Summer to Autumn Transitional Skincare

Summer to Autumn seems to have come around so quick... And I hate to say it, but I am quite excited about the weather getting a little colder. I'm looking forward to wrapping up in some wooly knits and sitting in with a cuppa watching a good ol' movie. There's just nothing better in the Winter is there? Okay, I may be getting ahead of myself, corr, next I'll be talking Christmas (I won't, don't worry). But with the weather getting a little colder, it can play a bit of havoc with our skin and so we need to make sure we've got all the bases covered. 

First things first, keep hydrated. I've got dry and dehydrated skin so I've got to make sure I'm on this step 24/7. The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is an all time favourite of mine. I haven't been using it throughout the spring/summer but as soon as the colder weather comes back round again, I know it'll be making appearance after appearance. It's an overnight mask or basically a super hydrating night cream that just smells amazing. If you've not given this one a go, you need to. Just trust me on this... 

Scrub, scrub, scrub... Exfoliating is so important and that's why I've included the Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix* in this post. The colder weather can make our skin all dry and flaky and this sort of scrub helps with that. It's a lovely scrub, and I really like the effect it has on my skin! 

I've not always be a massive fan of this product, although, I can see why others are so thought it was worth a mention. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a perfect 'spritz' to carry around with you to keep your skin hydrated on the go, plus it works well to wake you and your skin up on those colder mornings when leaving bed is just too much... 

Just because it's becoming a little colder, it doesn't mean that the sun has disappeared! Keep on going with the SPF and this one from Balance Me is perfect for your face. The Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25* is a beautiful SPF, it feels like you're applying a moisturiser and that's perfect for all year round. Also, we could still have a few more hot days, right? All hope isn't lost yet... 

Thinking of that sun, I'm now talking a few products that will bring back that summer feeling and remind you of all the summer memories. The Time Bomb Complexion Cocktails* are just perfect for that and I've got the Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail with a shot of B12, the Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail with a shot of Chlorophyll and the Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail with a shot of H2Omega. They all have an area that they target specifically. The B12 is to reboot tired skin, the Chlorophyll is to reboot stressed skin and the H2Omega is to combat dehydration. All perfect products for this temperamental time of year and they smell AMAZING. 

Keep hydrated, stay protected and enjoy what if any warmer weather we are still having.

  1. Sadly, I don't really have any skincare products. I know, I need to treat my skin better, I'm gonna have to check some of these out.

    1. It's definitely worth it. Maybe you should have a chat with someone on a stand and see what they'd recommend for your skin. Kiehls do great consultations! x
