Sun-kissed skin, freckly noses and looser limbs... there is no denying that summer applies that real-life 'Instagram filter' to our skin and helps us look and feel more relaxed... but after 3 months of sun, sea, salt, sand and dehydration - this month it's all about repairing the damage and getting back your glow - let us help you...
Summer dehydration can cause fine lines and a general dullness to your skin. Look to boost your skin's hydration levels by adding a Hyaluronic Acid to your skincare routine, increase your water intake and add our Get Up and Glow Facial Oil to your skincare routine this autumn to lock in the moisture. Roll back any sun damage thanks to the healing powers of Frankincense, while nutrient-packed Sea Buckthorne Oil will nourish and renew. Thinking ahead, the antioxidant-rich green tea oil will protect your skin from the change in weather later in the month.
Sun cream and sweat can block pores and cause breakouts - look for a facial wash containing Salicylic Acid to clear up any breakouts fast.
A build up of dead skin cells can also contribute to patchy, rough and uneven skin. Look for a chemical exfoliant (like glycolic acid, or fruit enzyme formulas for sensitive skins) that will 'eat away' the dead stuff and increase cell turnover, without scratching and damaging new skin underneath, unlike physical exfoliants. Not only will they smooth skin but brighten, too.
It's not just our face - salt, chlorine and sunshine can leave us with parched, scaly, dull limbs in need of a serious injection of moisture. Our Nourish Oil is the perfect addition to your bath, or slather it directly on skin. Rich in oat oil to seal in moisture and rosehip oil for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help regenerate skin. With sweet orange, geranium, bergamot and cardamom - it's a beautiful de-stressing, soothing addition to your beauty regime.
