Just as I update my wardrobe for autumn, my beauty routine will need a new direction as the season starts to change. For me autumn has always meant a fresh start, so I make a few crucial changes in my everyday beauty routine and makeup bag to get cool-weather ready! Here are my best beauty tips for starting your autumn in the best way!
1Start the season with a new routine
Make a new habit of taking vitamins every day; your future self will thank you. I make it easy for myself by taking a pre-packed wellness supplement daily. It gives me everything my body needs: omega 3, astaxanthin and multivitamins all in one!
2Autumn-clean your makeup bag
The start of a new season is a great time to overhaul your makeup bag and make sure anything expired, or no longer used is replaced with fresh new beauty products. I throw away my lipglosses from the summer and update my makeup bag with a classic red lipstick and a fresh mascara. I also make sure to swap my BB cream for a foundation that gives me a little bit more coverage, which I need for the cooler months; my absolute favourite includes mineral powder. Another essential investment is a self tanner to hold on to my tan, as well as shimmering bronzing pearls to keep that summer glow as long as I possibly can.
3Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
Autumn is the perfect time to renew your routine for the colder weather. Make a habit out of always scrubbing in the shower and then remember to moisturise your whole body. I personally get really dry skin as the temperature drops, so I choose a rich body cream. Another routine worth sticking to is applying a thick layer of hand cream before you go to sleep. Last but definitely not least – don’t neglect your face. I always use a serum and in autumn I swap to a face cream that offers more moisture. I have also become absolutely addicted to moisturising gel masks and try to use my favourite once a week.
4Revitalize your hair
Salt water, chlorine, sand and sun all take their toll on your hair no matter how diligent you’ve been this past summer. I make sure to take the time to put a conditioning mask on my hair and wrap it in a warm towel for 15 minutes. The warmth helps the mask soak into the hair follicles and gives your hair a healthier glow and a softer feel.
