I don't know about you, but with the cold weather comes dry, flaky skin. If you already have dry skin, then the cold weather is a nightmare. Over the past month, I've been looking for new skin care products to help keep my skin looking and feeling hydrated and fresh into the fall. Here are a few of my favorites that not only have a beautiful fragrance, but also are easy to apply. 

1. Femmue

If you've never heard of botanical cosmetics, then you need to hop on the bandwagon. Botanical cosmetics contain ingredients that are derived from plants (herbs, flowers, fruits, seeds, etc.) Doesn't that sound divine?!

Femmue, a botanical skin care brand, focuses on the healing and reinvigorating characteristics of flowers. The brand is well-known for the use of camellia as the base for many of its products. 

Femmue's line contains a variety of products from flower-infused face masks to moisturizers. Each product serves a different purpose, but the outstanding benefits of camellia extract such as protecting skin from environmental stress and blue light run through the entire collection.

Since the semester recently started back up, you might be neglecting your skin care routine more than you should. That's definitely not the path we want to go down, especially as we head into the fall.

My favorite product from the collection is the Dream Glow Mask. I'm always looking for a quick and easy face mask that can provide a natural and healthy glow. Femmue's products are great for not only cleansing and moisturizing the skin, but can help you become more mindful with its aromas and smooth textures. 

2. Pumpkin & Spice

Tired of pumpkin spice lattes but still want to enjoy this fan-favorite seasonal aroma? Pumpkin & Spice combines pumpkin seed oil and natural spices into their products for an enhanced benefit. 

I've never heard of pumpkin seed oil prior to coming across the brand, but there are more benefits than I thought. Pumpkin seed oil contains antioxidants which help prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fatty acids which work to keep the skin moisturized and zinc which has been seen to reduce breakouts. 

Do you ever have one of those days where your skin just feels dirty? It's hard to explain, but your pores feel clogged and it's not pleasant. My favorite skin care product from Pumpkin & Spice is the Facial Scrub Exfoliator. This product works to cleanse and detoxify the skin leaving it feeling fresh and smooth in minutes. 

3. Cannuka 

You probably know that I'm obsessed with manuka honey for all of it's health properties and now you can experience those externally with Cannuka. The use of manuka honey in Cannuka is beneficial for the skin due to its amino acids and it humectant properties. As a humectant, manuka honey draws on moisture from the air and pulls it into skin to provide a natural, dewy glow.

Especially in the fall when you aren't able to get that natural sun-kissed glow, Cannuka can provide radiance and vibrance to keep you looking fresh all year long. 

From body cream to lip balm, Cannuka has a wide variety of products to choose from. I love the brands Calming Eye Balm because as someone who doesn't get a lot of sleep, I'm always looking for ways to make sure my under eyes look at healthy and vibrant as possible. 

Now that you know about some of my favorite skin care brands, go try them for yourself!
