Can you feel it? Well, your skin probably can even if you don’t – the days are definitely getting shorter, the air is becoming drier and temperatures are dropping. Autumn has officially arrived. While cosy jumpers, pumpkin spiced everything and hot chocolates might be exciting for most – the cooler atmosphere doesn’t necessarily mean good news for your skin.
Preparing your complexion for winter is crucial in autumn as it is the best time to repair and rejuvenate your skin by correcting any summer damage. So getting the hydration your skin needs is even more important when the weather cools down as the lighter creams and masks that may have done the job previously simply won’t cut it now.
The good news is that we have you covered, our highly trained Skincare Professionals can provide you with all the information you need to look after your skin as we head into the cold and dark, cosy part of the year.
Consult a professional!
It is so important to see a qualified and highly trained skincare specialist if you want to look after your skin as best you can. They have the experience and expertise needed to guide you towards the right skincare regimen with the right products!
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate…
Contrary to popular belief – the right exfoliation is one of THE best ways to treat skin dryness.
After the summer sun, it is vital to remove dead and damaged skin cells to help your skin absorb all the goodness from your serums and moisturisers.
Before the biting cold of winter it is a great idea to assess your skin condition and see if you need more moisturisation, again, a specialist will be able to see things an untrained eye cannot. By upping your level of moisturisation now, before winter you will help to replace some of the moisture lost over the summer.
Lips & Hands…
Did you know that your lips don’t have the same outer layer as skin, the waterproof layer, that means they lose a lot of moisture. I guess that makes sense when you think about it – your lips are usually the first part of your body you notice going dry! Our hands are probably the second most commonly noted dry area of our skin, they work hard all day so it is important to look after them too.
Why not book in for a Skin Consultation with one of our highly trained, experienced Skincare Professional to find out what your skin needs.
Happy Autumn from the Iconic Beauty Team
