With the weather cooling down, it’s time to break out your scarves, jackets, fuzzy socks, and your moisturizer. Flaky and dry skin is almost inevitable with the temperatures ranging from 30-40 degrees fahrenheit; and the wind doesn’t knock the leaves off of the trees with ease! It may seem like I am only listing the negatives of fall, but that is far from the truth. Fall can be one of the most beautiful seasons and it’s important to be sure that your skin is ready for the photo opportunities! Here are four moisturizing lotions and face masks that will have your skin ready for that cool fall we all love.
