A crisp autumn chill can be a welcomed presence after a long, hot summer. But with the transition into cooler temperatures, you’ll certainly want to give your skin extra tender loving care. When it comes to fall body care, we love to bring the spa home with a dynamic body scrub and body butter routine. This simple regimen combines replenishing exfoliation with skin-softening hydration for optimal radiance all season long. If you’re seeking out fall skincare tips to keep your body velvety soft, search no further. Here’s how to leverage this easy two-step routine for an effortless autumn glow. 

The Role of Body Scrubs in Fall Skin Care

As the temperatures wind down and the air grows drier, you might notice your skin experiencing some dryness and irritation. Gentle exfoliation can go a long way in helping you reveal soft, supple skin. While you want to buff away dead skin, you should also avoid compromising your skin barrier. Going in once a week with a mild, plant-based body scrub will help you refresh your skin for a lovely complexion.

The Magic of Body Butter in Fall Skin Care

After a revitalizing fall body scrub, nourish your skin’s barrier with a moisturizer. A hydration-locking body moisturizer is crucial during those chilly autumn days when your skin barrier tends to lose water. For the ultimate moisturizing experience, we love smoothing on body butter. 

Experience the luxurious combination aimed at depp moisturization. This exquisite blend merges the efficacious qualities of Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil, and Moringa Oil to deeply penetrate and offer extensive hydration. Additionally, the incorporation of Coffee Oil, abundant in antioxidants, contributes to promoting firmer, and refreshed skin. The outcome is a feeling of smooth, soft, and well-moisturized skin.

Of course, you can use body butter with other fall skincare products such as lotions and body oils. However, you need to follow the correct application order to ensure that everything gets absorbed properly — work your way up to the thickest formula, using lotion, body butter and then body oil. 

Complementary Skin Care: Body Scrubs and Body Butter

Prepare for autumn’s cool, blustery days with light exfoliation and deep hydration. To pamper your skin with a cozy, spa-like experience, there’s no better dynamic duo than a body scrub with body butter. For radiant results, here are our favorite combinations of body scrubs and body butters — you can, of course, mix and match formulas to your liking!

Moisturizing Dry Skin: Detoxifying Sea Salt Body Scrub + Coconut Body Butter

If you’re craving something different from the typical gourmand fall body butter scents, embrace breezy coastal vibes with an iconic sea salt and coconut pairing. Use Desert Essence Detoxifying Sea Salt Body Scrub to buff away rough skin with almond meal and walnut shell powder. After exfoliating your skin, the botanically potent blend of shea butter, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil in this formula leaves you feeling silky soft. Follow up your luxurious bath with Desert Essence Coconut Body Butter to smooth skin texture with hydrating coconut and moringa oils.

Pampering Sensitive Skin: Hydrating Sugar Body Scrub + Shea & Jojoba Body Butter

Indulge in a spa session that’s sweet, nutty and, most importantly, moisturizing. Around autumn, over-exfoliating can be harsh on sensitive skin. Made with sugar crystals and pumice, Desert Essence Hydrating Sugar Body Scrub gently exfoliates and cleanses skin. It’s also brimming with softening oils (think coconut and jojoba oils) that refresh the skin barrier — plus, there’s even chamomile and cucumber infused into it to soothe sensitive skin. For an extra surge of essential fatty acids, smooth a sweet dollop of Desert Essence Shea & Jojoba Body Butter onto freshly exfoliated skin. 

Revitalizing Dull Skin: Nourishing Pink Himalayan Salt & Sugar Body Scrub + Fresh Mango Body Butter

For a radiant boost, spa-strength Himalayan salt, coupled with apricot seed powder and sugar crystals, works to renew the skin in Desert Essence Nourishing Pink Himalayan Salt & Sugar Body Scrub. Fortified with minerals, this formula also harnesses a luscious combination of shea butter, sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil. For extra glowiness, follow up the scrub with Desert Essence Fresh Mango Body Butter, which keeps skin velvety soft thanks to aloe and mango seed butter.

With these fall skincare tips in mind, give your body a refresh as the days grow shorter and colder. Stock your next at-home spa retreat with Desert Essence’s Body Care Collection for some much-deserved autumnal pampering.
