As the weather begins to shift towards cooler autumn days, it might be time to treat your post-holiday, sun-drenched skin with a little extra TLC.
Summer can take its toll on our skin in a number of ways, resulting in redness, pigmentation, blocked pores and increased breakouts thanks to excess sun, sweat and extra layers of sun cream. Here’s our top tips for post-summer skin rehab…
Our skin obtains vital nutrients from what we eat, so a good diet is key. Skin nutrition works best when applied from the inside and out, and whilst we give skin a helping hand with the topical products we apply, it is equally important to feed the skin with a nutrient-rich diet. At this time of year, we recommend upping your intake of antioxidants which are great for helping the skin to repair itself from the inside. Try introducing deliciously nutritious antioxidant-rich foods such as blueberries, nuts, spinach, tomatoes, kale and sweet potatoes into your daily meals.
The summer months can leave our skin feeling tight, dry and sensitive. This is the time to layer up on ingredients that help to hydrate and deeply nourish the skin. Our hydrating face and body milk contains vitamin E, a potent antioxidant. Regular application can protect your skin from oxidative stress and UV radiation damage, keeping it soft and supple.
Soothe and Repair
Redness, pigmentation and capillary damage are common after-effects of increased sun exposure. Include products specifically designed to help these concerns in your post-summer skincare routine. Look for ingredients that help to soothe, even skin tone and reduce inflammation, like our Bilberry and Chamomile Masks, which stimulates the blood circulation and strengthens the capillary blood vessel structure, and our Organic Rosehip Oil which helps to renew skin cells and lighten discolouration.
