Autumn has well and truly crept up on us and whilst we are digging out our hats and scarves to protect ourselves from getting frostbite, we need to remember to protect our skin too! Just like the seasons, our skincare regime need a reboot to adapt to the changes!
How Autumn can affect your skin?
As we crank up the central heating the air humidity levels in the air drop, this dry air sucks more of the moisture out of our skin, damaging the barrier layer, allowing more allergens into the skin. This can cause it to become dry and even flake away. Especially those of us who suffer eczema, this can cause havoc for our skin!
Cold and windy weather
The harsh cold temperature combined with the autumn winds can reduce our skin's moisture levels, which in turn depletes the skin’s natural defenses, making it difficult for it to repair itself. This can cause skin stress and make skin very sensitive to touch.
Fluctuations in temperature from the cold outside to the indoor warmth
Hot to cold - cold to hot; these temperature extremes can damage our skin's complexions, cause the capillaries in the face to contract and expand rapidly which can lead to skin redness.
So to ensure that we keep our skin wrapped up full of natural skincare goodness to prevent dry, sensitive and dull complexion this Autumn, we have the perfect skincare regime for you.
It is time to Evolve your routine!
A hydrating, nourishing cleanser is the first step to combat skin's tendency to dry out as the temperature drops. We recommend our Gentle Cleansing Melt
. This luxurious natural cleansing melt is deeply soothing, for even the driest skin.
Massage an almond sized amount of melt into dry skin and rinse away with lukewarm water (hot water removed the natural oils from the skin and can cause it to become drier). When combined with water it turns into a creamy milky that rinses away clean, leaving skin fresh, calm and hydrated.
TOP TIP- For an extra treat use a warm, damp muslin cloth to remove the residue!
HOT OFF THE PRESS-
Stylist magazine-"An acorn-sized amount of this gel dissolves grime in record time while vitamin A and baobab extract soothe any irritated, inflamed patches."
It is often easy to forget the step in between cleansing and moisturising, but in Autumn it is even more important to add that extra stage.
To help to protect and defend your skin from the Autumn conditions it is important to treat your skin, to lock in as much moisture as possible!
