Like every other season, autumn’s arrival can impact the health of your skin. Here are some changes you can expect, and how to prepare for them.
Expect dry skin
The harsh, dry autumn air is known to turn radiant, supple looking skin into a dull and dry canvas.
Your skin can feel itchy, parched or appear red and botchy.
Some may experience flare ups of conditions like eczema/atopic dermatitis or psoriasis and the likes. While others may struggle with cracked heels or peeling finger tips and cuticles.
The change is usually noticeable, frustrating and can be extremely uncomfortable. But prevention is key, and thankfully, it’s easy to do with our nourishing Manuka honey range.
Hydration is key
Sudden seasonal changes can make it seem like your trusted products aren’t working quite as well as they should. But, what’s more likely is that your skincare regimen isn’t tailored to compete with the new season.
You may need to switch to products that promote hydration, healing and health. Stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day. Eat more food high in vitamin C and D, E and Potassium - these will help boost your skin’s vitality.
Your skin still needs protection
Believe it or not, you can still get sunburnt in autumn. The cool air can be deceiving, and the wind may distract you from feeling the sun’s heat. While the sun may be less noticeable this season, its harsh UV rays still penetrate your skin. You can also experience sunburn from reflective surfaces around you. Be sure to apply sunscreen of at least SPF 15+ every day, to protect your skin from pigmentation, premature ageing and the other effects of sun damage.
Autumn is a sneaky, short season- but it can have such an impact on your day-to-day life. As you adjust your dally habits this season, be sure to do the same with your skincare routine.
