September 23rd was the first day of Fall, but it really didn't feel like it. Today, however, feels like Fall. I'm wearing a long sleeve shirt and I've never wanted hot coffee more. I'm also planning on going jean shopping this afternoon. The cold weather is coming fast and I'm kind of excited for the coziness of sweaters and blanket scarves, for thick socks, luxurious lip butters, and endless cups of hot tea.
With the change of seasons comes a change in beauty products and today's the perfect day to sit and chat with you about my Fall skincare routine. If you're new to the blog, I have dry and sensitive skin, but I also deal with acne here and there. So the products I use are meant to hydrate and calm while trying to keep acne at bay. In the Fall I start to add more hydrating products, like facial oils or thick moisturizing balms. So today I'll chat with you about my morning skincare routine, and on Friday we'll talk about my evening skincare routine.
Facial Cleansing Creme // Acure Organics
Acure has three different cleansers for oily, dry, and sensitive skin. The option for sensitive skin has a lot of coconut, which my skin doesn't like, so I chose the cleanser for drier skin. This is technically a 2014 beauty find, but I think I'm going to include it in my 2015 beauty finds because it's my favourite morning cleanser. It's a very gentle, creamy cleanser with ingredients like argan oil and aloe that leave your skin soft and hydrated. It also smells divine!
Green Tea and Rose Hydrating Face Serum // John Masters Organics
I love green tea, I love rose, and I have dry skin, so when I needed a morning serum this was the perfect option. It's a very light but hydrating serum that sinks in quickly and leaves my skin soft and soothed. The green tea provides some antioxidants and the rose is great for calming any irritation I'm experiencing. This was my introduction to John Masters but I think I'm going to be trying out some other products soon!
Organic Facial Toner // Acure Organics
Acure has two different toners and they're both lovely. They have beautiful glass packaging, the ingredients are all so amazing for your skin, and they're pretty reasonably priced. This toner is more calming and hydrating, which is why I think it's great for Fall. It's got wonderful ingredients like organic witch hazel, lavender, chamomile and calendula. All of those ingredients are going to nourish and hydrate your skin, leaving you with a soft and glowy complexion.
Argan Oil Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 // 100% Pure
This is my favourite sun protection product. It's super hydrating so I don't need a separate day cream, but it's got enough coverage so my sensitive skin is protected from the sun. It's also got lots of nourishing, hydrating ingredients that can help your skin look amazing despite the cold weather ahead of us.
Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream // 100% Pure
This is another favourite product. It goes on super smoothly so I'm not pulling at my delicate eye area, and it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day so my concealer looks smooth and my tired eyes look awake!
