5 ideas for skin care in autumn

5 ideas for skin care in autumn 1200 900 Martini Spa

The challenges of autumn

Sun creams, tanning, melatonin to stimulate. With the arrival of autumn, all this leaves room for new needs for your skin care. For example, cold-induced vasoconstriction results in less abundant blood circulation, with a drop in the supply of nutrients to the skin. Not considering the frequent risk of dry skin, related to the reduction in the activity of the sebaceous glands.
And do you have the right tools to win the challenge against dryness, itching and micro-lesions of the skin while waiting for next spring? Find out with MartiniSPA ideas.

1 – Keyword: scrub

Every skin’s primary need in autumn is proper exfoliation. Choose the best scrub to remove dead skin cells, preparing you as best as possible for any treatment. Considering sunspots, the greatest issue following summer: only an ideal scrub can minimise them.

2 – Don’t underestimate hydration

Do you want radiant skin even in the last months of the year? Hydrate it by drinking about 2 litres of water a day. Other valid alternatives to supplement the moisturising supply are infusions, teas or ad hoc herbal teas. Alcohol and caffeine are strictly not recommended – they only have dehydrating effects.

3 – Shower vs bath

Experts recommend a shower over a bath. Thanks to less time in contact with water, the skin is not excessively degreased with a shower. But pay attention to the temperature: prolonged exposure to hot water eliminates the protective film on the skin. Better opt for medium-short, warm temperature showers.

4 – External factors

If the greatest risks in summer for your skin are due to uncontrolled exposure to sunlight, in autumn you have new antagonists: cold, wind, rain and dry air in heated rooms. A perfect beauty routine must therefore entail creams and protection products, as well as a healthy and energising diet for your skin.

5 – It remains green even in autumn

Once again, the most effective solution for every need is inspired by nature. To give you sublime skin even in autumn, MartiniSPA has in fact created the exclusive Massage Natural line. Enjoy an unmissable SPA in your home, with plant-based materials, such as a loofah and cotton. Every product in the collection is latex-free, dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. What are you waiting for? Change your autumn right away!

7 tips on how to clean the sponge

7 tips on how to clean the sponge 1200 900 Martini Spa

Wiping out germs

Now we all know that used sponges can potentially harbour high concentrations of germs and bacteria: the presence of moisture and food residues contributes to their proliferation.
That is why it is essential to change them frequently kitchen sponges – about every fortnight – and use a sponge just for washing dishes. Or, again, one cannot do without periodic sanitisation. So discover MartiniSPA’s exclusive 7 tips on how to clean the sponge you use every day.

1 – Microwave oven

A quick and easy method. Simply clean the sponge and immerse it in a bowl of cold water. You then place the bowl with the sponge in the microwave, turning it on to maximum power for at least 4 minutes. Once left to cool, the sponge is completely sterilised.

2 – Washing machine or dishwasher

There are also people who prefer the convenience of running the sponge through a washing machine or dishwasher cycle and then letting it dry in the sunlight. If you choose the washing machine, it is recommended to set the temperature above 60°C.

3 – Steam

Staying on the subject of temperature, one can also opt for sanitising with steam at 100°C. The only caveat is to deliver steam at a short distance from the sponge, for at least 30 seconds on each side. In this way, only 0.1% of germs, parasites or viruses survive the operation.

4 – Natural disinfectants

Vinegar, salt, lemon and baking soda can come in handy if you choose a more natural way. In addition to having disinfectant and descaling properties, they remove odours from the sponge. It is enough to soak it for two hours in boiling water with vinegar and a few drops of lemon juice – or possibly fine salt.

5 – Hydrogen peroxide or degreaser

Those with a dispenser can also rely on a mix of sterilised water – 30% – and hydrogen peroxide – 70%. After half an hour in this liquid, any sponge will say goodbye to bacteria.

6 – Bleach

90% hot water and 10% bleach: here is a variation of the previous suggestion. After soaking for about 30 minutes, sponges and pads are disinfected and sterilised. After soaking, it is recommended to rinse the sponges thoroughly – preferably with warm water.

7 – Choose Hygiene+ by MartiniSPA

Wondering how best to clean the sponge is legitimate. But of course what also makes the difference is choosing the best sponge for classic cleaning tasks. With Hygiene+ sponges you can enjoy perfect antibacterial action and guaranteed hygiene over time. The innovative Hygiene+ line bases its effectiveness on the joint action of silver ions, copper, thiabendazole and zinc pyrithione – elements that inhibit the proliferation of bacteria. Be surprised by the tech soul of MartiniSPA.

Dry skin after winter: how to help it

Dry skin after winter: how to help it 1920 700 Martini Spa

The long-awaited spring has finally arrived!
As the temperatures rise, we need to start lightening our skin, not only by the heavy sweaters, but also by the cosmetics that have protected us from the cold in winter.
Here’s an easy spring beauty routine !

1. Exfoliates
After the cold of winter, the skin appears dry and thickened: it must be renewed by performing the right exfoliation ritual. Once or twice a week, replace the normal bath and face cleansing sponge with an exfoliating sponge or a Martini scrub sponge.

2. Deep cleanse

Choose specific cleansers for facial skin such as micellar water which, with its innovative formula, attracts all impurities leaving the skin completely purified. The goal is to make our skin breathe and oxygenate.

3. Hydrate your skin

Do not abandon the good habit of putting a cream in the evening, before going to sleep: in this moodo you guarantee the skin all the principles it needs to renew itself.
With increasing temperatures, the pores of the skin open, giving the skin that annoying shiny and sweaty effect: choose a cream with a light texture and which is easily absorbed.

4. Take care of your hands and feet

After months covered under closed gloves and shoes, our hands and feet also emerge from hibernation.
How to cuddle them?
1. Exfoliation : use exfoliating sponges and pumice stones maybe after immersing for a few minutes in warm water and Marseille soap.
2. Hydration : in the morning and in the evening, apply a body cream or even a foot cream generously in order to nourish the skin, making it soft and well-groomed.

Good spring!
