Now that Autumn is here it is time to switch up your skincare regime. While summer brings all things SPF, the change of seasons can quickly affect what your skin feels and looks like. With a switch in temperature and the need to crank the heating up, the frequent transition between hot and cold can cause havoc on your plump summer skin. Don’t worry if you feel like you don’t have any extra time, here are five simple yet effective beauty tips that will leave your skin looking autumn-ready.
Exfoliating is key
Exfoliating once a week is good all year long but now it’s time to ramp it up and treat your skin at least twice a week. During the colder months, your skin can be left looking dehydrated and dull and by rubbing a scrub into it, you can increase regeneration as well as removing dull dead skin cells that can very easily get in the way of moisturizer absorption. A fruit scrub is a great product to use as not only will it do wonders for your skin, but you can enjoy those summer aromas.
Moisturize, a lot
While it is possible to choose an oil-free moisturizer in summer, it is better to switch this routine around altogether. As the cold weather leaves your skin feel dry, it is important to scan your products to make sure that they do not contain an ingredient called drying alcohol. On top of dry skin, this can cause some serious irritation. Another great product to invest in this autumn is a face oil, with a silky and light texture, it will leave your skin feeling ultra-smooth and full of life. If you are looking for something a little special, go for an oil that includes primrose, rosehip or sweet almond.
When it comes to lip care, despite what we think we might know, balms that include petroleum jelly aren’t so good for us. The change in temperature can really attack your lips so it is best to start with the lip care now, that way, you can prevent any chapping. Wild Rose does some gorgeous autumn-themed lip balms that not only hydrate but also smells delicious. From an organic coffee infused balm to gingerbread and more.
