The season of cosy jumpers, dark lipsticks and pumpkin spiced everything has arrived and we have major autumn feels. As we start to feel the change in temperature, it's important to know how this will affect your skin and what you should do to make sure you stay clear and glowy throughout the colder months.
As temperatures drop, so does the humidity which means the air is drier than in the balmy summer months. Your skin can lose moisture a lot more quickly so it's a good time to review your current cleanser. If it tends to leave your skin tight and dry, it may be worth considering changing to a creamy cleanser, that will help you retain those important natural oils.
Our Bog Myrtle and Lime Cleanser
is made with castor oil meaning it is super gentle at lifting dirt and bacteria from the skin while tackling hormonal breakouts and balancing natural oils. Plus it comes in this gorgeous aluminium bottle and a refill option is coming very soon!
Loss of moisture can sometimes lead to flakiness which can be difficult to tackle, and make applying makeup a little more tricky. A good but gentle exfoliation can remove dead skin cells that build up, leaving you with a clear, glowy complexion.
This is such an important part of skincare, and even more so when the mercury drops. If you don't already have an hydration boosting serum in your prep routine, get one! It will help your skin retain its barrier against the elements plus will help avoid dry patches and flakiness. Treat yourself to hydrating sheet masks once or twice a week and pop a facial mist in your bag for a hydrating spritz throughout the day!

Just because the sun isn't shining as brightly, doesn't mean it isn't there so be sure to keep applying SPF before you leave the house. Your future self will thank you for it.
