Every time the season changes it is important to take time to assess our skin care routine so that our skin can adapt easily to new environmental conditions. 

It is also important not to take a 'set and forget' approach when it comes to skin care. Taking some time now in autumn to nurture your skin will ensure you're well prepared long before dry winter winds and rain arrive. 

In order to help you achieve your best ever autumn skin, we spoke with Justine Wilcox, Spa Manager at award-winning Vie Spa Bunker Bay who has put together their ultimate top 5 skin care tips for autumn.


After a long Australian summer, we often find that our skin is crying out for some TLC. And that means moisture! If your skin is especially thirsty at this time of year, we recommend the iKou Phyto Antioxidant Day Crème. With age defying benefits, the Phyto daily moisturiser will help to boost skin tone and clarity with all the benefits to protect your skin all day long


While you may not feel the sun quite as intensely during cloudy autumn days, your skin can still be damaged.

The Vie Spa team are in love with the sunscreens from We Are Feel Good Inc because they are completely free of nasties and great for sensitive skin.

When it comes to sunscreens you really want to be sure about the ingredients used. We Are Feel Good Inc’s sunscreens are Australian made and owned and are preservative, oxybenzone, paba and paraben free so you can feel good about using them. Even better, the products are gluten free and never tested on animals! What’s not to love?

Their Sticky Zinc Light and Medium Tints are perfect for year round protection as they can be used as a foundation, with the added skin protection from damaging UV rays.


Given your peepers are the window to your soul, you’ll want to make sure that they are hydrated, soothed and shining brightly for a more youthful look.

To keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay, make sure you’re nurturing this delicate area of the skin in the best way possible by adding an eye serum to your regime. The skin surrounding our eyes also has different needs to the rest of the face, so make sure you’re using a product that is designed for the eye area.

iKOU Ceramide + Firming Eye Serum is a great choice for all ages. It works to reduce dark circles, fluid retention caused by oedema and smooth fine lines.

For mature skin, our team recommend iKOU’s Peptides Multi-Action Serum, packed with high performing anti-ageing, multi-action ingredients.

Extra tip: with eye creams and serums you always want to apply onto freshly cleansed skin, from under your eye area and out to the cheekbone.


Summer’s radiance might have faded, but that doesn’t mean your skin has to look dull too. Bring back that inner glow with the help of high performance Vitamin C that paired up with other nurturing ingredients for quick results.

Rejuvenating Nutrient + Age Defying Night Crème is a great booster to add to your skin care routine. With an advanced blend of antioxidant multi vitamins, this creame protects and repairs your skin. Perfect for hydrating skin, as well as age defying results.

But what about the rest of your body?

Vie Spa’s eternal favourite for sloughing away dry skin (and one of their #1 best-selling products!) is the iKOU Organic Body Buff. We’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do!


Booking in for a facial with an experienced therapist once a month will help ensure your skin stays in top shape throughout the year.

Vie Spa’s Hydrating Hyaluronic Collagen Facial ($175) is a perfect way to quench thirsty skin. This deeply hydrating facial features age-defying Hyaluronic Collagen Booster, that works in harmony with your skin to restore its natural suppleness and boost elasticity. Then feel the cooling sensation of a hyaluronic infusion mask that nourishes your skin leaving you with a refreshed, dewy complexion that glows from within.

Alternatively, aim to have a facial ‘check in’ at the start of every season to correct any issues that have popped up and adjust your skin care routine with expert advice from a therapist.
