Update your skincare routine

The changing of the seasons can cause havoc with our complexions, but most of us just put up with the sudden dry skin, persistent outbreaks and general lacklustre complexion. Here's our top tips for skin survival during the change of seasons.Get ahead and act now for a happy face...

Hydration boost

During the colder months the humidity decreases and our use of central heating increases – both serve to dry out skin.  Before bed, gently cleanse your skin without stripping it and drying it further with harsh chemicals and then apply a rich night moisturising repair cream. Look for creams full of antioxidants, as nighttime is the best time to repair the skin. As skin can become a little dryer as the temperature cools, and central heating is turned on, after cleansing at night try adding a few drops of a rich nourishing oil to your night cream for an extra boost. The benefit of using an oil is that you can simply add a few drops into the palm of your hand and mix it with your moisturiser as needed. This allows you to custom-blend your moisturiser on days when you are feeling drier and when you’re not feeling dry, you simply don’t use it.  Products we love that will help give you a hydration boost include the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Liz Earle Superskin Moisturiser and Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate.

Tackle outbreaks Breakouts can actually increase during the autumn season. The increase in oil that takes place in the skin during the summer months is still occurring, yet the cooler air is creating layers of dead skin cell buildup. This traps oil and bacteria beneath the surface of the skin, which leads to an increase in breakout activity.  Add a cleansing mask into your skincare routine to keep breakouts at bay. Balance and calm skin while drawing out impurities with a concentrated botanical mask containing green clay and manuka honey. Reach for the Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask to help bring skin into balance. Give lacklustre skin back its glow Post summer skin can be dehydrated and look sallow, and exfoliation is extremely important as it gets rid of the dead damaged cells. This step will prepare the skin to absorb more moisture and nutrition. Exfoliate regularly but be gentle. Exfoliating is also essential in reducing breakouts as it removes the dead skin cells that trap oil. Regular exfoliation will help to lift skin discolouration (such as sun spots and acne scars), remove dull, tired, dry skin and encourage fresher, plumper cells to form. This will give your skin a flawless finish. Use the Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator a few times a week. With moisturising cocoa butter, purifying eucalyptus and fine jojoba beads, this gentle yet effective exfoliator buffs away dead skin cells and impurities to reveal smoother, more radiant-looking skin. You can pick up all of these autumn skincare saviors from our Island Wellness Spa. Pop by and speak to our therapists for expert advice the next time you are at the Country Club.
