As the chillier fall air starts to set in, you may start to notice your skin is feeling dryer and your lips a little more chapped. Our beauty routines can’t be the same year round as different temperatures and levels of humidity affect the way our skin will feel.
This fall we recommend trying these 3 tips so that your skin stays hydrated and glowing! The first step in getting that radiating skin is to exfoliate! Before you moisturize, use a hydrating exfoliator to remove all dirt and imperfections on the skin. Secondly, make the switch to a heavier, denser lotion to hydrate your face and body. The same lightweight lotions that can be used over the summer may not do the trick anymore. Lastly, keep your lips hydrated by applying a lip serum nightly. If you want to really give your lips a thorough beauty treatment, you can make an at home scrub to exfoliate them using sugar and honey! Trying these three tips will be sure to keep your skin happy during the colder weather.
With so many natural oils in the market all offering different benefits, how do you know which one is for you? If you’re looking for a natural remedy that helps with skin, hair and health, castor oil might be what you’re looking for. Castor oil is a vegetable oil that has been extracted by pressing the seeds of the Ricinus communis plant. Because it is a natural anti-inflammatory, castor oil can be used to treat inflamed skin, to battle blemishes and redness, as well as minimizing signs of aging. Beyond skin treatments, castor oil is great for promoting hair growth, treating dry scalp and conditioning the hair so you can have those shiny, strong locks you’ve always dreamt of. As if castor oil doesn’t already offer enough benefits, it can also improve your health. A leading health advantage castor oil offers is that it is a great natural laxative. Lastly, it also can boost immunity and be used as a disinfectant.
