Now that the seasons are beginning to change and you’re having to say goodbye to the warmth of the summer months, you might find that it’s time to start giving your beauty regime a slight overhaul. The challenges that the colder weather poses to your skin are nothing like those that you faced during the heat of the summer. With these top tips and clinically proven formulas, you’ll be ready to tackle the autumn in style.
First things first, with the start of autumn and colder weather comes the looming threat of dry skin and cracked lips. To help ensure that your skin remains optimally hydrated take a look at a skin-nourishing moisturiser like the CosRx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Spa Overnight Mask. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, this is the sort of moisturiser that you can put onto your skin before you go to bed so that in the morning you wake up with radiant and radically hydrated skin.
You’re also going to want to avoid those harsh chemical cleansers and exfoliators. To prevent unwanted dryness and damage stick to a gentle, kind-to-skin cleanser like the BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original. A hypoallergenic cleanser that has been designed to be gentle on your skin, this is the sort of go-to product that you want to stock your shelves with during the autumn months.
If your skin’s already suffering from the harshness of the weather, you could try a moisturising cream that has been specifically deigned to tackle damage and redness. To reduce redness and inflammation that can be caused by the colder seasons, try out a cream such as the A'PIEU - Madecassoside Cream. Clinically tested and approved for use by dermatologists, this is a cream that has been specially designed for use in harsher environments and during harsher weather.
Don’t forget that there’s plenty of great hydrating toner’s to help you avoid skin dryness! The Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner is just one example of a toner that has been expertly crafted to ensure that your skin obtains and retains the moisture levels that it deserves. A revitalised, healthy glow begins with a solid skincare regime, and when you’re incorporating premium quality toners like this one into your skincare regime, there’s nowhere you can go wrong.
For your lips, try out the LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask. An award winning solution to dry and chapped lips, the LANEIGE Lip Mask is designed to smooth and firm your lips while you sleep, meaning that you can wake up to lips that have been thoroughly restored and hydrated.
The lack of hydration caused by the colder months can also, unfortunately, bring out wrinkles and fine lines, wreaking havoc on your youthful appearance. The hydrating products listed above should help you to retain a youthful-looking complexion, but if the weather has been harsh to your skin and accelerated the outbreak of wrinkles and fine lines, don’t worry. Products such as the COSRX - Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream, work to restore your skin’s youthful elasticity while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Remember as well: you shouldn’t stop applying your SPF just because the summer months have gone. To ensure you reduce the appearance of premature ageing, you want to be applying SPF all throughout the year.
Maintain a healthy diet, drink lots of fluids and follow the steps outlined above to ensure that your skin has been perfectly prepped to deal with the changing weather patterns this autumn. With the right products there is no reason that you should have to struggle with skin dryness this year.
