It’s hard to believe that it is already time to think about autumn, isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but my summer went by too fast. As cooler days and evenings blow in, it’s the perfect time to revamp your daily organic skin care routine so your skin is protected and nourished all fall.
Autumn is a time of transition for all of nature, including the nature of the human body and skin. Outside, trees shake their withered leaves loose, grass dies and cooler air moves in. Everything moves into a rest mode.
Our bodies are the same way. As the world becomes painted in tones of autumn, it is correlated to the colors buried in the lower end of the visible spectrum. This suggest a lower vibration and a desire to rest and rejuvenate. Nature pulls her roots back into the ground and our skin pulls the circulation from the outer layers and down into the body, leaving our skin vulnerable to the elements. Because the skin has less oxygen, it becomes flaky and dry, pale and colder. Our skin loses oxygen and fat. Add in central heat and drier air indoors as well as pollution and our skin loses even more moisture. But how should we treat our skin to get the best possible result? Dr. Spiezia has some wonderful ideas about an autumn skin care routine that is also an organic skin care routine.
Hydration is important all year long. In the heat of the summer, we need plenty of cool water to help us cool down and stay hydrated. In the cooler months, we still need hydration, but it’s time for some warmth. Herbal teas, including things like cinnamon, ginger, clove, pepper, vanilla are soothing to your body and your skin. Find seasonal berries like cranberries, rosehip and bilberry to make teas. Hot water with honey and lemon is another healing choice, as are vegetable soups. Drinking plenty of these liquids will replenish your antioxidants and Vitamin C levels.
Dr. Spiezia likes to share the following recipe for a therapeutic tea: Start with 2 cups of cold water. Add a dried apricot, fig or date, the skin of an unwaxed organic lemon, an organic apple, cut in fours (include the seeds) a clove bud, half a stick of cinnamon and a slice of ginger. Cover and bring to a boil and steep for 15 minutes. Strain and drink. You may add a little honey if you would like some sweetness.
Increase the moisture in the air by using a humidifier in colder, drier months. Eucalyptus essential oil can be added to the water for an excellent decongestant.
Supplements can do wonders to help you stay healthy and keep your skin at its best. Consider adding things like algae, Omega 3, Vitamins C and E and 6 EFA, essential fatty acids found in flax or hemp seed oils. These supplements will provide antioxidants and increase your cell metabolism.
It’s important to use a skin care routine that is oil based in order to keep your skin moisturized. Water based products can actually dry out your skin, but organic oil based skin care is exceptionally soothing and moisturizing for your skin. Oils will build up the protective outer layer of skin and help prevent evaporation of moisture.
