Tips for Healthier, Beautiful Skin
Fall has arrived, so get ready for turkeys, piles of leaves, and apple picking. Even though summer may be behind us, skin care is more important than ever! After all, November is Healthy Skin Month. So now’s the time for a refresher on the best ways to keep your skin protected throughout the fall.
1. Reassess Your Body Cleanser
In the summer, fruity shower gels are a popular treat, but just be sure that your current favorite isn’t going to dry out your skin when the dry cold weather comes in. You’ll want to find a shower gel that is soap-free as well as hydrating. In the fall and winter, I like to put away the gels and bring out a creamy body wash.
2. Try an 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.
3. Moisturize Every Single Day
I can’t stress this enough; if you want to keep dry skin at bay, 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. Seal in the moisture that’s already been absorbed into your skin.
4. Remember Your Feet
Repeat after me, “I will not let my feet go without proper care this fall and winter”. Say it, and mean it. Your feet are going to be stuck inside your boots and heals for months to come, and if you continue taking care of them and exfoliating them on a regular basis, you’ll have no problem popping back on your sandals when the time comes.
5. Treat Yourself to a Facial! (ask about our “Friends & Facials” special)
Facials are great for rejuvenation and relaxation. Facials will help improve the health and appearance of your skin especially if you get facials on a regular basis; you can’t expect big changes to your skin if you get facials once a year. After a facial your skin will look brighter and healthier. Additionally your skin will feel softer after the facial.
