Fall Skincare Must- Haves with Alba Botanica

My skin is always at its best during the summer, and it usually takes a turn for the worst as the weather gets colder. I'm hoping to avoid that downturn this year with a few botanically-based products from Alba Botanica®. I have recently been using the Acnedote Clearing Gel PeelTMto keep breakouts away and the Hawaiian Facial Mask Pore-Perfecting Papaya Enzyme for a little skin refresh!

I have been a big fan of the AcnedoteTM line, made with plant-based ingredients to gently care for acne-prone skin.
I have mentioned this a few times before, but I have struggled with acne since high school. I have tried several different
topical prescriptions and antibiotics over the years. So, note that I do also use prescriptions to keep my skin clear.
However, this line is a great supplement to prescription acne treatments. I have been using the AcnedoteTM scrub since last winter, and have recently started using the clearing gel peel. The line also includes a cleanser,
on-the-go towelettes, oil-free moisturizer, and spot treatments!

I have been loving the AcnedoteTM Clearing Gel Peel made with Active Fruit Acids, that help dry up blemishes.
It is also made with Salicylic Acid and Willow Bark Extract, that banish the bacteria that cause acne. I have tried
this out a few times and it leaves my skin feeling so clean. It only needs to be used once or twice a week for 1-5
minutes to see some results! I wash my face and use this for a few minutes, before I apply my topical acne
prescriptions. This peel is 100% vegetarian, was not tested on animals, and does not contain any artificial colors
or fragrances. It is also dermatologist tested and the winner of Better Nutrition’s "Best of Natural Beauty Award"!

Self-Care Sunday has become popular on social media lately, but I personally prefer self-care Monday after taking a hot yoga class. After I take off my makeup and wash my face, I love using the Alba Botanica® Hawaiian Facial Mask. This mask has a Pore-Perfecting Papaya Enzyme that works to loosen dull skin cells.  I think it smells like a tropical island, and it has an extra bit of hydration from the pH balanced formula. It leaves my skin feeling very refreshed! As I already mentioned, my skin typically dries out when the temperatures go down. So I think this mask will be just the refresh my skin will need going into fall!
