Waarom ‘maskeren’ een must is tijdens het najaar

Why 'masking' is a must during the fall

Fresh air, thick sweaters, dark evenings... That wonderful late summer weather is now really over. And even though I like long evenings with candlelight and lots of fun, I always have to get used to the cold. Did you know that your skin also has to adapt considerably? The cool temperatures demand quite a bit from your skin and it shows.

Give your face the care it needs

Cold air means a greater chance of dry spots: a typical 'autumn ailment' and the signal that your face is begging for extra moisture. With extreme dehydration, your skin can even start to crack, think of those painful chapped lips. Your skin can also show small cracks in other places on your body, which increases the risk of inflammation. So it's high time to tackle dry spots. Make it a point to moisturize your skin extra - in addition to your usual care. How do you do that? By treating your skin to a nourishing mask every week. A face mask is more than a moment for yourself. It's the perfect way to give your skin a big boost. Our Boost of Indulgence mask is packed with natural concentrates that help restore the moisture balance of your face. Exactly what your skin needs right now.

PS: When you purchase our Boost of Indulgence mask, you will receive a free SELF mask brush from us this month*! This way you can apply the moisturizing cream even more easily and evenly to your face.

• Macadamia: rich in vitamin B. It helps maintain the moisture balance of your skin and reduces redness.
• And so much more...

Even more care tips for autumn:

• Of course, it's not just your face that benefits from extra hydration. Don't forget to moisturize your body after showering. Our Fine Delicate Body Butter has an intensely hydrating and restorative effect. For soft and healthy skin.

• During the cold months of the year, your skin is more sensitive than usual. So be extra careful with what you put on your skin. Stay away from harsh care products. Harsh peels and creams full of chemicals put even more pressure on your sensitive skin. At SELF we go for 100% natural and vegan. That means: no chemical colors and fragrances, no parabens, no chemical ingredients. Our products contain only the most nourishing ingredients from mother nature. Pure concentrate that you can apply to your skin with confidence.

• The cold can put some pressure on your blood circulation. Treat yourself to a facial massage every now and then to stimulate blood circulation and improve your complexion.

• Avoid showers that are too hot. Large temperature differences exhaust your skin even more. Water at body temperature is ideal.
