How To Keep Your Skin and Body Healthy This Fall and Winter

How to keep your skin and body healthy this Fall and Winter. Everyone has a daily skincare regimen that they follow without fail. Every day, it’s wake up, you’re your face, exfoliate, moisturize—and don’t forget the sunscreen! These are practices that should be followed every day not only for you to be looking your best, but also for your skin to be at its healthiest.

As autumn begins and winter looms on the horizon, taking extreme care of our skin becomes even more important. The harsh and chilly temperatures ahead can do incredible damage to our skin and body, and practicing your already good habits may not be enough to fight the harm it can cause you.

That’s why it’s important to educate yourself on how your skin can look vibrant and beautiful all winter long. Here are a few of our recommended ways to take care of yourself during the cold months ahead:

Freshen Up Your Entire Body From  Head to Toe

No part of your body should be ignored in the cold months ahead—or always, for that matter. But especially as the autumn begins, it’s important to treat your skin right after spending an entire summer in the sunshine, sand, and water.

Restore your hair, skin, and nails and get rid of tired and dull layers to kick off your fall. We recommend treating your hair to a hot oil application, spreading a masque moisturizer on your skin, and treating yourself to a pedicure to remove food calluses.

Never Stop Moisturizing

Summer is the time of year for constant heat and humidity, so naturally, lighter and multipurpose moisturizers are ideal for these stifling conditions. So, when the weather outside is frightful, it’s recommended to have hydrating body lotions to prevent dry skin. Consider investing in rich hair conditions or silicone serums to fight winter frizz. For your face, switch from your summer astringent face wash to a thicker cleansing oil.

Don’t Ditch the Sunscreen

Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean you get to hide your sunscreen. While it’s important to change how you apply sunscreen in fall and winter, it is crucial to remember to, well, not forget it! Focus primarily on your face and neck during the coming months, trade in your SPF 50 for an SPF 15 or 30 instead.

Switch Your Color Palette to Reflect the Season

Now that your face and body is fresh and clean, now it’s time to consider the makeup you put on your face. During cool weather, heavier eye makeup, full coverage foundation, and warm, saturated shades are the way to go.  We are loving shades of espresso, greens, mauves, and even grays.

While the autumn and winter seasons are the most wonderful time of the year, it’s important to remember that following these best practices to make sure your skin and body beautiful and healthy.
