Welcome to October!!! Its time for many things like Halloween (hands down my favorite holiday) but also my next segment of randomize!! YAY. This is the skin,body and health edition:)) Hope you’ll enjoy
So the weather is getting much colder in New York which means for those that normally have dry skin or dermatitis (yes like meee) its time to layer up BUT correctly
Now, just so you know this is what works for me and what I tend to try to avoid when fall and winter are approaching because most times my skin will not cooperate with the weather
I’ll give you some insight on clothes,skin moisturizing and dealing with dry skin tips
First layering on clothing is essential when the cold is approaching so sweaters and long sleeves come right along
You want to avoid fabrics with wool or any itchy material because it will irritate your skin and it will not be nice. Look for shirts and sweaters with cotton or soft material. If you choose to buy stuff online just make sure that the material does not look itchy(if theres fabrics sticking out or if it look rough) but, there is always a risk with online shopping that you don’t get what you want.
With leggings again you want to avoid stuff that are itchy but also thick leggings are not always the best. They trap in the heat and this could make your skin itchy and dry so try to get some light weight leggings shirts, etc that trap in the heat but a still thin. Some great clothes for the cold are in Uniqlo, you can also look at H&m and forever 21 for some basics.
Skin and moisturizing go hand in hand if you have dry skin
If you want avoid dry skin you must moisturize!
With that being said buying a good lotion and oil for your skin is essential and also using the right products while your in the shower!
Personally I hate heavy lotion or pomades for my skin because they are like an extra layer on your skin however, they’re are great for your skin because it’ll lock in the moisture
I usually use Vaseline(yes good old cheap vaseline) in the winter times but for the fall I usually just get a heavier lotion like Nivea or Gold Bonds other favorites of mine are Cetaphil and the pomade of Nivea.
Layering your skin with oil gives you an extra protection for dry skin. You can use any oil but my favorite is avocado oil(yes I use the big bottle that I also cook with)(its a mutli-oil), almond oil and vitamin E oil.
So final thoughts layer your lotions/oil, make sure to get a good heavy brand and buy clothes that are kind to your skin.
Hope you guys have a great day !!
