As the sun has set on Summer, your skin is now trying to deal with the season
changes of Fall. Different environment, different foods, change of lifestyle. Nothing
much may bloom in Fall, but pimples and acne may be the exception. Fall does
present its own challenges in fighting acne, or breakouts. In Summer, humidity
would keep the skin hydrated as the air would be moist. But as Fall has hit the
ground running, the outside air is colder and dryer. We spend more time
indoors, where the heating is also dry. Skin may become irritated. Breakouts
and acne may occur. But it does not need to be this way.
When the weather is cooler, hydration is very important. From the
coldness of the outdoors and the dry heat of indoors, the skin requires much
more hydration. Drinking more water is required. So does products that can naturally help the skin from the inside.
AcnEase can restore internal balance that can be disrupted by changes in the
environment and in diet with seasonal change.
As we are in mid-Fall, life may be busy with work, school, college,
sports and family. We may have forgotten to hydrate. AcnEase has a simple solution with moisture skin protection for morning and night.
The intense repair cream is perfect for acne-prone skin to hydrate and protect,
especially during Fall and in the depths of Winter. It contains skin-loving
Vitamin C, E, B3 and Green Tea. Also Astaxanthin, which are from grapes. The
multi-functional moisturizer is perfect for those long nights indoors and the
days outdoors in the cold weather. It is also great in-conjunction with
AcnEase’s skin-loving treatments.
As we approach Fall’s events of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the Winter Holiday
season, we can vouch that food is the centerpiece. Apart from the comfort foods
that may be perfect around the fire but may not be beneficial for the
acne-prone, some foods that are perfect for the skin can be used in many
dishes. A variety of fruits and vegetables offer many nutrients to stay
healthy, and that includes healthy skin.
Pumpkin Seeds, yes from Pumpkins, is a great addition to your Fall diet.
The green seed can be found separately in health shops and supermarkets. They
are full of zinc, which can give the skin a healthy glow. A great choice with
the Thanksgiving turkey. Carrots are a classic choice. A well-rounded vegetable
with beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A by the body. A wholesome
food that can be eaten raw or cooked, with a great healing capacity, thanks to
The purple vegetable of Beetroot is a tasty addition to the Fall diet.
Beetroot is full of vitamins A, B and C, as well as magnesium. The humble
Pomegranate is a powerhouse fruit that is full of antioxidants, is
anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory. Great for skin.
Other great foods for Fall that are terrific for the skin are, Apples, Squash
(Pumpkin), Sweet Potato, Cashews, Almonds, Blueberries, Spinach, Beans, Peas,
Lentils, Turkey, Chicken, Lemons, Limes and Tomatoes. Eggs are great for some
people, and Salmon, which both are high in Omega 3s.
Omega 3s are a type of fat in certain foods that are great to promote
skin smoothness and moisture. Great for the cooler and drier environments Fall
The months of Fall are a time to reflect on the Summer that has been and
the upcoming Winter. The time where coldness ensues, the fire is warming, and
the end of the year events are to be celebrated. It is the time to eat nice
warm stews, roasts and celebrate Fall’s entry into Winter. But the coldness of
Fall can still make the skin brighter. With warming Fall foods, a bounty of
fruits and vegetables, and skin treatments
that can help the skin from its seasonal changes, Fall can be the best time for
smoother and clearer skin.
