As the leaves turn, the air crisps, and the harvest moon rises, we welcome Autumn. This season of change and reflection asks us to slow down from the movement of full summer days. During transitions like this, our bodies and minds often call for extra support to adapt.
In autumn, skin is often recovering from excessive sun exposure, increased dryness and dehydration, sensitivity and sometimes unexpected fluctuations like breakouts or flare-ups. Autumn skin asks us to deeply nourish our skin, and to reintroduce the simple daily ritual we may have lost in the heat of summertime.
Autumn skin needs deep nourishment, calming hydration and serious moisture.
Thick, rich Pomegranate Repair Serum is especially welcomed by skin that experiences exacerbated dryness during autumn and winter. This nutritional powerhouse is both nutrient-dense and nutrient-diverse with a unique complex of essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It supports barrier-function, softens, calms, rejuvenates, and minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage. It is one of our first choices for dry, thinning, over-processed and/or troubled skin.
Rose Geranium HydroSoul is always appropriate, but especially helpful during transition periods because of its ability to help balance out the skin, no matter what it is experiencing. Skin too oily, too dry, or affected by a hormonal pendulum? Rose Geranium HydroSoul is the answer. Mist frequently.
Begin and end your day with gentle, rhythmic facial massage, immersed in the fragrant and healing embrace of nature. This nutrient-rich oil cleanser features sunflower, avocado, castor and jojoba oil to thoroughly wash away impurities without stripping the skin of its protective hydrolipid barrier. The process of cleansing with oil is centered around the combination of oil, facial massage and a steamy cloth, and is an ancient, simple and restorative way to get a magically deep, yet non-invasive cleanse ideal for sensitive, dry, combination, oily, mature or balanced skin.
Imagine yourself standing in a rich and vibrant forest. Let the sweet, woody aroma of Vetiver Hinoki Body Oil soften your mind, traveling down your body until you are calm and still. In addition to nourishing skin, daily body oiling can increase circulation, as well as drop the body into a state of deep relaxation, clarity and groundedness. Vetiver Hinoki Body Oil can also be used as a deep yet gentle facial cleanser and make-up remover. Its multi-functionality makes it a wonderful go-to when skin is craving simplicity.
While autumn skin care focuses largely on recovering from the effects of summer, it is also about preparing skin for the cold, dry winter to come.
The best thing you can do for your skin isdaily application of Oil Serum & HydroSoul. After this step, one of our favorite techniques for creating truly moisturized skin is to seal in the lush moisture and hydration created through Oil & Water application with an occlusive layer, like Whipped Shea Butter or one of our portable Balms.
Our Face Balms are best for dry & dehydrated skin, skin that likes simplicity or skin with a compromised hydrolipid barrier from possible overuse of exfoliants and acids, but they are friendly for all skin. This simple, sealing layer provides an all-over face moisturizer, and they’re safe to use around the eye area too.
This creamy balm is nourishing, protective, regenerative and soothing and can be used not just around the eye area, but all over the face for an extra layer of protection for dry and irritated skin.
These multifunctional butters soothe, protect, and lock in hydration and moisture while comforting dry or sensitive skin. This final layer seals in the beautiful hydration you created with Oil & Water and prevents transepidermal water loss, while softening, nourishing, and protecting skin.
As we move closer to cooler and darker days and nights, we often spend less time outside and therefore less time interacting with plants and the natural world. Yet the body still longs for those connections. The transition into the cold and dark seasons is one of the most important times you can incorporate botanical fragrance into your daily ritual.
Vetiver Hinoki Perfume is our favorite for awakening and uplifting in this transitional time. Vetiver roots and japanese cypress wood synergized by sweet orange peel. Warm, sweet woods and roots.
