| Thankfully, fall season is all about change! Just as the leaves continue to change color and fall from their branches, it is a good idea to 'FALL OUT' of your old skincare habits and make subtle changes to help you look and feel your best as the days grow shorter.
Our skin tends to secrets a lower quanitity of natural oils during cooler seasons and you are bound to experience some dryness. Turning over and replenishing your skin's natural moisture will keep it soft and help prevent chapping.
There are plenty of seasonal foods that you can incorporate into your daily skincare routine. And although they are all quite hardy and delicious, I'm talking about feeding your skin, not your stomach!
Favorite Fall Ingredient is...... PUMPKIN!
"Thats right!" Not only is it high in vitamin A, C, zinc and antioxidants but practically all varieties of the fruit (indeed pumpkin is a fruit) have wonderful moisturizing properties.
Here are a couple of my favorite pumpkin skincare secrets and recipes:
Pumpkin Face Mask
1 Tbs raw (unheated) honey 2 Tbs raw pumpkin, mashed in a food processor/blender Leave on for 10 minutes and remove.
