Your Best Fall Skincare Routine

September 19, 2020

Lavender Cold Cream | C&Co.® Handcrafted Skincare

Now that fall is officially here, it is time to switch up your skincare routine to match the season.

With a decrease in daily temps it is evermore essential that you begin to introduce a richer hydrator as your topmost layer of protection. It is equally important to make sure that you have a solid weekly exfoliant in place when you make this addition to your routine.

The overall theme is that we want to assist with the proper absorption of rich, hydrating creams while encouraging a healthy turnover so these products have a chance to make it to the dermis to actually work. We also want to make sure that we select a product that is formulated with a heavier barrier preventing the parching of skin through transepidermal water loss (TEWL) as the temperatures begin to dip.

Keep in mind that winter skin prep should begin now. It is easier to prevent dermal dehydration than it is to catch up in the middle of winter when the air is so cold and skin is extra delicate.

If you're following along with our products, we recommend to incorporate our Lavender Cold Cream 2-3 times a week on top of our nutrient dense serum. Apply a pea-sized amount for face, neck and chest by dabbing the product on skin and connecting the dots to blend.
