If you find your skin feeling tight as the fall weather sets in, you’re not alone. If you’re looking for a natural skin care regimen to help you stay on top of dry, cracking skin, you’re in the right place!
While summer is all about soaking up (and protecting yourself) from the sun, fall is about cozying up by the fire and preparing yourself for the winter. Humid summer nights turn into colder, dryer, fall days. Even worse, once the heat clicks on, it can feel like it’s sucking the moisture from your skin.
So how can you change up your routine to protect your skin from these seasonal changes? Our natural skin care products are made in Canada, which means they’re ready made to handle whatever the Canadian seasons can throw at your skin.
Soothe and Protect Those Lips
Did you know the skin on your lips is almost four times thinner than the rest of your skin? That’s what makes them extra prone to drying and cracking. Because they’re almost constantly exposed to the elements, your lips take the brunt of the crisp fall air.
Natural lip balm is one of our most popular products in our line of natural skin care products. They protect and soothe dry, chapped lips and easily slip into a pocket to take on a hike in the woods or to the rink to watch a game. They also come in three great varieties – classic unscented, grapefruit and mint.
Our Unscented Lip Balm is perfect for people who have sensitive skin. While some companies add chemicals to their products to mask odors and make them unscented, our all-natural Unscented Lip Balm has no added fragrance or flavouring. It’s made from beeswax, organic shea butter and hydrating oils, all of which work to nourish your dry, chapped lips and lock in moisture. It absorbs smoothly and never feels waxy or greasy. Want to add a little flavour? Try our Grapefruit Lip Balm with organic coconut oil and pink grapefruit essential oil, or our Mint Lip Balm with a blend of three essential oils: eucalyptus, peppermint and tea tree.
If you’re having trouble deciding which of our natural lip balms you want to try, no problem! Choose our handy Lip Balm Bundle. You can select one of each variety or mix and match the ones you like best! This also makes a great stocking stuffer!
Save your Scalp
When we think of skin care, remember that your scalp is skin too! In the fall and winter, your scalp can become dry and flaky. Our pH-balanced, eco-friendly Shampoo Bars and Conditioning Bars could be the perfect way to soothe your delicate scalp.
The gentle, textured coconut-based cleaners in our Shampoo Bars create a luxurious lather, while removing dirt and excess oil from your hair while plant-based moisturizers help soften hair and condition your scalp. Our Conditioning Bars, made from coconut oil and other plant-based ingredients attract, and lock-in moisture, providing an extra layer of conditioning to help soothe your scalp.
Our bars are good for your scalp, good for your hair, and GREAT for the planet! Just one of these concentrated shampoo or conditioning bars replaces about 2 to 3 plastic bottles.
THESE PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE IN LIMITED QUANTITIES. You’ll have to pre-order to reserve yours!
Amp up the Moisturizer
If you find your skin getting dry and flaky during the fall, you may need to amp up your moisturizing regime. Especially on your face and hands, which are more exposed to the elements.
If your skin is doing fine, stick with it. That’s of course, using our handy Body Balm Lotion Sticks! These all-on-one body balm lotion bars in a twist-up stick are portable and terrific for your hands, legs and body. They’re packed with natural moisturizers like grapeseed oil, beeswax, organic olive oil and organic shea butter, and come in a variety of scents, including grapefruit, lavender, tea tree, mint, and, of course, our popular unscented stick.
If your skin gets especially dry, you may find you need to call in the heavy weights. Our line of all-natural Ultra-Rich Body Creams might just do the trick! Made with 75% organic shea butter, our ultra-rich body creams are thick. They’re also filled with ingredients that stimulate collagen production, prevent moisture loss and repair skin damage. Sound like a prescription for extra-dry skin care? It is!
When you’re looking for natural skin care, our Body Balm Lotion Sticks and Ultra-Rich Body Creams are the perfect body butter to cure your dry, cracking skin, especially on tough areas like hands and feet.
Soak it In
Fall can be a little dreary, so if you’re in a need of a little pick-me-up, take a soak in a warm bath with luxurious bath salts. Although it seems odd, bath salts are great for adding moisture to dry skin. Soaking in the salt helps moisturize and relieve dry, itchy skin. The minerals in a high-quality salt bath also help detoxify your skin.
Our decadent Duckish Bath Salts take natural skin care to the next level with four kinds of iron-rich salt (dead sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, Epsom salt, and sea salt), plus a hint of sweet almond oil and coconut oils for added moisturizing.
Get your daily helping of H2O
At Duckish, we keep water out of our products to protect the water we drink! Water is important to keep skin hydrated and healthy, so be sure to maintain your water intake throughout the fall.
Another great tip is to avoid long hot showers. Although it might feel good to heat up after a long cold day, prolonged hot water exposure can actually dry your skin.
Your epidermis is showing
So cover it up! Skin that is exposed to the cool fall air dries more quickly, so a simple step like wearing gloves can help protect your hands, and keep the moisture in.
