In the later months of the year comes a change in the weather, which can often lead to dry redhead skin. Combatting dry skin in the fall will help you maintain soft, nourishing skin well into winter when the real dryness kicks in. Here are a few of the best ways to combat dry skin for redheads:

1. Hydrate

Drinking water is the number one way to keep your skin looking and feeling great. Most of us are barely drinking enough water to sustain our body’s health, let alone allow our skin to be glowing and hydrated. As the weather gets colder, increase your water intake for better-looking skin.

2. Exfoliate 

Combat dry skin by getting rid of it. Exfoliating is super important in the colder months to keep skin healthy. Not only does it promote good circulation, it removes dead, dried skin and allows your skincare products to actually soak in your healthy skin that needs hydrating. 

Exfoliating can be done from head to toe with the right products. If you’ve got sensitive skin like most redheads, opt for light exfoliants for the most sensitive parts of your body like your face and neck. Dry brushing is a great way to exfoliate your legs and arm and it will also promote detoxification, improve circulation, reduce the appearance of cellulite, stimulate the lymphatic system, and of course, expose supple, soft skin.

3. Moisturize

Your skin needs moisture from the inside and the outside. Opt for a heavier moisturizer for both your face and body during the fall months, and be sure to focus on areas that can get particularly dry like knees, elbows, feet, and hands. It can also be good to add moisturizing facial oil into your routine to nourish the skin.

Rock it like a Redhead!
