It’s fall in Fresno! We dare you not to rejoice. In addition to fall energy savings, it just feels fantastic outside. As the temperatures drop even lower and you spend more time bundled up outdoors, your skin may pay the price. Switching from chilly winds to heater-warmed rooms can leave you with dry, scratchy and itchy skin. Here are a few of our favorite fall tips for silky smooth skin!
A hydrated body will help combat the dull complexions of cold water. Fall is the perfect time to commit to drinking the doctor-recommended amount of water each day. In addition to upping your water intake, try to include healthy Omega-3s in your diet. You can get them naturally in walnuts and salmon or take supplements.
Don’t Skip Sunscreen
The sun is no less damaging in the fall. If you’re going to spending extra time outdoors, make sure to protect your skin with a lightweight sunscreen.
Find the Right Moisturizers
We hate to add to your grocery list, but one lotion will not cut it during the fall. For extra-dry arms and legs, opt for a thick moisturizer. Your face will need special attention if you don’t want to clog your pores or sport a greasy face all day. Check out these 20 Facial Moisturizers Under $20 and find the right one for you!
Use Your Heater Sparingly
It doesn’t matter what type of heater you have in your home. When you switch it on, it’s going to suck the moisture out of the air (and your skin). To save your skin and avoid a sky-high energy bill, set your thermostat as close to the outside temperature as bearable.
