Check out these 6 tips below to keep your skin hydrated all year round- with the weather changing all the time so does your skin.
1. Check your skincare
As we move from Summer to Autumn we need to change our skincare routines a bit. During the colder months the humidity decreases and our use of central heating increases – both serve to dry out skin – so stick with your usual cleansing methods but remember to always avoid harsh, cleansing products which can dehydrate skin.
2. Don't forget SPF
Remember, you still need to protect your skin from the sun all year round (but making sure that you increase your SPF from November-march when in hot climates) so find a good day moisturizing cream that has a minimum SPF15 and a good UVA protection. Use this as a base daily before applying your makeup and then reapply during the day if out and about for lengths of time.
3. Use antioxidant-rich creams at night
Before bed, gently cleanse your skin without stripping it and drying it further with harsh chemicals and then apply a rich night moisturizing repair cream. Look for creams full of antioxidants, as nighttime is the best time to repair the skin.
4. Simplify your makeup routine
You'll need to tailor your makeup routine accordingly as the seasons change and make sure you're kind to your skin to avoid flare-ups and sensitivity which can make it hard to get the beautiful finish you want from your makeup.
5. Boost your cream with oil
As skin can become a little dryer as the temperature cools, and central heating is turned on, after cleansing at night, add a few drops of a rich nourishing oil to my night cream for an extra boost.
6. Try illuminating moisturizers for day
Skin can look dull during the cooler months, so I rely on an illuminating moisturizer for a complexion that looks bright and dewy all year round.
