As the fall season inches closer and closer, so does the cooler weather! It’s always fun to wear more layers and sip on warm pumpkin spice lattes, but many people struggle to keep their skin feeling and looking its best when the weather cools down. Because cold air lacks moisture, we have to pay extra attention to our skincare routine. Here are some quick and easy tips to start incorporating as the temperature drops to keep your skin radiant.
Tip #1 – Eat Antioxidant Fruits and Vegetables
Antioxidants help keep your skin healthy by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. It just so happens that many antioxidants are in season right now! Some of our favorites you can start incorporating into your diet are cranberries, blueberries, pumpkin, pomegranate and squash. This is the most effective way to protect your skin from drying out through eating!
Tip #2 – Go Easy on the Heat
In fall and winter you may be accustomed to raising the thermostat or taking long, hot showers. In these cases, the heat will actually dry out the air around you making it harder to combat itchy, flaky skin. Warm-up using blankets and layers and try taking warm showers instead of steamy hot ones. You can also use a humidifier in your home to add moisture to the air.
Tip #3 – Don’t Use Harsh Soaps and Cleansers
Some harsh deodorants and soaps ranging from face washes to exfoliators will break your skins natural barrier of moisture. The next time you’re at the store, opt for a natural, milder product that will enhance and moisturize your skin instead of breaking it down. Himalaya offers balancing face washes and body bars that will moisturize the skin and protect it from becoming dry throughout the day.
Himalaya’s face washes are soap-free and made from natural ingredients to nurture the body’s biggest organ, your skin. Fight dry skin this fall with natural face washes from Himalaya.
