Fall is here and although we will be wearing masks for the most part and staying indoors, that does not mean you should skimp on skincare. If fact, you definitely should take a little more care now because of added elements of masks and recirculated indoor air. These things can all take a toll on our skin, so I wanted to share my top 5 fall skincare essentials that need to be in your skincare routine right now.
The removal of makeup when the weather changes for fall is of the utmost importance. Your days seem a bit shorter, but you may be working from home, spending more time in your makeup.
If this is the case, or if you wear makeup period, make sure you are removing it properly. Dry skin flakes can attach to the makeup, causing it to aggravate the skin even more. With a gentle makeup removing cleanser like the belif aqua bomb cleansing balm, this will not only remove the makeup completely, but leave the skin moisturized in the process. I find myself reaching for this cleanser daily because not only does it turn from a solid to an oil, but the formulation is not runny after it turns into an oil so removal is quite pleasant.
The ingredients like lotus flower, gives the skin a natural radiance, is great for all skin types. The balm also contains Marshmallow Root, which protects and moisturizes skin as well as Lady‘s Mantle, which provides antioxidants and pore-minimizing effects.
2. Dermologica Daily Microfoliant
This rice-based exfoliant makes sure that I get rid of all the dead skin or any left over makeup I may have on my face. I use this every night and my skin thanks me for it every day.
It is gentle and has not caused me any break outs by being harsh on my skin. It also allows for better absorption of any medication or ingredients that I put on. This ensures that I get the most out of my skin care. Once it is activated upon contact with water, it releases Papain, Salicylic Acid (great for acne!) and Rice Enzymes to my polish skin revealing brighter, smoother skin.
This super creamy, hydrating cleanser sends moisture to your skin so deeply, that you feel it immediately.
It is a gentle cleanser and you only need a little bit of it to have a soothing, cleansing experience. It is does not have an overbearing coconut scent and the jojoba infused formula also has cinnamon extract for anti-inflammatory properties. While it is ideal for dry skin, it is designed to be used on all skin types and my combo skin really enjoys this. If you want to try a this with an added serum and lotion, try the PIXI Beauty Skin Soothing Trio that comes with the Hydrating Milky Cleanser, Hydrating Milky Serum, and Hydrating Milky Lotion.
If you are looking for a smooth, yet cooling sensation that takes your skin on a moisture journey through time, then this is the light blue gel moisturizer for you.
It is light weight and the gel texture makes for a relaxing, no-mess application. My skin sucks this up and it completely disappears the instant it hits my skin. Recommended for all skin types, the belif the true cream aqua bomb contains moisture giving ingredients like Ceramide 3 and glycerin. I love this after a deep clay mask session as my skin needs moisture immediately. It really packs a punch so a little bit goes a long way.
I could not close out my top 5 fall skincare essentials without something for the lips. During the fall time, my lips get super dry once the air gets colder, even in the house.
I use this lip butter twice daily as it gives the lips instant hydration. I moisturize my lips right out of the shower morning and night as it keeps me moisturized once applied. The Farmacy Beauty Honey Butter lip balm is a natural lip balm and primer all in one that helps to moisturize and condition my lips. The formula contains honey, which is a natural humectant, beeswax, and cupuaçu butter that are great for dry skin. The skin on your lips can peel easily so having these moisture loving ingredients to nourish your lips around the clock is the best thing ever.
