The human body changes periodically, naturally following the changing of the seasons and taking on specific characteristics for each of them. Upon returning from summer holidays, with the lowering of temperatures and less exposure to sunlight, the skin takes on a different color and the more tanned areas of the face may present new freckles and sun spots. Like the skin, the hair also “hibernates”, and more hair loss is quite frequent than in other periods . What we can do to protect the skin in the fall

What happens to our skin in the fall
When temperatures drop, blood pressure also naturally drops. This results in a lower supply of blood (and oxygen) to the various areas of the body. The lower oxygenation causes a natural weakening of the skin and hair : the complexion is more dull, the dermis less hydrated and more prone to damage. The human body naturally enters a phase of rest, in which the vital energy is lowered, as well as its defenses.

Risk factors for the skin: face and hands in the foreground.
There are natural elements that can negatively affect the health of the skin. First of all, sudden changes in temperature (very common in the autumn months) can cause skin stress which often results in redness and irritation of the skin. The lack of hydration and the lowering of natural defenses facilitate cracking in the most fragile areas of the skin , such as those of the face.
Especially if affected by flu and cold, the external areas of the airways, such as the nose and lips, are more prone to cracking. Drinking plenty of water is essential to keep the airways hydrated. In this way, annoying irritations and ailments are avoided. Try massaging the most delicate parts of the face with natural creams thatthey allow to deeply hydrate the dermis, avoiding cracking, weakening, for a healthier and more lively complexion.
The first cold can also cause cracking of the skin of the hands. Low temperatures make the dermis more fragile and dry. Keep your hands protected and use natural products that keep the skin hydrated . For example, almond oil is useful for dry and irritated skin, while avocado oil gives elasticity and nutrition to the skin .
The fundamental element for the health of the skin remains Vitamin C: essential for the formation of collagen, the natural lime of the body’s tissues and especially of the skin. Taking good amounts of vitamin C results in brighter, healthier and more resilient skin . Autumn is the season of oranges, one of the fruits with the highest concentration of this precious vitamin: for breakfast, do not give up a centrifuge with seasonal fruit or a good juice!

The importance of light for the skin
If you avoid the hottest hours, sunlight can help improve the health of our skin. In fact, sunlight stimulates blood circulation and the natural oxygenation of tissues and is the best source of vitamin D for the body, which is essential in fixing calcium in the bones. 30 minutes a day are enough to benefit from the good properties of sunlight.
