Autumn Skin – How to Keep that Summer Glow

Changing season means rethinking your skins needs. Save your skin from becoming dull and lifeless as the weather cools and we begin to switch on the heating.

Falling leaves, cosy nights, Halloween treats – autumn can be pretty magical. But autumn also brings longer nights, drying central heating and a dramatic change in diet; all of which can be a recipe for not so good skin changes..

You have to think about your autumn skincare routine.

A transitional period, autumn is the time of year when you need to take a closer look at your complexion. Its the time to reverse any summer damage and prepare your complexion for winter. Think gentle enzymatic exfoliation, rebuilding & rejuvenating face masks and delicious moisturisers.

Heres your simple Autumn skincare 3 step plan

1. Renew your complexion

Summer’s glowing tans may start to give way to dry, flaky skin at this time of year. Use a gently exfoliating cleanser like the Buttermilk Cleanser – rich in gentle acting lactic acid which removes the dry flaky skin while maintaining the tan for longer and keeping skin hydrated and glowing. The Buttermilk Cleanser is powerful enough to remove all traces of dirt and grime, gentle enough not to strip your skin like harsh soaps and foams.

2.  Take time for you

Rainy days, darker nights; autumn is just the time to to pamper you. Take time to relax with a nourishing, face mask like the Rejuvenating Face Mask. This delicious mask rich in honey, amino acids and rose oil – stimulates circulation to give you a rosy glow while plumping up skin and stimulating collagen.  As we head towards less sunshine, winter layers and pale skin, your skin will thank you this simple yet effect beauty treat.

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

The colder the climate, the less able your skin is to protect itself. Switching to a moisturiser like the Rejuvenating Face Cream that helps prevent transepidermal water loss while hydrating and nourishing the skin. And its smells delicious too, let the gentle aroma of Rose damascena take you to a bygone era of glamour and natural elegance.

Don’t forget the delicate eye area that tends to suffer the most from change of season – use a gentle, light yet nourishing eye cream to keep your eyes bright and sparkly and the eye area super sharp.
