3 Reasons To Rethink Your Skin Care Approach This Fall
So autumn has arrived and maybe you’re desperate to preserve that sun-kissed, summer glow. The air becomes crisp, pants get longer, sweaters become thicker and all at once we are forced back into those everyday routines. The season of change is a perfect time to revaluate your skin care approach. As the temperature changes and the air gets drier, beauty routines often transition from simple summer care to multi-step hydrating systems. Before you rush out and buy all the new skin care fads for fall, consider these three simple revisions.
Summer skincare is simple. You apply SPF moisturizer, a little mascara and you’re out the door. Then, September arrives and with it come dozens of new skin care and beauty “must haves”. But beautiful skin doesn’t need to be complicated. This fall, introduce minimalism into your skin care routine. Save yourself from buying an abundance of products, instead investing that money into fewer, and better products. Choose skin care products that are made of natural ingredients, hydrating oils and light exfoliants to keep that glow going as long as possible. The Geranium Renewal Bar is our fave pick that fits any fall skin needs. It’s formulated with French Rose Clay to clarify and smooth skin and 50% olive oil to help prevent dryness, and is an excellent nightly wash during your skincare routine. With one simple step you’ll notice your skin is hydrated and glowing. Less time spent applying beauty products means you’ll have more time to sit back and relax, without compromising on beautiful skin.
Indulge in Relaxation
Life is busy, especially during fall. Whether you’re getting yourself back into routine, or your kids settled into theirs, you need to take time for yourself. In the bustle of daily life nothing helps restoration of the mind and body more than taking thirty minutes in the evening and running a hot bath to help you unwind. A warm bath is known to promote healthier skin, improve sleep & mood and flush toxins from the body. Mix in natural bath bombs or soaking salts that are made with essential oils and enjoy the relaxation provided by aromatherapy. The Pumpkin Spice bath bomb is a fall favorite among our staff. Made with organic pumpkin oil (hello, fruit enzymes!) that promote cell turn over, this simple addition to your bath will help condition and deeply moisturize even the driest skin. Treat yourself to some natural soaking salts or bath bombs and run a bath once a week. You won’t regret it!
Sorry Salad, Olive Oil Has Moved On
Oil cleansing is trending, which has caused oil to go from foe to friend. Natural oil, such as olive, sweet almond and coconut, are beneficial for skin. Oil cleansing nourishes and moisturizes the skin while also removing impurities, bacteria and dead skin cells. It will promote a healthy natural glow due to the presence of anti-oxidants and is beneficial for all skin types, especially acne prone skin. Using a natural oil to cleanse, balances and regulates oil production and is non-comedogenic. To ensure our olive oil soap bars are deeply nourishing, we superfat all of our bars 5% to ensure a hydrating wash experience. Superfatting is the addition of additional nourishing oils in order to add extra moisturizing properties to the natural soap bars. Charcoal Rosa soap is our go-to when faced with problem skin. It contains activated bamboo charcoal to help draw out toxins and impurities, while olive oil hydrates and promotes a healthy glow. Palmarosa and Bergamot essential oils help combat bacteria and deodorize skin and Lavender soothes irritation. So move over, dull, dehydrated skin – olive oil based cleansing has arrived!
Proper skin care doesn’t need to be time consuming. Simplify your life this fall by trying a few natural products, easy routines and products made with natural, skin-loving ingredients. Make time for yourself and choose wildly happy skin!
