Summer has come to an end, the days are becoming shorter and temperatures are getting colder, and you bet the airs going to get drier. Autumn is among us.
As I’m sure many of you will be gutted to be swapping your sunnies for scarves, there are still some loveable aspects to this season such as the knitwear, pretty colours, pumpkin spice lattes, hot chocolates, bonfires and let’s not forget most important – Halloween.
But whilst these all sound very exciting, colder temperatures can take a toll on your skin.
Autumn is an ideal time to repair your skin from any sun damage, and rejuvenate for the snowy months to come. Skin hydration is even more important but more difficult to achieve during this time, so we have explored some fabulous skincare remedies, which have been specially formulated to help you to stay revitalized during this season.
Steam Cream is a natural moisturiser that hydrates and replenishes the skin. It is hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types including sensitive, or skin that may be prone to eczema or psoriasis. Although the product is formulated for the face it is suitable for the body too, so you won’t have to fork out for numerous moisturisers for everywhere else!
They come in range of cute and quirky packaging to suit your personality (but we selected this one as Halloween is creeping upon us).
This wonderful facemask has been clinically proven to help minimize the damaging impact pollution has on our skin. The formula helps to strengthen skin against environmental antagonists and prevents impurities from clinging to the skin. This is perfect for protection during the cold weather and any toxins in the air.
This lovely light moisturiser, is oil free and perfect for oily or combination skin. This has been traditionally used to calm irritated and inflamed skin so it is ideal for harsher weather conditions.

As it explains in the name, this facial oil has been specially designed for use during Autumn. The delicate fusion of plant oil sooths and regenerates post-summer skin, as well as providing a calming and relaxing aroma of jasmine, grapefruit, green mandarin and lemon.

Honest do a great lip balm with cocoa and spearmint that is designed to help lips in need of protection and keep those smoochers in top condition and crack-proof, as the days become shorter.
We thought this one would be particularly fitting for the Halloween season. Sweet Pumpkin Body Wash is made from pumpkin topped with a touch of cinnamon and clove, accompanied by sweet maple to create the ultimate fragrance for fall. All ingredients are natural and have been formulated for all skin types. This body wash also triples up as a facial cleanser and hand soap and cleans you without stripping away any natural oils.
This Glossier face wash is fab because it can be used as a typical wash or a makeup remover. The creamy formula is constructed from five skin conditioners leaving your face feeling extra soft and healthy. After all, it’s much more about moisturising than exfoliating during autumn.
