Having a good skincare routine in place during this time of the year is essential for me as a way to battle breakouts and keep dry patches at bay. The Aesop Fabulous Face Oil has been a must-have of mine for a couple of years on the trot now as it's a great multitasker that intensely nourishes and can easily be used under makeup too.
Just like in the Summer when hair fever plays havoc with my undereyes, during the transitional period, I find that my eyes water more as they slowly get used to the colder weather. This causes them to feel slightly more dry than usual and The Ordinary's Caffeine Solution* helps to soothe them with its lightweight formula.
For blemishes, I have several different products that help me out including The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid* which not only banishes spots, but slightly exfoliates the skin too, killing two birds with one stone.
The Zoella Shower Shake Body Wash has been a go-to of mine recently, not only to scent to the skin, but to shave my legs with ease too. If you're a little lazy when it comes to applying body moisturiser, then this is a great time saver as you pop it on the shower and simply just wash it off after a few minutes.
Bodycare tends to be something I don't often switch up; yes I tend to reach for lighter formulas during the warmer weather and heavier ones for the colder seasons, but I'm a creature of habit when it comes to the lotions and potions I like. Although I've been using Lush Sleepy nightly and resisting the urge to slather myself in the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Souffle, it's the Ted Baker Blush Pink* offering that I've been drawn to. It's lightly scented, can easily be layered with other fragrances and is great when you just want a delicate scent to follow you.
I've been loving using a hair mask before shampooing as a way to get as much moisture into my locks as possible. I recently dug out the Sachajuan Hair Repair offering and I'm so glad I did because my tresses feel soft, smooth and less damaged even after one use. During this time of the year I find that my hair gets drier, rather than greasier, so it's easy to neglect my hair, therefore hair oil remains a firm must-have for me.
