seasonal skincare swaps

seasonal skincare swaps

As the seasons shift, so should your skincare.  

Much like nature, the change of season can wreak havoc on our skin, whether you have sensitive skin or not. Cold weather strips away our skin’s natural moisture, while hot summer days can lead to excess oil production. Adjusting your skincare routine can help maintain healthy radiant skin year-round.  

How should my skincare change in winter? 

Although our skin types don’t tend to change throughout the year, seasonal changes can impact how your skin behaves. During the winter months, cold temperatures and indoor heating can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, flakiness, and irritation.  

Using a rich skin rejuvenating moisturiser, like Wild Tomato Crème can help restore dry skin to having a healthy glow. Formulated with lycopene and chamomile, to help heal dry irritated skin. 

The luxuriously buttery texture melts into dehydrated, stressed skin to brilliantly restore and quench. It’s delicate enough for daily wear but thick enough to trap moisture and restore balance back into skin. 

Transform skin overnight with our sensitive-safe White Tea Phyto-Retinol Elixir. It brilliantly rejuvenates delicate skin to feel softer, smoother and visibly firmer. Bakuchiol stimulates skin cell turnover whilst white tea helps skin stay plump and smooth. A sun-safe retinol, with no harsh side-effects to the skin. (Plus, you can wear in the daytime!) 

When unhappy skin needs extra TLC, a repair-all balm will be your BFF. Nourish and protect skin whilst locking in moisture with Papaya SOS Marmalade. Rescue your winter skin by applying a thin layer of this “everything balm” to chapped lips, itchy skin, any dry patches, redness, literally anything! 

With botanical ingredients, like coconut, hemp and chia working together to hydrate and protect skin, whilst offering antibacterial and antifungal properties. 

Skincare hack: This all-in-one balm also doubles up as a balm cleanser. Papaya SOS Marmalade gently melts away all traces of impurities, all makeup and sunscreen without stripping much needed oils. 


Discover summer skin saviours  

Summer's heat and humidity can cause excess oil production, clogged pores, and increased sensitivity. As the temperature rises, let your skin glow, without unwanted shine.  Start and end the day by reviving and rehydrating skin. Our Herbal Face Tonic helps remove excess oil and balances the skin’s pH. Just 2-3 spritzes refreshes, revives and returns nutrients to the skin instantly. 

Oil balancing serums like Quandong Green Booster Serum will support a healthy complexion and improve irritated skin. Vitamin C-rich quandong helps encourage a youthful glow as hyaluronic acid famously keeps skin hydrated. It’s vast blend of plant-based ingredients help balance oils, even on acne-prone skin. A must-have summer smoothie for the skin! 

Like winter skin, summer skin also craves rejuvenation and hydration, we just opt for moisturisers that are a little lighter. Our Moringa All-beauty Crème is the perfect lightweight face cream that leaves skin with a satin plump finish - not greasy! Moringa detoxifies skin, to help prevent clogged pores and breakouts in the heat, whilst melissa extract calms inflammation and provides much needed antioxidants for the skin. 

Summer skincare tip: Store your favourite serums and moisturisers in the fridge to help cool skin or a much-needed pick-me-up when you’re feeling tired.
