SKINCARE RECOMMENDATIONS DURING AUTUMN
When you upgrade your routine from summer to autumn, you really might want to reach for products that are more nourishing. The colder seasons can dehydrate and dry out our skin to a severe degree, so it is crucial that you look for cleansers, serums, and moisturizers that are more nourishing and contain more vitamins. We suggest to seek for products that are rich in essential fatty acids, cholesterol and ceramides so the dryness in the skin will be replenished. Begin your routine with cleansing milk, and switch from your lightweight moisturizer to a ceramide-rich cream instead, for an enhanced hydration while the temperatures get increasingly cooler.
Another advice we would like to share in order to save the skin from becoming pale, dull and dehydrated during these three months, is to exfoliate your skin twice a week. By doing this more regularly, you will help the cellular regeneration to increase, and also the dead skin cells removal, given that they might hinder the absorption of any kinds of moisturiser or serum. In case you never tried applying a facial oil before, the perfect time to invest is now. Given the delicately light and silky texture and the intense nourishing feel that they offer, facial oil products are ideal and just what you need if you want to give your skin the edge against the elements.
While it’s chill and dry, it can be tempting to go for a lip smoothening tub to protect them, but sadly, there’s more to it than meets the eye. As an industrial product, as you slather it on your lips it is like wrapping your skin in cling film, something that prevents it from breathing, and potentially making things even worse by making the area even more chapped and sore. Instead, we would recommend reaching for a lip balm that is made of natural oils and waxes so you protect, nourish and eventually repair the damaged lips. Another common problem that many seem to experience during autumn is the dry and sore hands, given that it’s one of the parts that produce the smallest amount of natural oil compared to the rest of your body. The perfect solution would be pampering your hands with a remedy that is deeply hydrating and nourishing like our exceptional and our very own product. Imagine Shea Butter. Not only designed to nourish dry and aging skin, but it also helps revitalizing your entire body. mind and soul.
