With the season change and Fall officially making a comeback, you might be noticing a difference in the way your skin feels and looks. Typically in the fall comes dry weather, winds, rain, etc. This can make your skin feel tight and dry but don’t worry this is not permanent and you are able to fix this by switching up your routine! During the colder seasons, your skin needs more moisture. Here is a perfect example of a fall skincare routine that will keep your skin feeling hydrated, plump and smooth all day long.
Every routine starts with a fresh base. You’ll need to cleanse all the dirt, pollution, germs, and makeup off your face every night. Our Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk is great during the fall because it’s sulfate free and never leaves your skin feeling tight or stripped. You never want your skin to feel dry after cleansing, that means you’ve removed your skin’s natural moisture by over cleansing. Bad sign! This can either lead to excessive oiliness to over compensate for the moisture being sucked out of your skin or extremely tight sensitive skin.
It’s great to get into the habit of pampering your skin at least once a week. While you still should be focusing on cleaning out your pores and exfoliating your skin, you’ll want to use something that provides a little more moisture than usual. Again, you don’t want to dry out your skin, you want to create the perfect balance. Our favorite for this is our Matcha Green Tea + Lemon Detoxifying Charcoal Mask. This will get rid of all impurities, refresh your complexion but the Green Tea will keep it moisturized and protect it from anti-aging.
This is a really important part in your routine, however this step might not be the same for everyone. While you do want to keep your skin moisturized throughout the colder months, the perfect amount of moisturizer depends solely on your skin type. If you have oily skin, you’re going to want something a bit more lightweight. If you have dry skin, you’ll want something that nourishes your skin. For combination, you’ll want something in the middle depending on your preference. We have tons of amazing options for each skin type that are shop-able here.
While this step is optional, it might be our favorite! If you’re looking to provide your skin with some extra coverage, make sure you’re using something appropriate for the colder months. Our Youth Glow CC Cream is our favorite for colder months as it contains Hyaluronic Acid which keeps your skin hydrated all day.
