WIN a skincare routine from Fundamentals Skincare

Fundamentals skincare competition

Sunday, Mar 31

April comes with a whole lot of things – a new season being one of them. The cooler season is often the reason for dryer skin and chapped, dry lips, which is why we need to adapt our skin routine to increase hydration. In autumn, humidity drops, causing the cold air to pull moisture from your skin and therefore, Fundamentals Skincare offers some valuable solutions.

One of the worst things of changing seasons is chapped lips. And, while we can easily pop into the shop for an everyday lip balm, Fundamentals Skincare’s Natasha Davel says: “The best way to prevent chapped lips is to target the causes by keeping your body and environment hydrated whenever possible.” She adds that when you want to treat existing dryness and prevent more moisture loss, you will need effective lip treatments and that not all lip hydrators are created equal, so you’ll need to choose wisely.

Choose a lip balm that fits your needs (in addition to hydration), whether it’s for sun protection or to prevent hyperpigmentation. Then, keep your lips hydrated by using it proactively on a daily basis. Apply it under your lipstick to keep them hydrated and use a lip scrub once or twice per week. This will assist in removing dead skin cells and build up on your lips. The result: Soft, smooth, bright lips for autumn! Also, if your lips are prone to dryness, consider using a lip mask, which locks in moisture and allow your lips to heal.

Davel says: “Use a lip mask twice a week to gently scrub dead skin cells away and replenish moisture and religiously apply your lip balm. Some key ingredients to look out for are Squalane, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil.”

To help you get into your new skincare routine, I’ve partnered with Fundamentals Skincare to offer one lucky reader a skincare kit to kick autumn off with. The kit, valued at R1480, will include:
