Transitioning Into Autumn

I’m a little biased about October. It’s my favorite month of the year. Here in New York, October always signals cooler weather, changing leaves, and for me, my birthday! (Hi, Libras & Scorpios!)

But October is also a month about transitions, and transitions, though necessary, can be challenging for both mind and body.

Eucerin Smoothing Essentials Body Lotion & Calming Creme (Just Part Of The October Eucerin Giveaway)

One way to ease this transition for our minds is to feel gratitude. Take a moment to feel gratitude for shifts and changes. Feel gratitude for what was, what is, and what will be. Remind yourself that transitions and change are a necessary and wonderful part of life.

And for your body, take some time to notice how your body’s needs may have changed. As it gets colder, maybe you’re craving more soups and cooked vegetables. Maybe you need to rest a little more. Or maybe the cooler weather is energizing you and you want to move more.

As for skincare, see what changes might feel good.  I’m really enjoying using the Eucerin Calming Crème right now!

Plus, this month we have another opportunity for awesome Eucerin swag! Seriously, these prize packs just get better and better.   Here’s all you have to do to be registered to win:

  • Be 18 or older and a U.S. resident.

Happy swagging!

My daughter suffers from extreme dry skin and Eucerin is the best to help curb the dryness!

Fall is the worst for itching dry skin. I’m a nurse and we use Eucerin in the hospital for our patients with severe dry skin :)

I swear by Eucerin’s calming cream…my daughter and I both get exzema and it’s seriously the best to head it off before it gets so bad that you can see it…fall is really hard on your skin!

To transition into Fall, I’m giving my home some “cozy” touches: throw blankets across chairs, new candles on tables and kitchen countertops, and I’m putting the crock pot back to work. My family loves to come home and have the scent of chili or a roast filling the air. For me, Fall is my favorite season, so this is my favorite transition of the year! There’s nothing better than feeling the cool, crisp air on your face while bundled up in a jacket. The darkness falls early, which brings my family in sooner each day to snuggle up in our pajamas and watch a good movie. You can’t beat that!

I love Eucerin products!

I follow Eucerin on twitter.

I make October a calming month for skin by using my favorite handmade soap.

My autumn tip is not only to slather on a nice lotion like Eucerine after every hand wash and every squirt of of handsanitizer, but also up the good oils in your life. My personal skin fav is to peel and slice fresh cucumbers and then lightly salt them and drizzle extra virgin olive oil on them. They are tasty and super good for your skin – from the veggie to the oil! I also up my omega 3 fatty acids to include a capsule daily instead of just my wild caught fish.

We need this! Stress of a new job plus the weather change has brought on my daughter’s eczema so bad! She is so uncomfortable without her Eucerin. Hope we win <3 be well!
