Autumn season is all about the splendid sights of mother nature, hot chocolates and the chilly pre-winter winds that make us want to stay in our beds all day!
But while everything about autumnal weather feels just magical and cozy, its effects are totally the opposite for your skin! As the temperature starts dropping in the transitional months of September-October, the air becomes drier and your skin starts to lose its natural moisture that it requires to look healthy.
Don't freak out, with the right skincare routine, you can keep your skin looking at its best - no matter how unforgiving this weather may get! Keep on reading this post and get to know about the top 5 skincare tips for autumn season that we would like you to know.
5 Skincare Tips For Autumn
1. Switch Up Your Moisturizer
The chilly and dry weather of autumn calls for a change in skincare products that you use daily. Those lightweight moisturizers and body lotions that were working just fine for you during the summer and monsoon months may not feel as nourishing for your skin during this phase of the year!
Your skin may feel the need of more robust moisturizing products for that extra layer of protection against the unforgivingly-dry winds.
Try out our revamped DeBelle Skin Moisturizer in Cocoa Blush variant which comes loaded with cocoa extracts. These extracts contain potent antioxidants that help your skin repair itself and make it appear smooth as well as youthful.
To protect your hands and feet, we have the DeBelle Body Lotion for you which is loaded with skin-replenishing ingredients like jojoba oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and other natural goodness. All the products in our skincare range are formulated without the use of parabens and any other harsh chemical commonly found in beauty products!
2. Exfoliate Away The Dead Skin Cells
The cold air during the autumn season can cause dry and dead skin cells build-up on your skin, making your skin look patchy, uneven and dull! This is when skin exfoliating products can come to your rescue. Regular exfoliation of the skin is as important during autumn as it is during any other season. It opens up your facial pores and gets rid of all that dirt and dead skin cells build up on your skin. This step also allows your skin to grow new and healthier skin cells!3. Use A Humidifier
If you are one of those people who believe that humidifiers are useful for only those with throat or sinus related issues, then you are in for a surprise!
Aside from providing you health-related benefits, a humidifier can also help your skin stay hydrated by retaining moisture in the indoor air. An indoor humidity level of 30 to 40% is said to be the best for maintaining healthy and well-balanced skin. So if you have a humidifier already, make sure to adjust its settings to suit the upcoming season. And if you don't have one, we have just given you a good reason to buy it ASAP!
4. Try Out Exciting DIY Face Packs With These Seasonal Fruits!
Every season in India has its scrumptious seasonal fruits that we all love to devour on!
You can raid your autumn-fruit bowl to make skin revitalizing DIY face masks at home with these two seasonal fruits!
Pomegranate Face Mask
In most parts of India, you may find pomegranate (aka the fruit of paradise) all year round. But in certain parts, it is only available during the autumn and winter months. This ruby-red fruit contains vitamins, anthocyanins, and tannins in high levels. These nutrients work in tandem to give your skin a healthy boost and make it well-nourished as well as acne free! Here is a simple yet thoroughly moisturizing DIY face mask that you can try with pomegranate during this season!
You will need:
- Half a cup of Pomegranate Seeds (grind them to make a smooth paste)
- 2-3 spoons of Fresh Yoghurt
These two ingredients are more than enough to get the perfect skin you wish for! Keep this revitalizing pomegranate and yoghurt face mask on your skin for about 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off. After this step, you can also use pomegranate juice as a skin toner to obtain additional benefits out of this seasonal fruit!
Kiwi Face Mask
Kiwifruit, simply known as kiwi, is a tangy fruit which is available in tons of varieties these days! According to an article by livestrong.com, kiwis contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Lycopene in large quantities that help protect your skin from the inside out. This zesty fruit can slow down the aging process of your skin while moisturizing your skin to keep it firm.
Take a look at this DIY Kiwi face mask recipe for youthful and glowing skin!
You will need:
- Kiwi Pulp
- 1 tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel
Scoop out the pulp of 1 kiwi and mix it up with aloe vera gel. Apply a thick layer of this mixture onto your face and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it off to reveal a refreshed, supple and youthful skin.5. Give Extra Care To Your Hands
The skin on your hands is extremely skin, which is why it gets affected the most when the temperature drops in autumn and winter months!
To prevent your hands from getting dry, nourish them with our revamped skin moisturizers that work great as hand creams. Aside from that, we also suggest using lukewarm water to wash your hands instead of using hot water. Hot water wreaks havoc on your skin by stripping your skin off of its natural oils and making it dry!
