With Autumn comes lots of fun, from kicking up leaves on long forest walks to cosy nights in with your favourite box set and spiced pumpkin lattes. Then there’s all the fun of Halloween. It might be our favourite season, but with it comes cooler, windier weather which can wreak havoc on our skin.
That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our top products for protecting and nourishing your skin this Autumn. Perhaps the best thing about them is that there’s nothing scary in them at all. We just can’t get over how frightfully good they are.
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL PUMPKIN 24K GOLD MASK 25G £8.50
Rich in vitamin A, B2, B3, C and betacarotene and two essential fatty acids omega 3 and 6, potassium, magnesium and zinc, pumpkin-packed skincare can prevent wrinkles, inflammation and acne.
Perfect for those in search of a premium treat for tired, stressed-out skin, this sheet mask contains 24ct gold and pumpkin extracts to soothe and revitalise skin.
The bio-cellulose sheet mask hugs every contour of the face in order to impart its precious, skin-boosting ingredients.
First in the line-up is pumpkin extract, which is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids to increase cell turnover, brighten and smooth the skin.
Alongside this, 24ct gold (yes, really) minimises redness and works to reduce signs of ageing, slowing down collagen depletion and increasing elasticity.
Just 10-20 minutes with this mask will not only have you looking like a gold-painted Bond girl (think Goldfinger), but your skin will be left feeling soft, plump and gorgeously radiant.
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL PUMPKIN SLEEPING PACK 1OOML £18.50
A perfect (and perfectly effortless) treat for dull, lacklustre skin, Too Cool For School’s Pumpkin Sleeping Pack works as you slumber to reveal a smooth, radiant complexion when your alarm rudely awakens you.
It’s enriched with pumpkin, which, in turn, is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate and increase cellular turnover to make skin brighter and smoother.
Also containing vitamin A and beta carotene, your skin will be plumped and deeply hydrated overnight, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles and adding to the radiant result.
Stockists include Boots and other selected retailers.
HOLISTIC SCOTLAND NATURALS LEMON LIP BALM £3.50
We may be biased but this citrusy lip balm works wonders to help prevent and relieve dry, chapped and cracked lips. Even when the wind is howling, this balm will form a barrier around your lips. Formulated with lemon essential oil, this zesty lip balm is packed full of vitamins and leaves lips feeling soft and moisturised. Made from a blend of coconut, shea butter and vitamin E oil. Its vegan, organic, true cruelty-free and smells good enough to eat.
HOLISTIC SCOTLAND NATURALS DAILY DEFENCE MOISTURISER 50ML £12.50
Keeping your skin well hydrated and moisturised is extra important during this blustery season. Its also important to still have some sort of protection against the sun. Our Daily Defence moisturisers all have an SPF of 25, with an option for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
These anti-ageing and rejuvenating daily moisturisers contain the co-enzyme CO-Q10, which can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Theyre designed to be used daily to eliminate toxins, brighten, tone and tighten the skin. Theyre also vegan, organic and true cruelty free.
Apply a small amount to face and neck twice daily (morning and night), avoiding the delicate eye area. Gently tap and blend into evenly into the skin. Or you might like our richer, more intense night cream.
