Assuming this isn't your first Michigan autumn, you'll notice the needs of your skin are different as we change seasons.
Transition times allow us to maintain balance. We tend to think of spring as an opportunity to clean out, detox and get ready for the season ahead -- but we overlook fall. With autumn, we have a chance to clean house again and get ready for a more dormant season.
As we move into a dryer season where our houses are heated with forced air, and the defroster vent blows that heat directly onto our faces, you may want to consider switching to a cream-based cleanser.
Skin nourishing oils that are liquid at room temperature, like the powerhouse of skin-loving oils by Under Aurora are a good choice especially in fall and winter.
Healthy skin is moist and slightly cool to the touch. To better absorb the Facial Oils, exfoliate 1-2 times a week. Pay special attention to the areas along the rim of the face: hair line, jawline nose and chin. Resist the temptation to over do it - don't over balance, damaging the fragile acid mantle that protects the skin.
