If you’re in Cape Town like I am, you’ve definitely started to feel the chill of Autumn approaching.
With autumn weather steadily making its appearance, many of us are reaching for clay masks, scrubs and moisturisers to polish, protect and nourish dry skin.
Your autumn skin care routine shouldn’t be complicated though. Read on to see how you can simplify your autumn skin care routine in four easy ways with Reydiant’s eco-friendly products made from truly natural ingredients.
1. Exfoliate with Reydiant’s Body Polishes
When it comes to skin and body care this autumn, natural skincare products are best to use to cleanse and exfoliate your skin. The natural oils used in our body polishes helps to nourish your skin and protect it from the drying effect of the cold weather by locking in moisture. The natural salts help to buff your skin by gently lifting dull, dead skin cells from your skin for a healthy glow. When using our body polishes you can be sure that what you are putting onto your skin is effective, natural and will do no harm to our environment. Once you’ve finished your jar, you can reuse it for other products or even return it to us! Available here.
2. Moisturise with Reydiant’s Beauty Bars!
Since autumn and winter is so dry, it’s best to keep your skin smooth, nourished and moisturised. Reydiant’s natural skin care products works with your skin. I’ve selected natural oils that absorb and penetrate easily into your skin to give your skin the moisture and nourishment it needs, unlike many commercial products that coats your skin making it appear to be moisturised. Our Sensuous Beauty Bars are amazing for nourishing and moisturising your skin since it’s made predominantly from Shea Butter. Another favourite for moisturising is our Gorgeous Tummy, made with grapeseed, jojoba and olive oil to name a few.
Jojoba oil is perfect for all skin types, throughout the year. It provides dry skin incredible moisture and nourishment, while balances sebum production in oily skin. It’s also rich in Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, as well as packed with Vitamins A, D and E. It’s quickly absorbed and the best part is that it doesn’t block pores and is non-greasy. This is why we love using it in our body oils and especially our facial oils!
3. Moisturising Facial Care
Autumn tends to have us reaching for clay masks and moisturising creams to nourish dry skin. Reydiant’s Clay Mask and Facial Cleansing Clay Bars are the perfect addition to your Autumn Facial Care Routine since they gently exfoliate your skin and remove unwanted toxins. For moisturising I’d recommend using our facial oils either as a cleanser, toner and moisturiser, or to add additional moisture to your skin. Available here.
4. Sun Protection
The main thing we tend to neglect during the colder months is sun protection! Nothing should stop or prevent you from protecting yourself from the sun. No matter your skin type or age. If you can’t use sunscreen then definitely make use of a hat or cap and wear long sleeves. The sun/UV rays in South Africa is one of the harshest in the world.
Using sunscreen everyday is a must all year long. Also remember that the SPF number you use is an indication for how long you’ll be protected from the sun eg SPF 30, 30min of sun protection. So if you’re in the sun for longer than that, you need to reapply it for it to be effective.
