It’s that time again! Today marks the first day of Autumn so it’s time for some brand-new seasonal blogs, first up, as you can see from the title is the ‘Autumn Skincare Essentials’. If you’re new here, I’m Sophie and since the start of the year beginning with Spring, I have been writing 2 blogs at the start of each season, one which is based on our Seasonal Essentials and another which is the best tips on how to take care of your skin seasonally - so stick around for the latter!
So, let’s (sadly) say goodbye to the warmer days and start getting our skin ready for the colder months to come.
At Sweet Cecily’s we like to make sure that everyone who reads our blogs knows their skin type because it’s such a vital piece of knowledge when it comes to buying skincare. This season we’ve chosen all 3 face masks because your skin has the possibility of changing from summer. In our ‘How to Take Care of your Skin in Autumn’ blog, we say that in summer your skin may become oilier, compared to colder months where it may appear drier. So, make sure to be using skincare products that also adapt to the changes of your skin, like our face masks where you can find that we have 3 - Sensitive, Normal & Oily! Each mask is catered to tackle different skin types using a range of French Kaolin clays.
Like I’ve just said above, in Autumn you may find that your skin becomes drier than it has been - like me! I have eczema and although this is something I experience all year round; I do find that it’s in the colder months when I have the worst flare ups. This is where this miracle cream comes in. The Soothing Skin Cream was formulated to help soothe dry and irritated skin, so this is a must for me in seasons such as Autumn and Winter. I always preach about this cream in blogs, but I would really recommend getting in touch with us for a little sample if you experience dry or flaky skin. It can be used on your face, in place of your normal moisturiser as well as being suitable for the rest of your body.

Next up is something we all tend to sometimes forget about and that’s hand care. When it gets cold all, we’re interested in is how many layers we need to be wearing, and we forget about other parts of our body that need a little extra TLC during these months too. Beth - who if you don’t know is also a member of the Sweet Cecily’s Team - finds that in the colder months, her hands become drier which she really cringes out over, so she uses our hand creams. Our Elderflower & Almond hand cream is a rich, hydrating cream which will help relieve already cracked and dry hands, or keep your hands from becoming in such condition.
When the colder mornings start drawing in, the air starts to get drier, which means so does your skin. So, start your day off right with a rich moisturiser which will keep you feeling hydrated all day. Our Almond & Avocado Face Cream is enriched with the right ingredients that you need, one of them being our skincare holy grail…Shea Butter - find out why here! Another main ingredient in this cream is Avocado Oil, which is rich in vitamins A, D and E, known to be deeply penetrating and nourishing to the skin…do I even need to continue?!
Unlike a lot of branded moisturisers, this cream is fragrance free, allowing it to be breathable for those with even sensitive skin. The only scent you get from this cream is those from the natural fixed oils that are in it.
