Autumn skincare

With a sharp drop in temperature making us switch on the heating, the autumn weather can wreak havoc on any skin type

See your skin through the change in seasons with these top tips and prepare your complexion for winter

Switch to a more moisturising cleanser
As temperatures plummet our skin loses moisture to the dry air around us. Make the first move and outsmart moisture-loss by swapping your light cleanser for something a little more hydrating.  A rinse-off cleanser, like Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash, will help wash away those dead skin cells, without leaving skin feeling tight or dry.

Keep hydrated
Dehydration can cause skin to become dry and flaky. Drinking 2 litres of filtered water per day is an essential way to protect your skin from succumbing to autumn dullness. Keeping well-watered is a quick and cost effective way to help rid the body and skin of toxins with many people reporting that by increasing their water intake, their skin has a more radiant glow.

Butter up with bodycreams 
Moisturizing from head to toe is non-negotiable in the colder months. The best time to apply lotion is right after your shower or bath, when your skin is still a bit damp. With 48hr moisturising properties, this coconut nourishing body butter provides your skin with a dose of ultra-rich hydration to help your skin stay softer for longer.

Invest in a new hand cream
While it may be easy to forget about the hands it’s important to carry a good hand cream in the colder months. Make sure to invest in a rich, buttery cream now and you’ll reap the benefits all winter long. Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm uses a restorative formula to protect your hands from drying effects and contains a rich blend of natural oils to replenishing dry skin.
