Research has found that many of us decide to switch our skincare when the weather gets colder and our complexion needs change.
Are you looking for a calmer way to cleanse? Or what about a richer kind of moisturiser or a serum to protect against pollution? Well, we’ve uncovered some of the latest launches you might like try to supercharge your skin for the new season.
The Best New Season Skincare
Vichy Neovadiol Rose Platinum Night
New to the Neovadiol range for mature and menopausal skin is this rose-scented cream. It contains beeswax, shea butter, rose flower extract and nourishing minerals to restore radiance and infuse skin with moisture. And all while you snooze! It sinks in quickly leaving your complexion feeling soothed and sleepy. £30, nationwide
Neom Great Day Glow Skincare
The brand that combines wellbeing with wonderful skin benefits has created a range to combat that low mood we (and our skin) sometimes feel when the sun’s no longer shining. The Great Day Glow Skincare collection contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory turmeric root extract to bring out your skin’s natural glow, prickly pear extract, bursting with vitamins and oils that brighten and moisten the complexion and a blend of essential oils (including mandarin and peppermint) to enliven your spirit.

Age Defy+ by Cha Vøhtz
The super natural Age Defy+ range from Green People has had a makeover. Repackaged and renamed Age Defy+ by Cha Vøhtz – taking on the name of natural beauty icon Charlotte Vøhtz, founder of the company. Created especially for women aged over 35, the range targets uneven pigmentation and helps reduce cell breakdown. Packed full of powerful youth-boosting botanicals and plant extracts such as Hibiscus, Sea Holly, Pomegranate and Neroli, the range has a subtle scent and is free from nasties.

L’Occitane Cleansing Infusions
When it comes to taking off your make up, what type of cleansing character are you? Do you prefer the ritual to be a soothing and calming experience or is it the appeal of a fresh-feeling free-from-the-day complexion that you look forward to? Whatever the case the new L’Occitane ranges will have something to fit. There’s a Gel-to-Foam Cleanser infused with refreshing cucumber and blemish-busting thyme; an Oil-to-Milk infused with immortelle and calming calendula from the south of France, a soothing Cream-to-Foam enriched with organic fig and honey from Provence and loads more in the range your skin will love. From £15, uk.loccitane.com
Algenist AA Barrier Serum
Worried about the effects of smog, ozone and urban dust – aka pollution – on your skin? They produce free-radicals that are scientifically proven to accelerate the physical signs of ageing (it’s called Atmospheric Ageing). Step in this new serum, containing patented high-strength Alguronic Acid from algae which is said to fortify and strengthen the skin barrier, acting like a shield to outside aggressors. Antioxidants from apples and mushrooms are also included in the mix. In tests, 86% of subjects said skin appeared healthier after 10 days of use. £80 from Space NK and Feelunique.com
