How to Transition your skincare from Summer to Fall.
The intense heat of summer makes our skin hot, sweaty, and sticky. For some of us, the scorching temperatures mean increased oiliness leading to congested pores and acne, pigmentation issues, and other warm-weather skin conditions.
To meet the demands of our skin during summertime, we had to use products that were best suited for the heat and humidity - lightweight/fluffy moisturizers, mild exfoliants, face washes, etc. But with the Fall season approaching, we have to switch our skincare regimen to accommodate the colder temperatures.
Below, we'll outline suitable Fall-friendly products that should replace your summer personal care products.
Switch Your Moisturizers.
As the temperature continues to drop, your light moisturizer, which was perfect for your skin during the summer, will not be able to moisturize your skin during Fall adequately. Why, may you ask?
The cold weather can easily cause dryness and dehydration, and it's best to ensure that your skin is getting enough moisture.
The best way to achieve optimal hydration this Fall is by using a creamy and ultra-nourishing moisturizer such as the Sacha Inchi Face Cream.
It contains peptides, nutrient-dense botanicals (e.g., Ucuuba Butter extract), antioxidant-rich oils like Cacay (also called Cahay) oil and Green Coffee organic oil, and a powerful hydrator (e.g., hydrolyzed Quinoa).
Go Easy on oil-control cleansers.
Your foaming cleansing may have been your "Holy Grail" product for dealing with excess oil and decongesting your pores during summertime, but you need to let it go come Fall.
As the temperature cools down, your oil glands will produce less oil. If you continue using cleansers that strip oil from your skin, you'll be left to deal with skin issues such as dryness, flakiness, redness, and itchiness.
To ensure your skin is happy, choose creamy cleansers that supply your skin with enough moisture and oil while eliminating dirt and grime.
Invest in a potent Facial Oil.
Face oils are lifesavers for cold seasons. Investing in a good facial oil is the secret to maintaining radiant and luminous skin even when the temperature is freezing.
Facial oils regenerate, restore, and refresh your skin after exposure to the elements.
As a rule of thumb, we recommend using a facial oil that absorbs quickly while offering numerous skin-enhancing benefits.
An exceptional facial oil is the Super Fruit facial oil which contains plant-powered oils such as Passion Fruit oil, organic Buriti Oil, Cacay Nut Oil and Acai Oil.
Do you know why we love this facial oil?
To start, it's excellent for all skin types, including the most sensitive, non-comedogenic and won't clog pores.
Are you dealing with discoloration or uneven skin tone caused by sun exposure during summer? The mild form of Plant-based Retinol in this formula will depigment your skin and boost cell renewal. Traditional Retinol can leave your skin red, irritated, and sensitive to the sun. Cacay oil contains 3x the amount of Plant-based Retinol as Rosehip Oil. It also contains Vitamin C, which helps to repair sun-induced damage and fight against free radicals.
Resist Hot Showers
The frigid weather may tempt you to take hot baths; please, do not fall into this temptation.
Hot showers will eliminate oil from your skin, cause excessive dryness, worsen other skin concerns, and may even lead to irritation. We advise that you take only warm showers during bath time. Follow up with a moisturizer to prevent moisture loss while your skin is still damp.
Fall is forthcoming, and with the right skincare essentials in your arsenal, your skin will seamlessly transition from hot to cold weather. By using products that are best suited for your skin type and needs, your complexion will shine through during this season and all year round. Count on us in this mission.
Happy Fall, and enjoy a good Pumpkin Latte in your neighbourhood!
