We’ve been excitedly awaiting autumn since the sticky, humid heat hit Australia way back in November. As much as we love the long summer days, they’re not exactly conducive to a foolproof beauty routine — makeup melts off, hair becomes untameable and oil control is a tough task.
7 Essentials for Your Autumn Beauty Checklist
Thankfully, March signals the beginning of the cooler months, and we’re incredibly excited. Autumn brings a need to make a few switch-ups in your beauty routine, whether that means transitioning to skincare for dry cold, hydrating your hair more or opting for bolder, darker makeup shades.
Keep on reading to discover the autumn beauty essentials everyone should have on their checklist.
1.An emollient moisturiser
You should be using moisturiser year-round no matter your skin type, but when the colder months hit, it’s time to step things up a notch. If you prefer a lightweight formula in summer, autumn is your chance to transition into something that feels a little richer on the skin, and has emollient (skin-smoothing) properties. Even if you have oily skin, your complexion can be dehydrated, so don’t skimp on this important step!
Our pick is the Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream, which is packed with botanical actives and essential fatty acids. It works to soothe the skin, meaning any dry or irritated patches will feel calmer upon application. It’s also ideal if you have mature skin, as it draws on peptide technology to smooth fine lines.
