When it comes to beauty products, many people adopt personal favourites they like to use all year round, but we’re here to tell you this can be a rookie mistake! It’s essential to use the right products for the right season, and if you want your skin to look the best it can be then you need to adapt to the time of year. Follow our top tips to ensure you get the most from your autumn beauty routine!
During the colder months the weather plays a big part in our skin. There is less moisture in the air which means less moisture for our skin, combine this with blustering winds and you’ve got yourself dry, itchy skin! In order to combat this, we recommend swapping your usual moisturiser for a heavier one with more hydrating properties. If you have especially oily skin, try using your usual moisturiser and adopt a heavier one specifically for the drier parts of your face.
To avoid dry, dehydrated skin, you should exfoliate once to twice a week. Exfoliating will remove the dead skin cells and dry layers to avoid the appearance of rough, tired skin. This will reveal new healthier skin cells, which will in turn give you a refreshed glow. With the dead cells gone your skin can now properly absorb any moisturising products applied and ensure you’re getting the benefit of your beauty routine. We recommend a full body scrub to remove dead and flaky skin not only from your face but also the rest of your body. Why not visit Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa for their Honey Spa Experience, and allow your skin to feel invigorated after a 60 minute Nectarine and Honey Body Scrub Treatment!
Autumn and winter months often leave your face looking dull and lifeless, but you can combat this with a few tweaks to your makeup products. Use a hydrating primer to ensure a solid base for your makeup, but also to add a glow to brighten the skin when it’s looking a little lack lustre. When it comes to foundation, bronzer and blushes, swap your powders for liquid products to avoid flaky looking skin. If you really can’t leave the house without a bit of lippy, make sure you steer clear of dry, matte lipsticks as they will encourage chapped lips. Instead opt for creamy lip products with a sheen finish, or even better adopt a tinted lip balm!
If your skin is dry all year round, then the colder months can be even trickier for you! If a heavier moisturiser and increased exfoliation still isn’t cutting it for you, try a hydrating facial mask to help put moisture back into the skin. We recommend The Bath Priory’s Garden Spa Autumn Spa Retreat for a 60 minute Shea Nourishing Comfort Facial. It’s intensively nourishing shea formula and gentle exfoliation will restore moisture to the skin, and its repairing and hydrating properties bring rejuvenation and long-lasting comfort.
