Fall brings more than just back-to-school madness and pumpkin spice everything. With the changing weather, it’s important to maintain and update your skincare routine to reflect your inner glow.
We want you and your skin to stay healthy and happy. Read on for OHA’s fall skincare tips:
- Stay hydrated
This one seems like a summer tip, but as the temperature drops, your skin gets drier – prevent this by staying hydrated from the inside out. Drink lots of water, and quench your skin with a Hydrating Mist, mixed with a serum. Keeping your skin hydrated also boosts your immune system to keep you healthier going into the cold and flu season.
- Exfoliate your face and body
Flaky skin from summer fun and dropping temperatures can be remedied with a moisturizing exfoliant. Use a good loofah and some Facial Sugar Scrub (great all over your body!) to slough off dead skin cells and keep your skin glowing.
- Use sun protection
Another one that seems summery, but the sun’s rays are intense year-round. It’s important not to let up on UV protection even though summer is over – clouds can even magnify UV rays. Our Natural Sun Protection Lotion protects you all year.
- Switch to a richer face moisturizer
Protect skin from drier air and low temperatures by using a richer moisturizer to replenish your skin. Rich doesn’t have to mean heavy, either: try the Advanced Moisture Treatment for nourishing essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants that absorb beautifully into your skin.
- Protect your lips
We definitely are plagued by dry, flaky lips when the season changes. Even though you want to lick your lips constantly, that’s not a good idea – it dries them out even more! But if you have to lick your lips, make them taste delicious with Chocolate & Rose Lip Butter – so moisturizing, you won’t have to lick any more (though you’ll want to – yum!).
The end of summer is always a little sad for us, but endings always signify opportunity and new beginnings. Savor the changing light, colorful leaves, and coming cozy winter months, and be good to yourself.
