We need to admit it: summer is fading fast and nights are pulling in. We’ve got bigger fish to fry than sitting around pouting the end of the warm season. It’s time to pack the sandals, sweep aside the swimsuit and start turning on the central heating. The change in season doesn’t just involve different clothes and cosy homes. Like our home and bodies, our skin care routine has to adapt to seasonal changes. To keep it in the perfect condition, we need to understand its innate cycle and indulge it accordingly.
- AUTUMN, THE TRANSITIONAL PHASE
Humidity levels tend to decrease during Autumn and Winter. The drier the air, the less moisturised is our skin. When our skin is no longer ‘protected’ by tan, it becomes pale, loses tone and dehydrates. The hands get affected the most.
Feel radiant every day with our intensely Moisturising Hand Cream that nourishes, soothes and repairs your skin. Scientifically formulated with the rich moisture of a butter and lightness of a lotion, this non-greasy body cream is the perfect way to revitalise dry skin and give you a supple, youthful glow from top to toe.
Apart from our hands, our skin, overwhelmed by autumn’s seasonal changes, requires a moisturising routine that will give it back its glow. Time to pamper it with soft scrubs and beneficial treatments. Our award-winning Body Scrub won’t disappoint you. It uses a gentle yet effective combination of multi-grain natural salt, skin-loving oils and sugar to draw in moisture, smooth away imperfections and reveal the healthy, youthful skin beneath. Perfect for skin transition to colder months!
- WINTER SKIN, WHEN EPIDERMIS LIES DORMANT
During colder months, our winter skin hibernates. Why? It has to confront wind, rain and drastic temperature changes between warm homes and the freezing outdoors. This results in an inactive state of the epidermis and, thus, our skin can lose its healthy brightness. Our epidermis needs a rest. It blurts for richer moisturisers and natural ingredients. Try applying a natural avocado face mask. It can help you regulate your skin epidermis’ regular production of oil and dryness, reducing shine and keeping your skin supple. When temperatures decrease, a hot bath is super-enticing, especially if you’ve spent the day outdoors in the freezing cold. After all, there’s nothing more relaxing than a long soak in the bubbles or a nice soothing shower.
Sorry to rain on your parade but try to resist the temptation for the sake of your complexion if you can. Hot baths and showers can dissolve the protective barrier in the winter skin which will eventually lead to dryness. You can instead have a warm – not hot- bath and plump it up with our Limited-edition Verdure Soybean Candle. Our soy wax is 100% vegetable and can be used as Moisturising Oil once the candle is lighted up.
