Fall Skincare Tips
Fall is my favorite time of year. The air is crisp and the mountains are a bevy of color. A time for new beginnings. Let’s begin with our top 5 fall skincare tips to start a new season a new beginning with organic skincare.
Sun Protection is a must, even more so when the air is drier in fall and winter. UV rays can still hit your skin through the cloudy chilly days. According to the American Cancer Society melanoma skin cancer is the most common cancer and rates have risen in the past 30 years. Current estimates are the one in 5 adults will have skin cancer in their lifetime. I use Badger sunscreen it protects from both UVA and UVB rays as well as being organic and water resistant. And suntegrity.
Avoid Chemicals in your skincare routine that goes for your cleansing method as well. Cleansing oil is the best route to keep your skin supple and moisturized. Always read your ingredients a good source to look by brand is the EWG skin deep guide. The less products you use on your skin, the less irritated your skin will become thus reducing the signs of aging.
Moisturize your skin
Your skin is your largest organ on your body and in order to stay replenished and glowing, your need to trap moisture in to avoid fine lines and remain healthy. Our best seller rose geranium face moisturizer is perfect for those with rosacea and dryness. And less is more, a small amount goes a long way. I double layer with face and neck elixir and rose geranium when it is colder out. For all over body care I love my nourishing body oil and body oil.
Avoid using hot water
Avoid using hot water on your skin as it will stripe your skin of oils; use tepid water. Limit the time you spend in the shower, you will be helping your skin and the environment. Cool water is also best for your hair and reduces scalp irritations. According to WebMD hot water can exacerbate skin challenges such as psoriasis. Opt for gentle cleanser such as a cleansing oil. Oil dissolves oil so a cleansing oil is perfect for oily as well as dry skin. And a cleansing oil does not stripe your skin of the natural oils.
Reduce Stress as it plays a major role in our overall wellbeing that is reflected in our health and skin. We know the rules, eat well, exercise and get plenty of rest but it seems this time of year it is harder. Some of our customers swear by using our lavender hand cream at saying it soothes their hands and the aroma is like a lullaby to them. And of course my favorite is my signature flourish roll on perfume.
