Our Top Tips For Staying Well This Autumn
Discover more about the indulgent skin balms, warming teas and winter blues beating supplements we'll be adding to our routine this Autumn.
We’ve settled into the autumn season here at Apothecary 27, enjoying the hot drinks and seasonal dishes served up in the Origins Café and thinking about the colder months ahead.
A shift in seasons means a shift in personal care. As we unpack the winter duvets, we need to consider updating our skincare regimes as well. The chillier temperatures can be very drying for unprotected skin. But the latest skincare range to land on the shelves will help combat winter skin woes: Guy Morgan Apothecary.
An organic skincare range based in London, Guy Morgan evokes traditional Victorian apothecary remedies with a modern environmental twist. The sleek glass bottles and jars complement the products in Apothecary 27, sharing our ethos of natural, high-quality, organic ingredients that are kind to the environment.
Products include the Flower of the 5 Wounds Sensitive range and the Dagger Rose range.
The Flower of the 5 Wounds range is designed for sensitive skin, with passionflower seed oil at its base. Passionflower seed oil is high in vitamin C and essential fatty acids to boost skin radiance. The facial balm, facial oil and hydrating facial masque are all free of essential oils.The Dagger Rose Cleanser is already a favourite – a water-activated, micro-foaming cleanser, it is creamy and nourishing with a mildly exfoliating texture from ground plant materials. Organic rosehip and chamomile extracts gently balance the skin, and jojoba oil protects against environmental stressors. The Dagger Rose range also features a facial treatment balm and a facial treatment oil.
We also have to think about our inner wellbeing in these cooler autumn months. The fleeting daylight causes many to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) – but we have an ideal remedy to help. Brain Feed 5-HTP is a supplement that boosts serotonin levels and can help regulate mood, appetite, sleep and anxiety. Take 1-2 tablets per day to combat stressors.
Enjoy autumn – collect conkers, gather leaves, build that first fire of the season. Embrace the change with a hot cup of tea featuring warming spices such as cinnamon and ginger. Pukka’s Three Cinnamon and Three Ginger teas are perfect after a foraging walk in the woods. And the Wild Apple & Cinnamon tea seems to be made just for autumn!
