As much as we don’t want to admit it, summer is over. The evident change in season signals a transition from lightweight staples to more rich, luxurious creams and serums or ampoules. This is the time to pile on your products for that much-needed moisture!
With autumn upon us, days are shorter and colder. You might even feel that your skin gets easily dehydrated with the low humidity in the air and the constant chill in the air. This calls for an upgrade on your current skincare routine!
Don’t worry, you don’t need to stash away all of your current products; it’s important to modify these and make a change here and there. It’s also time to incorporate hero ingredients like hyaluronic acid and honey propolis into your current arsenal, which are known to deliver hydration to skin.
Here’s a beginner-friendly guide to help transition your current routine to one fit for autumn.
Tip #1: Pile on those products!
Don’t be intimidated to incorporate more layers into your routine. Adding extra steps may feel tedious, but it doesn’t really take much time to lather on all your products—a few minutes is enough!
Adding more than a single layer of your hydrating toner is highly recommended, and it feels weightless on skin! Try the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner, which is a nourishing solution for dehydrated skin. It packs a punch with 91.3% Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract, which rejuvenates the complexion while boosting its moisture level and repairing damaged skin. The essence-like toner absorbs fast into skin, not to mention it’s non-irritating and fragrance-free, too!
Tip #2: Add a serum and/or ampoule into your routine.
If you haven’t yet, it’s time to add an essence (a supercharged serum with active ingredients) and/or an ampoule (a highly concentrated special treatment) to your arsenal of products. These products are formulated to penetrate deeper into skin for maximum results. Shop Meekah’s diverse collection here.
For starters, incorporate products made with superstar ingredient, honey propolis, in your skincare routine to double the hydration. It’s a powerful ingredient to regenerate and calm irritated and sensitized skin, too. Protect your skin with the holy grail status COSRX Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule, an intensive caring ampoule made with 83% Black Bee Propolis Extract to help increase the skin’s ability to absorb moisture. The hardworking product also leaves a natural glow for lit-from-within skin!
Tip #3: Seal in the moisture with a sheet mask!
If you want to maximize the effects of your products, seal it in with a moisturizing sheet mask. Layer a sheet mask after your full night routine or even do it midday to perk you up for your next Zoom meeting. Choose from sheet masks infused with good-for-skin ingredients to address different skin concerns. You’re bound to find a favorite or two!
