  • Prepping Skin for Autumn: My Favorite Tips & Recipes

    The transition into autumn brings vibrantly colored leaves, crisp morning air, cozy knit scarves and sweaters, pumpkins and wintery fare, and all things quintessentially fall. It also brings colder temperatures, dry and windy weather, and more time indoors where the heated air is dry and low in humidity. This change in conditions can wreak havoc on our skin, causing it to become unbalanced, dry, flaky, chapped, and may cause acne even for those who usually don't experience breakouts. So, if you've had dry skin recently or acne when you usually don't, then the shift in seasons could be the culprit!

    If you're feeling a little overwhelmed by this or don't know where to start, I wrote this article for you! Here are my favorite skincare tips to help your skin throughout this transition so that it can stay healthy and balanced during the autumn months and beyond!
