A Glow Getters Guide to Evening Skincare

It has got to that point in the year, where the sun has started to disappear yet again. We are now met with more overcast days and intermittent showers clouding our days. 

During these colder months, it can be hard to know what to do with your skincare routine. If you’ve worked hard on your summer glow, or even a tan, you could find yourself not wanting to give it up.

In this article, we will be talking about our top tips for maintaining that healthy and glowing skin you have kept through summer and how you can bring it with you into Autumn. 

Our top tips on how to make your tan last longer

Don’t Let Your Skin Dry Out

Our first top tip for a long lasting tan is to not let your skin dry out. Of course, when talking about dry skin there are longer implications, other than losing your summer glow. 

Dry skin can not only be uncomfortable but it also can physically thinner and crease more as your face moves around in daily activities.

Over time, these creases will become wrinkles or uneven skin.  We recommend always keeping your face and skin well-moisturized, no matter the weather or season. This will help you prevent all premature ageing and give you that overall radiant glow. 



Stay Hydrated

The number one step on how to keep your tan, is to maintain your moisturizing routine. As soon as you begin to get dry, your summer tan will fade. 

On our Autumn list of skincare essentials, we have included products like our Obagi Hydration Kit, which will aid in keeping your skin hydrated throughout the Autumn season. Our skin experts recommend moisturising twice a day, massaging the face and neck in the morning as part of your morning skin care routine and the same in the evening.

Not only will the Obagi Hydration Kit from the Obagi Medical® range aids in reducing any fine lines or wrinkles you may have, but this high-quality facial moisturizer will leave your face feeling healthy and hydrated.

Spending extra time moisturizing your skin from head to toe will help you with that heavenly glow that you worked on throughout summer. Moisturizing keeps your skin cells hydrated, plump and soft allowing the tone of your skin to stay more balanced.

To exfoliate or not to exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin may seem completely counterproductive when you think about wanting to upkeep your summer glow and tan, however it’s still a very necessary step to keep in your skincare routine - even during the colder months. 

Dr. Barbara Sturm Facial Scrub removes any of your dry, flaky skin whilst also encouraging cell renewal with gently exfoliating ingredients to give skin a radiant boost. This scrub is packed with active ingredients that work to promote cell renewal and contains silk extracts which deeply moisturise skin, 

Our skin experts suggest only exfoliating once or twice a week to help maintain your tan and keep glowing throughout Autumn.  

Apply Facial Oils

With moisturizing being a staple in your skincare routine, let’s now talk about face oils. 

What is the difference between a face oil and moisturiser? 

Moisturizers are typically part water and part oil, which allows for your skin to feel fresh and hydrated. Where face oils are slightly heavier. A good-quality moisturizer will help your skin to retain moisture, adding a much needed layer of hydration. Whereas an oil will aid in locking that layer in. 

A perfect example of a face oil we always recommend is our Lumity Nutrients Facial Oil. This oil works on a deeper level to help all skin types bloom with health and radiance.

If you have an oilier skin type, you may be thinking that a facial oil is not the correct solution for you, however, our oils are easily absorbed into the skin and can even regulate oily skin in the correct combination and skincare routine, playing a forever important role of helping you achieve healthy and glowing skin.

Effortlessly input a facial oil into your daily routine by simply adding half a dropper after your cleansing step, in both the morning and evening. If you have drier, or ‘thirstier’ skin, you may find yourself wanting to apply it more often. Of course, we recommend listening to your skin’s demands and adding more to your routine if you feel you need it.
