ready to partyWho wants to party?

It won’t be long before the party season is upon us, so the earlier you get started to get your skin ready for those amazing outfits, the better.

Autumn is the time of the year you are most likely to suffer from seasonal skin sensitivities, so you should adapt your skincare products accordingly. The products you used in the hot summer months may be less effective now…

…a dull complexion, flaky skin, red patches and itchiness are all signs of sensitivity – so it’s not going to be a quick fix – but the earlier you get prepared the better.

When the climate gets cooler, your skin will need extra hydration to cope with the elements, so you will need a richer cleanser and moisturiser. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin cells hydrated – this might mean drinking a few more glasses each day.

Lip-balm-15ml-mellow-skincareDon’t forget to use a lip balm every day, but make sure it’s nourishing rather than petroleum-based if you want to prevent chapped lips.

You can get our lovely lip balm here – it’s available in a tin or a tube!

Let’s get prepared…

There’s always so much expense leading up to the party season, so you’ll be pleased to know how easy it is to give yourself a pampering facial without the Spa expenses!

The ideal time is before you go to bed so that you fall asleep straight away to get maximum effect.

mellow-skincare-exfoliating-creamAfter scraping back your hair, apply a small amount of exfoliating scrub, and with very clean hands and with small circular movements massage into your face and neck.

Make sure you avoid your eyes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water.

Fill a large bowl full of boiling water. Lean over the water and drape a towel over your head to steam clean your pores. A few minutes will be long enough and then you can rinse with cool water to close the pores. Your skin will be starting to feel amazing, but you can now apply a face mask suitable for your skin type, avoiding your mouth and lips. This will need to be left on for about 15 minutes so why not make the most of the time by applying cooling cucumber slices to your eyes while you relax and wait. Rinse off with warm water.

All you need to do now is massage your face and neck with moisturiser suitable for your skin type.

This will really nourish your skin so all you have to do now is sleep well.
