Fall brings many things—whimsical weather, floating leaves, firewood, pumpkin spice, and uh, flakey skin. Yes, some feats of fall are unlike the others or anything us fall enthusiasts hold near and dear about the season. Dry skin can be ironically the most significant damper of fall.

Except it doesn’t have to be. Here is your guide to locking in moisture while the leaves are falling.

Use Moisturizing Cleansers

Choose facial and body cleansers that have an integrated moisturizer. A moisturizing cleanser will help combat any dryness from using hot water, which has a habit of being especially delicious in the fall.

Go Fragrance-Free

Make sure that all products you use from your hand soap to your moisturizer are fragrance-free or naturally scented. Fragrances often have alcohol that can dehydrate your skin even more. Take the time and read the labels to stay away from these.

Use Body Oils

They’re not just for massages. Body oil is a fantastic way to mix up the moisture and replenish hydration in combination with lotions.

Hydrate Properly

Ensure that your daily water intake is up to par. Adequate water intake promotes healthy, hydrated skin. Not to mention, it can help to fight the fall dry spells. If your body is not hydrated, no matter how many oils and lotions you use, your skin will be dry as fall leaves.

Avoid Abrasive Sponges, Scrubs, and Towels

Fall can make us feel like we have tough skin, because well, it can physically become tough. Abrasive tools can irritate skin and counteract efforts to maintain moisture and suppleness.

Moisturize Immediately After Showering

Make a habit out of moisturizing while your skin is still damp to lock in moisture. This also allows your skin to soak in all the benefits from your favorite lotion.

Avoid Long, Hot Showers

As mentioned, hot showers can be especially tempting on cooler, dry-weathered days. Try to limit these types of showers to 5-10 minutes as they can damage the protective layer on your skin.

Use a Humidifier

If you’re experiencing an especially dry climate, a humidifier might be a GR8 option to restore moisture in the air of your living quarters.

Prepping your skin for an anti-fall-downfall is simple and takes minimal effort. Follow these easy to implement steps to keep dry skin at bay this fall.
