Seasonal Skincare: Preparing Your Skin for the Queensland Autumn

As our hot and humid summer fades into the milder Queensland autumn, our skincare needs subtly shift. In Rockhampton, where the air becomes crisper and the humidity drops, adjusting your skincare routine is essential to keep your skin healthy and glowing. I'm Bronwyn Laverty-Young from Laverty Apothecary, and I'm here to guide you through transitioning your skincare to match the Queensland autumn climate, using products infused with the best natural, Australian-sourced ingredients.


Understanding Queensland Autumn

Autumn in Queensland isn't harsh, but the change in weather can still affect your skin. Lower humidity levels mean the air is drier, which can lead to your skin feeling the same. It's the perfect time to introduce more nourishing and hydrating products into your routine.

Skincare Adjustments for Autumn

1. Hydrate and Nourish: Swap your lightweight summer moisturiser for something richer. Look for products with hyaluronic acid and natural oils like almond oil and coconut oil, which are excellent for keeping your skin hydrated and soft.

2. Gentle Cleansing: Continue to cleanse daily, but opt for gentler, cream-based cleansers that don’t strip your skin of its natural oils.

3. Exfoliate Moderately: Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, but it’s important not to overdo it. Once a week is enough to keep your skin fresh without causing dryness.

4. Protect Your Skin: Even in autumn, the Queensland sun can be strong. Don't forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every morning, even on cloudy days.

5. Night-Time Nourishment: Night creams with natural, nourishing ingredients like shea butter can work wonders in repairing and revitalising your skin as you sleep.

Emphasising Natural, Australian Ingredients

At Laverty Apothecary, our focus is on utilising the best of what Australia has to offer. Ingredients like beeswax, provide a natural barrier that helps to lock in moisture, while native botanicals offer unique benefits suited to the Australian climate. By choosing products made with Australian-sourced ingredients, you're not only doing your skin a favour but also supporting local communities and sustainable practices.


Adjusting your skincare routine for the Queensland autumn doesn't have to be complicated. By incorporating richer, more nourishing products and not neglecting sun protection, you can keep your skin healthy and radiant. Prepare your skin for autumn with a touch of local luxury and nature’s best.
