Fall is officially here and as the leaves change and the weather gets colder we should be reminded that our skincare routines need to follow suit. You can protect your entire body from the harsher elements of cold weather by choosing a nourishing combination of gentle products to care for your skin.
Start With Exfoliation
While exfoliation is an important step in your weekly skincare routine, it’s especially crucial as we transition into the colder Fall (and into Winter) months ahead. During the hot summer months, build up of sunscreen and self-tanners may have left you with clogged pores, blotchy skin, and blackheads. To banish all said skin concerns, we have a few recommendations—
For The Face / Vitamin C Facial Mask mixed with Greek yogurt: Our Vitamin C Mask is made with Rosehip + Strawberry extracts which are both rich in vitamin C, aiding in the production of collagen and reducing the appearance of sun damage—all of which may be much needed after Summer. Also, mixing this dry mask with Greek yogurt will act as a gentle chemical exfoliant thanks to the yogurts lactic acid.
For The Body / Coffee Body Scrub: Caffeine is known to support skin elasticity and aid in collagen production. The finely-ground coffee and raw sugar exfoliate the skin while the shea-butter and coconut oil work their moisturizing-magic! Exfoliation is an important part of staving off dry skin and our Coffee Body Scrub will give your body that all-over glow!
A bonus, of course, is that our Coffee is sourced locally, fair-trade and organic, from our friends at Brooklyn Roasting Company. The sugar and shea-butter we use in our scrub are also organic!
Opt For A Richer Moisturizer
Fall is a great time to incorporate heavier moisturizers into your skincare routine. Parched and dry from the season’s temperature changes, your skin needs help locking in hydration above all else! Here are some of our tried-and-true products that do just that.
For The Face / Regenerative Facial Serum: Our serum is a great moisturizing option for your skin in response to changing and colder temperatures. It’s rich in omegas and vitamins, helping to repair the delicate skin on your face. And it's still lightweight enough to use in the morning. It’s also great to add into a heavier cream at night or when the temperature really starts to drop.
For The Body / Hydrating Body Oil: While our Repairing Body Oil is great for summer, our Hydrating Body Oil is amazing for the colder months. It’s made with rosehip and sweet almond oil which help to moisturize and treat irritated skin, both are much needed for this time of year.
Add In Some Revitalizing Treatments
When the weather starts cooling down, it’s a great time to start adding some more treatments into your routine. When it starts to get colder, we like to take full advantage of adding warmth into our regimen.
For The Face / Botanical Facial Steam: Our facial steam is the perfect self-care treatment for every skin type. The floral and herbal blend help to soothe the skin, reduce inflammation, as the steam hydrates. It also just feels really good, especially when it’s freezing outside.
For The Body / Replenishing Salt Soak: Himalayan and dead sea-salts are rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium which are helpful in removing toxins, stimulating circulation, and soothing sore muscles—all of which can be incredibly comforting for the body when the temperatures begin to drop!
