Summer can leave skin dull and rough so it’s important to exfoliate and hydrate after vacation season. A cleansing device (like the SkinPro Cleansing System) gently removes dirt and the build-up of dead skin cells. Think of it as a buffering system that makes skin better prepared to absorb the active ingredients found in serums and moisturisers. Hello luminous autumn skin!
2. INVEST IN HAND CREAM
We often over-look our hands when it comes to skin care, and yet our hands are as exposed to the elements as our faces are. As hands can become dry and cracked in the autumn, invest in a protective hand cream that nourishes and moisturises, like this one by SoftCaress. Start now for best results!
3. EXFOLIATE WITH AN OIL-BASED SCRUB
Sun and chlorine can leave skin dry and flaky, so kickstart the new season with a full-body exfoliation. An oil-based scrub will remove dead skin cells whilst hydrating. Make a habit of it and apply weekly – you’ll have smooth, glowing skin in no time!
"Regular exercise is also key to achieving healthy skin.”
4. SWITCH FROM LOTION TO CREAM
When air becomes drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturiser. As lotions are lightweight, they tend to suit warm weather, whilst richer creams are ideal for nourishing and protecting winter skin. A day cream will provide a strong oily barrier that will reduce water loss whilst providing hydration.
5. SWEAT IT OUT
It's hardly news that exercise is great for your heart, lungs, and mental wellbeing. What you may not know is that regular exercise is also key to achieving healthy skin. Cardiovascular exercise (like running, cycling or dancing) boosts your circulation, nourishing skin cells and flushing toxins out of your body. So even if the temperatures are cooling, head outdoors and get active – think about it as cleansing from the inside, out!
