Does Your Natural Skin Care Routine Need A Change?
This time of year always feels like a great time for a fresh start! More so in my opinion than January 1st. I don’t know if it’s the changing of the leaves or the refreshing cool crisp air, but there’s always something about fall that motivates change.
And just as the seasons change, so must our natural skin care routines. You see, each season requires our skin to be nourished in a different way. P.S. If you’re reading this and it’s not fall, check out my My Best Advice for Winter Skincare or 5 Natural Steps to Summer Ready Skin.
You’ve likely heard me say it before, but I’ll say it again;
“It’s essential to nourish our skin seasonally.”
If you’ve been on the cusp of switching to a natural skin care routine, fall might just be the best time for a fresh start! This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience, read the full disclosure policy.

How can you take care of your skin naturally?
It starts by looking at your skin as a whole, not just searching for a magic cream! Developing a natural skin care routine incorporates specific aspects required for healthy skin. And it leaves out cheap and often toxic fillers in typical skin care products. By replacing such fillers with ingredients our skin actually benefits from we can make quite a change!
Create Your Fall Natural Skin Care Routine:
You can decide what you put on your skin! So, choose your ingredients wisely and develop your very own regime for fall. Bring on your favorite fall scents and flavors into a natural skin care routine you’ll love! Who’s says going natural can’t be fun?
Often times an overlooked step in skin care routines, exfoliation is our prep work to priming our skin for moisturizing. Exfoliating sloths away dead skin cells allowing our skin to more readily absorb moisture.
By using an exfoliator like Sweet Caramel Pumpkin Scrub you can keep pores clear and stimulate collagen production while improving the glow of your skin. Be careful not to overdo it, once or twice a week is recommended.
And don’t forget your lips! With the cool air and plentiful outdoor activities in the fall
HYDRATE & DETOX –
When the temperatures begin to cool down and the humidity lifts in the fall our skin can become dry and itchy. The lack of moisture in the air can be compensated with a good bath soak.
Whip up a batch of DIY Pumpkin Spice Bath Tea to ease sore muscles and rejuvenate the skin with real pumpkin seed oil, quinoa, Epsom salts, and nutmeg essential oil. A must for an autumn soak in the tub if you ask me!
Or opt for a detoxing bath combining activated charcoals’ unmatched ability to remove toxins from the body with homemade Harvest Moon Soaking Salts.
The final steps to your fall natural skin routine involves moisturizing from head to toe! First, make sure to always apply a nightly moisturizer to your face. This step helps to balance oil production and prevent dry patches on your face. Look no further than my popular recipe for DIY aloe vera face cream!
When it comes to our lips the best way to keep them moisturized is with natural lip balm. And it’s the easy step of natural skin care routine! Find my recipe for Lemon Chamomile Lip Balm here made with healing chamomile, shea butter, honey, and a combination of other natural ingredients.
Last slather on homemade Pumpkin Lavender Body Butter an intense moisturizer packed full of nutrients for skin. It’s quite the fall luxury if you ask me.
