Your skin is a creature of habit. It craves consistency and tends to handle change a little less than gracefully. As we move from summer to fall, you may notice your skin acting out (or, throwing a full-on tantrum). Read on to learn how your skin is affected by seasonal changes and how Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm can help.
How Your Skin Is Affected By The Seasons
Summer to fall is a tough transition for your complexion. As temperatures drop, so does humidity - and less moisture in the air means less moisture for your skin. In addition, blustery winds can strip your skin’s moisture barrier, causing dehydration, dullness and discomfort.
Signs your skin is struggling:
- Drier than usual
- Flaky patches
- Tight and itchy
- Lacks radiance
- More prone to sensitivity
Fix Dry Skin With Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm
One of the best ways to tackle the symptoms above is with skin care designed to repair dryness and protect your skin from damage. Eminence Organics Product Support Representative Josie Barton says: “As the seasons change, so does the environment and your skin! It’s important to transition to appropriate products that support your skin’s overall health in a changing climate. For example, if you are going from hot and humid to cold and dry, you will want to keep the skin hydrated and protected. This will ensure the skin doesn’t become dry, sensitive or irritated due to environmental stressors.” Here are three ways Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm can help your skin cope with a changing climate.
A moisturizer packed with essential fatty acids (EFAs) is the hero of your fall skin care routine. EFAs are crucial for cold weather skin care, helping to replenish and retain skin’s moisture. Since your skin is unable to produce most EFAs on its own, these acids need to be either consumed or applied topically. For very dry skin, LNE recommends high-oleic oils like the rosehip and sunflower oils found in Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm. These rich oils help preserve your skin’s lipid barrier, locking in moisture and keeping out drying environmental irritants.
Repairs Dry Skin
As the seasons change, it is common to experience patches of dryness. These typically appear in areas with few sebaceous glands, like the chin and cheeks. Keep parched skin soft and supple by applying Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm as a spot treatment on areas prone to dryness. This ultra-rich balm is infused with a Natural Repair Complex derived from soothing rosehip and healing rosemary to repair dry skin fast and protect it from the drying effects of environmental exposure.
Reduces Redness Due To Dryness
Changes in temperature can also cause your face to become flushed. Dermatologist Gervaise Gerstner tells Vogue: “Redness occurs because our bodies are trying to heat themselves, bringing blood close to the surface of the skin and dilating capillaries.” It is (literally) your skin’s red flag, alerting you to its discomfort. To relieve redness on dry, chapped cheeks, apply skin care that features ingredients like chamomile, rosehip or aloe. Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm is infused with rosehip oil and prickly pear stem extract, both of which improve moisture and help soothe redness due to dryness.
