Autumn Skin Care

Why Skin Care in Autumn is essential

We all know her. There is that one friend or acquaintance who has radiant skin all year long. How does she do it? Her skin never dulls and she is always glowing, come rain or shine in the cool autumn and harsh winters. Well, consider her secrets officially unlocked! We have some great tips by Dr Nishel Patel at Skinesse who has agreed to share his exclusive tips on skin care in autumn.

Start with a Deep Cleansing Treatment

Sometimes the best way to renew your skin care in autumn is to start with a brand new layer. A medicated peel can be the best solution as it literally causes your skin to peel and reveals new regenerated skin which is smoother, clearer and more even in colour. Always ensure your skin has undergone the appropriate skin care preparation prior to your peel – this helps ensure your skin enjoys the maximum benefits and results of the treatment.

Take Care of Your Skin at Home

If you went to the gym every day and ate doughnuts or ice-cream for dinner, would you see significant results? Probably not. So, you won’t maximise the results of your in-clinic treatment if you neglect your skin at home and forget to use advanced cosmeceutical skin care products. It’s not enough to simply rely on your cleanser if you want that warm autumn glow.


Just as you need to nourish your body with the right healthy food, you need to nourish your skin with the right active ingredients. Keep on top of your skin during the cool autumn months with Retinol Renewal Serum. This incredible product will help boost and nourish your skin immediately upon application. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that promotes cell renewal in the skin by increasing collagen and elastin production. This helps your skin appear smoother with a clearer, lifted and more even skin tone.

Some of the benefits of Retinol are,

  • Retinol can clear your acne
  • Retinol can fight signs of ageing
  • Retinol help even skin tone
  • Retinol is cost effective
  • Retinol can be purchased over the counter


Retinol is for anyone spotting the telltale signs of aging on their skin, even in the earliest of stages: dullness, uneven tone, fine lines, enlarged pores, etc. The ingredient can be a bit irritating for those with sensitive skin, but you can strength train your fragile complexion and get to a point where you can tolerate the potent vitamin A derivative (read on for the how-to). Who can’t use it? Prescription retinoids aren’t recommended for pregnant women (high doses of vitamin A can be harmful to an unborn baby), so talk to your doctor about products containing over-the-counter retinol.


Many people apply retinol at night, when their skin is naturally in repair mode. However, there’s no hard-and-fast rule that says you can’t wear it during the day, too. In fact, experts say it’s a common myth that you can’t wear retinol in sunlight. But because retinol encourages fresh, healthy skin, topping it with SPF 30 sunscreen is a must.

If you have sensitive skin, you can start off using retinol as infrequently as every third night (or day), working your way to every other day. Then, if you’re not feeling any stinging or seeing any redness, increase to daily use.


Because retinol is a major multitasker and works by speeding up cell turnover, you want to spread a thin layer all over your face, not just on specific lines or spots.

You can also venture below the chin and apply it anywhere you see the signs of aging: neck, décolletage, and even the tops of your hands.


Maintain Your Skin for the Future

Your skin is the largest organ on your body and accounts for 15% of your body’s weight, which is why it needs ongoing maintenance. If you drove a dazzling brand new Maserati, would you skip a maintenance service? We hope not! So, why would you skip one on your skin?
