Could there be anything worse for your skin than blisteringly cold temps and central heating on max? This troublesome double whammy can fluster and disrupt even the healthiest of complexions leading to dryness, irritation and generally stressed out skin. The transition from summer to autumn is probably the most disruptive seasonal change for your skin. With plane travel causing dryness and sensitivity and increased sun exposure resulting in a weakened skin barrier over the summer months, we often enter autumn on the back foot. As mentioned above, autumn brings its own challenges when it comes to looking after your skin so we wanted to share some top tips for dealing with stressed out skin and our favourite ingredient that rescues and replenishes.
If you’re anything like us, what we put ON our body is just as important as what we put INSIDE our body so, when it comes to skincare, we always gravitate towards brands celebrating natural ingredients. One of our all-time favourite skincare brands has to be Jurlique and they are living proof that harnessing the power of mother nature can provide incredibly effective results-driven skincare. Having produced some of the beauty industry’s top cult products (their best-selling Rosewater Balancing Mist is loved by many), they are always innovating new products and formulas to provide as many people as possible with happy, healthy skin. This winter sees the launch of their Moisture Plus Rare Rose collection, a range that utilises one of our favourite skincare ingredients, Rose, to nourish post-summer skin and provide protection as we enter the colder months of the year. Just the words “moisture” and “rose” alone makes our ears perk up! Rose is an incredible ingredient for your skin and couldn’t be more appropriate for this time of year when your complexion needs a little TLC. It’s ideal for sensitive, stressed out skin due to it’s soothing, calming effect and this range has it in spades. Below we’ve highlighted the four products in the range and how you can utilise them to replenish winter skin.
