I love when the change of the season is upon us because it means a shift of consciousness for all. We change the way we tackle our day, the way we handle our weekly routines, and we even change our beauty habits to deal with the climate shifts. As a beauty buff, there’s nothing I look forward to more than a makeup refresh. My skin needs it. My mind needs it. My soul needs it!
So, how do I freshen up my life at the turn of each season? Easy! I look at what changes have occurred and then tend to those needs.
Skincare: SPF always remains in all of my beauty products year round, but during the colder months I opt for moisturizers that offer a thicker barrier to help me combat the harsher weather I’m about to face.
I also look for body wash that offers the same benefits — looking to moisturize more during my shower because my dry skin will need it throughout this time of the year.
Seasonal Scents: I’m a sucker for a good Fall or Winter scent. As soon as the leaves begin to fall, I run to the store and buy all the pumpkin spice products I can find.
Seasonal Cleaning: Back to School is the start of a mom’s new year and personally that’s when I start to clean out all excess clothing, toys, blankets, sheets and kitchen supplies that I’ve been holding onto all year long. This is when my annual purge begins. I continue to shed excess weight until right before Christmas when I then refill my house up with more household items than one could ever need. But hey! It feels good for a few months to have less and I actually LIKE getting rid of things we don’t need. I highly suggest you add this process to your routine.
Hair Masks: To prepare for the winter, I also do a hair moisturizing sealing treatment at the salon. After I get a fresh new cut, I spend a few extra dollars to help strengthen my cuticles and my locks always thank me for it later. You can continue maintenance on your own at home with drugstore buys that are super affordable and effective. However, for your first seal lock, I do suggest hitting up the salon.
