One of the simplest mistakes that people can make is following the same skincare regime all year round. Why? Just like you change up your wardrobe from season to season, the same practice should apply to your skincare routine too, in order for your skin to perform at its optimum.
That’s why you need to follow these tailored seasonal skin care tips, to bring your skin to the next level ⎼ all year round.
Our summer skincare routine
Wondering how to take care of your skin in summer? Well, there are a few things to consider. We spend a lot of time with our face in the sunshine during the warmer months, so our skin needs a boost of protection and regeneration.
Plus, if you find yourself dealing with dry skin in summer (which is super common) then you need to incorporate the right mix of oils, moisturizers and SPF.
Here’s a summer skin routine you should be sticking to:
Try our Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser
that is packed full of goodness. It cleans the skin, and the unique silicone tip gentle boosts circulation to aid in cell regeneration, leaving the skin bright and youthful.
2. Sunscreen. Lather up your face, neck and body with your favourite sunscreen and aim for a SPF50 coverage if possible.
3. SPF Makeup.
Top up your sun protection while blotting out oily sweat with a light covering of Loose Mineral Foundation in SPF25
. It will sit properly on top of your sunscreen layer and give you a little SPF boost.
Looking for the best face cream for summer? Since your face is going to be consuming a lot of products (sunscreen, serums, SPF), we recommend avoiding an all-over face cream for summer and instead, let the products mentioned above work their magic.
Delicate areas of your face may need a touch more attention, such as your eye area. We recommend a few dabs of Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream around the eyes - especially as it’s proven to minimise wrinkles by over 16%.
And what about the best serum for summer? We’re going to go left of field for this and recommend a Certified Organic Lip Serum. Why? Because your lips can easily be affected by sun damage and need to be nourished throughout the summer months.
Our autumn skincare routine
Throughout autumn your skin is in major recovery mode, and when nights get a little chilly, your skin may begin to react. So, to help combat this, you need to nourish your skin as much as possible.
Here’s your go-to autumn routine, along with the secret recipe on how to regenerate skin cells faster.
Using a serum can rewind ageing from the summer months spent in the sun. Try using the Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Serum
. With Vitamin A for skin, as well as C and D, it helps protect against skin damage inflicted by harmful UV rays by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and assisting in the prevention of scarring.
2. Face Oil.
Opt for a face oil packed with fatty acids and antioxidants to support a radiant and clear complexion. Our recommendation is definitely the Phyto-active Botanical Face Oil
. It’s lightweight so it will not make skin oily. The weather isn’t quite cold enough for the skin to need an extra hydration boost, but by adding in a lightweight oil will assist in preparing the skin for the coming months.
Our winter skincare routine
Let’s face it, winter is by far the most challenging month for the look and feel of your skin. With the wind, rain and cold temperatures, you will notice your skin becoming dry, dull and often stressed. So to remedy your dehydrated skin in winter, make your focus hydration.
Here’s how to incorporate hydrating ingredients in skincare:
1. Face Oil.
The best serum for winter is actually just a good hydrating face oil. Phyto-active Rosehip Oil Blend
is a thicker, more dense oil, so if you have very dry patches that are sensitive, then this is your go-to product. It treats dry skin, soothes sensitive skin, heals damaged skin and leaves your skin supple and bouncy. You can also apply this to your decolletage.
2. Eye Cream.
The best eye cream for winter is hands down the Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream
. Rich and nourishing, it will help the delicate skin around your eyes survive the cold winter months.
3. Night Cream.
Use a nourishing night cream to increase moisture in the skin overnight. Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Night Cream
is deeply nourishing so a must-have in your skin care weaponry. It is proven to boost hydration by 27.4% in just 7 days.
Our spring skincare routine
Spring is all about regenerating, replenishing and rebuilding after a tough slog through winter. That’s why your skincare routine is about actioning a re-do and figuring out how to brighten dull skin.
Here’s your spring skincare regime:
Focus on exfoliating any dead skin build up from over the winter by using the Phytofuse Renew Caviar Lime Exfoliator
three to four times a week. The natural AHA’s work gently to resurface the skin's barrier leaving it soft and smooth. It is also proven to boost, brighten and tone the complexion, so you can wave goodbye to winter skin dullness.
