Now autumn has officially arrived, we’ve been looking for the perfect way to repair and rejuvenate our skin ready for the new season.
Autumn brings cosy jumpers, rust coloured leaves and pumpkin spice everything, as well as dryer skin and the paler complexions that the cooler weather brings with it. Not only that, but the summer can do damage to your skin, so we searched high and low for the perfect beauty and skincare pieces that repaired our summer skin, and prepped for the chilly winter.
As the weather cools, it becomes increasingly important to hydrate the skin. Whilst we’ve been using light moisturisers for the summer, we’ve been searching for thicker, more moisturising products (not just moisturisers!) for the cooler months. If you’ve overdone it over summer, treat your skin to products that will exfoliate and cleanse the skin to keep it looking fresh and clean.
Proto-col’s Intense Protection Day Moisturiser is crafted from plant-derived collagen, coral seaweed, royal jelly and hyaluronic acid for a moisturiser that not only hydrates and softens the skin, but also soothes and heals post-summer skin whilst firming and plumping the skin. Even though summer has passed, we can still get caught in the sun’s albeit lighter rays, so the SPF50+ is the perfect addition.
If you’re looking for a new cleanser to reduce dirt and unclog your pores, make sure you choose one with added hydration, like Proto-col’s Collagen Cleansing Milk. With calming and nourishing agents, this clever must-have also leaves your skin feeling moisturised, clean and fresh! Additional premium ingredients like chamomile and neroli oil relax and calm the skin.
Proto-col’s Microdermabrasion gently lifts away dead skin cells with their blend of crushed diamond and mother of pearl powders. With jojoba oil and beeswax this cream will uncover renewed, fresh skin, and natural AHAs encourage firmer cells. We love how many advantages this little tube has!
As the weather turns cooler, our lips certainly get the brunt of dryness! To keep our lips soft and supple, we just love Proto-col’s Miracle Balm. In a handy little travel pot complete with a mirror for application, this miracle balm features hyaluronic acid, beeswax and jojba oil for the ultimate moisturisation, as well as orange oil, bergamot oil and coral seaweed that all act as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent and promote cell renewal.
To complete your autumn-ready beauty kit, don’t forget your hand cream! Proto-col’s version features royal jelly and shea butter for soft moisturisation, as well as collagen to hydrate, rejuvenate and nourish the skin. Whilst promoting cell renewal, our skins are staying beautifully moisturised with a fresh smell!
