Summer might be over but that doesn’t mean you have to lose your Summer glow!
As the last days of summer wind down and the weather begins to change, so does your skin. Cooler, dryer air means your beauty regiment needs a revamp to keep your skin moisturized and healthy.
But just because it isn’t summer anymore doesn’t mean you have to lose your summer glow. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and vibrant this fall.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise
As temperatures plummet, humidity levels do too, and our skin loses moisture to the dry air around us. Using the right moisturiser can help your skin develop a lipid shield, which in turn helps maintain the natural oil and moisture of your skin. Adding a richer moisturiser to your routine is a quick way to help skin out during changing seasons. If you still love your lighter lotion, just switch it up once a day and chose a richer night cream.
Swap that cleanser
Switch your light cleanser for something more hydrating, by using a moisturising cleanser you will support your skins barrier against the damaging effects of the cold weather to come.
Don’t think sunscreen is no longer needed!
Just because the weather is changing and getting colder it doesn’t mean the sunscreen can be put away. All year round the rays from the sun can damage your skin therefore keep using a moisturiser that includes SPF such as Medik8 Advanced Day Total Protect. SPF protection helps ward off wrinkles and sunspots, which in turn helps keep your skin looking healthy youthful.
Rev up the Retinol
Retinol, or vitamin A, is a powerful way to help your skin recover from long days sunning on the beach. Hailed as the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing, vitamin A improves skin texture, minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and balances uneven skin tone. Retinol also helps to decongest pores and regulate sebum production for a clearer looking complexion. If you are unsure which one to use come and see us for a consultation and we will be able to advise which would be best suited for your skin type.
You may not be feeling the heat anymore but drinking water is one of the best things you can do to keep your skin looking young and glowing all year long. Proper hydration makes every system work better including your skin. Drinking water ensures that nutrients are delivered to cells keeping them hydrated and plump – and plump cells can help your skin look firmer.
