With the seasons changing and it becoming cooler our skin can typically become a little drier. It’s important to look at your skincare and make changes to ensure you keep your skin happy. Here are some tips and products that’ll help this autumn.
The first product I always look at switching up is my cleanser. During the summer months I have very oily skin so I do tend to favour gel or clay based cleansers however during the cooler months my skin loves a butter or oil – something a little more rich. Not only are these rich and non-stripping they break down make up incredibly. A great cleansing oil is the Red Earth Super Hydrating Cleansing Oil and for a cleansing butter you can’t go past the The Body Shop Camomile Butter. Neither of these will cause irritation to the eyes (something I struggle with when it comes to cleansers) and will give you that clean feeling without being stripping.
Oils are a must when it comes to the cooler months because they’re so multi-purpose. You can pop them on dry cuticles, dry patches on the body or face, in your hair and of course slathered all over the face. I have spoken about my absolute favourite, holy grail oil the Go To Skincare Face Hero Facial Oil (full review here) but if you’re looking for an organic, pure rose hip oil the Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil is a good one too. Remember to not over-do it when applying these bad boys 2-3 drops will do your entire face easily. Another treatment product that I’m really loving at the moment is the Skin Inc Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It’s a similar idea to the likes of Hydraluron by Indeed Labs but it doesn’t leave a sticky residue and isn’t as readily available. This contains a whole lot of Hyaluronic Acid which sounds scary but it helps our skin retain moisture deeper then just the surface.
I tend to stick to a similar routine when it comes to moisturisers using my Jurlique Nutri-Define Rejuvenating Overnight Cream at night. I don’t need to talk about that one anymore – you guys know I cannot recommend that stuff enough for all skin types! During the day though I do like to switch out my usual Dermalogica Clear Start Matte Moisturiser because, as the name suggests, it does mattify and that can cause my make up to cling more to dry patches. Instead I’ve been using the Zk’in Rejuvenating Moisturiser which is a new brand to me. This feels super lightweight but it give the skin a huge boost of hydration. Although I do get dry patches my skin is still combination so underneath my make up I don’t want anything to heavy. The best thing about this product is the way it smooths out the surface of the skin, it’s freaking incredible!! I always make sure to have a really moisturising, basic eye cream as my under eye area is fairly sensitive and dry. The Trilogy Eye Contour Cream is one of my favourites that I recommend to everyone. It’s great if you’re not sure what you’re wanting from an eye cream but still feel like you need some extra moisture around the area.
