Fall into Self-Care: 10 Tips for Looking After Your Skin and Soul This Autumn
The autumnal equinox brings brisk air, falling leaves, and a shift in energy. This transitional time of year provides the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate your self-care routine. Relax, restore, and recharge as the temperatures cool down and the days grow shorter.
Keep reading to discover 10 simple ways to help you mindfully transition your self-care habits to match the cosy vibes of autumn.
1. Adjust your sleep schedule
Adjust your sleep schedule. The earlier sunsets can disrupt our circadian rhythms, making it harder to fall asleep. Combat this by gradually shifting your bedtime earlier in 15-minute increments. To help you drift off, don’t forget to mist your pillow with Eresos' CBD Pillow Mist to promote a sound and restful slumber.
2. Switch up your skincare routine
The drop in humidity calls for more moisturising and gentle exfoliation to prevent dry skin. Massage Eresos' CBD-infused hand & body cream into damp skin post-shower for lasting softness. The added bonus is the moisturising qualities of Cocoa Nut, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera ingredients that give you a natural, nourishing emollient, which will leave your skin soft and intensely moisturised.
3. Pamper your hands
As the temperatures drop, the dry air and blustery winds of autumn can do a number on your hands. Exposure to the elements, coupled with frequent hand-washing, saps moisture from the skin, leading to dryness, cracking, and irritation. Hydrate parched skin by massaging a nourishing hand cream into hands nightly. For added protection against harsh autumn winds, slip on gloves when going outside.
4. Savour warm beverages
Trade in those icy drinks for steamy mugs of matcha, apple cider, or turmeric lattes. Sipping something hot is both comforting and relaxing - and why not add some CBD to your hot drinks for that extra dose of relaxation?
5. Cosy your space
As the temperature drops, a few key home accents can make all the difference. Plush blankets, soft pillows, warm sweater textures, and the glow of Himalayan salt lamps or candles instantly create a snug and cosy vibe.
6. Embrace slow living
Summer's carefree attitude gives way to autumn's introspective energy. Spend more time journaling, meditating, and reflecting during the tranquil autumn season. Don’t forget to practice your gratitudes, and set your intention for the rest of the year.
7. Treat yourself to R&R
Pamper yourself with restorative experiences like massage, spa treatments, or a peaceful soak in an ambient candlelit bath. After an action-packed summer, take time to prioritise calm, comfort, and care.
8. Get moving outside
The crisp autumn air is refreshing for the mind and body. Take your workout outdoors with a brisk walk, run, or bike ride surrounded by the vibrant change of seasons.
9. Eat seasonally
Hearty fall produce like squash, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and apples offer the perfect pick-me-up as the weather cools. Try new autumnal recipes packed with these nutritious ingredients.
10. Unplug and recharge
Make unwinding a priority by limiting screen time in the evenings. Disconnecting from digital devices allows space for presence, reflection, and rejuvenation. Autumn provides the perfect opportunity to devote time to recharging both body and mind after an action-packed summer.
This autumn, make self-care a priority. The changing seasons are a reminder to check in with your mind and body. By incorporating our CBD-enhanced products into your routine, you'll be set up for total relaxation and renewal.
