We all love the way our skin looks and feels in the summer! It is so fresh, glowy and healthy, which I think can be largely attributed to our eating habits. Throughout the summer, we tend to eat more local fruits and veggies which provide all of vitamins and nutrients our bodies need in order to ensure our skin and hair looks healthy. While during the colder time of the year, we like to choose comfort food as well as warm and satisfying dishes. Our skin usually looks tired, dull and definitely needs a lot more help.
I believe that we are what we eat and put on our skin. Even though popular fall foods can help provide skin with a radiant glow since they are packed with skin-nourishing nutrients like beta-carotenes, found in carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes, it is also crucial to reach out for vitamins and antioxidants our skin needs all year around. To keep my summer skin through fall, I have incorporated to my skincare routine some amazing beauty products enriched with Vitamin C, pomegranate extract and banana benefits that I can recommend to anyone who is looking for skincare saviours this season!
Rodial Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Pads
I remember I used to use cleansing pads as a teenager, but I have no idea why I completely forgot how quick and convenient they are! Recently, I started using Rodial Brightening Cleansing Pads to give my skin a daily and easy brightening boost. These cleansing pads contain a blend of Vitamin C to brighten and replenish dull looking complexion, Fruit AHA acids to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, as well as Salicylic Acid to tighten pores while firming and toning the skin. They leave my skin feeling throughly cleansed and brightened. I usually use them twice a day – in the morning as they are also a great way for me to ensure that my skin is smooth and purified before applying makeup as well as in the evening to transform my tired and dull skin to youthful looking.
Korres Pomegranate Skincare Line
The whole Pomegranate line from Korres is one of my favourite (and super aesthetically appealing) skincare collections ever! All of the products are specially formulated to mattify and pore-minimize, perfect for oily and combo skin types like mine.
Starting with Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-up Removing Wipes For Face And Eyes, these oil-free face wipes remove make-up, dirt and oil while also providing skin with mattifying, toning, pore-minimizing and moisturizing benefits. Infused with pomegranate extract and the softening, moisturizing properties of vitamin E, these facial cleansing wipes remove even the most stubborn face and eye make-up (including waterproof mascara), making them the perfect make-up removing wipes. I really enjoy them since they don’t irritate my sensitive skin or make my eyes itchy. They are perfect for on-the-go cleansing or when you are too tired to wash your face, but don’t want to go to sleep with your make-up on.
Next to the Pomegranate Toner, which is made with pomegranate extract, 15% pomegranate water, and natural active ingredients for pore-minimizing, mattifying, and clarifying. I think that my skin is addicted to this product because whenever I don’t use it, I can tell that something is missing. This product makes my skin feel balanced and appear more matte.
When it comes to Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturizer, I wish I discovered it earlier. It is a pore-minimizing and natural moisturizer for oily skin, that delivers immediate and lasting hydration while balancing oily or combination skin. This unique lightweight cream-gel moisturizer is formulated with a blend of 15% pomegranate water, pomegranate extract, salicylic acid and panthenol. This product does so many amazing things to my face! It leaves my skin soft, hydrated and balanced while providing a matte finish and reducing any redness.
Finally, Pomegranate AHAs & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask is a natural resurfacing face mask powered by glycolic acid and pomegranate grains and extracts to purify the skin and minimize the appearance of pores. If you love face masks, this one is a must!
OLEHENRISKEN Banana Bright Eye Crème
A staple in the beauty world, OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Eye Crème with collagen and Vitamin C brightens, targets fine lines, smoothes and firms. Inspired by the makeup artists’ must-have—’banana powder’—this subtly sunny cream contains special pigments to instantly brighten and colour-correct the eye area. But that’s not all, I have also noticed that it creates a smooth, well-rested canvas and improves my concealer wear. It is definitely the best eye cream I have ever tried!
