Autumn skincare swaps to make now
We all know how important it is to be using the correct skincare, but have you changed up your routine in time for autumn?
If you’ve had any sort of holiday, chances are your skin has been subjected to balmy heat, sunshine, salt water and chlorine meaning that it’s super dehydrated and in need of some TLC. Pair that with plummeting temperatures and the return of central heating, and autumn can play havoc with your skin. Here are a few simple swaps to make to re-energise your skin this season.
