Autumn Health and Beauty Restored and Reimagined

Following on from summer’s fresh-faced focus – autumn is the time to strip back and replenish.

With the change in seasons, comes a change in weather – the air becomes cooler and less humid – but reaching for the central heating thermostat can take its toll on our skin, leaving it feeling drier, tighter and in need of some TLC.

Here we share our top tips to help you to restore, rejuvenate and refresh this October.

Face It

Outstep autumn’s changes and support your skin’s natural barrier by switching up your skincare routine. Invest in a hydrating cleanser such as [ comfort zone’s ] Essential Milk Silkening Cleanser, allowing you to keep the freshness without compromising on richness. Pack away your lighter face creams and choose a more nourishing product such as ishga’s Anti-Oxidant Marine Cream to intensively protect your skin from the elements.

It also helps to ditch the booze! Now we’re not talking the odd glass of wine or gin but the alcohol content which can often be found in many cosmetics. Opt for alcohol-free products for a gentler, soothing approach to make-up and skincare.

And even though the temperature is getting lower, you still need to keep hold of the SPF. We may be grabbing an extra jumper as we enjoy those walks through autumn leaves but even if it’s just peeping behind clouds, the sun’s rays will still be impacting on your skin. Choose a daily moisturiser and foundation with added SPF to help to protect from harmful rays, whilst keeping your complexion glowing. Discover [ comfort zone’s ] new sun care range here >    

Body Works

Replenish from tip to toe… your seasonal skincare kick shouldn’t just be face focused. We may be protecting and warming our skin with chunky knits and snuggly scarfs but it’s important to take time to indulge and restore. Investing in a nourishing body oil is a great autumn wellness hack – making a huge difference to the appearance and the health of your skin. Caudalie’s cult favourite, Divine Oil is perfect at this time of year. Apply to damp skin, or even add a few drops into your bathwater, and you’ll soon see the benefits locking in the skin’s moisture content and encouraging better elasticity and gorgeous fragrances for day-long indulgence.

Coat of Many Colours

Why not add a pop of colour to your make-up routine and switch up your look as we step into autumn.

Opt for smokey, whistful eyes – full of greys and muted metals – toned with the amazing autumnal colour palette of deep luscious reds and delicious berry tones.

While the ‘classic’ look is king – autumn is also imagined with modern hues and flashes of brilliance. We’ve not left the impact of neons and glitters completely behind – but this season it’s the copper and burnt orange undertones which are popping through.  Mii Cosmetics’ ColourPlay Palette is a great place to start.
