The crisp sounds of fall autumn leaves, the cooler and darker evenings and the whispers of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are on the horizon. We love the changing of seasons at TEMPLESPA, the newness of another season, more things to plan in the diary and launching our Christmas collection all adds to the excitement.
In this blog we’ll be sharing our top fall autumn beauty skincare routines, products and tips that you may not have thought of. We’re faced with a changing of climates that can affect the appearance of our skin easily so an update, swap or addition to our skincare routines is a must.
How many of you currently exfoliate your skin regularly? We’re not talking just about scrubs which are traditional methods of exfoliating your skin. Try a chemical exfoliator (and no it’s not as scary as it sounds!) like our GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner, helping to gently unlock dead skin cells from the skin for brighter complexions. Alternatively, BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE Gentle Exfoliator is a wonderful daily exfoliating option for the morning, helping to invigorate the skin for the day ahead without being too overly abrasive!
Don’t Forget Your Hands
We often talk about skincare routines and what steps to include, but our hands can be easily overlooked and especially in the fall and colder months. We’ve taken to placing a PALM BALM Luxury Skincare For The Hands on our desks, in our bags and next to the sink to remind us to rehydrated dry, parched hands throughout the day.
Alternatively, to tick off a treat for both the neck and hands, apply our EXALT Firming Neck Gel using the ‘kitten strokes’ method to give hands a deep nourishing treat. Catch up with our Do I Need A Neck Gel? blog post for everything you need to know about our clever neck gel. But don’t forget any leftover cleanser, serum and moisturizer you have from your skincare routine can be used for your hands too!
Weekly Mask Meetings
Book yourself a self-care time slot every week, whether it’s on a Friday night, Sunday morning or whenever you can slot in 30 minutes between tasks. Masks are perfect fall autumn skin care treats to try because, depending on what mask you choose, they can help tackle any skin concerns you have.
Take dry skin for example, a great exfoliating mask like THE POWER BREAKFAST Nutritious Scrub & Mask In One can easily help the skin shed dead skin cells for a brighten complexion and followed with QUENCH Rejuvenating Mask to restore hydration and plump the skin. The key is picking a mask based on what your skin needs are!
Similar to your weekly mask meetings, a relaxation ritual can seriously help with your skin and overall wellbeing. Aromatherapy and skin care are what we’re known for at TEMPLESPA and we love to switch off and unwind with our tried-and-tested relaxation ritual. First a warm bath will be drawn with a drizzle of DRIFT AWAY Bathing & Massage Oil for the calming aromas and hydrating ingredients – and if we haven’t managed the bath, post-shower this oil is brilliant for locking-in hydration fast. A spritz of our favourite QUIETUDE Chill Out & Sleep Well Mist full of essential oils like lavender, patchouli and chamomile sets the scene for a relaxing evening ahead. Finish with a beautiful massage of REPOSE Relaxing Night Cream across our face, cupping our hands to breathe in the soothing aromas finishes our ritual off.
