Autumn Rituals for Glowing Skin

Here are some skin tips that will allow your natural glow to shine.

As we head into Autumn and enjoy the crisper weather and shorter days, the changing season reminds us that life happens in cycles. The arrival of Autumn allows us to slow things down, take time to rest, recuperate, and adopt routines that bring us and our skin into balance.

When the outside temperatures cool, it's worth introducing different products and techniques into our beauty routine that help our skin adapt to seasonal changes.

1. Cleansing

A gentle daily cleansing routine is best - using Micellar water or facial oil to remove makeup and everyday grime without over-stripping the skin of its natural sebum. Cleansing with these products results in no tightness to the skin, which is often associated with some facial cleansers.

2. Plant-Based Oils & Serums

Plant-based oil serums have an essential role in repairing skin. Serums penetrate our dermal layer, delivering antioxidant-rich nourishment to our deeper skin cells. Applying an appropriate blend of pure, plant-based oils to clean skin morning and night will rejuvenate and feed our skin, supplying it with nutrients needed for cell repair.

Of course, we love our products but have enjoyed using other brands too. Our Marula facial oil serum is rich in vitamin E and contains a blend of Marula and Apricot oils; These skin saviours help reduce wrinkles, resulting in younger, more radiant skin. The combination of oils helps keep the skin hydrated for longer, giving the skin a healthy glow.

Or you might want to try Starest Squalane & Rosehip face & body oil, which is rich in fatty acids & antioxidants - excellent for reducing fine lines and locking in moisture for healthy glowing skin.

3. Balms & other moisturisers

Autumn is a great time to think about layering products. Start with an oil serum, then add a tiny amount of your favourite facial moisturiser on top or a natural balm for lips and cheeks.

Oils and Serums penetrate deep into the skin, whereas creams and lotions sit on the skin's surface - the epidermis. The epidermis is the layer that protects us from extreme changes in weather and pollution. As we head into Autumn and cooler weather, we can boost our skincare routine by adding a richer moisturiser or balm.

4. Dry Brushing

Yes, I've regularly blogged about the benefits of body brushing over on Live Well, but it's worth mentioning again. Dry brushing is the best way to kick-start our immune system by gently detoxifying our skin through this simple ritual. If you haven't tried body brushing before, begin with light strokes using a body brush in a circular movement, paying particular attention to the thighs and upper arms. Brushing dry skin with gentle intentional strokes improves lymphatic circulation, helps remove dead skin cells and enables body oils and moisturisers to hydrate the skin better.

5. Self-Massage

Massaging our skin is a great way to increase blood flow, stimulate collagen and relax tense muscles. It's one of the easiest ways to improve skin quality and add natural radiance. You can use various tools, but massaging with your fingers can be just as effective. Light pressure using a circular motion on the lower jaw and forehead releases tension and helps circulation.

Hands and feet need some extra attention. Massaging lotions and creams into our hands and feet during the Autumn months is essential, so you avoid cracked heels and rough, chapped fingers.

Proper hydration boosts energy and promotes smooth, plumped skin by drinking water and healthy beverages like green tea and fresh fruit juices.
