Revamp Your Beauty Routine For AutumnLUX South Africa | 22 May 2017
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. It’s a true sign that Autumn has arrived. So as we bid farewell to summer for the time being and start packing away the shorts and tank tops, it’s easy to start feeling a little down. After all, winter is on it’s way. But it isn’t all bad news! With autumn and winter come nights in front of a fireplace, hot chocolate and movies under a blanket and of course, new makeup and beauty products!
To make sure you give your skin and makeup the attention they deserve over the season change, here are our top tips on how to revamp your routine and switch things up this autumn.
Because winter is on its way, your skin will need more hydration than usual. This goes for your face and your body, so as always, your beauty routine should start in the shower! If you want soft, smooth skin then start by switching over to an extra moisturising bodywash that will help to nourish your skin. The LUX soft touch range is designed to leave your skin feeling beautifully moisturised and silky smooth – just what you need with colder weather on the way. Wash your face every day to keep it clean and clear. A soap like the LUX beauty bar is perfect for getting rid of dirt and oil for the day without irritating your skin. If you can, now would be the perfect time to do an at-home spa session with the entire works! Why not spend a few hours relaxing with face mask, full body exfoliation and nourishing body cream like Vaseline intensive care. Don’t forget the warm bath!
Now that you’ve switched over to something that will protect and care for your body during autumn, it’s time to do the same for your face. Regardless of whether you have oily, dry or combination skin it is essential to moisturise well. Many people with oily skin tend to skip the moisturiser, but this can actually cause breakouts as your skin compensates for the lack of moisture by producing even more oil. The POND’s Perfect Colour Complex range has three different beauty creams suited to different skin types, so there’s really no reason not to moisturise! Once you’ve selected the right moisturiser for your skin type but then be diligent about applying it daily.
If you’ve been using your LUX soap and bodywash regularly, your skin should be soft and smooth. With the perfect canvas in place, it’s time to move on to your makeup! While the bright and cheerful colours of summer are fading, that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous and still use a serious pop of colour to brighten up your day. Autumn looks are all about rich, warm tones. Ditch your shimmery pinks, neons and pastels for hues of brown, gold, plum and bronze. Think of newly-fallen autumn leaves and you should have a good idea of what the perfect colours are to embrace the new season.
