Change of Seasons Skincare
As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, the best days of summer are behind us. It’s not all doom and gloom though - colder weather means cozy nights in and an opportunity for some great seasonal food.
Just as you’re changing your wardrobe for fall and winter, it’s a great time to change up your skincare too!
During fall there's a wide variance in daily temperatures which can easily break the skin's balance, making it more prone to irritation. Pollution also starts getting worse around October too, as people start heating their houses.
Removing dead skin cells in a timely manner is beneficial for the skin because it helps keep it moisturised, protects it and prevent it from looking dry and congested.
Whereas in summer we can often opt for lighter, cooler, more minimalist routines in winter, the focus turns to optimal hydration.
The lovely, cooling gel textures that feel great in summer aren't always the best for your winter skincare wardrobe. Instead, you'll want something that’s super nourishing and locks in hydration.
Because you're going to be going thicker and heavier with your layers, it's even more important to start your routine right. Double cleansing keeps your skin free from impurities.
Incorporating an oil-based cleanser or balm into your winter skincare routine will effectively cleanse without drying out your skin. Following up with a gentle foaming cleanser can help remove any leftover debris that pops up during colder weather.

Even if you’re into a minimalist routine, now is a great opportunity to add in extra skincare steps if your skin’s feeling a little dry. Layering some extra products is a great way to do this. Remember to start your steps from thinnest to thickest (toner, essence, serum) for best results.
The aim of your fall / winter skincare game is hydration, hydration, hydration. Sleeping masks come into their own now.
Incorporating an effective overnight treatment will keep your skin plump and dewy like a glazed donut even with the cold. Other options include sheet masks (although maybe not the nicest feeling in winter).
Modelling masks are also great, but only for those with a bit of extra time up their sleeves because they are finicky and a bit harder to remove.
If your lips are falling apart thanks to the combination of cooler temperatures and winds, then it’s time to add some special lip care products to your routines.
Many products on the market these days from lip balms to oils and even lip sleeping masks. They transform lips from chapped to supple and soft overnight, and can even double as a lip gloss during winter as well.
