Life is all about balance. And skin health is no exception. To maintain moisture and stay hydrated, skin needs healthy levels of both water and oil. Can’t get enough lotions, creams, and moisturizers, no matter how much you slather on? Dehydration may be the culprit. That said, dry skin types aren’t the only sufferers—oily complexions can lack hydration, too. In fact, sufficient water levels help cells maintain moisture, which harmonies skin by balancing oil production. So ditch the drought and say, “bye bye dry!”
October brings shifts in weather, fewer hours of daylight, along with other seasonal changes. And, at the end of the month, Halloween gives us the opportunity to alter who we are for a day. What a difference a mask makes! As we settle into fall and the trees exfoliate their summer leaves, similarly, we should prepare our skin through exfoliation and hydration. Sumbody’s organic face masks have the power to transform us and magnify what is already within.
The change of seasons affects us in so many ways, big and small. As the long, hot days of summer will give way to autumn, we return to routine schedules, shorter days, and more time spent indoors. The cooler winds bring with it a period of calm before the holiday storm, giving us the chance to restore balance. Autumn allows us to “fall into” ourselves, taking the time to regroup, refresh, and restore in mind, body, and spirit.
Skin is powerful. Its appearance can have profound emotional effects. I’ve heard it all: from teens missing school due to acne to people embarrassed by facial scarring or redness to “I can’t go out without my ‘face’ on.” I understand the stresses and despairs skin issues can cause. But everyone deserves to love the skin they’re in.
