Tip of the Month:

The end of summer means its time to switch up your Eminence Organics skin care routine to autumn.The change in seasons can leave skin feeling dull, dry and dehydrated, so keeping your skin refreshed and replenished is the key to extending your summer glow throughout the autumn season.

To ease the transition from summer to autumn, we’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing your skin care essentials. Here are our recommendations for your autumn skin care routine, chosen from a selection of Eminence Organic Skin Care products hand-picked to revive and replenish your skin all season long.  

Wash away impurities, slough off surface debris and tighten your skins appearance with Eminence Organics Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser. This multi-action exfoliating cleanser is infused with natural fruit extracts to gently remove dead skin cells and fragrant monoi to deeply hydrate. Natural Retinol Alternative combines with Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells to tighten and lift for a firmer, more youthful-looking complexion.

Revitalise and detoxify for a natural glow with Eminence Organics Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment. This lightweight gel cream treatment detoxifies and renews skin with the help of melt-in jojoba oil beads and nutrient rich microgreens for a dewy, radiant complexion.  Wear overnight to help prevent water loss or wear during the day as a defense against environmental stressors.

Energise your complexion with Redcurrant Mattifying Mist. This award winning toner features Eminence Organic Skin Cares exclusive Youth Shield Antioxidant Complex to hydrate, invigorate and promote the look of elasticity. Skin appears mattified, refreshed and perfectly radiant.

Treat your skin to this Eminence Organics layering trio. Layer Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, Marine Flower Peptide Serum and Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil to target the visible signs of ageing.

Tip of the Month:

Protect Skin as The Cooler Weather Begins

As we head towards autumn and winter, the weather begins to cool and our skin becomes more susceptible to dryness. Harsh winds and cold temperatures are not the only things you need to be aware of. Putting on the heating so you’re nice and cosy isn’t great for your skin either. If you’re searching for ways to protect skin in the winter months, here are a few effective tips for you to try.


Your skin needs moisture all year round, especially in the cooler weather. By hydrating your complexion and body with a nourishing moisturising you’ll soften and smooth your skin, locking in moisture to prevent dehydration. Even if you have oily skin, you need to use a daily moisturiser.

Avoid hot water

Instead of showering or bathing in very hot water, use warm water instead. Very hot water can dehydrate your skin as it removes the natural oils. Ensure you moisturise after bathing as this will help to lock in moisture.

Don’t forget your hands

Your hands can become very dry and cracked in cold weather so wear gloves to protect them. Furthermore, try to wear gloves when participating in chores around the house as this will prevent the skin on your hands from becoming dry and damaged. Using a hydrating hand cream throughout the day will keep your hands soft and smooth.

Ditch makeup wipes

Cleansing wipes tend to contain alcohol which strips the skin of its natural oils, promoting dryness. Instead, use a creamy cleanser or a natural cleanser like coconut oil to replenish moisture and soothe your complexion.


Exfoliating your skin, especially your lips this will remove dead skin cells, alleviate cracking and help to promote luminosity. After exfoliation, apply a moisturiser or hydrating balm to soften.

Fall in love with Autumn

There’s no denying that the temperature has dropped and Autumn is clearly here to stay. Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love seeing the leaves turn colour and pulling out my favourite cozy sweaters and boots. The Autumn season, although picturesque, can play some nasty tricks on your skin with its winds and chilly weather. The good thing about Autumn is the abundance of pumpkins which is the perfect ingredient of the season to reveal glowing new skin. This is why we are featuring everything pumpkin for our “Trick or Treatment” this month.
