It is fall again. The leaves are falling and the humidity is dropping. Soon winter will be upon us and we all know what that means. As the temperature drops lower and lower, our skin scrambles to adjust to the dryness. I get the total disappointment of having a dry skin. We all get it once in a while especially during the winter where there is barely enough humidity in the air and it all feels so ashy and cold. Our skin reacts to these conditions as it is as expected. But who says that nothing can be done about it?
You can turn things around and transform that dryness into a glorious glow. There are quite a number of excellent ways to keep your skin fresh with that youthful grace all day long. And I’m not talking about synthetic products that may or may not break the bank. Nah. I’m talking about natural tips – easy, accessible methods that you can try for yourself. I will be sharing some of them with you below. Step into fall with some simple things that you can add to your skincare routine.
Masks are excellent ways to rejuvenate the skin’s pores and restore their freshness. However, dermatologists confirm that it is preferably advisable to opt for masks composed of natural organic ingredients such as fruits, plant extracts and essential vitamins. These ingredients help brighten your skin regardless of the time of the year. They are great for moisture and they leave your skin feeling supple and clog-free.
Coconut oil is a good go-to for glowing skin. It honestly works like magic and it works for every kind of skin type – from dry to oily. Natural oils such as carrot seed oil, turmeric, lemongrass, lavender and frankincense are among the best oils to make your skin glow. The benefits of these oils seem endless, from suppressing wrinkles, reducing fine lines, to soothing the skin and calming inflammation. Essential oils are indeed a blessing to the skin.
Crystal Face Rollers
Crystal Face Rollers are stones that are basically used for massaging the surface of the skin. They help releasing stresses and tension that might have been built up under the skin. It’s believed that these rollers can help combat wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. You can combine these face rollers with face serum. Rolling one of these across the face after applying a face serum opens up the skin pores.
Yes, you read that right! Sleep!
Life is not so perfect and sometimes stress affects our productivity. When that happens, we tend to forget to relax our mind, body and soul. Did you know getting enough sleep can help offset the toll that stress takes on our body? As ordinary as it seems, sleeping up to eight hours a day can reduce stress and leave your skin feeling healthier. It is basically the cheapest way possible to help your skin, and the least regarded. It’ll also help your mind radiate, too.
Bonus points for thoroughly removing your makeup before going to bed at night. Let that skin breathe, girl!
I kind of hibernate in the winter. I spend most of my time indoors drinking my green tea and taking care of my skin and my mind. During fall, I drink plenty of water to prevent the skin from looking flaky and dull. Water flushes the body and takes out the toxins. Staying hydrated is a good way to maintain soft and glowing skin. Drink plenty of coconut water, green tea, carrot juice and almond milk for the best results.
You should note that these tips can be practiced all year round. Try working them into your beauty routine to keep that natural glow going from season to season.
