With the colder days and evenings, we’re bringing you our Skincare Tips For Autumn to help keep your skin looking (and feeling) healthy throughout the year.
Whether you’re working from home, in and out of the office, working shifts or going by your day-to-day work, the temperature changes can cause havoc to your skin.
The key is to change your products throughout the year to suit your skin and it’s needs – not to change up your routine completely.
The Routine – Skincare Tips For Autumn
Just like we mentioned above, it’s not about changing your skincare routine but more about altering the products you use throughout the year.
Certain products will work better for your skin in the winter months, compared to summer – and vice versa!
Make sure you cleanse, tone and moisturise as your key steps but don’t forget to exfoliate or use a face mask during the week – especially during the Autumn and Winter….
Why…? Here’s why!
The Benefits of Exfoliating – Skincare Tips For Autumn
Let’s take a little look at why exfoliating your skin once/twice a week during the Autumn and Winter months can benefit your skin.
The temperature changes during the Autumn and Winter months are harsh on our skin so exfoliating is something that can really benefit your skin.
As you delicately massage the exfoliator onto the skin, this will ‘buff’ your skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and looking healthy and hydrated.
Exfoliating also works wonders as it helps your skin to then absorb your moisturiser better.
An essential during the Autumn and Winter months when your skin needs a moisture-boost, leaving it soft and hydrated.
The Benefits of Face Masks – Skincare Tips For Autumn and Winter
Face masks are considered as a ‘luxury’ when it comes to skincare but there’s plenty of affordable options out there.
Once a week, treat your skin to a face mask treatment whether you opt for a clay, a peel-off mask, a cream mask or a sheet mask, they can all work wonders!
Have a little read on the product and the descriptions and make sure the products work for you and your skin.
- Clay masks tend to suit most skin types which is why they’re a go-to for many people. They help to tone, freshen and balance your skin.
If you want something a little bit more specific, have a look at the ingredients. There’s fantastic options out there.
- Peel Masks are great and can be used to exfoliate delicately, they “lift off” drawing out those impurities and leave your skin looking and feeling great.
- Sheet Masks are normally infused with fantastic ingredients to give your skin that boost – most are targeted to certain skin types so see what is suitable for you and your skin.
Don’t change your skincare routine, continue doing what works for you but make sure you change your products throughout the year.
Add certain treatments to benefit your skin. If you think your skin needs a boost, opt for a hydrating face mask.
If your skin feels dry or chapped, exfoliate and follow up with a rich, hydrating moisturiser and night cream to ‘lock in’ all the fantastic ingredients.
Work with your skin and find products that benefit you but exfoliation and masks are fantastic for this time of year!
