Back to school beauty: the ultimate essentials to stash in your locker
5 essentials to help you ace your skincare regime this fall.
It’s October and we’re getting ready to go ‘back to school’! Even if not literally, fall marks the beginning of a new working year, so while you grab your pens and stock up on notepads, think about adding these 5 beauty essentials to your locker this September.
Although it’s no longer summer, sun protection should still be at the forefront of our skincare regimes. According to the SCF, up to 80% of UV rays can pass through clouds, so not only is it important to apply in the morning, but also to reapply throughout the day.
Why not kill two birds with one stone, and use a product in your morning skincare routine which also includes sun protection? Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Multi Defender moisturizer is not only ultra-nourishing but is enriched with SPF 25 for the ultimate combination of protection, repair and hydration. With the help of concentrated Baicalin, which has strong antioxidant powers, and F. Lumbricalis, this powerful formula protects skin from its environment as well as nourishing skin cells to provide visible repair in 8 weeks.
Who knows what the day will bring? Stay prepared with a CC cream for those little touch-ups throughout the day. The Aquasource Evermoist C.C. Cushion seamlessly blends into skin for effective on-the-go coverage to help diminish blemishes and pores, whilst also helping to fight against dry, autumnal skin through its hydrating formula. Enriched with Thermal Life Plankton, this handy and ultra-portable product helps to brighten and even out your complexion at a moment's notice. Plus, its added SPF protection defends skin from harmful UV rays - it’s a win-win situation!
Have you ever noticed that your skin starts to feel drier as the nights draw closer and the air gets colder? Well, the transition from a warm summer to those cooler fall months can wreak havoc on our skin. As temperatures fall, the atmosphere draws moisture out of our skin cells, leaving our complexion feeling dry and tight.
Be sure to keep skin nourished in order to keep your complexion looking radiant, healthy and smooth throughout fall with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer such as Aquasource Cocoon. Enriched with Mannose and Thermal Plankton, envelop your complexion in its 48-hour hydration to help repair and protect skin throughout the cooler month.
When September hits, not only does our skin feel drier, but so do our lips. In fact, the skin in this area is so thin that what we actually see when we look at the rosy red tint of our lips, are the blood vessels underneath the epidermis. This layer of skin is therefore particularly sensitive to the the wind, sunlight and cold air, which can leave our lips feeling chapped and dehydrated.
Be sure to use a lip balm such as Beurre de Lèvres to provide intense protection and nourishment whilst, powered by acacia sugar and 5 naturally derived vegetable oils, gives your lips a naturally plumped, smooth and hydrated feel.
You never know where your day may take you, so one beauty essential that we would never leave our house without is an invigorating body spray. Stay fresh throughout the day with Biotherm’s Eau Relax , which, with hints of citrus and woody undertones, reconnects and replenishes our senses, reinvigorated at the drop of a hat!
Keep these beauty essentials close to you this fall, and be prepared for whatever fall may blow your way!
