Dear Shay, How do I change my summer skincare routine to better suit the cooler months? My skin tends to get drier as it gets cooler and my current skincare routine doesn’t cut it anymore. I don’t know where to begin and what to change! Thanks, Liza
You are not alone in this battle! As the seasons change the needs of your skin change as well. Instead of dealing with hot and sticky summer days we are now preparing for a dryer and cooler climate. Hence, you may notice your that your skin isn’t having its needs met with your current skincare routine. It may seem overwhelming to decide what products to add or replace into your routine although, all you need to do is simply listen to your skin to uncover what it's lacking. Here are a few ways to incorporate more hydration into your daily routine, and some of our team’s personal favourite products.
1 Creams & Oil Cleansers
If you find that your skin is tight or dehydrated when you wake up in the morning, opt for a gentle cream or oil cleanser. These types of cleansers are often packed with fatty oils which not only do an amazing job at taking away makeup and impurities but leave your skin feeling nourished and hydrated.
Masks are amazing for a pick me up for those times when your skin needs an extra boost to get glowing. If you find that your skin just needs a hydration treatment once or twice a week to keep it looking its best, hydration masks make a perfect addition to your routine. We recommend looking for masks that contain hyaluronic acid high in the ingredient list as they help your skin retain moisture to boost hydration to your thirsty skin.
3 Moisturizers & Balms
If you feel your skin is in desperate need of hydration constantly, we recommend replacing your moisturizer with something richer. Products that stay on your face the longest are the ones that show the most performance. Here are our golden products to help soothe and nourish the most dull/dehydrated skin.
I wish you the very best at finding your fall/winter skincare routine. You ultimately know what is best your skin and we are more than happy to guide you into make the right decision to make your skin happy. Cheers to keeping your skin happy all year round Liza!
