Keep reading for the ultimate Autumn/Winter skincare routine.
It doesn’t matter what season it is, cleansing your skin should be the foundation of your skincare routine. However, during the cooler months try to steer clear of drying cleanser formulations and opt for something that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
We recommend Dragon’s Blood 3 In 1 Treatment Cleanser. This hydrating cleanser is packed with 7 natural AHA fruit extracts, Medowfoam Seed Oil & Honey, plus Dragon’s Blood to soothe sensitive and stressed skin. Starting as an exfoliating serum, this cleanser transforms into a beautifully-light, silky foam when blended with water to cleanse your skin without stripping away its natural moisture.
Use in the morning and at night to keep your skin looking radiant all winter long.
Masks are a part of skincare routines most tend to overlook but they can play a major role in the overall appearance of your skin.
When the cold air hits try incorporating a hydrating mask into your routine at least once a week to help boost your skins moisture and promote a healthy glow.
For your winter skincare routine, we recommend the Oxygen-C Vitamin C Soothing Cream Clay Mask. This can help to exfoliate, calm and hydrate all at the same time.
The superfine fabric mask is designed to comfortably cover and fill the skin’s uneven surface, so that the rich, natural clay cream - infused with Vitamin C, Panthenol and Calamine (known for its soothing and refreshing effect) - can get to work to quickly refresh and ensure skin stays revitalised, protected, hydrated and nourished.
For the whole month of March we are giving away x6 of these beauties with every purchase!
Serums are an essential skin care step to keep you hydrated and bright all year round! Serums penetrate deep into the skins surface and are arguably the most potent of skincare available.
Our top recommendation is the Dragon's Blood Retinol Sleep Serum. This highly concentrated, low-irritation complex combines Granactive Retinoid with added Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid to rejuvenate, retexture and hydrate skin while you sleep.
Of course the staple of every skincare routine during the cold, dry, winter months should be moisturiser.
For the daytime we recommend Dragon’s Blood Radiance Daily Moisturiser. This antioxidant-packed moisturiser protects your skin from environmental stressors and sun damage, while also delivering a steady dose of deep moisturisation throughout the day.
For the evening try Dragon’s Blood Ultra Plumping Night Cream, This multi-tasking skin restoring cream targets all the visible signs of ageing while you sleep. Pure retinol microcapsules refine texture, reduce lines, discolouration, age spots and maintain firmness. Hyaluronic acid plumps and redensifies skin, filling the look of wrinkles and delivering unparalleled levels of intense hydration. Pomegranate enzymes exfoliate to brighten for noticeable radiance. Dragon’s blood also works to soothe tired looking skin, so you wake up looking fresher.
The combination of these two products with their protective and restorative nature will have your skin looking and feeling soft and hydrated despite the temperature drop.
If you aren’t already using a facial oil, it’s time to start now. Especially during the winter months it’s important you’re adding an oil into your skincare routine as to give your skin an extra layer of protection & hydration.
We recommend a hydrating oil like Nature's SUPEROIL. The 100% natural formulation contains contains the richest sources of omega 3-6-9 and super antioxidants to deeply hydrate, protect against dryness, nourish and calm the skin; reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin blemishes, noticeabley improve elasticity, firmness and smoothness of skin.
A little goes a long way! Just 2-3 drops massaged into cleansed skin in the morning & another 2-3 drops mixed into your night cream in the evening will do the trick!
