We can no longer deny it anymore: summer is over and winter is well on its way. Therefore, you should give your Seasonal Beauty Changes regimen an autumnal revamp. Check out these 5 Seasonal Beauty Changes changes to make now that autumn has arrived…
Make Your Foundation Shade Different
In the autumn, I usually change my foundation shade as one of the first things I do. As the summer approaches, when I have a bit of natural colour and regularly wear fake tan, I tend to wear Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in #3. During autumn/winter, though, I find that shade a bit too warm for my complexion.
So I switch to Chanel Perfection Lumière Foundation in 10 or 20 Beige. A person wearing the wrong shade of foundation will always stand out, and it’s never a good look. Therefore, even though switching to a lighter color can be difficult, I believe the effort is worth it. Furthermore, I believe bronzer can always be applied afterward to warm the skin.
Get Exfoliating, Exfoliating, Exfoliating
I find that my skin becomes dry once the central heating is turned on, which makes regular exfoliation an essential part of my fall/winter Seasonal Beauty Changes routine. My current favorite scrub is the Frank Body coconut coffee scrub, which smells wonderful and is made from natural ingredients (no microbeads). This body scrub leaves my skin feeling so silky smooth – especially after I follow up with a rich body cream. Lastly, I have to mention Frank Body’s lip scrub and lip balm duo, which gently buffs away dry skin and prevents further chapping.
Replace Your Daily Moisturizer
Those who follow me regularly will know that I have been using Dr. Dennis Gross’s Hyaluronic Moisture Cushion moisturizer throughout this summer. In contrast, now that the weather has cooled down and the heaters are on, I’m in need of something a little richer. At the moment I’m using Perricone MD Oil Free Hydrating Cream.
Once spring and summer have passed, I will return to Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. It is one of my favourite formulas, however, it is too heavy for spring and summer. It is imperative to keep up with your skin’s changing needs if you want to maintain a clear, healthy complexion. Luckily, your skin will tell you exactly what it needs!
Boost Your Berry Tone Load
There’s nothing like a gorgeous berry lipstick in autumn/winter, even if it’s a cliché. Burgundy nail polish also looks rich and sophisticated. With regards to lip color this fall, I’ll be reaching for Chanel La Romanesque Rouge Allure Velvet [pictured], a satin-finish magenta, and Tom Ford Plum Lush Lip Colour Matte, a raspberry red. These products are both long-lasting, but both leave lips feeling a little dry by the end of the day. In this case, the lip scrub from Frank Body comes in handy.
Vitamin Supplements Should Be Taken
During autumn and winter, health officials recommend that everyone in the UK consume vitamin D supplements. This is because there is not enough sunlight and it is difficult to consume the daily recommended amount through food alone. Vitamin D deficiency can cause a number of health problems.
So it is worth speaking to your GP about whether vitamin supplements would be beneficial for you. Additionally, I also take vitamin C and zinc during autumn and winter to strengthen my immune system. Although I stick to a healthy diet, I find that this additional boost helps me to keep winter colds at bay.
