According to the California Science Center, about 60% of the human body is made up of water. Just like we need water to prevent dehydration, our skins need to be taken care of the same way. Keeping the biggest organ of the human body moisturized, smooth, and looking healthy should be everyone’s priority and incorporate it into the everyday lifestyle. This is especially true, and quickly becomes an exigence, when the seasons begin to change. The days of extremely hot and exhaustingly sunny weather of summer will soon turn into days of cold and dry for the fall. When it comes to treating and nourishing your skin this fall, check out organic, natural skin treatments and creams from Melvita.

When I was in college, I distinctly remember one ill-advised trip to an outdoors activities fair which led to the worst sunburn I’d ever had in my entire life. My nose looked like it was falling off and my shoulders cried out in pain for the remotest of touch.
“Why don’t you put some aloe on that?” My friends winced at me.
I find that there’s an inverse relationship between the temperature outside and how long it takes to get ready in the morning. The warmer the weather gets, the quicker I’m out the door in the morning. I let my hair’s natural wave come out, eschewing time-consuming blow outs. My outfits are much less complicated, with a bright print substituting for the layered intricacies of a cold weather look. And if ever there was a time to feel less self-conscious about freckles showing, now is it.
That’s when a tinted moisturizer is perfect. One easy step to even out skin tone and moisturize. Lavere Natural Anti-Aging Hydro Bronzer has a nice yellow-based tint, and is not a “bronzer” in the traditional sense. I found the color to be light enough to blend with my pale skin, while giving it the sheerest boost and a nice “blurring” of discoloration and unevenness. All the while, organic fruit acids eat away dulling dead skin cells, and hyaluronic acid, organic aloe vera and jojoba oil moisturize and work to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Skin is soft and plumped without being greasy.
Freckles may be cute, but the effects of photoaging (sun damage) aren’t so adorable. But sometimes, life gets in the way, making it difficult to slather on a shot-glass full of sunscreen every time you go out. This editor has been guilty of making a quick run to the grocery store sans sunscreen. And while there is always the dermatologist, let’s face it, we can’t always stand to wait a whole month to get an appointment.
