Autumn is a time when not only nature changes, there's a crisp chill in the air, but also the skin needs extra care, such as moisturisation and protection from the elements. As soon as the temperature drops, our skin starts to show signs of dryness and dragging, redness, extreme sensitivity and possibly signs of rosacea.

Using products that are adapted to your skin's condition can help you maintain a healthy and beautiful complexion, whatever the weather.

Here are our top tips for autumn skincare to help you recover from the intense summer sun and the changing weather, season...

1. Choose a serum or booster that will moisturise your skin throughout autumn. The weak rays of the sun, the chlorine of the pool can dehydrate the skin. We therefore recommend:

111SKIN Hyaluronic Acid Aque Booster - attracts water to the dermis layer, thus hydrating and replenishing the skin.

Biologique Recherche Serum Extraits Tissulaires - an instant source of hydration. The combined action of the active ingredients helps to activate the skin's internal moisturising mechanisms, slows imperceptible water loss and strengthens the hydrolipidic barrier. The quality of the skin is visibly improved - it is moisturised and protected from adverse environmental conditions.

Biologique Recherche Finishing Serum YALL~02 - is an impact serum to improve skin hydration, containing high doses of hyaluronic acid and antioxidant plant extracts. This intensive moisturising treatment provides the skin with the moisture it needs to function properly and feel comfortable. The results are immediate, fine lines caused by dehydration are smoothed.

2. It's time for a serious skin moisturiser - a cream.

111SKIN Nocturnal Eclipse Recovery Cream NACY2 - thick, creates a protective barrier. It prevents ageing, protects against environmental aggressors (wind, cold, etc.), moisturises and replenishes the complexion.

111SKIN Y Theorem Day Cream NAC Y2 - enriches the skin with active ingredients that prevent the signs of ageing, while providing a protective barrier to shield the skin from external aggressors. Lighter, thinner consistency than Nocturnal Eclipse Recovery Cream NAC Y2.

Biologique Recherche Creme Dermo-RL - acts as an epidermal shield and is a complete rejuvenating, regenerating skincare treatment. The formula is enriched with lipid-restoring NMF (natural moisturising factor), hyaluronic acid and protectants to replenish the skin's lipids.

Biologique Recherche Creme Masque Vernix - This cream/mask forms a protective barrier for the epidermis, gives the skin a "second birth" and hydrates and replenishes the skin. It can be used both as a cream and as a mask for those in need of skin treatment. Thanks to its moisturising, repairing and protective action, Crème Masque Vernix restores the DNA of skin cells damaged by UV rays and reduces the signs of ageing.

3. Pay extra attention to your choice of lip balm and eye cream.

If these two things are not already part of your skincare regime, they should become a part of your skincare routine during the colder months of the year. Admittedly, Vaseline is a favourite with many as a lip moisturiser. It does provide comfort and hydration, but not for long. If you want extra renewal, a lipid layer and protection, we recommend Biologique Recherche Biokiss - it intelligently protects, prevents water evaporation from the epidermis, deeply moisturises. The lips become plump and soft. Dehydration lines and fine lines are reduced.

The eye area is the thinnest area of the skin and therefore requires particularly careful and selected care. Each eye care product has its own function:

Biologique Recherche Creme Contour Des Yeux Et Levres Biofixine - prevents existing wrinkles and fine lines from forming. The formula is rich in antioxidant active ingredients that help to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the environment, moisturise, tone and smooth the eye area.

111SKIN Celestial Black Daimond Contour Gel - a light emulsion, suitable for use in the areas of the face where fine lines and wrinkles are located. This Contour Gel contains MATRIXYL 3000, which replaces the results of botulinum toxin injections in filling in wrinkles. If you have used this Contour Gel during the summer and now feel the need for a thicker consistency, we recommend Celestial Black Diamond Eye Cream.

111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Eye Cream -  a rich, powerful anti-ageing formula specially formulated to fight the signs of ageing in the eye area. Multi-action action eliminates wrinkles, gives even skin tone. The eye area is left firmed, rejuvenated and brightened. Smoothes the skin's relief, wrinkles.

4. Time for micropuncture and exfoliation treatments.

The Biologique Recherche Masque Exfoliant Visage P50 treatment is designed to break down the "top layer" or keratinocytes in the stratum corneum so that the skin can perform its protective functions, reducing the signs of ageing, skin sensitivity, redness, post-acne scarring, etc.

The micropuncture procedure is almost painless and aims to improve the deeper layer of the dermis, thus increasing blood circulation, regenerating the skin, reducing the signs of ageing and giving it firmness and elasticity.

*These treatments are not suitable for all Skin Instants (recommendations by our specialist during the consultation).

5. Don't forget SPF.

Why do you need it in autumn too, you may ask? Whatever the season, UVA (long-wave) rays blast our complexion and accelerate the ageing process. Using SPF protection on a daily basis protects against photo-ageing.
