After a long, eventful summer, September is finally here, and with that comes a change in priorities when it comes to your skincare routine.
The end of summer and the start of autumn is a particularly unique time for your skin, as the weather is still warm and sunny, but it is time to start making transitions in our skincare to prepare for the cooler autumnal and winter weathers.
It is a time to be bold, to explore options at your skin therapy clinic and start to lay the foundation of your post-summer routine. Here are some of our top tips.
Start Your Retinol Treatment
Retinols, a vital vitamin A treatment that boosts collagen production and skin renewal, often isn’t used in the summer because they can increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.
It is best to get started with it early because retinol can take up to 12 weeks for you to notice the difference.
Get A Humidifier
As winter sets in, most people will turn on central heating systems or sit in front of a fire, which can, unfortunately, cause your skin to dry out.
An easy remedy for this is to invest in a humidifier to keep the air moisture at a healthy level and help your skin look fabulous.
Do Not Forget Vitamin E
Over the summer, pollution levels can deplete our stocks of the valuable antioxidant vitamin E, and the most effective way to replenish this is to use a moisturising cream or oil rich in vitamin E.
