I love autumn but with it comes the cold and my skin, nails and hair need a little more tlc.  So in an effort to ensure my beauty routine keeps up with the changing weather, I’ve started to include a few new products to my daily routine.

These autumn beauty essentials represent what I’ve included in my day to day routine.


Sudocrem Skin Care Cream.

Beauty Essentials for Fall


The absolute joy of Sudocrem is its high zinc oxide content. That’s the magical antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient that makes Sudocrem my go to healing cream.  Think beyond the bum for this one.  It’s not just about nappy rash, it can be applied to any dry skin patches – even on the face and the extra zinc helps repair the skin cells. You can use it on any rash, cuts, grazes or any other skin irritation that you need to fix.



Prevasore Everyday Lip Therapy.

Beauty Essentials for Fall

As autumn is already here and winter not far behind, the cold weather and the central heating can be so detrimental to my skin.  My lips seem to get the brunt of it at times as the skin is so thin around the lip area.  In an effort to prevent my lips from drying out I have been using Prevasore as a moisture protection barrier to stop that from happening.


Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Repair & Protect Conditioner.

Beauty Essentials for Fall


The Pantene Pro-Vitamin 3 Minute Miracle Repair & Protect Conditioner is a conditioner formulated for weak, damaged hair.  It’s a great way to to mositurise your hair especially in the autumn and winter periods.  The SMART Pro-Vitamin formula features micro-nourishers that moisturise, help seal cuticles and repair damage from root to tip, as well as active ingredient histidine to help repair damage for moisturised hair that’s softer and shinier.  I am delighted with how smooth and silky my hair is feeling after using this.



Defensil Rescue Serum

Beauty Essentials for Fall

Defensil Rescue Serum contains a natural plant steroid.  It was developed by scientists in Switzerland for those suffering from very dry and itchy skin.  I have been using it on patches of dry skin on my upper arms and it has worked really well.  Defensil is free from parabens, perfumes, SLS and MI and is made from naturally active ingredients that have been developed for use on highly sensitive, itchy and dry skin.


Absolute Collagen Daily Collagen Supplements.

Beauty Essentials for Fall


Absolute Collagen is what is referred to as a drinkable skincare.  It has been designed to help fight against the visible signs of ageing, supports skin, nails, hair and joints.

Each wee sachet contains 8g of high grade marine collagen, infused with Vitamin C from citric acid and sweetened with sucralose. For those who are intolerant, it is free from gluten, dairy and lactose.  There is plenty of research to show that fish collagen in liquid form can be absorbed at a higher level than other forms of collagen.  You can take these direct from the sachet or mix it with a drink.  It’s not an unpleasant taste, more like a thicker honey.


Rock & Ruddle Zebra Hairbrush

hair essentials for autumn


Wow, what a great hairbrush.  Rock and Ruddle hairbrushes have an amazing array of bristles which gently brush your hair because the bristles are natural with tiny scales to help distribute the natural oils in every strand of your hair.  Honestly I can notice a huge difference in my hair, leaving it shiner already!



I’d love to know what’s on your list of beauty essentials this autumn/winter?

    I have just been given a pressie from Prince Edward Island Canada it’s called “” Island Potato Hand and Body Cream” and says it’s made from potato juice, a natural moisturizer for thirsty skin…This will be a really interesting product to try as I had not heard of it before and will certainly help with the Autumn gardening.

    At this time of year a good eye mist is essential to stop my eyes becoming irritated and red from the bitter winds. It’s a great look for Halloween but I prefer to look like someone wide awake and fresh than one of the walking dead – even if sometimes I feel like one? 😉 Wilko Eyelid Spray does a good job at a relatively good price.
