The leaves are changing colour, the temperatures are dropping and pumpkin spiced hot drinks are everywhere – autumn has officially arrived! While it’s instinctive to switch up your wardrobe at this time of year and trade in your summer mini dress for a cosy jumper, you should also think about adapting your skincare routine to the changing weather.
How Cold Weather Affects Your Complexion
Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed your skin feeling dry just a few hours after applying your moisturiser, or a few unwanted lines appearing around your eyes, or extra spots sprouting. These are just a few unfortunate effects of colder, drier and blusterier autumnal weather – particularly as your face gets the most exposure to these harsh conditions. Don’t worry though Glossies, we’ve got you covered! Here’s an autumnal skincare routine that will give your complexion its healthy summer glow back.

It’s affordable, great quality and sensitive-skin friendly – what’s not to love?
