When autumn is in the air, we all need to update our skincare routines. Somebody, like Cultbeauty may be talking of ‘transitional skincare’ to define the seasonal switch in a more effective and commercial way. Though still focusing on light weighting textures, we can enjoy a good detox mask, a creamy cleanser, so skin stays supple, a smart serum oil to give the right nourishment, without layers of silicons and bad chemicals, an exfoliating lotion to prevent the usual greyness and a moisturizer rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants.
My personal ‘transitional skincare’ includes:
Sukin Cream Cleanser – It entered my collection last August, but since then I haven’t been talking about this, strangely. As it is a wonderful cleanser, especially if you have dryness or anti-aging concerns or your skin deserves extra care. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t feel greasy, nor leaves leftovers once washed out. It’s amazing.
REN Claryfing Toner A light exfoliant lotion, more than a ‘true’ toner, than doesn’t contain acids in a too high concentration, so that you can enjoy it everyday, even if your complexion is sensitive and reactive.
REN Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil – is a very high value for money product! The packaging is very essential and cheap, but what’s inside has the same properties of a top quality serum. Why oil in this season? Because it can enhance the inner resilience of your skin and be the right preparation for winter. I’ve been enjoying my first bottle of it since this summer and I’m more and more convinced it’s a wonderful pick.
Ole Henriksen Vitamin Plus creme – A moisturizer anyone with combination skin may like very much for its super light texture. After a serum oil I wouldn’t over-hydrate in any case, as most of the work has been already done. Just a tiny bit of this will be enough even for the most demanding skins.
Elemental Herbology Facial Detox Puryfing Mask –Very ‘herbaceous’ in smell and formula, which to me means natural and lovely, but if you girls are more in love with no scented or luscious scented masks this will be probably a no-no.
And you, have you switched to any transitional skincare lately? Are there any products you would suggest?
