Your Ultimate Guide to Autumn Skincare

As the air turns crisp, it’s time to transition your skincare routine to match the autumn season. With the cooler temperatures and lower humidity, your skin requires a different kind of TLC. In this guide, we’ll explore the essential steps for autumn skincare with Dr Garry Cussell and our senior clinicians – and delve into some of the best cosmetic treatments to keep your skin radiant and healthy.

Best Cosmetic Treatments for Autumn:

Chemical Peels

Autumn is the ideal time for medical-grade peels as they help address sun damage and pigmentation. These treatments remove dead skin cells, revealing a brighter, more even complexion. Our exclusive array of medical-grade facial peels ensures immediate, noticeable results, leaving your skin deeply hydrated, and rejuvenated, and promoting a more youthful complexion. Some peels we have available are as per the below:-

HydraFacial is particularly beneficial in autumn as it combines gentle exfoliation, deep cleansing, and hydrating serums to address seasonal skincare needs. As the weather transitions, HydraFacial’s ability to replenish moisture, repair sun damage, and prepare the skin for colder temperatures makes it an essential treatment. With its nourishing ingredients and ability to combat seasonal breakouts, HydraFacial ensures your skin stays radiant and ready for any autumn event.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation:

Laser treatments can target a variety of skin concerns, from wrinkles to sun damage. As the sun’s intensity decreases in autumn, it’s an optimal time to undergo laser procedures for skin renewal without the risk of increased sun sensitivity. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Deep Rejuvenation Laser Toning (also known as Laser Genesis) stimulates collagen growth to reduce the appearance of pores and textural imperfections.

Fraxel Laser

Autumn serves as an ideal season for undergoing Fraxel laser rejuvenation, a transformative and non-surgical procedure renowned for its efficacy in combating signs of ageing. As the summer sun wanes and cooler temperatures prevail, the reduced intensity of sunlight becomes advantageous for post-treatment recovery. Fraxel laser penetrates the skin with microscopic columns of laser energy, initiating a cellular renewal process that prompts the body to replace damaged skin tissue with fresh collagen. The autumnal environment, characterised by milder weather and less intense UV radiation, minimises the potential for sun exposure that could compromise the healing process. This makes it an opportune time to address fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage, allowing individuals to unveil a revitalised and radiant complexion without major disruptions to their daily routines. Embracing Fraxel laser during autumn ensures a path to healthier, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Autumn Skincare Essentials:

It’s important to emphasise that the efficacy of these skincare treatments lies not only in their initial application but also in consistent maintenance. Achieving a radiant complexion requires diligent care, incorporating potent skincare ingredients that are backed by proven effectiveness

  1. Hydration is Key

    Autumn weather can be harsh on your skin, leading to dehydration. Switch to a richer moisturizer that provides extra hydration and creates a protective barrier against the elements. The perfect product that is a deeply nourishing moisturiser which intensely hydrates thirsty, dehydrated skin and reverses past damage is the Rich Repair Moisturiser from Rejuvaus – A barrier-repairing blend of natural hydrators, antioxidants and collagen peptides replenishes and retains moisture for dewy, radiant, youthful skin.

  2. Gentle Exfoliation

    Combat the dry, flaky skin that often accompanies autumn by incorporating gentle exfoliation into your routine. Opt for the Deep Exfoliating AHA Cleanser, which deep cleanses trapped oil, pollution, and make-up (including eye make-up) and exfoliates dead skin cells in one single cleanse.

  3. Sunscreen, always

    Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you can skimp on sunscreen. UV rays are still present and are the main cause of ageing and pigmentation, and protecting your skin is crucial. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30- 50 and apply it daily, even on cloudy days. Only the physical/mineral sunblocks containing at least 20% natural Zinc and TiO2 can give all day SPF protection without reapplying every 2 hours.

  4. Serums for Nourishment

    Introduce serums enriched with vitamins and antioxidants to nourish your skin. Vitamin C and B can help protect against environmental damage, while peptides support collagen production, keeping your skin firm and youthful. The Bright & Correct Niacinamide Serum has up to ten time more active ingredients than other premium skincare, which helps to regulate & reduce pigment, restoring an even skin tone. Ideal for sunspots, acne scarring, or pigmentation problems caused by hormonal fluctuations, stress, or pregnancy. Vitamin A is well known as being the most corrective of all the antioxidants, but is very poorly tolerated unless used in the form of encapsulated ‘retinaldehyde’, should be used twice daily. The Repair & Refine ABC Serum has (among the other 32 additional ingredients}, a 1% concentration of encapsulated, slow-release Retinaldehyde.

  5. Lip Care

    Don’t forget your lips! Invest in a hydrating lip balm to prevent chapping and keep your lips soft and kissable all season long. All the Rejuvaus serums and creams are safe and effective and can be used on both lips and the sensitive eyelids.


As you bid farewell to summer and welcome the autumn breeze, adapting your skincare routine is essential for maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion. By incorporating the right products and considering cosmetic treatments tailored to the season, you can ensure that your skin stays luminous and beautiful all through the cooler months. So, embrace the change in weather, pamper your skin, and let your natural beauty shine!
