Love Thy Skin
With cooler weather comes different skin challenges. Carlie Wacker shares some tips to ensure your skin weathers well.
As the seasons change, so should our skincare routine. Our body’s largest organ needs different things as the weather and environment around us switches up, so let’s have a look at some helpful tips for beautiful skin in autumn.
Exfoliate – Over summer we are using thicker sunscreen and are more exposed to the elements. A good exfoliation will help remove any excess products sitting on your skin blocking pores and slough away any dead skin cells revealing fresher, brighter skin. Cleaner skin also ensures that any serums or moisturisers are easily absorbed for maximum benefits.
Hydrate – As we move into cooler temperatures, we expose our skin to heaters and reverse-cycle air conditioning that suck the moisture out of the air (and therefore our skin). Maintaining hydration is extra important to minimise dehydration.
Lip Service – Don’t forget to look after your lips. Seek out lip exfoliation creams and balms t0 keep your pout plump.
Sunscreen – Although the weather is less extreme it’s still vital to apply sunscreen daily to prevent premature ageing and damage.
Gut Health – Look after your skin from the inside out. Good gut health results in healthier, more hydrated and protected skin. Try adding broths and powders to your daily routine. You can get them from About Faces Noosa.
Sweat It Out – Infrared saunas have so many benefits including assisting with weight control and reducing the appearance of cellulite. It detoxifies heavy metals and chemicals and tightens. Get your sweat on at City Cave Noosa or Revival Wellness Studio.
Regenerate – Angie Lamb at About Faces Noosa suggests that Autumn is a great time to start skin treatments that can reduce the sun damage and pigmentation in our skin. She has a state-of-the-art Visia Skin Analysis machine that uses 3D technology to measure skin pigmentation, wrinkles, texture, pores, vascularity and skin age. Once our skin health has been revealed, she can customise a treatment plan including Cutera Laser sessions to reveal fresher, younger skin. I had this treatment last year and was so thrilled with the results.
Tighten Up – At Revival Wellness Studio, Teena Ingram recommends Emsculpt, Cool Body Fat Freezing and Endermologie for firming, toning and reshaping the body.
Decompress – Revival Wellness Studio also have the Airpod Hydroxy – a low grade hypobaric chamber that takes you to 1.35 bars below sea level causing the body to rush oxygen to your cells. The chamber also has a hydrogen jet to increase uptake of oxygen in the cells by up to 30%. This serves to regenerate cells and address fatigue.
