08 Nov Autumn skincare tips for a flawless glow
The cold snap has well and truly arrived, which can leave our skin longing for some TLC. This season, embrace a flawless golden glow with our tested skincare tips.
Yes, there’s a method behind our madness! The reason our skin tends to look great during the summer months is all that exposure to vitamin D. While there’s the tendency to bundle up indoors with the heating cranked up high (which dehydrates our skin FYI), we’re often lacking in the vital skin loving ingredient. So whether it’s a brisk walk at lunch time or a run in the morning, make sure you catch what few rays there are during the colder months.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
There’s no denying that our tan lasts longer when applied to exfoliated skin. As the colder seasons see a build up of dead skin cells (which actually prohibit your serums and moisturisers working their magic), exfoliation has never been more important. Increase the number of times a week that you exfoliate, and use an organic, microbead-free one for soft, radiant skin all year round.
Moisturiser is key
When you roll out of bed in the morning, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is moisturising from head-to-toe but if you have dry skin woes, get applying. Double up and choose our Gradual Facial Moisturiser for super soft skin with a subtle glow. And when it comes to your body, our Moisturising Body Lotion is perfect. Infused with skin loving ingredients such as anti-ageing and antioxidant white tea extract, aloe vera, and essential oil of lavender, your skin will definitely thank you! Or, if you prefer your moisturiser with a hint of tan, choose our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser and keep that glow alive.
Don’t forget about your lips
Often the first area to feel the effects of the cold, our lips need some TLC too. And don’t we know it when we apply our fave matte lippy, which turns flaky in minutes! Instead of opting for the tub of petroleum jelly -which as a by-product from the oil industry, isn’t actually compatible with our skin – choose a lip product which is packed full of natural waxes, butters and oils to protect, nourish and repair damaged lips. Before using a matte lipstick, ensure you coat your lips with a layer of balm to stop the flaky effect.
Hydrate from within
For beautiful skin from within, don’t forget to drink your recommended 8 glasses of water per day. Dehydrated skin can become dry and flaky, which, when combined with central heating, can be a nightmare to cure. So keep your water drinking up and hydrate from within.
