How To Transition Your Skincare Routine From Summer To Autumn

Ah, summer! Long beach days, sun-kissed skin and a pared-down skin routine of lightweight products. But as the temperature drops, it’s time to swap out your summer staples for more nourishing options.

How Does Autumn Affect The Skin?

Cooler months mean drier air and indoor heating, but what does that mean for your skin? The drop in humidity coupled with drier air and indoor heating causes dryness and irritation, especially true if you have sensitive skin to begin with. Unfortunately, dry skin isn’t the only by-product of autumn - flakiness, breakouts, redness and dullness can often come along too. 

Tips To Get Your Autumn Glow


Opt for a hydrating cleanser
Your skin will produce less oil during autumn and winter, so it’s important to choose a cleanser that hydrates whilst it cleans. The hydration+ Gel Cleanser is infused with the power of Hyaluronic Acid and Rosehip Oil to offer a burst of hydration whilst gently cleansing away makeup and impurities.


Switch to a thicker moisturiser
Lightweight formulas feel better through summer, but it’s time to level up come autumn with a richer moisturiser. Replenish lost lipids with Ceramides and 4 molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid using the hydration+ Daily Facial Moisturiser. Rosehip Oil and Shea Butter work together to intensely nourish and lock in moisture. 


Add Retinol to your routine
Diminish those dark spots and sun-induced discolouration with our Retinol Night Renewal Facial Oil. The low-irritation serum plumps the appearance of your skin, whilst reducing fine lines and wrinkles and sealing in hydration. Safe for nightly application, please don’t use it if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.


Work in a hydrating serum
Take your hydration game to another level with a serum. These contain smaller and more potent molecules that work wonders for added protection and nourishment retention. We recommend applying our Intense Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum in the morning before moisturising, or instead of retinol at night to lock in moisture. This serum has 5 different molecule sizes to offer healthier-looking skin, while soothing dryness and dehydration.


Go lighter on the exfoliator
You still need something to buff away dead skin cells without drying out your skin, like our hydration+ Pink Clay Exfoliator. This luxurious treatment combines the purifying properties of pink clay with the hydrating benefits of Hyaluronic Acid and Rosehip Oil to release smoother, revitalised skin. We recommend using this every other week through autumn and winter.


Amp up your body lotion
Just like your face, the skin on your body is bound to dry out due to less humidity in the air. Our Daily Hydration Body Lotion is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins E & C to give you softer, nourished skin.


Keep using SPF (in every season)
Summer may be over, but UVA damage isn’t. Even in overcast or rainy weather, UV rays penetrate the skin so using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide all year round is vital. Our Vitamin C Brightening Broad Spectrum SPF15 Moisturiser is rich in Vitamins A, B and C to nourish and protect your skin.


Be generous with the lip balm
Did you know that lips are structurally more vulnerable than the skin? They have a much thinner and weaker barrier which results in dehydration and painful chapping. Stock up on lip balms made from protective ingredients that lock in moisture, like beeswax, petroleum, glycerin or oils to really lock in moisture.
