Autumn/Winter Skin Care

Summer is officially over and the autumn/winter season is upon us, which means you have to revise your skin care regimen. You want to aide your skin in adjusting to the change in season, and that means taking care of your skin both inside and out. Remember, what you put into your body will eventually show through your skin.

Be sure to drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated. Just because the weather is a little cooler doesn’t mean your body doesn’t require the same amount of hydration. Dehydrated skin looks dry, tired and is prone to more wrinkling.

Moisturizing your skin is just as important as hydrating the skin from the inside. The best time to moisturize your skin is right after a bath or a shower. The skin absorbs some of the water from the bath and is ready to have that moisture sealed in. Use a natural oil or butter such as virgin coconut oil or shea butter for overall moisture.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential for good looking skin and overall body health. During the summer we normally get a lot of vitamin D from sunlight but as the days grow shorter and you’re indoors a lot more than you are outdoors, it’s important to keep adequate levels of vitamin D in your body. You can do this by taking a vitamin supplement or eating fruits and vegetables that are enriched in vitamin D.

So this Autumn/Winter season make sure to take care of your skin by keeping it hydrated and moisturized.
