Jenny Nordic Skincare skincare tips for autumn

How to care for my skin in autumn?

  1. Your skin needs extra hydration in the autumn. The cooler and dryer weather sucks the water content from your skin and can leave it feeling dehydrated and irritated. Try taking care of your skin from the inside out - drink plenty of water and herbal teas. And nourish your body with vitamin-rich food and good oils.
  2. Choose a gentle, skin barrier-friendly cleanser. It might be obvious to say, but a gentle cleanser that restores the skin and helps strengthen the skin barrier is a must during the colder months. Oil cleansing has immense benefits, such as effectively lifting excess sebum from the pores and effortlessly cleansing makeup from the face but also helps protect the natural lipid layer on the skin and the good bacteria that live on the skin. Try Jenny Nordic Smooth Oil to Milk Cleanser for easy oil cleansing. You can also read our guide on oil cleansing to make the most out of it.
  3. Layer in extra hydration. During the colder months, your skin needs all the water you can bind in the skin. Start applying your skincare on damp skin - this helps seal in even more hydration to the skin and according to some studies it might even help with how other skincare products you use work. Jenny Nordic’s Rehydrate and Balance Beauty Essence is a perfect skin hydrator for the autumn as it helps strengthen and balance the skin barrier, hydrates deeply and offers antioxidant protection against the elements.
  4. Cocoon it all in with a high-quality oil serum. Applying an oil-based serum as the last step of your skincare routine helps seal all the hydration in and guarantees it won’t escape back out. Face oils help prevent water loss from the skin (can be called transepidermal water loss with fancier terms). This helps skin stay hydrated, moisturised and protected whatever the weather looks like outside. Jenny Nordic’s Glow and Revitalize Oil Serum has the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids, ceramides and vitamins to glow up the skin in the autumn. 
  5. SPF is still needed to protect the skin and prevent signs of premature ageing that the sun can cause.

Your skin thrives with less is more approach. Changing seasons don't mean you need to update your whole skincare shelf - it's more about adjusting to the needs of your skin. Adequate hydration and moisture on gently cleansed skin is a good place to start. You might be surprised to notice that's all your skin needs!
