Before creating a skincare line, I thought winter meant duller, drier skin. However, maintaining glowing skin isn't a one-size-fits-all endeavor—shifting our skincare routine in alignment with the seasons is the key to ensuring a radiant complexion all year round.
Our Seasonally Active Serums are about reconnecting with nature—the cycle of life—on an emotional level and looking at what's going on with the skin at that time.
When temps drop, and we crank indoor heat, moisture in your skin evaporates faster, pulling moisture from the lipid barrier of your skin. With less hydration, the turnover of skin cells is impaired, and they start to clump together—which people can experience as dry, flaky, or even scaly skin.
Alternatively, when the weather is hot and humid outside, your skin ramps up its sebum production. Too much sebum causes over-dilated pores and can lead to acne, rosacea, pigmentation, and even wrinkles.
Each season also carries a unique energy—offering an opportunity to nourish our bodies in alignment with the cycle of nature—revealing truly radiant skin year-round.AutumnAutumn is a time to purify and release, letting go and eliminating toxins to make space for newness. I select the best age-defying and clarifying ingredients to help the skin renew from summer damage (i.e., wrinkles and hyperpigmentation) and prepare skin for cooler temperatures.
WinterIn winter, our bodies need rest and replenishment. The winter serum is a balanced blend of omegas, sterols, and ceramides, a perfect formula for replenishing moisture without resulting in an oil that's too heavy. I also layer in a nurturing blend of essential oils to boost vitality and keep skin looking smooth, plump, and glowing.
Spring Spring is associated with new life and beginnings. It's the perfect time to cleanse and decongest the skin. I hand blend the spring serum using the finest ingredients known for their age-defying, antioxidant, balancing, and brightening qualities so your complexion radiates new vitality and clarity.
Summer is the fire element's peak, with its long, hot days. Warmer months require light botanical oils with calming antibacterial and antioxidant properties that won't clog your skin but can penetrate deeply to help heal scarring, purify your skin, and regulate sebum production. I use botanicals packed with vitamin C, vitamin B3 (niacinamide), and natural retinol to help you achieve a healthy and radiant summer glow.
