Protect your skin this Autumn with He-Shi

Protect your skin this Autumn with He-Shi

As the dark mornings and even darker nights bring the Autumn / Winter chill and the work dos, Christmas markets and nights out start to pile up it’s important to remember to protect your skin.

Your skin tends to suffer in the winter with cold air hitting your face the second you go outside and then you’re struck by the overcompensating heating when you get indoors and this can be a bit much for your skin to handle. You can find your skin starts to feel dull, dry, itchy and irritated and your tan doesn’t glow as much as you’d like it to.
So follow our tips for beautiful skin this Autumn and be ready to step out looking like a bronzed goddess no matter the weather!

1. Exfoliate
By getting rid of the dry skin on top, you help new moisture-rich cells move to the surface, says Marie Claire.

Our Exfoliating Bodywash is a luxurious face and body exfoliator containing fruit AHAs and scrub-particles to gently remove dead skin cells whilst providing a skin polishing action to smooth the skin, leaving you feeling smooth, cleansed & moisturised with a gorgeous strawberry fragrance. Try to exfoliate at least twice a week to maintain luminosity.

Exfoliating Bodywash2. Tan
Selecting the right tan for you is key and at He-Shi all our tans are made with 100% natural DHA. Apprentice winner Dr Leah Totten recommends our range as it is pH balanced and paraben free. Not only that but all our tans are suitable for face & body and contain Pentavitin and Isopentyldiol, added primarily for moisture retention within the skin, as well as to ensure results lasting up to 10 days. Most importantly in the colder months these ingredients also protect dry skin against symptoms such as brittleness, roughness, unevenness and itching. Our highly moisturising Face & Body Gel is ideal for dry skin and achieving an instant golden tan with its smooth formulation. Use a mitt whilst tanning and ensure to moisturise only your driest areas first (e.g. palms of your hands, elbows, knees and ankles) to prevent tan build up.

He-Shi Range3. Moisturize
Finally don’t forget to moisturise frequently to combat dryness, protect your skin and lengthen the amount of time you get out of your tan.
Our subtly scented luxurious Soufflé Moisturiser is just the ticket for keeping your skin soft, smooth and protected. He-Shi Soufflé Moisturiser contains moisture lock technology, Aloe Vera, Panthenol and Vitamin E, to rehydrate your skin and prolong your flawless He-Shi tan for longer.

(1) It is important to wax 48 hours or shave 24 hours before tanning.
(2) Exfoliate using a gentle scrub; He-Shi Exfoliator uses fruit AHAs and perfectly circular particles to gently remove dead skin cells whilst micro-dermabrasion crystals smooth the skin in preparation for tanning. Using this with the He-Shi Exfoliating Gloves will leave your skin feeling softer and smoother.
(3) Make sure your underarms are deodorant free and avoid using any oil based products, as they can leave traces on the skin that can cause streaking.
(4) Apply moisturiser sparingly to the feet, back of the heel, elbows, cuticles and hands only. He-Shi Soufflé Moisturiser is perfect for targeting those naturally drier areas prior to tan application.
(5) Wear a mitt, it reduces the margin of error as you apply the tan. He-Shi Tanning Mitt is an ultra-smooth glove mitt for perfect self-tan application. The lotion proof barrier helps to ensure your hands remain stain free.
(6) Consider streaks when you are applying and make sure your body is covered all over with self tan and you haven’t left any white marks or streaks. He-Shi’s ‘see where it goes formula’ guarantees a streak free, perfect finish every time!
(7) Wear dark, loose clothing once you have finished your application or go to bed, and wash off the colour guide the following morning (or 6/8 hours after application).
(8) Moisturise the tan to lock in hydration and help your tan to fade naturally.
(9) Exfoliate 3 days after application, this will remove any dead skin cells and help the tan fade off evenly.
(10) When showering or bathing pat skin dry with your towel, rigorous rubbing this will scrub off the tan.
