All About Autumn: The Coffee Scrub's Checklist for Radiant Skin This Season
With crisp days upon us, most of us may feel like we’re prepared for the fall season the second we throw on our first cozy sweater, or scarf.
However, for anyone looking to hold on to that summertime radiance, a few extra steps may be in order. Let’s talk about a few beauty and skincare must-dos for autumn:
#1: Choose moisture-boosting ingredients for every step of the routine
As the barometer drops, so does moisture in the air, and the effects of this are experienced almost instantly by most skin types. Keeping your complexion hydrated and moisturized is the key to keeping dry, dull skin, and signs of aging at bay, so this time of year it’s extra essential to use products that replenish skin's natural moisture. Consider swapping out your body soap for an option like our Coffee Bars which use nourishing shea, coconut, and cocoa butter as base ingredients.
#2: Exfoliate to rejuvenate
A misconception when it comes to dealing with dry skin is that you don’t need to exfoliate, but in fact, exfoliating layers of dead skin is one of the best ways to prevent dry buildup. This will also prep your skin to absorb moisture from your other products, for a smooth and supple finish. For this step, we love Vanilla Coffee Scrub, which uses coffee grounds as a gentle exfoliant and infuses the skin with added beauty benefits.
#3: Throw on an extra layer of skincare
Layering up isn’t just for your fall wardrobe. Your skin needs extra protection on colder days, so autumn is the perfect time to level up your skincare rituals with a new hydrating serum, or a facial oil, which will help lock in much-needed moisture. You can also opt for thicker creams for the face and body, as these tend to provide more support compared to your lightweight summer lotions.
#4: Stay true to your SPF
Another beauty myth we’d like to bust is that you don’t need to wear sunscreen this time of year. The truth is that sun exposure and harmful UV rays can contribute to skin concerns 365 days per year. Even on the cloudiest days, it’s important to lather up with your favorite sun protection product if you want to prevent signs of aging, sun damage, discoloration, and other more serious skin conditions.
#5: Seek out extra protection with antioxidants
When it comes to ingredients that enhance your overall skin health and natural radiance factor, look no further than antioxidants. Year-round, antioxidants fight free radical damage, promote important repair processes, and reduce the impact of environmental aging. In other words, you’re going to want them in your skincare for the long-term. The good news? Our signature ingredient coffee is an amazing source of antioxidants. By adding it to your fall routine, alongside your favorite seasonal latte, you’ll be extra protected and good to glow!
