With the dryness, cold winds, and fluctuating temperatures, our skin needs extra love and care. Luckily, nature has gifted us with an incredible ingredient – shea butter – that can work wonders for our skin during this season. It is always a Good Good idea to explore the benefits, tips, and tricks of incorporating shea butter into your fall skincare routine. Get ready to fall in love with your skin all over again!
1. The Importance of Exfoliation for a Good Good Start
Exfoliation is an essential step in any skin care routine, as it helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover. During the fall, exfoliating becomes even more important as the dry air can cause an accumulation of dead skin cells, leading to a dull complexion and uneven texture.
Opt for a gentle exfoliator that contains shea butter like That Good Good Shea Foaming Shea Sugar Scrub to ensure that your skin stays moisturized throughout the process. Apply a small amount of the exfoliator to damp skin and gently massage it in using circular motions. For best results, use 3x a week in the bath or shower to exfoliate the body. Our Foaming Shea Sugar Scrub uses organic cane sugar to make it a gentle, non-irritating cleansing agent safe for all skin conditions. However, be mindful not to over-exfoliate, as it can disrupt your skin's natural barrier. Opt for a gentle exfoliator with natural ingredients, such as shea butter, which will gently slough away dead skin cells while providing essential hydration. Pay special attention to areas that are prone to dryness, such as the cheeks and forehead. Rinse thoroughly and pat your skin dry.
2. Amp Up Your Moisturizer Game
Derived from the nuts of the shea tree, Shea oil offers numerous benefits for nourishing and hydrating the skin in the fall season. Fall weather often brings a drop in humidity, causing our skin to lose moisture and become dehydrated. Shea oil serves as a fantastic moisturizer due to its high content of essential fatty acids. These fatty acids, including oleic, stearic, and linoleic acids, deeply nourish and hydrate the skin, helping to restore its natural moisture balance. Regular application of shea oil creates a protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and preventing transepidermal water loss. The unrefined shea in our Shea Oils is naturally non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores, so you won’t have to worry about it making your skin too oily. Our Shea Oil works through a spray-on application process, making it a very easy and a great moisturizer to protect and rejuvenate the body.
3. Deep Hydration
As the cool breeze starts to take over, our skin craves extra hydration, moisture and nourishment. Incorporating our shea-infused skincare products into your skincare routine can work wonders in replenishing and maintaining the moisture balance of your skin.
Hydration is key during the fall months, and a lightweight moisturizer might not be enough to combat dryness. Look for moisturizers enriched with shea butter like our Shea Body Butter to lock in moisture and provide intense hydration. Another tip would be to look for shea based products with natural ingredients to avoid any harsh additives that may irritate your skin. A good option would be to apply the Shea Body Butter moisturizer to your body after cleansing and exfoliating to seal in moisture and create a protective barrier against the harsh elements of fall. Our Shea Body Butter are ultra-moisturizing and perfect for dry or cracked skin as they are whipped with coconut oil and jojoba oil providing extra hydration. The emollient properties of shea butter will create a protective layer on your skin, shielding it from harsh environmental conditions.
4. Don't Forget the SPF
Even though the summer is over, it doesn't mean you should neglect sun protection. Harmful UV rays can still damage your skin, even during the fall months.
Shea butter contains a natural SPF of around 7, providing a mild sun protection factor that can help shield your skin from the sun's harmful rays. While not a substitute for a dedicated sunscreen, using shea butter infused products can provide an extra layer of protection, particularly on days with milder sun exposure. The antioxidants present in shea butter also help neutralize free radicals caused by sun exposure, reducing the risk of sun damage and premature aging. By incorporating shea butter infused products into your fall skincare routine, you can continue to protect your skin from the sun while enjoying its numerous benefits.
Even though the summer sun may be less intense, UV rays are still present during fall. Protect your skin from harmful sun damage by incorporating a broad-spectrum sunscreen into your daily routine. Look for sunscreens that contain shea butter, as it will offer additional moisturizing benefits while keeping your skin safe from UV rays.
