Pete Seeger said it best: To everything (turn, turn, turn), there is a season (turn, turn, turn), and a time to every purpose, under heaven. And right now is the time to acclimatize your skin care.
As summer wanes giving way to autumn, your daily routines must adjust to the changes in the weather. Depending on the climate in which you live, you may have to forgo lightweight summer togs, donning warmer, more protective clothing instead. As the air conditioner goes into hibernation; the furnace revs up. And those grilled burgers, barbecues, and other fare may be replaced by healthier, heartier meals.
So, too, with your skin care. You should still protect your skin from overexposure to the sun - that's a year-round job, no matter where you live. But the body scrubs and other products used to cope with oily skin from the summer heat and humidity wont help you deal with dry skin resulting from the cooler, drier air of autumn.
Using a cleansing oil can keep your skin fresh, clean, and fully hydrated.
Argan oil, extracted from Moroccan argan trees, has high levels of vitamin E and antioxidants that are an oasis of vitality for dry, parched skin and damaged hair.
Rich in emollients, avocado oil can provide exquisite relief to flaky, itchy skin.
If your skin is particularly sensitive, or if you suffer with eczema, you'll find the use of cold-pressed coconut oil, with its 12-carbon fatty acids, to be a balm of comfort and healing. It can also strengthen hair follicles, and make your mane the main attraction again.
Plagued with dermatitis? Soothe your red, itchy, inflamed skin with a daily dose of flaxseed oil. Its an invaluable resource both topically, as a moisturizer; and internally as a part of a heart-healthy diet.
Adopt a daily regimen of moisturizing your skin with one of these life-giving oils right after your shower to seal in the wholesome goodness. Your skin will thank you for it.
