Start nourishing your skin from within by taking omega-rich flaxseed oil. The omega-3 fatty acids have skin-soothing properties and do wonders for sufferers of eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. The oil will also help breathe life back into lacklustre locks and strengthen dry and brittle nails. Go Healthy Go Flaxeed Oil, $20 for 90 caps.
Always remember to moisturise. Women prone to oiliness often use products that end up stripping their skin of natural oils, in an attempt to keep shine under control. This in turn can lead to an over-production of sebum as your glands have to produce even more oil to compensate. Natural oils such as rosehip, jojoba and almond are great for people with oiler skin as they are easily absorbed, help maintain moisture levels and minimise breakouts. For those with dry and combination skins, the oil will help balance you out and provide a much-needed boost of antioxidants. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, $69.
Say goodbye to dry skin with a weekly exfoliation. Dull, rough skin is a common side-effect of cooler weather and using a light, natural exfoliant once a week will help bring new, softer layers of skin to the surface. Dr LeWinn's Facial Polishing Gel Gentle Exfoliant, $46.
Invest in a face mask suited to your skin type and commit to using it once a week (after your exfoliation). Talk to a beauty therapist and work out what it is that’s troubling you most – it could be excess oil, a lack of hydration, combination skin or sensitivity. Either way, make sure you look to target those trouble spots for best results. Abeeco Bee Venom Mask, $90.
Get into a regular night time routine. While you’re sleeping, your skin goes into repair mode, allowing skin cell regeneration at almost double the rate it works during the day. Products with active ingredients such as anti-aging creams and serums with vitamin C work best at night too, as your skin is able to absorb the ingredients easier without exposure to sunlight or competition with your makeup and sunscreen. Tip: Get to bed by 11pm as this is the time when your cell regeneration starts to peak. Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser, $58.
