Autumn Skincare Routine

Donkey milk, autumn skincare.


As summer gives way to autumn, we begin changing our wardrobes and haircare… it’s important to do the same for your skincare routine! With this cooler, harsher weather comes drier skin and more frequent breakouts… but, never fear! We have culminated the perfect list of how to tweak your summertime skincare to suit the cooler months.

Although it can be daunting to introduce and experiment with new products, harsher weather requires a more intense skincare regime. All skincare routines, regardless of the climate, consist of a basic structure that aims to make sure your products are absorbed into the skin efficiently…


  1. Cleanser
  2. Topical Treatments
  3. Serum
  4. Moisturiser


As the seasons change, so does your skin and the care it needs. During the warmer seasons your skin produces larger amounts of sebum and requires deep cleansing to counteract the build-up of sweat, oil and product.

In cooler months humidity levels decrease and the skin becomes ‘dried out’, meaning it is time to switch to a gentler, more hydrating cleanser. Hydrating cleansers are able to wash away dead skin cells, without leaving skin feeling tight or dry—allowing the skin to maintain its moisture barrier without stripping natural oils or creating dryness/irritation.

Hydrating cleansers should be used both morning and night—as the first step in your skincare routine—to create a clean base that allows other skincare items to be absorbed quicker and more efficiently.



During summer months, the skin is exposed to a wider range of environmental pollutants and free radicals. A build-up of chlorine, salt and sun exposure can have long-lasting effects on the skin, such as unwanted breakouts, sensitivity and irritation.

The early autumn months are the prime time to treat any skin blemishes that surfaced during the summer. This colder weather marks the perfect time to begin transitioning and introducing new skincare products into your skincare routine.

Topical treatments such as serums, and targeted moisturisers are the perfect addition to your current skincare to minimise unwanted breakouts, and even out your skin tone and texture. Our donkey milk skincare range is rich in vitamins A, B, C ,D and E, which will help to correct and reverse environmental damage and assist with maintaining an even skin tone and texture…making sure you maintain that healthy summer glow all year round, while keeping your skin happy and healthy!



During the cooler seasons it is essential to invest in a thicker moisturizer to minimise the long-term effects of the harsh weather. Moisturizers deliver hydration directly to the skin and create a moisture barrier, which is important to create a barrier between your skin and the surrounding climate, like cold wind, that can further dry out the skin.

The skin barrier's main job is to keep good things, like moisture in-and bad things, like pollution, external elements and damaging UV rays out. A functioning moisture barrier is the key to soft, glowing skin—during the cooler months it is essential to swap out your summer moisturiser for something that is a little more protective.

Even though beach weather is out…sunscreen is still in! Applying SPF not only locks in another layer of moisture, but provides protection against UV rays that can still wreak havoc on your skin—even when the sun is not out, so lather up!



Changes in humidity levels and changes in temperature can sometimes cause our skin to become ‘stressed’, and breakout. But don’t freak out! Its important to let your skin breathe and take time to accommodate the changing climate. Sticking to your skincare routine, both day and night will make sure your breakouts become less frequent. Remember consistency is key!

As seasons will our skincare! Cooler weather means our skin can become ‘dried out’ and prone to blemishes. Updating your skincare products and routine will ensure you maintain your summer glow through every season!
