s important to replenish the moisture in your skin and prepare for the harsher temperatures that are soon to come in the next few months. It only takes a few small changes to keep your skin looking as healthy as it does during the summer. Here are some tips to keep your skin glowy, even in the colder weather:

1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate, by drinking plenty of water, the skin loves it! . If your skin gets especially dry during the colder months, consider switching out cleansers too. Hydrating cleansers retain the moisture in your skin and don’t strip it of the natural oils you produce. If your face feels tight and dry after cleansing, you may need to transition to a cream-based cleanser. Maintaining your skin barrier is especially important when the season changes. There are many great hydrating cleansers on the market, but these two from Thrive and Mychelle get the job done for a great price. They are both suitable for all skin types, sensitive skin, and fully cleanse without drying it out. face.

2. Moisturizing is key. Regularly using a moisturizer should be a part of any good skin care regimen, but some are better than others. Choose a clean moisturizing lotion with plenty of vitamins (see below) with an SPF to protect your skin during the day. Also use lotions that are oil free, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), allergy and dermatologist tested. Vitamin A and Vitamin B5 increase firmness and build moisture levels. Anti-Oxidant Vitamins C and E help protect new skin and fight skin damage PABA-Free SPF 15+ sunscreens help prevent premature lines and wrinkles. The most important times to use moisturizer are after a bath, shave or exfoliation. For some, this might be twice a day. Moisturizing after a shower is very important because hot water strips all the moisture and oils out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry. While hot water may be relaxing, it also wreaks havoc on your skin. Never skip the moisturizer. Here's some of my favorite face and body moisturizers. Also, you can save money by making your own body moisturizing lotion by mixing 100% organic shea butter, with organic coconut oil, organic cold press olive oil, and organic Jojoba oil and apply to skin.

3. Rest well. Getting a good night’s rest is critical for your overall health and well-being, but it also turns out there’s some scientific truth to the notion of beauty sleep. “Our skin rests and repairs itself while we sleep,” says friend to VaughnCatle Francesca Fusco, MD, a dermatologist and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai in New York City. “With no UV [ultraviolet] exposure and no dynamic facial muscles contracting, it’s the best time of day for skin.”

Here's my cleansing and moisturizing routine. After cleansing my face I pat dry. While slightly damp, I apply a drop of Allpa Botanicals Pure and Organic Olive Oil, and the Allpa Botanicals Orange Oil (Vitamin C) to my face to seal in moisture. The face oil is 100% pure with a carrier oil, and one small drop each is all you need.( A little goes a long way) Then I follow up with the Mychelle Hyaluronic Hydrating Cream, finishing with the Urban Skin RX Oil Blocking Moisturizer 30SPF sunscreen.
