The summer has come and gone and that means time for dropping temperatures and changing seasons. While the fall might be beautiful with the changing leaves and first hints of winter, your skin might not enjoy the change as much as your eyes. The changing temperatures can suck all of the moisture out of your skin so make sure you take these steps to combat any damage that may come your way.
1. Shower in Warm Water
Hot water actually strips the skin of moisture. Due to this, change your shower situation for fall a bit. Everyone loves to bathe in a hot bath on a cold fall day, but try to limit your time in the shower to less then 10 minutes. Bring the temperature down to warm and with a limited shower time you will be taking crucial steps to helping your body retain moisture.
2. Daily Moisturizer
You still need to keep using that daily moisturizer from summer. Just because the temperatures have dipped a bit does not mean that the harmful UV rays have gone anywhere... Make sure the moisturizer you use is formulated to hydrate and restore moisture to the skin. Also make sure you choose one with an SPF30 boost to protect against aging and skin damage due to the sun.

3. Dealing with Chapped Lips
As the temperature drops, your lips will start to show signs of drying again. Chapped lips are uncomfortable and can have a drastic negative effect on your appearance if they start pealing. Additionally no one wants to be kissed by someone with chapped lips. Choose a natural lip balm with flavor and boosted with SPF. The flavor will make if "fun" to use and the SPF boost will protect some of the thinnest exposed skin on your body. Game Day's is made with natural beeswax and natural mint flavoring then boosted with SPF15. Buy Now.
4. Drink more Water
Because the cold dehydrates you faster, skip the caffeinated drinks such as soda and coffee which can have a diuretic effect on the body and rob it of its moisture. Drink more water and juice to maintain fluids in your body.
