Every season brings about a unique environment for skin and this includes autumn. Coming out of those luscious summer months to darker colder days can affect skin in many ways. At Nakin we produce award-winning natural skincare that works with every season of the year. This is because the amazing plant actives help skin to flourish and thrive whatever the weather conditions are. So, if you are already using Nakin’s amazing skincare products then you have everything that you need to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. However, you can still adapt your skincare routine to get it ready for the colder shorter days of autumn.
As well as the environmental changes in autumn, we spend more time indoors with the heating on, which can be dehydrating to skin. One thing that is recommended in autumn, is good layering of skincare products. In the way that the best option for keeping warm is to wear layers instead of one big coat, the same works for skincare products. So, using a full skincare product range can be really beneficial. Autumn is a time when you might consider adding additional products like our natural face oil to your routine, if you have not used one before. This is because an oil can energise and bring life to skin that can be depleted in the autumn months. A changing season is always a good time to revaluate the products you are using, and the way that you use them. If you are looking to improve your skincare for autumn, then read on to see our advice below.
How to Cleanse Skin in Autumn
A kind cleanser is essential when the temperature drops and our Advanced Cleansing Milk is brilliant, even if your skin is sensitive or reddened. It removes make-up and daily dirt morning and evening, while being kind and without stripping skin. It massages into skin beautifully and can be used in the morning and the evening. Being a milk full of beautiful plant actives means that it also comforts skin, and can be taken off with cotton wool, a muslin or face cloth. After the cleansing milk would be our Purifying Face Toner to remove the last traces of cleanser, revive and detox skin. Plus it clears pores to better receive the actives applied after cleansing. Unlike many face toners, this one is kind and comforting to skin.
Eye Care for Autumn
Many of us start to feel run down in autumn, which is completely natural. We have less daylight and heat to perk us up, and the energy giving vitamin D is in less supply. This often shows in our eyes which may look more run down than normal. Our amazing Eye Cream Complex gives the skin around eyes silky soft hydration and combats dark circles, wrinkles and puffing. It keeps the skin around the eyes looking amazing all year round.
Skin Treatments for Autumn
Skin treatments like oils and serums can really improve your skin barrier, making it stronger and less susceptible to changes in the environment. In autumn we highly recommend adding a face oil to your routine, especially if your skin feels dry or tight in any way. Our Revitalising Face Oil is one of the best natural face oils available as it contains skin enhancing plant oils that hydrate, calm, condition and energise skin. Then follow the oil with our Anti-Ageing Face Serum which is one of the best serums available to help with a multitude of skin requirements like hydration, lines, wrinkles, UV damage and an uneven skin tone. It is like a light lotion but perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin - as like all our products it is made with skin loving plant actives. It also smells beautiful with a delicate scent, similar to freshly washed linen.
How To Moisturise Skin in Autumn
Ramping up hydration in the colder months is always a good idea, but this does not necessarily mean using a really thick cream, as these can often just sit on the surface of the face and neck. The best face creams will sink in beautifully and last all day long to hydrate and protect skin morning and evening. Our Matt Formula Face Cream is a moisturiser for oily, normal, combination and sensitive skin. It provides long lasting smooth hydration without greasiness. The Active Dew Face Cream is for dry, normal, combination and sensitive skin. It gives a dewier finish with a long-lasting formula. There is no need to apply a lot of product if you are also using face treatments like an oil and serum. Light layers of multiple products is the best way to nourish and hydrate skin.
Our brilliant moisturisers have a texture that is not thick or gloopy. Instead the moisturisers act as the final layer to your skincare regime, which is really important in autumn. Even in winter we should not use heavy moisturisers that sit on skin and can even weigh it down and affect the natural functioning. There is also no need to put masses of things on your face; an oil, serum, eye cream and face cream is all that is needed. Make-up can be applied on top if required.
Lip Care for Autumn
One of the biggest things affected by the change of weather is lips, and many of our customers find out about us because they are searching for a good lip product. Dry lips can be really annoying, and many lip balms only serve as a barrier to protect lips from the cold. Our Lip Treatment Balm is one of the best available to nourish lips deep down, even lips that are very dry and cracked. This is because it is full of the best ingredients to soften, hydrate and comfort even dry lips, with amazing plant oils and butters.
We hope that you found our feature helpful about how to adapt your skincare regime for autumn. If you are already using Nakin’s range, then rest assured that it is lovely for skin all year round. During the colder months though, your skin might benefit from an extra layer of product, and a little more time spent on it. The important thing is to always use the best skincare products.
