Fall Skincare Routine
As fall settles in and the days get shorter and chillier, it’s no wonder we all want to lean into what makes us feel cozy and comfortable. Oversized sweaters, hot apple cider, and other comforts of the season all help you feel nurtured and snug as the leaves and the temperature are both falling. But did you know that your skincare routine also needs extra nurturing in the fall? Between time outside picking pumpkins and relaxing on hayrides and time indoors with the heat on to chase away the chill, your skin could use a little TLC … and a little CBD. Read on for some of our top tips for glowing fall skin.
Make a fall-themed face mask
DIY masks can be a fun, easy way to nourish your skin as the weather is changing, and adding an autumnal twist can give your skin an added boost of benefits. Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year, but you probably haven’t considered incorporating them into your skincare routine. A pumpkin face mask isn’t just a way to achieve your ultimate fall aesthetic; it’s also great for your skin.
Pumpkin is full of antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which can help with skin’s elasticity and tone, and the enzymes found in pumpkin act as a great exfoliator. In addition, zinc and potassium, both found in pumpkin, can help with the redness and irritation associated with acne.
Try this recipe for a simple pumpkin mask you can do at home:
- 2 tbsp pureed pumpkin (Make sure you’re using pure pumpkin and not pie filling!)
- 1 tbsp plain yogurt
- 1 tsp raw honey
Mix all ingredients together and apply to your face in an even layer. Leave on 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse well and follow with moisturizer.
Try a gentle scrub
Dead surface skin cells can prevent skin from efficiently absorbing moisture and make your skin look dull and feel rough. A gentle scrub can remove dead skin cells, leaving refreshed, renewed skin. Try mixing baking soda with EQ’s Nourishing Body Oil to form a thin paste, then massage into your skin using light pressure. Rinse well and follow with moisturizer. The non-comedogenic oils in Nourishing Body Oil will hydrate and soften, and the baking soda will help slough away dull skin.
Great skin is so much more than skincare, and making sure your skin is hydrated is an important step to soft, glowing skin. It’s a good idea to drink plenty of water to keep your body’s systems functioning at their best, which can, in turn, help your skin stay healthy. Our Drink Drops are a delicious way to up your water intake and an instant way to refresh during a busy day.
Hydration is important to your skin in other ways, too. When the heat kicks on in your home, the moisture starts disappearing from the air, which can leave your skin dry, cracked, and itchy. Using a humidifier to introduce moisture back in the air can help your skin stay supple and hydrated. Also try adjusting your shower temperature to something a little cooler. Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, making it that much more difficult to maintain skin’s moisture in dry, cool air.
