The autumn season is here and with that Top 5 Skin Care Tips for Fall - Modelcomes changing leaves and cooler weather. With temperatures dropping, your skin will certainly be affected. Now is the time to switch up your skin care routine to make sure that you maintain beautiful, radiant skin through the holidays. Below are the 5 simple tips to achieve a glowing complexion on your face and body

1) Moisturize Daily: First and foremost, it is essential to keep your skin moisturized. Colder weather makes skin dry, chapped, and scaly. Continuing to use the same products you were using in the summer just doesn’t work. Summer products are designed for warmer temperatures. Stock up on richer serums and creams. Try products with increased Shea Butter and natural plant derived oils. Keeping skin moisturized is one of the best ways to maintain its beauty and health. Use a good nourishing serum first followed by a deep moisturizing cream.

2) Exfoliate Weekly: In addition to moisturizing, exfoliating is also a good idea during the autumn weather. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells, including summer damage, and is very helpful for dry skin. This in turn makes your skin smoother and gives it a nice glow. What’s more, exfoliated skin absorbs serums and creams better. The ideal way to exfoliate is to use a rich body scrub in the shower, paying special attention to elbows and knees. Just make sure it’s gentle enough. When you are finished, follow up with a good moisturizer. Exfoliate your face and body once or twice a week for great results.

3) Use Sunscreen: Sunscreens aren’t just for the summer! Sunscreen should be used during the fall season as well. Regardless of the time of year, you are exposed to UV rays that can do damage to your skin. A good way to get protection is to use a face moisturizer with SPF. Use sunscreen to keep your skin healthy and radiant all year round.

4) Have a Healthy Diet: Good fuel equals good performance, period. It’s important that what goes into your body (not just the products you apply on the skin) is healthy and nourishing. Maintaining healthy eating habits will help your skin glow and repair itself. Get your daily intake of vitamins and minerals from healthy foods. Fall vegetables are a great way to enjoy delicious and nutritious meals. Pumpkins, carrots and sweet potatoes contain antioxidants along with beta-carotenes, which improve skin’s health, giving you a glowing complexion. We recommend you look into buying a NoutriBullet or similar device to really boost your nutritional intake.

5) Take Care of Your Hands, Feet, and Lips: When applying serums or creams, it is important to remember these parts of your body. In the fall months, hands, feet, and lips are especially prone to getting dry and chapped. You can apply foot or body cream to feet, and keep a bottle of body moisturizer along with lip balm with you. Many balms have good ingredients like aloe and beeswax to help lips stay hydrated. Moisturize from head to toe and your skin will thank you for it.

These are the top ways to ensure you have beautiful, radiant skin this fall season. They are simple and effective tips that you can incorporate into your everyday life. Enjoy the autumn weather and the changing scenery with a good skin care routine that will have you smooth, hydrated and glowing all over.

Happy Fall!
