Hot July days are gone, and September is on its way in! As you phase out shorts and tank tops for cardigans and leggings, it’s important to help prepare your skin for Autumn. If you’ve had a great summer lounging around the pool or playing volleyball at the beach, there’s probably a bit of summer sun damage you’d like to nip in the bud. The big three problems you’ll need to target are dark spots, hydration and moisturise. As the weather gets chillier and the winds pick up, you’ll need to make sure your skin is still getting – and keeping – the moisture it needs. Here are three great products to help prepare your complexion for Autumn. The holy trinity of winter if you like.
VITAL C Hydrating Antioxidant ACE Serum (€67.00)
It’s easy to let your skincare routine slide a little when you’re busy enjoying the summer. But sunny weather is not too forgiving, and your skin loses hydration even faster while you’re out enjoying the heat. As we move towards Autumn it’s important to re-hydrate for a supple, youthful glow.
To that end, VITAL C Hydrating Antioxidant ACE Serum is a concentrated essence infused with vitamins A, C, E, and a blend of plant antioxidants that help to reduce the visible signs of aging in part by hydrating your skin. Everyone knows that dry skin is more vulnerable to imperfections such as fine lines. To combat dryness, VITAL C Hydrating Antioxidant ACE Serum was formulated with sodium hyaluronate, the gold standard for hydration.
ILUMA Intense Brightening Serum (€52.50)
Summer wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t out and about, enjoying the warmth and soaking up the sun by the beach. Unfortunately, too much of this can lead to dark spots and an uneven complexion. We know that you have been diligent with SPFbut we still want you to be bright.
To help prepare your skin for Autumn, you might want something to add all-over radiance to your skin. ILUMA Intense Brightening Serum is a blend of botanical brighteners and vitamin C in a quick-absorbing serum. The serum was specifically formulated to help provide a calming and brightening solution for irritated, sun-damaged skin.
VITAL C Hydrating Repair Crème (€78.50)
Last but definitely not least is making sure to boost the moisturization component of your skincare routine for cooler and dryer weather. When the cold sets in, most of us tend to take steamy showers. While a great way to stay warm, steamy showers strip away your body’s natural moisture. To keep hydration locked in, use VITAL C Hydrating Repair Crème, a rich reparative crème which quenches dryness while comforting irritated skin. The superstar ingredient here is ceramides. Simply put, ceramides are fats that occur naturally in the skin, holding skin together and forming a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage from environmental stressors. Great to keep your skin supple even with the heating on full blast !
