Update Your Skincare For Autumn with Zelens

2018-09-20-B&U1746

Why should we update our skincare in autumn?
It’s important to adjust our skincare according to the season. In autumn we need to put the emphasis on the repair of the skin since during the summer we had a significant exposure to UV light and other environmental aggressors. The best thing after exposure to pollution, environmental aggressors and UV light is really down to good cleansing of the skin, and moisturisers that can help restore and reinforce the skin’s barrier function. It is of course paramount to use a sunscreen.

  1. Use a repairing cream to restore the skin from any damage from the summer. (Marine Complex Deep Restorative Cream)

“Ironically, women will happily spend hundreds on anti-ageing creams and serums,” Dr. Lens says “But if you protect yourself from the sun, with a good quality broad spectrum sun protector, you are half-way there.”

Shiso leaf acts as a powerful antioxidant defending skin from free radical damage. It helps to prevent skin reactivity and soothes sensitive skin. Shiso leaf is well-known in Kampo medicine for its strong detox properties.
