It’s already July, where the time gone? Before you know it it’ll be Autumn. It’s time to think about what the pending Autumn months have to offer and prepare your skin for the harsher months ahead. When the leaves start falling and you’re revelling in landscapes of gold and brown, your skin may be attempting to recover from summer-time dryness and may need a makeover. Here are just some of the best skincare practices this Autumn.
Use suntan lotion in Autumn
While you may think suntan lotion is something that should only be worn while on holiday, you’d be surprised at the threats the sun can pose all year round. While autumn may be home to some of the gloomier months of the year, it’s important to protect yourself against the invisible UV rays that the sun omits. We’re not saying you need to be oiled up in factor 50, but some light sunscreen wouldn’t hurt. The benefits of this in later life include a reduced chance of developing skin cancer, fewer wrinkles, and smooth, healthy skin.
Use Rosehip Oil for healthy Autumn skin
Rosehip Oil is a reasonably understated skincare treatment but provides enormous benefits when it comes to the health of your skin. Rosehip Oil contains numerous fatty acids that are essential for keeping your skin cells strong and hydrated. Don’t worry, these acids aren’t going to make you fat, they simply contain linolenic and antioxidants that help remove toxins from the skin and provide you with a natural glow. Rosehip Oil is the perfect product for consumers looking for an anti-aging routine, reduction in acne, or a product that removes dark circles from underneath your eyes.
Turn down the heat
Reducing the amount of heat that your skin is exposed to is also a good method of improving the health of your skin. Colder weather prevents the secretion of sebum, which waterproofs the skin and creates a natural glow. Additionally, the colder weather also improves blood circulation and allows for a better night’s sleep, meaning that puffiness and bags under your eyes will be a thing of the past. If you’re looking for an artificial means of improving your skin then it’s worth investing in some cooling facemasks to do the job for you. You can find many modern ranges that provide skin care products for all requirements.
Hydrate and moisturise
Hydrating and moisturising your skin is perhaps one of the simplest and most beneficial means of improving your skincare routine. Failure to hydrate effectively can cause your skin to become dry and flaky and sore. Regular moisturising and the application of hydration masks are just two of the ways to ensure your skin remains clear. However, drinking the recommended intake of two litres of water each day should do the trick in keeping your skin hydrated and glowing. There are tonnes of skincare products currently on the market, with all of them pledging to offer a miracle treatment. While often it’s the natural skincare and beauty regimes that provide the most benefits there are also plenty of products out there that mix natural antioxidants with beneficial and scientifically proven skincare treatments. Whether it’s rosehip oil or a good old-fashioned glass of water, we hope your skin is still glowing by the end of Autumn.Love Lilla xx
