Autumn Skincare with SBC – Tricks & Treats!
Leaves are crunching under our feet, dark, cosy evenings are with us and we’re back in our favourite boots.
Autumn is here, where the shift to cooler temperatures and central heating, is known to wreak havoc on the skin! Trans-seasonal skin can often become dry, dehydrated, dull and just a tad bad-tempered. Discover SBC’s tricks and treats for looking after your skin to keep it soft, and glowing as we head towards winter…
Your SBC Autumn Skincare Routine…
Trick: Switch your cleanser
Switch your cleanser for one that’s a little more nourishing. Try our new Coconut & Plumeria Conditioning Cream Cleanser to remove make-up, deeply cleanse and nourish your skin in one luxurious step. If you love the Hydra-Collagen Replenishing Cream Cleanser (Collagen 3-in-1 Cleanser), we are sure you will love this one too!
Treat: Hydrating serums
Serums are non-negotiable in our skincare routines and we highly recommend incorporating one into yours. Hunt down skincare super-ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, in your serums for an instant hydration hit.
Apply your serum to damp skin immediately after cleansing. Green Caviar Perfecting Serum encompasses Hyaluronic Acid and Green Caviar, a plant extract from Japanese seaweed, to help increase your skin’s hydration levels.
Trick: Intensify your moisturiser
We all love a super-light moisturiser in the warmer months but now autumn has arrived, it’s time to bring out the big guns. By ‘big guns’ we mean ‘richer formulas’ like our Hydra-Collagen Intensive Moisturiser… Just look at that texture!!
Nourish, plump and smooth your skin with this luxurious formula. If you still prefer a lighter texture for daytime use, just switch it up once a day – and opt for this richer formula in your evening routine.
Use a gentle exfoliator, once or twice a week, to smooth skin and keep a dull, flaky complexion at bay. We hope you have discovered the new Hydra-Collagen Exfoliating Balm by now.
This complexion-enhancing formula combines Salicylic Acid and Pumice to remove dead skin cell build-up. The rich combination of nourishing oils will leave your skin soft, radiant and glowing.
Your SBC Autumn Body Care Routine:
Trick: Nourishing body cleansers are a good place to start.
Like your face care, your Autumn body care should start with cleansing. SBC’s body washes are special for several reasons. They gently cleanse, nourish and care for your skin, and all benefit from unique aromas to make your shower and bath rituals truly indulgent experiences.
Soothe as you cleanse with these gentle, sulphate-free body washes. Here are a couple of our autumn faves (they just so happen to look very autumnal too)…
Trick – Serum for your body too? Erm… Yes!
Something we are very proud of at SBC is that our body care is just as clever as our face care. We launched the Acid Collection earlier this year, which is ideal for autumn/winter to avoid dull, dry skin. It includes the Glycolic Resurfacing Body Serum which you apply after cleansing and before moisturising, to boost your skin making sure it stays silky smooth and glowing with health and radiance.
Treat – Keep your body nourished
The final step in your body care routine, some may say a bit of nuisance, is deep moisturisation. This is the most indulgent step. The SBC body butters will leave your skin so silky smooth you’ll struggle to stop touching it!
Although all our body butters are rich and luxurious, one that is particularly ideal for this time of the year is the Propolis Body Butter. Propolis will make sure your skin behaves through the cooler months and keep every inch of your skin beautifully healthy and nourished. Find out more about our precious Propolis and why it is such a popular collection here in our Focus on Propolis Blog…
Treat – Don’t neglect your hands
Last, but by no means least, hands may be a little more parched than normal this year. So always keep a super-moisturising hand cream withing reach to help keep mitts looking and feeling tiptop too. Our new (beautifully aromatic) Calendula & Macadamia Renewing Hand & Foot Cream will help hands preserve precious moisture, whilst conditioning and softening skin to keep hands silky smooth. Throw one in your handbag for easy, on-the-go, reapplication whenever you need it!
There you have it, SBC’s Autumn skin and body care tips to keep skin feeling soothed, nourished and ready for whatever winter has in store
