As I walk to the tube this week I notice I’m enjoying the drop in temperature a little too much and I’m starting to feel guilty that I’m excited summer is over and fall is here. I can’t wait for gorgeous autumn walks and getting into cosy jumpers, coats and warm scarfs! To say my London apartment was scorchio this summer would be an understatement and I’m looking forward to cooler nights to get my beauty sleep! As the leaves on the trees are starting to turn, we need to prepare our skin and tailor our skin to the change in weather.
Step 1: Exfoliate
If you’ve been tanning this summer, then now’s a good time to buff off those dead skin cells and start a new tailored Korean skincare routine
for autumn! Brighten up dull skin by exfoliating with Klairs Black Sugar Scrub
(£15) - I love the way this scrub melts into the skin, gently cleansing and buffing off those dead skin cells. If you’re into chemical exfoliation, Wish Formula Bubble Peeling Pad
(£5) contains much needed AHAs, BHAs and is packed with vitamins. The unique fun Korean pad bubbles up in your hand leaving skin fresh and renewed.
Step 2: Nourish
Revitalise and nourish your freshly scrubbed skin with vitamins to ensure healthy skin before the cold sets in. We have some beautiful serums, if you have dull skin tone we have the ultimate antioxidant serum: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum
(£17). It energizes and rejuvenates your skin with the power of pure Vitamin C!
Sun exposure is a prime suspect for hastening collagen loss, so after our Indian summer boost your collagen production by using the “it” ingredient in Asia: Snail Mucin. This strange yet incredible ingredient is appearing in more and more cosmetic products thanks to its anti-ageing properties – snail mucin stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin which leaves your skin looking its absolute best. No need to pop into the garden and gather your own though, we have the perfect Korean snail essence from Cosrx to add to your autumn Korean skincare routine, the Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Step 3: Moisturise
You may be starting to think about the moisture level in your skin for the autumn months and looking to switch from a lighter gel moisturiser to a more hydrating cream. The Asian beauty regime is all about hydration, Aromatica’s Rose Absolute Vital Cream
(£35) is the perfect anti-ageing night cream with vitamin E to hydrate, nourish and revitalise dehydrated skin. It also comes in a fluid
(£30) for those who need a slightly lighter option.
Step 4: Treat
As the days start to get drier, boost your skin once or twice a week with face sheet masks to moisturise and allow vitamins to penetrate deeper into the skin. Achieve the Asian flawless skin with Lindsay’s Vitamin Rubber Mask
(£5) and Klair’s Rich Moist Sheet Mask
(£1.80), they are the best masks to get that glow back in your skin. Our sleeping masks are also a great way to get in extra hydration while you snooze. Dream of bananas with Tony Moly’s Banana Sleeping Pack
