5 Autumn Skincare Tips To Maintain A Glowing Complexion
Autumn is well and truly here and, whilst there’s a lot to look forward to (think pumpkin spiced lattes!), our skin doesn’t always welcome the seasonal changes. Research found that searches for new beauty routines spiked as we move into the autumn months, which are typically a time when the skin gets dehydrated and begins to lose its summer glow...
The change in season calls for some adjustment to our skincare regimes, especially if we want to maintain that haloed summer glow. As a great starting point, we recommend watching Dermalogica’s recent Instagram Live which gives some fantastic autumn skincare tips.
To help transition to an autumn skincare routine and maintain a radiant complexion throughout the cold season, we’ve put together five autumn skincare tips:
1. Double cleanse
If you don’t already do so, then now is the time to introduce double cleansing to your skincare routine. And we can’t think of a better dynamic duo than Dermalogica’s hero PreCleanse, followed by the equally intrepid Intensive Moisture Cleanser. Both Dermalogica products are suitable for all skin types and should be an essential part of every autumn skin care routine.
2. Don’t forget to exfoliate
Whilst it might seem counterintuitive to buff away skin that feels like it’s taken a hammering from the harsh winds and cold weather, that’s actually exactly why regular exfoliation is one of the top autumn skincare tips.The combination of central heating inside and cold temperatures outside means that our skin cells dehydrate and die out faster in the autumn and winter months. Exfoliation removes these dead skin cells so that we can properly absorb the products we apply. Mesoestetic’s Glycolic + E + F Ampoules is the perfect exfoliating treatment for those who want a glowing complexion; it also reduces wrinkles, spots, and pores.
3. Opt for a brightening moisturiser
What could possibly say ‘autumn skin care routine’ more than the daily dose of pumpkin enzymes contained in Dermalogica’s new Bio-Lumin Brightening Gel Moisturiser? Best of all, clinical studies have shown that the weightless, vitamin C rich gel moisturiser delivers three times more brightening to really help you get your glow on.
4. Be selective with your serum
Seasonal serum is one essential you should never skimp on; the Duchess of Sussex certainly doesn’t. Meghan Markle revealed to Allure magazine that she loves the Jan Marini Transformation Face Serum, saying: "It's a nice glycolic one that makes your skin really glowy," Suitable for all skin types, the results of this revolutionary serum are rapid and dramatic.
5. Don’t forget about your lips
One of the key autumn skincare tips is to start using a lip moisturiser, as the lips are undoubtedly one of the areas most affected in the autumn months. A bright, glowing complexion needs to be complemented by moist, healthy looking lips; which is exactly what you will get when using Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex. The unique lip treatment provides intense, long-lasting hydration.
Bonus autumn skincare tip!
No round-up of autumn skin care routine products would be complete without mention of Mesoestetic’s Ultimate W+ Whitening BB Cream. The powerful multi-action moisturising cream will help you get that haloed glow by instantly illuminating the skin, has the perfecting properties of a make-up base, and provides SPF 50 protection. (That’s three autumn skincare tips rolled into one!)
