seasonal skincare

Despite the season, the most important thing that is going to affect skin changes is genetics, hormones and lifestyle factors. You need to listen to your skin and also take into consideration what other factors could be triggering any skin changes. Below are a number of seasonal skincare swaps to help your skin make the transition from autumn to winter:

Grainy Exfoliators SWAP Acid based exfoliators

Swap your grain based exfoliator for an acid based one as the grains could be giving your skin inflammation and aggravating it. Your skin is likely to become drier and more sensitive during the winter, so a grainy exfoliator is likely to irritate the skin. The Lift Off Exfoliating Cleanser gently dissolves dead skin cells as opposed to buffing them off. It’s free of parabens and won’t irritate the skin.

Creams SWAP oils

Swap lighter creams for ones which have a thicker consistency or try to incorporate the use of oils and serums into your skincare regime. In the winter your skin will produce less natural oils and fatty acids, so keep these topped up with the space anti age cream which contains lots of natural oils such as: caprylic/capric triglyceride, hydrogenated castor oil hydrogenated palm oil, olea europaea fruit oil,  and oryza sativa bran oil, to keep the skin hydrated and retain hydration. If this isn’t enough, top up your hydration levels with the space aqua booster.

SPF Sunscreen SWAP SPF Moisturiser

Sun protection should be worn all year round, but instead of wearing Sunscreen as you might in the summer, opt for a moisturiser, primer, or foundation that has SPF protection or a mineral UV filter included within it. That way, you won’t forget to apply it. It should protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. Keeping your skin protected from sun damage will help to prevent ageing of the skin in the future.
