Autumn has arrived and I’ve been enjoying the foliage and humid scents of wet earth. Fall brought rain and relief to fire ravaged Sonoma County. It’s time to nurture ourselves and each other, friends and strangers alike.
Rosemira skincare is year-round but also seasonal, and though we carry all our products at all times because many of you don’t like to alter your routine once you’ve found a good balance, I suggest alternating products with the seasons. Your skin will be nurtured and continue to regenerate if you do. Akin to a macrobiotic diet where the percentage of root vegetables vs leafy vegetables changes with the seasons, so can your skincare regimen. To help you get started, I’m sharing my favorite skincare selections for this time of year. They’re good for all skin types.
If you’re a lover of Foaming Cleansers, you may have heard me recommend alternating their use with non-drying cleansers. This is doubly important in fall and winter, especially for Dry or Mature Skin. Aloe & Pink Grapefruit Gel Cleanser will serve you well as a morning Cleanser. As a night time cleanser Pineapples & Cream Cleansing Milk is effective and also removes makeup. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and smells like an orchard in bloom. If you believe you can’t live without our Moroccan Red Rose Exfoliating/Foaming Cleanser, make sure to integrate your moisturizing tools: Toners, Serums and Moisturizing Creams.
Spring and Summer found us alternating between Spring Flowers Calming Toner and Citrus Melody Balancing Toner. Now with the cooling weather, it’s time to switch to Roses in Bloom Hydrating Toner. Apply after cleansing and follow up with a Serum and Moisturizing Cream. Toners also function to drive ingredients in Serums and Moisturizing Creams deeper into your skin. Let’s pay extra heed to the adage: Tone, Tone, Tone and Moisturize, Moisturize… you get my drift.
Serums do more than moisturize. I consider them your treatment phase-the equivalent of Skin Supplements. This is also the reason I recommend
you keep alternating your Serum use.
My extensive Serum Category affirms that I don’t believe one Serum is perfect for everyone and at all times. Whatever Serum you’ve been using throughout the Summer, it’s time to consider a change.
I suggest trying one of our new
“Super-Serums” (à là Superfoods). Seaweed & Me Youth Serum – Fine Lines, Deep Wrinkles or Dragon’s Blood-Firm & Repair Serum. Both are rich in Anti-Oxidants, and Vitamins C & E. The former Serum is a bit heavier, with a high concentration of granular Red Seaweed extract and a deep Floral Scent. If you’re drawn to lightly scented products, Dragon’s Blood is a better fit. Rich in antioxidants, it’s effective in treating stubborn wrinkles and sagging skin. Keep in mind that when I speak of fragrance, I don’t mean any added synthetic fragrance. We never add those to our
products. Rosemira scents are always the result of the interaction
between the various base ingredients and the rich concentration of
Moisturizing Creams are an important component of a basic year-round skincare regimen. In the drier months of fall and winter, using a rich Moisturizing Cream at least twice a day is essential. I recommend
Divine Honey Rose Replenishing Cream — light yet rich and easily absorbed, it’s a great day cream. For night time use, our most popular and beloved Bella Rose Anti-Wrinkle Cream or the Rich Moisturizing Cleanser & Night Cream are great staples.
I also want to mention our new Blue Bliss Beauty Balm. It’s so new we don’t even have a photo, but it’s selling like hot cakes. I recommend using this balm at night during fall and winter. A face balm is a new concept for me. I was concerned it might be clogging or too oily, and although it’s definitely rich, I don’t find these concerns to be an issue.
It’s a great Balm for all skin types.
Please note that as a result of several years of bad harvests, true Vanilla Absolute has become almost impossible to procure and is mostly unavailable from any reputable essential oil supplier, and when available, its cost has skyrocketed. Blue Bliss has a high concentration of Vanilla, thus it may be in short supply until a new and better Vanilla harvest comes in. If you’re already a lover of this product I suggest stocking up.
The purpose of my recommendations is to help you personalize your skincare routine. You can change and rotate products for a complete diet of nutrients and an experience that is always new.
