SBC Autumn Skincare Overhaul
Why do we need to switch-up our Autumn Skincare routine?
Autumn is here! The days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping, and the leaves are falling…
We might be looking forward to getting back into our onesies, indulging in toffee nut lattes and swapping beer gardens for cosy nights in. However Autumn and Winter air doesn’t mean good things for our skin.
It is not uncommon for our complexions to become dull, dehydrated and sensitive as the Autumn starts to cloud over. What affects our skin the most is the drier, much cooler air and central heating which can jeopardise the skin’s protective barrier function.
What Autumn Skincare Changes should we make?
When it comes to cleansing your skin is craving a gentle, non-foaming wash-off cleanser – also avoid using hot water as this will leach away your skin’s essential lipids – which maintain the strength of the skin’s protective barrier – opt for lukewarm.
Consider SBC’s Collagen 3-in-1 Cleanser, a creamy, hydrating cleanser, enriched with nourishing ingredients to keep your skin moisturised.
The key to Autumn Skincare Routines is all about the moisturiser. It is time to bid adieu to the lightweight moisturiser you’ve been opting for over the summer and bulk up with a more nourishing texture.
We recommend using a barrier-strengthening moisturiser that contains key ingredients to support your skin’s outermost layer and help reduce sensitivity. Our New Hydra Collagen Intensive Moisturiser is packed with deeply hydrating ingredients to get you through the colder months, including Marine Collagen, Rodacea, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
If you suffer from particularly dry, dehydrated skin, Serums make a great addition to your routine as they deliver a potent dose of hydration, to keep your complexion plump and radiant.
During those colder months, you’ll want to load up on thicker textures, nourishing body creams and rich Body Washes to keep your skin smooth, hydrated, and soft as ever. First on our Autumn Skincare and Body Care rescue wish-list is HONEY!
Here are some of our sweet, nourishing formulas you’ll be glad to have on hand this winter…
The Winter Fave – Honey Body Butter
If you’re looking for a no-fail formula, this creamy Butter enriched with nature’s key skin soother is your best bet. The thick consistency, warm, sweet scent of honey, and soothing moisture make this one a classic choice for good reason.
The Lightweight – Propolis & Safflower Body Milk
Although packed with rich hydrators such as Safflower Seed Oil, Propolis and Vitamin E, this moisturiser is light and airy to the touch. It penetrates deep to give your body that long-lasting nourishment it needs without leaving a greasy finish behind.
The Floral Choice – Manuka Honey & Orange Blossom Body Butter
A luxurious addition to your Autumn Skincare routine. The spa-like aroma is an alluring blend of orange blossom, bergamot, jasmine, rose, and warm honey. This body butter is a popular one because of the decadent mix of Manuka Honey, Kukui Seed Oil and Shea Butter to nurture and really help lock in moisture. Add this Body Butter to the end of your evening pamper ritual and experience all the serenity your mind, body, and soul need.
