How To Prepare Your Skin For Autumn

post summer skincare
How is it already August? It feels like Summer has flown by and I'm cursing myself for not making the most of it. But now is the time to make the most of the warmer weather as you only have a few weeks left. Make plans, see friends and just have fun.
August is also the time to get your skin ready for the upcoming season. Here are a few beauty products you'll be wanting to reach for this month.

Guiont Glamour Sun Gel SPF 15* £30.50
A gel-to-oil sunscreen is just what you need to add a touch of luxury to your Summer. The light-weight formula glides on effortlessly leaving skin silky smooth and satin-like with a subtle golden glow. I love the sweet scent this has, it feels like a real, luxurious treat for your skin.
Wilkinson Sword Bikini Razor £10.99
Get your bum down to the beach before it get's too cold and you'll have to pack away your bikini for another year. The Wilkinson Sword Bikini Razor is a doubled ended razor which allows you to get beach-ready in a flash. One end has a trimmer and the other has a razor. Not a bad little gadget.
Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs* £7.99
This product was designed for those 'because-I-live-in-the-UK-and-the-sun-is-a-rare-sight' moments. This genius product from Cocoa Brown is like makeup for your legs. You simply spray onto a tanning mitt and apply to your legs for instantly bronzed pins. This is also water resistant so it won't streak if you get caught in the rain!
St. Ives invigorating Apricot Body Scrub £5.49
I'm such a huge lover of scrubs. I've had this chunky tub from St Ives for ages now so it is proving good value for money. The creamy formula contains fine walnut granules which buff away dead skin cells. The scrub isn't too abrasive so you can get away with using it 2-3 times a week. If you wanted a harsher exfoliation I recommend rubbing this onto dry skin before rinsing off.
Beyond Organic Rejuvenating Serum* £30.76
To help sun-soaked skin heal after a Summer of holidays, beach parties and festivals you need a restoring serum. This highly concentrated serum from Beyond Organic gives skin a slight golden glow; perfect for the post-summer months. It contains Rosehip oil, Sea Buckthorn fruit and Macadamia oil which softens and restores the skin.

What beauty products do you like to use after the Summer?


  1. The weather here in Australia is just starting to get warmer so a lot of these are relevant for that too ^___^


    1. Of course! I hope you can find some of these brands in Austrailia :)

    2. I'm from Aus too :) I have the St Ives scrub but it's in a tube, not a tub :) It's a great exfoliator - especially with it coming up to Spring for us :)

  2. I'm definitely going to be trying to prepare my skin for Autumn this month - great to see the Guiont product making an appearance, I haven't heard of this before! Thanks! Also the Beyond Organic serum, is that an all over body product?!

    1. It's just a face product, I use 2-3 drops in the evening!

  3. Heavier face creams! Only at night to get the skin ready for the colder months!
