Ahh Autumn, there's something exciting about the leaves falling on the ground and the layering of cosy jumpers and big coats isn't there? What's also exciting is a whole load of new skin and beauty trends come to light and in this months Blog Post, I thought I would compile a list of the latest trends you need to know about!
For each of the trends where I mention a product recommendation, I will post a link for you to be able to read more or purchase but please do email me if you have any questions at all relating to the blog - firstname.lastname@example.org
Make Up Trends..
Bold Lips - Always a popular one at this time of year but what I did want to highlight with this particular trend is that we should also be focusing on 'youthful lips' especially if we want to adopt the Bold Lip trend.
Lips are one area that often suffers as we age and especially at this time of year when the weather changes. Lips are also an area we tend to neglect but did you know you should exfoliate and mask your lips like you do your face?
Matis have a specific product that is gentle enough to be used on both the eye and lip area and will ensure your lips are smooth and hydrated after just one use.
Sensibiotic Peel is perfect to exfoliate the lip area - https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/sensibiotic-peel
Hyalu Lips https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/hyalu-lips is a volumising, lip plumping care that contains Hyaluronic Acid filling spheres that are able to restore volume to superficial layers of the epidermis to give a pluming effect. Beeswax gives it a balm texture and helps to moisturise and nourish lips, an essential product to achieve youthful lips that will look perfect with your choice of bold lipstick.
Eyes - Make-up trends for eyes this year consist of 90's smokey eye, disco diva and metallic glam (possibly not at the same time!) but this trend means we want to keep this area looking youthful and restful and a good eye product is essential for this. Matis have a wide range of eye products suitable for all of the concerns we see in our eyes such as: puffiness, darkness, loss of tone and wrinkles as well as offering gentle eye cleansers, you are guaranteed to find the right product for you. https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/eyes
Layering Products - you may already be experienced in laying your skincare day to day and I will link a previous Blog post I wrote about which order to layer products here, https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/post/which-order-to-apply-your-daily-skincare
but did you know you can add an additional treatment serum at this time of year to give your skin the extra boost it may need?
If layering serums, always make sure you start with the lightest consistency first unless you are using Matis' Signature Elixir Serum, Cell Expert. https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/cell-expert-serum
This serum will will protect the cellular DNA and used stem cell technology to increase self renewal and is always applied before another serum.
Face Oils - Face Oils are wonderful, especially at this time of the year because they really do provide protection and our skin needs all the protection it can get at this time of year. They they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out.
Matis have 2 award winning face oils, The Caviar Serum -https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/caviar-the-serum which is often described as liquid velvet and is full of proteins and minerals that help to repair cells as well as a firming ingredient which works on the fibre blast cells and function. Added avocado oil maintains the skins hydration levels and keeps the skin soft and supple.
Olea Science - https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/olea-science is another fantastic award winning product and provides essential nutrients to the skin and is perfect for mature skins as can reverse the signs of cellular ageing. This incredible face oil contains active ingredients such as Centernarian tree elixir which is also named the Greek, tree of youth. This oil changes the way the fibre blast cell works then, in turn relaunches the collagen synthesis and reverses the age of the fibre blasts to make more collagen and elastin. Added benefits of omega 3, 6 and 9 are perfect foods for the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid - We see this trend reappearing yet again this season and it's hardly surprising as it really is an incredible ingredient we all need to be using somewhere in our skin care routine but do you know what it is? Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. It helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated.
Matis uses high quality Hyaluronic acid and different weights of HA in their products that will act on different layers of the skin to give the most benefit.
Hyalu Essence - https://www.sarahjohnsonfacialist.com/product-page/hyalu-essence is one of my best selling products and is such an affordable way to get the HA onto your skin. In this particular product, it uses a higher molecular weight of HA for immediate surface smoothing.
