The transitional period between Summer and Autumn always makes my skin feel irritated, break out and look lacklustre. I feel that I've come a lot more prepared this year with my nourishing moisturisers and blemish banishing cleansers, so today I am sharing with you five of my must have skincare products for this time of the year.
A physical exfoliator is essential for me at this time of the year as I tend to use them twice a week to get rid of any dry patches I have almost instantly as well as making my skin feel super clean too! The Pixi Peel and Polish* has been raved about on this blog before, but it's one of my favourites for helping to get my skin back into tip top condition as it's great to use in the morning as I find my foundation goes on a lot smoother.
The Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum* is the perfect addition to my routine as it is a great alternative if I don't want to use a manual exfoliation, but I need some extra help when it comes to perking up my complexion and smoothing the skin. This has a thick gel texture that sinks into the skin super quickly, but gets to work overnight, so wake up with your skin looking calmer and feeling softer.
Usually I reach for a face oil when my skin feels dehydrated, but the Fresh Deep Rose Serum* is a great alternative as it's lightweight, feels like water on the skin and still super nourishing. Although it's my second serum of my skincare routine, it feels and acts a lot different to the Glow Recipe offering and works great as an extra boost underneath my moisturiser.
Talking of moisturiser, the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream* has well and truly been promoted to holy grail league at the moment as it's saved my skin on several occasions. The ultra-thick, luxurious formula feels like it'll leave a heavy residue, but it just doesn't. It doesn't irritate my skin, in fact it sinks in quickly and I wake up with super soft and noticeable smoother complexion.
It doesn't stop there as there is an area that I tend to neglect the most and that's my lips! The Girl, Undiscovered Pink Skies* lip balm is great as it transforms into an oil upon application and makes my lips feel as good as new from the first swipe.
