Autumn skin care: 10 tips from Afrodita
Autumn skin care:
10 tips from Afrodita
As summer fades into autumn, our skin loses radiance, tightness, ‘juiciness’, and energy. Summer sun exposure, along with salt, chlorine and sandy water, lead to dull, damaged skin, and hyperpigmentation. Add the wind and cooler autumn temperatures, and your skin is in desperate need of intensive nourishing and renewing care. Here is some advice to help you reverse the effects of summer days and give your skin vitality, energy, and a healthy glow.
Facial care in autumn
1. Get rid of summer “burden”
Autumn is the perfect time to remove all the impurities and dead skin cells that have accumulated over the summer with a thorough exfoliation. This improves the quality of your skin, makes it supple and nourished, reduces the appearance of impurities, cleanses the pores, and improves the absorption of subsequent care products.
Tip: We recommend choosing the Clean Up Enzyme Peel for your facial care, because compared to mechanical peels it is gentler, non-invasive but highly effective in cleansing impurities that have accumulated in the depths of the pores, and thoroughly removing dead skin cells.
2. Enjoy radiant skin without hyperpigmentation
As well as a beautiful, tanned complexion, spending time in the summer sun can leave unpleasant marks on the skin in the form of hyperpigmentation and an uneven tone. To restore radiance and even out the complexion, reach for care products with vitamin C. It acts as a pigment corrector, evens out the complexion and visibly reduces pigmentation spots – in some cases they can even completely disappear.
Tip: For an effective regeneration, use the Multiactive C10 Vitamin Super Shot with 10% new generation vitamin C (ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate). This lasts much longer, is better absorbed, does not cause irritation, gives excellent results, and restores a beautiful glow to the skin.
3. Goodbye wrinkles, long live youthful, firm, and toned skin
Exposure to strong sunlight is one of the most common causes of premature skin ageing. Autumn is thus the perfect time for regenerating and intensive anti-ageing treatment. It reduces the negative effects of summer sun exposure (wrinkles and pigmentation), boosts collagen synthesis, and provides visibly firmer, more youthful skin.
Tip: For a truly luxurious and intense anti-age facial that delivers immediate results, choose the concentrated Pure Gold Divine Serum. With an extremely high content of rejuvenating ingredients, it provides a rejuvenated appearance to the skin and reduces wrinkles around the forehead, outer eye area, and neck.
4. Restore the 'juiciness' of the skin
Dry air in the colder months can make the skin on your face feeling dry, sensitive, irritated, tired, and lacking energy. Using professional moisturisers will soothe and revitalise your skin, leaving it looking fresher, healthier, and more rested.
Tip: We recommend moisturising your skin with the Multiactive Hyaluronic & B5 Boost Shot, which contains the best moisturisers (Hyaluronic Acid, Provitamin B5, Ultimate Moisture Complex/NMF) to hydrate your skin intensely and deeply.
5. For radiant eyes even in moments of stress and fatigue
After a relaxed and carefree summer comes the time of autumnal commitments that bring additional stress and fatigue. Since the skin around the eyes is many times thinner than the rest of the face, the first signs of fatigue are visible here. So pay special attention to this area for a fresh look without bags under your eyes.
Tip: Use the 3 Peptides Eye Cream to nourish the eye area. In addition to its many excellent anti-ageing ingredients, it also contains nettle, which activates water drainage and accelerates blood circulation to the skin. It also contains Centella asiatica, which further tightens the skin. The combined effect of these two active ingredients visibly reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.
6. Do not let the autumn sun age you
Remember. Even in the autumn harmful UV rays are present and can damage our skin, so protection is necessary all year round. The UVA rays that cause premature skin ageing are also intense in autumn but using an SPF product daily can protect you from photo-ageing.
Tip: For high-quality anti-age protection, we recommend Multiactive Peptide Protective Fluid SPF 30, as it offers extremely high UVA protection (twice the legal requirement).
Body care in autumn
7. Get wonderfully soft and cleansed skin
After the summer, skin all over the body needs gentle cleansing and general renewal. Do not forget this and treat yourself to the perfect skincare ritual for autumn. Use a high-quality exfoliator to nourish, smooth, refine and texture your skin, leaving it magically soft and supple, and stimulate microcirculation with a gentle massage.
Tip: Choose the ART of SPA Sugar Body Scrub, which, with its jojoba oil content, not only thoroughly renews the skin but also protects against moisture loss, softens the skin, and improves its elasticity.
8. Prolong that eye-catching tan
As summer draws to a close, we want to carry our glorious tan as far as possible into autumn. Unfortunately, your tan will slowly fade as the skin renews itself. That is why you need to regularly moisturise your skin with high-quality moisturising products to reduce flaking and slow down the fading of your complexion.
Tip: For a truly long-lasting tan, use the moisturising Summer Affair Tan Extender Lotion, which contains two tan activators to help the skin self-tan.
9. Revitalise body and mind
The better we feel, the better our skin looks. Treat yourself to an indulgent massage and stimulate the production of happy hormones like serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine, even in darker and colder months. Massage also improves circulation, helps tighten the skin, stimulates the elimination of toxins and provides a more even skin tone.
Tip: We recommend opting for the fragrant Grapes Massage Oil to help your skin retain its natural moisture levels in autumn.
Autumn skin care for men
10. Men’s skincare - fast and effective
Whether he loves or hates face creams, if the man in your life stives for healthy, beautiful skin he needs products that protect and hydrate it, and give a perfect, even complexion.
Tip: Every man (or his better half) needs to make sure his skincare routine moisturises and protects his skin in autumn. Choose the FOR MEN 3-Dimensional 24h Cream, as it’s lightweight, absorbs quickly and offers exceptional antioxidants and anti-ageing benefits.
