Season-proof skincare essentials for healthy and glowing complexion
I usually associate Autumn with colder windy days and therefore, dry, dull skin. I am a firm believer that during Autumn and Winter we need to take extra care of our skin, nails and hair. winter skincare tips
Therefore I tend to transition my skincare routine each season and especially in Autumn/ Winter. My skin is in desperate need of hydration and moisture during this time of the year. Therefore, this season, I have gotten into beauty products that are gentle and deep hydrating on my sensitive skin.
Autumn and Winter Skincare Tips/ product recommendations
Caring for my skin and getting it back to life after the summer holidays is priority and vital in my daily routine. I have found the right products and set up a routine to help me achieve dewy, supple skin.
The face wash and toner
Urban Veda is a brand I was unfamiliar with until I got sent some samples to try out. I have been using it for couple of weeks and it is one of the best natural skincare brands I have ever come across.
I love the idea behind the brand! Urban Veda has created something called “Whats’s your Dosha”. This is a questionnaire to help you choose the right product for your skin type. This way you can make the most of your products.
The word “Dosha” is the Ayurvedic term to describe the physical and emotional tendencies within the mind and body.
According to my “Dosha” the best range to suit my skin needs is the Reviving range. I use Daily Reviving Facial Wash and Reviving Hydrating Toner every morning. winter skincare tips
Urban Veda Daily Reviving Facial Wash*is made of Rose Damask oil and 9 botanics restorative flower water. It also contains Rosehip oil, which combined with the water, help restoring dehydrated skin. This face wash contains detoxifying Geranium and Clove, traditionally used to help clarify and tone skin.
I love the delicate rose scent in the morning. My skin feels nourished and dewy. The organic Pomegranate, Borage and Jasmine also help to uplift and restore my dull skin in Autumn.
I use Urban Veda Reviving Hydrating Toner *after I wash my face in the morning and evening. This is great product for all skin types made of many natural ingredients. It ticks all my boxes of what a toner should do to enhance skin complexion. This hydrating toner improved my skin elasticity and made my skin appear more dewy in the morning. It is super gentle and great for sensitive skin; the aloe vera soothes irritated skin. It contains provitamin B5, vitamin C and Amino acids. Urban Veda Reviving Hydrating Toner is a must have in my daily skincare routine. It is a Award Winner in 2017 and I highly recommend it.
The face serum
Rodial Stem Cell Booster Oil is my all time favourite serum. I have a strong attachment to this oil because it is extra light, but it deeply hydrates my skin. Therefore it can be used all year round and honestly, it does wonders. This serum instantly absorbes into my skin without leaving a greasy feeling.

Radial Stem Cell Booster Oil contains anti-oxidants, omega 3, 6 and 9 and vitamins A, B5, C and E. It hydrates and nourishes my skin, giving it elasticity and dewy healthy look.
The face cream and overnight mask
It is fun when you discover new beauty brand and you end up falling in love with it. I tried Caolion* for the first time few weeks ago and it instantly perked up my skin. The Pore Tightening Bounce Cream and Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask come in a set.
The day face cream has light texture and delicate scent. It is great for all skin types. It deeply moisturises, but it is very lightweight and it sinks into my skin instantly. The Pore Tightening Bounce Cream feels almost like a makeup primer after applied. It contains niacin-amide, rosemary and sweet almond oil for glow-y complexion. winter skincare tips
I use Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask every night before bed. It works as a night cream but much richer and more beneficial. This everyday mask gives my skin cooling sensation. It has very unique texture; the consistency is thick, but it bounces back once I scoop out some of the product (like a memory foam). I leave the mask overnight and in the morning my skin feels smooth and hydrated. It balances the oils around my t-zone and improves my skin elasticity.
The pamper session
You may have already noticed that two things catch my eyes lately- organic skincare and anything that deep hydrate my skin. Most of my products in my daily routine are free of parabens, sulfates and chemicals that can be harsh on the skin.
Having face masks in my beauty stash is essential, especially during colder months. Using sheet masks is one of my favourite steps in calming and distressing my skin. I use ORGAID face masks* once a week and they help me revive my unhappy skin back to health. The brand is fairly new on the market and the people behind it has created three sheet masks for healthy, glowing complexion.
- Greek Yoghurt and Nourishing Organic Sheet Mask
- Anti-Aging and Moisturising Organic Sheet Mask
- Vitamin C and Revitalising Organic Sheet Mask
ORGAID sheet masks are free of any chemical preservatives and they are very gentle on the skin. I spoil my sensitive, dehydrated skin with Greek Yoghurt and Vitamin C sheet mask most of the days. They are my favourite! winter skincare tipsTop 5 season-proof skincare essentials for healthy and glowing complexion.Click To Tweet
Greek Yoghurt sheet mask has Organic Botanicals to soothe skin, while Pro-Vitamin B5 and Allantoin tighten it. My skin feels smooth and calm after each use.
Vitamin C sheet mask provides potent antioxidant protection to keep firm and youthful skin. It contains orange peel and pomegranate to boost skin glow and healthy appearance. After I have indulged myself for 20 min using this mask, my skin looks dewey
Anti-Aging sheet mask contains vitamin B3 which reduces skin ageing and Aloe Vera to calm, soothes skin. It also has witch hazel to help reduce blemishes and hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin. All of the ORGAID sheet masks has plenty of serum soaked into them. There is more serum in the actual packaging so this gives me the ability to reuse my mask. This saves me money and I get to enjoy the product once again. winter skincare tips
The daily exfoliator
This time of the year is essential to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells. For a sensitive skin person like me, finding gentle exfoliator is a real mission. I have been using Urban Veda Reviving Exfoliating Facial Polish* for few weeks and my skin benefits 100% from it. A delicate yet effective exfoliator, Urban Veda polish is the perfect winter product to clear up your skin and leave it smooth and fresh looking. It has creamy texture and it very hydrating on the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, especially dry/sensitive skin.
