Autumn is a time to set your intention for your skin reinvention.
Summer in the Mount – sand, sun surf…. But also sunscreen, sunburn, pigmentation, blocked pores, congested and thickened skin. Autumn is a time to set your intention for your skin reinvention.
It’s time to peel
A skin peel is always a great way to kick start Autumn. Peels range from gentle to intense and there is one for every skin goal. Whether you want to just gently resurface dull skin or completely remove pigmentation that has taken over, a peel will refresh your skin and give you a fresh, blank canvas from which to paint the skin of your dreams.
Vitamin C for the morning
Vitamin C always, but especially post skin peel. This antioxidant scavenges free radicals, protecting the skin from extrinsic stress caused by pollution and excess sun. It is also essential for the brightening of dull skin and the creation and protection of collagen. Think of vitamin C as your topical morning green smoothie, essential for skin health and the perfect ingredient for optimal skin wellbeing.
Retinol for the evening
Hands down one of the best age management ingredients. Put simply, retinol teaches our cells to behave like young cells. Among the many benefits of retinol, it increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen and elastin production. It can increase the appearance of firmness by plumping up fine lines and wrinkles and improves uneven skin tone, treating pigmentation and smoothing the surface of the skin. A good retinol will be easy to use and replace your full evening regime. Cleanse, retinol, bed. Easy and effective!
Future-proof your skin
In Autumn, take the time to consider how you want your skin to look, how you want to age and what’s important to you in the area of skin and wellbeing. Now that the summer crazy is over, book facials for yourself for the whole year – a day each month or each season, just for you. Take the time to have an in-depth consultation and to make a plan. It will save you time and money in the long term to have a plan, to stick with it and like everything, watch the skin seeds you sew now grow and bloom as the years go by.
