Now that we’re in autumn and the weather is starting to cool, get ready to start seeing the hydration levels in your skin slip. Not just in your face, but your body, too. What you need is a new team of body care essentials - and perhaps a balm or two.
These just-launched Australian beauty products are made for autumn so stock up for the season ahead.
Best for solving your dry skin woes
OUR PICK: MV Skintherapy MultiBalm
Balms may not have been on your radar during summer, but now that it’s getting cooler, it’s time to reconsider their extra nourishing formulas and indulgently rich textures. And this one from MV Skintherapy is an all-rounder that your skin will lap up. It’s buttery, ultra-hydrating and is packed with anti-inflammatory omegas, antioxidants, healing phytonutrients, and powerful plant compounds that help intensely repair, soothe, soften, and heal any signs of dryness.
Best for an eco-friendly scrub
Some types of exfoliating beads can be harsh on the skin (not to mention bad for the environment since they don’t break down and end up polluting our oceans) but the jojoba beans found in this body scrub gently polish and are all natural. That’s not their only eco-friendly claim - they complete the lifecycle of The Jojoba Company’s jojoba beans so they now have zero waste from bean to bottle. Simply add any body oil of your choice to the beans and you’ve got yourself a nourishing body exfoliator and smoother, refined skin from head to toe.
Best for a clean clean
The perfect pair to your new environmentally-friendly body scrub is a no-nasties body wash, like this newbie from Frank Body. The hydrating soap-free formula is made with clean ingredients (and by clean, we mean natural and safe synthetics, not squeaky clean - although they tick the box for that, too) and has a heavenly milk and honey scent to top it all off.
Best for beautiful eyes
OUR PICK: Esmi Eye Delight Reflection Eye Balm
We could all do a better job of taking care of our eyes. They’re delicate areas and we generally don’t pay them enough attention. But this moisturising eye balm will have you gladly smoothing this on day and night. Intended to be applied over an eye serum, this balm works like a moisturising barrier to trap in all your serum’s goodness along with providing its own hydrating properties for bright and youthful eyes.
Best for an indulgent time out
OUR PICK: Salt by Hendrix Dream Body Oil
You can’t beat a hot bath on a cool autumn’s evening. Salt by Hendrix’s new body oil makes for a great addition to your self-care soak. It will leave you feeling relaxed and your skin soft and pampered. Of course, you can also use it as a rich replacement for your summer body moisturiser.
Best for keeping your summer glow glowing
OUR PICK: Bali Body Clear Self Tanning Water
Not ready to say goodbye to your summer glow? Cult Australian self-tanning brand Bali Body has done it again, this time releasing a clear water-based tanning water that delivers a flawless light to medium tan that's perfect for the change in season. It also nourishes your skin with its 100% natural DHA and environmentally friendly ingredients and is a good choice for senstive skin types.
