Skincare Secrets for Autumn
Many of us love autumn for various reasons; the colder weather, the snuggly sweaters and the spooky occasion of Halloween, to name a few. But, for most of us, it can also wreak havoc on our skin and cause it to flake and become dry which can sometimes knock our confidence down. If you take some precautions and get some new skincare in, you can protect your skin from the cold weather, and make it even brighter and smoother than before.
Read on for our top skincare secrets for autumn to make sure you look and feel your best, despite the bitter chills trying to tear down our defences.
Switch to a Better Moisturising Cleanser
As the temperatures decrease, so do the humidity levels, which is bad news for our skin. Our skin loses moisture to the dry air around us, causing our skin to dry out and crack. To start preventing this before it even begins, we recommend that you switch your light cleanser for something more hydrating to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.
Micellar cleansing water is perfect for hydrating parched skin as well as boosting the skin’s barrier to protect it from the oncoming cold weather. Many different beauty brands have their versions of micellar water, so it won’t be hard to find something in the beauty range at our stores that’ll suit your skin type.
Look Out for Aggregators
There are many things which can set off our skin’s dryness this autumn. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, keep an eye out for temperature switches in the weather that go from hot to cold or even temperature switches at home; for instance, in the shower or leaving and entering a warm room as this can affect the skin. Its impact on your skin regulates oil, which can, in turn, cause breakouts and if you suffer from eczema, you will have a higher chance of experiencing flare-ups which is the worst case of dry and flaky skin.
Also, changes in diet with a higher intake of fats and oily foods can cause breakouts on the skin. Sometimes our diets change as we enter the colder months because we seek fattier foods for comfort. But, you need to avoid taking this to the extreme if you want your skin to remain healthy and spot-free. Also, make sure you are drinking plenty of water!
Lancome Moisturiser Renergie Multi-Lift Ultra
A must-have skin product this autumn is the Lancome Moisturiser Renergie Multi-Lift Ultra. The formulation of this product promotes a lifted and firmer complexion that makes you appear more youthful and bright. The range consists of various creams which will rejuvenate the skin and make you a glowing goddess. Treatments like this are necessary for the skin this autumn as when the cold weather sets in, we need to give our skin hydration, moisture and a little TLC.
Take it Further than Topical Care
You need to go further than just skincare products if you want your skin to be bright and soft this autumn. You need to make sure that your water intake and diet is good enough and providing the right nutrients to give your skin the boost it needs. Again, make sure that you drink plenty of water and eat foods with high water content to prevent the skin from drying out.
Top tip: food and skincare products rich in essential fatty acids such as avocado oil and vitamin E will also keep the skin hydrated and plump while shea butter and aloe vera will keep the cells functioning optimally.
