Transitioning into Fall Beauty

Now that summertime is over, it’s time for us to switch gears and start looking ahead towards the coming months of Fall and Winter. A change in climate also means a change in our daily beauty routine. Here are some of my favorite tips!

 

Preventing flaky, dry skin.

Most of us associate wearing SPF with summertime or being under direct sunlight when in fact, the sun is always out, even when it’s barely visible behind the clouds. Wearing SPF when leaving the house is an absolute must! Sunscreen prevents free radical damage to the skin and can delay the aging process along with a healthy diet free of simple carbs, sugar, excess salt, and dairy. Along with combatting dry skin, I usually take an Omega-3 supplement which boosts hydration. If you’re not the kind of person to be militant about taking supplements, I recommend consuming a diet rich in good fatty acids like avocados, almonds, fish, kale, and flaxseed.

 

Preventing dry hair, dry scalp.

Cold weather is synonymous with having dull and brittle hair. To keep your hair soft, healthy, and strong throughout the colder months, refrain from shampooing as frequently as shampoo can strip your hair of its natural oils, causing the glands to overproduce.  If you can’t stand to go for days without washing your hair, I recommend a dry shampoo. I also like to add a little bit of hair oil (Moroccan Oil makes a great one) before my hair dries to prevent split ends and add moisture. Finally, if all else fails, use a homemade hair mask. A simple, effective hair mask I use is one made of ½ cup of plain yogurt. I simply massage it into damp hair and leave it in for half an hour after which I rinse it out with warm water.  The lactic acid in yogurt helps add moisture to your hair while cleaning as well.
