7 Essential Fall Skin Care Tips

Autumn Skin Care

It’s time to cure summer damaged skin! The gentler climate of fall is a perfect time for much needed repair that can set you on your way to a flawless winter complexion. Visible results of summer skin damage include extreme discolorations, premature aging, wrinkling and dryness. Proper care can mean the difference between healthy skin and dry flaky skin. ~ Uhuru/Elegance Makeup ~

 

 

#1 – DO: MOISTURIZE DAILY

If you want to keep dry skin at under control, you MUST hydrate your skin on a DAILY basis. The best time to apply your lotion is right after you’ve dried off after your shower or bath because it seals in the     moisture that have already been absorbed into your skin.

#2 – DON’T: STOP USING SUN PROTECTION

Despite the lack of sun, you still need to exercise caution when it comes to protecting your skin from UV rays. Winter doesn’t necessarily signal a break from sun exposure because UV rays penetrate clouds and overcast skies, and reflect off water, cement, sand, and snow. Common sites of skin cancer lesions are the areas of the body that endure year round exposure, such as the hands, face and ears. Continue using SPF rated products.

#3 – DO: PROTECT YOUR LIPS

Start moisturizing early to prevent cracked & chapped lips this winter.

#4 – DON’T: DON’T LICK

When all possible, avoid licking your lips. If you do, you’ll only chap your lips even more. Keep a lip balm in your purse and apply frequently or when tempted to lick your lips.

#5 – DO: TRY OIL-BASED SCRUB

I think oily based scrubs are perfect for fall and winter because you are getting the exfoliating benefits with the extra bonus of hydrating oils. And when it comes to oily scrubs, the choices are endless! You can     find scrubs that have a lot of oil swimming on top all the way to scrubs that are more of a solid consistency.

#6 – DON’T: FORGET ABOUT YOUR FEET

Because your feet are going to be stuck inside boots for months to come, it’s important to take care of them and exfoliate them on a regular basis. That way, when the time comes, you’ll have no problem popping back on your sandals with no shame. Scrub your feet 1-2 times a week and you’ll enjoy soft feet that won’t snag your sheets.

#7 – DO: INVEST IN CUTICLE OIL

One sign of cold weather is dry cuticles. Many times your regular hand cream isn’t heavy-duty enough to tackle dry cuticles. By investing in cuticle oil, you can quickly take care of the cracked skin. Simply apply oil onto your cuticles and rub in. Do this a couple times a week for best protection.
