Autumn represents the perfect time to recover from previous environmental aggressions and emerge restored and refreshed. With summer over, elements like the change in climate can often cause your skin to dry out. A drop-in humidity can also strip the skin of its natural moisture barrier leaving it feeling dull and lifeless. Not to worry Dr Philippa McCaffery, offers advice on how to combat these autumn skin issues and prep the skin for harsher climates Find out what ingredients help to promote a younger looking skin. As we age, and our skin cell function slows down, collagen production declines and the even colour of our skin change due to sun exposure and all the other environmental and hormonal issues. The ingredients I recommend for younger looking skin this Autumn are Vitamin A (retinol, retin A, tretinoin) and Vitamin C.
