Autumn is here and with Autumn comes colder weather and new routines. As we transition to the colder weather, we also need to adapt our skincare and makeup routines.
From dry skin to dark circles, we’re dropping all of the secrets to help you achieve healthy glowing skin and feel good this Autumn. There is nothing more satisfying than a good skincare routine, and not to mention it’s therapeutic. We are huge skincare advocates and strongly believe in the power of a pamper session. A happier you, is a healthier you.
Here’s how to transition your skincare routine this Autumn!
As the weather gets colder, our skin can become dryer. Dry skin is one of the most common skin concerns during the colder seasons. When the weather gets colder and humidity drops, and when combined with excessive indoor heating, our skin starts to become stripped of its natural oil and dries out.
No one likes having dry skin. Flaky patches, and itchiness, it’s never something we enjoy. Then, when you try to put makeup on with dry skin and end up with dry patches, it can feel quite frustrating. Luckily, a good moisturiser can be your saving grace.

Moisturiser alone cannot tackle the problem of dry skin, but when combined with an exfoliator, you’ve got a recipe for perfection. Not only that, but the Autumn months also usually bring rain and drought, which can leave bacteria on our skin. We might not know it’s there, but over time, we can end up with a build-up of bacteria which seeps into our pores.
Luckily, a good exfoliator can be everything you need to leave you with fresh and healthy skin. Although we don’t recommend exfoliating every day unless you get an exfoliator that’s suitable for it. We do recommend exfoliating at least once a week and then applying a generous amount of moisturiser to your skin.

Dry skin and next to no sunlight call for a healthy dose of Vitamin C. With the colder weather and a lack of direct sunlight, our skin can start to become dull. Not only that, but the colder weather can also leave us feeling tired and dark circles can start to make an appearance.
Luckily, adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine can help to return your skin to a healthy glow. Vitamin C works by brightening pigmentation and brightening up your under eyes. We recommend applying Vitamin C to your skin at least once a week. There are a lot of arguments out there over what comes first in a skincare routine, but we always recommend applying serum first, then applying moisturiser. A serum’s job is to settle into the skin, whereas moisturiser can act as a barrier, so it’s always best to apply moisturiser last.
