There’s nothing like a change in season to cause a hiccup with the appearance of our skin.
I don’t know about you but I feel as though I’m in the process of rapidly going from having that natural glow and dewey effect to lingering somewhere in the dull and dry category!! These are the products I use to rescue my skin at this time of year.
Skin Ceuticals Blemish & Age Cleanser
This cleanser is designed for skin prone to imperfections. It’s what I swear by whenever my skin feels congested, especially after the summer when I’ve been using SPF regularly. It’s amazing at deeply removing make-up and excess oils while keeping the face looking youthful.
Buy it online here for £37 (it might seem a little expensive, but the bottle will last you 3 months!) Because this product contains Glycolic and Salicylic acid it can leave your skin feeling a little tight which is why I always follow up with the following Hydrating Mist.
Linda Meredith Hydrating Mist
A product that I can safely say is my absolute go to, and one I use all year round is this Linda Meredith Hydrating Mist. A few sprays onto the face after you’ve cleansed is the best way to instantly restore moisture into the skin. Its fragrance is amazing. Including rosemary, lavender and thyme oils and also contains a high percentage of Hyaluronic Acid, which again is incredible for a youthful glow as it surrounds collagen to keep it nourished and hydrated.
I also sometimes spritz my face with it after I’ve put on my make up, for added ‘dewey’ appearance.
Buy it online here for £29, it’s one you won’t regret.
Sönd Training Serum
This serum is a relatively new one for me. I’ve been using for the last couple of months and I particularly like applying it before bed because it ensures I wake up looking fresh-faced. This serum is very hydrating but also strengthens the barrier of the skin and works wonders on those suffering with acne or eczema. A little goes a very long way, so you only need to use about 1/2 a pump for your whole face.
Find it here for £42.
Linda Meredith Q3
I swear by this moisturiser throughout the seasons. It’s very rich yet feels so light when on the skin… It’s absorbed easily! It’s an advanced ‘wrinkle solution’ cream which leaves my face feeling unbelievably fresh.
It rejuvenates the natural moisturising system which helps to firm the surface layers, its high content of Vitamin E which is soothing and calming for the skin and PurCellin (which comes from ducks!) and is a component of bio-oil which aids the repairing of skin conditions including sun damage and scarring.
I use this as my day cream and you should too! Buy it here
Clarins Instant smooth self-tanning
…Because no one wants to lose that fresh-off-the-beach glow and this is the greatest extender! Its Aloe Vera content helps to maintain the intensity of the tan for longer and it’s quite thick so you only need to use a small amount, but it has a magic ability to be able to smooth out your skin (including fine lines and enlarged pores). Trust me on this one!

Mind Body Soul Grounding lotion
Another relatively new discovery for me, but over the last month (while I’ve needed some extra grounding), I’ve been swearing by this lotion. I use it after I’ve showered/bathed before bed. It smells amazing due to the vast amount of incredible essential oils that are used in it and of course each oil has been carefully selected to help with grounding and feeling calm.
Needing these feelings of calm? Here you go!
With these products in mind, always remember it’s about what you’re putting into your bodies that counts, too! Keep up your water intake. Make sure you’re having a mug of hot water and lemon each morning! Evening primrose oil capsules are also fantastic.
