Unlike the rest of the country, it’s just now starting to feel like fall in Georgia. And every now and then, we will have an outlier of a day and it will get up to 90 or so… #gross. But my skin has been through the ringer with the ups and downs of the weather. It’s confusing! One day I’m wearing jeans a flannel and the next day I’m wearing a tank and flip flops. But as we round the corner and head towards the end of October, I’m hopeful the hot weather is somewhat behind us.

But my skin hasn’t been happy with the bipolar weather. It’s been extremely dry and itchy and I’ve found that I have to take some extra steps in the colder months to help prevent it.

Here are 5 ways to avoid dry and itchy skin this fall:

  1. Shower less. I know, this sounds disgusting. But hear me out! The less you shower, the more natural oils your body will retain. Which means your skin won’t dry out as quickly as it will if you shower everyday.
  2. Exfoliate. Don’t exfoliate everyday, but every other week is good for your skin. This will get off all of the dead skin and allow the skin underneath to breathe and shine.
  3. Avoid hot showers. Of course a hot shower feels super good in the cold months, but it’s not so good for your skin. Hot water strips your skin of oils and like we said in #1, we’re trying to keep our oils intact. This doesn’t mean you need to take a cold shower but aim for lukewarm if you can stand it. If not, make it a quick one!
  4. Use a moisturizing lotion. Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer is the perfect fall moisturizer. It contains micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly and 2x the moisturization to heal dry skin. It’s a lifesaver! It also sprays on easily and dries quickly so I don’t have to take time to apply it. Which is why most people skip moisturizing… it takes too long! Apply within minutes of getting out of the shower to lock in moisture
  5. Use a humidifier. The air is super dry in the cold months which in turn dries out your skin. Running a humidifier helps add moisture to the air and keep your skin from drying out.




By implementing these simple steps into your daily routine, you’ll be doing wonders for your skin. Did you know your skin is your body’s largest organ? It certainly deserves some extra special treatment then right? Yes, it sure does! Now go get that body moisturized!
