The first thing I did was switch up my Micellar water. I prefer the Garnier Micellar Oil Infused cleansing water during the autumn and winter seasons as it is gentle on the skin but still gets rid of the grime and makeup from the day.
To boost the hydration even further, I kept The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid in my routine as has been a huge help recently while I was figuring out how to keep my skin plumped and hydrated during the past few weeks. A little goes a long way and it works a treat if you have dehydrated skin.
Then as I mentioned I recently converted to using oils as a way to keep hydration locked in. I often take my makeup off early on in the evening so I find this helps. The first in my lineup is the Aesop Lucent Facial Concentrate*. This is an oil-based serum to help boost and plump the skin. I especially like this on days when it is I feel my skin has been flagging as it picks it backs up.
If you read my recent review of The Ordinary, I mentioned The Cold Pressed Rose Hip Oil. When I first purchased it, I knew it would be something I would use as the weather changed and that is exactly what has happened. The oil sinks into the skin after a couple of minutes and you are not left feeling a greasy mess which is a personal win for me.
And to lock in all the hydration the newest addition to my skincare routine is the Boots Botanics Hydrating Boost Lotion. I have only been using it for a few days but so far I am really enjoying it. It is lightweight but moisturising and hydrating without feeling like a sticky lotion.
The Autumn skincare shake-up has gotten me incredibly excited about skincare again. How do you switch up your skincare routine?
