As soon as the weather changes, temperature fluctuation can play havoc with your skin. You might notice a certain tightness, dullness or loss of glow. Here are my beauty must-haves for Autumn to help keep my complexion look bright and dewy all year round.
Autumn is a good time to refresh your skin care routine. I have always been a lover of natural facial oils and have recently tried Nakin. The brand’s anti-ageing revitalising face Oil,£22, is blended with skin enhancing plant oils that glide on without greasiness which is great for my combination skin. Baobab, Argan, Peach Kernel and Jojoba oils work to revitalise, soothe and renew skin and leaves it looking healthy. A real glow giver! Buy it at nakinskincare.com
This multi-tasking Clark’s Botanicals Retinol Rescue Eye Serum – £80 (15ml) helps you fight wrinkles day & night. I just can’t get enough of this super hydrating eye serum that tightens, firms and brightens up the delicate skin around the eyes.
A trio of Time-Released Retinol + High Potency Retinol + Colloidal Oatmeal—absorbs slowly to deliver brighter, more even skin tone to the eye area without the usual irritation. Jasmine integrated with Plankton Extract and Hexapeptides helps rebalance, firm and tighten skin. Hyaluronic Acid and Yeast Extract helps hydrate skin. This formula also features extract from the White Bird of Paradise plant, which is known to fight dark under eye circles, and rare Swiss Apple Stem Cells, known to help rejuvenate and soften lines around eye area.
I loved the cooling ceramic applicator that delivers the refreshing, weightless serum. Try it under or over makeup, any time of day. Buy it in store at SpaceNK and online at SpaceNK.com and clarksbotanicals.com

Don’t forget SPF
There are so many SPF skin care and make-up products out there. Find the one that suits your skin and wear it religiously (in the day), if you want to avoid skin discoloration. My go-to make-up brand BareMinerals makes my skin dewy and glowing all year round. I use their BareSkin Pure Brightening serum with SPF20 which is a very good protection. £28, from BareMinerals.co.uk
