    Post-Summer Skin Essentials

    Post-Summer Skin Essentials

     

    It is time to say a sad goodbye to summer...

    ...and begin to brace ourselves for the cold winter months, but that doesn't mean you have to give up your fresh, sun-kissed, glowing complexion just yet. We are here with a variety of skin tips you can use you hold onto your healthy summer skin!

    Firstly, be careful of winter-time skin risks: harsh cold winds, drying indoor heat, sun deprivation, heavier makeup and oil based skincare. These elements stress the skin, contribute to product buildup and an all over dull complexion…

    Secondly, start the season fresh by cleaning that makeup bag, or treating yourself to a new one. Followed by wiping down the remaining products with baby wipes.

    Lastly, those brushes need a thorough wash so no nasties are transferred from brush, to product and onto your skin!

    Try our Instant Brush Cleaner , it will deep-clean and completely dry your brushes in seconds!

    Or if for an at-home remedy, a great technique is to massage raw coconut oil into the bristles before rinsing in warm water with a bit of baby shampoo (far more gentle than normal soap)!
