Skin Care For Autumn

Seasons change and so does our skin care routines.

Transitioning your summer skin care routine to make it fit for autumn may seem like a chore but to keep your skin in top condition, no matter the weather, is something that needs to be done. We give you some easy tips and tricks on how to do this...

Exfoliate with an oil-based scrub. The summer sun may have left you skin feeling dry. Simply switch your scrubs to oil-based ones as these will exfoliate and hydrate you skin. 

Switch the lotions to creams. As it becomes cooler, the air also gets drier meaning your skin needs a thicker moisturiser. Creams provide a barrier to reduce water loss from the outer later of the skin but also provides hydration at the same time.

Protect your lips. Investing in a lip balm is a must - as no-one wants dry, cracked lips.

Goodbye soap. Soapy scrubs do feel and smell wonderful but can leave your skin rather dry. Switch to a soap-free hydrating cleanser. Say good-bye to those shower gels and ring out the creamy body wash.

Want to try our fabulous products?

Flawless skin... it's what we all want and to achieve it we need collagen. 

Collagen is responsible for the skin's elasticity and youthfulness, as we age our collagen levels decline resulting in wrinkles and imperfections.

Why not let Face Matters help? 

All of our products contain organic silicon to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin - this is what makes Face Matters brilliant!

And not only does your face matter, your opinion does too.

That's why we are looking for 100 ladies to take part in our Skin Trials as we want to hear what you think of our brand new products and our brand new look! 

If you want to test our terrific new skincare regime then send us a message on Facebook or Twitter, or an email to, with your name, age, location and the reason as to why you want to take part.

You will then receive a confirmation email and be sent a goody box of our new products and information to guide you through the process.

Dry skin - go away!

Everyone wants to have perfect skin - but this can be quite hard especially when your skin is quite dry!

If you find your skin is dry then you simply need to add moisture back into it. Moisturising your skin is what you need to do - finding a moisturiser that suits your skin type is the first step, even if you have oily skin just find one that is oil free. Applying a thin layer of moisturiser every day will help your skin to regain all those oils lost and leave your skin smooth and soft.

When you go for a shower or a dip in the swimming pool moisturising afterwards is a must! The water washes away the skin's natural oils and by applying a cream/oil will help prevent the skin from chapping! 

So remember, to keep your skin looking beautiful, smooth and soft simply moisturise!

Problematic Pores!

Having open pores isn't great for your skin. They will eventually become clogged with dirt, dead skin cells, oil and make up - all causing spots and even making your skin look uneven! The best way to clear up those pores at home is a steam facial!

Simply remove all your make-up and cleanse your face as you usually would, this will start to remove all the dirt and make-up. Then gently exfoliate your skin concentrating on those areas that are more greasy, usually around the T-zone area.
Now we move onto the steam facial. Run hot water (or boil a kettle) into a bowl, when you see/feel the steam simply hover your head over the bowl and place a towel over your head (by covering you head with a towel this will trap the steam so it goes directly to your face and neck. Stay like this for 2-3 minutes and the pores will open which will remove all the oils and dirt which have been blocking them. Finally give your face a quick rinse with cold water to close your pores, that way no more dirt can get stuck in them.

If this seems a bit of a task then why not do the steam facial whilst in the shower. Just make sure the water is hot enough so there is steam and stay in there for a good 5 minutes for this to work effectively!

Do this at least once a week and you will see a vast improvement in your skin. It's time to say goodbye to those problematic pores.
