Now that the leaves are starting to change colors, it’s time to switch up your makeup routine and prepare your skin for cooler times. Here are some hints for staying fabulous this fall:
Condition Your Lips
Dry lips are one of the earliest signs of autumn, so start applying generous layers of lip balm before bed and when you wake up in the morning. Look for products containing natural waxes, butters and oils to better protect, nourish and repair damaged lips.
Change Your Sunscreen Strategy.
While you’re likely to be wearing long sleeves and pants, your face remains vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays, so invest in a daytime moisturizer that provides plenty of SPF.
Bring Back the Moisture
Speaking of moisturizing, staying beautiful in the dry autumn air may necessitate richer, more hydrating body lotions. If you’ve been using an astringent face wash to reduce shininess, fall may require a thicker cleansing oil that doesn’t dry out the skin as much.
Get Beautiful Skin from Within By Drinking Water
In addition to being essential to your overall health, drinking water throughout the day can prevent your skin from becoming dry and flaky.
Help Out Your Hands
Your hands work hard, so pamper them with a cream enriched with olive, jojoba oil or soothing marshmallow root to keep your fingertips from drying out this fall.
Experiment With Your Hair
Since fall is the season of change, why not test-drive a new hair color? You can debut a chocolate hue, or tone down your blonde to a golden honey. Without the constant abuse of the summer sun, your hair color will stay truer longer without fading or turning brassy. Dandruff is a common complaint during autumn, but there are over-the-counter anti-dandruff shampoos to keep your scalp hydrated.
Keep Wearing Your Sunglasses
Even though the temperature is gradually dropping, the sun is just as harmful to your skin as it was during the summer. Sunglasses are a must for all four seasons to protect your eyes from vision-damaging UV rays.
Update Your Color Palette
Now that you don’t have to worry about them melting off of your face, the time has come to dig out your heavier eye makeup and full-coverage foundation. To blend in with the cool crowd this fall, shop for warm, saturated shades of eye shadows such as mauves, espressos, greens, warm browns, deep purples, grays, golds and coppers.
Embrace Eyelash Extensions
Autumn is all about dramatic eyes, and eyelash extensions can help you achieve a surprisingly wide range of styles. Doll-like lashes, duos of cat-eyes and Twiggy eyes are all trending on the fall runways. Whether you prefer natural-looking or colored lash extensions, this simple procedure can enhance your ensemble in subtle or dramatic fashion.
