Love Thy Skin
With cooler weather comes different skin challenges. Carlie Wacker shares some tips to ensure your skin weathers well.
As the seasons change, so should our skincare routine. Our body’s largest organ needs different things as the weather and environment around us switches up so here are some helpful tips to beautiful skin in autumn.
Exfoliate – Over summer we use more sunscreen and are exposed to the elements so a good exfoliation will help remove any excess products sitting on your skin blocking pores; and slough away any dead skin cells revealing fresher, brighter skin. This also ensures that any serums or moisturisers are easily absorbed for maximum benefits.
Hydrate – As we move into cooler temperatures, we expose our skin to heaters and reverse-cycle air conditioning that suck the moisture out of the air (and therefore our skin). Maintaining hydration is extra important to minimise dehydration.
Lip Service – Don’t forget to look after your lips. Seek out lip exfoliation creams and balms t0 keep your pout plump.
Sunscreen – Although the weather is less extreme it’s still vital to apply sunscreen daily to prevent premature ageing and damage.
Gut Health – Look after your skin from the inside out. Good gut health results in healthier, more hydrated and protected skin. Try adding broths and powders to your daily routine.
Sweat it out – Infrared saunas have so many benefits including assisting with weight control and reducing the appearance of cellulite. It detoxifies heavy metals and chemicals and tightens.
Regenerate – Autumn is a great time to start treatments that can reduce the sun damage and pigmentation in our skin.
Tighten Up – Thanks to the latest technologies there are non-surgical and non-invasive treatments available to help fight the effects of ageing and shift stubborn fat cells. HIFU uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to smooth out wrinkles, reduce cellulite and tighten the skin. There’s also cryolipolysis or fat freezing treatments to help shift stubborn fat deposits, particularly on the belly and thighs. Best of all, it’s non-surgical, fast and affordable!
