Caring for your Skin this Autumn/Winter

caring-for-peace-this-autumn-winter-image

 

Our skin reacts differently to different weather conditions. As we’re transitioning from summer to autumn and winter, you will experience some changes in our skin.

Summer is loved by many with the bright sunny long days, but the harsh sun rays can take a serious toll on our skin. So autumn and winter should be spent remedying the harm the summer weather has caused to our skin.

During the autumn and winter season, the chilly dry weather can cause our skin to dry out due to lack of moisture in the air. If not treated soon enough, your skin will start to crack or grow flaky or even become red or irritated. To avoid this skin issue, we need to pay special attention to our skin during the autumn/winter months, especially if you have a dry season.

These simple steps will help keep your skin protected from the autumn and winter weather, and heal the damage caused by the summer.

 

  1. Gently exfoliate your skin

Do not underestimate the power of exfoliating, Exfoliation is a very important part of any skin care routine. It helps remove dead skin cells and leaves the face feeling and looking very smooth. I think one of the best parts about exfoliation is that it helps to prepare the skin to easily absorb the benefit from moisturizers or creams.

There are various exfoliators for different skin types so shop around for the best product for your skin. If you have a dry skin, opt for an oil-based scrub. It will help to gently exfoliate your skin and supply it with the needed moisture at the same time. At the moment, I use Clean and Clear Daily Facial Scrub to exfoliate but I have recently bought a No 7 scrub so look out for the review.

 

  1. Cleanse your skin

Start off by gently yet thoroughly cleansing your skin. For autumn, you skin care routine will involve more moisturizing to help keep your skin hydrated. Also ensure the moisture gets locked in so the skin doesn’t dry out. I use this fab face wash by Premae Skincare and it is the truth. It wipes every trance of makeup off.

 

  1. Moisturize

Moisturizers will help keep your skin hydrated, soft and supple. To boost your moisturizer level, go for creams or serums instead of lotions. They are thicker and this forms a more protective barrier on your skin. They will also help prevent your skin from losing water. I am currently loving my No 7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Radiance Boost for All Skin Type. It is the best serum I have ever used.

Apart from moisturizing the face, we also need to remember to moisturize our hands with a good hand cream to prevent cracked, dry and flaky hands. Hello soft hands for that gentle touch!

Another part of our body that will need some TLC are our lips. My lips get so dry during the autumn/winter season so I apply a non-petroleum-based lip balm for better results.

How do you take care of your skin in the autumn/winter months?

Product Review: Premae Harmony Face Wash and Foundation

Premae Vegan Harmony Face Wash Image

I am always on the lookout for great skincare products, especially face washes and cleansers, because I struggle to find the perfect products. Many of the cleansers and face washes do not do the work. Most of the ones I have had the misfortune of using hardly wipe off makeup. I usually find myself cleansing and re-cleansing for ages, which can be very annoying. So you can imagine my reaction when I had the opportunuty to review the Premae Harmony Face Wash and foundations, I jumped at it, obviously.

This vegan face wash is allergen and gluten-free, which is amazing. I am so into vegan products at the moment, I had the pleasure of reviewing some makeup products from The English Mineral Makeup Company, and so far, I have been impressed with all the products I have tried. I can see myself going down the vegan/mineral mkeup route full time now.

 

Here is the Premae face wash product description:

The Coconut-infused wash gently lathers and turns the gel into a rich cleanser excellent for combination and oily skin types. Indonesian Lemongrass fades acne scarring and redness.

Gently removes non-longwear makeup and other impurities. Unclogs pores, cleanses blackheads and excess oil on combination skin. Leaves skin healthy, fresh and oily-free.

Directions: Morning and night as a daily cleanser to purify skin. Use twice daily

I also had the pleasure of trying the Premae Agave Foundation Shade 11 and Cinnamon Foundation Shade 12.

 

Here is the product description:

This foundation has the same technical and scientific attributes as the rest of the multi-award winning Premae Skincare range; it is free-from gluten, nuts and tree nuts, parabens, petrochemicals and SLS.

 

PROS

  1. I love the fact that Premae Skincare caters for the black skin. Women of colour, get in here. This foundation comes in 15 shades from fair, olive, to very dark, so there is a shade for everyone. I tried the Agave shade and the Cinnamon shade, and the Agave is the perfect shade for me, although you can hardly tell the difference.
  2. It is great for all skin types.
  3. It is anti-ageing, antioxidant and Phyto Nutrient (Vegan fruit and herb ingredients).
  4. It provides great buildable coverage. It can go from light to full.
  5. This foundation feels lightweight, airless, breathable and pure. It is safe enough to sleep in.
  6. This is the first healthy foundation formulae – Mango Butter, Jojoba and Rose based. It is one of the best foundations I have ever used.
  7. It stays on for hours, very long-lasting.

CONS

  1. This foundation could be lighter. I like my foundations very light, so there is still a tiny room for improvement.

I recommend the Premae foundation, it is  great product, does all it says it would do and more. It is definitely a foundation to try. If you want to shop this range, use the discount code – Online 30 and get a 30% discount off, valid until 31st December 2016.
