5 Ingredients You Should Be Using in Your Skincare Routine this Fall!

Just as you switch up the inside of your wardrobe as each season approaches, our skincare stashes need to be overhauled, too. Why bother? Well, your skin is more exposed to environmental aggressors during the colder months and is bombarded with varying temperatures which in turn, wreak havoc on your poor skin’s moisture levels. 

When we talk about ‘environmental aggressors’ and ‘varying temperatures’, we’re talking about taking a hot shower, then trudging through bitterly cold weather to maybe get to your office, which has the central heating cranked up to maximum. That’s a lot for your skin to be working with. So, to help it out and keep hydration levels stable, below are some ingredients that you should be thinking about including in your skincare routine this fall!

Skincare Ingredients

1. Oils

Oils rich in essential fatty acids and lipids such as rosehip, avocado, and marula oil are essential for not only combatting dryness, but they also form a barrier between harsh conditions and the skin, keeping hydration levels balanced and the skin protected. Just remember to apply oils after any water-based creams, serums or moisturisers (oil can penetrate water-based products, but not vice versa).

2. Sheet Masks

Hydrating masks are great, but sheet masks take hydration to another level. Firstly, the delivery system is much more effective; a sheet doused in serum allows for optimal penetration as the sheet acts as a barrier, forcing your skin to absorb the active ingredients in the serum. Serums are also able to penetrate the skin much deeper than a traditional cream-based hydrating mask, too.

3. Vitamin C

As an ingredient that works to brighten the complexion and boost radiance, it already fits perfectly with this time of year, but it also works to undo sun damage that may have been caused during the summer months.

4. AHAs

When we think of colder weather and our skin together, we think of dryness, dullness and flaky patches, right? The build-up of dry skin and dead skin cells needs to be sloughed away, but as our skin tends to become more sensitive in colder conditions, physical scrubs aren’t recommended. Instead, try using an AHA based exfoliator such as a glycolic acid toner to gently but effectively break down those dead skin cells. Just remember to apply SPF daily when using acids.

5. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is truly one of the most transformative skincare ingredients out there! It holds moisture in between skin cells, retains moisture and therefore gives us plump, hydrated skin. All skin types benefit from this ingredient and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough for when we’re all prone to dehydration in the fall time.
