October is a great month, no doubt — we've got the early signs of winter, there's always a festival around the corner, and there's a bunch of social events to attend. However, the one pitfall the month has is the constantly oscillating weather.

01. Switch to gentle cleansers
Using a harsh cleanser can strip the natural oils from your face and leave it feeling dry and tight. A trusty go-to when it comes to gentle yet thorough cleaning is the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash. A revitalising and nourishing face wash that contains pro vitamin B for hydration and vitamin E for skin soothing, this soap-free cleanser is a saviour for dry, itchy skin.
02. Amp up the hydration
If your face has been flaky and dry lately, it’s a sign to amp up the hydration. Opting for facial moisturisers with hydrating ingredients can make a huge difference, and what better ingredient to opt for than hyaluronic acid? The humectant holds upto a thousand times its weight in water, making it great for some intense hydration, and the one hyaluronic acid-infused moisturiser we're leaning towards is the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Gel Creme. With the goodness of hyaluronic acid and pentavitin, this lightweight cream will moisturise your skin like no other, while refreshing your skin and keeping it hydrated for hours.
03. Invest in body care
Dry, scaly arms and legs are a huge cause for concern during October. To prevent this, you need to invest in some good-for-you body care, and the Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter and Rose Body Lotion & Body Wash Combo are the ones. The baddie-free, vegan body care staples will nourish your skin with the goodness of natural murumuru butter while making you smell fab thanks to the floral scent of Bulgarian roses — and it's non-greasy too!
04. Don't forget about lip-care
It's easy to forget that dry, itchy skin can happen on the lips, but chapped lips are probably the most common occurrence during October. Make sure that along with your body and your face, your lips are hydrated too using the Vaseline Lip Tin - Cocoa Butter. An uber-hydrating formula, this one is infused with the nourishing properties of cocoa butter that helps lock in moisture and leaves you with healthy-looking lips.
