the autumn/winter 2017 skincare edit

It’s a skin thing…

It’s most certainly no secret that looking after my skin has been a big priority for me this year. Turning thirty has come with the some definite changes in my skin; I’m a lot more ‘combination’ during the Summer months, and my face feels like it dries out a lot more in the Autumn & Winter months. I don’s really subscribe to the current trend of ‘Anti Aging’ in skincare, but I do definitely believe in being mindful and proactive of skin changes as I get older.

Having tried a LOT of new skincare this year, I wanted to
put together an edit of my favourites that are going to be especially great in
Autumn & Winter. It was super difficult, but I managed to narrow it down to three in each category! I also wanted to give a quick recommendations of who I think each would be suited to most… Here we go!
