Changing seasons, autumn colours, crisper nights – all lovely, but the change in temperature and return of central heating can play havoc with our beauty routines.
But don’t panic! Embrace exfoliation, give your skin a bit of moisturising love, throw in some essential vitamins, and you’ll be ready to face the elements in no time. Here are our top five rescue remedies for boosting your autumn beauty regime:
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm £25
Renowned throughout the beauty industry for its ability to transform even the most tired, stressed (and, dare we say it, hungover) faces, this is skin rescue in a tube. Witch hazel and olive extracts soothe irritation and redness caused by the onset of autumn weather. Perfect for giving you a luminous glow.
Organic Surge Gentle Meadow Shower Gel, £2.72
As the mornings get darker, wrap yourself in a haze of lavender and geranium and eke out the last memories of summer with this divinely-scented shower gel.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream £19
Wearing flats and flip flops throughout the summer hardens our feet, leaving us feeling dry-footed and rough-skinned, rather than twinkly-toed. Yes, this foot cream is on the expensive side, but a little goes a long way. After a few days of the velvety shea butter working its magic, you’ll be ready to embrace the return of tights and pull on those autumn boots.
Origins Modern Friction £33
Lemon oil zing to boost your senses, aloe vera to soothe sluggish skin, and microdermabrasion to gently exfoliate dry patches – we love this product for an easy way to give our skin a pick-me-up.
Soap and Glory, The Righteous Body Butter £10.50
Follow-up your exfoliation with a decent body butter to lock-in skin’s moisture and maintain that healthy glow. Try this gorgeous creamy number from Soap and Glory for silky-smooth skin.
