It felt like summer went by in a flash, didn’t it? And while the first weeks of autumn are always a mixed bag when it comes to Australian weather, there’s no denying that some parts of our huge nation are already experience a dip in temperature.
The moderate temperatures usually make skincare a breeze. You don’t have to worry about sweat and sunburn or uncomfortably dry skin caused by the cold biting wind. This hasn’t stopped us from coming up with our favourite autumn beauty tips!
Tip One: SPF Every Day
Just because the mercury has dropped slightly doesn’t mean you should be skipping sunscreen in your morning routine! Even on a cold day the sun’s rays can damage your skin. This means you must wear SPF all year round. We really like the new Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Skin Perfecting Moisturising Day Cream with SPF15. It’s lightweight, won’t clog pores and is easily absorbed into your skin. And guess what – you’ll all be sampling this in your March bellabox!
Tip Two: Don’t Forget About Your Water
We’re all pretty good about keeping our water intake up in the warmer weather, but for a lot of us it drops off once the heat passes. But keeping your body hydrated will give you an inner glow and help your skin and lips to stay moisturized. Keep a bottle of water on your desk or in your bag to sip throughout the day. Add a squeeze of lemon or lime to keep things interesting.
There’s something about cooler weather than makes red lips seem oh so appropriate. We can hardly blame you for choosing a more natural look in summer, particularly on a hot sweaty day. But now it’s time to pull out your favourite shade of red and wear it with pride.
Tip Four: Moisturise Your Hands
If you’re prone to dry hands then you’ll notice a few cracks and flakes forming as soon as the cold weather hits Let’s avoid dry winter hands by keeping them nice and soft throughout autumn! Staying with the Palmer’s theme, try their Concentrated Hand Cream to fight off dry skin.
