Autumn Skincare In A Nutshell
Updated: Aug 9
Start a great Autumn skincare regimen that promises to get you prepped for winter.
After record heat, it is time to prepare frazzled skin for cooler temperatures and repair any damage inflicted by the sun.
Keeping the skin moisturised now will ensure it is ready to endure the challenges presented during colder months.
Concentrating on deep hydration and pigmentation issues will give you the best chance of achieving glowing skin in less humidity and poorer light.
Put away those light gel washes and switch to something more nourishing. Choose a creamy wash with built-in moisturisation.
We recommend Cerave's fragrance free Hydrating Cleanser and Paula's Choice Hydrating Gel-to-Cream Cleanser. Use a cleansing tool for regular exfoliation but be careful not to apply too much pressure to the skin.
By using a hydrating moisturiser, you will give your routine a head start.
Use a toner that rehydrates the skin and delivers glow-boosting properties.
Choose a product that will gently remove dead skin cells and impurities without stripping your face of moisture.
Look for a serum that will even your skin tone but also deliver deep hydration. We recommend an ACE serum, which includes retinol, vitamin C and vitamin E. Take a look at Satin Naturel's aloe vera based Vitamin C Serum with Vitamins A and E.
Even in winter, it is important to use a day cream with a good SPF. That is because the sun can damage the skin at any time of the year. The early part of autumn can often seem like an extension of summer so choose a deeply hydrating moisturiser with an SPF above 20.
Why not try NIVEA's Cellular Luminous 630 Anti-Dark Spot Triple Protection Day Fluid? It has an SPF of 50.
Ensure your night cream is rich enough to replenish the skin. We recommend the ELEMIS Superfood Midnight Facial. It is a prebiotic overnight cream that nourishes, replenishes and revives.

In A Nutshell
Autumn skincare can be summed up in two words - repair, prepare. Keep those in mind and you won't go far wrong.
