As the seasons change from summer to autumn, it’s important to adjust your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. There are ingredients that can help protect and nourish your skin during the cooler months. Here are some autumn skincare ingredients to look for:
1. Rosehip Oil (Natural Hyaluronic Acid Alternatives)
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan in our body that provides suppleness, moisture and radiance to the skin. As the air is getting cooler and drier, moisture will be drawn away from the skin, reducing the amount available to replenish the skin’s optimal hydration levels. Rosehip Oil is a powerful alternative to Hyaluronic Acid, that helps to draw moisture to the skin and keep it hydrated. It’s packed with Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamins A & C that are important for skin renewal and cell repair.

2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. This is especially important after high exposure to sun during the summer months. Natural ingredients that contain high levels of Vitamin C are Grapefruit and Sweet Oranges. These ingredients are rich in anti-inflammatory properties which can helps to brighten the skin and treat uneven skin tone.

3. Carrot Seeds (Natural Retinol Alternatives)
Retinol is a form of vitamin A that helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to increase collagen production, which can keep the skin looking firm and youthful. Carrot Seed is one of the powerful natural Retinol alternatives, due to its abundance of Vitamin A and Beta Carotene. It helps to rejuvenate the skin and is excellent to reduce hyper-pigmentation and increase skin tone and the skin’s elasticity.

Shea butter is a rich, nourishing ingredient that helps to deeply moisturise the skin. This ivory-toned butter comes from the nut of the African Shea tree. It contains high levels of fatty acids and vitamins that help to soothe and protect the skin from environmental damage. Furthermore, it helps to improve the elasticity of the skin therefore the ageing process.
