Refresh your skin
You want to start the fall season with skin that is refreshed. This means that you need to get rid of that summer residue on your skin. At the beginning of the season, have one deep-cleansing facial done so you start the fall season with a smooth, polished face. You can either do this yourself at home with a really great deep cleaning clay mask or get it done professionally at a salon.

Hydrate your skin
The best way to hydrate your skin is from the inside out and the way to accomplish this is by drinking lots of water. Have a bottle of water or two with you throughout the day. Can’t stand plain water? Throw a little lemon or lime in it! If it is chilly outside and you want something warm, herbal tea is also great for hydrating your skin. By hydrating your skin, it will take on a healthy glow in no time at all.
Toss the soap
While soap may be the ideal choice for scrubbing up after a beach day, soap is also known for leaving skin dry. The last thing you want in the fall and winter is to have dry skin. So, instead of soap, reach for a hydrating body wash. We’re big fans of Aveeno because it’s super gentle on sensitive skin.
Protect your lips
You want to be sure that your lips are moisturized before the cold winter weather arrives. To achieve this, use a lip balm that is non-petroleum-based, to ensure your lips won’t be dry or cracked in the coming months. Get yourself a 5-pack of Eos! We all love those things, but we all lost those things like crazy!
Invest in hand cream
Hands are one of the parts on the body that start to become dry during fall. The best way to tackle this is to prevent it. Use a hand cream to moisturize your hands, leaving them soft and smooth throughout the colder months. Yes to Coconut is one of my favorites because it smells great, doesn’t cost a fortune and works wonderfully.
Use a humidifier
When the air turns colder, it also becomes drier. By using a humidifier, you are putting much-needed moisture back into the air. This moisture is needed to keep your skin soft and supple instead of being dry and cracked. Go with a cool mist humidifier. If you want to make your room smell great too, get one that also doubles as an aromatherapy diffuser!
These autumn skin care tips will not only help keep your skin looking great all throughout the fall, but they’ll set the right foundation for the colder months to come.

It’s important to keep your skin hydrated during the fall. I normally use hand creams, lotions, and lip balms.
One of the best things I ever did was stop using soap. It’s horrible on skin!
I have dry skin already and making sure to stay away from any soaps is such a good idea. I exfoliate this time of the year on my face and use a very good heavy cream to get rid of dryness.
I can already feel the dehydration i my skin. I love using facial masks this time of year for that reason http://www.parentinghealthy.com/
Such a nice way to keep skin healthy, I think this is perfect too to fall season.
Hand cream (and foot cream) were essentials for me in the harsh winter weather. I remember it well. 😉
I was just noticing this morning how dry my skin has become since Fall hit. I need to follow your tips and get my skin back to normal!
I moisturize all winter long! My skin gets so dry, so I literally NEED it.
These are all great ways to keep our skin hydrated. The cold weather is so harsh on the skin and we must never forget to use moisturize. Chapped lips is not a very pleasant experience so I always have lip balm with me everywhere I go.
Great tips, I agree drinking a lot of water really helps clean up the skin. Aveeno is a really great cleanser for the face and skin. I also like proactive products too.
Great tips! My skin is already starting to get dry and flaky 🙁
I have horrible skin, i think it may be oily because I have a lot of acne.
I use coconut oil on my skin throughout the winter. After cleansing, smooth some on while still in the shower, a little rinse and pat skin dry. It really helps.
Lips is my main problem, it is so nice that I saw it in this post. Thank you so much for sharing.
My son has the worst cracked lips during the winter, even here in Florida. The air is just so much drier. I’ll have to try eos.
I use Eos and I like it a lot. I usually keep one hidden in each room of the house.
We all definitely need to change our skincare with the seasons–great tip!
My skin’s far from gorgeous during the cold season. That’s why I invest in a good moisturizer.
These past few weeks my skin gets dry and i think because of the fall season. I need to moisturize my skin.
Love this! You definitely reminded me to stop using soap and go shop for some Aveeno. Thank you!
Yes, this is the time when I need to use a good hand cream as my hands get so dry – plus I suffer from eczema!
These are really great tips! I love a good hand cream and some nice lip balm to keep in my purse.
This will really come in handy. Thanks for sharing these tips. Useful indeed!
Sometimes I wish I had the problem of dry skin. My skin is oily, and it stays that way even in the winter. My lips do get a little dry, so I live for chapstick.
Thank you so much for sharing us your knowledge, I have my skin problem when autumn season is coming.
Protecting my lips is definitely something I need to do, they get so dry and sore this time of year! Great tips 🙂
My husband has severe problems with dry skin this time of year! Thanks for the tips!
Thanks for these tips! Bookmarked for later reference, I already started a regime but, this is awesome!
