DITCH DRY SKIN THIS AUTUMN…HERE’S HOW

Top Autumn skin care tips revealed

Autumn has arrived – and in the wake of the summer heat, we’re more than ready to embrace cooler days and all the good things to come including chunky knitwear, homemade soup, brisk walks and cosy nights in.

While enjoying all the delights autumn has to offer, one thing you won’t want to embrace is dry skin. Dry, itchy, and flaky skin sadly seems to be synonymous with the season, as the air cools it contains less moisture and this alone can be extremely drying to the skin, add stronger winds and warmer indoor temperatures and your skin is going to feel the effects. 

Just because the season has changed shouldn’t mean your complexion changes too, ditch dry skin and maintain a complexion that’s dewy and moisture-full this autumn with our top autumn skin care tips.

Hot water

HOLD OFF WITH THE HOT WATER…

Yes, it’s cooler, yes the thought of a steaming hot shower to warm the soul sounds appealing, but stop right there, very hot water does not do your skin any favours. Our outermost skin cells help our skin retain moisture by producing a very thin layer of oil, super-hot water breaks that natural moisture barrier – so keep it cooler and experience the benefits.

THE RIGHT SKIN CARE SELECTION... 

Making a kind and caring skin care choice is important all yearroundd, but especially so during the cooler months. Soap and skin cleansers that contain soap and chemicals can be extremely dehydrating, if your skin feels tight and taught after cleansing, your skin care is having a drying effect. Santé by ENJO skin care range uses fine fibres that cleanse and exfoliate your skin with nothing but the skin-loving properties of water, revealing bright, beautiful and hydrated skin.

Coconut oil

MOISTURISE WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT…

Extra hydration to help combat drying autumn air will benefit your skin on so many levels, from feeling soft and comfortable to looking bright and happy. Choose a natural, organic moisturiser and use on freshly cleansed skin. Apply when the skin is still a little damp, this will help lock-in extra moisture while letting the nourishing skin-loving properties of the moisturiser work its magic.

Drink up for dewy skin

DRINK-UP FOR DEWY SKIN…

Cooler climes naturally see you reaching for a refreshing glass of water less often…perhaps indulging in another hot tea or coffee instead? We tend to drink more when the temperature soars which is great, but a big autumn skin care mistake is not maintaining your water intake as the temperature cools. Remember that caffeinated drinks act as a diuretic (causing your body to lose even more water), so make sure you’re hydrating from the inside out and drinking plenty of water throughout the day, opt for herbal or green teas as a warming alternative. 

Use sun screen

DON’T SKIMP ON THE SUN SCREEN… 

The autumn sun can shine just as bright, which is why there is still every reason to apply sun protection to exposed areas of the skin. UV rays damage the skin cells at the molecular level, and not only that, prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from the skin. Make sure you’re protected and your skin stays hydrated and happy.

Exfoliate weekly

EXFOLIATE EVERY WEEK… 

Exfoliation is a beautiful-skin must all year round, and even more so in autumn, when we’re most likely to experience dry and flaky skin. Santé Exfoliator Discs are the answer to skin-loving, earth-loving exfoliation, uniquely woven fibre discs that slough off old and dead skin cell and promote healthy skin circulation and brand new shiny skin cells. Gentle but effective.

Diet

DIET DOES HELP… 

Eating seasonal, fresh produce will mean you’re always getting what your body needs for the season. To supply your skin with all the moisturising goodness from the inside think fatty fish high in omega-3 like salmon and tuna, nuts and avocados that are good sources of natural fats and skin-loving vitamin E!
