Stay Beautiful This Fall – Autumn Beauty Tips

The long hot summer is over, and with it goes summer makeup and beauty care. Fall, with its cooler weather has a whole different set of beauty problems. Here are some tips to keep you looking fresh this fall.

Hair Care

Make sure to deep condition your hair once a week. The dryer air and cooler temps of the fall can dry out your locks in a heartbeat. You don’t want your hair looking as dull as the dead leaves littering the ground. Deep conditioning treatments will keep your hair soft, shiny and healthy.

Try not to shampoo as frequently. Try every other day if you can.

Use a leave in conditioner. You might think your hair gets less damage in the autumn, but you’d be wrong. We all tend to shed more hair during the fall, so conditioner your hair and strengthen that new hair right from the beginning.

Skin care

As the winds pick up and the air grows cooler, you’re going to be more prone to dryness and chapping. Make sure you use a daily moisturizer with a sunscreen during the day. Use a night moisturizer as well, to keep down the chapping and dry skin. Also, use a moisturizing body wash, to keep the rest of your skin from drying out.

Make sure to exfoliate during the fall. You’ll avoid that flaky, dull skin you can get in cooler, windy weather. Just make sure you moisturize well afterward.

Nail care

Colder air also makes your nails more brittle. File them on a regular basis, to avoid snags or breakage. Use a nail and cuticle moisturizer to minimize brittleness and dryness.

Eye care

Just as your skin can be dryer in the autumn, so can the tender, delicate skin around your eyes. Make sure to use a moisturizer specifically for eyes. If you’ve got puffiness and dark circles, drink more water and use an eye serum.

Lip care

Your lips can be prone to chapping and peeling in the cool fall wind. Use a tinted lip balm during the day to combat dryness. For night wear, a moisturizing lip stick is best.
