Keats ode to the season of fall speaks of ripeness and apples and the goodness of nature’s seasonal bounty that fall brings along with it. Nature showcases its best before the cold, dry, winter, and it’s this nature’s bounty that does wonders for our skin – right before the winter skin woes. It’s the perfect time to luxuriate in a homemade spa! Peek into your pantry to pamper yourself from head to toe. Here are 3 simple DIY home spas to revel in!
The summer winds down, the weather get cooler, and as the leaves slowly start turning – so do you! Those strappy, summery, floral dresses get back into the closet and the light knits, smart coats, cardigans and sweaters come out. Let’s not forget those boots too!
Likewise, your skin’s changing with the weather too. A sweaty, greasy face gives way to a drier skin texture, thanks to dipping temperatures, internal heating and changes in humidity. A total turnover in the seasonal eats also makes a difference!
It may seem counter intuitive – all of that frozen white stuff is a form of water, right? – but winter can actually be more drying and harder on your skin than summer. During the winter months most of the moisture in the air is tied up in solid forms of precipitation. Cold, dry conditions in combination with harsh winds can wreak havoc on your skin.
