The weather is changing, and so is our skin! The transition to cooler weather is always one that needs attention. It’s time to make way for some extra time in our daily routine for some skin TLC.
Harsh weather can take its toll on our bodies—and with hot showers and cozy nights becoming more and more appealing, our skin sets alarm bells ringing. Heat causes the skin to dry out rapidly—so we need products that repair lost moisture.
Exfoliating scrubs can help to cleanse dead skin cells and make way for an intense body moisturizer that can stay put. Just apply in a circular motion, paying particular attention to rough areas like elbows and knees. Rinse off using warm water rather than hot, as the best way to close pores is with cold if you’re feeling brave!
Towel dry your skin in a patting motion and then apply a body butter or intense hydration moisturizer—products containing vitamin E and shea butter are ideal. Moisturizing daily is the best way to avoid cellulite and improve uneven lumps and bumps. Hand and foot creams should be applied at least once a week for optimum smoothness—just use in the evenings while watching your favorite TV show and let them soak in well before bed.

From striking sunrays to bitter winds, our skin is arguably the most vulnerable when it comes to facing the elements. It needs constant protection and cleansing to keep out chemicals we don’t even realize are in the air—and red noses are something we don’t want trending this season!
Take care to cleanse and tone thoroughly—micellar water is huge right now. Follow up with a moisturizer that contains Aloe Vera—it’s like drinking a big glass of water with your face!

HYDRATED INSIDE OUT
The biggest rule for maintaining the moisture not just through products is also through natural resources. Water is an integral part of daily life. Get through the day in the best possible way by drinking 6 to 8 cups of water—whether that is on its own or through juice or smoothies. When exercising, it’s vital to increase your fluid intake as sweating is also a cause for hydration loss, and yes, that means before, during and after exercise!
Vitamins and supplements are another way to ensure a glowing complexion—the best thing? It’s 5 seconds of your time and a long-lasting, healthy result! Just take one every morning with your breakfast, and you’re ready to go!
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to banish dry skin. -The Editors at BeautyPress.com
