Fall is here! It’s time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and holiday feasts. But, along with this, dry skin is one of the things that many of us struggle with the most, during this season.
Dry skin is the big bad during these chilly months. With a few sustainable beauty swaps and well-picked fall skincare essentials, keep your skin glowing and hydrated throughout the pumpkin season and snowy weather to come.
Why do you need a new skincare routine for the fall?
Updating your skincare routine with the weather is not just a trend; it is a necessity!
The summer months come with lots of humidity, sun exposure, and indoor air conditioning. For this, SPFs, light-feel moisturizers, and bucket hats are your best friends during the summer.
However, these cooler months towards the end of the year bring with them humidity drops, chilly temperatures, dry air, windy days (sometimes rainy, too), and indoor heating. With these extreme changes, your skin loses its moisture, causing increased dryness, sensitivity, and irritation.
So, just like changing your wardrobe for the fall season, changing your beauty routine becomes a necessity too. To do it right, you need to pick the right fall skincare essentials.
8 products to add to your fall skincare routine
Here at GoodGuilt, we want to make your life easy. We understand what it takes to find the right beauty products that suit the weather and your skin. (Only if brands had a filter to ‘shop by weather,’ right?)
So, we searched for the top 8 fall skincare essentials that are a MUST-have, this season.
1. Herbivore Botanicals Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil
Herbivore Botanicals bring you the magic of plants bottled in the dreamiest, recyclable packaging. Meet the emerald deep moisture glow oil, the green goddess of oils, as it’s called. Reach for this oil to give your skin a dose of calm.
This oil deeply moisturizes the skin with the blend of omega fatty acid and skin-soothing hemp seed oil. Adaptogens like ashwagandha, turmeric, and shiitake protect the skin from environmental stressors so your skin can stay relaxed in the fall.
The cannabis in this facial oil has many topical skin health benefits, like soothing redness from acne. In addition, it helps calm irritation and provides deep moisture to dry, stressed-out skin. This oil suits all skin types, including blemish-prone skin.
Moreover, this oil glides on effortlessly. You only need to use 4-6 drops per application.
2. Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist
Juice beauty’s hydrating mist is what you need if your skin feels dehydrated and patchy. It tones and refreshes with the blend of certified organic ingredients while protecting your skin and without hurting the planet.
Organic aloe leaf juice, which is rich in glycoproteins and soothing properties, helps improve skin hydration. Rose geranium is rich in vitamins; potent tartaric alpha-hydroxy acid is rich in resveratrol antioxidants. Both these ingredients help to promote beautiful skin. And ylang-ylang flower gives this product a luxurious aroma.
The best way to use this mist is to apply it after a shower. However, you should also use this hydrating mist for setting makeup or spray it on your hands and legs post-shaving (clap, clap, for multitasking!)
