While we’re all clinging on to those last warm days, the reality is that fall is here and the proof is in the lengthening shadows, gorgeous change in colours, and crisp early mornings!
With the change in season, comes a need for a change in your skin care routine. It’s important to put more emphasis on hydrating products that work to infuse your skin with moisture that may be lost in the crisp, dry air of this chilly season.
To make things easier for you, and lessen the confusion of what to use and what not to use this coming season, we’ve put together just two of our favourite skin care tips to make the transition to Fall a seamless one!
Scrub first, hydrate later
Don’t even think about applying skin care products if you haven’t scrubbed up first!
While our skin naturally sheds skin cells, sometimes these skin cells can shed faster than our skin is able to eliminate them causing build up on the skin. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts, so a good scrub simply helps the process along.
Also, as you get older, cell turnover slows down so it takes longer for new skin cells to come to the surface, however exfoliation can certainly speed this up so you can enjoy glowing skin whenever you’d like!
Last, but not least, exfoliation helps to ensure your products actually sink down into your pores, rather than sit on the surface of the skin.
We have a variety of natural exfoliating products available. It all depends on what you’re looking for.
Balance your skin with facial oils
Nothing moisturizes quite as well as an oil and, in fact, once you try it out for yourself you won’t look back!
Oils are more concentrated than regular moisturizers because they contain no water, which makes them the ideal way to amp up hydration in your skin care routine.
If you’re new to facial oils, we recommend Dr. Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Face Oil. It’s light, nourishing, and because it imitates your skin’s own natural oils, it's great for all types of skin.
If your skin is dry and needs a boost of moisture, our Nourishing Facial Oil by Suki Skincare, is filled with luxurious oils and powerful antioxidants to leave a veil of dewy hydration on your skin any time of the day or night!
If anti-ageing is what you’re looking for, Agent Nateur’s Holi(oil) Youth Serum delivers! It contains a high-powered mix of antioxidants and vitamins to leave your skin looking amazing.
We recommend applying facial oils to skin that is slightly damp for better absorption. Always press the oil into your skin rather than rub it in, as this simply causes the product to glide off the skin.
These tips are easy peasy, but really do make a huge difference for great skin this fall!
