Fall Skin Care

Although I am SO happy that it is finally cooling off, the change in weather also means my skin has been so dry lately! Here are some tips for keeping your skin looking great as the seasons change:

  • Don’t fall asleep with your makeup on! Not only will it clog your pores, but it can also cause bacteria to grow on your pillows.
  • If your skin is already dry, avoid drinking too much caffeine. Caffeine makes skin more dry and will make fine lines and wrinkles look worse.
  • Wash your face with lukewarm water. Hot water strips the top layer of skin (drying it out), and both hot and cold water can cause capillaries to break.
  • Even though it is not as hot, don’t forget to drink water! Good hydration is one of the best things you can do for your skin.
  • Don’t exfoliate skin more than once a week. Over-exfoliating removes necessary oils that keep skin moist.
  • There is typically an abundance sugar-containing foods available around the holidays, but unfortunately over-indulging may break down collagen and cause sagging skin.
  • Keep using sunscreen all year long, not just in the summer!
  • Try this recipe for a homemade pumpkin face mask: Combine 1 cup of canned pumpkin mashed with an egg yolk and a few tablespoons of buttermilk. Then smooth the mixture onto your face and neck, letting sit for 30 minutes before rinsing. Via
  • Don’t wash your face too much. Over cleansing will strip skin of oils and can result in redness and rashes along with dry skin.
