Everyone’s favorite season is finally here: fall! With fall comes football, back to school, and of course dry and itchy skin from the cooler weather. When the temperature and humidity drops, your skin will naturally become more dry than when you were soaking up the sun in the summer. Here are some ways to protect your skin from the dry weather, as well as prevent dry skin from happening in the first place!
Exfoliate: Get rid of those dead skin cells as soon as they appear by using an exfoliator once a week. Using a scrub for your body will remove the dry skin, as well as give you a silky smooth finish. A great scrub to try out would be a sugar scrub, they are all natural and don’t have any harsh chemicals that will end up drying your skin out.
Drybrush: Going along the lines of exfoliating, “drybrushing” is an effective way to get in there and really scrub out all those dry skin cells. All you do is get a natural bristle brush and work a scrub into your skin and brush away all the gross dead skin. Not only does it dust away the layer of dry skin sitting on your arms, it also buffs away cellulite and stimulates blood flow within your body. Who would’ve known taking care of your skin externally can also helps your body internally?
Get enough rest: We cannot stress enough how important getting enough sleep is! Your body can’t properly function without rest, so how is your skin expected to be flawless? Your skin tells the world you haven’t been getting your 8 hours, so relax with some lavender oils when you go to bed to get your most restful sleep yet.
Moisturize: There’s no such thing as using too much lotion, especially in the fall. Lotion is made up of fats and oils that keep your skin looking fresh and brand new. Moisturizer works in two ways: it traps the moisture that is already in your skin from escaping, and it also adds moisture back into your skin that may no longer be there. Make sure to always keep a bottle in your purse or car, that way you’ll never forget to put it on.
