Cold weather is upon us and as the leaves and the temperatures change, so does your skin. Autumn and Winter months can be extra harsh on your skin with the dip in humidity, constant exposure to indoor heaters, and the increase in extra hot showers. Additionally, skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis tend to flare up more in the colder months. What’s a girl to do? Keep skin hydrated by switching to an ultra-moisturizing skincare routine.
Fall Routine Tip #1: Moisturize
In the summer months, a more lightweight, daily moisturizer with SPF is ideal to keep skin hydrated without clogging pores, but in the winter, you’re going to need more. Opt for a rich, creamy moisturizer that seals in hydration and protects the skin’s natural barrier. We’re loving our luxurious Quench Moisturizer. This powerful combination of desert botanicals nourishes dry and parched skin at the cellular level yet is also gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and around the eye area.
Fall Routine Tip #2: Minimize Exfoliation
During the colder, drier months, it’s much easier for skin to become irritated and inflamed, so we recommend exfoliating once a week with a light, gentle polish. Our Soothing Polish naturally exfoliates skin with Jojoba beads while hydrating and providing nutrients for cellular repair, leaving skin quenched and silky smooth. This isn’t your grandmother’s polish!
Fall Routine Tip #3: Serums
Add an extra boost of hydration with a serum (or three!). Serums are the foundation of a hydrating skincare routine and deliver a multi-vitamin pack deep within the skin so you can keep that summer glow all year long. Layer on our top-selling Luminous Oil which contains vitamins and minerals essential for healthy, hydrated skin. Containing the hydrating powerhouse ingredient Squalene, found naturally in many plants and animals, including human sebum, squalene makes up about 10-12% of your skin’s natural oils and is incredibly important when it comes to lubricating and protecting skin. If you’re experiencing extra dry skin, we recommend layering serums. Our founder, Jen Scott, swears by layering serums as that is the most efficient way to deliver nutrients in your routine. She recommends using our antioxidant-rich Brightening Serum, followed by our collagen-boosting Firming Serum, and lastly our hydrating (liquid gold in a bottle) Luminous Oil. Make sure to give your skin a minute or two to absorb each serum during the layering process.
Fall Routine Tip #4: Lotions to Crèmes
Step up the hydration not only on your face, but your body too! Create a moisturizing barrier that protects and nourishes your skin by switching from a lightweight body lotion to one of our rich, organic Body Crèmes. Choose from Unscented, Black Amber & Honey, or Rose & Bergamot Body Crème to give your dry, cracked hands and feet the moisture they crave and keep your body glowing all season long!
Fall Routine Tip #5: Listen to your Skin
You know your skin best! Your skin is always changing, no matter the season, and the best thing you can do is pay attention to what your skin is telling you. If something feels off, it probably is. Consult a professional if you consistently struggle with skin issues.
