Autumn Skincare Essentials

As the leaves change and the air becomes crisper, it’s time to adjust our skincare routines to accomodate the shifting seasons.

Autumn brings cooler temperatures, lower humidity levels, and other environmental factors that can impact our skin. For those with dry skin, autumn can exacerbate feelings of tightness and flakiness. For those with oily or combination skin, autumn doesn’t necessarily mean you can skip moisturising and for those with normal skin, well you are lucky but still need to maintain your skin’s balance.

To ensure your skin stay healthy and radiant during the autumn transition we have curated the best tips and practices tailored to different skin types. Let’s all opt-in to glowing skin!

Best practices for healthy, Glowing skin during Autumn

1. Cleansing

Dry Skin: Opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser enriched with clean and natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and botanical oils such as avocado oil. These ingredients help to retain moisture and nourish the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

Oily/Combination Skin: Opt for a gel-based cleanser formulated with natural ingredients like salicylic acid derived from willow bark extract or tea tree oil known for its antibacterial properties. These ingredients effectively remove excess oil and impurities while maintaining the skin’s natural balance.

Normal Skin: Look for a mild, pH-balanced cleanser contains clean and natural ingredients such as coconut derived surfactant or plant based extracts like chamomile or green tea. These gentle yet effective ingredients cleanse the skin thoroughly without causing irritation or stripping away essential moisture.

2. Exfoliation

Dry Skin: Incorporate a gentle exfoliant 1-2 times a week, with moisturising ingredients like lactic acid or fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin cells and promote cell turnover without over-drying.

Oily/Combination Skin: Consider using a chemical exfoliant containing ingredients like glycolic acid or beta hydroxy acid (BHA) twice a week to unclog pores and control excess oil.

Normal Skin: Use a mild exfoliant 1-2 times a week to maintain skin clarity and smooth texture.

3. Moisturising

Dry Skin: Invest in a rich, nourishing moisturiser with ingredients such as shea butter, ceramides, aloe vera, chamomile or oils like avocado to deeply hydrate and replenish dry skin.

Oily/Combination Skin: Opt for a lightweight formula that provides hydration without clogging pores. Look for hyaluronic acid, pineapple, apricot kernel oil or zinc based moisturises. 

Normal Skin: Choose a moisturiser that strikes a balance between hydration and lightweight texture. Ingredients like peptides and probiotics can help maintain skin barrier function.

4. Sun Protection

Regardless of skin type, don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily, even during the autumn months. UV rays can still penetrate through clouds and cause skin damage. Choose a zinc based broad-spectrum SPF30 or SPF50 that doesn’t feel greasy and won’t clog pores and reapply every 2 hours if exposed to sunlight. We love Found my Skin Mineral tinted SPF50 all year round!

5. Environmental Factors 

– During autumn, cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels can lead to dry, dehydrated skin. Consider using a humidifier indoors to add moisture to the air, drink plenty of water and add a beauty mask once a week to your skincare regimen. We love Vanilla & Honey for normal to dry skin types and Plum Power for oily/combination skin types by Skin Juice.

– Windy weather can lead to dryness and irritation. Protect your skin by applying balms to exposed areas and leave on treatments. We love the multi-award winning Green Juice balm by Skin Juice and the skin boosters packed with potent vitamins by Hydromerse.

6. Facial Treatment Plan

As the seasons change, so do the needs of your skin and a professional advice can help address these specific concerns effectively. Consulting with your beauty therapist about creating a facial treatment plan for the autumn season ensures a personalised approach to skincare, expert advice, targeted treatments, access to professional products and long term results. Ny investing in your skin you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion all year round.


By tailoring your skincare routine to your specific skin type and considering environmental factors, you can maintain a healthy, glowing complexion throughout the autumn season. Remember to listen to your skin’s needs and adjust your routine as necessary to achieve optimal results. Here’s to a season of nourished skin!

The Gua Sha Glow

Step into the world of timeless beauty rituals with Gua Sha, an ancient technique that has transcended centuries to become a coveted skincare ritual. 

Originating from traditional Chinese medicine, Gua Sha has evolved into a modern skincare sensation, celebrated for its profound benefits for the skin.

In this blog post, I will delve into the history of Gua Sha, uncover the fascinating multifaceted benefits and understand the allure that makes Gua Sha a popular and unique treatment in the realm of beauty. From its origins in “scraping away fever” to its current status as a revered beauty secret, Gua Sha beckons us to embrace not only the transformative effects on our skin but also the profound connection it fosters between tradition and contemporary well-being.

Let’s unravel the layers of this timeless practice!

History of Gua Sha

Gua Sha, originating from the words “Gua” (to scrape) and “Sha” (sand) translating  to “scraping away fever” in Chinese, dates back over 2000 years. Initially utilised to alleviate various ailments, promote healing and restore balance to the body’s vital energies. 

This ancient practice traces back its origins to the Han Dynasty, where practitioners used simple tools, often crafted from stones or animal bones to gently scrape the skin’s surface to stimulate blood circulation, alleviate pain and release stagnant energy, fostering a harmonious flow of vital energy throughout the body known as Qi. 

As centuries unfolded, Gua Sha evolved beyond its medicinal roots and found its place in the realm of beauty and aesthetics. Traditional Chinese beliefs in the interconnectedness of the body, mind and spirit infused Gua Sha with a holistic approach, recognising that external radiance is a reflection of internal harmony. 

Throughout the Tang Dynasty and subsequent dynasties, Gua Sha became increasingly associated with beauty rituals, as it was believed to enhance the skin’s vitality, promote a youthful complexion and even ward off the signs of ageing. Over time the tools transitioned to more refined materials such as jade and rose quartz crystals, symbolising not just functionality but also a connection to the Earth’s energies.

Fast forward to the present day, Gua Sha has experienced a resurgence, captivating beauty enthusiasts and skincare experts worldwide. Its allure lies not only in the historical significance but also in the harmonious marriage of ancient wisdom with contemporary self-care practices. The smooth, rhythmic motions of Gua Sha tools on the skin are now embraced for their ability to reduce inflammation, promote lymphatic drainage, naturally lift the skin and enhance the absorption of skincare products.

Stress Reduction:
  • The rhythmic, mindful strokes promote relaxation and reduce facial tension
  • Acts as a self-care ritual, fostering overall well-being
Holistic Approach:
  • Blends ancient Chinese medicine principles with modern skincare practices
  • Connects the body, mind and spirit in a harmonious beauty ritual
Accesible & non-Invasive:

  • Skip the Makeup: Give your skin some breathing space and avoid heavy makeup or self tanning products for a day or two letting your skin revel in its newfound radiance.
  • Sweat Control: After micro needling it’s not time to run a marathon, take a break for couple days from excessive exercise. Use that time for a short stroll or activities for inner peace.
  • Patience is a Virtue: Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is perfect skin. Be patient, it may take a few weeks to see the full results of your micro needling adventure.
Tips to Enhance Flawless Skin:
