Your Ideal Skincare Routine, According to The Seasons

One of the simplest mistakes that people can make is following the same skincare regime all year round. Why? Just like you change up your wardrobe from season to season, the same practice should apply to your skincare routine too, in order for your skin to perform at its optimum.

That’s why you need to follow these tailored seasonal skin care tips, to bring your skin to the next level ⎼ all year round.

Our summer skincare routine

Wondering how to take care of your skin in summer? Well, there are a few things to consider. We spend a lot of time with our face in the sunshine during the warmer months, so our skin needs a boost of protection and regeneration.

Plus, if you find yourself dealing with dry skin in summer (which is super common) then you need to incorporate the right mix of oils, moisturizers and SPF.

Here’s a summer skin routine you should be sticking to:

Looking for the best face cream for summer? Since your face is going to be consuming a lot of products (sunscreen, serums, SPF), we recommend avoiding an all-over face cream for summer and instead, let the products mentioned above work their magic.

Delicate areas of your face may need a touch more attention, such as your eye area. We recommend a few dabs of Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream around the eyes - especially as it’s proven to minimise wrinkles by over 16%.

And what about the best serum for summer? We’re going to go left of field for this and recommend a Certified Organic Lip Serum. Why? Because your lips can easily be affected by sun damage and need to be nourished throughout the summer months.

Our autumn skincare routine

Throughout autumn your skin is in major recovery mode, and when nights get a little chilly, your skin may begin to react. So, to help combat this, you need to nourish your skin as much as possible.

Here’s your go-to autumn routine, along with the secret recipe on how to regenerate skin cells faster.

Our winter skincare routine

Let’s face it, winter is by far the most challenging month for the look and feel of your skin. With the wind, rain and cold temperatures, you will notice your skin becoming dry, dull and often stressed. So to remedy your dehydrated skin in winter, make your focus hydration.

Here’s how to incorporate hydrating ingredients in skincare:

Our spring skincare routine

Spring is all about regenerating, replenishing and rebuilding after a tough slog through winter. That’s why your skincare routine is about actioning a re-do and figuring out how to brighten dull skin.

Here’s your spring skincare regime:

1. Cleanse. Try double cleansing to ensure additional pollutants are removed from the skin, such as pollen and dirt. Start with the Phyto-active Micellar Rosewater and follow up with the Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser for that extra clean, removing makeup and dirt from the skin.
2. Exfoliate. Focus on exfoliating any dead skin build up from over the winter by using the Phytofuse Renew Caviar Lime Exfoliator three to four times a week. The natural AHA’s work gently to resurface the skin's barrier leaving it soft and smooth. It is also proven to boost, brighten and tone the complexion, so you can wave goodbye to winter skin dullness.
