Fall is one of the most romantic seasons of the year. It is also the time of the year when you need to take additional care of your skin to prevent it from getting dry and flaky. Not only will dry skin look unappealing it also will cause a lot of pain if you do not take care of it. When you are preparing your skin care regime you also think beyond your face.
Most individuals will take care of the skin on their face, hands and legs; however one needs to pay attention to the skin on all parts on their body. You also need to pay special attention to your lips. If you are concerned about how to take care of your skin this fall then you need not worry for we have a few handy tips that will help you out.
As the fall winds start to blow one generally tends to have hot baths; this must be avoided. Though a hot bath or shower seems appealing it also strips the natural oils from your skin thereby making the skin dry and flaky. Instead of a hot bath one must take a warm bath. A warm bath will help to clean your skin without causing too much damage. Add some almond oil to your bath water in order to pamper your skin. If you have dry skin then you will need to bathe in milk once a week during fall and winter. Exfoliate your skin 2 to 3 times a week in order to get rid of the dead skin cells that build up on the surface of your skin.
In fall you must also pay attention to the type of body lotion you use on your skin. Avoid using lotions as they are thinner and do not have the required amount of oils in them to protect your skin. A thick cream may offer your skin more protection and will prevent dry skin and flaky skin. Massage a rich amount of cream into your skin immediately after a bath; this is the best time as the pores on your skin are open and they will absorb the moisture from the cream instantly.
Use lip balms that contain vitamin E on your lips 4 to 5 times a day in order to protect your lips from getting chapped. You could also use petroleum jelly on your lips at night. When you are in the shower you must run your fingers on your lips gently or use a toothbrush on your lips to exfoliate the dead skin cells. If you use lipstick daily then investing in one that has vitamins and minerals in them will prove to be beneficial to your lips in fall.
Take care of your skin during the fall season to have gorgeous glowing skin throughout the season and through winter too.
