5 Tips to Help Your Skin Transition From Summer to Fall


Fall is many people’s favorite season, and for good reason: the brisk air and changing colors can be a relief from months of hot temperatures. Fall also brings with it a fun culture entirely of its own (queue Spooky season festivities and pumpkin-spiced everything). It’s a time for cozy sweaters, hot drinks, and settling down from a summer of activity.

But the season comes with a few tradeoffs, like cooling temperatures and a drop in humidity that can wreak havoc on your skin. Not to mention that when the AC gets turned off, the indoor heating gets turned on, which can exacerbate the already dry air. All of this sets up your skin for dryness and irritation that can compound in the coming winter months.

The best thing for your skin is to tackle this dryness head on to keep your skin barrier supple and durable against the dry months to come. Here are some of our top tips to fortify your skin for fall:

Inside-Out Hydration

Hydrated skin is about more than just topical moisturizers. Even though your skin serves as a barrier to the outside world, it is still drawing on nutrients in your diet. So what you put into your body is equally as important as what you put on it.

The best place to start is by drinking enough water. It’s suggested that most women get at least 11.5 cups of water a day. Limiting coffee and alcohol intake can also help you stay hydrated as well, since both are diuretics that may lead to dehydration.

You can also supplement with key nutrients like Biotin Drops to help give your hair, skin, and nails the nourishment that they’re craving. Sometimes referred to as the “beauty vitamin,” this essential B vitamin may help support softer, more vibrant skin.

Double-Down on Moisturizing

When life gets busy, it can be easy to skip your basic routines for the sake of time. But if you want to keep your skin soft and supple come fall, it’s important to stay true to your skincare basics. Moisturizing multiple times a day is a must when colder temperatures arrive. Try adding our Pure Almond Oil or Magnesium Lotion to your routine for some all-over nourishing alternatives to your typical moisturizing creams.

But it’s not just what you put on your skin – it’s also when you apply your moisturizers that makes a difference. Applying moisturizer right after a shower or bath can help lock in moisture to fortify your skin’s barrier.

Don’t Over-Exfoliate

When your skin begins to dry out, it can be tempting to go overboard with exfoliating in an attempt to slough off dead skin. But too much exfoliating can actually damage your skin barrier, making your skin vulnerable and delicate.

Instead of exfoliating daily, we suggest using a gentle exfoliate twice a week. Our Magnesium Body Wash provides nutrients that help nourish your skin while gently exfoliating dead skin cells.

Remember Your Delicate Areas

As the climate starts to get dry, our faces tend to take the brunt of the weather – cold wind can leave us chapped and raw. But it can be easy to forget about your most delicate regions. Changes in weather and routine can throw off delicate areas like the vulva. A pH-balanced wash like our Feminine Wash can help keep things hydrated and balanced down there.

Take the Climate Into Your Own Hands

While you may not be able to control the climate outside, there are some easy things to do in your home that can pay dividends when it comes to your skin health. Adding a humidifier in your bedroom can help counteract the drying effect of your heater and prevent your skin from drying out overnight.

So as the temperatures start to drop, enjoy your hot apple cider without worrying about your skin drying out by taking these easy steps to stay protected.
