Fall is officially here! The weather is getting colder, you’ve switched up your maxi’s for chunky jumpers and you have bust out the riding boots. While getting fashionably ready for fall is important, it is also just as important to get your skin ready for the cooler season. Here are 6 of the best products to help you deal with whatever your skincare feat is – all for an affordable price.
For Tired and Dull Skin
Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, $10.99, Well.ca
If you feel like your skin looks more tired than you feel, then this is the cleanser for you. With a cool, tingling sensation, this oil-free cleanser will wake up your skin and help it look and feel refreshed. An added bonus for this product is that it is cream based, which is perfect if you want a cleanser that always also acts as a semi-moisturizer.
For Nightly Renewal
Nivea Pure & Natural Moisturizing Night Care, $9.97, Walmart.ca
I always remember my sister’s secret weapon for keeping her skin so smooth and clear: using Nivea moisturizer. Even to this day she still moisturizes with it every night and every morning and when they came out with this specific night cream, well, let’s just say it made her even happier. This moisturizing night cream is a part of their Pure and Natural line which is made of 95% naturally sourced ingredients and contains Aloe Vera and Argan Oil – two ingredients to help you achieve the best looking skin when you wake up.
For Sensitive Skin
Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm, $16, The Body Shop
When I first tried this product, it was intended as a make-up remover (which it is sold as), but as usual The Body Shop has created a product that conveniently doubles as a cleanser too. From the softness to subtle yet calming chamomile smell, this balm works wonders on my sensitive skin without drying it out and works even better on removing my tough mascara.
For Oily Skin
Deep Cleansing Herbal Clay Masque, $22, Aveda
For those who like to the idea of having a somewhat spa experience every once a week, then this product is for you. Described as being made up of a “unique blend of clay”, this masque is ideal for removing impurities and unclogging pores with its deep cleansers and with its smooth, moisturizing texture the clay absorbs excess oil making your complexion balanced.
For Soothing the Skin
St.Ives Green Tea Face Scrub, $4.99, Well.ca
If you like to drink green tea, you’ll definitely want to try this product! With natural green tea and olive oil and olive leaf extracts this oil-free face scrub is great for fighting blemishes and redness, which may occur due to the cold weather or sensitive skin. Another advantage of this product is its smooth texture and its green tea aroma, which pleasantly makes washing your face every day more enjoyable.
For Under the Eyes
Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Cream Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush, $23.47, Walmart.ca
For those of you who can’t give up their late nights and early mornings, Olay has an eye cream solution for those tired eyes of yours. Their innovative brush on eye cream helps reduce dark circles and fine lines, while also adding a bit of tint to brighten up the under eye area.
