A change in seasons signals a time of change in our beauty regime. You may well be thinking about packing away the last remnants of SPF as the outside temperature drops, however, hang onto that bottle of UV combating cream and put it next to your daily moisturiser. Although it may not be warm enough to contemplate throwing on your bikini those sinister UV rays are still about, in fact they never pack their bags to leave. We are susceptible to UV damage throughout the year. It might be a grey, miserably overcast day but the UVB and UVA rays are always present and these chaps are out for destruction. My advice is to apply SPF of at least 15 throughout the autumn and winter along with your moisturiser. Doing this one little thing each day will stave of the potential damage of ageing sun damage. Seek out an SPF specially designed for the face. French pharmacies stock them year round so are easily sourced and well worth the investment.
Taking time out for a hydrating and vitamin packed restorative facial also pays dividends at this time of year. Post summer stressed and frazzled skin can be soothed back into good health with a nourishing mask. Look for collagen or algae masks to re-plump, rehydrate and reinvigorate sun parched skin or go the whole sensuous hog and opt for a chocolate facial that not only revives a lack lustre complexion but also satisfies the olfactory senses and stimulates those natural feel good factor endorphins. You can't lick at the chocolate mask but it smells good enough to eat and will relax you completely.
And finally, eye cream. Treat your peepers to a twice daily smear of quality eye serum or cream to help refine the delicate skin around the eyes. A little goes a very long way and used regularly can make an enormous difference to the appearance of fine lines and dry crepeiness.
Embrace all that Autumn has to offer, the gorgeous russet foliage, nights warming by the fire and a beautiful year-round complexion.
