Most autumn days bring with them a wealth of skin-damaging factors, from bad and changeable weather to increased stress to the wind whipping at your face.
This year, however, with increased sanitisation methods to stop the spread of Covid-19, there is a concern that the chemicals used to fight the virus at the front of every shop, bar and restaurant are not great for your skin.
Here are our top tips for keeping your skin beautiful this autumn.
Hand sanitisers contain high amounts of alcohol, which when mixed with the constant washing and rubbing of the gels and liquids into your skin can make your skin feel sore, cracked and dry.
Just as important as your skin cleaning routine is your skincare routine, so make sure to use a skin moisturiser afterwards to keep your skin nourished, minimise the risk of skin irritation and soothe dryness.
The weather, with its mix of rains, cold weather, increased heating and strong winds are not the best for your skin.
Having a regular exfoliation routine, such as a daily microfoliant helps encourage skin cell regeneration and gets rid of dead skin cells that might stop your moisturisers or serums from working as effectively.
Whilst you should make sure your skin is well moisturised, do not forget about the rest of your body.
Make sure you are drinking enough water and adding foods that promote healthy skin growth to your diet, to help your skin from within.
