Fall is a time of year that people crave— leaves start to fall, warm sweaters are brought out from storage, and pumpkins are carved and decorated for everyone to see. And although the fall season comes with much charm and character, it can also wreak havoc on your skin if you don’t know how to properly take care of it. In order to ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out this fall, follow the following tips listed below. From using a moisturizer to wearing sunscreen, these steps will help you have smooth, moisturized skin all year long.
Use a Moisturizer
If you have normal or oily skin and try to avoid using a moisturizer most of the year, switch up this habit and invest in a moisturizer. Moisturizing creams and lotions will help you lock in and seal moisture into your skin so that it doesn’t dry, crack, and even cause premature wrinkles. When looking for a moisturizer, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars. In fact, you can simply get a high quality moisturizer from the drugstore, like Cetaphil.
Drink More Water
Your body is made up primarily of water. And as such, if your body becomes dehydrated then your skin will dry out and become cracked. In order to prevent your body and skin from drying out, make sure that you are drinking enough water throughout the day. As a helpful suggestion, try carrying around a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go— this will be a good reminder for you to drink more water.
Wear a Sunscreen
Many people assume that sunscreen is something that you just have to wear at the pool or beach in order to protect your skin from aging. However, did you know that wearing a sunscreen every day all year long will help your skin to stay moisturized? By acting as a barrier against the sun— the number one agent that will dry your skin out— sunscreen will help to make sure that your skin holds on to its natural moisture all day long.
