As the golden warmth of summer fades and the crisp, cool breezes of autumn take over, our skin undergoes a significant transition. Just as we swap out our summer dresses for cozy sweaters and our sandals for boots, our skincare routine needs a seasonal makeover. The shift from summer's humidity to autumn's dryness can be challenging for our skin. But with the right knowledge and tools, you can ensure your skin remains radiant and healthy.
Summer, with its sunny days and high humidity, often leaves our skin with a natural glow. The increased moisture in the air keeps our skin hydrated, and the sun, in moderation, can give us that coveted sun-kissed look. However, as we move into the fall, the humidity levels drop, leading to drier air. This can strip our skin of its natural moisture, leading to dryness, flakiness, and sometimes even breakouts.
Moreover, the damage from prolonged sun exposure in the summer months, like sunspots and reduced skin elasticity, becomes more apparent as our tans fade. The combination of these factors means our skin requires a different kind of attention and care in the autumn months.
So How To Tailor Your Skincare Routine?
1. Deep Hydration: As the air becomes drier, it's essential to up your hydration game. Switch to a richer moisturiser that locks in moisture and combats the dryness of the season. Consider incorporating Murumuru butter, this rich emollient butter has been clinically tested to decrease TEWL (Trans-Epidermal Water Loss) and improve skin barrier protection. Murumuru butter is a natural skin hydrating and emollient wax, obtained by cold pressing the Astrocaryum palm kernels. It is rich in lauric and myristic acids which give excellent emollient properties whilst creating a protective film on the skin to retain water found in our Daily Base™ Wonder Cream.
2. Sun Protection: Just because summer is over doesn't mean you can skip the sunscreen. The sun's UV rays are still active and can cause damage. Continue using a broad-spectrum SPF to protect your skin.
3. Antioxidant Boost: Incorporate products rich in antioxidants, like vitamin C essences. These can help combat free radicals, reduce sunspots, and enhance your skin's natural glow.
4. Lip Care: Our lips often bear the brunt of the cold, becoming chapped and dry. Invest in a good lip oil or treatment to keep them soft and supple. Did you know our Daily Base™ Revive Oil can double up as a lip oil as well as it's usual 3-in-1 hydrate, cleanse & condition.
