Are your skincare efforts going down the drain?
Check out these skincare tips to have radiant skin in Autumn.
We all dream of having supermodel like glowing skin for which we buy expensive skincare products. Initially, we feel happy, but later on, we get disappointed as these products show no sign of real improvement to our skin. We become further disheartened upon switching to yet another brand and getting a similar result.
Great skin comes down to the quality of the ingredients in the skincare itself, not how much money a company spends on advertising and promotion. Natural is always better, and natural skincare products generally lead to more radiant-looking skin and more excellent health over a lifetime.
The natural skincare industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in beauty. There are plenty of reasons to use natural skincare products instead of commercial products, which are made to survive long hail transportation, have a long shelf life, and are generally filled with potentially harmful synthetic chemicals.
According to Web MD, our skin is made up of water, protein, lipids, and minerals. The balance of all these components determines the health of our skin. This balance gets disrupted due to many factors like bad diet, stress, extreme weather conditions, pollution, and chemical-based skincare products. But to a great extent, we can revive our skin by using natural skincare products correctly. The rest of the balance can be achieved by having a healthy diet and sound sleep.
Another important aspect to achieving beautiful skin is to have the proper knowledge of how to use your natural skincare products correctly. It starts by understanding our skin type, structure, cycle, and how it gets affected by the weather.
Skincare tips to have radiant skin leading into autumn
Our skin goes through many changes from summer to autumn. Extensive exposure to the harsh sun in summer leaves the upper layer of our skin tanned, dry and lifeless due to moisture and oil loss. Autumn is a great time to clean up this blemished, wrinkled, and tanned skin. Autumn’s air, which is drier and less moist than summer, dehydrates our skin, making it flaky and scaly.
Therefore, it is important to exfoliate, moisturise, and use a more comprehensive natural moisturiser like our Rejuvenating Face Superfood, a nutrient-rich cream for normal to dry skin. Our skin also prospers from extra vitamins, hence achieve an extra layer of skin nutrition by first applying our Refreshing Citrus Lotion, which further boosts the skin’s radiance.
During autumn, one of the most common mistakes is applying a moisturiser straight to summer's dead skin. According to Healthline, the epidermis, the thin outer layer of our skin, works as a barrier between skin and the external environment. The dead skin on the epidermis does not let moisture reach the inner skin leaving it dry.
Therefore, it is essential to exfoliate before moisturising. Healthline suggests that our skin keeps on changing and regenerates every 27 days, which means that dead cells need to be removed by using facial scrubs to reveal the young inner skin.
A natural exfoliant like New Zealand Sea Salt exfoliant can clean the skin by removing dead cells and replenish it with much-needed nutrients and oils. Using natural skincare in the right way not only makes our skin clean, radiant, and supple but also improves blood circulation, lightens scars, blemishes, and helps to defy our age.
For example, our New Zealand sea salt exfoliant has sea salt and other natural ingredients like calendula extracts, carrot oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, Totarol, and white clay. Sea salt minerals are beneficial in conditioning and rewarding the skin. Jojoba and sweet almond oil moisturise and soften the skin. Totarol, a natural preservative and a rare phytochemical with potent anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties, comes from the recycled bark of the New Zealand totara tree. White clay is known for its detoxifying and softening properties.
How to use our Revive Sea Salt Exfoliant
1 Apply exfoliant to damp skin and scrub gently in small circles to remove dull skin cells until fresh skin shines through. Rinse off and pat dry before moisturising.
2 If you want to use it as a mask, generously press onto dry skin. After a few minutes, you'll experience a wonderful sea salt tingle (just like that feeling on a summer day when your skin is drying after swimming in the sea). Leave on for 5-20 minutes before rinsing off to reveal exceptionally soft and conditioned skin.

Step 2 - Apply Revive Sea Salt Exfoliant as a mask to detox the skin. Leave on for 10-20 minutes before rinsing off. You'll experience super soft skin. Pat dry.
Step 3 - Now you're ready to apply the Vision Revive Eye Gel to create firmness and reduce puffiness and dark shadows.
Step 4 – Apply Refreshing Citrus Lotion as your first layer of skin nutrition to help preserve the tone and elasticity of your skin. Wait 30 seconds to dry.
Step 5 – Finally apply Vision’s Anti-oxidant Rich Youth Serum for an intensive final layering of Amazonian and Tahitian super oils. Allow 10 minutes for the serum to fully absorb in the skin before going to bed.
For best results, repeat the treatment process twice a week for six weeks to achieve more healthier and vibrant looking skin.
