It’s truly mind-blowing that August ends next week, basically marking the end of summer. It still feels like June. Just sayin’. Everyone knows September 1st is the unofficial start of fall, so it’s now or never to start thinking about our inner basic betch. Whether or not you choose to accept it, fall is coming, which means you should also probs start digging out your comfiest oversize sweaters and make moves for fall fashion. Not only do the cooler temperatures affect our layered outfits, but they also affect our glowing skin that we worked so hard to perfect this summer. As we all know, cold and windy days make our beauty routines a living hell. To mentally, emotionally, and physically prepare yourself for how to transition your beauty routine in the coming weeks, here are some of the best beauty products you’ll want to get your hands on.
1. Invest In A Hair Mask Treatment
If your hair has somehow remained miraculously unharmed by the ocean’s evil wrath this summer, then you’re already winning
and I hate you. Laying out and day drinking in the middle of a hot summer’s day can take a toll on us in more ways than one, one being our hair. To restore some life back into dry, damaged hair, invest in a nourishing and conditioning hair treatment you can use once a week.
2. Incorporate Moisturizing Facials
Let’s be real. How many times did we fall asleep with a face full of makeup on this summer? Or better yet, fall asleep under the sun, thanks to too many spiked seltzers? The end result is never pretty, so we kind of have to make up for that before it gets worse. Start by treating yo’self with a hydrating treatment that enhances your glow and makes your face feel soft af.
3. Extend Your Summer Glow
As usual, we can never have nice things, and if by some rare chance we do get to have something nice, it doesn’t last long. FML. In this scenario, I’m not referring to like, long-lost relationships, a bottle of wine, or a new uncracked iPhone screen. I’m referring to the tan we worked too hard on for it to go unnoticed. Consider using an extender that continuously brings out your summer glow and helps prolong fading for as long as possible.
4. Use Gentle Cleansers
From here on out, you’ll want to stay far, far away from anything harsh, drying, or too strong on your face. Prep your skin for the colder weather by washing your face with a gentle cleanser, preferably one for sensitive skin types. This helps keep natural oils in and prevents your skin from becoming flaky too soon.
5. Exfoliate Your Lips
Fall is most definitely the season of lipsticks. I mean, our obsession for vampy colors is real since each year we stock up on a ridiculous amount of shades to maybe wear like, once. #NoRegrets. To prep and prime your lips for the utmost flawless application, start using a conditioning lip scrub. The exfoliator will gently remove dead skin and keep your lips plump, smooth, and ready for endless swatching this fall.
