Fall isn’t just about cute scarves and boots. The transition to cooler weather means that it’s time for more than just a wardrobe change; it’s time for a skincare update too.
As the seasons change, the state of our skin also changes, and as the weather transitions, it’s important to take charge of our skin and prepare it for cold winds and temperatures. After summer, where a hot sun and chlorine pools prevail, it’s especially important to use the fall to restore our skin and prepare it for the harsher winter ahead.
Most people know that cold temperatures can severely dry out your skin. What many don’t realize, however, is that refuge isn’t always sought indoors—forced air heating can have an equally drying effect on the skin.
To help your skin make the transition as smoothly as possible, make sure to keep the following tips in mind for combating the effects of the cold weather.
- Apples, cranberries, and pomegranates are full of antioxidants to help fight free radicals.
- Avocados and sweet potatoes are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and natural oils to deeply moisturize.
- Clementines help eliminate acne-causing bacteria.
- Pumpkin is a natural gentle exfoliant that helps promote cell renewal.
