Ever step out of the shower, clean as a whistle, towel off and within minutes your skin feels tight and itchy? Let me guess. You used soap. That trusty, dependable bar that’s been your bath buddy since childhood is somewhat of an enemy now that the rubber ducky is retired and your skin is struggling to stay hydrated as time ticks by.
Back in college, I had a girlfriend who had to-die-for long, thick, wavy hair. She wasn’t shy about sharing her secret. Every week, on Sunday evenings to be exact, she poured an entire cup of warm olive oil over her head, turbaned up with a warm towel and went about her business for a few hours (at home, of course) before washing it out. A little strange, I thought, but easy enough. I decided to give it a try.

The sweltering heat of summer has finally given way to the crispness of autumn, so now is the perfect time to switch up your skincare routine.
Whether the dry air is making your face flaky or summer damage is starting to show up on your skin, it’s never too late to give yourself a fresh start. Check out our top skincare and beauty picks for the fall season:
