Change is the only constant, said Haraclitus.
While these wise words hold true for life in general, beauty geeks like us swear it too. With the changing seasons, changing up your beauty essentials and regimes is an absolute must. In this post, we give you some handy fall beauty tips and products, that will keep your skin soft and supple through the cold and dry months.
The best way to combat dry skin is to massage your body with oil for 5-10 minutes before stepping into the shower. Not only will this take care of any itching, but also make your skin soft and supple.

Use a nourishing body lotion with emollients like shea butter or humectants like glycerin while your skin is damp. This will ensure that if any natural oils of the body were stripped due to the soap used, the moisture levels of the skin are maintained by slathering on a lotion.

If your skin is going white and flaky, opt for a rich body butter for that extra hydration. Make sure you use it on your arms, legs and heels as well as rough areas like elbows and knees. You can even do this step at night and wake up to prettier skin!

Many harsh soaps tend to strip the natural oils of the skin, thereby disturbing the pH balance of your skin. And given that the skin is drier than usual during the colder months, you must choose your body wash carefully. Go for one that is hydrating and with ingredients like cocoa butter, coconut milk and oils too.

Dead skin and dryness is not a good combination, ladies. The best way to tackle this is to use a body scrub to slough off all the dead skin, and then moisturise your skin properly. This way, what you will be left with is buffed and shiny skin that’s oh-so-soft. Now wouldn’t you like that?

Dry, wrinkled hands are a common sight during autumn and winter time. Keep that at bay by having handy a rich and hydrating hand cream. Toss a tube in your bag and use is every few hours for baby soft skin all-year round.

While floral fragrances set the mood during spring, the fall season calls for, bolder, more musky notes in your perfume. Look for floral notes of tuberose, sambac, jasmine paired with tonka beans and vanilla. Good Girl by Carolina Herrera is one we absolutely love for the colder months of the year.
