Fall is in full swing and, as usual, the season changed in the blink of an eye! This quick change of season may have left your skin feeling dry and dull. You might even be breaking out more than usual. This is all because our skin changes just like the seasons. I know it sounds crazy that our skin can have more breakouts in fall and winter, but we explain it all below.
In the fall, our skin continues to function the same, and still has oils flowing like in the summer. However, the cold air tends to create a buildup of layers on the surface of the skin, trapping oil, bacteria and debris below it. Because of this, breakouts are more common, and your skin will require more protection from loss of moisture.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to buy all new products and switch up your whole routine, you might just need to tweak it a little. Continue reading to learn more about what to do this time of year, but for more information or to get customized advice, book a consultation with a trusted skincare professional. It’s always important to pay attention to the changes in your skin.
Check your cleansing routine
You may need to change up your cleanser in the cooler weather. As always, avoid surfactants, foaming, and sudsy cleansers. They strip your skin even more, leaving it dry and possibly irritated. A good oil cleanser or mild milk cleanser would be the best choice.

Increase dermal circulation
We don’t believe in exfoliation. But we do believe in stimulating the skin to increase blood supply to the cells, which assists the lymphatic system to work more effectively at removing waste. How do we do that?
We use our Yang Oil to bring blood up to the dermal cells. Yang oil contains a proprietary blend of essential oils such as cinnamon leaf, cranberry, and niaouli essential oils. This blend is designed to increase blood flow and balance the skin’s tone.
janegee Marine Mask will stimulate circulation as well as add minerals into the skin. This will allow your skin to hold onto its moisture longer.
The janegee Facial Kit has everything you need to maintain your skin at home. Use it to perform mini at home facials to increase dermal circulation and detox your skin. This will result in firmer, healthier looking skin. janegee facial kit will give you all the tools you need to manage your skin, especially during this change in season.
Detox your skin
Detoxing your skin on a regular basis is very important. Use good quality clay that’s rich in natural minerals to detox your skin weekly. We love natural clay because when you add water, it electrically charges it. What does that mean? Well, positive and negative ions attract each other. The clay will draw up the heavy metals, dirt and debris from the skin and wash them away. Pollution particles are finer than our pores, so our poor skin is bombarded every day.
You should always feed your skin and body with good, whole food. It doesn’t matter if you are vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, a meat-eater, etc. Know where your food comes from. Your diet directly affects what happens on your skin. It’s always important to follow the best possible diet for your body and your skin but it’s especially important when your skin is going through changes and dealing with concerns you didn’t have before.
Whatever you do, don’t ignore your skin this fall. Cleanse, hydrate, and moisturize your skin in a way that maintains the presence and balance of your skin’s natural defenses by choosing skin care that works with your skin, not against it.
