As the seasons change, so too do your skin’s needs. Autumn is a time of changing weather, more rain, the reintroduction of central heating… The list goes on. So as we shift into a new season, it might be time to give your autumn skincare regime some thought. Just as you do with your wardrobe in autumn, layering comes into play. The addition of a mask for extra hydration? And extra anti-ageing serum before bed? An anti-pollution product if you’re headed back to work in the city? Our editors have picked their hero autumn skincare products from the range at Pure Skin Boutique, where, as always, results are key.
If the changing season is causing sensitive, irritated, dry skin, help to prevent inflammation with this gentle cleanser. It will remove dirt and make-up with an antibacterial and antimicrobial action, containing almond milk for a silky soft skin feeling.
A real autumn skincare treat, this gel mask infuses your complexion with moisture, reducing signs of tiredness and leaving you looking fresh and radiant. It contains extracts of plant stem cells and hyaluronic acid to strengthen and protect the DNA and cell function and counteract environmental pollution. It also has antioxidant and detoxifying properties so that fine lines and wrinkles are minimised and skin is regenerated for a younger, more radiant complexion.
Products with anti-inflammatory benefits are key for the changing seasons. The base cocktail of the products in the bionic range combines the highest levels of antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. This product includes concentrated active ingredients from Echinacea, to stimulate collagen production for a smoother, plumper and youthful appearance, and Summer Lilac to provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits to leave skin feeling calm, soft and supple with a more even tone.
One addition to your autumn skincare routine may be a high quality exfoliator. SWISSCODE Pure MPC stimulates natural cell activity and accelerates the skin’s exfoliation process. It remodels the structure making it firmer, brighter and softer whilst visibly reducing lines, scarring and wrinkles. The MPC concentrate is obtained from milk, which contains natural cytokines, which are important stimulators for renewing the connective tissue.
The perfect addition to your new season skincare routine, this is a lightweight, refreshing booster that nourishes and preserves the skin’s youth and radiance. It helps to protect the skin from external ageing thanks to its ability to absorb UV light and prevent environmental damage. Red seaweed extract has an inhibitory effect on melanin production, and the potent extracts of algae and vitamins enhance skin clarity and overall skin health.
This mild enzyme peeling gel uses papaya enzymes and has anti-microbial/anti-viral properties. It contains enzymatic active ingredients to non-abrasively remove dead skin cells and sebum.
