AutumnAs summer turns to autumn, appreciate the beautiful colours and shades as nature gradually winds down until the spring. Be mindful, however, that the effects of central heating when indoors and cold air outside while outdoors, combine to dry and irritate.

Here are three handy tips to helping your skin cope:

Diet and Hydration

Remember to drink plenty of water to help keep hydrated. Try to eat more foods and fruits that are high in antioxidants and full of vitamins and minerals. Antioxidants will protect against winter colds and help to brighten and improve the look of your skin.

Protect and Nourish

During the cold autumn and winter it is wise to use a more substantial moisturiser. This will provide extra protection and nourishment for your skin. Consider Eureka Cream or Illumination Cream, both brilliant for deep moisturising a very dry face. Also ideal on cracked dry hands and cuticles and sore cracked soles of feet.

Repair and Maintain

For people who may be prone to eczema or psoriasis, it is important to moisturise regularly, little and often to maintain the skin at its best. Choose Angel Lip Balm, use frequently to avoid chapped or cracked lips. Use around the mouth at night time too. Ultimate Body Oil in a weekly bath or neat on the body to keep the skin soft and supple.
