September’s almost here, and that means that fall is just around the corner. Autumn means great things for your beauty routine: cooler weather and no more humidity means no more runny makeup, uncooperative hair, and sticky skin! Updating your wardrobe for the fall is a given, but you can’t neglect your hair and skin either. You may feel relaxed and pampered from beach days and vacations, but summer actually takes a pretty big toll on your body, and it’s time to start adapting your beauty routine to transition from season to season. Here are 3 major ways to say “see ya later!” to summer skin and hair damage and “hello” to fall!
Summer Problem: You ditched the sunscreen and now your skin is peely
Fall Solution: Equal parts exfoliation and moisturizing
Winter may be known as the dry skin season, but summer doesn’t exactly contribute to having awesome skin either. Between drying air conditioners, humidity/sweat induced breakouts and the worst summer skin sin, peely sunburns, your skin may not be feeling too great. Luckily, it’s an easy fix for fall: add exfoliation into your routine. Exfoliate to remove dead, dry skin and to help get rid of blackheads, then moisturize to help your skin recover (and get it feeling super soft!)
Summer Problem: Days by (and in) the pool dried out your hair
Fall Solution: Get a trim, try a hair mask, and deep condition like it’s your job
Chlorine and tons of sun exposure are not good for your tresses. Take your dried out summer locks to a whole new, soft and fit-for-fall level with a good trim, deep conditioner, and homemade hair masks. Head to your hairdresser for a freshened up haircut, follow it up with a DIY hair mask (like these) and incorporate regular deep conditioning treatments to your hair routine. You might not even recognize yourself.
Summer Problem: Between sunburns and tan lines, your color’s uneven
Fall Solution: Fake the fix with bronzer and self-tanner (but keep it simple)
Spending time in the summer sun can mean only one thing: you probably have tons of tan lines. If you’re ready to transition into the new season but you want to leave uneven color and streaks behind, it’s time to turn to self-tanner. Get a tanning lotion/spray or a tinted moisturizer that’s as close to your skin color as possible and use it to even out your skin tone. Use a sheer bronzer to even out any tan lines on your face, and step into fall with the perfect end-of-summer glow.
