The elements of each season can be really harsh on our bodies and our skin if we don't take the proper precautions to take care of ourselves.

But what about our skin, what can we do to protect it from the fall and winter months? Luckily we have Brittainy from BrittsBeautyBag here today to share with us some great **skin tips **and ways we can prep it for fall and winter...

"If you are anything like me, then you probably are not looking forward to the upcoming seasonal switch (I’m a summer baby) but let’s face it…it’s going to happen so let’s get prepared! Here are 3 ways to prep your skin for the transition from Summer to Fall/Winter...
1. Make Sure Your Skin Stays MOISTURIZED!
Our skin is mostly made of water and oils & in the winter, skin typically tends to lack water more than oil. So, to replenish the water, try to find a moisturizer that is water based & oil free. You want to make sure that you have good balance of water and oil, so using a product that isn’t oil free could end up leaving your skin too oily which can cause unwanted breakouts.
2. Keep a CLEAN Face!
Make sure you are washing your face 2x daily, before bed & in the morning (and using just water won’t cut it)! If you typically wash your face with a gel cleanser, consider switching to a cream cleanser for the fall and winter months (Cetaphil Cleanser $10 to $12 local drug store or Amazon.com). Cream based cleaners tend to be a little more moisturizing than gel, which is key for those winter months.
3. Beat the SUN!
Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen isn’t just made for the months of May- August! SPF is crucial to your beauty regiment and should be worn everyday. To keep it simple, find a moisturizer that has SPF built in (nothing less than SPF 15). Using a product daily, that contains SPF, keeps your skin fresh and vibrant longer by reducing the wrinkling process, the appearance of sun-spots, & the evil “C” word…Cancer!"
