Hey, It´s the ingredient freak right here, I hope you are doing well!
So the past years I´ve been really into the pure minimalistic and clean clean skincare and body products. And let´s be honest they can be hard to find sometimes. However, I came over this Scandinavian skincare line by Maria Åkerberg only to realize her products are so clean and where exactly what I was looking for. All organic and are focused on the power from plants!
Anyway, I picked out some of my favorites which I thought where perfect for fall. And with that, I thought I would share my top three tips for your fall body care routine.
Switch your body wash to shower oil
Now that it´s getting colder outside our skin will need more moisture. Only switching your body wash to a shower oil instead will make it a huge difference in keeping the skin moisturized and smooth. And it comes with some other benefits like intense hydration and is protective of environmental factors like a bacterial infection.
Exfoliating is the best way to keep away dry flaky skin. But there are more benefits to it that need to be said.
Exfoliating unclogs pores and prevents body acne, boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, increases cell turnover, evens skin tone and stimulate collagen synthesis.
And after exfoliating, it helps the rest of your skincare products penetrate deeper into your skin, which means greater results.
Dry brushing before a shower is a great way to exfoliate too!
Switch your moisturizer
So now that we are transitioning from summer to fall it will be a good idea to go from lightweight body lotion to a more ticker cream, preferably body butter of some kind and then have a body oil over that to seal in the moisture.
One of my favorite products from Maria Åkerberg must be the Shea Balm, only because it´s the best product for any type of dryness. It´s very versatile and can be used for anything, I like to use it on my daughter too.
When I was pregnant I used shea butter on my stomach to help keep the stretch marks away, and it was the best thing I ever did!
So in my opinion shea balm would be a great moisturizer now for fall. However, I always like to have a lighter alternative like the body lotion and then put the body oil on top. These specific ones I have chosen are a set (called The Royal Set), it´s a luxurious blend that focuses on toning and suppleness in the skin. Just an extra little boost for the colder months ahead!
