We’re saying goodbye to Summer and welcoming the ease into the cooler months. We’re not sure about you but we think Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. There’s a change in the air, not just the temperature but we see the leaves changing, the days beginning to shorten & the hot sweaty days seem to become cooler and more bearable. The cool, crisp air may feel wonderful on your skin after the dry heat of summer, but unfortunately, cooler temps mean less moisture in the air, which is not so wonderful for your skin.
But don’t despair! We’ve put together a quick and simple guide on how to treat your biggest skin concerns this Autumn. That way you can enjoy all this beautiful season has to offer, knowing that your skin is hydrated and protected.
While your body may be protected under layers of clothing as the temperatures start to drop, your face is almost always exposed to the elements.
For this reason, you need to make sure it’s well protected to prevent moisture loss that can lead to a decline in collagen production, and therefore increase your risk of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
Lets talk skin routine. We all know we should have one but many ask the question, what do I actually need for more skin? Hands up if you’ve got a cupboard or drawer full of products that you’ve compiled over the year. It’s time to do a Marie Condo (if you haven’t heard of this current internet sensation let us show you here) and THROW IT AWAY. Most products, even if you have only used them once have an expiry date. You really don’t need to be holding onto products.
Our Alexami Hydrabotanique Range is a simple yet broad concept we have created to replace all the products in your skincare routine. Alexami 5 step skin care routine is designed for any skin type and any age! It is a unique, simple and multi-functional collection enriched with active botanicals, omegas, antioxidants, peptides and minerals. And as we transition from the warmer climate to cooler temperatures, lets talk to moisturiser.
While it’s always important to moisturize your skin, Autumn is the time of year to really amp up the hydration levels in preparation for winter.
This season, stay away from chemically-laden products and opt instead for a natural alternative such as our deeply Hydrating 2 in 1 Hydrating Primer. Alexami’s 2 in 1 primer combines the benefits of a moisturiser and foundation primer in one. Enriched with active botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins E, White Tea, Chamomile and Elderberry Extracts this 2 in 1 primer protects, hydrates, soothes and smoothes your skin, creating the perfect base for flawless foundation application.
This is a daily go to, whether you are allowing your skin to breath and need a moisturising mask for the day or a base for your mineral, you’ll find that you won’t need to apply too much makeup as the primer is the perfect base that’ll hold your foundation in place all day long.
This excellent moisturizer will naturally quench your skin’s thirst, stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, provide natural UV protection of 6, and help to prevent the signs of aging. Jojoba oil softens the skin, green tea provides potent antioxidant protection and our unique ocean mineral complex provides the skin with essential minerals to deeply cleanse and detoxify.
