How to Brighten Up Your Skincare Routine for Autumn

Autumn days are coming! Time for cosy knits, golden leaves and hot chocolates.

Autumn also calls for a need to mix up your skincare routine. As much as we love autumn and cosy-season, it isn’t the kindest to our skin. As the fall in temperature as the autumnal weather starts to creep in, our skin can start to feel dull, dry and generally unhappy.

These are our three favourite quick tips for brightening up your skincare routine for autumn:

 

Keep Thirsty Skin Hydrated

As the temperature levels drop, so do humidity levels which can cause havoc for our skin. The dry, cold air causes our skin to lose moisture. To counter the effects of the dry air, swap your light, summer moisturiser for a rich body butter.

Our Signature collection of body butters are an indulgent and nourishing treat for your skin. With a rich and creamy formula, the Signature body butter helps to provides all day moisturisation. The nourishing blend of Shea Butter and organic Coconut Oil helps to keep skin hydrated and thanks to being fast-drying and non-greasy, you can pull on your favourite knitted jumper and keep the autumnal chill at bay.

Caring for dehydrated skin doesn’t stop with a good moisturiser. Did you know your body wash could also be contributing to your dry, tight skin? However quick your morning shower might be, that doesn’t mean it can’t be filled with nourishing skincare treats. Our beautifully-scented Signature body washes contain skin-loving moisturisers, including Pro Vitamin B5, to leave your body feeling cleansed, moisturised and silky smooth. So, even the quickest of showers can be a hydrating treat for your skin.

 

Get Your Scrub On

Autumn is prime-time for exfoliating. You’re probably already well-aware that exfoliating during Summer helps keep your skin glowing and sun-kissed. However, this step of your skincare regime becomes even more important during Autumn.

As the weather cools down, your skin becomes dull and dry. If you find that your skin is still looking dull after lathering on the rich, moisturising creams, it might be time to treat yourself to an exfoliating scrub.

 

Dry, flaky skin occurs as a result of dead skin cells that build up and create a barrier that prevents nourishing creams and butters from being absorbed into your skin. The exfoliation step in your skincare regime works to buff away dead skin cells, revealing brighter, healthier-looking skin. Exfoliating can also help control the build-up of oils that cause blemishes and blackheads.

Our I LOVE Original Shower Smoothies are the perfect in-shower exfoliator. Filled with natural almond shells, these shower smoothies lather up a treat and help buff away dead skin cells and impurities to reveal glowing, rejuvenated skin.

 

Protect Hands From The Colder Weather

We love the crisp Autumn air but it sure can take a toll on our hands.  Although hand care may not be everyone’s primary concern, our hands are often the first to suffer from exposure to chilly winds and air.

Our hands are delicate, causing them to be prone to dryness, irritation and cracking. To keep your hands soft and supple, make sure you always keep a nourishing hand cream in your bag so your hands can enjoy a hit of hydration whenever they need it.

The I LOVE range of conditioning hand and nail creams contain nourishing shea butter and coconut oil that’s quickly absorbed to leave hands feeling intensively moisturised, soft and hydrated. These hand moisturisers also contain natural skin-loving vitamins including Pro Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E for an extra hydrating hit.
