The seasons are a-changing, temperatures are dropping, central heating is being turned up, the sun loses its strength and the nights are drawing in, making the Autumn a perfect time to address your beauty, health and fitness regimes. Therefore, this will be a three-part blog whereby we give you some top tips each week on how to shake up your routines to ensure you feel and look your best during what can be a rather tricky season.
Autumn can be a very challenging time for your skin. The change in weather and temperature, not to mention the central heating can really dry out our skin and cause it too look a little dull and often uneven. Here, I have picked my favourite beauty products and top beauty tips that will help you to look totally gorgeous no matter what’s going on outside:
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
A great way to help undo the damage caused by the sun; those with uneven skin tone and/or facial pigmentation should definitely try this serum from Clinique. I have seen this do wonders on people who have had too much sun and bear the brunt of it on their face – one friend had pigmentation on her upper lip that completely disappeared after using the cream. Those that don’t suffer from sunspots or something similar will find that it will just even out the skin tone and make skin silky soft. It’s a win win. Apply before bed and under moisturiser.
Aveda Hair Damage Therapy Intensive Restructuring Treatment Central heating can cause our hair to frizz, fly, knot, dry and break – not to mention that this is all on top of the damage that has been done to it all summer. Aveda has the answer – something that I swear by that will get your locks looking luscious and lovely in no time at all. Damage Therapy Intensive Restructuring Treatment is a weekly treatment that is formulated to deeply penetrate the hair helping to repair it from root to end. It contains quinoa protein too, which will also give it extra shine. Apply from root to end after shampooing and leave on for 5 minutes for best results, then rinse and voila!
Moroccan Rose Otto Body Oil
Its ingredients include the healing Rose Otto Oil, Jojoba, Cranberry Seed
and Argan all of which combine to create the most amazing scent that will
transport your mind back to the holiday your still reliving and the soft, supple
skin you had there. After applying this from head to toe there won’t be a part
of you that won’t glow. It is perfect for dry and dehydrated skin, and therefore
is a great solution to combat the winter chills.
Kiwiherb Calendula Ointment
For those that suffer from eczema or dry skin patches, this ointment (more like a Vaseline in its consistency) is a wonderful, natural solution. Calendula, being a well known healing cream, is also a great soother and therefore seriously helps to heal whatever skin problem Autumn is throwing you. It is also all natural, so apply as much as you want. I found it was fantastic for dry patches under my eyes and for spots, and it’s safe for use on babies too.
