JK7 Fall Skin Care Blogpost
Crisp air, changing leaves, and shorter days. The progression from summer to autumn is upon us, bringing along with it a season of change: physically, as well as mentally. It’s important to center and prepare ourselves as this transition occurs. Part of this preparation includes the protection of your skin against drastic shifts in the environment.
The Transition from Summer to Fall
Along with the refreshing, invigorating fall temperatures, the drier air arrives and beckons at our doors. The switch from the humid air of summer to the dry, low-humidity levels of autumn can aggravate the skin immensely and even exacerbate current troublesome skin conditions.
Not only is there the sudden drop in humidity levels, but there are also the daily fluctuations in humidity, from the dry, autumn winds to the hot, steamy baths and showers. Add in the constant ebb and flow from heated homes to the chilly outdoors, and it is the perfect combination to dry out and irritate your skin.
All of these varied changes can have a drastic impact on your skin’s barrier, and can even lead to rashes or permanently irritated skin. To properly adjust to the effects the change in season will have on your skin, it is necessary to transition your skin care routine.
How to Prepare for the Transition of Seasons
While we begin to prepare for this changeover between the seasons, the perfect time to swap our skin care routine is when we prepare our winter and fall wardrobe. Exchange your bathing suits for sweaters, and your lighter skin care products for heavier, more moisturizing items. By utilizing a humidifier, you will also allow for additional moisture.
The added humidity will help combat the dryness of the air and prevent your skin from becoming rough or excessively irritated. As you work through this process, taking the time to reflect on this transition is also an important part of embracing the change and feeling present in the moment.
The key point to keep in mind throughout your switching of skin care products is one main concept: hydration. Hydrating and moisturizing properly are of utmost importance when keeping in mind the shift from summer to fall. Here are some skin care tips that will keep your skin radiant, healthy, and enriched throughout the drastic changes of the fall weather.
- Consistently Apply a Moisturizer Throughout the Day
The cool, dry air is lovely for sweaters, candles, and a warm cup of tea, but our skin is not quite as fond of these conditions. Especially during the change from summer to autumn, it is essential to treat our skin with powerful, conditioning treatments and provide as much moisture to it as possible. It is necessary to apply a moisturizer throughout the day to help our skin barrier and to prevent rough, dry skin.
The Beauty Moisturizing Mist – Freshener from JK7® provides a revitalizing, hydrating mist that can be used at any time throughout the day. It’s ideal for the face, neck and decollete and will help revive your senses with the pure, organic fragrance of Rose Oil. Just a few sprays along with some gentle patting into the skin will ensure a smooth, even-toned glow!
- Detox Your Skin to Remove Dead Skin Build-up
A vital and often forgotten step that should be included in the repertoire for fall is a detoxifying treatment. Since the skin is much drier than usual, it will deposit a rough, textured layer of dead skin cells. Not only cells but also toxins and impurities can build up on the skin’s surface.
The combination of organic herbs, like Chamomile, and oils, such as Natural Zeolite Healing Earth, from the Detox Face Mask provide a deeply detoxifying, cleansing, and moisturizing effect. As the build-up of dead skin cells and toxins is gently cleansed, the purified skin will have enhanced blood circulation which leads to increased firmness, elasticity, and overall healthier skin. Extra vitamins and extracts like mangosteen and pomegranate work as antioxidants, creating a well-balanced skin barrier that is protected against even the driest of climates.
- Use a Thicker Moisturizer To Ensure Proper Hydration
The common theme of the fall skin care routine is hydration. This also includes switching your current lighter lotion to something that is more deeply moisturizing. The extra boost provided by swapping to a heavier lotion will pack a more powerful punch to keep your skin from being dehydrated by the cooler air.
A non-oily, highly moisturizing cream is preferred, as well as one that can be used on not just the face, but other parts of the body prone to dryness. The Body Care Lotion from JK7® is perfect for balancing the oil and moisture content of your skin and ensures hydration for an extended period. The lemon and lime scents add an uplifting and refreshing quality while enhancing the skin’s natural beauty and elasticity. Not only a must for your entire body, but the Body Care Lotion is also the perfect companion for your feet and elbows. Massage the lotion on at night and wake up to restored, rehydrated skin.
As the feeling of change vibrates in the air, let us take the time to embrace these moments of transition and honor our bodies and selves the best we can. Let us take a moment to enjoy the crisp air, the change of the leaves, and to help prepare for this season.
Keep these tips in mind as you transition your skin care to be the perfect routine for the months ahead!
