Shorter, colder nights and falling leaves all signify that Autumn has officially arrived. During the season of transition we reluctantly put away our shorts and summer dresses and start to layer up with sweaters and jackets. Clothes can protect our bodies, however this is the time when our skin needs attention and protection from the elements too.
Here at Organic Surge we are passionate about helping you Live Life Better, so here are a few quick natural skin and health care tips to keep you looking and feeling your best during the colder months:
1. HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE
Outdoor cold spells can leave skin left feeling dry and tight. Make sure to moisturise twice daily with a suitable skincare for your skin type.
2. DON’T OVER CLEANSE
Do not over-wash your face and opt for a natural cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils.
3. TREAT YOUR FEET
Just because you feet are hiding in boots doesn’t mean they should be forgotten, so moisturise those tootsies too!
4. INVEST IN A RICH HAND CREAM
This is the time of year when hands are in need of a rich cream, so invest in a natural hand cream that contains nourishing ingredients such as aloe vera, shea and cocoa butters.
5. AVOID EXCESSIVELY HOT SHOWERS
Although they feel great, especially after being out and about in the cold, they remove essential surface oils in the skin and dry it out quite easily.
6. USE A HYDRATING SHOWER OR BATH GEL
Fruity shower gels are a nice treat during the summer, but be aware of products that dry out your skin when the dry cold weather comes in. Use a shower or bath gel that is soap-free as well as hydrating.
7. EAT A HEALTHY DIET
Eating a balanced diet doesn’t necessarily mean you always have to eat healthy foods, but it’s important to ensure the majority of your diet is comprised of fresh fruits and vegetables (especially dark green leafy vegetables), and nuts (like almonds and walnuts). Healthy eating makes you feel good and is great for the skin too!
Physical exercise gets the blood pumping and keeps your mind and body fit. It also has a positive effect on skin by improving your skin’s elasticity and gives your skin a vibrant glow.
9. DE STRESS
Combat day-to-day stress by taking some time for yourself to do something you enjoy. By learning ways to reduce your stress levels, you will be better equipped to deal with future stressful situations and feel happier.
10. GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Stick to a sleep schedule, don’t use electrical equipment before going to bed and create a comfortable environment that is ideal for sleeping.
