As you put away your swimsuits, tanks and flirty summer dresses, it’s also time to change out your beauty routine and the products you’ve been using. The weather is getting cooler by the day, so pull out your tall boots, booties, sweater vests and layers with lots of texture.
All the fun we had this summer has done a number on our skin, hair, nails and feet. Here are 6 ways to transform your fall beauty routine..
Hydrate Your Skin
Seasons change, and so does your skin. Depending on your age and where you live, begin by switching out your light warm weather moisturizer. Trade up to a richer, heavier moisturizer to guard against the drying fall and winter winds.
Look for one that targets those dark sun spots left over from overexposure to the sun, known as hyperpigmentation.
Remove the dead skin cells with a scrub to brighten and repair your summer face and body. This will induce natural oil production, so use it on your feet, elbows or anywhere that feels dry. Don’t forget your lips if they have become dry from the sun.
Put Retinol Back Into Your Routine
If you stowed away retinol for the summer months, it’s time to pull it back out. There is nothing better to smooth out those wrinkles and brighten your skin. This miracle vitamin A derivative will boost your collagen production and even out your complexion as it unclogs pores.
Fall Into A New Palate
It’s always fun to experiment with new makeup colors, and this fall is no exception. Hide those pink pastel lipsticks and polish and bring out the fall shades.
Fall 2017 is showcasing lots of shimmer and metallics. Bronzes and browns on the eyelids, along with dark jewel tone shimmer shadows. Try a dark brown eyeliner instead of your normal black.
Maybe it’s time you played with a darker shade of lipstick! There is nothing better than a berry shade or even a bright red in the autumn.
This year’s darker nail colors are spectacular, with all shades of mauve, grey, and espresso, and deep dusky roses, our favourite. Have fun with color!
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
Yes, even in the fall you should wear sunscreen. True, there is less skin exposed, but the UVA rays are just as strong as in the summer. Those are the nasty rays that cause damage and can lead to cancer.
Pay Attention To Your Skin
If your skin is suddenly developing pimples and breakouts, it is telling you something. Dryness and sensitivity are all signs of inflammation.
Maybe you want to start fresh with a wrinkle treatment or dermal filler.
