Six steps for a skin healthy fall

Six steps for a skin healthy fall

Six things to do to transition from summer towards the cooler months of fall.

  1. You probably have a bit of color from being exposed to the sun on your skin. Too much exfoliating will remove much of that color before it needs to go, so I recommend a clay based cleanser or mask to lightly massage and lift dullness from the surface of your skin. Herbal Cream Cleanser, Rose Mask or the Enzyme Mask are all, excellent for this light cleansing touch.
  2. After cleansing/ light exfoliating it’s time to spritz a witch hazel and herbal based toner on your skin to tone and supplement a healthy skin surface. Queen of Hungary’s Water or our Rose Splash; made from our gardens each year the Rose Splash uses fragrant red roses for their deep color and toning properties. Queen of Hungary’s Water is a cornucopia of herbal extracts and orange flower water.
  3. Moisturize next; you have a variety of choices, cream, facial oil or a single oil. Our creams, Rose & Silk or the Olyvia will provide the skin with both added moisture and oil to keep that moisture in place where it is needed in the top layers of skin. Oils, whether combination facial oil or a single oil need to be applied directly after washing and toning to hold in that moisture.
  4. Lips, if dry rough or cracked can benefit from any of our herbal balms, Calendula if in need of repair, or Rose Lavender for its all round gentle balm protection. Use them for lips, hands, elbows and the neck area for the scent.
  5. Drink water, especially as the weather turns drier and the heat goes on in the months to come. Water will keep our skin hydrated and happy. With adequate water, our whole body functions better and can withstand the challenges of colder weather.
  6. Keep your fat and healthy oil intake up. Throw out all those wrong ideas about low fat diets, your skin and body need fats and oils to stay warm, ward off the effects of cold weather, give you sufficient fuel to get through the day and keep binging on sweets to a minimum. They need to be natural and healthy fats and oils, organic, non processed and straight from Nature.

 Welcome to the next phase of the year!
