Thankfully, the weather is beginning to cool, the long days are becoming shorter and summer is almost over. Just as cooler, dryer weather means extra layers of clothing, your skin may need some extra protection also. Some subtle changes will keep your skin clear and glowing ready for sweater weather.


During summer we focused more on sebum control. As we slip into fall, the air gets drier and makes your skin drier, duller and more prone to flaking. Indoor heating adds to this also. My suggestion is to begin exfoliating to slough away the top layer enabling your products to penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective. Make sure you’re not over-exfoliating as that can lead to sensitivities and redness by removing too much of the top layers – once a week should be plenty. 

REHYDRATING ROSE FACIAL POLISH  revitalizes, gently exfoliates and enriches normal skin types. With antioxidant rich milk thistle, cooling aloe vera and exfoliating wild rose seed powder, this weekly treatment removes everyday impurities and dead skin cells, to leave you with a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Most women moisturize their face, but many forget that it is just as important to moisturize their body. As temperatures drop, the want for a long hot shower increases.  Hot showers and baths weaken the protective layer of the epidermis (the top layer) meaning more moisture is lost at a quicker rate. The dry autumn air outside only exacerbates this and you might notice your skin is dry, flakey and itchy. 

Moisturize your skin with  WILD ROSE BODY LOTION for enhanced radiance and silkiness. This easily absorbed body lotion is formulated with organic wild rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil to intensely nourish the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and smelling wonderful!

With the hot weather fading away you may be drinking less water, but try to keep that water bottle close by and stay hydrated - so much of our skin's hydration comes from the inside. Studies has revealed amazing differences in the appearance of your skin based on water consumption. If you don't love to drink plain water then consider adding organic fruits, herbs or veggies like lemon, mint, or cucumber. Eat water-rich foods like melon. Or, of course, it is that time of year for curling up with a lovely cup of tea and taking the ubiquitous tea and sweater-hands selfie...

As autumn approaches and you add on extra layers of clothing, treat your skin the same way. Facial oils replenish your skin’s natural moisture levels while helping to protect it from future moisture loss. They’re useful in cold, dry weather when chilly winds and central heating may take a toll on your skin, or during the summer months when your skin may be feeling particularly sun-parched. 

A lot of people with oily or combination skin worry about adding an oil to their routine – make sure you’re using plant-based oils (stay away from mineral!) and essential oils as these won’t block the pores and will actually help balance sebum levels. Facial oils should be applied after toning and before moisturizing – 3-5 drops should cover the whole face and focus on areas that need a little more love (usually the cheeks and brow bone). I like to incorporate a little massage when doing this bit to get my circulation going and practice some self-care at the same time.

 For an extra dose of hydration, try adding a facial oil to your routine and choose an oil that will compliment your skin. Neals Yard Remedies has 3 amazing facial oils to choose from:

  • ROSE FACIAL OIL  is our best seller and it’s clear to see why – it’s a balancing, revitalizing boost for all skin types but especially for people with oily, combination, normal and sensitive skin.

  • Our award winning, skin-quenching,  ORANGE FLOWER FACIAL OIL  is most beneficial for those with very dry skin. It replenishes skin and helps to protect against premature aging.  With nourishing neroli oil, distilled from the blossom of the bitter orange tree, and a blend of omega essential fatty acids and antioxidant-rich botanical oils, it is excellent for dry skin of all ages.
  • REJUVINATING FRANKINCENSE FACIAL OIL  is suitable for all skin types but especially those wanting to target fine lines and wrinkles due to the frankincense and omega-rich oils in the blend. This oil has also been clinically proven to moisturize for up to 12 hours so no need to worry about extra application during the day!


As the summer draws to an end, our lives usually become a little busier. Whether it’s school, work or just adjusting to a new schedule, try not to let stress build. We all know that stress is damaging to the body but the rise in stress hormones (such as cortisol) can actually make an appearance on our skin too – high cortisol levels make the skin produce more sebum and can accelerate the aging process – making fine lines, wrinkles and age spots more visible. 

So as fall weather approaches, make sure you’re taking time out to relax and pamper yourself... your skin will thank you.
