Fall Skin Issues ( https://www.allure.com/story/fall-skin-tips )

Fall is considered by many to be one of the most prettiest times of year. You can literally smell the pumpkin spice as soon as the calendar changes to September. The weather begins to cool, the leaves begin to change and the air begins to smell of all the fall spices. Most of us begin to unpack our favorite sweaters and boots, and the home décor definitely gets a facelift. Unfortunately, it’s also a time of the year when our skin begins to change (yet again) for the season.

Problems sometimes pop up at multiple times and with different symptoms each time. Any change in weather and temperature can cause issues with our skin; especially if we are unprepared for these changes. The best thing we can do to help our skin transition smoothly into the fall season is ensure that our skincare routine will also change. Below we've listed five skin problems that often happen in the fall, and what you can do about them:

Dry skin is more common with colder temperatures, especially if we turn on the heater in our office or home and dry out the air in these places.  Fortunately, dry skin can usually be handled quite easily by using thicker moisturizers.  Try lathering in one of our hand crafted body butters. They are specifically formulated for dry skin and that can be applied several times a day.

If you suffer from even a mild case of eczema, you are probably aware that cooler fall temperatures can cause your eczema to flare.  Some may find that thicker moisturizers help with this, but it’s always important to speak with your dermatologist to find out how best to treat this condition.

Seborrheic dermatitis also known as dandruff usually appears on the scalp. Did you know that in addition to this, it can also appear in your eyebrows and even on your face? While specialized shampoos, stress management and nutritional changes can help with seborrheic dermatitis, it is important to consult with a dermatologist to find out what treatment will work best for you.

Rosacea can flare when an individual moves back and forth between cooler outdoor temperatures and warmer indoor temperatures. The UV protection in sunscreen can help to control rosacea. Our Golden Body Elixir also has SPF protection up to level 15 and acts as a great face serum under your normal skincare routine. It also has anti-inflammatory and many other skin soothing properties. 

Keratosis pilaris also known as chicken skin is harmless and not usually itchy or uncomfortable. It can show up as patches of raised skin on your arms. It usually appears more frequently when you wear more clothing, as occurs in the fall. Wearing loose, breathable fabrics and exfoliating regularly with our body scrub can help.

No one likes to deal with skin problems, but with the right care they can be minimized or even eliminated. Fortunately for you, Lexurious Skin Care carries most of the products you need to help combat these issues  Good luck and happy fall y'all!
