When August rolls into September, here in Cyprus the sun will still be shining, but with the change in seasons, you do need to update your skincare regime ready for the cooler autumn weather. Just as you update your wardrobe with the seasons, it’s a good idea to refresh your skincare routine and look at some new products and spa treatments that will ensure your skin is protected and looking good through the autumn months and into winter.

Banish dead skin cells with exfoliation

The sunshine feels lovely beaming down on your skin, but it can damage it and leave you with dead, dry skin that looks tired and dull. A good exfoliation will get rid of the dead skin cells leaving your skin noticeably softer and smoother. Try an exfoliating treatment such as the La Mer Spa Body Polish, this not only gets rid of the dead skin cells, but it also combines massage techniques to tone, firm and eliminate toxins. Your facial skin needs extra care when exfoliating so it’s important to use products are efficient yet gentle. Book a La Mer Spa Express Facial and your skin will be cleansed, gently exfoliated and hydrated.

Don’t put away the SPF

When the sun is a little less bright, it can be tempting to think that you no longer need to apply your sunscreen. However, you really shouldn’t do this as the sun’s rays can still cause damage even on a cool and cloudy day. So be sure to apply your SPF products right through autumn too. Protection is so important to prevent future skin damage.

Bring back the moisture

The summer weather really does dry out your skin, so now is the time to put in a little extra effort to replace the moisture your skin has lost. A slightly thicker moisturiser than usual can benefit particularly dry skin or treat yourself to a La Mer Spa Intense Firming Treatment which is tailor made to repair sun damage and moisturise your skin.

Your mind is reflected in your body

When summer turns to autumn and the weather turns a little cooler, it can be hard to say goodbye to those glorious steamy hot summer days and long warm evenings. This can sometimes leave us feeling a down, but stress can make us ill and will show through in the condition of our skin, so to look after our skin we need to take care of our mind. So do plan some autumn fun treats. A relaxing massage can work wonders for our state of mind, leaving us feeling de-stressed and totally refreshed with a more positive attitude. Why not get together with friends or your partner and enjoy a La Mer Spa Day? A little pampering certainly goes a long way and it’s a very enjoyable experience. You’ll have use of all the facilities such as a beautiful indoor pool, sauna and steam bath, you can enjoy refreshments throughout the day and choose from a wide range of beneficial treatments. It’s the perfect way to start any season!
