Five Autumn Skincare & Bodycare Favourites

Autumn Skincare Favourites

| Five Autumn Skincare & Bodycare Favourites! |

Autumn is the epitome of cosiness and every evening I treat myself to a mini pamper session by slathering my body in nourishing creams and applying hydrating as well as clarifying products to my skin. Recently I've been reaching for five products that have become a staple in my skincare routine.

I begin my evening routine by removing my makeup and cleansing my face. My favourite type of cleanser to use is a cleansing milk and I recently stumbled upon a cheap but cheerful one. The Nivea Sensitive cleansing milk has been a welcomed addition my skincare routine as the formula is gentle and nourishing for the cold months. I use it as the second cleanser in my double cleanse routine and whilst it's not the best cleanser I've ever used, it does the job and the price makes my bank account happy!

My skin gets quite congested as a result of sugary treats around this time of year and the weather and central heating also wreak havoc on the condition of my skin. To combat this I've been using Hylamide Pore Flush* recently and this plant-based facial spray has been helping decongest my skin. When I first started using it I got two spots as the product was extracting the dirt from my pores. I think it has a refreshing plant-like scent that also has a hint of sweetness to it. I also think my skin looks a little less lacklustre and it hasn't dried out my skin, nor did it feel harsh either.

Another facial spray that's ideal for this time of year is Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist. The spray is formulated with numerous skin-loving ingredients such as linoleic acid, provitamin A and hyaluronic acid which promote healthy and hydrated skin. I apply it every morning and evening but if my skin is feeling more parched than usual I often spritz it a few times throughout the day without it interfering with my makeup.

My first bodycare favourite is one I discovered during the Summer and I've been reaching for it ever since. The Garnier Ultimate Blends body lotion contains a blend of oat milk which is known for its restoring properties as well as white almond cream which nourishes the skin, leaving it feeling soft. The hypoallergenic formula is also soothing and kind to my sensitive skin. It also helped revive my skin when it became dry and itchy after a reaction to suncream during the Summer.

When I want something a little bit more indulgent I reach for The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin body butter*. The quintessential Autumn scent always has me craving homebaked Autumnal treats and the rich, creamy formula is perfect for dry, parched skin but it still sinks into the skin fairly quickly so I can pop my jammies on straight away. The scent makes me feel oh so cosy and it's the perfect rainy evening treat! 

What are your favourite Autumn skincare & bodycare products?
