How To Look After Your Skin This Autumn


Autumn is officially here if you didn’t know already, I am sure your skin and overall wellbeing is already telling you.

 

We enjoyed the hot summer, we may have overexposed our selves leading to pigmentation, dehydration from our travels and our drinks, rekindled our social lives.

 

September comes and goes, we decide to change up our wardrobes, what about our skincare? Are there any new essentials or tips to help our skin through the season.

 

 What we often see is that during the autumn our skins barrier is breached this is due to the elements and external aggravators which shows itself as dry, sensitive, irritated and dull looking skin. 

 

The question is: what can we do? Do I need way more products?

Answer in short : No

Some simple tweaks can allow you to look after your skin 'sustainably this season' and beyond. 

 

1. Cleanse 

Your cleansing routine is so important. It helps the natural cell turnover, removing the debris to improve the effectiveness of the key ingredients in the next steps in your routine. It helps to expel toxins and increase the blood flow and improves your circulation. Those 60 seconds enjoy! Make it a mindful experience. Use a cleanser which does not leave your skin feeling stripped and tight.

Hydration is key both internally and externally. Our heating and then the blustery winds can lead to skin asking for help. We are made up of majority water, and the change in weather can lead to expelling an increased amount of water which leads to dehydration. Therefore, Hyaluronic Acid remains a key ingredient no matter the season. Use the Glow Boosting 2 in 1 Moisturiser and Serum.  morning and night, straight after cleansing.

 

 3. Seal and Protect with Moisturiser

When looking for a moisturiser it may testing to find the right one which is not too thick for skin prone to breakouts, but still with enough of a consistency to deeply nourish a normal to dry skin. The Glow Boosting 2 in 1 Moisturiser and Serum which combines the hydration and moisturising step, is definitely a great one for all skin types with its consistency and formulation of non-comodogenic oils which deeply moisturiser, rejuvenation and help to even the skin tone. For further nourishment the Super Veg Facial Oil  effortlessly glides across the skin and boasts over 20 plant based ingredients and antioxidants which promote lasting skin health. This can be used both during the day, but definitely a must have in your night time routine. 

 

 4. Exfoliation is Key

Reveal fresh and radiant skin which can give you a better glow. Exfoliation enhances the effectiveness of your other skincare steps.  Choosing a exfoliates which works on the surface and deeper layers is a perfect combination, which you can find in the Glow Enzyme Polish working to also help lift away pigmentation and calm redness found in the skin.  

 

 Choose to gently exfoliate 1 - 2 times a week as part of your weekly self care routine. 

 

 

5. SPF is your BFF. 

No matter the weather wear SPF to protect the skin from the UVA and UVB rays which you may see or feel but are always there.
