Autumn is well and truly upon us. It’s a lot darker in the mornings and the sun has pretty much taken his hat off and done one. Whilst I do love Summer and nothing cheers me up like spending a day in sun, i’m also a huge fan of cosy nights in and chunky knits.
In the warmer months I love to go for lighter products, whether that be foundations, body cream or facial moisturisers, they always leave my skin feeling really refreshed and revitalised. However, as the weather turns colder and we get to Autumn my skin needs really rich products, otherwise my skin completely dries out and gets really flaky, particularly on my forehead and around my nose. I also get quite bumpy skin on the back of my forearms, which I always have if I don’t exfoliate and apply body cream, but it just seems worse in the Autumn/Winter. My lips also shrivel up and can become quite sore and chapped as it gets colder so a nourishing lip balm is a must..
I’ve decided to put away my much loved Summer products and delve to the back of my drawers for these three winter saviours *angels sing, birds tweet..or not, they’ve migrated by now surely*
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter is my go-to body lotion in Autumn! It’s so rich, creamy and velvety. I apply this straight after i’ve got out the shower and it takes no time at all to sink in. It smells delicious and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy, which is a huge bonus in my eyes! A little of this product definitely goes a long way so you get a lot for your money!
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is my face’s holy grail! I apply this every night, only the smallest amount, and work it mainly onto my forehead in-between my brows, and around my nose as those are the places I get most dry. If I don’t apply this overnight, my makeup can look really cakey, which is NEVER a good look. It applies really smoothly, and again..smells delicious and fresh!
Reve De Miel Lip Balm is a product I heard so many amazing things about, but didn’t quite believe, until I bought it for myself!! It’s really thick and unbelievably nourishing on the lips! I’m always recommending this lip balm to people with chapped lips, because it really does work wonders!
What are your go-to Autumn/Winter skincare products? I’d love to know!
