How keep a beautiful healthy skin during Fall?
Fall is so beautiful; nature is transforming under our eyes with beautiful colors. We overlook the fact that beautiful autumn also brings dry air and cooler temperatures. Like nature, our skin changes during fall; our skin becomes rough, dry, dehydrated, and dull. It is very important to adjust our organic skin care routine to have a beautiful and glowing skin during fall.
Here are 5 tips to tweak our natural and organic skin care routine for fall.
Tip #1. Switch to an Heavier Facial Daily Moisturizer
Heavier moisturizers will hydrate our skin and prevent skin moisture loss; Moisture loss creates dry and flaky skin. What heavier moisturizers to choose? If you're using a gel moisturizer, switch to an organic lotion moisturizer. Acure Organics has thicker natural and organic day creams that provide great protection. Treatment oils are another option if you do not want to change your facial moisturizer. You simply put some facial moisturizer in the palm of your hands and mix in few drops of the treatment oil. Few oils to add to your moisturizer: Indie Lee Moisturizing oil and Bee Naturals.
Tip #2. Use Toners to Boost Skin Hydration
Toners are so important in a skin care routine during cool and dry weather. They add additional moisture to the skin. My all time favorite and a basic in my skin care routing is the Thayers Facial Toner. Another toner you could use is S.W. Basics toner. Made with raw apple cider vinegar and clary sage essential oil, it is perfect for oily skin. A third option is the HollyBeth Organics toner; it is a rose geranium facial toner that works well on dry skin. This toner USDA organic certified; it soothes the skin and draws moisture to it.
Tip #3. Get Your Scrub On
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!! Exfoliation is a must during cooler temperatures. It brightens skin complexion by getting rid of flaky skin. Don't have a facial scrub for fall? Try the certified organic HolleyBeth Organics, Grits and Honey Scrub. This is a simple scrub with great results. It smooths and nourishes the skin with its honey content. One of my favorite oil-based scrub is 100% Pure: All Natural and Organic, Body Scrub - Coconut; this scrub smells wonderful and it is ultra-moisturizing. It is so gentle on my skin and always leaves it silky soft. If you have cellulite like me, BaeBody Arabica Coffee Scrub will be your best friend. It makes my thighs look great. Getting rid of cellulite requires consistent scrubbing and cool weather gives us enough time to smooth this cellulite away before we breakout skirts and swim suits for summer.
Tip #4. Stock Up on Body Moisturizers and Lip Balms. Body and lip moisturizers will keep our skin healthy, smooth and soft. Cooler temperatures come with flaky and dry skin because we loose so much moisture. The Acure Organics ultra-hydrating body lotion is great for dry and normal skin. It is made with natural and organic ingredients, including cacao butter. Our lips can get cracked and dry during fall; they also require a lot more moisturizing during cooler weather. My favorite natural or organic lip balms packs are: Burt's Bees- Superfruit lip balms, Beauty by Earth - Vanilla beans and honey lip balms, Henné Organics - Luxury Lip Balm. All those lip balms are so moisturizing; they keep my lips soft for hours.
Tip#5. Stay Hydrate - This is So Important! Beautiful skin also comes from what we eat and drink. Some of the skin moisture comes from the water we drink. It is critical to dry plenty of water if we want a glowing and healthy skin. Keep water by your side at all time. I usually drink a full glass of water as soon as I wake up in the morning. I also have water at my desk.
Fall will bring cooler temperatures that dry our skin; by following these five tips, we will have a great looking skin during fall.

More on Tip #1. Treatment oils will add additional protective layer to your skin. Indie Lee Moisturizing oil and Bee Naturals are great organic treatment oils that mix well with other products.
Indie Lee Moisturizing oil works great for dry and sensitive skin. This treatment oil is made with a blend of lavender and chamomile to soothe and deeply hydrate skin. You can also use this oil as a night oil treatment.
Bee Naturals is a oil-free moisturizer that is excellent for combination, oily, or acne-prone skin. It is made with witch hazel extract, honey, and tea tree oil. It nourishes, softens, and moisturizes the skin without clogging the pores.
More on Tip #2. Use Toners to Boost Skin Hydration We should use alcohol-free toners to avoid drying the skin during fall.
How to Use Toners? After cleansing, wipe in your toners, and immediately apply your moisturizer to lock in the moisture. This will lock in moisture in the skin.
More on Tip #3. Get Your Scrub On. Exfoliating your skin promotes silky and smooth skin. I suggest exfoliating from head to toe once or twice a week; exfoliating will remove old tired, flaky, and dull skin cells and promote new plumper skin cells. It helps to reduce breakouts but releasing oils that are trapped in pores.
More on Tip #4. Stock Up on Body Moisturizers and Lip Balms. Apply body moisturizers right after your shower; they will hydrate your skin even more. Our skin pores are more open after showering; moisturizers penetrate skin easily to create protective barrier against skin moisture loss.
More on Tip#5. Stay Hydrate - This is So Important! “Without adequate water intake, skin appears duller, and wrinkles and pores more prominent.” That may be because water plumps up the skin, causing wrinkles and pores to, more or less, get filled in. What’s more, a variety of structures in the skin that support collagen require water to work effectively, says Julius Few, M.D., director of The Few Institute and clinical professor of plastic surgery at the University of Chicago. Bonus: When skin is hydrated, plump, and elastic, it’s less likely to crack and let in external particles that can cause irritations and blemishes.
