Guest Post: Things beauty addicts forget in the Autumn/Winter

Hi everyone, my name is Sophia and I am very happy to be guest posting for Amy today.
Over on my blog, Tattooed Tealady, Amy was the very first person to do a guest post for me. So I am happy to be finally returning the favour with my very own guest post for her blog!

Things beauty addicts forget in the Autumn/Winter

I don’t know about you but my favourite time of year is Autumn. But there are so many things many beauty obsessives seem to forget about when Autumn and Winter come about. Here are my top six things which I think are still as important in the Autumn and Winter as they are in the Spring and Summer!

Use an SPF!

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, or where in the World you live. Even here in the UK where it’s grey and dark, it is still important to use an SPF. No matter how dark it may look outside, rays from the Sun can still reach our skin and damage it. Using an SPF moisturiser keeps your skin protected all year round. My favourite is the Antipodes Immortal SPF15 Natural Sun Protector.

Don’t forget about your toes!

When Spring and Summer come around every one is in a mad rush to get their feet flip-
flop perfect. I think looking after your feet is important all year round, not just in the warmer, sunny months. Using a foot scrub in the bath or shower followed by a moisturising foot lotion, cream or butter can keep your feet super soft and pampered all year round! I love applying my Dirty Works Best Foot Forward Foot Butter before bed!

Nourish your skin!

The weather in the Autumn and Winter can really give our skin a beating. It can make our
skin dry, dehydrated and rough to the touch. Using the right kind of products to keep your
skin protected, nourished and moisturised is even more important in the Autumn and Winter. I love using my Nourish Argan Skin Rescue and my Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing

Night Cream before bed on cold nights, especially if I have been out in the cold, windy

Keep your skin soft!

I love using body butters all year round but just as much as the cold can affect our faces, it
can affect our bodies, too. I find using body oil works really well to keep my skin all over my body super soft and I just adore the Di Palomo Wild Fig & Grape Dry Oil!

Don’t be afraid to highlight!

Everyone seems to change their makeup choices when the new, colder seasons roll around. But don’t be afraid to reach for old favourites! I like to use my Benefit High Beam all year round to give my makeup that something extra and really finish off a look!

So those are my top five tips and top six products that I think all beauty lovers should
remember in the Autumn and Winter months! I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you try to stick to using in the Autumn and Winter or whether you usually change your routine up! You can find me over on my blog which is Tattooed Tealady, as well as on Twitter where I am always happy to have a natter! @Tattooedtealady!

Thank you Amy for letting me guest post today here on your blog, I hope you and all of your readers enjoyed my post!

Love, Sophia xo
