Embrace Autumn’s Beauty: 

Your Guide to Healthy, Glowing Skin

By Omayra La Bella

It is not just the leaves that change with the welcoming of the autumn season; your skin does, too. While the autumn weather may encourage outdoor activities, your skin keeps less moisture because of the cooler, drier air. The crisp air and wind that comes with the autumn season can leave your skin feeling dry, which means it is likely to be more sensitive than normal. For me personally I see signs of irritation, like redness or a splotchy complexion. You may even notice your skin is not feeling its best, as it may appear dull or have a few rough patches of dryness. It is not a good look, and it is certainly not comfortable to deal with. Throughout this, your skin is doing its best to stay hydrated. But when there is less moisture in the air and harsher conditions, it becomes more of a challenge. Key symptoms of what I refer to as “Autumn Skin,” include dryness, dull and sallow skin tone, flaking and irritation, as well as the flare-up of chronic conditions.

While there is no single solution, I can help you to protect your skin, as I do mine from the cooling weather, by adjusting my skincare routine. I recommend using gentle cleansers (INNATA’s – Cucumber Daily Cleanser), using exfoliators to remove dead skin (INNATA’s – Exfoliating Face Scrub) and by moisturizing (INNATA’s – Hydrating Moisturizer) and never forget to hydrate around your eyes (INNATA’s – Cucumber Herbal Eye Gel). The idea is to protect the skin barrier from breaking down due to temperature changes.

While you should get into the habit of moisturizing your skin morning and night no matter the season, it is even more important to do so as the temperature cools. Moisturizing is a crucial step in supporting your skin’s healthy cells and to protect it from irritation and breakouts. Those who moisturize faithfully like me are much more likely to have beautiful complexions. By moisturizing, you reduce your chances of any skin problems arising. Facial moisturizers help balance your skin’s complexion and prevent acne breakouts. Moisturizing is not just for women — it is an important habit for men as well, to incorporate into their daily routine. 

Making sure your skin cells are well hydrated will help to prevent breakouts and ensure beautiful skin in the future. Since moisturizers are meant to soak into the skin and not wash off, it is one of the easiest steps in my skincare regime. Many of the best facial moisturizers have vitamins and other beneficial ingredients, which is a bonus for your skin. Taking care of your skin is crucial when it comes to self-love and using moisturizers to keep your skin healthy is important for any skincare routine.

So next time you step out of the shower and prepare for your busy day, do yourself a favor and grab and use INNATA – Inspired by Omayra La Bella, natural skincare products. I highly recommend them as they have been working for me for the past several years on making my skin feel and look younger. You can find their complete product line at www.innataskincare.com
