Fall Skincare Refresher, Dos and Donts

When fall comes, we often feel a need to cocoon a little more. The available hours of sunlight begin to diminish and we may feel physically and maybe even emotionally different. Maybe not. If so, know it’s totally natural. Fall embraces COZY, so cozy up with your favorite cardigan and some delicious soup to nourish and warm your senses.

It’s wise to adjust your skincare routine a little too. It’s a good time to refresh, hit reset, and make sure you don’t make some skincare mistakes.

Here are your fall skincare dos and don’ts. Reset.

Do

Moisturize a little more. Or even go a step further and opt for a heavier, richer moisturizer as your skin will probably be a little drier. Our Spa-Size Coconut Oil Beauty Intensive Cream will do the trick. Looking for firmer skin? Use Retinol Advanced Firming Cream at night.

Don’t

Indulge in a hot bath or a long shower. When fall comes you want to avoid drying out your skin more and this can happen when you take the lengthy bath or long, hot shower.

Don’t

Forget to keep applying the sunscreen. Keep your skin protected all fall and into the winter. The sun can still damage skin. Skin Cancer is a serious life-threatening illness.

Do

Get enough sleep. One of the best and easiest things you can do for your health is get enough rest. You will feel rejuvenated inside and out. You probably already feel a bit more tired, so listen to your body and give it the rest it needs and deserves.

Don’t

Sleep with your makeup on. Your skin renews itself when you sleep and leaving your makeup on can result in dryer and more blemished skin. And with fall, your skin will already be dryer. This is an absolute no-no.

Do

Don’t

Eat poorly or not get enough exercise. When you indulge in fast food, junk food, or overeat, it will show in your skin. Maintain holistic health by eating a balanced, nutritious diet. More specifically, warm yourself with tea and soup this fall, promoting balance and comfort as your body stiffens and adjusts to the new season.

Soothe yourself with tea and soup this fall. Relax the senses.

Don't

Forget to enjoy leisure time. Appreciate the gloriousness of COZY. Grab coffee, tea, a blanket an book and get cozy-delicious ASAP. Double-love it. Summer is all about heat and activity. It's time to slow down a little more.

Do

Exfoliate once a week. Be mindful not to over exfoliate your skin! Sure it’s great to wipe away dead skin cells, but you don’t want to strip your skin of cells that are trying to renew, heal, and grow. It’s dry skin that you want to slough off. Stick with once a week so you can give your baby cells time to grow and your skin time to replenish and re-hydrate. Believe it or not, but when you exfoliate you can actually create more wrinkles, scarring and dry skin. Avoid.
