As we settle into Fall, our skin often undergoes a few changes due to the cooler air temperature and wind. The colder months can often leave us with relentless dry, cracked skin that seems impossible to get rid of.
Fortunately, there a few very effective ways to combat dry skin and get your face back to its usual bright, glowing condition.
Avoid using hot water, instead opt for mild, warm water when showering or washing your face. Hot, steamy water will further dry out your face and body, leading to itchy irritated skin.
Using hydro-boost products can help enable hydrated, supple skin that may be suffering from dehydration due to the environment, stress, lack of sleep, or poor diet. Neutrogena has a line of excellent hydro-boost products, especially their gel which contains hyaluronic acid. L’Oreal also sells a Hydra Genuis Liquid Moisturizer for normal to dry skin types that is known to work wonders.
Using a hydrating oil or serum before you go to bed is crucial in fighting dry skin throughout the night and leaving your face soft and bright the next morning. You can apply an oil or serum to your entire face, neck, and eyelids. Tarte’s Maracuja Oil is a great hydrating oil that can be mixed with your moisturizer or other nighttime creams.
Face masks are an awesome way to give your skin some of that extra TLC it needs. The Karuna hydrating sheet masks are great for dull, sensitive skin. They are made with a Japanese soybean called natto, that repairs cracked skin and brightens your complexion after just one twenty minute use.
We hope these suggestions help you keep your skin supple and beautiful throughout these cooler seasons.
