As the days get shorter and the temperature cools your skin is bound to react to the change in season. In order to keep your complexion at bay all year round we’ve compiled our top 5 autumnal skincare tips.
1. Tailor Your Routine
Switching from a Summer of Sunshine to the cooler months of Autumn is a recipe for dry, dehydrated skin, to keep flaky skin at bay you must ensure that skin stays revitalized and hydrated at all times. Regular cleansing will remove any dull, dead skin cells whilst a rich cream moisturiser will help to keep your complexion balanced, hydrated and glowing.
2. Warning! Sunny Intervals
Just because you’re swapping your sandals for your sneakers doesn’t mean you can skip the sunscreen. Overcast sun is just as dangerous to your skin as bright sun light. Shield your skin on a daily basis by applying sunscreen each morning. For extra protection try using a mineral based makeup with sunscreen included.
3. Post Sun Skin
Hyperpigmentation or sun spots occur when the body produces too much melanin. Many men and women find their sun spots become more visible during Autumn as their natural tan has faded away, leaving the darker patches more noticeable. At You By Sia we recommend adding our specialised mask Erase into your skin routine once a week, this intensive treatment will gently resurface the top layer of skin, removing excess sebum and reducing the look of pigmentation.
4. Banish Those Blemishes
The Summer months are made for days at the beach, festivals and feeling comfortable in our own skin. Many who suffer from acne scarring spend the Summer months concerned about keeping their face covered up and concealed. Autumn is the time to banish those blemishes and the scars they leave behind! Use the cooler months as an opportunity to book in for a course of Skin Needling. This non-invasive treatment can help to relieve your skin of acne scars, leaving you to get on and enjoy the Summer months when they finally come back around.
5. Taught, Tight, Young Skin
Summer is a time to socialise and utilise the great outdoors, however we are all well aware that the sun ages our skin causing it to wrinkle and sag. The quieter less social months of Autumn is the perfect time to complete any anti-ageing skin treatments which you were too time poor for in Summer.
