Whilst we in Auckand were blessed with a totally awesome Summer, Autumn is slowly setting in and the cooler mornings and dark nights are telling us that winter is only a couple of months away! Most skins favor the humid climates and as the moisture begins to drop from the air at this time of year, we begin to notice our skins becoming more dehydrated.
Now is a great time of year to re-asses your skincare regime and change things up for the winter months. If you are in Auckland you can book a Skin Consultation with one of our Facialist’s. Otherwise here are some simple tips to help you shake things up!
Some ways to combat the winter dehydration is to mix up your soaking ritual. If you have ever had a facial with us, you will be aware of the soaking ritual and how all our Facialist’s are obsessed with moisture in our skin! Try a different fragrance for your soaking drops. My new obsession is the Soothing Soaking Drops. The rich, herbal smell is so warming and calming on the senses and will be a great one to get you through winter. Remember to keep your water warm, but not super hot.
Change your cleanser to something more nourishing to ensure you are locking more lipids into your skin. We love an oil or cream based cleanser in the winter months. A couple of my favourites are the Emma Lewisham Illuminating Oil Cleanser, Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser and the Janesce Solutions Cleanser.
Add a treatment oil into your regime to boost skins glow and elasticity. My current favourite is the Josh Rosebrook Active Infusion Oil it contains Vitamin A & C and is a great one for anyone experiencing loss of firmness, dullness and lack-lusture skin.
If you are in air-conditioning all day, keep one of our hydrating, floral mists at your desk for easy hydration of tired, dull skin. Spritz onto skin several times throughout the day to combat the drying effects of air conditioning, refresh makeup and restore skins natural glow!
