As Summer has come to an end, and Autumn has begun creeping in, our skin needs time to adjust.
Whilst Australia’s seasons aren’t as dramatic as countries in the Northern Hemisphere, we do still experience a shift in warm and cool weather (though the warm weather seems to be hanging around). This means our skin needs different products and treatments to keep it healthy.
After Summer, our skin is often dehydrated and may feel more oily as the humidity has trapped dead skin cells and bacteria on the surface of your skin.
It’s normal to experience breakouts and flare-ups in Summer as we tend to sweat more and produce more sebum which can clog your pores. If you have also spent a lot of time outdoors and in the sun, you may have some extra pigmentation or sun damage.
So whilst we aim to protect and cleanse the skin in Summer, as we move into the cooler months we focus on altering our skincare to opt for more hydrating and deeply moisturizing products.
For natural remedies, and basic skin health, you can ensure you are drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated, eating a balanced diet and avoiding foods that break you out, and take vitamins and supplements that promote healthy skin.
However, sometimes these things aren’t enough to keep your skin healthy, and it may need a little boost. We believe a specially curated skincare routine and regular facial treatments are essential in looking after your skin.
We recommend first booking in for a facial, where your skin therapist can analyze your skin and find out what it needs, as well as helping you find products that will support your unique skin needs.
If you are located in Victoria, we can offer a unique facial in Melbourne CBD with our team of qualified, high-level skin therapists.
Starting with facial treatments also means your skin can be deeply cleansed, extracting bacteria and dead skin cells, unclogging your pores and providing essential nutrients.
Try an extraction facial in Melbourne, at our luxury Wellness Spa and Clinic, where we can decongest your skin and use high-performance skincare to deeply cleanse your pores.
Using the incredible Elemis products, we can provide unique results that will continue to improve your skin health with each treatment.
Our most recommended facial treatments for the changing of seasons are our Elemis Facials:
This facial is our signature deep cleansing facial that leaves you with glowing skin. Using the Elemis products this facial harnesses prebiotics and antioxidants using highly effective resurfacing technology - the Elemis Biotec.
The Elemis products used are deeply hydrating, gentle for sensitive skin, and packed full of nutrient rich superfoods to nourish and protect your skin. They also help your skin to maintain a healthy balance.

Our Pro-Glow Smooth+ Facial is the equivalent of an intense HIIT workout for your skin. It uses ultrasonic peeling to exfoliate dead skin cells and smoothes the surface of your skin.

After your Pro-Glow facial or advanced skin therapy treatment, our qualified skin therapists ensure you have customized skincare products to continue to nourish your skin and cater to your individual skin issues.
However, we understand that not everyone has the time, or is able to visit us for a facial in Melbourne CBD at our spa and clinic, but still want skincare products that will help your skin in the changing of the seasons.
