My Fall/Winter Skincare Regime

The fall season has finally arrived and I couldn't be happier.  The days get a little shorter and the weather gets a bit chillier, but it's the perfect time to light your autumn scented candles, start a fire in your fireplace, and cozy up with a warm snugly blanket and a cup of your favorite tea.  

Although summer is over and you may not see your bare legs and feet until next spring, it's important to remember that this is the time of year when your skin needs the most attention!  The colder weather and use of indoor heating during the fall and winter season will dry out your skin resulting in flakiness and/or cracking.

Today I am sharing some of my favorite skincare care products from L'occitane.  So draw a bubble bath, light a candle, and get ready to soak in some of the best spa moisturizing treatments that will keep your skin looking soft, supple, and glowing all season long!

1.   Verbena Shower Gel:   I start my home spa experience with this fresh, clean body cleanser scented with a crisp, citrus scent of verbena. Essential oils of orange, geranium, verbena, and lemon tree smooth and nurture even the most sensitive skin and will permeate your room with the sweet smelling aroma.

2.   Verbena Body Salt Scrub:  The next step is a luxurious exfoliating body scrub made with salts from the Mediterranean Sea.  The refreshing fragrance of pure extracts of verbena, orange, geranium and lemon tree are combined to create a perfect exfoliating body scrub. Essential oils of grapeseed, apricot and sweet almond nourish and moisturize while antioxidizing vitamin A helps maintain a healthy appearance. Skin turns silky-smooth as dead skin cells are massaged away. Your body and mood will feel revived.

3. Shea Ultra Rich Body Lotion:  Once you have cleansed and exfoliated, it's time to step out of the bath, dry off, and moisturize.  I love to use Shea Ultra Rich Body Lotion every day all over my entire body.  This ultra-smooth body lotion is enriched with 15% shea butter to nourish, calendula extract to soothe, and honey/sweet almond to moisturize.

4. Shea Butter Foot Cream:  If you're like me, your over-dry feet probably take the biggest beating and need the most attention.  I like to use the Shea Butter Foot Cream every day after showering.  Enriched with soothing lavender essential oil and anti-inflammatory arnica extract, this rich cream smoothes and softens the rough skin while relieving tired achy feet.

5. Verbena Eau de Toilette: I like to top off my fall and winter spa skin care regime with a splash of Verbena Eau de Toilette.  I love the delicate scent of verbena on a rosy base of sweet geranium and lemon tree.

6.  Shea Butter Hand Cream: Don't forget to pop this into your handbag for quick moisturizing fixes during the day.  This super-smoothing and best-selling hand cream is made of 20% shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract, blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences. The texturally pleasing balm glides on and miraculously absorbs to help heal and protect dry or dehydrated skin. Anti-oxidizing vitamin E helps nourish and invites even the most hard-working hands to a fresh beginning!

The weather outside may begin turning colder and dry in the upcoming months but your skin doesn't need to be.  Give your winter skincare regime a boost and say goodbye to unsightly dry, flaking, and cracking skin!  


I would love to hear from you!  What are your favorite skin care products for the hands, feet, and body that you cannot live without?  

Enjoy pampering!
