5 Tips to Get Rid of Dry Skin During Autumn

5 Tips to Get Rid of Dry Skin During Autumn

The autumn season is set to fall upon us. The winds will start getting colder, the nights longer & your skin drier. Now, although you can hardly do anything about the former two, there are ways to cater to the last one. Right after a fairly humid monsoon season come the dry winds of fall. It brings an end to the summer-monsoon humidity, which is a relief, but along with this, it brings dryness to the atmosphere and the skin. The question is, how do you get rid of this dryness? What steps do you need to include in your skincare regime and everyday life to help you tackle dry skin in the autumn season? Let’s dive in.

Basic Signs That You Have Dry Skin:

Skin experts and scientists have already established that winter/colder weather leads to dry skin. The outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, when damaged by cold winds, causes dry skin. If any of the following symptoms are prevalent on your skin, it is a cause of concern and needs instant care:

  • Flaky skin
  • Itching
  • Stinging
  • Redness (majorly seen in lighter skin tones)
  • Skin cracks
  • Rough patches

The Do’s & Don’ts for Your Dry Skin During Autumn:

With changing weather, a significant change you need to incorporate is a switch in your skincare routine. Here are some tips for dry skin that you can inculcate for a healthier, supple, and hydrated skin. 


  • Use a Strong Moisturiser

The best way to keep your skin hydrated is by keeping it moisturized. Now since this is a season where your skin requires more hydration, it is suggested that you use an intense moisturizer like the Phyto Ceramide Deep Moisturiser.

  • Avoid Long Hot Water Showers

Although it sounds & feels very comforting, hot water showers dry up your skin by stripping the skin off its natural oils. Try showering with lukewarm water instead &/or limit your time in the shower. It is also vital that you moisturize right after you’re done with the shower.

  • Opt for Mild, Foaming Cleansers

Using mild and foaming cleansers for dry skin is a regime you should follow no matter what the season is. But especially for dry skin care, gentle & fragrance-free cleansers are highly recommended. We strongly recommend the Oats, Milk & Honey Body Cleanser for your body and the Phyto Ceramide Foaming Cleanser for your face to maintain that supple glow & keep your skin hydrated. 

  • Create a Day & Night Moisturizing Schedule

To tackle any skin problems, you need to follow a skincare routine. Your skin needs extensive care during the day and repair during the night. The perfect partner to deal with this is the Night & Day cream moisturizer by Earth Rhythm.
    • Intense Nourish Day Cream Moisturizer: Loaded with the goodness of Vitamin E, this cream improves cell function & regeneration. It also protects you from UV rays so you can enjoy the sun freely during the fall/winter season.
    • Intense Repair Night Cream Moisturizer: It has Retinol that works as an anti-aging agent. It soothes and moisturizes your skin overnight for a plump and glowing appearance every morning.
  • Pay Special Attention to Facial Serum & Oil.

While using mild facial cleansers is almost necessary this time of the year, we also advocate the usage of face serums or facial oils as they’re more commonly known. Earth Rhythm Kukui Nut Facial Oil for Intense Hydration and Hyaluronic Acid Serum for dry skin works great for keeping even sensitive and acne-prone skin with ample hydration for that necessary glow.


Autumn and winters are seasons that are enjoyed by a vast majority of people, for it is a season where you don’t have to deal with heat waves; you can move around more freely and step out in the sun with confidence. To enjoy the sun, make sure always to wear sunscreen because self-care comes first. Knowing your skin type before using a product or switching to a skincare regime is also important. If you already have oily skin, use a milder moisturizer and products that suit acne-prone or oily skin. While in a case where you already have dry skin, you need to switch to a more intense routine, use intense sunscreens & moisturizers.
