Autumn means cool, crisp days and beautiful views but also dry skin as temperatures drop and sunlight disappears. As the leaves change colour and the days get cooler, you must begin to transition your skincare routine to support your skin. Your support should be topical as well as internal to put your best face forward.
Me Today Skincare helps with all of this to ensure all-around protection. Here are our top 10 beauty tips for autumn.
- Invest in a Good Moisturiser
As the weather gets colder, our skin becomes dry and irritated. A good quality moisturiser will help to protect your skin from the elements and keep it hydrated.
Our Women's Daily Moisturiser with 9 essential nutrients is the best moisturiser for everyday use and can be paired with our Night Cream for long-lasting hydration in harsh weather. Add the Women's Daily Supplement, a blend that's specially formulated to enhance and protect your skin, and you will enjoy deeply hydrated skin that's soft and plump even throughout the winter months.
- Use a Lip Balm With SPF
It's a misconception to think that the cloudy autumn season does not require SPF. Your lips are just as susceptible to sun damage as the rest of your skin, so make sure you use a lip balm with SPF in it. This will help to protect your lips from harmful UV rays that are present even in dreary weather.
- Exfoliate Regularly
Skin cells don't turn over as quickly in cold weather as they do in the summer. This can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of our skin, which can make our skin look dull and lifeless. Exfoliating regularly will help to remove these dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin.
Once you've exfoliated, use our Women's Daily Face Mask to add deep hydration back to your skin. It's enriched with vitamins, grape seed, ginseng and aloe vera leaf, among other ingredients, to deeply penetrate and nourish the skin.
- Incorporate a Serum Into Your Routine
A good quality face serum will help to boost hydration and protect your skin from environmental stressors. Me Today Skincare's Women's Daily Serum is perfect for this as it contains glycerine and sweet almond oil along with powerful antioxidants and vitamins to deeply hydrate and revitalise the skin.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water becomes a chore in cold weather. But it's important to make sure you're drinking enough water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Drink room temperature water or increase the amount of unsweetened tea you drink daily to support your skin's moisture levels.
- Avoid Hot Showers
While a hot shower might feel good on a cold autumn day, it can actually strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it feeling dry and irritated. Stick to lukewarm showers instead and make sure you moisturise afterwards to help lock in hydration.
The Me Today Organic Rosehip Oil is perfect to use to lock hydration into the skin while smoothing and renewing your skin's complexion. Use it daily to help with stretch marks, dry patches, fine lines, and wrinkles while preventing moisture loss from the skin.
- Add a Humidifier to Your Bedroom
Dry indoor air can wreak havoc on your skin, especially during the colder months. Adding a humidifier to your bedroom will help add moisture back into the air, which will in turn help to hydrate your skin.
- Eat Lots of Antioxidant-Rich Foods
Antioxidants are important for keeping our skin healthy and protected from environmental stressors. Adding foods like mixed berries, a range of nuts, dark leafy greens, and cruciferous vegetables into your diet will help to boost your antioxidant intake and improve the overall health of your skin.
- Protect Your Skin From the Cold
When temperatures drop, it's important to make sure you're protecting your skin from the cold. Wearing a scarf over your face when you go outside will help to protect your skin from the wind and cold air.
- Don't Forget About Your Hands
Our hands are one of the first places that show signs of ageing. Start by using our Women's Daily Cream Cleanser formulated with essential nutrients to hydrate your face and hands.
Then make sure you're using a hand cream with SPF in it to protect your hands from the sun.
Autumn Skin Supplements
Taking supplements is a great way to help keep your skin nourished from the inside out. Me Today's Beauty supplement contains hydrolysed marine collagen, which is easily absorbed by the body to support the health of your skin, hair, and nails.
It also contains vitamin C and selenium, which are important for the production of collagen, and zinc, which helps to protect your skin from environmental stressors.
Taking just one capsule a day of our Beauty supplement helps to improve the overall health of your skin. It's also recommended that we take a vitamin D supplement in the autumn and winter months when the sun plays peekaboo behind the clouds and we aren't outside as much because of the cold.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium, which is important for bone health. It also helps to boost our immune system and keep our skin healthy. The Me Today Vitamin D3 supplement is perfect for this as it's in an easy-to-swallow veggie capsule and contains 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per cap.
