Transitioning from Summer to Autumn
Are are we ready for the Transition from Summer to Autumn? Apparently, this weekend suppose to be around 20C. Hot and cold weather make us unwell and our body fights to adjust to the fluctuation of temperature. So we need a support. Support from good nutritional food which will support our immune system ( check in the next post ), we need de-stress our body and mind – as many Autumn parties, product launches coming up. We are entering into the busiest time of the year. We simply need to look after our dosha – our whole mind-body type. In Ayurveda, health is defined as the dynamic state of balance between mind, body and environment. So fascinating, so interesting and if you like me that would rather take more holistic approach to your well-being, everything about Ayurveda you will find interesting and hopefully helpful. Learn and read more in Mauli Rituals website and take a dosha quiz.
Year after year, I search for something new, something to support immune system, beauty product to relax body and mind. Whether might be new skin care on the market, effective body product ‘healthy beauty shot’ or healthy dish. Beauty world is not slowing down quite opposite, more and more founders create new formulations to protect our skin from free radicals, pollution, winds, pure organic beauty market is spreading fast and we do look into more holistic way to heal us and more alternative way to our well-being.
Here I present few of my favorite Autumn Beauty products which will protect your skin, in the fast paced city we live in. Body products to soothe your body and mind and, a couple of organics picks from Neal’s Yard Remedies.
My Beauty choice for the Transition from Summer to Autumn
Neals Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm 50g £40
For those upcoming colder days and nights, we need to start listening what the skin needs. More moisture, more TLC. Multi-purpose best-selling beauty balm with a full of anti-oxidant, wild rosehip seed oil gives you a radiant and glowing complexion. Can be used as your balm cleanser in autumn and winter months ( don’t forget to use muslin cloth to remove all the excess ) or leave it on as a moisturiser. I would prefer as night moisturiser as it is a rich balm consistency and could be just a little too much oils before your morning makeup application. For anyone with oily skin, do use sparingly. A little goes long way. Lovely girls at St Pancras Kings cross Neal’s Yard will be happy to give you a little sachet sample to try it out first.
OSKIA City Life Booster £110
The latest on the market, Oskia City Life Booster is to be considered to try it out. It is concentrated booster which protects the skin against indoor and outdoors pollution. Blends of micor-encapsulated of Co-Enzyme Q10, Astanxantin, Malachite, Vitamin B3, C, E, O3 Yeast Lysate and unique EUK-134. EUK-134 is exceptionally rare regenerating molecule that scavenges superoxide free radicals and converts reactive oxygen into water and oxygen. Wow sounds like a support molecule! Can be used ONLY by added 1 drop to your favourite serum or moisturiser. We do not recommend to use on its own. It is highly concentrated so just protect your sensitive skin. A little application tip – do not use any skincare with strong acid specially NOT which contains Ascorbic acid straight after as it will completely destroy the EUK-134 which is based on manganese.
OSKIA City Life Facial Mist £48
Comparison other mists, Oskia latest City Life Facial Mist is clean without any alcohol. It might feel more watery when you spray on your face but that is because with 0% alcohol you get heavier duty of water. Still, I can use after my makeup or on clean skin. This anti-pollution beautifying mist hydrates your skin instantly, gives brightening effect and refreshes. It contains micro-encapsulated blends of Astaxanthin, Malachite and Co-Enxyme Q10, Vitamin C, B3, Yeast Lysate and EUK-134 which protects against pollution as well as works free-radical damage throughout the day.
