Autumn is here… time to reinvent your skincare regime.

Autumn is here… time to reinvent your skincare regime.

Not only your wardrobe needs an Autumn fix… As the weather is getting colder its time to pay that extra care to your skin. Products that might have been your Summer saviours, now might just not do their job.

Those cosy, peaceful evenings by the fireplace, despite being easeful, can be daunting to your complexion and strip it of the moisture drastically. The outer layer of your skin is very fragile during Autumn, and if not protected, the wind can weaken and dry it out, add in central heating which we are starting to use more and more often during those cold nights and the result is overdried and irritated complexion.


Foaming cleanser might have been your Summer best friend, but now its time to think hydration. Switch to those creamy and soothing ones to give your skin an extra relief and nourishment. Our ZO Hydrating Cleanser | RRP £40.00 | is one of the Autumn/Winter must-haves. It helps to retain the moisture within your skin during the cleansing process. It’s key ingredients; Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Glycerin, Sodium PCA and Urea have restoring, replenishing, and hydrating properties. Allantoin helps to soothe and calm dry and irritated skin. What we love about this cleanser is it doesn’t leave that greasy residue like other moisturising products. Our rtwskin skin specialists suggest focusing on the cleansing products first when it comes to dehydrated skin.


A good multitasking moisturiser is the next product to consider. Lightweight formulas are not good enough to battle irritation and dehydration. Obagi Hydrate Luxe | RRP: £60.00 | is our favourite product to go for in the Autumn season. It works wonders when used as a night repair, so you don’t have to overhaul your regimen completely. Use your regular moisturiser for daytime and add on a double strength product at night to give your complexion that extra care. Hydrate Luxe composed of key biomimetic peptides, provides overnight, ultra-rich moisturisation and has a luxurious, balm-like texture. It contains innovative Hydromanil (naturally derived from tara seed) which has been clinically proven to improve the moisture content of the skin. It’s key ingredients; Chronoline, Kollaren, Hydromanil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Avocado and Glycerin work in double-action. These are designed to reduce water loss and hold it on the surface of your skin as well as to retain moisture and continuously release active hydrating compounds within the skin.


Don’t skip the scrub! It is undoubtedly an integral part of any skincare regimen despite the season. The exfoliation process strips dead skin cells and helps active ingredients of your beauty products, such as serums, to penetrate on a deeper level. During colder months, use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week. If you are looking to try something new our glo Skin Beauty Refresh Facial Polish | RRP: £35.00 |  is a product to go for. It awakens tired, dull skin, clears pores and removes dead skin debris for a smoother-looking complexion. It provides gentle mechanical and chemical exfoliation from environmentally-friendly scrubbing beads and Papaya enzymes. A refreshing scent gives a cooling tingle to awaken the senses while providing soothing and nourishing benefits.

Your hands might feel uncomfortable and extremely dry this Fall. More frequent washing, sanitisers and cold weather are continually stressing our skin. It’s essential to focus on protection to prevent skin distress that will be difficult to heal due to constant disinfecting. We recommend using hand balm after each handwashing. Additionally use a cream that is designed for overnight recovery to calm and soothe irritated skin.

We often experience damaged and dry lips during colder months. With humidity levels declining and the temperature dropping our lips need extra care and attention. Our skincare experts advice is simple ‘Less licking and more lip balm’. Rich and Repairing balms are your Autumn saviours. Look for something natural with beeswax addition which will create a barrier to protect your pout from wind, low temperatures and moisture loss. Burt’s Bees Lip Care range is full of fantastic products formulated without Parabens, Phthalates, Petrolatum or SLS, what is more, all ingredients are 100% natural origin. A true lip hero!
