Combat dehydration 

Unless you’re headed for sunnier climes, long gone are the days of balmy summer evenings. Outside, brisk walks lead to wind chap and inside, central heating circulates dry, warm air, both of which dehydrate your skin. In order to restore lost moisture, ensure that you’re still maintaining your daily water intake as well as replenishing from the outside in, in the form of skincare. Our Spa Manager recommends including a serum as part of your daily skincare routine as well as your usual cleanser and moisturiser – her favourite is ESPA’s Optimal Skin Pro Serum. Still in need of an intensive moisture hit? Invest in one of our facials…

Boost your immunity

Parents will already be all too aware of the plight of winter lurgies – colds, flu and bugs. Aside from the obvious – reducing the spread through tip-top hygiene – boost your own immunity as best you can. During a recent event with Nutritionist, Emma Bardwell, we were introduced to Bare Biology. Their daily capsules are filled with all the good stuff – Omega 3, Vitamin D, Vitamin C and collagen. For the best results, combine with a diet rich in anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids as well as trying your best to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.

Keep up the SPF

With temperatures plummeting, you might be inclined to pack away the SPF until next summer. For the sake of your skin – don’t!! Even in autumn and winter, harmful UV light can still stress your skin’s moisture barrier, which is vital for maintaining skin health and hydration. Our team recommend Guinot Sun Logic Age Sun, which comes in SPF 30, 50 or 50+, followed by Optimal Skin Pro-Moisturiser SPF 30 from ESPA.

Move for your mental health

Keeping active is a proven way to boost your serotonin. So, before you head home to hibernate, get some movement into your daily routine. If you don’t feel motivated to workout alone, why not try a group class? For spa members and guests, we have a range of classes to choose from. Think pilates, mindful yoga and even waterfit.

Schedule self-care

During the warmer months, we tend to fill our diaries with exciting events. Holidays, days out, social occasions and so on. Just because the seasons have shifted, try not to become complacent when it comes to scheduling self-care. It could be a weekend away, an indulgent spa treatment or even something as simple as a walk in a new spot.
