Autumn is just around the corner and being in Melbourne, you know that one day you’ll be wearing summer dresses, the next you’ll be throwing on a scarf and watching the steam rise from your coffee.
But what about your skin?
Do you notice that your skin feels dryer and less hydrated or that there are some dry patches appearing on your cheeks, chin and eyelids? This is all part of seasonal change and a signal that it’s time to change your skin routine to match the weather.
Here are 5 easy tips that can help your skin bloom in the cooler months:
1: Don’t second guess your Skincare.
Visit a clinic like Collins Cosmetic Clinic to get professional advice on products which will suit your skin’s particular needs. Everyone’s skin responds differently to seasonal change and you want to make sure you spend your money on the right products….for you.
2: Keep drinking the H2O!
We know how hard it is to remember to keep hydrated in the cooler months, but it’s worth it for your skin’s sake. Keep a bottle of water on your desk at work and make sure it’s finished by the end of each day. We often add a squeeze of lemon to our water. Not only does it improve the flavour, the cleansing properties of lemon will add to the benefits! Your skin (and energy levels) will thank you for it.
3: Mix up your makeup.
Your skin hydration levels change with the seasons, as does your skin tone. Embrace the change and find a foundation which feels good on your skin and matches your skin needs. We love Glominerals foundation for a luminous look, or Lycogel, which provides breathable camouflage for overly red cheeks.
4: Treat yourself!
Your skin loves nothing more than a good treatment to ease into a new season. Our Picotoning special is perfect for repairing any sun damage that may have occurred or fine lines that have appeared over summer. We provide a full skin analysis, 4 treatments and a microdermabrasion treatment….skin bliss! If you’re not sure about what your skin needs, speak to one of our dermal clinicians for skin treatment advice.
- Indulge your inner foodie.
Some of your skin’s favourite foods come into season in autumn. Beetroot, pumpkin and lemons are our picks of the bunch. These three foods are amazing for the skin and perfect for the kind of meals your body will be craving. Beetroot, feta and walnut salad anyone?
As with anything, choosing the right skin treatment, products and advice will make a big difference to how you look and feel. At Collins Cosmetic Clinic Melbourne, you can be assured that all our staff are highly qualified professionals who are here to listen to your specific needs and provide advice on what’s best for you and your skin.
