Autumn Skin Care
My favourite month is almost over! With September the temperatures drop, the days get shorter and your skin seeks for more attention. It is important to adjust your skincare to the season. You have to observe the needs of your skin. The following tips and tricks are some basic ones and actually just a kind reminder. They may work for the majority. However, you have to try it out to see whether you feel comfortable with it or not.
During summer we automatically drink more due to high temperatures. Mostly those drinks serve as refreshment. As soon as the days get colder we forget to hydrate our body because we don’t need to cool them down anymore. However, hydration is probably the most important part of skincare. So grab a cup of tea and make sure to support your skin by its development. ! Remember: Water is the best drink you can have!
Having talked about the hydration from within, I also need to mention the outside. As the air gets drier it is necessary to moisturise your skin, nails and hair. You can increase the use of your everyday products or may even get some other hydrating products. However, pure oils are in my opinion the best supporters. Coconut oil, rosehip oil, tea tree oil and many other oils come with sum-less benefits and are a cheap and sustainable alternative. Anyhow make sure to moisturize your skin regularly.
Hand and Nails
In winter it may be too late! We often forget to moisturize our hands and cuticles during autumn and suddenly in winter, you have bleeding skin cracks. Then it may become very painful and hard to get rid of. So always take extra care of your hands! And I know it is sometimes very uneasy to work on your laptop or phone, right after applying hand creme. Make sure to buy a fast absorbing creme or use an absorbing oil like rosehip oil. Rosehip oil comes with many benefits and has a pleasing scent.
It is a well-known problem that with autumn there come dry and chapped lips. Take a tablespoon of honey and mix it with sugar and a few drops of lemon juice. Apply that paste on your lips and gently exfoliate them. Same as it is with the skin on the rest of your body, it is important to apply a moisturiser after exfoliating. For best results on your lips look for ingredients like petrolatum, beeswax or shea butter which will prevent and repair chapping.
