Buy or DIY: Bath Salts

A nice bath is the perfect antidote to fall's chill. To keep your skin soft, use gentle products, and don't spend too long in the tub.

"Hot soaks are incredibly relaxing but can also be drying," says Ranella Hirsch, M.D., a dermatologist based in Boston. 

Whether you buy your own or use a recipe (like the one below from Bettijo Hirschi, founder of Bath by Bettijo), keep your steep to 10 minutes or less. When you step out, pat your skin dry and apply a thick moisturizer or body oil to seal the water into your skin.
