How To Break Up with Summer and Prep Your Skin for Autumn
As the temperature plummets and leaves start to fall, it definitely feels autumnal. We are begrudgingly having to retrieve our jumpers from the back of our closets and pull out our black stockings (see you in April legs!). But on the bright side, the change of season gives us the perfect excuse to revamp our skincare routine and prep for the colder months.
STEP 1: Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
If your skin feels dry or dull post summer outdoor activities (not to mention the daily glasses of rose - it’s an antioxidant, right?!), it’s important to exfoliate regularly to reveal smooth, new skin. You can use all the best skin products in the world, but if the dry, dead skin cells have not been exfoliated away, they will not be absorbed into the skin. Our Facial Renewing Vitamin-C Powder is the real deal - it will not only exfoliate the skin, but encourage cell renewal and in turn, enhance skin's barrier function to reduce damage of free radicals. As for the body, we love dry body brushing and follow with our Nourishing Body Remedy.
STEP 2: Switch to a Facial Oil
It isn't just the frosty weather that wreaks havoc on the skin, but the constant change of atmosphere, from freezing winds to heated rooms. Leaving us with chapped lips, scaly skin and a dull complexion. We suggest strengthening the skin’s protective lipid barrier by switching your light moisturiser with a high-quality, organic face oil. Replenish the skin’s precious moisture with our Facial Beauty Elixir - a rich-yet-lightweight oil that's packed with antioxidants and vitamins that stimulates your natural collagen production.
STEP 3: Bring in the Big (Eye) Guns!
Hands up if you are a sufferer of dark circles and eye puffiness! It’s so important to give extra attention to the delicate skin under the eyes as it is the first giveaway if you are feeling a little under the weather. After late summer nights, a few too many Aperols and a wink of sleep, our Advanced Eye Therapy has become our saviour - and we will be continuing to rely on it during Autumn. We recommend refrigerating the oil as the smooth steel ball acts as a cooler to target puffiness - which instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles (thank god).
And there you have it! Our guide to conquering these cooler, bi-polar weather. Trust us, it so much easier to maintain that summer glowing skin than it seems!
